Okay, it’s not the middle of the week anymore but noone’s perfect eh? This week we’ve got some special treats for you – we’ve dug around in the Singletrack catacombs and dug out a load of video what we made ourselves. This is the sort of stuff that would usually be just for our Premier users but we thought we’d give the rest of you a little taste of what you’re missing out on. If you’re wondering what the hell a Premier user is and why it’s worth being one, have a look HERE…
First up, you might remember our original Crash Converters video. Highlights include Craig ‘labrador’ Woodhouse’s massive nose wheelie and steadfast refusal to let go of the bars til the bitter end. Still brings a smile to the face.
Following on from that, we’ve just returned from a road trip to Finale Ligure in Italy where we’ve been riding all sorts of delightful techy tracks which involved a lot of falling off, so here’s a special Finale Crash Converters video, tentatively titled ‘Thrutchcore’. The full article will be in Issue 60 and the full video where we actually ride stuff like gods rather than just fall off like fools will be ready for all our Premier users soon.
Here’s a little something from our recent trip to Germany where we saw Cube Bike’s new 2011 range. They took us around the factory and Jon shot some video on the way, including Cube trying to break things in their test lab. Forks and bars bend a terrifying amount without snapping..
We also found this video, covered in dust and sticky bits, of Nial ‘son of Great Rock‘ Oxley at the Fort William World Cup earlier this year. Jon got tired and emotional on the Discovery Ale we were giving out to our subscribers and got Niall to take him on a tour of the pits with the FlipCam. Wonder which DH bike is the best and why? You’ll find out soon.
We’ve also got this bonus footage of Nial talking to Chris Porter of Mojo Suspension. Chris helps Nial understand which suspension design is best, how marketing works and the other important bits of the journey to being a man.
Normal service will be resumed next week…
