  1. I do dislike Cyclo Cross.

    Born of the days before MTB, now we have technology to allow us to ride offroad efficently.

    MTB forever

  2. Ooooh, two >sharp-intake-of-breath< moments there… That's the nicest Felt I've seen in years and those RaceFace cranks are both beautiful (only surpassed in looks by XTR, I reckon) and cracking engineering. And Christmas is coming up…

  3. The DX2000 looks very much like my inton from 2011.
    Nothing wrong with that at all as it’s a good light, BUT things have moved on and it’s hefty lump of a thing.

  4. Already got that 2014 F5X, it looks even nicer in the flesh Rhayter! Very nice ride it is too…

    Monkeyboy, equally we now have motorised 2 wheelers for the road, making road bikes seem an irrelevant and efficient means of transport, likewise for MTBs. In fact, why not just go the whole hog and drive a car around a road route or a 4X4 around your MTB route – think of all that time and energy you’d save on a century! To quote NYC Bike Snob “AYHSMB”… 😉

  5. I like the look of those Mavic shoes.

  6. Yes bee utifal shoes ,see what I done there

  7. Race Face cranks…I don’t fancy shelling out £400 to advertise a clothes shop.

  8. “I do dislike Cyclo Cross.”
    Must admit the joys of Cross are lost on me too; bit like anal sex. Maybe I’m doing them wrong…

  9. Have you ever ridden a CX bike Monkeyb0y? They are a WAY more efficent bike than an MTB. The trade off of a mountain bike’s inefficency is a better capacity to handle more extreme terrain and more comfort on longer rides.

  10. “I do dislike Cyclo Cross.”
    Must admit the joys of Cross are lost on me too; bit like anal sex. Maybe I’m doing them wrong”
    From someone called Banjowhacker! you couldn’t make this stuff up!

  11. You offering lessons, Speshpaul?
    [smiley]

  12. £100 for a knitted top!

    Will sell kidney for that crank though

    Those daygo shoes are brighter in real life

  13. I don’t want to like those shoes, but I do

  14. I’ve got those shoes and have to say… they’re absolutely brilliant in just about every way!

  15. cx more efficient except on more extreme terrain…like rough offroad? Also check your science..larger low pressure tyre is more ‘efficient’ than smaller higher pressure tyre off road (within certain boundaries), that is where the off road is uneven or rough with obstacles…also depends on what you are defining efficiency in…rolling resistance, grip, shock absorption from the tyre etc…..personally I care not what anyone wants to ride but ‘my sport is better than your sport’ should be factually correct!

  16. suppose somone oughta say ‘its all bikes so its all good’ dont some of you lot just LIKE riding bikes? instead of getting all ‘my dogs blacker than yours’.about it.

  17. I ride CX bikes, I ride MTB’s. I love both. They both do different things.

    No one is trying to make you swap your MTB for a ‘Cross bike.

  18. MTB shoes in roadie colours .. bluegh!
