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!

Rob Roslopp? Is that intentional you reckon? What with K and L being next to each other on the keyboard, I'm thinking small oops for biggest sponsor!

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.

First Look at YTs new Carbon DH Prototype
WHEN THE F%&K ARE YOU GOING TO START MAKING PROPER SIZED BIKES! FFS! Money in my bank for a YT Capra, but no... you only make up to a Large size, which in some other manufacturer sizing comes closer to a medium at best! No wonder YT sponser Lacondeguy, he's like 5 foot flat right? Damn Germans.

Video: Steps to the Top - Finn Iles
Kid has skills for sure, but growing up in Whistler is always going to make that possible anyway. Oh and being spoilt rotten always helps! Yeah, when I was his age, I rode just as much as him, but I managed to get a £300 Diamond Back Sorrento from my parents to ride.. and kit? A £40 Bell Image lid. This kid has like $10k worth of gear FFS! Don't anyone dare say he ain't spoilt. I couldn't even afford the kit today! And yeah, his whips were amazing, and he got them right back for landing too, but to take the win? Andreau's whips were just as big maybe bigger for sure.. Sounds like some sympathy vote for the young kid to win. And yeah, I know, Neg prop me. Truth is the truth, and it often hurts!

2015 Specialized Demo - Design and Development
Most people are not 5.9"! The average some 20 years ago was 5'10" and that has been going up slowly. Look at the Santa Cruz Syndicate team and tell me only people 6'4 play basketball! The whole teams riders are around 6'4", and unsurpisngly the V10 does come in an XL size. 6'4" is way too short for basketballers anyway. I hate this current trend for pushing large sizers to 29rs. I don't like the ride on the 29r, I want a 27.5. I can get a Speciailzed to fit me but the pricing is unrealistic for carbon models. I am really trying ti persuade myself I can fit on a Capra (accroding to their stupid sizing chart it shoud fit). Also considered a Canyon, again, only upto large. a Radon Slide 160 Carbon LE is looking best bet which comes in a 22" (but in CM's is actually around a 21"!). I understand being really tall is out the question but I consider 6'4" to be borderline normal sizing. There are people riding 25" frames over 6'6", they have to use 29rs, they simply don't look right with small wheels.

2015 Specialized Demo - Design and Development
At 6'4" I am struggling to get myself comfotably on anything I have seen yet. Evrything is so small, and I don't want a 400mm seatpost to compensate for stupid tiny seat tubes. I don't get the current fad for small only sized bikes. My 2010 Enduro XL has totally different sizing from the 2014 XL. The headtube on my bike is 3cm longer! Why is it assumed that taller people want to have to resach down to the bars. Was goiung to buy a YT Capra, stupid tiny sizing is a no go, YT Tues the same issue..
