Flashes of the Altai - Video
I'm not sure what this video is selling, but I'm buying. All of it. So nicely shot but even better editing. All your hard work setting up cameras with freezing hands paid off big time. I haven't been in Mongolia for 14 years but I can remember it so vividly. You'll never forget a trip like that. Seriously well done.

The bike I told my wife would be the last... now I just fancy trying a Yeti SB6C so in the unlikely event you own one and want to trade then let's talk! Otherwise this is a straight sale. £2,400. I have the original purchase receipt for the frame and it was built up from there using the highest end components (without being silly!) for an all mountain ripper. It originally came with a CCDB Air but after failing 3 times I demanded Specialized provide a shock that was fit for purpose and the Ohlins TTX22 changed my life! Believe the hype - this is the best rear shock on the market. Full Spec List Specialized Enduro S-Works Medium Frame - good condition with some small paint chips on the frame. Rear triangle (which is alloy) has some chainslap due to the poorly designed protector. Ohlins TTX22m Rear Shock - custom tuned for the enduro - 457lb spring (I weigh 75kg). This would normally set you back £600! RockShox Pike Solo Air 160mm SRAM Rail 50 Wheels - these are awesome and uncommon wheels. Very light and very strong! DT swiss internals. Sram X0 Cranks with RaceFace N/W direct mount ring BBInfinite Bottom Bracket - the ultimate solution for pressfit. I imported from the USA and I've NEVER heard a single creak! Sram X0 Derailleur Sram X0 Shifter Enve DH bars - cut down to 780mm Renthal Apex 50mm Stem Saint Brakes with Ice-tech Floating Discs - great setup for such a capable bike Rock Shox Reverb Stealth SLR Carbonio Flow Saddle - Carbon rails - VERY light (130g from memory) Hans Dampf Super Gravity on Rear Magic Mary Super Gravity on Front All Frame bearings where replaced by Specialized last year and I've ridden less than 30 hours since (that's what a newborn baby does!). The forks were also serviced. Collection from Bristol or I can post in a bike box.

Robot Bike Co R160 Custom - Review
Finally. It feels like bike manufacturing has just caught up with high tech bespoke manufacturing in other industries. The missing part of this business model is the huge R&D that companies like Specialized, Cannondale, etc do (especially on their road bikes). However, I think a back to basics approach of dialled geometry rather than shifting the coefficient of drag by 1% makes total sense. Well done Robot Co.

Nepal, Across a Country - Video
Having walked around many of those trails in the mustang I have to say that I constantly longed for a bike when I could see the singletrack unfolding for multiple miles in front of me! I'd love to go back with a bike.

My former self would kill my current self if he knew I was doing this. But I need to admit to myself that not riding it in over 1 year is just 100% pathetic. I'm sorry my beautiful bike!!! I built this bike to be my perfect bike and it still is. Everything is high spec and total build weight is 14.1kg (31lbs) including the DMR Vault pedals! That's with a very heavy coil shock and steel spring. I was planning on putting on an x2 and getting this beauty to under 30lbs very easily. There are no "lightweight" components. Everything was chosen because it's the best. Full Spec list: 2014 Santa Cruz V10 - Medium (I bought this at 1 year old in Squamish, Canada). All Frame bearings replaced last summer (Jul 15) by BW Cycling in Bristol (have receipt) and ridden 7 days in the alps since. :'( Fox DHX RC4 Kashima - Steel spring 500lbs (I'm 76kg if that's helpful). Rock Shox Boxxer World Cup - perfect condition. Serviced in the Alps last year and not ridden since (Forgive me lord!) Burgtec direct mount stem Enve DH handlebars Mavic Deemax Ultimate Wheels - strong and true (rear was new last summer and hasn't been ridden since) Hans Dampf (Supergravity) rear and Maxxis DHF (ST EXO) front Sram X0 Cranks with direct mount NW chainring (32T) Sram X0 rear derailleur (10 speed) Sram X0 shifter Shimano XTR Trail brakes with ice tech rotors (I'm happy to swap these over to Saints if the buyer wants) with Uberbike race matrix pads DMR Vault pedals - one of them is squeaking a bit but they're servicable. Happy to sell without these pedals if buyer prefers. SDG Saddle with ti-rails Thomson seatpost (the most boring part on the bike) Uberbike bottom bracket - new last summer... Riding this bike brings me so much joy I can't tell you. I've ridden lots of other expensive DH bikes... none come close. Honestly, until you've ridden one of these you just don't know what I'm talking about. It breaks my heart to sell it but this is life... I'll add a load of pictures later in the week as I'm away with work (above spec is from memory but is all good). Photo is from Enduro2 (Jul 2015) where my Specialized Enduro failed and so I switched and raced day 2 and 3 on this bike... top 10 stage times. It's that light. :) Please don't lowball me... I'm too emotionally attached to this bike and so I'll probably react irrationally ha ha ;-) If it doesn't sell I'll be so freaking happy I might take a trip to Madeira and ride it! I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
