Minaar's comment's typical of his whining this season...... Getting as bad as Lopes for moaning and b*tching like a schoolgirl. Remember seeing Tracey Moseley schooling him and Lopes on Twitter earlier this year. Not a cool way for a pro athlete to behave.
Back on topic though, I love that video - he's properly ragging that BFE, and I know several very fast hardtail riders who have that kind of aggro, loose style - something like a BFE or a Slackline lends itself well. I think we'll see things becoming more sensible soon as riders select the wheelsize that suits their size, build and riding style best, rather than on the back of what they're told is the best.
