    Hannah for Rampage! Or how about the Mega?

    I’m sorry, but Danglemug? “Sorry, I can’t make tonight’s ride. I’ve got Danglemug.” Nasty.

    How big is that osprey bag – yes I know 90l but I don’t know how big that actually is and equally it could be could be 1000x1000x900mm or 10x10000x900mm

    DOWN-COUNTRY. What a time to be alive.

    Go on, say that again…

    1000x1000x900mm or 10x10000x900mm

    I think that would be a significantly larger capacity bag than 90l…

    1x1x0.9m is 0.9m^3 is 90l, unless my maths is suffering as much as the rest of me which is distinctly possible of course.

    Edit: yes it is. Should be 0.09m^3 so that would be a 900l bag

    “Top secret bike”

    A chunky DHR II on the rear and just under 23kg, this sounds like a latest full-fat eMTB from one of the big brands. Dimples on the saddle don’t give too much away.

    Going to take a wild guess at an Orbea. They’ve recently added alloy versions of the Rise without adding much in the way of weight over the carbon version. Would make sense that they’d try to do the same on the burlier Wild FS.

    Dimensions (CM): 80H 44W 35D

    Or, as I like to think of it, nearly the volume of three OMM Classic 32s, but at less than three times the price of a OMM Classic 32 AND you don’t need three sets of shoulders to carry it. So it sounds very good.

    Thank you Tom – I did nosey at osprey’s site but it seemed to be missing from what I could see

    Have these people never punctured on hillsides desolate?

    Careful there, Morrissey might just give you a cease and desist clickbait order! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-60140954

    I’d say that’s about half the weight my Grifter was. I loved that bike though!

    I haven’t seen a website or magazine send someone out to compete/report on the Megavalanche since Dirt years ago. I think a new generation of riders need to be introduced to the race. A good in-depth report from an journalist competing in it. Would be nice to see how it’s changed in the last 10-15 years with all the advances in bikes.

    Maybe a ‘downcountry’ vs enduro bike comparison seeing as back in 2007ish there was a split between DH bikes and XC bikes
