Final Results: Enduro World Series, Round 1
26" die hard here lads, now that said, Point one: some brands will still make a 26" Commencal HipHop dam fun bike, and thats its purpose not an Enduro racer, many still ride for fun and not for Strava! Point 2: Ive been trying out a few 27.5" and still don't know if I like them or not esp when some top riders tell me my bike is the best they're ridden, wak wak aye! Short for, yeah! But what I can tell is that over time you stay fresher on a bigger wheel eg use less energy in key areas say momentum over a rise, pedal strokes up a short hill,on a course this all adds up over stages to seconds and minutes for us mere mortals, I been saying this for awhile look at day 1 Graves fresh fit but I don't care how fit you are, he still used more energy than Jerome, Jeromes stages with no wins but consistency bears this out, not all bike for sure as he's a smart rider and rides that way too yet still fast, So for me 26" is just as fast if not faster but you use more energy and that over 2 days or many one day stages smashes you more than 27.5" Waki is right about bike setup pros know if 5psi is missing they feel it! Still though Enduro is the winner on the day and Chille fantastic place and hope it stays on the EWS calendar Congrats to AC and Jerome just amazing! Going to be a tough fight to the end this year, Graves will win rounds, Maes will win a round and Justin Leov 2nd stage 5 he will be too 3 very soon I'm betting.

X-Fusion Trace RL2 Fork - Review
Vengence Vector here awesome performance, exactly as WayneP says amazing. Bought a Fox digi pump while back, battery gone flat, asked Fox how to replace it, answer you don't buy a new pump WTH the most expensive shock pump in history and for a 1.50 buck battery CR22 I have to buy a whole new pump, no easy way to open her up fully sealed. LBS did it, replaced battery pump works but no gauge working, most expensive battery ever, thanks Fox.

Pinkbike Poll: Three Wishes
1: less dumb mountainbikers as the sport grows more stupid and mountain bikers are born 2: that stupid mtbers stop asking and dumbing down trails do not remove rocks cut out roots ,respect the code, land, trail builders that spent hours scoping the line and creating a trail for them and others to enjoy. And don't walk all over that nicely shaped tranny take off or landing thid was not shaped for fricken hrs for muppets in XC shoes to stomp all over its for riding, refer number 1. 3, ride trails that you have the ability to ride dont walk black diamond trails if u know you cant competently ride a blue trail, this is not rocket science!

Spotted: Danny Hart's Prototype Giant Glory 27.5
Will this b the end on Dannys awesome style on a bike, 27.5" def tonned down Blienkys style, watching SB 07,08 seasons on DVD he seemed faster more exciting to watch, next well c the return of Ghey skin suits! Hopefull Danny just getting ready for the South African WC leg, I just hope the Sarfie trail builders have stepped it up to legitimise that track and bring some narly surprises to WC teams and the marketing agents! Go Danny!
