Update: What's Going On With Shimano's New XTR Group?
I actually got excite about the Black crank.. Mmmmm stealth.. But no 165mm!! Why the hell not! FAIL SHIMANO. In fact FAIL to so may crank manufacturers for not putting out a good Enduro (not DH) strength 165mm crank. (I'm ignoring XTs because I'm a self confessed carbon/XTR whore)

First Ride: The New Canyon Strive
Hang on.. 165mm cranks? I thought SRAM only made 165 in their DH cranks?

British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
Unlikely to be Deer - more likely wild boar which I understand are very aggressive. I know hunters have carried .45 magnums as a backup if it charges.

British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
My dad used to live in France, and as an avid shooter he went to a couple of hunts. If his report is a reflection across France, it’s hardly surprising. Apparently in true french style, before hunting everyone meets up, has a friendly drink and then head out, hip flasks never too far away. Then it’s lunch, more wine, and then back out. By the end of the day if something rustled shoot! As I said, he went out twice I think and decided it was too dangerous. On another occasion whilst visiting him the local hunters newsletter arrived whilst I was there. I seem to recall that there had been something like 40 injuries so far that year as a result of “stray bullets” and a few fatalities. That same trip whilst driving along a main road I witnessed another car pulled over, with the driver aiming a rifle out through the passenger window towards a field. Apparently a regular occurrence! I could be wrong about this unfortunate incident, but it gives some insight into the hunting scene in France.
