Its an ad - I wasn't put off by a bit of movie magic and since it was the thing people largely complained about I bet that was one of the motivating factors not to have a car in this version.
on his planet, all things are possible
I wouldn't doubt there are some staged elements but the making of film for the last one showed him doing most everything for reals. I Just can't help thinking that the robot planet that Candide and Semenuk are from must be filled with trick-machines flying through the air.
Speaking for myself, I prefer the Codes for that exact reason of terrain. I've had a few versions of the Guides now on my personal bike and have tried the Codes on a few test bikes. The performance in snarly terrain is noticable and as I'm given to carrying a heavy load on my back I have appreciated the stopping power more when I have gone back to the Guide brakes - I would believe the Code-based hype.
There's an old saying in these parts about the trails finding you when you're ready.
well, it is technically just one bottle.
ankles out next?
It was on the list but knees.
I don't generally get to review many bikes because I am busy taking pictures of them but I had the Nomad for a week this summer while Pete was finalizing the Altitude review. I have to say that I was quite smitten with the MK4 from the start. I would agree that it doesn't climb as well as other bikes we had in the NSMB stable this year but it for my slow-diesel climbing style it suited me just fine. I don't have much to add to Pete's review of its downhill prowess but after every single ride I got to the bottom and stared at the bike with lust and found any number of reasons to keep her an extra day longer. I'm not saying that I was responsible for this long-term review being a little stretched but I had to reminded numerous times that Pete needed to get some time on it for his review. If I wasn't keen to try a 29r for an extended period this bike would be on my shortlist for 2018.
So aggressive in your old age.
Everyone has cameras on their list. Writing is on the wall for Cousin Dave.
Update: I won a $50MEC gift certificate which resulted in the very same YETI mug I asked for in my list and yes, I promptly filled said mug with beer. Thanks Santa!
re: item 1 on this list. This is a gift for me as well - i should really add it to my list.
