Specialized Demo 8 I Alloy - Review
@powergavin: average wage in the U.K. is £26,500, which comes to about £2200 per month before tax... so as a tiler you're above average. I'm a teacher, just abover average, and with other things I need to pay for, it'd take over a year to save up for one of these! In any case, got a 2013 demo, but would certainly like someone to buy it so I can get a canyon!

9 Questions with McGarry - Red Bull Rampage 2015
When you see the headcam of Brendog's run though, with the double canyon he built - gap isn't as large as the proper gap, or as big as some of the other drops, but the technical aspect of it and the rest of his line was sweet! Defo not a boring, fast run down the mountain!

Pedaling Innovations Introduces the Catalyst Pedal
I have Eu46 feet, use 5.10 freeriders on specialized beanies with a mid-foot placement, because that way the arch of my foot naturally curves around pedal to give loads of grip on my DH bike and on my trail bike. Can still pop around all over the place, but wouldn't say it makes me a strong pedaller. When I used to ride on the balls of my feet they'd slip all the time. What I'm getting at is that for me, mid-foot gives better grip (without stupidly oversized pedals) but I can still confidently have fun!
