We made the most of the long trip from Bristol to Scotland for the Fort William World Cup by visiting the highly regarded Tweed Valley in search of some awesome riding.
Hitting up the Glentress trail centre, which forms a part of the 7 Stanes trail network, we were joined by Trek pro rider Tracy Moseley and up and coming talent Martha Gill, who rides for Marin. To say that we had a blast is an understatement and if you want to find out more, grab a copy of the mag today!
We've also been really busy testing bikes so that you can make informed buying decisions. This month, we endeavoured to find out what the best trail bike is for less than £2,800.
We focused on bikes with no more than 130mm of travel; two of the bikes on test are 29ers, while the other two have 650b wheels. So, which bike came out on top? You'll have to grab a copy to find out.
With the trend for wider wheels becoming more common, we thought it was time to test rims with a bit of extra girth.
Looking at wheels with 25–35mm internal widths, we ran them through our normal testing procedure to find out which set is best. Turn to page 128 in issue 346 to find out which hoops came out on top...
Richie Rude is proving himself to be quite a machine on the Enduro World Series. We managed to get an up close and personal look at the bike that helps him ride so damn fast. So what makes it super? Grab a copy of the mag to find out more.
Enlisting the help of MBUK team rider Alex Bond, we teach you how to become courageous and send technical jumps — it's not an easy task and we recommend following Alex's instructions word for word for the best results!
We've also got our hands on some tasty bikes to give you some first ride impressions.
Straight out of the box and onto the trails, we've swung a leg over the Rocky Mountain Altitude Carbon 70, the Evil The Calling X01 Eagle and a Focus Jam C SL. If you want to know what our first thoughts are about these bikes, grab a copy of issue 346 now!
