Innerleithen Winter DH Enduro

Innerleithen MTB riders along with I-Cycles kicked of the winter racing here at Innerleithen with an Enduro DH event which went down a storm with the entrants. Many riders commenting that it was the best event they had competed in, and to cap that the best run event.  Praise indeed but the format was relaxed and friendly the tracks were a mix of everything the hill at Inners can throw at you without being to extreme. Riders set out early […]

661 Gravity Enduro Series Launched

Downhill is still my first love when it comes to mountain bikes, and it’s still what keeps me most interested as a fan, but fact is, it’s not what I enjoy doing myself when I am out riding, I still ride for the buzz on the downs, but I’d rather get myself to the top than rely on tractors and trailers these days. I know I’m not alone, and clearly so do the trio behind the new 661 Gravity Enduro […]

Safe As Part 2- Pragmasis Security Products

A while back we tested the Asgard bike store, perfect for keeping your pride and joy safe while not cluttering up your house or flat. Once in there how do you best keep them locked up? Chances are that if your bikes warrant a £500 shed then they are going to warrant some serious locks to keep them in there, initially our hopes had been to run a full on test on a range of locks. It soon became obvious […]

A word from Lewis Buchanan

It turned out to be a freezing cold morning for this my first video interview, but hey we live in Scotland and it’s November and were hardy folk up here. Lewis agreed to this a while back – way before he was killing it out in Canada getting that 2nd place behind Gee Atherton. After that he was on a high for the last WC round in Windham where he got a top 20 finish. There he moved on to […]

Fab’s Schoolin’

I travelled down to the Fabien Barel Training Skool at Cwmcarn in South Wales organised by Mojo Suspension last weekend. I knew Fabien by reputation – a guy who does nothing by accident. I thought I might learn something, although I have been riding for a while now and like to think I have thought things through. Bar position, brake levers, bike geometry, pedals, saddle height, suspension set up, etc are all run for reason. Day 1 (Friday) saw 12 […]

Northern Championships Kielder Forest

Using a black graded xc trail for a downhill race was not our first choice, but I think most would agree it turned out well. Yes it was not the most technical of tracks but it did give a good sense of speed and to ride an easy track fast will always be hard. The track started with a pedal around a bermed right then left before squashing a jump onto the shoot down to the fire road. Pedal along […]

Interview with Danny MacAskill: Way Back Home

In the lead up to the release of his new film, Way Back Home, Danny MacAskill talks about the journey that his life has taken over the past year. From what started as a bit of fun, filming with his friend Dave Sowerby, to managing the success of starring in a 20 million view YouTube hit, Danny now starts a new challenge with Red Bull as he heads back home from Edinburgh to Skye with some incredible experiences along the […]

Day 3 O’Neal/Reverse Sneak Peek

Day 3 – Are you Sitting Comfortably? So our last day of products from Fli Distribution brings us some Solid kit from Reverse in the shape of the Reverse Comp SeatPost, Fort Will Saddle and a nice pair of O’Neal Shorts. O’Neal Generator Shorts. Seems importers and distributors do have a sense of humour, Fli sent these in a hilariously comedy 30” Waist size, short of Jon_e (no pun intended) I know nobody who could squeeze in to a 30 […]
