I ride the 2015 Giant Glory L and it is huuuuuge! In fact it oftens drags in the ground when attached to the gondola cabins here in Queenstown (taco'ed wheel because of that the other day).. I'm 6'2", but the front end is enormous, a 6'5" rider could ... more »

Torpedo 7 in Queenstown (used to be R&R). The guys are super nice, they're hilarious and they always have time for a chat. Good prices too

They also hook up loads of RedBull athletes. I remember seeing a picture of the parking space at the On Any Sunday premiere (where loads of RedBull athletes were invited) and it was just packed with KTM bikes

Spreading confusion. Which provides entertainment for whoever made this.

Semi-related(-ish) question: How come the 2015 Reigns are super easy to get compared the 2015 Glory's? Just walking in Queenstown, I see at least 10 new Reigns every day. They're everywhere. But I've seen only one Glory in the 2 weeks I've been here ... more »

Exactly, Neko's legs are humongous

Damn that was sone fine argumentation. Nothing to say there. I guess we'll just have to wait to see what happens.

Change the kit? He's already wearing TLD

He had a really frustrating year in 2013, but progressed well in 2014 (didn't he win the last BDS?), I feel like he could be getting a few top10's, maybe even a podium this year.

http://youtu.be/3sZzPkFUZyc This is a wonderful vid, I've watched it probably 50 times. I've done swimpacking (some call it hydrotouring) in Norway, and I guess it's pretty similar to bikepacking in that you have to be as comfortable as possible both ... more »

I had no idea that Bowman managed some of the athletes' social media pages.
I thought that was only something superstars and multi-millionaire footballers did

I think I can safely say that we will all be sleeping a little better at night knowing this

Maybe they should see if Michael Phelps swims faster in his jeans or in a skin suit too

Connor: it's a RS Boxxer RC

I'm pretty sure it's Luca Shaw in that picture on Instagram. Neko is way bigger than that. Also, his hat looks a lot like this Specialized hat I saw today.

Sure, would be awesome! I'm at the Nomads hostel for at least the next week

Landed in Hobbit country yesterday (after a 24h flight delay in Sydney), this place is wild. QTown bike park is so F-ing steep, it's nuts. I knew that helmet cams don't do the tracks justice, but I never would've imagined that it'd be so steep top to ... more »

Is it possible to have a bit more progressiveness on a coil fork? (with different oils, or varying volumes,...?) Thanks in advance, Fabrice

I'm going to Kiwiland too! I'll be arriving in Queenstown on saturday

Sooooo freaking excited
