THE ANSWERS TO ALL OF YOUR TECH/GEAR QUESTIONS

CARBON OR TI? 27.5 OR 29? THERE’S A VERY SIMPLE ANSWER TO THOSE, AND ALL OTHER TECH QUESTIONS. HOWEVER, YOU MIGHT NOT LIKE WHAT DANN ALBRIGHT HAS TO SAY.

Mountain bikers, more than most athletes, have a tendency to get focused on tech and gear. Are 26in or 27.5in wheels better? Are 29ers good for tall riders? Should you ride 2x10 or 1x11? Is the Specialized Brain suspension more efficient than Trek’s RE:aktiv? Is carbon or titanium a better hardtail choice? Should you ride clipless or flat pedals? Standard fork or inverted? Five or six inches of travel?

There’s a ton of information out there and everyone has an opinion, making it rather difficult to get the answers you’re looking for. Fortunately for you, I’m here with the answer to every single one of your tech and gear questions.

About Singletrack

We've got our fat bikes and thermal clothing at the ready and we live in hope of snow. So far all we've got is mud - on the trails and in the streets. If this carries on, issue 104 may contain a grouptest of wellies. However, this issue we bring you: We Work Here - Ragley. Barney takes a look a this Northern Irish manufacturer to see what innovations are leading their revival in the market place. International Adventure: Czech Mate - Rowan Sorrell takes a look at some purpose built trails​ in the Czech Republic​. The name of the place is unpronounceable but the trails are excellent and make for a perfect long weekend adventure. International Adventure: The Goat - So, you win a goat, you let it roam free in the mountains, and then later you decide to go and see if you can find it. Nathan Hughes takes us on an unlikely adventure with pro rider Timo Pritzel.​ Classic Ride: Pete Scullion rides Dumyat near Stirling, Scotland. Race Head: Rampage! Most of us will have spent some time on the internet watching clips from Red Bull Rampage, but there's a group of die-hard - or possibly fool-hardy - fans who make the trek into the desert to watch it live. Grinder Bike: Greg puts a beautiful looking titanium Vaaru through its paces. Is it as good as it is pretty? Bike Test: Full Plussers - a new generation of slimmer-than-a fat-bike full suspension bikes is appearing. Chipps put three ​from Salsa, Scott and Specialized ​to the test. In our exclusive subscriber section - available to subscribers or to purchase through our shop or premier dealers: UK Adventure: Sam Flanagan rides Black Sail​ pass in the Lakes​. A bit more remote than your average ride, he considers what skills and equipment it takes to step up your riding from trail center to the middle of nowhere. Last Word: Dann Allbright reckons he has the answer to all your technical questions...
