YT Capra CF Pro - Review
I have been saying this for over a year. The sizing is way off. People were saying it has a long top tube for it's sizing but from comparisons of other bikes its not true. The XL is barely bigger than the L and is still not big enough for a taller rider. I had this out with Cam Zink, who insisted that there was no XL coming (even though I heard there was) and he informed me that Kelly McGarry (who is my height) is happily riding a L. But what a coincidence that after McGarry joined YT they released the XL... I was ready to order an Capra last year, but in the end I measured the geometry against some other bikes and it came up similar to most L sized bikes around whoch are WAY too small for me. I'd have to have a stupid length seat post and have a horrible drop to the bars.. Oh well, if they want to be sizest, I'll take my money elsewhere.. By the way, YT clearly are afraid to re-adjust their sizing chart saying that L is still up to 6'4 and XL is for anyone under 6'4. The fact that all reviewers averaged height size up says it all. Easy to size up if your under 6 foot, but people over 6 foot have nothing to size up to!

Beyond the Bike: Cam McCaul
Love this guy. Such a laid back character and always entertaining to watch on and off the bike. Wondered what was happening when he didn't do last years Rampage, and then noticed he wasn't showing up at comps, I assumed he just retired, but good to see the clarification on here. Unfortunately I stopped using twitter last year but before I did I noticed he'd also stopped tweeting very often too.

Interview: Chris Chance - Fat Chance Bicycles
OH my god, I WANT one of these so bad! I was barely a teenager the first time the Yo Eddy came round and it was a dream bike along with the likes of a Klein.. I haven't ridden a hardtail in years and years, but these excite me! Even after all these years it's probably going to be a dream because they were always expensive. I feel all nostalgic now! Time to head over to Retrobike!

I'm always concerned that anyone may die or get seriously hurt.. It's intense to watch, but you have to be crazy to not be nervous for these guys.

Press Release: Introducing the Canfield Brothers' Balance
I never understand when companys say "10 years in develpment". I mean, no wonder it was that long, if you think about how many changes to tech have happened in that time. Geometry alone has changed loads over the last 5 years, a 160mm bike now days is super slack, and the 27.5 wheels? They have only really been established for a year or two. So, no shit it took ten years, because you dragged your ass so long, you must have basically started from scracth every 2 to 3 years due to trend changes!

Just Announced! New Red Bull Rampage Course Unveiled Plus Athlete Invite List
Yeah, his line last year was sick and he had the most underrated line on the hill, his gap drop, just insane! Pity he's not going to be competing.
