Shimano XTR Trail Drivetrain - Review
Being able to push the chain back on VS never having it drop off in the first place is a no brainer to me. Single ring FTW.

May: Good Month or Bad Month?
Looks like the weather might be crap for this weekends WC at Fort William too! Ffs, I guess I'll be packing loads of jumpers and a good waterproof.

Rumble in the Dark. Albstadt, Germany UCI XC World Cup
I love how the special edition of the BMW Cruise M Bike has "anti lock disc brakes" HAHAHA. What a novel way to market Shimano Acera brakes.

Results: Rose Bikes BDS 2015: Round 2
Let's remember that Gee does stuff like the 'Atherton Experience Day' where the team meets and rides with fans for a day. There are many teams and atheletes who don't do anything like that but get a lot less hate.

ION bike protectors K_CAP and K_CAP_SELECT
"Feature one helps you to gain unrivalled acceleration when pedalling." It's a bold claim, i'll give them that.

Trek Stache 9 - Review
"29+ does mute some of the sensations that I've come to appreciate with 'regular' sized tires - the handling simply isn't as precise in technical terrain" So the handling manages to be worse than a regular 29er? And this new trend is meant to be a good thing hahaha

Intense Announces the M16
I think the head tube area is what disappoints me the most. The earlier spy shots on VitalMTB looked much sleeker: http://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/features/PIT-BITS-World-Cup-Lourdes-France,8798/PIT-BITS-Intense-M16-at-Lourdes-World-Cup,88714/sspomer,2 Maybe that's a different size to the ones pictured here? Or perhaps Intense had to add more strength at the head tube on the production bikes.

10 for 10 - #2 Aaron Gwin
I wouldn't call myself religious now but I did go to church with my parents for years when I was growing up. However I still don't understand it when athletes thank God/Christ for putting them there. Doesn't God have anything better to do? Like helping out the people starving to death around the world? As a kid in church, those people, people who really need the help, were the kind of thing we were encouraged to pray for. Not some guy who wants to win a bike competition. Another reason "I'm only here because God wanted me to be" seems like a strange concept to me: If I trained as much as these top racers and won a WC I would feel really shitty saying that part of my success came from something completely out of my control. What if I didn't win? Does God not like me anymore? Of course Gwin is free to believe anything he likes and it's good that he is so motivated by his beliefs. Not trying to start a christian/atheist bust up here. [bet one starts anyway, right?]
