Spank Oozy Trail295 Bead Bite Wheelset - Review
After seeing nothing but good reviews for the older spank oozy wheelset I bought the 29er version. Sadly I have had nothing but trouble with them. Some spokes would come completely loose every 3-4 rides, and they were hard to mount as tubeless unless I used a split tube as air would leak from the valve hole and more worryingly the sleeve joint. Finally after only 3 months riding, the rim split in 2 at the sleeve joint during a slide out. Photo on my profile. Gutted as I had seen nothing but good reviews, so either I got unlucky, or the 29er version is significantly more fragile than the 26er which is typically reviewed here and elsewhere... Eitherway I learned the importance of welded rims...

Pinkbike Poll: Why Do You Love It?
I love racing. Everything about it, training, the stress on the start line, relief after having a good run, meeting up with hundreds of bikers... As a bonus this means being fit and exploring new trails, areas, regions, countries even! "Racing is Life - Everything Else is Just Waiting" Steve McQueen

Lapierre's New DH Bike - First Look
I really like how the gave it oldschool geometry, so that in 2 years they can take a cm off the back and add 1-2 out the front and sell a bunch more bikes, thats very clever!

Video: Downtime With Steve Smith
I've never noticed any one complain about his style. I think he is probably the most entertaining podium rider. Similarly to Blenkinsop and Hill, you can tell he is on the very edge of grip/control, whereas Gwin/Atherton/Minnaar etc all appear to be in full control. Controlled agression, halfway between the loose flat (or ex-flat) pedal riders and clipped in podium regulars. You cant possibly say his run in Leogang last year wasnt stylish, and that was with a world title on the line!

The New Scottish Royalty: Enduro World Series, Round 2 - Tweedlove
A riding buddy told me he won around €200 for coming 14th in a french DH race over 10 years ago... Sponsors and prize pools come and go in waves I guess. Hopefully these guys have podium/top10 bonuses written into their contracts! Although you would be surprised how many of the top 20 are not actually professional racers and have to work on the side.

Day One Results: EWS Round 2 TweedLove
EWS facebook confirmed there was an issue (probably with timing), it's still not clear is they can get the times for the 4th stage or if it will be cancelled. What happened during the BDS when there was an issue, could they recover the times?

Day One Results: EWS Round 2 TweedLove
He was told "no one can win on a 26", so he is aiming to get a 26th place finish and still win the overall!
