Schwalbe 2015 Nobby Nic - Review
I really do hope they have sorted out the Nics habit of washing out without warning. This had caused me to crash 3 times so I got rid of them . They are also a bastard to set up tubeless. Sounds like they have listened to complaints and all is good now. Still, once bitten twice shy so I will be steering well clear.

Ask Pinkbike: Remedy or Slash, Large frame - short stem, Should I Cut My DH Bar?
I think the guy who bought the Ellsworth should worry more about the fact that he bought one of those monstrosities and not the sizing.

Ask Pinkbike: Rim Width, Angle Headsets, and Carbon Cranks
This is maybe road bike specific but it makes for worrying reading non the less http://www.irishtimes.com/sport/other-sports/carbon-fibre-bicycles-in-the-frame-for-rising-number-of-injuries-1.1879653

Right we all need to put this carbon question into perspective. Carbon=Very Expensive, not a huge weight saving to justify the price, questionable reliability. Still haven't proved to the consumer that it's better than Ali (read above comments) Aluminium=Great Value, still light, LIFETIME WARRANTIES (Unlike your carbon cranks Raceface!!), Proven strength and durability, full consumer confidence. I'm sure you will all tell me if I'm wrong.

Tell you what mate you must have bloody thick finger nails. I was thoroughly inspecting a Renthal carbon bar last week and they were easily as thick as an Ali bar.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
Oh yeah. Just to let ENVE know that Superstar do a great set of Carbon AM Wheels that are £600 and have been independently tested for strength at a university in the UK and they found they were stronger than Flow rims. They also come with a lifetime crash replacement deal and free trueing......Yes ENVE £600!!!!

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
We dont need to get over it when these wheels are a compete and utter rip off!! Just because these bloody things are made from carbon doesnt mean they can justify the price tag. Carbon fibre is not a rare and magical subsatnce its now as common as the dirt on your shoe so charging people this much is a total joke. £500 will buy you a great set of wheels by Hope that'll probably last a hell of a lot longer than these and you won't cry when you bend one. Even if i was a multi millionaire i would not buy these at all, such a waste of money.
