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.

January 2018 - Good Month or Bad Month?
Looks like a few people disagree with my comment. Fair call. I will do some research to see if i just misread some tech info out on the web. Cheers all.

Apparently, you cant turn off the Strava heat map function. No matter what private settings you select. Check out previous pinkbike Strava articles for more info

Mike VS Mike: How We'd Spend Our Money - Video
Just purchased a Transitional Sentinal NX this month. In Oz, it came to $4700 delivered after taxes. ( Im thinking PB may be discussing in US dollars, as that is there largest target audience? ) Im happy so far with the NX groupset, that came with this bike. The NX derailers clutch an spring feel significantly heavier duty over my previous shamino set ups. (Xt/XTR.. .closer to a old saint spring tension feel) The derailer even survived a large crash and slide down a boulder rock face last week (which ground down the face of the derailer, steel for the win!) Ps: I did changed over my saint brakes before riding, as they always get swapped onto my new steads.

Here's My Zerode Taniwha Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
I have been saving $$$ for one of these Zerodes, when the Transition Sentinal came along an took my money. Picked up the Sentinal 3wks ago, and its a beast! (16kg out of the box , with no pedals. It feels fast, but some how very calming on track when pointed down hill in anger ) Questions regarding the Zerode- - Is the grip shift chunky in the hand, and does it make hard to reach the brake lever? (Looks like long TRP levers might help ) - Can you test it with a 29ner front wheel and fork? Rumours indicate, it performs very well with this mod. - Will there be a 29ner version in the future? Once it goes 29inch/ rapid thumb shifter / 6-8 speed wide ratio box i might start saving again. Till then.. .. Braap, braap!

Stan's is Auctioning Off Kyle Strait's (Unused) Custom Rampage Wheelset for NICA
@zulki-fly: Yes, i think your right about the spoke tension being too high on the initial build. As I was regularly checking both my wheels after fitting, waiting for the traditional new wheel loosening to occur. It never happened, so i just assumed the rim was extra tough or i was getting soft.
