Throwback Thursday: Mountain Biking Console Games
I still have both No Fear and Downhill Domination from when they came out - never really liked No Fear (control/movement was clunky and tracks seemed pretty boring) but DD was the shiz - IIRC basically a remake of SSX snowboarding, but that's no bad thing! Everything so OTT and fun, with responsive controls and and just enough real stuff to make it feel like biking, like weight shifting, catching the backside of transitions etc. And you could ride the Foes DHS Mono! :) Still play it on PC - using the original disc with an emulator makes it look something like this - - much better textures and resolution.

Throwback Thursday - Gee Atherton's Bonkers 2010 Rampage Wall Ride
And that, folks, is why you don't buy a pro rider's used frame! :P

Jeff Steber Returns as Intense CEO [Updated]
I really don't like it. Compare the carbon M29 to the raw alu prototype - no contest, the proto stomps all over it IMO. To me it's what an Intense should be - sleek and muscular at the same time. The carbon job looks like it's bent in the middle - I think it's the horrible kink of the downtube around the shock and the flatter seatstays compared to the protos. It's like a reversal of the old days when Intense looked fast and the SC V10 looked like a camel! :D

Your Bike Is Fine Already. Just Ride It. - Opinion
@pinhead907: Well, I'm running a 12-year-old 26" non-boost quick-release aluminium short/steep/high bike with X7 2x gearing - I'm sure at least a dozen people will have had a heart attack by the time they finish reading that! :D

Kenda Helldiver Pro DH Tire - Review
@tall-martin: That's cos the tread compound was harder than dried Weetabix! :D I felt sorry for the tarmac... £20 a pair tho and that pro-bike look (although you can be sure the pro's didn't use the el cheapo version!). The good old days... My first DH bike, 17 years ago - Tioga sofa seat too! :)

Curtain Call: Finals Photo Epic - Val Di Sole DH World Cup 2017
@davetrumpore: I thought as much - after all, I couldn't see Bruni doing a race run with all his telemetry equipment still attached! ;) Great photos, I love these race (and pre-race) reports and photo epics.

Remember These? 11 Classic Mountain Bikes - Crankworx Whistler 2017
PB is around so much modern bike bling, anything with 26" wheels probably looks like a classic to them! :D Not sure I would count the Commencal and the Scott Gambler, they're only a couple of design iterations removed from today's models - hardly classic yet! The Cove with it's awesome Shiver and the BMW, on the other hand... (Anyone remember the TMX - the definitive huck-to-flat bike? :P) I'd be happy to run one of those Shivers or early 888s now - the HSCV damping, plushness and live-forever reliability is that good. Sadly other folk know that too and the used prices are pretty high! Some of the old-skool geometry is painful to look at! Nice to see that there are more than a few of us who can't afford or don't feel the need to get the latest mass-produced marketing jobs and are happy plugging away on such characterful machines! :)
