MBUK’s best things of 2011! Plus our new year resolutions #1

| Blog, Mountain Biking Uk | 19/12/2011 09:07am

Kashima coating, the Pivot Mach 5.7 and Belgian cider.

During the run-up to Christmas (read, that time when we all vacate the office and forget we have jobs for a week-and-a-half), the MBUK team have been looking back on our favourite things of 2011, and looking ahead and making plans for 2012.

First up, here’s Senior Staff Writer Ric.


Pivot Mach 5.7 – Unless you race XC or DH, you only need one bike and this is about as good as it gets.

The Mega - I finally ticked it off the ‘to do before death/die as a result of’ list.

RockShox Reverb post - Trail bike, downhill bike. Trail bike, downhill bike. Trail bike/downhill bike…

The Kashima-coated Fox RP23 rear shock was one of the best products Ric tried in 2011

Stella Cidre - Lager-like cider which thrashes the tits off the rest of that sickly sweet rubbish.

Fox Kashima-coated RP23 shock - Game changing bouncer that makes great bikes unstoppable.


Race more – I want to have a crack at one or more of the Irish Gravity Enduro series and/or a UK round.

Get as fit as I was for the Mega – I’ve kept up the cardio but the spare-room gruntfest weights sessions have disappeared. I need to get my engine back!

Ride in new places – I want to ride my bike in a few countries I’ve never been to before.

We’ll have more from the MBUK team over the next week or two – next up, it’s Doddy!
