Reviews2

Unfortunately our initial "Reviews" post has now over grown Bloggers post size limit and cannot be updated anymore :(

However the clever peeps at Bloggerville have allowed us to categorise our posts so to look for old entries, expand the "Categories" option in the *sidebar ->

Alternatively expand the "Archive" option in the *sidebar -> and browse away ;-)

Linky to the original Reviews post.

Reviews

As many a Blog has been created that review all thangs MTB, I thought it'd be handy to have a central area where they can all be found, incl'g a handy link on the sidebar. So Blog away Posse and review kit to your hearts content...

I find that the Blogger Archive drop-down is useless unless you know "when" stuff was Blog'd. So with a little help, I'm sure that the links to any new reviews will mysteriously find there way into this handy reference blog. Eventually...
