Bird Gravity Enduro Welsh Open EWS Qualifier
@km79: Maybe, but it would have had the same effect if she had raced in the elite category where she belongs.

Should Rach be allowed to enter in 'Sport' class?! Training for the next Dh race and not taking it too seriously I suppose, but certainly removes the chance for the other women to take a win!

Norco Sight C 9.2 – Review
I think you may need to have a go on one of the new shortish travel 29ers before you make this judgement It is entirely the point that it is as sturdy as a 150mm 27.5 bike as you will be doing the same kind of riding on it, the larger wheel allowing for shorter travel on the rear and only losing out on very heavy impacts - The new 29er DH bikes also have less travel than the shorter wheeled bikes. What is 'XC territory' and what does that even mean? Is a HT therefore an XC bike? Did you miss Rude and others running 130mm rear travel bikes at certain EWS races - You do also realise that it is 130 v 150mm and not 90 v 150mm - Its only around a 16% decrease in travel. By your opinion if I can build a DH bike for 32lb should I just use that for trail riding?

XC World Cup Round 1, Nove Mesto - Course Preview With Tracey Moseley
From the photos that XC course looks pretty damn fun to me - Would almost make be want to do an XC race if it wasnt for the fact I would probably die due to lack of fitness about 1/4 of the way around the first lap. This looks fantastic for XC though, bringing the techincal element out of this form of riding and I imagine making riders think about bike setup, epecially tyres with the rocks / roots.

Enduro World Series Round 3, Madeira - Results
@nozes: Time to learn from that, no point having a light bike if you cant finish, especially as enduro isn't a single stage race, its all about consistency and you cant have that without a reliable bike.

Enduro World Series Round 3, Madeira - Results
@Ketzal: As you say, its tyres isn't it, Graves didn't seem to get as many on Maxxis and he doesn't seem like a smash / pound kind of rider like some of the other guys. Does he run a proto casing? The standard Specialized Grid (I think that's right?) casing is fine for my kind of aggro trail riding but wouldn't cut it riding DH course style terrain, especially at his kind of pace!

@G-A-R-Y: Do the right thing and give your friend who is new to MTB a chance to ride a frame that fits him - dont make him ride a frame that is a few sizes too small just because you like it... Some people embrace change, others keep say they know best, go figure.
