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

Onyx's Radical Rear Hub - Sea Otter 2015
Shimano SilentClutch anyone? Been around since the early 90s and was a blast, until you had to ride it up a hill or when it broke....usually before getting to that hill.

e*thirteen's Radical Cassette and New Carbon Cranks - Sea Otter 2015
Is it just me or are manufacturers slowly going towards the old cheap and nasty Shimano 'MEGARANGE' cassettes we used to see on BSOs in the 90s http://www.cycle9.com/c9store/images/12Days/fw7spd1434.jpg

Wanted - European Enduro Champion
Didn't know the UCI HAD regulations regarding enduro events? Anyone have an article to get me up to speed ? Do the riders get UCI points? Under what discipline?

March: Good Month or Bad Month?
I reckon bike companies shouldn't feel pressured to release shiny new bikes with mindless/useless improvements to great designs at annual bike shows. I'd rather they took the time and release actual updates when they're ready. I don't see Cove or Turner releasing new bikes every 6 months, yet can any of you say they're no longer up to the task? When was the last time the V10 got an actual geometry update? Why feel guilty for selling a product which works without adding bells, whistles tassles and god knows what several times a year or claiming you've just solved all of mountain biking's limitations without any drawbacks....yawwwwn.

Pan American Championship 2015 - Practice
I don't see a detailed, nicely written, researched and well photographed article from yourself covering these points you're raising? Maybe try being thankful someone took the time to write this up? 5 years ago most people wouldn't even know there was a pan-American championship.
