Video: Rage Against the Night
I think it's been rebranded as now...? Are they as good as expensive lights? No. Are they 1/10th of the price? Yes! Are they superb for the minimal outlay and highly recommended for people wanting to try night riding? Yes! EBay has loads too, and shipping tends to be shorter as lights are in the same country, although you will pay a small premium over those direct from China... I wouldn't be too seduced by the power output thought, as it'll drain your battery quicker, and always have 2 (helmet and bars) in case one fails or runs out of battery, etc. They tend to have a very pronounced spot in my experience, and the batteries drain much quicker. That is where the money goes on better lights, and it depends on the individual as to whether it's better for them and affordable enough to be a worthwhile investment...

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
I think it's fine to have tough transfer stages provided it is balanced. Whistler was one race of 7, and if we are only talking about the toughness of the transfers in one race then surely the others weren't as bad and that leveled the playing field a bit? To me the great thing about Enduro is that it brings together athletes from all different Mtb disciplines - some rounds will be more xc based, some more DH based. As long as the series continues to appeal to all styles of rider I don't think there is an issue...

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Schedule Update
That was awesome Dusse123 - the reviews for Veet hair removal cream on Amazon are also pretty funny if you haven't seen them...

Enduro World Series Reveals Its Full 2015 Calendar
I think they're probably trying to limit the number of far flung locations too - if you were a privateer based in Europe or the Us, arguably the biggest sources of riders, it costs a lot in time and money to do two trips to the southern hemisphere in a series. It would price a lot of people out I think...

Justin Leov's Diary - EWS Winter Park
Props for doing re-run of that stage - a tough decision I'm sure and one that, whilst was perhaps fairer to others was at a detriment to you. Perhaps the fairest way in future would be that everyone has to do 2 runs?You can take the best time from the two, although I suppose that those having already completed a full run well could then just cruise and conserve energy, thereby gaining an advantage anyway... Has anything been decided in the post race analysis as to how to manage this kind of issue in future?

Ask Pinkbike - Out of Control Rear Derailleur, Flat-Pedal Rider Switching to Clips, and a 24-Inch Wheel Question
It's not better, just different. It did feel far more efficient to me being clipped in, but I was a little less confident playing at the absolute limits of traction being unable to put a foot down as quickly. You can unclip in a surprisingly short time, and you will have next to no times where you fall as a result of not being unable to unclip (well, once you are used to them) but sometimes that half a second is not appreciated in an emergency! I tend to ride flats 99% of the time, but would go straight to clips if I was doing a ride for the sake of distance rather than fun...
