Components of Adventure: Scotland with Vanderham and Hunter
The Applecross and Torridon area, which features heavily in this video is fairly straightforward to explore as long as you're well prepared and don't take too many risks with the weather. It's well covered in guide books, so no need for a guide, unless you want one. Go if you get chance, it's bloody marvelous

Huge respect to everyone that made it down that track today (or even had a go).

Bergamont EnCore 9.0 - Review
Interesting comments about the XT chainring getting clogged with mud. Considering a switch to 1x11, and based on previous experience I'm definitely a Shimano person rather than an SRAM Agree with others, this is a very good review

Danny MacAskill: Aviemore Spring - Video
Great video, but perhaps not the best promo for a cleaning product. There's no dirt in it!

Greg’s Epic, A Tallboy Tale - Video
Scenery and soundtrack made a nice change from the usual. Of course the riding was good too

Pit News - Lourdes DH World Cup 2016
Obviously the best way to keep some documents secret is to print them out and write SECRET in big letters on the cover.

Pinkbike Poll: Are Rear Derailleurs Reliable?
Last broke a derailleur ~5 years ago, so reliability not a huge concern, and as others say you can still bodge a single speed as long as you've got a chain splitter with you. One advantage of the derailleur system is that a fairly basic mechanic with just a few tools (me) can replace all the gears when they wear out. Presumably with a gearbox the gears wear out less often and only two of them would need replacing when you swapped a chain. But that's offset by the complexity of maintaining the gearbox itself Dunno, I'm not convinced. Yet.

Cavalerie Anakin - Review
I'd be unlikely to go for something this exotic (and expensive) but that was quite an interesting review. I do find that I spend a lot more time tinkering with my bike than I did ten years ago. Sticky dropper posts, pressfit BBs, and tubeless tyre troubleshooting all add to the maintenance overhead of running a bike ( though at least 2 of those things save you time once you're out riding) Would a gearbox bike save me much "workshop time"? I'm not sure it would, but that would be my main motivation for looking into the idea further

I've never pressed the down vote button with such precision. What a complete arse.

In Memoriam: Kelly McGarry
RIP, and sincere condolences to all Kelly's family and friends. I'm not a free rider and don't follow that aspect of the sport too closely, but he was one of the riders who managed to make a real impact on me. A big star and a big loss to all of MTB :(
