    I hadn't watched Ali's first video because I wasn't sure what it'd be like, but just checked
    out that second one.As someone who's ridden with Ali quite a bit, and having lived with him
    too, it's cool ...

    Yup, that's how it works. Wholesale price give or take a bit.That's what I was thinking, yeah.
    Interesting that companies still go down the "The industry's super slow at the moment, sales

    Is all that being hooked up through their US distros, I'm assuming?

    That's not strictly speaking true. Elite riders can run anything they can get for free and
    kill. That was probably the case for Andrei using those Kenda tyres, and I suspect in the case
    of Gilles and ...

    You've ridden that place? Mind. Blown. I didn't even realise you'd been over here, although
    that does kind of ring a bell now... Rode Lee Quarry today, went from sun to a bit of rain to
    snow to sun to...

    I want to ride the place in all the tarty vidsWhich one are you thinking of? I'm actually
    heading to Lee Quarry today which has been in quite a few of our videos (super sharp, angled
    rock - it was in ...

    You get quite a few places like that on the coast here too where they need sea defences. I
    pretty much grew up riding shit square-edged walls in my local town, or getting taken to this
    sea-side town w...

    Those last couple of photos look exactly like a natural spot not too far from where I used to
    live in Cardiff - they were right between Cardiff and Porthcawl (the place that most of the
    Martins videos...

    A Hex is the Inspired Hex, a 26" wheeled street trials bike. Pogoing is usually referring to
    long, low, seatless bikes with mega rolled forward bars which tend to mean the rider spends
    most of their t...

    From a 2-finger Magura to a 4-finger Magura there's a 16% increase in power (worked out on the
    '05 lever, at least), so there's a reasonable difference there. Obviously that doesn't mean
    much if you'v...

Saw your grip post on uk. I had the half nelson race face grips they are ok but open end.
The new Gwin grips are super thin and closed end with alloy cap covered in plastic, single collar. I would recommend these minus the bullshit pricing. 45 CAD

I have used those long thin grips from toyo about 10 years ago only slide on rubber grip i would use.

I now use racquet ball tape but you might rip this stuff with all your bmx shenanigans. I have small hands so only use thin grips.

Something in common, interesting
