Schwalbe Rock Razor Tire - Reviewed
Probably not the best tire for here though anyway. I've the Magic Mary on the back for about a month now and its superb, going to get one on the front asap.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Train To Ride?
Jesus Tom, so much aggression I hope you put that into your lifting. I'm not a serious lifter, not at all, never have been never will be, but again I never ever said I was. Whatever your issue is with Kettlebells it seems to be a serious gripe, more power to you. I've done my research and know what works for me and I've been doing it years, as for fannying about I'm not the one posing in a mirror with my bicep curled and taking pictures of myself, so fanny on lad. I'm not as closed minded to say one or the other works best. But I guess a more open mind comes with being "a middle aged man." My condescension was merely a reaction to you escalating an argument, that didn't matter because you are too shallow minded to accept that I said "you don't need a gym" and are a little butt hurt that I offended your gym lifestyle and your way of training. If I did do that then I sincerely apologise, wasn't my intention. Everyone one else who replied to my comment did so with some funny remarks and a bit of banter and you just went on the offensive. Lets just leave it there though, you stick to your training and I'll stick to mine, and hopefully this forum will be big enough that our paths will never cross again.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Train To Ride?
@Tom666, Sorry, clearly with all of your 17 years on the planet (incidentally only two years more than I've been riding bikes off road) you know much more. I said "Deadlifting and squatting are linear movements and will focus on specific muscle groups" i never said they weren't compound movements. They most certainly are compound movements, in linear form and if only done correctly (ask cross fit guys about bad form...I'd say you know a few) . I never said one or the other was better, I merely said body weight and the training I do (kettlebell, sandbag, battlerope) give better results for me. I don't need a gym membership ( I've had plenty) for the riding I do. I don't need big muscles I'm not trying to win a strong man comp or take selfies of myself in the gym curling my bicep. I need fictional, lean, conditioned muscle to avoid injury and to keep the middle age spread off (you'll learn all about that, trust me) So instead of saying I don't know what I'm talking about, how about reading my comment first and maybe speak to your crossfit trainer (or someone who trains but doesn't do it to puke and then do more) before making rash comments and basically blowing comment out of the water by saying kettlebell training has no relevence to cycling ( maybe google Arron Gwin or the Athertons training regimes and come back to me) But above lets keep an open mind.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Train To Ride?
^^ Sorry, don't agree with you there, Deadlifting and squatting are linear movements and will focus on specific muscle groups, Kettlebell swings will train everything. €50 for a kettlebell or €0 for body weight vs however much for gym membership with better results (in my case) I know which I'd be going for.

Dont need a gym, get your own gear and train at home, you should be only benching if you want sexy tits. Grab a kettle bell or a sandbag, or some battle ropes (or all of the above) , eat right get your cardio conditioning up and you'll see the benefits on the bike. Functional strength and cardio conditioning to supplement your riding (which should be your main training anyway) works for me. I'm not trying to win races, but just better myself every spin.

Nukeproof Mega AM 275 - Review
Same and agreed, I'm usually last up all the climbs but not too far behind and f**king plow on the downs, great bike . Heavy? Yes! Fun? Absolutely! Can handle anything in doubt. Great do it all bike for this country anyway.

Pinkbike Poll: Are You a Fair Weather Rider?
If you want to ride in Ireland you're going to be cold, wet and muddy the majority of the time. With the right gear it doesn't really matter though.
