Mojo Pro Bike Clinic, Clips VS Flats with Neil Donoghue
Always used to ride a good set of flats with a good set of mtb shoes (started with shimano shoes, moved on to 5.10's). This was on both my Demo and specialized enduro. I then changed to clips on my enduro as I was using it more as a go anywhere bike (XC loops etc) and having the clips was defo an advantage for putting the power down and being precise - made me a (slightly) less sloppy rider. The downside though was that when I would take it DHing, I found that no matter how tight I made them, or messed around with cleat angle, I'd always end up unclipping in corners as I apparently twist my feet while cornering. So I thought 'bollocks to this' and went back to flats. Also, the whole "with flats your foot doesn't always sit in the right place" thing is silly. A good pair of shoes with a stiffish sole and grippy pedals and I regularly do sections of runs with my feet in a not perfect position, and it doesn't really affect me. I trust my feet to grip, and they do. Win.

For sale is my 2010 Specialized Enduro Comp in Size Large! Really want this gone so looking for a quick sale after a few guys have made offers and then bailed, or just made silly offers! As such, I WILL SPLIT the bike to shift the frame, forks (frame and forks = £700) drivetrain and wheels (£100). Perfect working order - cosmetically, paint has scuffs and a cm square chip on the downtube from a stone - par for the course for a 3 year old bike that's been ridden fast but smoothly! Fork and shock stanchions are perfect with no scratches. no dings in rims and wheels true. Spec is different from stock, so here's the list: Size large enduro frame with Fox RP2 shock. offset bushing to slacken of head angle and lower BB - super stable at speed, and basically a playful DH bike Rockshox Lyrik R fork with 20mm maxle. Stanchions sweet, a couple of little paint chips in the lowers. DTswiss E440/shimano rear hub/specialized front hub wheelset - light but surprisingly strong rims - these are stock and still in sweet condition apart from a bit of sticker peel (yep I was shocked they're in good condition as I though DT wheels were made of cheese!). Comes with 1 month old Specialized Butcher Control (lightest butchers and tubeless ready) shimano cranks with a 36t chainring and superstar guide, BRAND NEW BB never ridden - I still have the front derailleur, shifter, and dual ring guide that came stock which will be included with the bike. HT Nano pedals (like superstars, konas, nukeproofs etc) BRAND NEW shimano deore shadow+ rear mech with BRAND NEW KMC chain and BRAND NEW deore shifter and cable. Literally never ridden. Cassette is a Sram PG1090 that is super light and super pimp that is 3 months old but only used for 1 month. Avid Elixir 3 brakes 180/203mm rotors - never had any issues with them Truvativ Hussefelt 40mm stem and Answer protaper 780mm bars. some scuff marks on bars but they have never had an impact from crash etc. Superstar thin grips. Alternatively, I have some pretty much unused Specialized demo bars, 750mm with a little more backsweep than the answers, and some black superstar grips). Superstar full length seatpost with SDG saddle and superstar superlight QR. As said before, I can throw in things that were on the bike but have since been swapped out but I have no use for! things for front shifting (guide, mech, sram OR shimano deore shifter), can throw in other bars or a longer stem for £15 each. Any questions just ask - I'm happy to ship provided buyer pays fees in addition to bike price. based in Bournemouth, so will deliver within reasonable distance. buyer pays transfer fees if using paypal. fine with cash or bank transfer. Thanks for looking, and please don't make silly offers!

FSA K-Force Brake and Megatooth Chain Ring - Crankworx Whistler 2013
Ok, great that we have more options for chain retention - personally have no issues with a simple chain guide like the Gamut but apparently the weight of a guide is too much these days for some people!? but teeth that stick out further than the chain!? rock strikes? I know a big hit on a normal setup would probably damage the chain/chainring anyway, but they look like they might prone to damage!
