Hope: New Rims, Stems and More - Core Bike 2014
Everyone's asking for a good uk made crank. There already is one, they also make some of the hardest wearing chain rings in the world. How has everyone forgotten about MIDDLEBURN! The RS8 has been a X-type crankset for some time and they've been making intergrated single rings that replace the spider long before raceface I e13. My set have been spinning in a hope bb for 2 years with no issues at all, even if I did have a issue they're lifetime warranty... Now just got to wait for them to make a narrow wide uno integrated ring.

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Scared of Change?
Graves rode a 26" sb66... Ropelato (probably spelt wrong) rode a enduro 29er and binned it in first corner, not saying he wouldn't have done well if the pressure hadn't got to him but just to clear up the error. No one was on the podium on 29.

BikePark Wales - Photo Epic
I have been on two uplift days (both weekdays) and find that you have to be fairly on it to get down before the bus does, if you faff about at the top and take a break in the middle or have a mechanical you'll miss a run, but even with sitting out a couple to get a drink/find more waterproofs in the car we still did 9 runs and that was turning up a hour after uplift started running. Overall I'm really impressed with the service, can expect the bus to wait for you if everyone else is loaded on and your nowhere to be seen. The most we waited was our first trip when we punctured and didn't make it to the bus in time before he went back up the hill. But even then we only waited 25mins, and as it was run number 11 at the end of the day I was quite glad to have a breather and a rest for a bit! Thanks to all the friendly and well organised staff at BPW, your doing a great job.

draft
Cannot wait to find out if/when this hits production. I tend to run doubles with e13trs+ and never suffer chain drop, but shifting is always something you have to plan ahead for. i do like the idea of dropping some weight and faff with 1x10 but find that it's too much compromise on both high and low ratios. I hate SRAM shifters so for Shimano to enter wide range cassettes is really good news. I might actually be able to loose that front mech!

Pinkbike Product Picks
They do also come in green with yellow accents, much brighter if that's your thing. I've got 3 pairs of flux88's and I can't reccomend them enough.

The Making of a KS Lev Seatpost
I'm still waiting for the 150mm drop posts to hit the uk, had it on order since early October! Seems like a great product if only it would turn up... Article is good but painfull looking at the product that I still don't have, refuse to buy any other dropper because of the cable route and endless unreliability issues. Any news on when they'll be here Rick-KS?

Key Bike Makers Discuss Shimano's New Direct-Mount Rear Derailleur Option - Video
dont be so narrow minded, not everyone only rides downhill, i love my 30/42 x 11-36t 10speed on my xc bike, and having 11-36 on my big bike means i can actually ride to the woods without having to walk half of it. yes on a dh racebike it might give some performance gains but in the real world for real riders it's just a gimmick so you can look/feel pro.... good like with that.
