Video: Chris Akrigg - The Water Cycle
That really sucks, knowing I won't be able to pull stunts like that in this lifetime on a bike:) Finally some real (mountain) biking for a change though. Vids were getting a touch mundane? Thanks for lighting things up again Chris.

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Prepared, or Are You a Parasite?
There are actually three types of broken down riders....1 the weight weeny who feels unashamed to bum off his fellow trail rider, will happily scoff on my energy bar and dried fruit while he ponders were else he can save weight. His the guy that flys past you on a climb in glee while you carrying your Enduro or trail bike with all the needed repair tools etc. 2 rider two is the guy equipped but genuinely is stuck because he forgot to buy another tube after loaning his out the previous week to a weight weenie chop and now his stuck or just genuinely forgot a tool behind. 3. The novice who really believes mountain bikes are like road bikes and only requires a mini tool kit and some patches and glue. I can forgive him as his in the learning curve and so too number 2 because its not intentional. Back to number one....I have no remorse in making him walk back to his car 10 miles away in his light weight weenie stiletto carbon fibre shoes....offering him assistance will only make him rely on guys like us.

Epic Crash: Don't Always Follow Your Friends
Frikking hell!!! Suspension has come a long way:) I thought it was fake too but obviously there is more than one screwed up rim among those bikes.... a good lesson to be learned here, follow blindly at your own peril. Thanks to the leader the rest just pummelled right on straight on.

Trek Remedy 9 29 - Review
Im missing something here. I've got XTR trail brakes and a Reverb working perfectly together. Reverse your right action Reverb to the left side of the bar operation under the bar as opposed to above the bar keeping it completely out of harms way as well as a more natural feel and operation. It's a slicker solution full stop and works nicely. Bonus, since I have a SRAM 11 setup it keeps the right side clutter free too. Just a thought, work well for me

650B For Giant's 2014 Elite-Level Mountain Bikes
Finally a company that's done a proper test not only in the lab but in the real world with real riders. I've been sitting on the sideline watching for sometime and I'm super stoked to see intelligent progression of this nature. 29ers were never tested against other alternatives before selling in such massive numbers. I walked into my local bike shop Friday and found every bike a 29er....sad, because that's sheep mentality. But I always suspected and feel 27.5 is just right, right for a massive segment, maybe not jumping, maybe not super aggressive downhill although that's likely to change, but its so hard to argue against it. My local trails are cemented rock trails and a 27.5 is on the cards, trails are become more demanding too. One thing I've promised myself in life as I get older...don't age like those old complaining folks that are always reminding us that things were better in the old bygone days and that the new generation has lost the plot:) I plan to stay young at mind and keep growing. Why do people hate progression in nature and life. It's who we are as humans. Things will be fine tuned and will change and will progress and yes there will be complaints along the way, but it's for our own good in the long run. Like my recently purchased and yes expensive XX1. I love it's simplicity, feels like a single speed and silently goes about its business without any hiccups. And thanks to the first consumers out there paying stupid prices like I did the costings will come down and benefit all. Thanks also to the masses that bought into a large % of the 29er hype. Let them be the crash test dummies. Let's try stay open minded about wider bars, thicker diameters bars, drop post, short stems, composite materials, electronic suspension, more suspension and a alternative wheel size that will make ripping up the trails a even bigger and awesome experience:)

Pinkbike Poll: Are Trails Becoming Too Manicured?
I eat food, sometimes I like a rare bleeding steak and chips with deep fried onions, sometimes I like a spit chicken with veg, sometimes just plain fish and chips, Christ man...if we all stuck to the same type of trails what a frikking boring world this would be!!!

Superenduro PRO 4: Madesimo, Race Day!
I was privileged enough to ride the event today. One thing that stands out is how well the organizers put everything together. The prologue was just so spectator friendly last night running through the village people shouting every rider on to the finish. The start this morning off the ramp and Enrico Guala's interviewing every biker before proceeding off the ramp was so cool. Madesimo is a beautiful Italian village and what a stellar job these guys did., I plan on returning next year. Riders safety is first priority here, bikes need to be sorted and rider protection is top of the list. The stages were challenging, especially the second stage...... some seriously rooted and rutted stuff and fatigue on the last run had me hanging on for life:) Trust me, overall fitness does make a difference. But the thing that stood out the most apart from the slog to the top was how much everyone was part of one team....just good fashioned proper mountain biking, cool trails and a friendly vibe whether pro or beginner. What a awesome atmosphere. Here's to superenduro growing and growing!!
