Transition Bikes Announce Scout Carbon
@NoahColorado: I get the feeling not enough people get the reference, otherwise you'd have far more positive props for it lol.

Favorite Tools of the Mechanics - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
@Axxe: yeah totally, my bike is just a frame I run round the trails with... The fact is yes, pro bike mechanics use them and recommend them. Chances are, that's because it's a 'get you out the shit' tool, good when the actual Allen keys and bike specific tools just won't do it, but every single mechanic I've met will laugh at anyone taking an adjustable tool to anything. Stop being an arse, atm there's more people saying a proper tool is a better option, so you're in the minority, and that makes you the moron right now.

@Axxe: half of that simply doesn't work in practice. Cable ends? Nope, I use wire cutters because you get two uses per end that way. Axle nuts? Who the hell has them any more. Top cap I'll conceed, I use a parallel face wide jaw adjustable spanner. Nuts on brake lines a 7mm spanner is far easier. And spoke nipples? Really? That would be the biggest ball ache ever, using.such a long tool for quarter turns, a spoke key would be much easier. Yeah they're a nice tool, and for some things they'll be better, but I'm pretty sure most mechanics prefer a socket or ring spanner so they're less likely to round it off.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Your Mountain Biking Vice?
@HankBizzle: erm, you know the area the rain Is being measured in makes no difference? Mm of rain Is how many mm of rain have collected in a parallel sided container. Check actual rain and Sun days a year for an easier comparison.
