Transition Patrol Carbon 1 - Review
"the Motorhead fan who secretly knows how to dance the salsa" This has to be the craziest/ most awesome description of a bike's handling!

Pinkbike Poll: Who Has the Right of Way - the Climber or the Descender?
Interesting topic. Here's my 2 (euro) cents (or 7 drachmas): I see right of way both as a practical arrangement but also as a way to determine who has the biggest responsibility when it comes to avoiding collisions. From a safety perspective the downhill rider should ALWAYS take care not to crash into uphill riders and to be safe and in control. I forgot it once and it almost lead to an accident and me feeling really stupid! As far as practical arrangements go I don't know what's better. Personally I always slow down and yield (unless the other rider/ trail user) tells me to go ahead. The main reasons for this are: - I don't know if the other person knows about right of way and I don't want to cause an accident or confrontation - I'm not very competitive. If I'm able to get out and ride that day I'm happy so the minor inconvenience of yielding won't hurt me. In general I believe common sense should be applied. If it's a large group vs a single rider it would be easier for the single rider to yield. Either way it's best to be courteous and don't demand the other person to yield. What everyone should demand is that all riders (especially downhill riders) ride safely. Btw if you're ever in Greece and trying to nail a KOM you can always shout "referendum" or "IMF" to the rider coming the other way. It usually scares them and makes them bail in the bushes. :P
