Hand made in Halifax really does mean just that. Nice look at how Orange make their frames.

Look out for 'motivational' calendars (you can't miss them) and frame alignment.

He shreds pretty well too! I guess some technique translates.

You reckon? I thought he would still have the same amount as even if he didnt ride motorbikes too. Nature is a different animal to tarmac.

I don't think fear is a factor.

The ability to deal with speed, making instinctive adjustments and projecting ahead. Certainly translate from fast road biking.

Once you have fear you lose your edge.
