Cotic Launches the New BFeMAX Hardcore 29" Hardtail
@cotic-bikes: Please don't take me serious, I was just kidding. I love your brand, I constantly drool over your products and very likely I'll be a customer one day in the future. I'm very keen on a steel bike, especially as a retro bike collector that has ridden quite a few bikes and has a huge appreciation for the feel of steel. But for now I'm saving money for a 29” DH bike, as I'm pretty pleased with my Foxy 29. Thank you for replying to my dipshit comment, though. It proves that you have way more class than me, honestly. But I send you genuine love from green Transylvania. Actually, a few hours ago I finished my evening ride and met my buddy who owns a Cotic and talked about his bike and this one over here, as we both read the article. Chapeau, guys! :)

Throwback Thursday: Jared Graves' World Champs Medal on an Enduro Bike
I love Saints and I also dig Shimano's ease to bleed quite a lot, but last year a threw some Maguras on my bike while waiting for XT 4-pots and fell in love with them, even if that lever is ugly (as if that was a factor). I firmly believe that Shimano have done quite a lot for the brake game in terms of affordable stopping power and ease of maintenance, so they are a good standard, but they have been trumped in the mean time. I think they are just as important to the general picture like Hope were (as pioneers), like Hayes were (as affordable stopping power for THAT day), like Avid were (brakes that worked for those times' standards with parts that were easy to find and mix everywhere) etc. I write the above while having mostly Shimano brakes on most of my bikes, that meaning DH, DJ/street and enduro rig, plus the bikes I borrow to my friends when they need one. On two of those I have the cheapest Shimano hydraulics and they are better than a lot of the older top-end brakes from other brands. The best Shimano brake I have owned, though, is the M785 XT, an amazing product - light and powerful, able to stop my 100+ kg at the time, albeit on 26” wheels.

Photo Story: A Lifetime of Avoiding the 9-5 with Nigel Page
Met this guy in 2002 at the World Champs in Kaprun, the first major race I've been at and hitchhiked to. Ended up chatting to him and Greg during 4X training, as they were both injured. Both amazing and down-to-earth individuals. I dared to ask Nigel for a team jersey. He excused himself for not having one with him, as he was injured, but asked me for an address and brought me two sets of prototype tires. Circa 4 months later I received a package with a brand new jersey and my heart raced. I still have the mud tires, as I have used them only during races and protected them well, and the jersey is displayed in our local shop since quite a while. Every time I met Nige at a race he took his time for a little chat, regardless how busy he was. Some people are so nice that words fail while trying to describe them. I tip my hat to you, Mr. Page, from here to eternity! I also believe that this ability to connect with the fans, the lack of major barriers between us and the top athletes, is one of the things that make our sport so good. There are quite a few nice people out there, but Nigel Page is probably a World Champion in Niceness! :)

Check Out: Carbon Wheels, Active Jeans, Origami Fenders, Lights & More
@habskater11: I dig the thought of quality products that cost something for a reason. But here at Lidl a pair of slim-fit jeans is 10 EUR and a can of textile waterproofing liquid is 3 EUR. I'm not saying this combo is as worthy as these above, but damn it's worth a shot! It just happens that I own jeans from various brands that are considered good quality, but none of them comes even close in terms of comfort with those cheapos!

11 Riding Glasses Ridden & Rated
...and the lens quality is nowhere in the vicinity of Oakley. While compromise is possible, there are no wonders in this world.

Photo Epic: Earth Day - A Tribute to the Landscapes We Enjoy on Two Wheels
Oh, wow! What a bunch of self righteous people! Interesting to learn that a collection of beautiful imagery about nature can trigger some to fabricate themselves neon signs and billboards that point out to the aforementioned self righteousness. My deepest congratulations, what can I say! ;)
