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

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!

Fall Lines with Richie Rude - Video
For what it's worth mate I really enjoyed that and watched all the way through, something I can't say for most videos on here. I like the unfluffed filming/effects and backing off on the music volume. It's also really nice to see the elite of our sport filmed in such relaxed casual setting, just every day riding. If everyone made films like Anthill from their first edit we'd be living in a very different world. Just keep at it :)

Win Superstar Components Nano-X Pedals - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
I think they do ship to the states (certainly ship to Australia) but the prices for international shipping recently became extortionate since they changed courriers, so I can no longer afford to buy from Superstar. All their stuff is awesome though, kudos to the company!

Wolf Tooth Rotor Tool - Review
The park tool has two slots which let you straighten smaller or larger sections of the disc. Plus it feels really nice to use and gets the job done much faster (important for workshops and whatnot).

Is This Adjustable Stem Ingenious or Unnecessary?
Genius ! Set to 27.5 while talking to your buddies at the trailhead, so you're 'relevant', 26 once you get going in the fun stuff and switch to 29, while no one is looking, for the climbs!

Novyparts RockShox Reverb Remote - Review
It's all good, I just broke my remote and am looking for a replacement and this looks like the ticket, but what about those 50% of us who ride with non Avid brakes and shifters ?

Pinkbike Poll: Who Will Win DH World Champs?
Two world cup wins and a crash on a (probably) winning world champs run last year is not standing a chance anymore...wow.
