Rachel Atherton Injured - Cairns DH World Champs 2017
Get well soon Rach. So you've had a shitty year, take some time out, have a holiday in the hot sun away from the bike and all the stresses. Come back next year fully charged and take it easy - you've got nothing to prove.

Scott's Cutaway Genius Frame - Eurobike 2017
This half if pretty light. The other half is always right.

Spank's Foam Filled Rim Promises Better Reliability and Feel - Crankworx Whistler 2017
I'm just a bit scheptical about letting my wheels do the sock absorbing in an uncontrolled manner when that's what my suspension is supposed to be doing in a controlled manner. You don't find this practice in any other wheeled sports. I'm all for a more predictable wheel build, and a predictable shock absorber. I'm not saying I'm right, but that's what I believe in my head to be the right way to go about it!

Orbea MX 20 - Upgraded

$280 GBP
My daughters custom MX20 is up for sale, I had it resprayed in much nicer colours than standard. Still looks like new. I'll let the photos do the talking but heres the spec. Orbea MX20 frame. Orbea alloy Stem and Seatpost Carbon Handlebars Dia Compe levers with Shimano cable disc calipers (much better modulation and powerful enough for kids) SLX hubs and Halo BMX racing rims. XT front shifter and 10-36 cassette with Zee clutch rear mech, 10 speed Sinz 130mm lightweight kids cranks Madison saddle (slightly worn) Capa suspensions forks with lighter weight spring (so they actually move!) Schwalbe Little Joe tyres, just the right weight and grip, with reflective logos for the dark! It's just under 9kg, so pretty much the same as an Islabike, only a much better spec. The rear hub is a shimano slx 135mm hub, to upgrade the hub to something half decent I had to go to a 135mm one, but the frame is designed for a 130mm hub, it's not a problem in the slightest but when installing the rear wheel you do have to insert one side and then pull the other chainstay to install it. It's easy- not a problem but you should know about it. The Orbea MX20 team disc model you can buy off the shelf uses cheap 130mm Chinese hubs and the rims are heavy which is why I went down this route.

Martin Söderström: Three Bike Parks, One Weekend - Video
Dear BMW. If you want us to buy your cars, build us one we can fit a few bikes inside without having to dismantle them. We don't need videos like above.

Ask Pinkbike: Mismatched Suspension Travel, and Quieting Chainslap
My Shimano rear mechs clutch is basically a glorified jubilee clip/hose clamp, tighten this little fella up and it stops the little axle going through it from rotating so easily.

2018 Specialized Epic - First Ride
On any other bike I'd agree with you but in this case the Epic is all about the Brain controlled Shock system, who's gonna buy into that bike and then swap that out? You'd just buy a Scott Scale or whatever instead :)
