Pinkbike Product Picks
I ride my 26" 2.2 on the front with a 2.25 Ardent on the back, both tubeless on narrow Xtr rims, loads of grip - best front tyre I've used. I ride a mixture of loam/mud, sand/pebble beds; roots and rock - the only place it feels vague is on dry hard pack, brilliant tyre, lasts ages

2007 Intense Uzzi VPX, Push tuned DHX5, 550 & 600Lb springs, new bottom link, bearings replaced last year, G3 135mm dropouts & 135mm slackers. 1.5" integrated head tube, 73mm BB. One offset bush, one straight. Powdercoated at Bournes, Birmingham, has a couple of marks but nothing serious. Not done anything major, a dozen times at FOD/Stiniog/Pierce uplift days/Cwmcarn etc. Decent weight and makes a pedalable, super strong mini DH bike. 7.75" (190mm) rear travel. Uzzi VPX is a bigger bike than all '09 onwards models. Underrated and indestructible, can be adjusted between slack DH to tight AM, tuned DHX5 helps it fire out of big landings in a measured way. I'm 5'11 and 15st, I find the cockpit a bit tight as there's quite a bit of me to move around these days! I think it would suit up to 5'10" and more if you're light. Want to swap for a size large Uzzi VPX or similar but nothing pre '07, inbox me if you have anything

Pinkbike Poll: Will Mountain Biking Ever Be a Mainstream Sport?
Events like Rampage scare the sh*t out of most people - activities like that are fringe and epitomise the definition of awesome: in that rather than invoking a sense of wonder, it carries with it the fear of death - most of those guys are glad to get to the bottom in one piece! Why they don't often interview free-climbers on TV? The language they use is tinged with the sublime, it's very difficult to communicate just how thrilling it can be, and very personal. Ultimately MTB its not a team sport, and when its just you and the dirt its gotta be one of the purest forms of fun going. Long live the scene - who cares about mainstream!

Pinkbike Poll - Is It a Lifestyle or a Hobby?
I rode bmx in the early eighties, went to motorbikes/sex/drugs/rockandroll until my mid-thirties, i'm now 45 and if I book on the uplift I can't think about anything else, one day we'll see gravity granddads who can't give it up until it kills them! - I may be one of them..

SHIMANO LX rear mech, assume it works, I bought it for my VPX build as I read they were one of the only mechs to fit that frame. Never used as VPX is single ring only. There's a bolt missing but one can be found in your LBS for next to nothing. Inbox me if you're interested.
