Why I Didn't Drop In - Sam Reynolds on Red Bull Rampage
@scott-townes: hang on, I'm not calling for anything to be banned. Just calling out the dodgy stat that XCMark provided. There were many more Enduro race entries in 2016 (probably 10s of 1000s) than there have ever been at Rampage, which has probably only had a couple of hundred entries since it began.

Why I Didn't Drop In - Sam Reynolds on Red Bull Rampage
@XCMark: a lot more people participate in Enduro races. Even I've done one, and there's not much chance of me getting invited to Rampage!

You Don't Need to Learn on a Hardtail - Opinion
Well said profro. I have 2 mtbs. One is a modern full suss trail bike with a dropper post, tubeless tyres and all the other modern stuff. The other is a an old steel 26" hardtail, the forks broke so I just fitted a pair of rigid surly forks, and many of the components now have over 10 years service. There's a lot to be said for the "winter bike" if I calculated maintenance costs per mile, or workshop hours per mile, it would be a joke how the two compare. How can we expect newcomers to the sport to drop £2-4k on a bike where they'll have to re-inflate the seatpost (yes, the seatpost!) after 3 weeks, fit new tyres using an air compressor, and knock out the useless press fit bottom bracket with a screwdriver when it fails after 1 wet ride? That's before they've had to work out why it's creaking!

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

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.
