I ride and race Dh as well as trail riding, I am not a keyboard warrior and ride master, I am current Scottish vets Dh champion and have done my time to make educated comments based on experience. I train hard for racing.

Ridden & Rated: 4 of the Best eMTB Motor Systems for 2020 - Bosch vs Brose vs Shimano vs Fazua
I would have loved to put these little plastic beasts on a test rig in my last job, get the hysteresis brake out, stick some hall effect balanced current sensors on the phases and see how they really perform. Maybe stick them in the environmental chamber. Compare them to our military and oil and gas motor drives.

I guess as we have no choice but to pedal or push, pedalling just becomes the normal here. So long as its not over 16C coz we melt like snowmen once its too hot.

Sweet video. I would want my Enduro bike for that trail, looked like a long old push back to the top. Pop the saddle up, down a few gears and tootle back on up, lap it all day (well after raking those leaves off, gotta go full bike park).

Throwback Thursday: Jared Graves' World Champs Medal on an Enduro Bike
The track is more reminiscent of a 2019 track than old school tracks. The LesGets or South Africa!

@christinachappetta: your videos are really good. Keep them coming. We ran 750mm Funn full on bars way back then. Sam made that sweep and rise popular, so many riders have done well with those bars (Gwinn too).

Nice video, never really got the elbows forward position, you dont bench press or pressup there. Elbows back slightly for me (I am 6ft 1 with narrow shoulders though) just like in the Shore section of follow me. https://youtu.be/KmvOwYbugag?t=116

@Niseach1: You are right, who likes puddles and water on your their expensive bikes... I remember back in the day when we just rode through puddles and there wasnt a trail team to fix them and build bigger berms... I recall racing and the park rats turning up with their dry tyres on in the wet and complaining it was too hard and that the track should be changed. Those with wet weather tyres on didnt have an issue. Neg prop away rats ;) haha

Nice looking XC trail, It would be great if we didnt have to bring in material to cover the trails with but then they would just all get hammered too quickly. We are lucky and have low traffic volume on all the non man made stuff up here so can ride natural 99% of the time.
