Specialized 2FO Flat Shoes - Review
Being a flats fan, I moved from 5.10 (which is the rough number of rides before they fall to bits... 5 to 10 that is) to Sombrio shoes. Shame that you cant get the Sombrio's anymore, much cheaper, much more comfortable and much more robust.

HT Components X1 Pedal - Review
I have ideas to solve this problem (if in fact it is a problem). A slightly different approach to the clipped pedal. I am a development engineer to trade. 20 years on an still loving it.

HT Components X1 Pedal - Review
Make them lower profile. I want clips to feel the same as using a thin flat pedal and sombrio shoes. Not like I am on old school thick flats with 5.10s on. Now less reinventing the wheel and get inventing a clipped dh pedal that is not an xc pedal with a cage. Oh and hill has proven thato take away the enduro from dh and flats still rule. :)

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
Dear Pinkbike. Great that you have made a statement to stir up a debate. But a statement without data is useless. Your conclusion about Whistler us poor. Please validate it with information from the top 10 overall. Transfer times taken a nd time allowed any mechanicals playing a part. Effort level of riders with evidence. Without this it is just someone's thought. Or are you saying that some guys had better endurance than others..... then look at the top 10 from the EWS with the easiest transitions. Remove any climatic and mechanicals input and what are the facts..... or are you just stirring it up? :)

Continental - Der Kaiser Projekt
Put the high roller on the rear or a magic Mary. Magic can be run at the lowest pressure without getting a puncture but high roller has a better edge for cornering and better braking. Save your 2nd kaiser for the front.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
These wheels are a clear example of trying to reinvent the wheel and coming up with the wheel. If you earn enough money to afford these you most likely realise that life is not about status symbols. Ztr rims just work and are great for not getting punctures or running tubeless. Yes they will fail. But you can get spares with ease and lace them yourself without breaking the bank. You won't be worried about scratching your very expensive wheel (or them cracking), you will just get out and enjoy riding. No need for these today, tomorrow or anytime in the future.

Continental - Der Kaiser Projekt
Nice DH tyre. They do roll slower than some of the competition. Very good up front. Love some black chilli up front for the wet winters. Kaiser or mud king. Still run others out back though. Shame you can't pick them up for great prices like you can the competition.
