Apologies kids, my choice of the word “serpentine” was ridiculous! I think I just meant steep, techy, and zig-zag(gy). Though I’m a few Black Sheep to the wind right now so who knows.
Is pussywillow an ex pinkbike grom? Chats like it

Aye up buddie, you need to look above for what the word serp rider is, you’ve got it wrong there mate, a serp track is the opposite of techy I keep telling you! 😆Posted 4 years agoduirMember
The reason that the world famous “American” 😀 mountain biker Greg Minaar is having a go at 26″ is because he is about ready to retire from DH and join the rest of the former DH stars on the Enduro circuit. The bike Santa Cruz will pay him to ride and promote will be the Bronson a re-packaged Blur LT with 27.5 wheels.
Don’t worry, the greedy con merchants that seem to run most big bike companies will re-package their bikes as 26″ the new standard in a few years.Posted 4 years agoandyrmMember
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.Posted 4 years agoduirMember
Here here! Minaar is well known for his super smooth style but that’s on a 10″ travel V10. I think Gregory is selling that rider short with his comments. He looks out of shape at points because that’s what it looks like when a really good rider rides a bit beyond what the bike is capable of. Lot’s more body English required on a hardtail.Posted 4 years agokimbersSubscriber
