I think it's a bit of a joke that first prize for the elite's was £250. I know they don't do it for the money per se, but £250 would get you a cassette these days. It was even worse for the other categories. Some of those massive cheques were for £40!!! Whilst sponsorship for all of these guys and girls is fantastic and free bikes help, it doesn't sit right that there isn't some more money available. Even smaller British bike companies like Orange have £1.5m in profit sat within their companies and over £0.5m sat in cash in the bank. I'm not picking on Orange - all the numbers are available from companies house for any British company.

Brand new 32t narrow wide chainring - as seen here: https://www.uberbikecomponents.com/view-product/Uberbike-Narrow-Wide-Single-Chainring-30323436t-options-Black I opened the packaging only to realise it won't fit my (stupid) sram cranks. I've since bought a direct mount chainring. This is literally brand new! Retails at £24.99 on the website. I'll do it for £20 including postage!

The Science of Going Downhill Faster
So it turns out that a lifetime of rock climbing may have actually been the perfect preparation for time on the dh bike. It's the perfect blend of body awareness and core strength (with a boot load of hand strength included for good measure). Having done some coaching for climbers I am always reminded just how useful those same skills are when I'm on my bike. My advice: climbing once a week will do wonders for your on bike performance.

I was offered a very good deal on a new deemax ultimate so I took the plunge in order to get the mavic mp3 warranty. My old wheel (exactly the same spec) is now for sale. This is a 150mm Deemax Ultimate, which currently has a brand new XD freehub body on it but I can also change it to a standard shimano freehub (which is used). The wheel is running true with a couple of minor dings which are visible if you look very close. I wouldn't have changed the wheel if I hadn't been able to get such a good deal on a new wheel. I probably would have put it in to be trued for this season of riding but that's it. Wheel does not come with a tyre or rotor. Rotor can be included for £5 and I can put on a Sam Hill Specialized Butcher DH tyre with lots of life left for another £25. Buyer can colllect from Bristol or I can ship for another £7.50. Thanks for looking.

I only used this stem for one ride before realising it was too long for my setup. I've now switched to a 50mm so this has to go. Note that this is the 0 degree rise version. It's in fantastic condition with no obvious marks. I can post for another £5 or buyer can collect from Bristol. My wife's hand is not included.

I've just swapped mine to a type 2 so this has to go! It has a couple of marks etc but it has never been bashed/bent and it shifts perfectly. I can post for another £5 or buyer can collect in Bristol. My wife's hand is not included.
