  1. Is that crazy perspective or is the parmesan as large as an adult male?

  2. You are going to beed to make a HUGE bolognaise to put all that cheese on.

  3. Yes it is that big. It’s also wedge shaped so we are about to take it outside and do some jumps offarit innit!
    🙂

  4. Chaps, Is the FTM review in the next issue?? it get rave reviews in the US press but not a peep in the uk mags! Thanks!

  5. Oooooo, peaks, could do with one of those please since mine came off in my hand….and if you could throw in one of those t-shirts too please … lovely

  6. It’s not in the very next issue. It’ll probably be in issue 50 (out June 11th).

  7. 2kg of parmasan? that’s more cool than anything ive ever seen. is it reggiano? mmmm….

    thumbs up for the alpkit jeans. bought a pair at the outdoor show. nice folk they are.

    liking the yellow t with the purple pedal on. where can getz???

  8. Any race reports from Kidland DH?

    Cool video here http://vimeo.com/4223239

  9. Big Earl tubeless on Crossmax – excellent choice

  10. could speccy not have put more than one hose guide thingy on the swingarm for the brain?
    ziptied out the factory? Boo!

    ….that prophet gives me the horn

  11. cool thanks Ben !

  12. Any review coming soon for the Mobi washer? Looking at one of these myself….

  13. Alpkit jeans – yay! Only straightleg boo! Bootcut please!

  14. Big Earls and Mavic SX, that was my idea that…

  15. I want the giant grips

  16. Should be a race report from the Kidland DH on the site soon. It was a brilliant event, the vid is giving me the shivers again.

  17. Isn’t that Titus the new Spec Epic?

  18. Apart from the colour, is there any appreciable difference between the Titus and the Spec? My choice would be the Titus, just because I hate the way Spec buy other peoples patents then charge for the use, despite never doing any development work themselves. Seems like a very American thing. Plus I do really like Titus’ Exogrid frames. Mmmmmm, much salty goodness.

  19. I neeeeeeed some parmegianno to heal my barbed wire fence wounds. Got any spare, like? I only ask since you don’t have any brakes/skills courses on offer 😉

  20. If that Titus rides anywhere near as good as the Super Moto I’ll be having one next year. That’s got to be the nicest looking Titus I’ve seen.

  21. mmm, yes the Titus & the Spec do look rather similar.
    More importantly, what issue will have the results of the cheese test?

  22. Something has arrived from Kona that will make Matthew very excited indeed.

    I’m having to pop in the officr today just to have a look! ;]

  23. hmmm, where did you get the Titus FTM from ? did you buy just the frame and build it up yerselves…. i wanted a motolite, but i cant find one.

  24. The Titus FTM is brand new into the country – which is why you’ve not seen it in any other magazines yet. I hope they saved me some cheese…
