Wish I was born in 1950 so I hit all the best music. But then I'd be too old to hit all the best trails.

Results: Timed Training - Val di Sole World Cup DH 2019
Rules, Legislation, Societal Conventions and Contemporary Perspectives all considered; that person is not a threat to either podium at the top end. They can and want to fit in - within their sport and own head-space - they are a good rider, with support of all sorts, no doubt. Get on and do it, make a noise, create a scene. Others will condemn or condone forever.... It is, however, important to remember facts.

Bike Shops and Overheard Conversations - Sunday Comics with Taj Mihelich
@pinnityafairy: It's a shame the internet has created this perception. At my bike shop; everything is priced at recommended retail prices suggested by the various manufacturers and distributors - no raping mark-ups of double the price. Regular customers get reciprocal thanks in the form of a bit of discount, the odd free tweak of the gears or the like. Other customers can have a squirt of air, some shop rides, somewhere to leave their bike whilst they wander round town. We even price match the internet where we can afford it. The problem is big grey-market, non-boxed items, usually Shimano or SRAM groupset stuff left over from bike company over-orders. Or just over-buying from these internet companies. Who then rape the price to gain turnover (CRC and Wiggle are only just turning a profit because the have reduced this business model) and make the LBS look like Dick Turpin; when all we want is for peeps to enjoy cycling - you think the goons in the warehouse at CRC care what you've bought and whether it'll fit your bike?

The Daily Shregimen - Video
Bollocks. This does nothing other than make me jealous, doesn't get me stoked to ride or rad out on the shred vid. Just names of places and not enough riding, I want summer and I want riding in BC. I want endless trails and jump lines. I want the rain to end and never to wash my bike again. I want free plane tickets to Vancouver. I want a cave on a mountain with a front door drop-off and stacks of smoky single malt. I want it all and I want it now. Angst rant over.

Practically new pair of CK hubs, laced with DT Swiss Comps on WTB Frequency Team rims. Stainless freehub upgrade. Front is 20mm and rear is 142x12. I bought these to tart up my full sus, everyone was buying new bikes so I had to do something. I have bent to peer pressure though, and am after a bigger DH bike. These hubs don't fit the new frame unfortunately, or I would keep them. I have done about four rides, they are basically new wheels. Still got the boxes the hubs came in, and warranty registration. The front wheel has two tiny tiny dings on one side where I had the tyre pressure too low first time out. They are minor and only noticeable putting it in a wheel truing jig. Have been running tubeless, so all taped up with valves included. Please text if you are interested. I can drive and meet to some extent, let me know. Looking at about £450, no trades. Cheers
