well fair enough, however thats the equvialant of saying bikes don't fail nowadays, i know plenty of people including myself that have gone through intenses, coves, spooky's, transitions, specializeds, gt, and so forth am sure those companies have all done their strength analysis homework too. Bikes fail, it happens.... to cheap and expensive alike. the only bike i would trust with this angle headtube is a "Curtis". however i have to admit my argument of him being not a fast rider means he can't design fast bikes is a pretty shit one. as that would create a situation whereby you need to be performing at top 20 level in a given discipline in order to actually know how to make a fast bike, which obviously is a crock of shit. i'll finish this off buy saying its a goddamm ugly bike., there said it done!

scottish champions enduro bike (hardtail)

$1000 GBP
selling my pride and joy from 2014. this bike won me the scottish enduro champs in the hardtail category. this bike is the bomb!!!!!!! its been resprayed in gulf blue in feb 2015 and is a brand new dialled bikes alpine mk2 frame from sept 2014. 26" wheels reynolds 853 tubing (main triangle) x44 headtube fox36 talas 120-150mm kashima coated (just had full service at flotec) 2010 model answer carbon taper 720mm bars thomson 90 mm stem thomson layback post hope tech evo brake levers mounted to old school mono m4 + mono mini (this was for aesthetic reasons) Hope ceramic BB (just been serviced) hope headset hope pro2 hubs (new bearing through out + steel freehub body) hope qr seat post clamp mavic EX 823 tubless rims shimano SLX cranks (175mm) xt rear mech (new in august 2014) xtr shifter 9spd cassette superstar chain device superstar nano pedals superstar discs sdg belair saddle continental rubber queen protection tyres new 9 spd chain spares - 1 x spare 9spd xt mech (1 year of use still good) 1 x geax AKA tyre, 1x continental rubber queen 1 x continental X-king 7x spare tubes 1 x brand new never used superstar narrowide ring 34t 1 x tech evo4 caliper (never used) 1 x tech evo X2 caliper 2 x m4 pads 1 x mono mini pads 1 x X2 pads 1 spare mavic ex823 rim, never been used but damage to internal wall might not be suitable for tubeless (i bought this as an ex-display model) spare nipple inserts for ex 823 rim this bike really is the business if you want a hardcore all day trail weapon. it was good enough to power me to scottish champion, beating 90% of the full suspension field. negatives - its 26" wheel size there is minor wear on the right stanchion of the fork due to my lack of servicing last year. forks have just had full rebuild and service, bushings, seals, oil, + new internals. it is essentially a new fork. the front wheel has one spoke missing, i have sealed this off, unfortunately its not repairable due to the internal thread of that nipple insert being stripped. however it happened 3 years ago and it still never gone out of true since. history:- this frame was new in sept 2014, ridden hard till november 2014, then never been touched till february when i got it resprayed and had 3 final rides on it. have been mega busy all year and so never got round to sorting it out for selling. but now my wife has gone back to uni and i ride a full suspension bike, its time i let go!! the reason for the odd brake mix is that i like the black and gold colour scheme of my mono brakes and so swapped the calipers the correct calipers in silver are part of this deal. its worth way more than this but the price is £1000 - the bike means too much to me to barter on its price so that is fixed price. if you like we arrange a place to meet you inspect to your satisfaction and swap moneys/bike. meet in scotland only any questions on sizing etc more photos just let me know

whilst i'm sure CP knows his shit for suspension setup, its quite obvious he doesn't know his shit for bike setup. he gets at best mediocre results at the enduro races, often beaten by folk on hardtails etc. if there was any validity in his ideals, he would pay a top drawer rider to race on this frankenbike, and other bigger teams would follow suit in the angles. but he's not. and the vast R+D of other bike brands are not. his personal claims of this bike being the fastest are spurious at best. who are these three other riders, name and shame them!!! do they ride bmx normally or 29ers or that historical 26" wheeled machine normally, how long they been riding for and etc etc - i'll hold my hands up i know jackshit about suspension setup and the finer point of geometries, but for once in my cynical life, i'm going to side with the larger brands making normal good looking conforming bikes on this one

UK Loses Gravity Enduro Series for 2016
hmm, well, first and foremost Steve's done the right thing by his family. That always comes first no matter what!!!!!. to end up homeless and carry on with his vision is a strength of character that very few of us could ever hope to attain. well done steve respect.!!! for sure there was a hell of a lot of consternation surrounding the format /insurances/ cost/ venues etc of the UKGE but having never organised a race i'm not gonna comment on that as i have no right to. The BCF and UCI on that matter need to get their heads out their arses though!! (from a scottish perspective) with DH race attendees falling and almost getting cancelled due to lack of numbers, and xc races only having a handful of competitors compared to sold out scottish enduro races of up to 500 riders the BCF need to acknowledge this is the future of biking for the next decade or so. they need to support and guide it. Britain as whole provides so many top class athletes in DH and Enduro its bordering on the ridiculous. Coupled with the industry hellbent on making its money from "allmountain" and "enduro" its utterly inconceivable that the BCF won't support that format of racing. hopefully they will see the light before next year and something may arise. I urge people to come forward and support events as much as possible. what people fail to realise, is that BCF supported or not, the organisers of events like the UKGE, SXC, SES, SDA etc are run by folk volunteering and sacrificing their time. correct me if i'm wrong please but the BCF sanctioned events are not run by a bunch of BCF salaried employees, just a few dedicated rider's parents who want something more than grass roots races for their kids. they get next to zero thanks for it. but all hell breaks loose when it doesn't go to plan. if they make profit from it great but if not then it all goes down the pan. and for those not interested in racing thats totally fine, you make up the vast majority of the riding population, but please bear in mind that the 28lb 150mm travel carbon superbike you own would not be possible without racing pushing the boundaries. peace out and again RESPECT steve, wish you all the best for your family and future

Rider POVs: Val di Sole DH World Cup 2015
WOAH, just watched two POVs at same time to see what different lines were being taken, got the 'set offs' within a split second of each other. Loic so smooth compared to Harts, Minaar way faster than Josh's fun run, Loic vs Minaar.........10 sec difference with some fantastic lines and gaps compared to minaars. Loic is on fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
