Backpacks

Any thoughts on backpacks. I always used camelbak as nothing beat their durability but they have changed the material they use and frankly are rubbish now. What do people think is a good substitute. Sick of companies compromising quality.

New Camelbak options

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Have been looking around for a new hydration pack for the Summer and wondered about trying out the Camelbak which I have not used before.
They have a new antidote bladder with a removable hose connection so this should make it easy to pull out and pop in the fridge/esky.
I don't need a huge bag and was looking like going for the LOBO.
Can anyone have any comments or pet hates about any of the Camelbaks?

Does anyone actually stock gear anymore?

Hey guys, I'm getting increasingly frustrated trying to find bike shops that actually stock a decent range of gear and spares (bloody internet).

At the moment I'm looking to buy some MTB shorts but I don't want to fork out $100+ without at least trying them on first, and to be fair dinkum I would like to be able to compare styles first as well.

Can anyone recommend a bike shop in Sydney that actually stocks a range of styles, brands and sizes of MTB Shorts?

Cheers

Ok so I have tried filming my ride with a mobile phone in one hand and that didnt end well. My camera is to big and bulky and certainly not water or mud proof. what are my options?

I have been investigating what is available in Australia and though fellow MTBkrs would appreciate this info. BTW, I don't work for this company nor do I profit from it's sale - just thought I'd share my research with you.

MTBking can often lead to accidents where a tooth is broken. The chances of it being reimplanted are normally very low. Only 25% of avulsed teeth are successfully reimplanted. This is because the tooth is still 'alive' and can die very quickly before it can be reattached by a dentist.
