Peaty certainly won worlds and had at least a couple of world cup wins as a dad!

Looks sharp! It's a deep hole to go down, though. I guess when your kit is so portable like that, it's easy just to sling everything in? I'd be scared to leave too nice a tool kit in the car in an isolated car park in case it got nicked! 😬 I've kinda ... more »

Will the shifting actually be any quicker? The road DI2 is slower to shift over 3-4 gears than a conventional cable setup.

For what it's worth, I've been doing some short XC loops on a DJ bike, running a 38 x 12 - 23. I have to stand up when I'm climbing (well, pretty much all the time actually, lol). I ride in south east England, so we've got a few little hills but nothing

I have commuter bike envy, now. Mine does what it's supposed to, though - Marin Hamilton 29er, doubles up as my occasional xc bike.

For me it's all about the photography and Vital hits the nail on the head - the more the better, in my opinion. The audio with the images is a nice touch too. I subscribe to Dirt (never read a copy of Decline; maybe I should?) and the first articles ... more »

Here's a question for you guys.. How do you stay creative with your shots? I sometimes feel like I'm taking the same old shots just in a different location and I can get a bit frustrated sometimes. Any tips to get inspired? BTW, I'm liking K.Shiz's idea

Reply to 2011 UCI World Cup Filming Rules 2/18/2011 1:20 PM

The UCI really are a joke, aren't they? I think the entire MTB community should boycott the World Cup and we should start our own governing body that actually gives a damn about MTB (and cycling, for that matter).

I try and figure out what all the outcomes will be and think through all the get-off options so I'm kinda prepared for them if something does go wrong. When it comes to actually riding it - whether it's dirtjumps, techy bit of trail or whatever - I try ... more »

Front Minions on both wheels cuz Sam Hill does it. And also because the fronts don't shred up like the rears do. For pressures I do the squeeze test - front one gives a bit more than the rear. Bit less air for when it's muddy. Boom!
