Mavic Crossmax XL Wheelset - Review
@ waki, Barrel and JC also run Mavic rims, race the Enduros which the rear is 21mm internally, I know I run a set, sayimg that I am a wide everything fan I wanted to test the Enduro Mavics for a stiffness comparison vs say Enves which Ive fun for the last 2 seasons, to understand cost vs perfomance and if ROI is really as big or any that the industry keeps selling us. Ive been super impressed by Mavic Enduros, the wheels are as stiff if not stiffer than my Enve set, are super fast and strong Ive ridden these on some narly narly trails btw 27.5" vs 26" Enves and still they feel every bit as stiff, tires Charge and Roam have been incredible, especailly the Roam which is tiny but it grips way beter than it should, Ive run UST for years and Mavic cant be beat, I DH UST on my DeeMaxs never burped, I did however burp my Roam after letting too much pressure out on a wet and very rooty trail, but this happened on another trail later on on a hardpack trail when I came up short gapping a 3m hole. So far bee super reliable, would love it if Mavic would make a wide rim, maybe weight strength in alloy would suffer. But the experiment proved one thing Carbon is way too big a gap in price vs perfomance, I can buy 3 sets of these for a Chris King set on Enve rims here. If I was to build another carbon wheelset it would be on Derby rims probably. Just saying.

HT Components X1 Pedal - Review
Usually Im a big fan of CB platform pedals but my Mallets DH have me going crazy, ran Minnaars and new VXIs clipless, im alwyas unclipping, Ive rebuilt the pedals completely, foing through cleats at an alarming rate and these look the bomb, cant use Shimano pedals so these maybe the thing I need.

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
I dnt think its just about the bike, though I could care less about DJ segments and FF them. I think everything is over done and film makers have gone to far focusing on perfection which is fine evey now and again, but I still prefer how older vids were filmed I never tire of them, NWD, Collective to some degree still the benchmark flr perfection but almost too pefect like Anthill films I feel robbed. NWD and Earthed series were value, the moive was just one lart the extras were lften even better, because it was raw! I loved Freecaster DVDs after race season and still hammer Freecaster 2011, its such a great watch, long epic Warner and raw! Life cycles was great but I feel this took MTB DVDs in the wrong direction. With so much content online, you have to give value, I still prefer mags to ipad or pc content and DVDs to webisodes! Bur for instant short gratification a short vid or news is where PB, Vital NSB Dirt are great, but anything over a minute on a eline mag and Im shuttting down, just over exposed content, my brain has about 10s before it switches off now plus the BS on sites really suts me down too, so ride more punch keyboard less thank gawd yeahaaaa Love news on race season so cant wait for that. DVD will always rule, bring back those dudes who pioneered they were legends, Il buy the next Earthed or NWD!

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
Key point manh missing here, Enduro is not XC in that equipment needed to compete at Enduro clothing knee pads, full face helmets and multiple stages in a day, this isnt a sprint its more like a MTb version of Rally cars. So stop comparing it to XC or DH Saying that Enduro is meant to be extreme, and the key here is onky the stages down are timed, even though event location to event locations rules differ around liasing to next stage. I would like to see it pedalled bit not XC tough or marathon tough, again taking into account that a Full Face is needed, knee oads elbow pads in some events are manadatory and clothjng has to be appropiate to handle things. We do not need to dumb down or make Enduro more accessible, thats whats killed off all other disiplines over time, its been successful becuase its been true to itself, if it needs to be tougher at some venues then add more stages or spread over 2 days, dont break whats not broken and dont let money hungry organisations and promoters ruin a great disipline,msomething many have missed or lost over the years in other disiplines becuase of said agendas. Keep it real keep it simple stupid, dont fuck it up..
