Endura Whyte Vallelujah Race.

Just 2 years ago this view wasn’t possible as you were deep in the Cadmuir forest, tree felling has opened up a nice view but offers no shelter to the weather. @linton_photo Words and Photography: Ian Linton | Credit: @linton_photo | Additional Photography JWDTphotography It seemed such a shame that the nice dry weather the valley had been bathed in for the last fortnight hadn’t dragged itself over the Easter weekend. I think seeing as the Met Office now name […]

Stan’s New Race Sealant – First Impressions..

Stan’s New Race Sealant – First Impressions..

Words and photo’s: Ian Linton Stans No Tubes sealant has been around for quite a few years now – Stan Koziatek devised the original NoTubes sealing system back in 2001, the same system that today has become the preferred tubeless conversion system used around the world. Originally known as the secret weapon of the Elite mountain bike racer, 15yrs on and Stans sealant is the choice of most riders worldwide. First impressions are good as I’ve not had a puncture, […]

Tested: Endura “Deluge Glove”

Tested: Endura “Deluge Glove”

Words: Ian Linton. We have a few of Endura’s waterproof and winter products on long term testing at the moment. The Deluge gloves are the first up with shorts, socks and jacket to follow up over the next few weeks. I’ve never had proper winter gloves for riding and maybe it’s an age thing – but I’m tired of getting numb fingers on winter rides. I was bit worried they’d be big and bulky and you’d end up with no […]

Gary Forrest – Fightback to fitness

Gary Forrest – Fightback to fitness

Shop local. Eat local. Local is all the rage. So for us, here at Descent-World, it makes sense to feature local talent. The thing about this rider though, is that he goes beyond local talent, and into the realms of international talent. It’s been a few years since Gary Forrest was a regular on the pages of Descent-World. We thought it was about time we caught up with Ibis team pilot Gary Forrest – who is without a doubt one […]

Orange Bikes Four Life….

Orange Bikes Four Life….

Choose good friends, go places, ride your bike and have fun. Life can pass you by. Sure, earning a living is important but so is living itself. Me ma’ always used to say you don’t need good reason. Eat when you’re hungry. Sleep when you’re tired. Cry when you’re sad and smile when you’re happy. The best reason is no reason. Take two small travel trail machines, one van, some friends and see how far a van and some legs […]

Maxxis “Rubber Side Down” Season 2, Craig Evans

Snow doesn’t stop you riding..

Snow doesn’t stop you riding..

It seems that winter had decided to actually make an appearance – albeit not in the biblical sense that the met office issued, but hey ho when do they ever get it right. One thing I do like is a bit of a hikeabike up into the snow line as there’s one thing guaranteed is that the views around here in the Tweed valley are stunning. I was going write this piece along the lines of tips and tricks to […]
