The Brechfa Club
Have stayed with Jay and Nikki not long after they opened for business, it was fantastic then and I can see they've done loads since. They certainly put everything into it.

Pinkbike Product Picks
Okay I'm intrigued. I had a tack in my tyre last week and pulled it out. The stans fluid in the tyre was fresh replacement out of a new bottle only 2 weeks earlier ( i shake the bottle for about 2 mins) but it wouldn't seal up. Fluid spraying out everywhere and looked really thin. Air temperature was I guess around 2 degrees at time or less which made me wonder if that was a possible factor. It sealed temporarily but as soon as I began to inflate tyre it opened up again and sprayed through what was quite a tiny hole where tack punctured. Been looking out for alternate product since, I get the concept of the baby powder because of this experience. Are they talking just like Johnsons talc powder here?

Complete bike. I believe it is a 15" frame. Good bike with good level of components for serious use. Make a great Xmas present. Currently built up as a 1 x 9 setup and really is a bike that will last a long time. Much better value than buying some new s'#t bike if you know what to look for in a bike. Frame was professionally powder coated at Argos Bristol and bike has only done about 50 miles of riding since that time. Talas adjustable 110 - 130 mm forks (serviced 2 years ago at MOJO and bike not used) Maxxis High roller tyres Saint rear derailleur Deore shifter Hayes hydraulic brakes Monkey Lite Bars Race Face respond 175 cranks with bash plate Hope Doctor SDG Patriot saddle Shimano XTR bottom bracket Can be viewed in Cwmbran area. Looking for as close to £500 as possible

5 Movement Tips to Help Your Cornering Technique
Cheers James. Thanks for the video updates. Its good to have the technique broke down and have these visualization reminders to apply on the trail. As you mention its easier to fall back to a drill technique when things aren't quite working out. Good work.

Pinkbike Poll: The Demise of 26'' Wheels - Unnecessary Extinction or Natural Evolution?
The industry is totally messed up now IMO. Haven't ridden a 650B and I'm sure its advantages are probably justified to the pros and serious amateur racers, but most people will be happy riding what they have got and unsettled by all the changes. Personally I ride an Alpine 160, its newest creation is still in 26". Myself, I would be holding back on changing my bike with the current crop of wheel size offerings. Rather keep my money in my pocket and see what develops, although if I was a serious amteur racer I would probably look to the merits of 650B. New purchasers must be seriously confused and probably doped in to making purchases based on biased revues rather than the real issues of the bike, frame, ongoing maintenance and the type of riding they really will end up doing. I know guys who have been duped into the 29" revolution on their first hardtails and now fitting dropper posts etc and I'm thinking whats the point, the bike is only good for XC racing and such, whereas I think if they had stuck with a 26" even if the geometry etc hadn't been perfect, they would at least have some sort of chance at moving in to other areas of MTB riding.
