First Look: 2021 RAAW Jibb
@GazeeMW: I grew up in Oxfordshire and have ridden Cannock a good few times, prior to NZ I lived in Whistler though so am pretty used to steep and deep now. There's no denying my Scout feels more alive on gnarly trails, even with 130mm rear, 140mm front than it does for XC. I'm curious as to whether that is suspension kinematics, weight (it's about 16kg's with heavier tyres and cushcore etc) or the geo though. Obviously I'm just comparing to a single bike, not being a tester I don't have a big back catalogue of bikes to compare to. We do have a Tallboy at work though, and that also feels very capable for the travel and yet covers ground very well.

First Look: 2021 RAAW Jibb
@ridingofthebikes: I think what makes us playful and jibby is that it's short, it's a medium and I'm 5'9". After mulleting is about a 438mm reach and I would consider it playful everywhere. What it is NOT is a good technical climber, but it's a great trail bike and covers distances well - I did a 2200m 60km ride the other day and have an 80km+ ride planned soon. (Insert Yoda voice) 64 degree head angle doesn't a bad riding bike make. A combination of factors gives the result you're taking about, but it's not purely HA.

Depends on the bike, I've got a 2018 Transition Scout that I've mulleted with a 140mm fork and it now has a sub 64 degree head angle and yet it's the most playful bike I've owned for a LONG time. Definitely playful and jibby, and yet able to handle really steep terrain. (It has plenty of flaws too, but it's been a fun experiment and is far more variable than I expected it to be)

Michelin Launches New Force AM2 and Wild AM2 All-Mountain Tires
@DylanH93: If I look at the left tyre, it is inverted for me, once I look at the right tyre, they both look normal. VERY weird.

The valley with the penis shaped rocks is genuinely called 'Love Valley'. Yup, I know...

Really enjoyed all aspects of this, the background story turned this from 'just another quirky edit' into something very interesting. Nice skills too!

Results: New Zealand National DH Series Round 3 - Nelson
Is no one talking about how Jenna is faster at 16 than Louise is, and Louise is elite. I've ridden with Louise and she's bloody fast, Jenna must be fearless and crazy fast! Plus Louise lives in Nelson, so it's a home trail for her. Very, very impressive from Jenna.

@nathanhughes: For some reason this is greyed out and unclickable for me. Any idea why? I'm logged in.

Glad someone else picked up on 'stroking cats'... Yeah, sure Phil. I'm sure you mean 'cats'.
