TF Tuned Forks are awesome. The new fork was leaking oil, when I reported this to them they arranged a courier to collect the fork on Monday this week. I just had a call from them, and they have completely serviced it and upgraded the seals, fork will be back with me by Thursday. All done for free under warranty.
Just really impressed with the service, I would definitely use them again.

Who would be interested in doing a serious 3 day MTB skills course?
I have been looking at www.BetterRide.net as an information source.
The work with people from world champions to enthusiastic amateurs.
Would people want to do a 3 day course with them if a coach came over from the states?
More info here

I would like to learn some drills etc to improve bike handling. A friend has been doing some skills training, which has been useful, but it tends to be a couple of hours at a time. From the betterride website it appears they have a lot of very focused drills and technical advice to help people improve.
It seems that many peoples attitude to MTB training is just to go and ride more, where as in most sports technical training is a huge part. Learning good skills to start with is much easier than correcting ingrained faults later on.
articles like http://betterride.net/blog/2010/moun...demonstration/
Show the difference between the conventional wisdom on MTB technique and the potential better practice. What I have learned from other sports and the training sessions with Brent is that time spent working on technique rather than just riding is a good investment.
