karaknic

I am a completely talentless mountain biker, but always trying my best. Been scaring myself senseless in the forests for over 20 of my 28 years and recently took up racing in the West Australia downhill and enduro scene.
I enjoy photography and dabble in video editing - you can see some of my race reports and photography at www.nikolay-k.com

Topeak Joeblow Booster - Review
Owner of a 10 year old JoeBlow, still going strong. The one gripe I have with these is if you're pumping up 2.3+ tyres the pressures are normally in the low 20s, depending on where you ride, and it's very difficult to accurately gauge those ranges which this pump is seemingly meant for - the gauge is just too small for that. Who on earth needs 160 PSI on a pump designed for big volume low pressure tyres.

Rachel's Winning Run - Video
The last time Warner raced at the BDS he was around 10% off the fastest time of the day. Rachel was 12% off from Bruni in Cairns. Would be pretty close if those figures are anything to go by.

Are You Going Electric? - Pinkbike Poll
That's a bit like asking what do you prefer 26" or 27.5" a couple of years ago. The answer is it don't effing matter, in a few years, if you want top to mid tier equipment from the big manufacturers you WILL be buying electric, like it or not.

From the Top: Daniel Berger of DT Swiss
At least 2-3 steps before we get there (149.5, 152.7 anyone) , otherwise they'll have nothing to sell us after the first Christmas!

I had one those those at the exact same corner, stung for days! Hurt more and for longer than a collarbone job!

Hope Pro 4: Behind the Hubs - Video
You wouldn't need to ask that question if you've ridden a sub-par hub in UK conditions for any length of time. Hope hubs work, are easy to service, convenient with different standards and make a badass freewheel sound!
