    Interesting(ish) Sam Hill Pietermaritzburg Fact!

    Okay blatant nerdism here, but just looking at the recent results from South Africa and its interesting to note for those of you who may be writing Hill off again this year that he was actually closer to winning this years event than any of the previous rounds held in South Africa. Okay he...

    Pietermaritzburg - 2012 WC DH#1

    Not so much 'trying'. Brendan used to be on clips full time back in the day. More 'getting reaquainted'.

    2012 Demo With Double Barrell - Thoughts?

    Just wondering if anyone's had any time on the new demos that come with the cane creek? Just wondering how well it works with the spesh suspension and any comparisons with the same bike using a vivid? Ive heard the double barrel works best with the more linear suspension designs so just...

    So.. Aaron Gwin and the dh/mx crossover..

    Firstly that the top level amateur thing came from an interview with Gwin himself in dirtmag a few years back. And secondly, only a few people seem to have got that I am NOT questioning whether MX helps in DH, or whether Gwins success is down to him racing MX previously, just interested to...

    So.. Aaron Gwin and the dh/mx crossover..

    And just to be clear I'm not wondering whether MX helps in DH, I think the answer to that is pretty clear. More whether if another 10 average (in relative terms!) MXers crossed over into DH they would do the same as Gwin. The more I think about it the more I think that they wouldnt.

    So.. Aaron Gwin and the dh/mx crossover..

    But that was my point with Palmer, if what youre saying is true, then Palmer should've cleaned up in DH aswell, and thats what I felt was interesting, as I said in the original post because at first I just felt like a guy who hadnt done anything special in MX doing what he's done in DH was kinda...

    So.. Aaron Gwin and the dh/mx crossover..

    Cheers for the input. I think the definition of dumb is reading a topic you think is dumb and then posting on it.

    So.. Aaron Gwin and the dh/mx crossover..

    Okay so here's something I've been thinking about this year as the world cup season unfolded.. Aaron Gwin quits mx turns up to his first world cup race 3 years ago and gets in the top ten straight off the bat, fast forward to this year and he has pretty much made a mockery of the rest of the...

    Izimu Riders?

    I had an 08, excellent bike in many ways. Build quality was second to none in my opinion. I had the same issue with wallowing, I had the shock tuned by TF as apparently he said this was a common trait with the 08 dhx, anyways the shock was reshimmed and in terms of suspension the thing ripped...

    2008 morewood izimu

    I have an 08, set in the slackest position with a 300 spring (I should really run a 350) and Ive had no issues with rubbing at all? And Ive bottomed the thing out regularly so perhaps its a problem that has been sorted, I know mine was one of the last batches of 08s to be made. On a side...
