First ride impressions - STRIKINGLY FAST! I believe Giant have managed to take some weight off their already light 29er hardtail frame making it even more of a race machine.

Swapped out - I’ve ordered a -17 degree stem to get the front end a little bit lower to achieve a more aggressive position on the bike. The lock-on grips have been swapped for foamies due to personal preference and

Impressed with the National XCO win of every-man Jared Graves on the weekend on his Yeti Arc 29er? A bloke who has also won XCO's since he was a grom is Aiden Lefmann. Just happens that he rides the same rig. Here is his review of the Yeti ARC 29er with lefty...

So I've been hitting the dirt for over 5 years now, and it's been a fun learning curve, especially starting out as a roadie.

In her sunshine Vitamin B trip to Townsville Jessica Douglas had the very good fortune to swing a leg over the Giant Lust 27.5inch wheeled bike. There is a lot of curiosity about how 27.5" performs so here's five quick take aways from Jess.

SS

I have been riding and racing mountain bikes throughout Australia and the US for 25 years, so I am old and have owned more than a few bikes, this is my 3rd single speed. Breaking the frame of my previous SS meant I needed a new bike, something I had not planned on, so what to buy?

The Superbike

When Yeti first released the SB66 I saw a picture in a magazine and almost instantly decided that it would be my next bike. I loved the look of its smooth curves and low, long geometry. Then I read the reviews, took a test ride and there was no looking back.

Why did I choose the SB66?

I enjoy riding down hills a lot more than up, but I still want to ride up, and I like
