Innsbruck Bans Downhill Bikes from Public Transport
@Veloscente, @BadgerBacker: I think the right to roam by legal definitions is limited to Sweden (I used to ride around trashing @WAKI's back-yard until a year or two ago) and Scotland. Sweden was great because it was a total free-for-all (from my perspective, at least). Right to roam, nobody giving you sh!t about anything, very technical trails with huge potential for mistakes and..... cheap insurance to cover whatever level of stupidity you're at. I think France has some kind of insurance framework for trailbuilders and landowners. Effectively it means if you stick to posted trails, biking, hiking or multi-use, the landowner is protected from whatever your health insurer's lawyers try to throw at them. Other countries in the west I don't know how the law works, but I've found Spain, Portugal and Italy easy-going in all respects. Switzerland a bit mixed (canton dependent), Germany is quite restrictive and Austria has to be the only place I've ever been where the Fun Police are better funded than The Netherlands. From what I can tell the anti-MTB mentality in Germany/Austria/The Netherlands is very much a combination of the angry hiking lobby and all trails being on private land, with landowners fearful of either conflicts or claims.

Part of this is dependant on the legal framework. Out here, landowners are still liable even if they put up multiple billboards full of warnings and pointing out the dangers of the particular trail. There have recently been a few cases where injured riders' health insurers have tried to recover costs by sueing the landowners and trailbuiders. These parties have no legal protection or funding, for the most part. The problem of course is the "somebody's gotta pay" mentality that also exists among a significant portion of the riders. We don't really have an outdoor culture and are extremely risk-averse. Funny (or sad) to see how big the contrast is with e.g. France or Scandinavia. Between that and the lack of mountains I think it's time for me to emigrate again....

Fox SLS spring 425 xx 2.75"

$125 EUR
Used for about 5 rides in XC terrain, unfortunately I ended up needing a slightly heavier spring rate. Condition is good as new. Buyer pays shipping cost. I'm happy to ship outside of the EU but be aware this might be expensive and incur additional import duties.

Fox CTD shock + Vorsprung Corset upgrade, 200x57 mm

$175 EUR
Used but good condition Fox CTD shock with Vorsprung Corset air sleeve. Air sleeve has recently (200 km ago) been serviced with new seals. Shock will accept a remote lever for the CTD adjust. Shock size is 200x57 LV (large volume). User pays shipping cost, so I'm fine shipping outside of the EU but be aware it will likely be expensive (and incur import duties).

Shining the Spotlight on 3 Female Mountain Bikers in 'Unconventional'
@lifeofloon: I'm sure his location (and flag) choice was entirely accidental.

@ka81: No. Can you explain why you insist on using belittling titles all the time?
