Time is money !

I ride my bike about 4 times a week, which is great but then I have to clean the bloody thing. Some bike geeks love this part of the job but not me. I'm a massive fan of Seb Kemp's article 'I hate bikes'. That's how I feel; it's mountain biking I love and the bike is just the vehicle that enables me to enjoy it.

Back Packs - How hard can it be?

I had a Dakine Nomad for a long time and I loved that bag. I know I shouldn't, but I get really sentimental about well trusted kit. They hold a lot of memories for me, a bit like an old friend. When it finally gave up the ghost (the zip broke) I thought "What the bloody hell am I going to do now?". I think on the whole, rucksacs are over-engineered. They don't generally fail and you don't need a million pockets. I just want something that does the job with easy access and looks good. We all know it, if you're buying a newie, it's got to look the part. You have to find the bag that really defines your riding (ha ha ha ha). EVOC's cool, I'm cool, I'm into freeride and I ride trails...win.
