I should have known better than to give my opinion on the internet...

They could have made that a really good edit, but it just seemed way too overdone. Too many flashy camera tricks and editing for my liking...and dub-step, really it's not 2010 anymore!

I obviously still ride and race when I'm not at sea and just take the risk. The UK Union for seafarers is Nautilus, I'm not sure about the US one though but I don't believe that there is any way that they can fire you for getting an injury, my company actually wants people to be more active when not at sea so when I tell them what I do they think it's great. In all seriousness it is a brilliant career and you get to see loads of things that normal people can't even begin to comprehend, and as for riding time, well I do miss it on ship but then I like my job so much that it's not too bad, then you think of all the time off you get off as well when not at sea and it's even better. You could probably manage a good 2-3 month riding trip away (when not at sea) and it wouldn't have any effect on income or loosing jobs etc. So yeah, go for it!

I already have career on ships and let me tell you everything TFreeman said is true. It only takes a fraction of second for everything to wrong, whether you're just out swimming in the ocean or perched on the bridge of a 250,000t bulker. No matter how safe the sea looks, never, ever take it for granted as it will just as quickly come and stab you in the back.

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.
