Which bike company will win the race to supply Elden Nelson with a 'long term review' MTB?
He trashed his current mountain bike after one rock-bounce too many. On his blog he jokingly suggested "smart bike company marketing types" get in touch in order to supply an FOC machine in exchange for product placement mentions and pix.
Nelson told BikeBiz.com: "There'd be an article about the first ride, an article about getting used to a new bike, an article about how much difference the riding experience is from one bike to the next. My blog is all about the riding lifestyle, and a new bike is a big deal for people like me."
