First Ride: Yeti's New SB130
I've had the Sentinel Alu for 8 months now. It's not a super efficient climber, but it constantly surprises me with its ability on technical ascent. It out climbs all my previous bikes, when things get rough & tricky.

Industry Weighs in on the Latest Round of US Tariffs on Chinese Mountain Bike Imports
The US joined the IMF in approving the international floating of the Chinese currency years ago. This was to allow a massive US borrowing binge, but ignored the long tradition of IMF affiliated country’s requirement to hold massive amounts of gold in reserves to pin there currency value against. Now this has all backfired, as the currency is heavily manipulated in order to wage industrial war against its manufacturing competitors. Coincidentally, the flow on effect has also screwed the aspersions of a generation of youth (In free trade/non tariff operating countries like Australia). Buy allowing Chinese Government affiliates to buy domestic houses in foreign lands, with money still warm from the press (a form of international land banking/ currency cleaning). Thus creating massive house price inflation, and locking a local generation of youth out of home ownership. Im not a Trump fan, but cheap “Free Trade” Chinese bikes for us Aussies has also unfortunately brought us unaffordable $1million average price houses. So who’s the real winner?

Aaron Gwin Talks World Cup Racing - Video
One of my favourite Christian songs is “Spirit in the Sky” by Norman Greenbaum. It’ would be great to see Aaron do a fast DH video edit to this. As its a rock’n track, and it would stir up all the haters!

Giant Factory Off-Road Team Reveals 2018 Bikes
I’d be surprised if they are not just xtr trail levers stuck on ( Shamino fail to acknowlgde they have any saint lever design problems). But a lot of riders in Oz, are ditching the levers. I have a full saint set, and they appear to have some major design flaws ( pump up, bore taper issues, air capturing in lines and in the claiper.) Im currently about to try some xtr race levers, as running the xtr trail version was still no good. If this dont work, im done with Shimano.
