Seems odd that they removed the rock garden just for Loris

I absolutely love the photography work that @danhern, @svenmartinphoto, and @maddogboris do each and every week. I will certainly miss this part of my days the rest of the year. What is cool is their interviews that they do with the riders. Very insightful and fun. Keep up the...more

Amazing Pr strategy from yt this year. Well planned and implemented. Making good use of influencers. And this is no criticism, as I have 2 yt. As Long as value for money, I am in. And Sponsoring DH WC is essential.

I'd add that this was not really a pre-arranged interview and the questions weren't discussed or planned ahead of time. These were his genuine thoughts in real time, which speaks volumes of his depth of knowledge and passion for mtb racing. I would have loved to talk longer but he was already...more

Man...that was just the best interview. Trumpore covered almost all of the damn bases too. Martin hit on EVERYTHING!!! He basically answered everything I wanted to know.
I think he could make a lot more money in another avenue of life, but the way the MTB community treats him as a human being seems...more

One of THE sharpest, I've ever come across. Have learned, and continue to learn, so much valuable knowledge. Can safely say, he's made his impact on the industry. Thanks for all you've done, and continue to do Martin.

Sounds like a crash and he didn’t re-enter in the right spot.
How about Sam Dale showing up and laying one down!

What I don't get is why people have gotten so scared to learn something new. I thought a challenge was something good to make us think better. In the future, Ai will bike for us.

The gearbox engagement isn’t great, but paired with a high engagement hub it feels about the same as say a Hope hub on a normal bike. It’s not a deal breaker is what I’m saying...

Probably the best review I have read on the Taniwha and I'd agree with all points raised. Rowdy terrain is 100% required for this to shine and its best in a long climb, long downhill scenario. Its an absolute beast downhill but a little bit of a chore on flat...more

Apparently trigger shifting or electronic shifting is in the works but noone has provided an eta. I think it would be a good update. I don't hate the gripshift but would welcome good trigger shifting with open arms.

Really appreciate the thoroughness of this review and providing an alternative perspective to Mike Levy's somewhat dismissive opinion of the bike and gearboxes generally on PB.

I have seen some pretty great builds here in Rotorua and some are definitely...more

A trick when shifting upphill, is to backpedal just a bitt or time the shifting to when you have to stopp pedaling coz of pedalstrikes.. Or just give a harder halfstroke to gett extra momentum so you can stopp pedaling for the 0.1 sek it takes to shift smile

Yes! I use the harder half stroke trick all the time! Even on a bike with a normal drivetrain, your chain, chainring, and cassette will all last way longer if you use this trick on the regular rather then shifting under load
