Santa Cruz Nomad - Review
So... all my previous wheelsets have been shit because of Dtswiss Comp spokes and i should have bought them with more expensive and lighter (=flexier) spokes. Never thought of it that way before...

Schwalbe Announces Dual Chamber Tire System Details
I hope people would finally stop the bs about tire size and rim diameter affecting the size of the contact patch. Only two things define size of the contact patch: tire pressure and rider+bike weight. Everything else only alters the shape. Very basic physics. Sorry for the rant.

I dont really mind the puns if they kill the bitching about wheelsize and everything looking like a Session.

Schwalbe Announces Dual Chamber Tire System Details
Hmm... I wonder if I could do the same ghetto style with a tubular road tire.. It'll weight around 250-300g per tire and cost a whole lot less if you buy a pair of shitty tubulars..

World Cup DH Bike Check: Brendan Fairclough's Scott Gambler
Correct me if i'm wrong (like i have to ask for that), but isn't that just a REALLY complicated singlepivot?

Niner WFO-9: Review
"Niner chose to construct the WFO-9 chassis from aluminum, bucking the recent industry trend to debut new flagship models in carbon." That's what they'll keep telling you.. Until the carbon version comes along anyway. I was really looking forward to this as my old wfo is starting to feel... well a bit old with the stupidly steep headangle(70deg) and the low-ish lower link that tries to catch every rock on the trail. But they really ruined the bike imho: shorter TT as just about everyone else is going for longer (it's about 2cm shorter than the enduro29), lower link seems to be even lower so more mangled metal and the less room for the rear tire (that's the best part with the old frame: you can run what ever tires you want and there's still plenty room for shit in the stays). I'm sure it's a great bike if it suits your frame, but i'll be lookin' for something longer and lower thank you.

WAKi-leaks Installment 5 - 2x2 Zoopa-drive
@RedOnion & StueyStuey: Yes, all germans are Nazies because of a few maniacs 70 years ago... oh wait wasn't AH actually born in Austria?! Has all this shit about german racists been Austrian fasist propaganda all along?!!! Seriously i'm with bOObdesign on this one. If you cant ride a bike in the mountains without electronic assist you shouldn't be doing it. I'm not talking about bikeparks with a rider coming down the trail every 15 seconds, that should be pretty safe. But riding in real mountains where bailing a disabled after a broken chain or blown tire requires a lift with a helicopter reeeally isn't a good idea.

Schwalbe Rock Razor Tire - Review
If you dont like buildings popping up everywhere, try living in Lappland: Here skyscrapers have three floors and the most recent ones were built in the 80's.

Pic is a bit blurry, but that looks a lot like a n/w saint ring.
