Lock that Sh*t Up - July 10, 2020, 6:03 p.m.

You're absolutely right.

I should have been more specific, towards the "defeating" part of my original comment. He finds alternative means; double spanners, nut splitters, hydraulic cutters and Ramset gun, to break locks after his attempts at picking.

Remember guys, A chain is only as good as its lock, and a lock is only ever a deterrent.

Now not everyone has this guys skill-set or tools, but it goes to show how quick a lock can be picked/defeated.

His Ramset videos show just how quick (and relatively quiet) most locks can be defeated with something available from the hardware store.

"SRAM has Shimano licked right now on the shifter (not "shifting") game"

Which I interpret as Dave likes the SRAM shifter better, because the XTR shifter feels vague. But like the overall shifting of XTR betterer.

We mountain bikers are a vain bunch. Lol. Too many people value form over function.

These (especially the high top) interest the hell out of me. I love when companies take a gamble and think outside the box. They could have played it safe and made something that is just like everything else, instead they've taken more of a performance orientated approach to the design.

I'm quite confident that a lot of people will turn their noses up at these though.

Martin Maes and Dr. Clark Lewis Respond to UCI Ban - June 28, 2019, 7:07 p.m.

This article has a response from the emergency doctor in question.

In all reality I think the final onus falls on Martin and team to check, they had two weeks between the NZ Enduro and EWS Rotorua to check and apply for a TUE. If they had of, I feel that the TUE would have been granted and this whole thing avoided.

At the end of the day this is a hard lesson, and I do feel really bad for Maes in this instance.

Leatt 3DF 6.0 Knee Guards Reviewed - Oct. 6, 2018, 4:26 p.m.

I have ridden mine through a wet winter here in New Zealand I can say I have never had wet feet at the end of a ride. They don't look it, the toe box is a appears to be plastic/rubber mesh, but they shed water VERY well. 

When they get muddy I hose them down and they will be dry the next morning. My old 5.10's would take days to dry, so this is a revelation for me.

Goes to show. Age is just a number.
