Specialized Update Enduro for 2018 - First Look - Crankworx Whistler 2017
Couldn't agree more I have the 2014 E29, according to the new trend I've been suffering unnecessarily. I'm 6ft in five tens and ride a medium with a reach (according to geometry charts) of 425mm - it feels perfect to me but you read this stuff and question your whole biking existence! My real world experience though has just been updated and confirmed- this week I'm lucky enough to be in Madeira riding with Freeride Madeira on some of the EWS stages, due to problems in transit my bike took a hit to the brake lever and rear mech, fortunately Freeride Madeira could supply a hire bike, another enduro, the 2017 650b comp, but they insisted, given my height I should by in a large size, as they know the trails and it's a different bike in wheel size I was happy to follow their advice. Sadly, throughout the ride I felt like I was 12 years old and riding my dads bike...it was just too long, on the steep rocky, tight corners I was struggling to hold on, added to which the often heard complaint that the BB is too high saw me regularly pedalstriking rocks, something I rarely do, as a result my confidence suffered and as result was glad when the ride ended. These constant updates in geometry and standards seem to me to aimed a very small % of riders, in fact Jared Graves, or chasing favourable reviews, it wasn't long ago the E29 was hoovering up accolades now it has so many issues the 2017 only lasted a year. As for boost, a clever trick, if I want a new frame, I now need new wheels and a new crank or clutter the bike I was happy with with the necessary adapters. The bike industry in my view just plays on insecurities and offers fixes.@WAKIdesigns:

Steve Peat Syndicate at the 'Ard Rock Enduro - Video
A great weekend. My only regret is that couldn't ride the course the way I wanted to through injury, rode cautiously all the way round. Nontheless the set up is amazing, credit to all the volunteers, organisers the locals for not just putting up with intrusion from 100s of mtbrs, but being so welcoming. Can't wait to try again next year. Awesome edit, top result.

Movies For Your Monday
The next time there's a poll 'best development in MTB?' If there was one I'd ✅ the box PINKBIKE. Free, easy to access content that's always inspiring, informative, challenging and regularly updated. With all the other sites that are nearly as good, I don't think we realise how lucky we are.

Building a Bike Trail - Video
Lots of negativity and naivety on here (as usual). Great work by Bike tracks AGAIN. To think that Bike Tracks harvested, or felled on such a scale before starting work typifies the lack of knowledge expressed by armchair builders or those who like to build shonky trails in their local woods. Do your research. A key aspect of growing mountain biking from cash strapped niche sport is progression and that starts with fun blue trails for kds. If its not for you make use of the bike parks. But get behind projects such as these.
