Another week nearly over and with the sound of a whole weekend’s worth of riding just around the corner it’s that time again…

Canyon Nerve AL 6.0

We’ve got some Nerve

Described as a “full suspension tourer” on their website, we reckon the Nerve AL 6.0 is a lot of bike for the money for general razzing about on trails.

A Rockshox Reba and Fox Float CTD take care of suspension duties while a mix of Shimano XT, SLX and Deore take care of the 3×10 drivetrain.


Price: £1199.00

From: Canyon

Rockshox RS-1

Definitely the right way up
Definitely the right way up

Dave’s been waiting very patiently for a set of RS1’s to turn up to see how they handle a bit of Calderdale filth after riding them in the Moab desert. These are the 120mm travel version and will be seeing some trail riding duty as he’s convinced they’re more than just an XC fork.

Price: £1415.00

Roam 50 with Predictive Steering hub

Wheely good?

    That Nerve looks broken.

    What the hell is a ‘Predictive Steering’ hub?

    Shame X1 is still too expensive, and not compatable with a standard freehub….

    £1450 for a set of 120mm forks? I’m loaded and i’m still “out”….. 😉

    For some uppy/downy/slidey tubes!?!? I’ll wait 2 or 3 years and then get the realistically priced version. 😉

    I have to agree with maxtorque – he’s loaded and i’m out at that price!

    Did who ever rode that Canyon into a wall hurt themselves?

    I doubt any frame repairer is gonna get rid of that kink….

    Predictive Steering hub? WTF??? Predictive text is bad enough!

    Thats £12 per mm of travel – sounds quite reasonable when you put it like that.

    Is it my imagination or have SRAM not used the Avid moniker on those brakes?

    Perhaps it’s a sign that things are improving and they want to distance themselves from it?

    Like the look of those wide rim American Classic wheels.

    The price of those forks is ridiculous, especially as i think you actually have to buy the front specific wheel too. Impossible to justify
