    CO2 inflator - good thing ?

    I find them better than a pump if you have a issue with tubeless tires and have to break the bead. Have never been able to reseat a tubeless tire with a mini pump. Plus isn’t the rule you should carry out what you carry in?

    Can I cut off my battery box USB cable?

    We were out at day break in derby this morning. -2/-3 frost. And I just had a pair of good pair of wool shocks on. But the can’t be to thick as you need to be able to move toes and keep the blood flowing to your feet and toes

    Can I cut off my battery box USB cable?

    If you have a bigger pair of riding shoes, try them and try to remember to wiggle your toes. It will keep your feet warmer

    Gutted an old X9 3 speed shifter and turned into a dropper remote for for the Rocky Mountain. Was happy with the stock thumb remote that came with the KS dropper when I had them on both bikes, but as was starting to struggle with the when changing between bikes after getting a one up for the big...

    High and low speed compression adjustment - how much

    If you can, get your hands on a shock wiz. They are a great bit of kit and the app presents the the data it captures really well and the recommendations it makes.

    170mm fork recommendations..

    Was looking for the same type of fork last year. Ended up with a second hand Factory Fox 36 with the RC2 damper and put a vorbsprung luftkappe kit the air spring. Am really happy with now. At first it was a bit harsh on the small bump stuff but the luftkappe fixed that and it is some much more...

    What should I buy - Norco sight or canyon Spectral?

    Norco, it feels like you are sitting in it rather than on top of it which is the feeling I got on the canyon

    Georgetown mtb trails(tassie keeps building)

    George Town is interesting, as there is some ghetto spots but there also seems to be so upmarket areas there to.

    Georgetown mtb trails(tassie keeps building)

    The big thing with Maydena is that the town is like Derby was 5 years ago with limited food options, no where really to buy food or booze. And I can only eat so many burgers from the bike park and drink so many cans of gold from the RSL at 1984 prices. And the town really doesn’t seem that...

    2019 Enduro World Series

    Not to take it away from Martin but Sam did not look his normal self on trail on Sunday. On stage 4 he seemed almost in cruise mode and wasn’t on the pedals at all coming out of the corner we were watching on when everyone else was full gas out of the same corner. And the stage he did win was...

Started to get my gear together on Monday and my googles are missing, order some up from MTB direct yesterday and went for the express option to get them in time.
