Ye gods! found myself wincing out loud at some of the points when Robbo very nearly went over the bars there (I KNOW my face would have become a shovel at said points!) ballsy and then some!

Video: Kona Launches New Aluminum Hei Hei Bikes
Kona used to be a "go too" brand for me (and 2nd hand still are!) you'd get the value, the bulletproof rep, and spot on build to boot. Buy any process, stinky and most of the rest of there range only a few years back, and you'd be well on your way to happy times on two wheels normally, this without your wallet taking too hard a beating after the purchase. I personally love the look of there new G2 process 153 CR/DL, but would, moreover could, I buy one? not fu*king happening, unless a lottery win comes my way! Seems things have taken a serious nose dive of late, more so on the price front, along with the rep and build issues, all of which are really sad to see happen to a brand that most of us knew had there act, well and truly together. Are they finding buying stock Alu/carbon costs to high or import/export taxes killing em? there has to be some reason for these problems. I VERY much hope Kona can sort themselves out, and get back to what they did so well, in the not so very distant past.

5 Men's Kits Tested - 2018 Summer Gear Guide
those fox Indicator pants, eek! did the designer just wake up from there kip on the sofa, took a look at what they were wearing at the time,and then have a light bulb moment? I mean I'd be better off slapping on a pair of old sweat pants and writing "fox" on them.

European Commission Announces Proposal For eMTBs to Require Third Party Insurance
Forgoing for the moment the issues of insurance if this passed as law, I especially don't like the idea of having to register ANY bike for ANY form of cycling full stop! as it smacks of "we want to know who you are, what you do, and when you do it, so we can make you pay to do it, and know where and when that occurs so you can pay for that too!" Were it to pass for E-bikes then I seriously doubt much time would go by till the idea of ALL bikes would rear it's ugly head, and pass too. Cycling in any form is pretty much the ONLY form of transport left on the planet that is still free, aside from actually buying the bike itself, you can do it once you've mastered the skill of riding at any age, and progress to lots of other forms of it however you like, whenever you like, without any law or registration preventing you from doing so at any point. Right now as the law stands, if you don't process the skills, or equipment to ride properly wherever you might be, and you not careful enough when riding, to then hit some poor sod that was minding there own, well, chances are your going to a claims court, to have the beejuz sued out of you, your going to take a seriously nasty hit to your bank balance, weather your insured or not, cos someone, somewhere wants paying, and not just the poor so and so you hit. If being required to insure and register your bike was to become law,(I'm unsure how you could do one without the other?) that would then open up the gates for your sorry ass to not only pay via fines, but be looking at the prospect of a prison sentence too, again irrespective of being insured or not, as you can then be found in a court to be "riding without due care and attention" or guilty of "dangerous riding" amongst many, many other new charges that would have to be drawn up for when a bicycle rider fk'ed up, all due to having a resister of bikes and there owners, as registering makes you then "liable". Methinks that might take a lot of the fun out of riding for a fair few folk in the EU, don't whoop to soon if your a brexit fan just yet either, as you can bet your house on the idea catching on all over the world if it happens there, unless you happen to have a very green pro eco friendly government in power, (that said, even they might go for it, as it would be making tax/income) not too many of those around right now. Most governments really LOVE the idea of making more money from any avenue they can find it, even more so here in the UK!

Leatt DBX 2.0 Trail Helmet - Review
A few more piccys of the helmet on the riders head wouldn't hurt, otherwise seems like a good review, I'll hold out for a review on the bell, and how effective it is at making bears not see me as a meal on wheels! not that I'm going to run into many around here, biggest furry thing around my way is a squirrel...terrifying when seen munching on nuts.
