Onza Ibex Tire - Review
@arna86, cannot possibly agree with you more. All these people making comparisons with mass produced budget car tyres just don't get it. Bike tyres ARE performance tyres and you pay for what you get for. You want to go down your LBS and buy those £12 Indonesian made ones "because they last long and they're cheap" then go for it, just have fun with that grip. Whilst they may be expensive and the bike industry does seem to taking more of our money if you want the best for your ride you get it. It is the same principle with cars, you buy the cheapest tyres available and you get a very bad compound, carcass and badly designed tread that seriously effects handling, braking etc. Whilst I don't expect everybody to go out and get a set of R888s or go and spend £150 buying tyres for their bike I do expect to think a little bit and realise it's not that bad.

Video: Dartmoor Gravity Hardtails - Hornet vs Primal
I know that they can cause joint/back issues and they're not for everbody, but when you see everybody complaining at the price of bikes I wonder why more people don't buy hardtails (this may be very short sighted of me but I'll continue). I've ridden hardtails since I started riding about 5 years back and have never wanted to change simply for the reason that they're so much fun on my local terrain. Nothing beats the feeling of beating nearly 3/4 of the field of full sus enduro bikes costing twice the price of my Ragley at a local enduro.

Video: Forest of Dean - UK's First 4 Wheel Gravity Bike Trail
Saw somewhere the other day that corkscrew was being closed as a quad/ATV track was being built, any chance there was some confusion between quad and 4 wheeler and this is the actual reason?

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
I totally agree, the group edits such as the Dudes of Hazzard, S4P (Brendog, Reynolds, Wilkins etc.) and This is Peaty capture the spirit of the sport, which is having fun. Whilst I still sit there in awe at some of the highly edited slo-mo edits we see now they do tend to get a bit serious, I prefer to just watch Sprung instead.

Video: Deity - In the Groove with Tracy Moseley
Gawton's my local and I have to say it's pretty damn good. But, there's something about FoD that keeps me coming back, yeah the top section may be pedally but the rest of the tracks on offer seem to hit that sweet spot of speed, roughness and technicality.
