When you think of a 29 inch hardtail, lycra, trail centres and energy gels probably spring to mind. Not for Joel Anderson though. Watch him take his Marin Nail Trail over road gaps and down his local downhill tracks.

From Wideopen: "Joel Anderson borrowed a Marin Nail Trail 29'er for a couple of weeks - so we followed him round his local XC loop. It's not quite like the XC we know!"
