Do You Know How to Build a Wheel? - Pinkbike Poll
Always wanted to do this, thing I always struggled with was calculating the spoke length when speccing up a build and then went "ah f#@£ it I'll buy some hopes"

Specialized Hillbilly Grid Tire - Review
I fully expected that. However the comment was meant to be ironic

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
@CaptainBLT: feel for you mate, knee injuries suuuuck!! I'm still waiting for my pre op to take a tendon from my hammy and use it as a new ACL. Agree totally on the ascents being not much of an issue, usually. I guess what I was trying to say is that I might go quicker but do more mileage, so negating the speed element. I'd hate to have the land issues you guys have over there, there must be a solution. I mean don't get me wrong we have ours too but there's shit tons of trail centres round here that anyone/anything can ride but all the land registry land is I guess similar, we've built some tracks in the forest behind my house and maintain etc but one of the boys decided to put a kicker in there, some kid binned it and the council has ripped that whole track apart.its kinda different issues in that we can build stuff as long as it's totally secret or if it isnt it has to be 100% novice proof.

@isaac0 I'm guessing you've never ridden an ebike, lil bit narrow minded to say they're for people who don't want to pedal up hill, sure you can whack the watts up and go e-asy but they don't move on they're own motion. tbh I get more of a sweat-on on my emtb than I do on my "normal" MTB, it's depends on why you have an ebike, personally I wanna ride more trail in a shorter time so I put the same graft in as I do on my regular bike but I go a third quicker.

I'm from Europe, and more specifically Wales. I have an full bounce eMtb and 2 MTB. As a rider who has been part of this game since 92 I've seen all sorts from the early disc brakes and cheese suspension, the heavy as f@#& early 2000s era and so on, I've worked in bike shops, repped for transition, dakine,Kali etc across the country I live in so without sounding arrogant Id like to think I have both given and spent a relative portion of my life being involved in OUR sport and rolled with highs and lows of it and learnt a sh£t ton along the way. Cycling is my and OUR passion. For me, all this hate is getting ridiculous. People should and will choose what they ride when they want to ride it. Now we don't have land access issues like our brothers and sisters over the pond and I can see they're beef to a degree but as the article suggests it needs to be channeled correctly. But riding an emtb isn't cheating and it's not a "motorbike". If those of you have made comment but never ridden one your kinda missing the point of them, for example, I don't work any less climbing on my ebike than I do on my standard ones, same cadence same torque, however you go about a 3rd quicker which overall means I get to do 2 trails in one sitting. However emtbers shouldn't be made to feel like they have some form of contagious disease at the trailhead for they're choice of ride, and it says more about the person saying than it does the recipient. I've only ever encountered one issue of this sort when I've been out as most riders are relatively level headed, so to set the scene I was out on my own riding up a fire road to the next section, 3 fellas were a way off up front but naturally I caught them up, conscious I did t want to burn past I nodded said hello and I slowly went past. I stopped at the next trailhead to adjust my knee brace (I have no ACL and a torn meniscus) when these guys started to come closer, I heard them bickering amongst themselves with things like "us real humans" and "they shouldn't be allowed" etc. I chose not to say anything when They turned the corner and saw me there, of course initially they didn't say anything and I asked if they'd like to go first, to which I had a reply of no you better as your on a motorbike, I then explained that it wasn't and I'd leave ample space etc, it got a little tit for tat and it ended with 2 outcomes, me feeling like I had somehow wronged them and partial rage and them probably feeling like they shouldn't come back to that trail anymore (these plate my local tracks and these guys were from 3 hours away) anyway, my point is there are 2 sides to this and in-house fighting doesn't solve anything. WE all love cycling and I probably shouldn't of piped up myself or just let they're comments fly but I've reflected and it is what it is. Enjoy riding whatever bike you own, enjoy the woods, and the exercise. My only gripe is when did emtb's become the new roadies? Neg props to follow

Specialized Stumpjumper 6Fattie Comp, size XL

$1300 GBP
017 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR, 6fattie comp. Size XL I bought this bike about 10 months ago and have had great fun on it. It's an absolute blast to ride both up and down hills. But unfortunately for me I need to sell it due to a sustained injury in my knee which doesn't let me ride it like it should be. For the past month or so it's been sat in my garage not being used whilst I debate whether to sell or not, but the decisions been made and here it is. It's been well looked after and serviced regularly, that includes shock and forks too. I used to wrench in the industry so don't worry no bad DIY here ????. The bike comes with brand new, never been used wheels, brakes, shifter, rear mech, cassette, bars and stem, grips, saddle and seatpost. This is due to me fitting my own stuff to the bike when I first got it. It's had a brand new bottom bracket about 2 months ago as the old one was creaking. So it's pretty much brand new albeit the frame, suspension, tyres, cranks and chain. Just to note, even though I protected the bike with AMS guard there is some paint rub which I've captured in the photos on the right hand seatstay between the AMS guard and also on the crank arms but these are merely cosmetic. Thankyou for looking and if you are the next owner of this bike then I hope you have as much fun as I did on it. Any questions please ask, spec below. PayPal or cash on collection only, local collection only. Spec Size XL Stumpjumper, 27.5+/29" frame, red Fox float DPS, rear shock with autosag, Rockshox revelation RL forks, 150mm travel, maxle axle Brand new Specialized stem, bars and grips Brand new seat collar Brand new RSP plummet stealth dropper post, 125mm travel Brand new venge saddle Race Face aeffect cranks with 32 t chainring Race Face press fit BB Race Face crank boots, red Brand new DB5 brakes, 200mm disc front and rear Kmc chain, can't remember model. Brand new NX shifter and rear mech Brand new pg1130 cassette Wtb bridger tyres, 3.0 width. Brand new Roval 40mm width wheels with specialized hubs and DT Swiss spokes
