Race Face's President Purchases Easton Cycling
Easton wheels are pretty good and really good when bought at the huge discounts offered by some etailers. I would much rather have them that the mavic equivilents (I've had the mavics). The bearings in the rear hubs are a load of rubbish but Hope bearings fit and don't break the bank. Also Hope straight pull spokes fit and cost peanuts compared to mavic spokes. I also find it easier to get tires on and off. I've had no end of bother with mavic spokes and free hubs not to mention the cost of them!

It's just great to see someone just muscle a bike down the hill for once. Hit it with a HAMMER! Don't tickle it with a ******* feather.

Pinkbike Poll - Do You Have Any Rituals?
Left socks, shoes and pads on first. Check pads, brakes, goggles, bladder etc before dropping in. Ask Granddad to look after me if I am about to do something especially stupid. Which is everytime, as I fall into the category of 'old enough to know better'.

Other than being fitted and ridden up and down the garden this stem is brand new. I prefer the shape of Easton bars so I'm going back to them Cheers for reading.

Fitted and ridden up and down the garden, so pretty much new then. Prefer the shape of Easton so going back to them. They would be cheaper but bars cost a fortune to post out. They are 780mm wide with a 10mm rise

Video: Summer of Summit with Kovarik in Whistler
Everytime I see an edit of Chris Kovarik, I'm left thinking, I wish that's how I rode.

Pinkbike Poll - Have You Had a Near Death Experience on Your Bike?
Currently sat up in bed unable to move much following a dumb off yesterday. Perhaps when the black cat ran out in front of me earlier in the day (what the hell is black cat doing in the woods on its own!?) I should have just gone home. But the weather was good and I had time to try some new lines. Anyway I went down lick a sack of sh1t after a front wheel wash out, goggles blew off and everything. I thought I had broken my back and snapped my shoulder following the impact, I honestly thought, 'yup, you've done a proper job this time'. As it turns out I'm just battered and bruised and p1ssed off with myself. At least my D3 survived this time unlike in February's face plant incident. Heal up quick people!
