Acre Traverse Shorts - Review
It's a shame that those cheap Asian/Pacific labourers are good at making stuff compared to American manufacturers

Charge Bikes - An interview with Ash Clark
I still don't understand why bike companies have spent the last few years telling us that fitting a fatter tyre to a 26 wheel won't be beneficial nor will it give us any of the advantages of a 650b/27.5 bike (even making it worse/slower/heavier etc than standard 26 tyres) and yet now they are telling us that fitting a larger tyre to a 650b bike will not only give you a diameter similar to a 29 but it'll make it the best thing ever ridden. Not sure if I'm just too cynical to believe all this or if it's all some nefarious scheme cooked up by bike companies to make keyboard warrior spend their money

Camelbak, Smith, Sombrio - Press Camp 2015
Had several set of their shorts, and although faded my 07 Pinner shorts are still going strong (unlike many other brands I've owned), their jerseys seem to last as well. Looking forward to seeing their new stuff in the flesh.

Results: 4X Pro Tour Winterberg
I love 4X, it's great to watch. I just wish they had had the support and funding to build tracks that really showed off the potential (there's been a few) with rocks, roots, etc. I know that most are too rough for a BMX but in a lot of videos the footage makes them look smooth. Maybe it'll get a resurgence in the future and will be allowed to reach it's full potential. It was awesome that you could pretty much watch the whole race from top to bottom unlike DH. And I love the head to head format

7iDP Covert Knee Pads - Review
Same here. Only problem is I'm down to the last pair in my stockpile and can't seem to find anything to replace them with. Have tried most other brands (and 661 pads) and they just don't compare

Rose Uncle Jimbo 2 - Review
They say the Guide brakes have been well received. But isn't the problem with Avid/SRAM that the brakes always work well from new but tend to dissolve after about 12-18 months? I used to defend them until I switched to a pair of XTs and now would never go back.

Video: Checking Out Some Sweet Rides With Tippie Part 3
Yeah, one of the few guys on the circuit willing to speak the truth about the freestyle scene rather than bleat the company words verbatim. Andreu Lacondaguy is another not afraid to say how it is.
