First up, the ad specifically designed for New Zealand.
The one for Oz, this one's a bit of a tear jerker, so get your hankies ready.
The South African ad sticks to the tired and true stereotyping
And least we forget, the Barry Crump commercials, 'hold on it gets a bit bumpy'

Just in time for that post ride brew, just landed more of the SC pint glasses. Go and see your dealer and secure yours now or flick me an email. Operators are standing by....honest, the last batch sold out faster than I could pack them.
Also just landed, the new SPX kits too, now with shimano XT brakes....so nice. SPX29er, SPX XC & SPX AM.

The real PHF action starts at about the 2.43 mark....unless you're into watching someone try to ride a bike around a track designed for cars.
Bike Magazine / Porsche Willow Springs Duathlon from Bike magazine on Vimeo.
Now I am all for safer roads etc......but sometimes, I do wonder about if we have too many road rules?

The next most exciting car is still by the Fiat Group and that's the Abarth 695 Competizione. Need a super car squeezed into a Fiat 500 body? How about 180bhp in a car that small too? Rear seats are over rated too.
Of course there was a whole bunch of hybrids and electric cars that were all on display too. A few concepts that will never see the light of day, but looks like a good collection of cars. The death of the internal combustion engine is not here yet....but some of the alternatives are looking pretty good now too.
Need to know more about the cars on show? Check out autoblog.com (FYI pictures are from autoblog.com too)
And I will leave you with this clip of a stolen Porsche Boxter chase scene in Queensland.
My only question, why steal a yellow one?

I know, there are a bunch of you skeptics that think I just rave about every new model of bike that I am riding.....but honestly, I don't make this stuff up.
Here is an email from a good customer (who we'll call Matt from Taupo) of Bike Culture (have you checked out their new website yet...go on, click on the link).
Anywho, Matt from Taupo just got his new Santa Cruz Blur TRc, and he sent Bike Culture and myself the email below. Matt from Taupo previously had a LTc and previously to that an alloy LT2.

Alfa Romeo 4C will go in production in 2013.....might only be left hand drive.
Lapo Elken (heir to the Fiat/Chrysler empire) is a bigger ass-hat that you or I, he managed to block traffic in Turin, by parking over some tram tracks.
Panthermobile is up for auction, you better rush, bidding closes 14th October.

If you happen to be driving around Auckland CBD, you might of noticed the large billboards for the loveNZ campaign......actually they are pretty hard to miss. The billboards are pretty massive.
Who's that girl with the Blur LT carbon you ask? Well that's Anja McDonald, Anja told me it was a hard day of riding her bike and stopping to be photographed on what looks to be a damp day in Queenstown. Or it might of been a really sunny day in Queenstown and I got sent some blurry photo's of the billboard.
The really interesting coincidence is that Anja's fiancee, Tristan Rawlence, is currently appearing in local mtb magazines (like the latest issue of Spoke). This advert came out without Tristan's knowledge, he was racing the 6 hour Super-D in the picture. Nice bike Tristan, looks familiar.

Firstly a MASSIVE congrat's to Anton Cooper for his silver medal win at the UCI World Champs Junior Men XC race. Anton won the last two world cup rounds and he's being noticed.......who's noticing, how about Greg Minnaar! More info on Spokemagazine.com, where else?
The UCI are also causing a little bit of controversy over their new sponsorship arrangement with a website that no one has heard of.....more on this over at Dirt.mpora.com
While the Mountain Bike World Champs are on, there is also Eurobike to think about.
Ibis are showing off their new bike the Ripley 29er, with it's new eccentric DW linkage design. If you want to know more about this new DW linkage design, Dave Weagle himself is posting on mtbr.com forum.
Straitline Components are also at Eurobike showing off their wares, like their new AMP pedals and what they're currently working.....like the AMP stem.
Santa Cruz are also at Eurobike and of course their Syndicate Team are at the world champs and they are the main sponsors for the Oregon Super-D which is having it's final this weekend.
Santa Cruz are showing off their current range and of course their new editions, the Blur TRc, Tallboy Alloy and the Highball.

OK, if you've got this far, then you deserve some PHF to get you through the weekend.....I'll be fine, I have the latest issue of Evo to read.

Now Ibis have been working on the Ripley for about 3 years, the really funky thing about it is they're using DW's new eccentric links to replace the usual links.
