    I don’t understand, why no titanium spring? Maybe an obtanium but quite unusual on a World Cup bike.

  2. gert

    Haha, good work Nige, nice mini mudguards on the calipers!

  3. treehuggergraeme

    how many bikes are we going to see at the races with the latest ‘pro-mod’ – redbull mudguards for our brakes?

  4. gert

    I for one can’t see myself riding without them

  5. max

    his mechanic doesnt seem to know too much about the bike. haha

  6. joey

    can anyone clear up for me does he say 90 or 9 psi his fork surely its got to be 90?

  7. Dan

    I think those mud guards for the brakes are a genuinely good idea, i’m forever pulling lumps of mub and sheep shit from out of the top of my callipers.

  8. Tom_

    Aren’t they going to provoke more heat problems on longer runs?

  9. Neil

    Max – that’s just how Nigel sounds all the time, like he doesn’t know anything. In reality, he knows a lot more than your average bike mechanic.

    Joey – it’s 90 PSI in the forks, it’s just his funny Australian accent.

    I like his description for the tyres – the black things on the round things – genius!

  10. Marshy

    isnt he a kiwi?

  11. Aaron

    So is that tubeless?

  12. coozah

  13. ando

    red bull cans are 13% more efficient than monster

  14. powermutant

    Really, I thought he was South African, nah Shirley he’s a seppo!

    “Should we blame the government?
    Or blame society?
    Or should we blame the images on tv?”

    All together now …

  15. tumble

    Nigel is from Brisbane, AUS.

  17. Harveyp

    Kiwi – Yarpie – Seppo?? Give me a break, Nige is 100% pure Ooorstralian mate!!

  18. gabe

    and how exactly does a mudguard on a brake help improve race times? i dont think i have ever felt the mud in my brake was holding me back.i think perhaps they serve some other purpose….
