Living the Dream: David Rosen's Flow Motion Titanium Hardtail
@commondemoninator: I've successfully had one Ti frame from Tennessee which did crack ;) Honestly though, you're kidding yourself if you really think a big Chinese outfit which has been successfully producing Ti bikes for a couple of decades is turning out rubbish, just because you met a couple of Chinese chancers once upon a time.

Living the Dream: David Rosen's Flow Motion Titanium Hardtail
Very pretty, but... Screwed on HT badge? Nope. Why add the extra stress riser for zero gain? Yes, it's highly unlikey to cause an issue, but I'd glue on a couple of screwheads if the aesthetic turned me on that much. No chainstay bridge? An area of massive stress without support is asking for trouble imo. There's a reason they have been standard on frames since forever. I'd be checking in there for cracks regularly. 44/56 head tube seems like a no brainer to me. Allows messing around with the full range of anglesets to change the character of the bike. Also gives a huge area to weld a phat downtube onto. I've had two custom frames direct from China for £800 - £850. Fair play to the guy for making US manufacturing work, but I'd find it hard (impossible!!) to justify the extra cost. Regardless of the details, a really good Ti hardtail is a thing of joy to own and use!

Mountain Biker in Manchester Seriously Injured After Motorbike Hit and Run on Trails
I don't wear a full face and body armour to look more moto, I wear it to look more scrambly. Moto is a nonsense American affectation. It always has been, and always will be, scrambler. I am not a local journalist.

Photo Epic: Following the Ancient Berber Trail Through Morocco's High Atlas Mountains
Brings back very happy memories of riding there with Ciclo Montana on their first organised trip. These pics look so familiar. I'm thinking about going back in May,but the beheading does make you think about alternatives. I feel so sorry for the lovely people we met in Morocco. Livelihoods will be wrecked thanks to the wretched Allahu akbar wanker mob.

Hipster beards 'n' tats but drinking shitey Export? I didn't realise that was even possible. I mean, I don't think it's even dry hopped with organic single estate hops!

First Ride: Crankbrothers Carbon Synthesis Wheels
Surely it can't be long now until the reintroduction of steel rims? Now that compliance and recycling is so important. Also, no issues nowadays with rim brakes on shiny chrome rims :)
