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

Ask Pinkbike: More Travel, Locking Out, and Switching to Clipless
Go for it jfkusa, did the same years ago and don't regret it. FWIW I ride 5.10 impacts or dirtbags with saint or nukeproof pedals. Best advice I can give is drop your heels down when it gets gnarly or steep. I reckon the main benefit is my balance on the bike is better these days, especially when jumping. I still suck, just less than when clipped in.

Nope, and there were heaps of them if you watch it again, but fortunately Red Bull blurred them out for us.

10 for 10 - #3 Troy Brosnan
It's pretty amazing that some states of Australia without any "proper" mountains, like South and Western Australia, can produce such amazing downhill riders like Sam Hill, Troy Brosnan and Connor Fearon. I don't know Troy, but have had the chance to chat with a few people who do, and who rode with him when he was younger. They've all said he's a great guy and an excellent ambassador for mountain biking. It certainly makes getting up early in the morning to watch the live stream a lot easier when you've got locals like Troy and Connor to cheer on :)

Video: Duck'n'Weave the Adelaide Dust
ha, yeah you have to earn your turn, but it's worth it! Wouldn't fancy pushing up on a dh rig, but it doesn't need one anyway. Looking forward to when Dirty Little Secrets is open, but was nice to see no-one (that we saw) riding it while closed.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Do Trail Work?
Check these bad boys out: http://goo.gl/IsSlZ1 If you want time to dig, don't buy or build a house, or breed. I've no regrets, but did both and only make it out once a month if lucky.

Nice riding! Was lush out there yesterday, little bit of rain kept the dust down. The new Ant Logic trail at fox is also a rip-snorter, all smiles on everyone at the end of each run :D

Yup, it is, and we have also a political leader in denial of climate change, much like you guys I hear? Either way a lot of the ski resorts are now spending money on MTB trails as the writing is on the wall; at least one small benefit I guess...

Bell Super 2R Helmet - Review
Yup, that's a big noggin! ;-) I'm just saying anyone who normally buys a large sized helmet (like me) and is thinking of buying a Bell Super, to try one on for size first.
