YT Capra CF Pro - Review
There's no XL size and there seems to be a concensus that the bikes are too small for larger riders. Mike - at 5'11 you were on a large. What do you think of sizing and (massive over generalisation of body shapes and sizes alert!) do you think the Capra is suited to taller riders than yourself? All answers will be taken as personal opinion and not legally binding! :-)

YT Capra CF Pro - Review
I read this article hoping to find out a little more about BOS too. I've just bought a second hand Deville and, whilst I've not ridden it in anger yet, it seems very plush in a 'car park' test... Saying that, given the comparison was with an old Fox Float evolution(I.e. Non Kashima/latest seals) fork, the latest Fox may be similar for all I know. My friend has a current version of the Pike and the lack of breakaway is similar... There seems to be a large number of positive reviews here in Europe though, citing that it has excellent mid stroke support and big hit capabilities. Just don't go looking for stories about customer support as it'll scare the life out of you! I got mine cheaper than the equivalent Fox though, so took a punt!

City DH Bratislava Finals Cancelled Due to Riot
Football games here in the UK are subject to quite heavy police presence (when there is significant risk) which has made it harder for hooligan thugs to cause problems at the games. As a result they moved on to causing problems at English Defence League rallies as, to begin with, there was less of a police presence and they had a few 'good' days out. These now attract a significant amount of police attention here in the UK, to the extent that most places of protest can get on with daily life in the background. Ignoring the politics (everyone has a right to free speech and protest here, within reason) it tends to be a bit of an excuse for groups of like minded idiots to get drunk and cause trouble. Oh, and for the record, they are all bigoted idiots who are quite wrong... I agree that the parallels between 1930's Germany and the current state of Europe is quite frightening, and hope that the common sense of the many will defeat the scapegoating and scaremongering of a disillusioned few...

Scott Launch 27.5" Plus Bikes
Get a relatively cheap hardtail - preferably in a sale - and see how you get on. Don't upgrade it too much but keep the money aside for an expensive bike later. If, after a year say, you feel you are being held back by the bike test ride some expensive shiny new ones at a trail centre or bike shop, and make a decision then. A guy I used to ride with one dropped crazy money on a true xc bike to find the handling far too twitchy. It destroyed his confidence and he took a hit and got rid of the bike for something more appropriate. If you hang back a little you will understand more about what sort of trails you ride, what style of riding you like to do, and what you do or do not like about the bike you are considering when you come to dropping a lot of money on a 'good' bike. It's easy to be seduced by all the expensive stuff out there but you'll have fun on a cheap bike too!

Pinkbike Poll: What will you be riding in the bike park this year?
Whistler, like any other bike park, is a business. Catering for a larger number of people, whether that be beginners or people with AM bikes, is going to increase the number of people using the park, give them a better return on their investments and promote more spending in the future. I've never been to Whistler (would like to though!) but to build and advertise some more easy runs makes complete sense to me. I do not believe for a second they will be replacing or smoothing out any of the tech stuff, and something tells me that with a bike community that big, there will be a million unofficial trails to get your hit! And sorry if you were just being sarcastic :)
