No doubt Keene's fast, but if you compare EWS results from 2015 to 2014, it's pretty simple. Slower in races, bad luck etc, pretty sure he's not too happy with it either. I've met Curtis once, spoke briefly with him at Winter Park. Really nice guy, down ... more »

Seriously doubt Curtis minds, he knows he didn't perform well this year and Graves can only help him, especially if 2016 might be his last chance at Specialized. Still don't understand if letting Beerten go was their choice, such a badass female rider ... more »

I want to believe that, and it would be great, but no where does it state that the frames are made in the UK. "We develop our own frames in house, refining and testing them on the trails of the Peak. They’re hand-made by carefully selected factories. Then they’re built to order here in Sheffield using tried & tested components".

Looks promising for sure. I 'love' how they try to make it sound like things are all done in the UK, but the frame is probably made in Taiwan which I really have no issue with. Nice try though.

Brand new folding bead tires might not seat easily right out of the package because they have folds in them beads still, so unpack and unfold and let them sit (lay) for a few days if not in a hurry. Or set them up with a tube first and let things stretch ... more »

Tucker wants in. He just isn't too into #thespiritofenduro - course cutting is his game. Tucker is his name.

That's such nonsense about Anneke's performance. She had a great year, especially at Whistler, if we use your logic then Curtis gets the boot over Anneke for sure...

To me it doesn't look quite right, something odd about the shape...

You should check out the Norrøna Fjora Lightweight Shorts. I'm 6'2" and most longer shorts, despite claiming they are 'long', are always a bit short on me. I've tried all kinds of brands and the Norrøna's are awesome. Comes with plenty of waist adjustment, vents, etc. Only available through backcountry.com though. But worth trying. Not cheap though.
