Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR - Review
"Really, Mondraker? This bike needs to be ridden fast as balls but you spec a 740mm handlebar?" Comments like this are so tiresome. Tell Graves that 740 is too narrow I'd also like to see that when an individual reviewer doesn't completely gel with a bike to go back to the manufacturer, get some input and then see if that changes anything, whether it be bike set up or ride style. It is a shame to see slightly negative reviews and pigeon hole bike based on one person's quick opinion. Very entertaining read though :)

Video: Martin Söderström's Road to Recovery Part Two
You can see his right ankle was still really unstable so it was probably a fair amount of pain coupled with the humiliation of being caught on camera in lycra ;)

Radon Slide Carbon 9.0 - Review
Waki does have a point. To a certain extent these big bikes are overkill for most customers actually buying them for what they end up riding and someone buying the Radon as a bike for climbing would most likely be disappointed despite what the review suggests. I do also agree that bike reviews need more perspective and greater comparisons. As a side not, sorry pigman but 3000ft in 6 hours is a flat ride. Thats 500ft climbing an hour. Even in technical, muddy terrain a 500ft climb can be covered in what 10-15 minutes max, 6-8 minutes on the fireroad, so that is a lot of the ride riding the flats or short descents and very little actually spent climbing (assuming a bike that actually climbs well of course). It doesn't really support the argument of big bikes being for big climbs, although I'm sure the Capra does what it supposed to do very well...

GT Factory Racing Add Bell, iXS and Jeep as Sponsors
There are still a ton of "big" companies still involved but they don't put too much in because there is hardly anything for them to get out of modern MTB racing

Radon Slide Carbon 9.0 - Review
"Descends badly" on the basis the tester didn't like the tyres, reckons 1 degree on the HTA makes all the difference (?) and could do with fitting a 20mm shorter stem and an extra bottomless token or two in the Pike.... sounds like a lot but nothing there is an expensive change and I'd much rather see testers make the changes to get a bike riding as per their personal preferences rather than write it off entirely in one big aspect of the ride like descending which is potentially a bit misleading for those reading a review.

Hilarious to think of PEF as a "hipster". The guys a beast!
