21 DH Race Bike Checks - NZ National Champs 2015
TIL I run wider bars on my trail bike than most elite riders do on their DH bikes.

Opinion: Shiny Objects Aren't The Answer
I love mountain biking for all the same reasons. However, when you ride so much you beat your bikes to shˆt and it's cheaper to replace them every (other) year, than to swap-out all the broken or breaking parts, then I'll take a new bike thanks. That shiny new bike at the start of every season definitely resembles the one you romanticize about by the end of it though. Yeah bikes! Yeah Whistler trail riding!

Transition Scout 1 - Review
Well yeah, I guess I'm looking from the consumer point of view, not the workshop, so five minutes means nothing to me building my own bike, and I prefer the clean look it affords with no rattly ugly zip-tied cables running down the frame, all just tidily running internally. After running external under-the-down-tube cables on my Glory for a season I was stoked to get internal routing as the Giant was feckin eating through both brake and shifter cables.

Transition Scout 1 - Review
Disagree with all of you. It took me a few extra minutes to route my shifter, brake, and reverb hoses on my CovertCF but, thanks to the internal routing, I only had to change my shifter-outer once in two Whistler seasons as there's almost nothing exposed to break. I'm a big fan, and glad it's on this years' models too. Patrol can't arrive soon enough.
