Tested : One up Components Chain Guide and Oval Ring

Tested : One up Components Chain Guide and Oval Ring

When lathered with the vilest of English crap, did the combo work seamlessly? ISG05 Chain Guide The arrival of single ring 1×11 setups meant that clean lines had arrived and chain guide noise was gone forever, at least that’s what I thought. The narrow-wide ring on my SRAM X01 setup served me well and for about 6 months, the chain never came off. So for me, I was sold. Until one ride, after compressing into a berm then trying to […]

Just Landed.

Descent-World “Slayer” T shirts. Printed on high quality , 100% cotton American Apparel T shirts Designed by artist Lois Vero, these are the first design in a three series collab. We get our inspiration from lots of different places and the T shirts will be varied but Slayer played an obvious role here.

Retro Bike Porn: John Lawlor’s Stumpjumper

Retro Bike Porn: John Lawlor’s Stumpjumper

With new standards appearing almost daily, and technology becoming a triumph over rider skill base, we thought it would be great to feature some stunning retro bikes. We noticed John’s bike on Instagram, and anything the ” eyeball ” posts is worth looking at. For those that don’t know, John has been the Specialized videographer for a few years now, but before that, and like many of the media crew, he was one of Ireland’s top DH riders with a […]

Bike Check : Ginge’s SPS Santa Cruz V10

Bike Check : Ginge’s SPS Santa Cruz V10

So who is Ginge? Luke Cockburn is a 19 year-old, Expert Category DH racer from Sunderland in the North East of England. Despite having only been on the DH scene for the last 2 seasons, he has made his impact already with a stream of podiums in the British Downhill Series last year and probably sends more hucks per run than any other rider on the circuit ( average at 6 per minute / 18 per race ). Definitely a […]

Bike Check: Vertigo Custom Kid’s Build

Bike Check: Vertigo Custom Kid’s Build

Following up the piece on Ted and his hard earnt shred-skills, I popped down to Vertigo for a closer inspection of the creation and some info on the bits and bobs. The custom kids bike in all it’s neon glory! There are only 8 parts in the build that came stock out of the box, the majority is a hodgepodge mix of custom bits and size-appropriate aftermarket add-ons. Tim reveled in the process of chopping, grinding, and tapping the cranks […]

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 […]

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 […]
