    The other day I found out the 29er wheels struggle to flow over old railway sleepers hidden in long grass. Luckily there was a patch of nettles to break my fall.

    Yesterday I saw what happens to £700 forks when you ride in to a tree stump hidden ferns. A set of bent Rockshox BoXXers and a headset top cup literally smashed out of the frame.
