First Ride: Specialized's New Turbo Levo FSR
@GravesendGrunt: when we were looking at a kinevo the other weekend they told us that a replacement battery was around £720 so it's really not that much in the grand scheme of things.

YT Tues CF

$2300 GBP
For sale is my YT Tues CF 2017 in fantastic condition, bought new by me in June last year and used for a week in the Alps and around 4 local rides between then and this summers Alps trip where i rode for 5 days. I am the first owner and i am happy to provide frame numbers if you wanted to check stolen bike registers or anything as I appreciate how many bikes are going missing these days and it is a lot of money to risk. It is still in fantastic condition with no cracks or dents and I haven't even noticed any minor scratches on there either. Invisiframed straight out of the box. I rarely get time to ride these days and it seems a waste to have the bike sat around doing nothing. Though I am open to sensible offers i will not be selling for a rock bottom price, I would rather hang onto it for a while longer in case the mood strikes to go ride it. I also have a Specialized Enduro so i have no need to swap. (unless maybe someone had a Vitus E-sommet. More pictures available over the weekend if needed. Spec is heavily upgraded from the original bike and with the exception of the chain guide was new or almost new when fitted. Large Tues CF frame Bos Void air shock Marzocchi 380 ti Forks Easton Havoc seat post SDG Ti-Fly saddle Chromag Stem (not pictured) Renthal handlebars, the ones in the picture are a bit tatty so i will switch them with the ones from my endure which are near enough brand new. Avid Guide RS Brakes E13 Wheels Schwalbe Magis Mary Super Gravity tyres running tubeless (switching to these from Maxxis with DH tubes saved over a kilo in weight) Shimano Zee gears on 7 speed E13 cassette Sram X0 DH Cranks with Works components direct mount chainring Lightweight KMC chain in Gold (these actually match the fork adjusters along with the chain ring) Collection preferred from Wakefield, West Yorkshire. I can send via courier within mainland UK if needs be but i will only ship if paid by bank transfer and payment has cleared and shipping fees cover full insurance so everyone is covered if the worst happens. Thanks for reading

Loic Bruni Isn't the Family's Only DH World Champion
well, I've just spent a couple of weeks in Morzine riding with my Dad, he's 70 now and still loving it, feeling it a lot more the next day, but loving it all the same. can't be too many people that age with a carbon DH bike. i'm proud as punch about it :)

Brand New Tech: The Sequence Downhill Bike - Crankworx Les Gets 2018
having looked into playing with composites for car parts, this is a very impressive project. so many home built or low volume bikes look awkward in some way but this genuinely looks like it could have come from one of the major player quite easily. Also if this is meant to be a medium it is nice to see a 440mm reach, i still think many frames are too short in the reach, at 5'8" it seems crazy that i should need a large or extra large in some cases to feel comfortable on the bike. Respect is definitely due for this build!

Winning Bikes: Fort William World Cup DH 2018
@WAKIdesigns: I haven't had chance to use any of the Addix stuff yet but after 2 weeks in Morzine i may well do. i had the big betty in single ply and that seemed decent so i bought a vertstar DH compound one for drier stuff and never really used it for more than a day. in the UK the magic mary seem to be perfect all round.

@Deartist7: apologies, i thought he was still on schwalbe in 2016. i will however say that everyone i know who has swapped to schwalbe from maxxis have said that they wouldn't change back. i know i wouldn't.

Spanish Company Gemini Announces €650 1-Piece Bar & Stem
@enjuto: i never said it was. i said that it wasn't as unrealistic as many other components that people happily buy.

Spanish Company Gemini Announces €650 1-Piece Bar & Stem
so an ENVE DH rim is £1100 GBP. The weight isn't exactly super light but you still see a reasonable amount of them on the trails. there are plenty of aluminium options that are as light or lighter and more than strong enough for DH use at around 70 GBP a rim. That's a little over 15 times more expensive to buy an ENVE rim than say a Stan's flow EX or similar. a decent bar and stem combo from a top manufacturer you are looking at around £150 which means you can buy 3.8 barn and stem set ups for the price of the Gemini version, so in reality, it isn't that expensive compared to what you see on the trail quite regularly in the form of other components. I won't be buying one personally but when it is using reasonably new and expensive technologies it's almost an affordable price. Bearing in mind that R and D costs will be spread over fewer units compared to the thousands of Fatbar carbons that Renthal will shift every year. i'd be more upset that an x0 DH rear mech will set you back £235 quid when a Zee variant can be had for less than £50 but you still see plenty of x) stuff on the trails. people WIll buy these bars because people like to have stuff like that. and fair play to them!
