Video: Missy Giove - The Champion Mountain Biker Turned Drug Smuggler
One of the greats, up there with Palmer, CG, ACC and Ratboy. Too many riders now are so focused on the race run they have no personally. I don't condone what she did, but it looks like she goes all out with everything she does and the world needs people like that. I hope you both enjoy the time you have left together.

5 Surprisingly Nice Catalogue Frames - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
I will never buy a bike that doesn't have a standard threading bb. Even hope pressfit bbs start creaking after 6 months. My threadfit Chris king is still going strong after 10 years on the same bearings, just new grease every year.

Cane Creek Announces New Hellbender 70 Headset
Yeah but a king headset will still be running smooth on the original bearings in 10 years time while there will be 10 sets ofcane Creek bearings decaying in landfill in comparison.

Cane Creek Announces New Hellbender 70 Headset
The way I see it, I generally buy a new bike and keep it for 5 years. With a bog standard headset like this you would expect to change the bearings once a year. Thats say £40 including labour each year. So say £70 for the headset and £200 in maintaining Compare that to a Chris king at £140, the bearings will still be super smooth after 5 years, you have the blig factor of having king components on your bike, and you would get £50 on eBay if it doesn't fit your new bike. King may seem expensive, but they will save you a boatload of cash in the long run. I have a king threaded bb I bought 10 years ago and it's still going strong with little maintenance and paid for its self many times over and sent a lot less waste to landfill.

Nukeproof Unveils 2019 Bike Lineup
I have the 2018 mega 290 factory and it is a monster of a bike. The only issue I have had with it are that you can't upgrade all of the bearings to enduro bearings because some have a lip on them. If I was to suggest any improvement to the spec I would say upgrade at Leake the front brake caliper to the 4 pot xt version, however, nukeproof may have done this. Saying that, the 2pot xt brakes were fine out in Morzine/les gets this summer and I was destroying strava pb's and got 5 top 10 of all times in various locations. Great frames, great spec and great price. I will be keeping mine for at least 5 years and upgrade the headset and bb to Chris king when they wear out. Great work nukeproof. Fastest enduro bikes on the market.

This will also allow for lubrification of all the bearings at the top of your hubs as well ;)

If the forks work better after they have been upside down because of the 'oiel' then get Fox to make some of those inverted forks Gee Atherton was spotted with a few years ago.

4Cross Bike Checks: MTB Festival – Leibstadt, Switzerland
Faster acceleration on a smaller wheel, and a lot of races are won out of the gate. They are also a bit more responsive, stronger, lighter. For general off road riding 27.5 or 29 are better but on specific 4x tracks the 26 are faster
