Getting to Know Angel Suarez
I like these question and answer articles. Angel seems a really cool guy - nice and honest in his answers and a bit of wit! I've really warmed to him reading this...

Ridden and Rated - Five Trail Knee Guards
I think it just depends on your legs - different pads will fit different people. I'd look for something with straps at the top and bottom as they are likely to be more secure, or perhaps size down on them for an ultra tight fit, but I think most are likely to move a bit in a crash, particularly a big one. Can you try some on in a store locally? I'm currently wearing POC Air 2's and highly rate them, although I've not yet crashed in them so can't really rate that side of them yet... My old POC Bones went through many big crashes and bore some serious action well, but were perhaps a bit overkill for usual riding. For me, the first consideration is comfort, as if the pad is not comfortable I'd not wear it. After that you get the most protection you can!

I've just broken my toe? Can anyone recommend which of these I should have been using? :-)

2017 Scott Spark and Scale - First Look
That shock mount looks like a pocket to collect mud and crap. Is it open at the back or not, and if the twinlock cables exit the frame there, what is in place to stop the ingress of contamination to the fram /system?

2017 Scott Spark and Scale - First Look
I've always liked the look of the Spark bit it hasn't been versatile enough for me - I do the odd black trail, uplift, etc. I would love to have a go on a proper slacked out xc style bike though - I can't imagine much better for most trail centre riding... These look very nice!

e*thirteen TRS+ Cassette - Review
@santoman: Just to clarify I wasn't advocating getting rid of the upper and lower range numbers, as they are the most important fact as you say! It would just mean more to me if they said Eagle was 10-50, which is a 40 tooth difference, whilst the e-13 cassette is 9-44, a 35 tooth difference. It just makes more sense in my head to differentiate the two, rather than 489% and 500% ranges...

Warm Up To Ride Your Best
I think he needs to use a microphone - it's not easy to hear when he's far from the camera...

e*thirteen TRS+ Cassette - Review
I find the percentages pretty confusing and meaningless. I just use the upper and lower tooth count to work out what's what - the smaller the no of teeth the higher the top end, etc. A simple difference in teeth between top and bottom would mean more to me I think...
