    norcosam, is the CCDB a good match for the Deville? I have a Deville waiting to go on a Transition Covert and am thinking about future shock options.

    Nice photos mugtree, wouldnt like to be on the argon, I did snowdon on my 100mm jump hardtail and figured that I'd never do it again on a hardtail.

    Yeah ha, go the White Kiwi, very rare indeed is this bird, almost as rare as kiwis in general

    Good seeing our little island getting some media attention that is not related to earthquakes or mining disasters...

    Micoz, welly's - good looking pictures, need one of the structure being ridden...

    Just come back from a great Saturday morning ride on the AM 29er (did I tell you I love this bike )
