Bone dry in May they were (when this shot was taken); wetter than a bulldogs jowls last week though, there were concussions, rocks in the face and plenty of bailing in the 8 inch deep mud in places!!! None of it me though so it was great!!!

Canada!!! Whistler and Silverstar I hope Momo! This summer Niko has been a wash out here! We had a great time in the mud (well I did!! I'm not so sure everyone enjoyed it!) last week though and we still have our mojo running it seems. I hope the Autumn brings more chances to get out: Back to the UK for ten days soon with 11 students in tow for some family time, maybe I can bring back some dry weather with me!!!! Enjoy Enjoy whatever the weather though eh!!

It is at about 1800 metres above sea level in May this year, but the trees are looking nearly the same at about 2000 metres now!

Formula, Deuter, Chumba - Interbike 2014
There are a wide range of choices for a LTHT in steel these days, and many, if not the majority, will set you back less than the Chumba for what would be essentially a very similar ride. Privee, Cotic, On-one, Stanton, that can be had for half the price. Chromag make some great ones too at a higher price point, so I want to know what makes the Chumba worth the extra?

Formula, Deuter, Chumba - Interbike 2014
I was on a Norco Torrent aluminium HT for a while and then tried a Cotic BFe... since then a Stanton. The combination of geo, materials and my riding seemed to make for a great ride. I love em. Why not try one and see.

Ask Pinkbike - Fork Lengths, New Frames and DH Chainring Size
deeeight, yahoo auctions in Japan may be a tiny marketplace yet it is indicative of the second hand market right now, as the ebay.com figures you researched seem to support. Here in Japan, Yahoo Auctions is the first stop for second hand parts and whilst ebay has the market in the US, both sites' figures suggest you are far more likely to be able to come across a very, very good deal for a new or next to new 26er compared to a tweener. It is where I would put my money if I had 1000GBP to spend on a trail bike and what I would suggest to jayangdt, who asked the question.
