RockShox RS-1 - Review
Must get my credit card out, this will no doubt save me 6.23s per hours riding, add that to the 2s per week I have not yet saved by changing wheel size..... I faced up to the fact that it is me that is the issue a long time ago :)

Shimano British Downhill Series, Bike Park Wales - On Board with Fox
I am sure that Neil would not thank you for calling him English. It's how the kids speak up here in the North of Scotland. Everything is rad to the kids. Good luck Laurie and Neil. Both nice kids.

FOX Athletes at World Champs- Press Release
So. If Sam had not had an incident would Fox have won? Fox employ the too females, they could be on marz or RS and win. Oh and cane creek don't sponsor any top riders. So you pay for the majority of top riders and get a win. Having timed between fox RC4, rock shox vivid air and coil and cane creek on the same track, same day. All setup. Cane creek was fastest for me followed by rock shox and fox some way behind. All timed on free lap and all a minimum of a type test so 3 runs. Different shocks do suit different riders though.

Preview: Shimano BDS - Bike Park Wales
Wish I could make it. Just too far away to justify taking today and Monday off work. Too much work to do to do that :( Even if that means sacrificing a 2nd overall in Vets.

Results: 2014 World Championships, Hafjell - Timed Training
You said "Betsie clearly doesn't know the Rotarua course where Sam tool home gold. Lots of pedalling on that course." So, what are you trying to say in this statement that is relevant to 2014, as this race was in 2006, some 8 years ago. If that race was today, do you think that Sam of today would still take gold against the riders of today, and on the bike he rides today? The Sunday and the Nukeproof are entirely different bikes in the way they ride and especially in the way they pedal. I cannot vouch for a 27.5 Pulse, but I did race the Sunday and the Scalp for over a year on each bike, the Nukeproof is an exceptional bike for carrying speed and is very fast (although I never enjoyed racing it), the Sunday pedals exceptionally well, a little like the other DW link bikes I have and do owned; Azure (I still have), 6 point, and DHR (my current race bike). I would go back to a Nukeproof, although I never enjoyed riding it (especially as it pedals so poorly), it is a very capable and fast bike due to how it carries speed and how it can hold lines and make them smooth like no other bike. I would love Sam to win BTW, if I could pick any rider to win it would be a Scot from TWR though :)

First time in many years that I have not gone to Fort William WC. The track was pretty well groomed, Troy at the BDS just before the worlds was something else, especially at the deer fence section. Why would you refer to and where is the relevance for 2014 and comparing any pedaling to a track like Rotarua (or is it Rotorua?) and a race from 2006!!! The sport has moved on a bit since 2006, for the better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ldv_bgX49R8 https://www.rootsandrain.com/venue221/whaka-forest-rotorua/ Negative prop me if you like, but lets see who wins tomorrow.

It's a great track, but not enough gnarr and too much pedalling for Hill to win. Hill wins on the 100% dh tracks. Put in some pedalling and he looses too much time.

New Fork Technology From BOS
I would love too. But the cost is unbelievable. Would like to try a boss air out back but £400 2nd hand. No way.
