There’s one born every minute

Humour is a rich and wonderful thing, and April Fool’s Day (hey it’s April already!) is always the perfect chance for aspiring mirth meisters to switch on the snigger machine.

But honestly, does each passing minute really result in another addition to Team Gullible? I’ll admit, when I first saw reports of GM buying Specialized I had a momentary wobble of doubt but this was quickly put to rest when I stopped to consider the klaxon sound of warning that was ringing in my ears.

Then of course there was the announcement from Pinkbike that RockShox had just ‘released’ their new FAR Technology (or Future Air Release Technology for the pedants). Now that one was easier to see through than a pint of nothing, even so some commenters appeared to miss the benefits that the system promises. Made me chuckle though.

In other news, I’m back on the ol’ antibiotics. What a downer, I can only nod my head as I read Colin’s offload rant. I still don’t feel I’ve fully recovered from my turn of year ‘flu and last week felt rougher than a bucket of sheepdip which resulted in a trip to the doc’s to get more magic pills. Hopefully the road to recovery is in sight, but it’s phlegm covered and slippier than wet chalk.

You needed to know that…

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years he's now running a YT Industries Jeffsy 29er and a Bird Zero AM Boost.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
