iXS European Cup Rd3 Innerleithen

iXS European Cup Rd3 Innerleithen

A week of hard graft and sunshine to get the the track finished and prepped for the race and you get 2 days of torrential rain before a damp race day. Must be summer-time up here in Scotland then ehh, and to cap all that off the midges were out in force – not as bad as up north but still biting like they’d been starved. The track for this race was pretty much as the one used 2 yrs […]

Fox D.O.S.S Seatpost

Fox D.O.S.S Seatpost

CTD sounds like something I was told I wouldn’t catch off a toilet seat back in Biology at school but today it stands for “Climb, Trail & Descend”, Fox’s newest anagram for its latest incarnation of products to hit bike stores for 2013..well actually right now to be exact. Simplifying the whole suspension setup puzzle for the masses of riders who are now headed for the hills with 3 options and with some fine-tuning, its aim is to reduce any […]

Tweedlove: POC King and Queen of the Hill Enduro

Tweedlove: POC King and Queen of the Hill Enduro

It was a last minute decision for me to take the plunge and enter the POC King of the Hill Enduro at Glentress. Being one of the main opening events of the now annual Tweedlove festival which sees all things 2 wheeled take to the streets and hills surrounding the Innerleithen and Peebles area for 10 days at the end of May. The idea of an All Mountain Enduro, with timed climbs, didn’t really sit well with me, I mean […]

SDA RD2 Glencoe High and Dry!

SDA RD2 Glencoe High and Dry!

SDA round 2 Glencoe  High and Dry! While the Forecaster’s were (rightly) predicting a sunny weekend for the second round of the SDA series at Glencoe, “No chance!” I said, thinking I knew better- “Waterproofs-Check. Spike tyres-Check. Mudguards-Check. Suntan Lotion?-Nah, don’t think so!”- Oh how wrong I could be.  Previous SDA races held at Glencoe haven’t been lucky with the weather to say the least and this was probably part of the reason for the particularly low turnout as well […]

Halo BDS Rd2 Fort William

Halo BDS Rd2 Fort William

The second round of the Halo British Downhill Series came north to Fort William last weekend, and as early as Thursday there was a weather warning for storm force weather on Sunday. This would’ve been the day I’d made plans to go and cover the race but late Friday decided to head up on the Saturday as the weather was good and the plans at the race were changing as quick as the weather. Here’s a quote from Halo BDS […]

Mountainbikebitz.com Demo Day

Just had a wee flyer pop up into my inbox…seems like the guys from Decade Europe are showing their wares down in deepest Devonshire. Haldon Forest near Exeter to be exact . Heck I’d go just for the free food! Expect to see loads of Decade’s produce on show. You can also out the trails here

SDA 2012 Round 1- Innerleithen

SDA 2012 Round 1- Innerleithen

Downhill is dead! Long live Downhill! Some people I have talked to recently (including industry insiders) have reckoned that Downhill is dead in favour of Enduro-type events. Whilst it’s true that Enduro has been increasing greatly in popularity, it was also true that the numbers certainly came out in force for the first SDA of the year at Innerleithen. Judging by the number of new Scalps on the hill, I am pretty sure that Nukeproof don’t think that DH is […]

Scottish Bike Show Part 2

Scottish Bike Show Part 2

Right peeps, what better way to banish those back-to-work/school blues than to have a wee skive and check out some more goodies from the Scottish Bike Show last weekend? First off, the Magik Stem from MSC bikes. “What’s magic about a stem?” I hear you ask. Well, this stem doesn’t have any knee-unfriendly pinch bolts on the steerer. What it does have, and a classic why-didn’t-someone-think-of-that-before is an internal wedge (red) that clamps the steerer tube when you tighten up […]

Scottish Bike Show Part 1

Scottish Bike Show Part 1

Having previously been to Eurobike I was a bit sceptical of what a bike show at the SECC would offer. Needless to say my scepticism was unfounded as it turns out it was a braw wee affair. It truly has something for all types of cyclists and although nothing like the massive scale of Eurobike it has it’s fair share of interesting new bits and pieces to offer. I will concentrate on the new gravity bikes and gear. First off, […]
