    The youtube and google video thread (MTB and non-MTB vids)

    Love watching people who are so confident in their bikes and their skills - I would have headed straight over the top of the first berm and disappeared down the side of the hill

    Canada Trip - BC and QC

    I got to ride Bromont when I went to Montreal for work. Such a well set up Mountain. Got in trouble when the lead drafter told the boss he had broken his back at Bromont and probably not the best plan for me the ride there. Wound up at Mont Tremblant doing cross country the next weekend.

    Brilliant Guardian piece..

    I keep a shortcut to this one for when I inevitbly get asked what is a grown man doing spending so much time and money on mountain bikes. The one you posted is better.

    Maybe you live in a nicer area than me. Round here XT may be on the top shelf but XTR would be behind the counter in a locked cabinet.
