Carbon Neutral Brand Pembree Launches UK Made R1V Flat Pedals
@justanotherusername: the eco ticket is an interesting one. I have just bought several hundred lockers at work. Made here in the UK by a UK company and made from steel (recycled) from Wales. Very small travel distance in terms of world travel, recycled, etc. Yet zero marketing on the environment. Just marketing about supporting other UK business. Its whats cool in the circles you mingle maybe? But its good the effort is made.

Photo Story: Sven Martin's Favourite Shots of Hans Rey
Hans no way Rey. When I think of iconic HR pics, the first thing that comes to mind is front covers of MBUK from the last half of the ‘90’s. It was always either him or one of the Martins hopping somewhere. Simpler times.

First Look: Orbea's New XC Race Hardtail - the Alma
Because they are way better longevity wise - in my experience anyway. I ride in an area of wet, sandy grit. I road ride in an area where highway maintenance is inspired by rock gardens. My 2016 full sus ridden twice a week at least has just crapped its first pressfit BB. A plastic shimano one I locktite’d in. My 2016/17? road bike went the same way recently as well. My hardtail has gone through 2 external XT ones in the last 12 months. I put it down to them going in perfectly versus potentially inaccurate threading of shells. I have always had to replace them regularly.

Mondraker Releases Grommy e-Balance MTBs
.....and illegal in the UK in the same way electric scooters are. This is a ‘mechanically propelled vehicle’ and therefore would need a license, insurance and an MOT as well as a proper motorcycle helmet. No differant to an old school mini moto. But I would so bomb round on it!!! :)

First Look: 2021 Flyer Uproc6 eMTB
Looked at the pic. Was sick in my mouth. Read the comments. Looked back at the pics. Was sick in my mouth. Looks are subjective but that fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. Hideous. Hideous thing. Pure nasty.

Rocky Mountain Announces 'Overtimepack' External Battery for their Powerplay eMTBs
Defo not for me however, I look with interest at the bike parks trying to open their doors again and of course in the UK - specifically Wales, most use mini buses. That is a difficult game to play at the mo. I wonder if will cause an increase in big travel ebikes as riders self shuttle? Time will tell.

Review: Nukeproof Mega 290c Factory
This is a good review. I especially like the maintenance section. I want to know if I can replace my own bearings etc. That is a totally overlooked thing especially for riders in wetter climates (all be it I live in the UK and its been positively arid for the last few months bar the lst 2 weeks). On a different note, I have spent the last couple of years laughing at the water bottle debate. This weekend I ordered a new bike. I had agonised over 3-4 narrowing it down and would keep going back to the Nukeproof Reactor (3rd place) especially when some came in stock. In the end it was the lack of water bottle space that killed that off. Most of my rides are 1-2 hours sans pack so a bottle is very important to me. I dont consider underslug as viable for dog/horse/cow/muddy sh!t reasons. Spending 3+k came down to water bottles! Damn.

Pinkbike Poll: What is Your MTB Capital of the World?
I love riding in Wales, especially south Wales. I dont travel far to get there but its as much about the vibe as the trails and you will never meet more chilled and friendly people as those from the other side of the (now free) bridge. Bizarrely, having spent a lot of my childhood in north Wales and still going there a lot riding and hiking, the same can not be said of the friendliness there. Its like an insult that you dare to speak English. I cant be arsed with it.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 13 - Are Bikes Too Regular Now?
@tempest3070: I must do a different version of mountain biking to you for the last 25+ years because I throughly enjoy it and enjoy looking at reviews too. I will always get to the top but have no interest in rushing. I enjoy the whole package. Its a hobby. If I want to suffer I go running. And no, I never strava an mtb ride because why?
