Video: MTB and BMX: Playmobil StopMotion
The attention to detail, the really little details HAS to be applauded, the time it would have taken to put this together..... would be surprised if playmobil didn't pick this up as an ad ( if they haven't commissioned it in the first place)...

Bitches Brew - Is Mountain Biking the Pinnacle of Human Athletic Performance?
Surfing....If you surf, you'll understand, if you don't, then you won't even have a clue just how difficult a sort it is to just learn to do the basics, let alone at the top level, On a bike you have plenty of constants, i.e. the bike, the trail, you sit in the same spot, your feet are in the same place, on the pedals every time, you can repeat the same line over and over until you get it right. With surfing, the ONLY constant is the board, everything else changes, your position on the board is different EVERY wave, EVERY wave is different, no two are the same, then add in that if you're surfing reef breaks, that the water is shallow, if you fall you will be bragged across lethal coral, drawing is a real risk, as well as impact injures etc etc,, oh then there's the man in the grey suit, but I won't go into that. Mountain biking is a great sport, but at ground level, it's riding a bike, the only thing that's moving is you... I love it, but it is no way the pinnacle of human performance...

Ibis' Ultra Wide 741 Carbon Wheels - Review
They are rock solid because the sidewalls are SO thick, nothing to do with tyre pressure...

Ibis' Ultra Wide 741 Carbon Wheels - Review
@hobnob Sorry, but you must be out of your mind saying carbon rims " aren't suitable for hard MTB use". Ratboy, Peaty etc seem to get on just fine with them on world cup DH, are you saying they don't ride hard? I'd be more inclined to think that you have a small case of "bad workman blaming tools" if you get through wheels like that... maybe look a little closer at your riding rather than saying that carbon wheels are no good for hard MTB use....

Bontrager Rhythm Elite Handlebar - Review
I'm still amazed no one has done a "fit-guide" for handlebars. I've been thinking for a while that bars should be fitted to a person based primarily on their shoulder width and arm length. I'm no scientist but reckon there has to be a formula where arm length, shoulder width are taken into account, then the little grey area of the style of riding taken into account to spit out the "ideal" bar width for a given user. The three points of contact between rider and bike, 1- saddle, you can buy different shapes/ sizes to suit. 2. pedals- the same, 3- handlebars, yes there are loads of different widths available, yet at the moment the general consensus is "wider is better". The other thing that I've been thinking about is the stress/ strain placed on joints and muscles. There has to be a point where both are over extended when a bar that is too wide for the riders arm length/ shoulder width is used. At that point the benefits are gone and the extra width becomes a hindrance. A 780mm bar for me at 5"9 with broad shoulders is probably about as wide as I can go without over stressing joints/ muscles. Likewise a girl that's 5"4 with narrow shoulders would get the same feel from say 711mm. Of course the one factor that is the same for both is the wheels are the same size (leaving out the 26/ 27.7 debate) so leverage comes into play, however, I'm never going to be 5"4 with narrow shoulders and she's never going to have broad shoulders so that's irrelevant thoughts anyone ;)?

cut down a set of raceface NEXT SL 35mm 760's (which weigh the same as rentals 740mm) and you have a set of even lighter than the lightest carbon 740mm bars on the market...
