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

Ask Pinkbike: Upgrade an Entry-Level Bike, Zee for XC, Bracing for Autumn's Chill
Only thing I don't rate in the SLX range are the shifters, especially since the lower covers fall off! Everything else is close enough to XT it doesn't matter. I've got SLX, XT and Zee cranks on my different bikes and can't detect any difference in stiffness. That being said, I've broken the clutch cam on my SLX rear mech, not hard or pricey to fix, but will probably give Zee a crack to see if it's better, although it may just have the same internals anyway...

How was the look on Bulldog's face when Neko took the hotseat? Priceless :)

Just Announced! New Red Bull Rampage Course Unveiled Plus Athlete Invite List
Chill out j-t-g. He recently said* he's having problems getting his mental game sorted at big events, and you'd have to be pretty stupid to hit up rampage if you're not 100% committed. * http://goo.gl/h5VJiq

Spotted: Prototype Yeti Downhill Bike
貌似取消了坑爹的滑轨设计 translates as "seemingly cancelled slide design pit father" 沙发 as "sofa" So either these guys have been getting stuck into the rice wine, or google translate needs work...

I thought the interview was classic, a more laid back man you will not find, even had the coolness to avoid swearing on the live feed, he was shitting himself waiting the remaining riders :) And how tough is Gee Atherton!

First Look: Giant Reign and Glory 27.5
Agreed, it was the main thing I had against the 2013 Reign at the time (Fox CTD damper issue wasn't well known until later), didn't stop me from buying one though, still no regrets, love my ride, and when the time comes I can get a new headset and stem, then turn my OD2 fork into a bar stool ;-) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/460211655641965028/ They've gone back to press-fit bb again, which makes sense on carbon frames but prefer threaded on AL, and getting a little fussy, I'd go the 150mm reverb over 125mm. Downtube guard and 12x142 both welcome additions, but haven't noticed that much flex or tyre rub against the seat stay. Reign paint job also looks the business!

Video: Connor Fearon is a Wild Man on a Bike
Went on my first night ride a few nights ago, so much fun! Two $30 solarstorm x2 (bar + helmet mounted) was more than enough light and batteries lasted two hours. Watched Fearon beat Brosnan at the state champs earlier this year, so fast and smooth, great talent! Adelaide sure seems to breed excellent riders like these guys and bmx rider Sam Willoughby...wish some of it would rub off on me ;-)
