warm weather spots
bleau.info/rond/ - slow drying/ cool
bleau.info/potets/ - perfect first spot, only easy stuff and pretty low with flat landings
bleau.info/plaines/ - excellent yellow
bleau.info/aigu/ - nice spot
bleau.info/canche/ - quick drying, tons of easy stuff
bleau.info/fin/ - lovely spot, bit of a walk

nihilistic / optimistic

or, as 8 speed becomes scarcer (and gets reserved for show ponies), trawl the ebay ocean of cheapish 9/10sp seond hand stuff and ride it until it fails then bin. cheaper than buying new and plenty of spares availability - but you won't be able to partake in di2/disc/hydro type discussions with the shiny gear people... sandpandafacedotjaypeg
montane terra pants pretty hardwearing water resistant / quick drying
vaude packs - look and feel good - fall apart after one alpine outing... :/
