FOX's New 36 RC2 - Sea Otter 2014
Can anyone shed any light on why you wouldn't use a 27.5" fork with a 26" wheel? Obviously the clearance would be greater with a higher arch. Would there be any negatives? I'm sure there must be a reason or surely companies would be sharing lowers across their models, but can't think of what is bound to be a completely obvious answer :-)

First Look: 2015 Shimano XTR – Eleven Speed Cassette - Choose Your Drivetrain
Why's nobody mentioned the non-standard bcd?!? Everyone usually goes nuts when a new standard is introduced... Anyway, that in itself kind of ruins it for me...

Don't you want the skills to go with the balls? Kind of dangerous otherwise :-)

Opinion: No Bad Rides
I can only think of 1 bad ride - I had a massive load of stress at home at the time so was REALLY excited to get out. When I got there I rode terribly. In hindsight I think my mind was on all the stressful stuff at home, but I could not find any flow or form which caused me to get really frustrated... I probably didn't ride that badly, and it was probably a fault of my mental frame of mind and the expectations I had to escape them and enjoy myself despite what was going on in the background, but I was left in a foul mood by the experience. Of course I've learned from the experience (and I would do the same again in a heartbeatb) only this time place lower expectations on myself... And as far as motivating myself to get out some of my favourite rides have been in the most foul and miserable weather I can think of, so that's never been a problem. There's something special about sliding your bike around in the woods, on your own when nobody else is around...

To The Point: Understanding Bottom Brackets
Yeah - it's only messing with brakes! Nothing could go wrong with that, eh? :-) Joking aside I love the fact that 90% of bike maintainance can be done at home with a few tools and the willing. Best of luck (I hope you have a bleed kit!)...

Photo Epic: Marzocchi Pre-Season Testing
I really like the look of the new Marzocchi stuff , but it does worry me at the lack of independent reviews through the media. That, and like all forks as far as I am aware, you can't test them first. I'd be quite happy putting a deposit down to cover the cost of the fork if lost (etc.) AND pay a nominal fee to be able to test it for a couple of hours/days first. I'm not sure why this isn't more readily available, particularly as you could buy a low-mid range hardtail for the same amount as a set of half decent forks!
