Old fart still riding trails,
still learning,
still crashing,
still loving it!

Photo Recap: Pietermaritzburg XC World Cup
@FunRunner, yeah that was a great result for him, I'm on his fb page and he was stoked about it. MojoMaujer just seems butthurt that some of us don't follow his ethos for what mtb should be. @Darkstar, sure, and the price you inevitably pay for not wearing any protection other than a flimsy helmet is obviously worth it to xc racers. But as I said, it's not my idea of having fun on a bike, but I've got friends who love it. I commute each day and am lucky enough to ride a few trails to work, so I enjoy my 100mm hardtail as it's a great compromise between trails and tarmac, and I agree it keeps you honest, but I have more fun on my 150mm dual suspension bike. To each their own!

@MojoMaujer - Jared Graves is an excellent downhiller and enduro racer, and he would probably do fine in a XC race. @DARKSTAR63 - doesn't it seem like a silly idea to ride technical trail with a bike not suited for it? Each to their own, just not my idea of having fun on a bike.

Nino Schurter's World Championship Winning, 17.8-Pound Scott Scale - Sea Otter 2014
(: Also the reason why I'm now commuting 35km (21miles) to work every day. I have to cross 2 valleys at the start of my journey, and I won't lie, I was eyeing off the electric bike shown on pb front page and thinking it would be nice to get up the hills, but then I look at my gut and say the climbs are worth it, plus I get to bomb down the last hill for a few km of sweet trails before hitting the streets :)

No worries Daniel, it's all good. ...and back on topic; hoping Sam Hill, Troy Brosnan and Connor Fearon kick butt this year, go Aussies!

@danielstutt If you're going to give an English lesson, it's "an oxymoron", American and English should be capitalised and it's "there's" not "theres" since it's a contraction of "there is". Schooled by an Aussie, how embarrassing :-p

Park Tool EK-1 Tool Kit - Review
For that money I'd have thought a torque wrench and something better than a tape measure (digital caliper vernier) would be included, but I love the case and am guilty of having tools spread all over the workshop :)

Video: After Hours
Guys like Joe who run these places must do it for love, because it would take a heap of time and effort, plus cost a lot to set up and run - large warehouse, expensive machinery, hundreds of tonnes of screed dirt, hundreds of fluro lights to power, insurance, etc.), and looking at their web page, they aren't charging that much either. Respect!
