First Look: Renthal Fatbar Carbon
40mm hell yeah want for DH bike and Enduro bike, run std alloy Renthal bars n lock on Kev grips now, but alloy bar is too harsh very stiff compared to anything else, love the bend though and strength, feel very secure, but does add to hand fatigue! Btw where can you get these now, no where here has them yet, cheers

Video: Intense Grom Session With Lopes
Lopes schooling em, Tracer check, little fork, 34 XFusion Sweep, groms Downhill bikes! Id say Schooled... Sic jump line and jump, out and up is always fun, looks well made eg not dirt jump kicker style. Bet the lads learned more that day than they did in a year.

Awesome, definitely women get a raw deal on coverage, Hannah's doing a great job raising that profile world wide and great to see not just elite WC get interviews, riders at all levels gender are the true foundations of our sport thats how the top riders get to be at the top, event organisers, online mags, and elite very top riders should respect that more! Never met her, but huge fan, go Hannah a sponsors dream!

Lapierre 2015: Three Trailbikes, an Enduro Racer and the Team's New DH Weapon
Old people will love the e bike, dam baby boomers, wrecked the world, now wrecking MTB too fat lazy but they still want to be cool... Love the whole conception behind the DH bike makes good sense, design execution just struggling with it, why they couldn't gave design a similar concept into a layout like MX, eg vertical shock placing or slightly forward like MX, Im sorta thinking in style of say an Ancillotti shock placing, not frame design just layout, still think the Sunday had one of the best layout designs ever. Just looks right to me, this ahh same with Turners DHR, all the crap gies straight onto the rear shock mount du bushings, seems design over function to me, something you rarely see in MX bikes for the better too. Still go Blienky, Emmelline etc

Pinkbike Poll: What Style of Grip Do You Prefer?
Renthal Kevlar lock ons, tried the rest, best for me, others usually have one weakeness, thickness, comfort, wear rate, these tick all boxs though Id still prefer slightly large bolts heads, weakness of all lock ons, still sufficient but orefer one size up. Wearing so well though and comfy and grippy in all conditions,
