Photo Epic: World Cup XCO Finals - Meribel
Yeah I raced Cannock, I'v never liked racing there, and although the rock garden was a good feature, it was still a very tame course.

Photo Epic: World Cup XCO Finals - Meribel
I don't run one for xc racing mainly due to weight, and due to the point that hampsteadbandit made. My 29er xc racer descends well enough with the saddle up, and the geometry actually feels slightly wrong with the saddle down. I would definitely use a dropper for fun riding on a trail bike, as I can't argue that a bike becomes more 'fun' with the saddle down, but for xc racing, where most time is made on the climbs, the extra weight just is not worth it. I also can't think of any british national xc courses from this year that have come close to needing a dropper, but to be honest I haven't been impressed with most of the courses this year compared with last year.

Wolf Amongst The Sheep - Story About Your Neighbour's $20,000 Problem With Stolen Bikes
If 'Tom' would kindly come forward and disclose this guys details so we can fuck his life up then it would be much appreciated. There's something wrong with the world when scum can get caught with $20000 worth of parts in their garage with evidence that some of it is stolen, and then still walk away free, and still get to keep all the parts!!!! Makes me sick

Scott Elite BOA Shoe - Review
A friend of mine has a pair of specialized s-works shoes with the BOA system on, and he has had to replace the BOA system twice in the last year due to them siezing up. Last time he had to dismantle the BOA system in order to actually take the shoe off. These may be fine for dry and dusty california, but as soon as any grit or mud gets involved then they've had it.

Tech Spotlight - 5 Minute Bubble Bleed
Not like any other hydraulic system out there. Have you ever tried to bleed an avid? Tbh as someone else has already mentioned in a comment above, shimano are so easy and quick to bleed that you may as well do a full bleed on them rather than this method.

Video: Lee Gratton Winter XC Race Training
You mean you cant see past the skills required to manoeuvre the bike so well with those 'big wheels', 'narrow bars', and 'high saddle', and the balls required to ride like that with only some lycra to protect you rather than body armour and a full face?

First Ride - SRAM Debuts DH Specific 7 Speed Drivetrain
Infact the the chain is actually now thinner. The old 10 speed chains are thicker than the 11 speed

First Ride - SRAM Debuts DH Specific 7 Speed Drivetrain
At first galnce I thought, yes someone has finally come out with a 7 speed dh groupset, just what everyone has been asking for. Then I noticed that it uses a nice thin 11 speed chain. Why the fuck would you bother designing a 7 speed groupset and then take away one of the key advantages of a low gear groupset, being a stronger chain. Also, the fact that you have to use an XD freehub body to use a 10 tooth low gear seems abit pointless to me when you could just go for a slightly bigger front chainring for a fraction of the price. The 10 tooth cog makes sense for enduro and xc so that you can have the massive gear range with a single ring up front, for DH its just pointless.

Talking 650B DH Bikes with Trek
@headshot, the only shite being spoken here is from you. You are clearly one of these people who have never ridden a 650B or 29er, yet think that you are an expert on the subject. 650B is faster than 26", 29" is faster than 650B. Thats not opinion, thats fact and science.

It would be cheaper for me to buy a new saddle, then pay for tickets and transport to watch a world cup, and then get the Athertons to sign it for me there then it would be to buy this
