Hi, These are my almost new 5Ten Freerider VXi Element shoes for sale. They're a new 2014 model, using the VXi Stealth sole, and 'weather proof' (pretty much waterproof) uppers. I've work them about 20 times since I got them just before last Christmas. Only ever used for riding, so the soles aren't destroyed from walking on tarmac all the time. They're 99% perfect condition. The only marks are some black scuffs on the inside rear from my black XT cranks rubbing. All stitching is tight, all the seams are good. The sole is incredibly soft and tacky, so looks a bit 'matt', but it's in no way damaged. These shoes retail for £95, if you can find them in stock anywhere. Only selling them because I'm tending to use SPD's more nowadays. £55 includes postage to you if needed, other collection from South Wales. Any questions, message me on here or text me. Thanks.

Hi all, Up for sale here is my 2014 Nukeproof Mega AM 27.5 frame, in size large, complete with RockShox Monarch Plus RCT3 shock, Nukeproof headset, Nukeproof seatclamp, Hope Ceramic bearing bottom bracket, Shimano 160mm rear brake mount, and Rockshox Maxle rear axle. This little lot cost £1550 back in Janurary 2014, so it's only 6 months old. It's been riden about 15-20 times, and even then it's never been crazy stuff. Functionally the frame is 100% perfect. The shock is barely bedded in, the headset and bottom bracket (although dirty) are still smooth, and all the hardware is crisp, clean and completely un-rounded. There are areas of cable rub on the frame. There's a bit where the rear derailleur cable crosses the chainstay, and a bit on the non-drive side where the seat stays cross the seat tube. There are also some small scuffs in the paint on the top tube and top of the down tube from where it's been locked up. See the pictures for how small these marks are. The frame has routing for a Reverb Stealth (31.6mm) and ISCG05 tabs. The headset is to take a tapered steerer. So, basically brand new, 165mm travel 650b frame, as riden by Sam Hill. A stunning frame. There's a picture of how I had it built just for reference. £900 cash on collection, South Wales. If you want it posting, you're paying the courier fees and PayPal fees. I'll consider a trade for a proper XC 29er hardtail/short travel bike, but nothing else. Any questions, send me a message on here or text me. Many thanks Joe

Build A Park And Then A Race Team
It was very difficult to get good footage of the guys riding in the trees. The wide open trails tend to look better on camera. If you head to trails like Melted Welly, Vicious Valley, or Bonneville, you'll find plenty of tight, twisty, between the trees riding at BikePark Wales.

Nico Vouilloz Injured in Training Accident
Whilst I completely agree with your point, my DH-geek-alarm is going off. Nico never won a World Cup by 15 seconds. The largest ever winning margin was 14.something seconds by Kovarik at Fort William. Sorry for being such a pedant!
