20 Bikes - Core Bike Show 2018
Somehow agree.... but I just broke the rear wheel (26/142) of my Rune, used an old one (26/135) while waiting for the new wheel (27.5/150) to arrive... all with dropout changes. Feels pretty 2018 for me.

Banshee Spitfire - Review
The best thing about those frames is their durability... I bought a Rune V2 in early 2014. It has seen many places in Europe and Canada, has been taken apart and modified for trailriding or Bikepark numerous times, went to the plane quite often, has been hosed down like you shouldn’t do... I still cant believe that there is no creak, no problems no nothing so far! It just works, all the time, besides being a great ride.

Video: All I Want - Short Film
I’ve been riding in Israel last year.... miss it a lot! Traveling advice: clip your bike shoes to the pedals when transporting your bike. Or better come with flat-pedals. Having to explain these "metal-plates" in my shoes at the crazy airport security was a weird and very time-consuming experience ;)

Eurobike 2013 - Day One at the Outdoor Expo
I have to defend the spandex-boys!! Even though it’s not aesthetically pleasing.... Recently, on a trip through Germany I came through Kassel, where those guys are running a bikeshop. My Specialized dropper post had just blown to pieces. I found their shop, and they even had a Specialized representative just visiting them. The Specialized guy saw my problem and was about to convince me that I had to send in the seatpost, having it checked out and so on. So those guys just took a new post out of another model, gave it to me. They gave the broken post to the Specialized guy, telling him: "look at that young man, he needs to RIDE! deal with that seatpost for yourself". So - in my opinion they are the only guys allowed to wear those outfits :)
