Patrol 672 – Review
facebook says this is "the first in a series of affordable trailbike reviews" maybe the other brand's bikes you keep mentioning are in the pipeline! either way reading reviews of bikes we're more likely to buy is great. for me personally i got a bike about a week before you released a review of it, luckily you guys (@vernonfelton that radon swoop tho) quite liked it.

Nukeproof Horizon CL Clipless Pedal - Review
i got these a few days ago and bought new shimano SPDs to go with them (got the pedals second hand) and they are so difficult to clip into, at this rate im going to put my shimano DXs back on. any tips? lighter riders cant even clip in because they cant put enough force on the clip, and once im in they unclip really easily.

CushCore Tire Insert - Review
@allballz: sticking them together into a ring wasnt an issue (just tape worked fine) it was losing that outer skin that made it lose all its strength, although i think you might have just solved that!

CushCore Tire Insert - Review
@preach: I did that, well, i bought like 4 noodles, cut them into 15mm thick strips (they 60mm diameter) and then once you cut them, you realise how losing that outer layer of (im guessing melted plastic) makes the noodle super soft, as if it will do nothing in an impact. my solution: wrap the noodle in fibre glass tape at 90deg to the direction that the rim will impact it, the tape will not tear and will give the noodle that outer skin it needs. My advice after the experiment: it totally works and is much cheaper than any retail alternative, but unless you use at least 30mm thick pool noodle you will still damage your rim, even if you dont damage your tyre in big impacts what i learnt: the tape at 90deg to the rim bead is brilliant and will stop the snake bites in the foam and help your insert survive longer, whatever insert you used (I've since changed to another insert, but still wrapped it in tape) the problem is that it gets in the way of your sealant flow, only i'm not sure if that is actually a problem or not because i cant see inside my tyre

Transition Sentinel - Review
This is the only 29in trailbike that i genuinely yearn for, more so than the spez and the trek. one thing though, id love to see a re-review of the original sworks enduro 29. this transition is said to climb well but are the standards for good climbing getting lower? compared to new bikes the old enduro is short, steep and has a high bb, but i still in a heartbeat recommend it to all my friends looking for new 2nd hand bikes.

New Dropper Post and Forks from Manitou - Eurobike 2017
that duroc wheelset sounds great! id like to see how durable they are in a review because lets be honest, a review on a wheelset like that is much better consumer advice than a review on a king/enve wheelset (speaking of, wheres that review on the lightbicycle rims?) also thank goodness they let you mix and match, my bike came with a normal 100mm front end and a 148 back end its really annoying!

Life On a Bike with Tracy Moseley - Video
dont overestimate that race, its long and hard sure, but its not technical. If you frequent this site daily i find it highly likely that youre a better technical rider than most people outside the top 50 or so. also its super expensive. For me, its on my doorstep, but it's still cheaper to do trans provence!
