    2017 Trek Top Fuel 9.8 - can I change fork?

    I am finding the standard Fox 32 Stepcast fork that came on my 2017 Trek Top Fuel 9.8 way too flexy. I am thinking of changing to a Fox 34 Factory or Performance depending on how good a price I can get. Has anyone done this on a Top Fuel? Does it change the ride characteristics too much? I am...

    TWE Boost Hub

    Does anyone know what type of hubs TWE use for their own branded hubs? I have bought a wheelset second hand and need to change the freehub from XD driver to Shimano and for the life of me I don't know how to remove the XD driver. The 2 end caps appear to be threaded on, I can get non drive...

    Smithfield Trails

    I was in Cairns a few weeks back and had a spare afternoon so went up to Smithfield and hired a Norco dualie from Cairns Mountain Bike Tours. Grabbed a map from them and headed over...I had an awesome solo ride, got to ride most of the trails I think (probably missed a few of the local...

    29er Tyre Thread

    I haven't tried the Rocket Rons, but I do run Ikon on the rear and Ardent Race on the front. Can't beat the durability of Maxxis and I reckon this is a good setup for Canberra trails.

    2x making a comeback With the introduction to XT Di2, does this mean 2x setup might make a comeback? Especially with synchro option.

    wireless earphones for gym

    Yurbuds I had the same issue until I bought YurBuds Inspire 200....not wireless but are sweat proof and have proved the business when riding road and trail as well as in the gym.

    Affordable Cairns bike/gear hire.

    I used Cairns Mountain Bike Tours for a half day hire when I was up there a month ago. Pretty sure it cost me $95 half day for a dualie norco (not DH bike). Was worth it man, awesome riding.

    29er Tyre Thread

    I am a fan of Ikon rear and Ardent Race up front for Canberra XC stuff. Grip well and bag up nicely I reckon.

    Wheel size

    I see brands are basing 29er and 27.5 models on frame size. I personally have a 29er XC bike and a 29er trail both in large frame....I wouldn't go anything else.

    Smithfield Trails

    Hi there, I was in Cairns a few weeks back and rode Smithfield solo. I hired a dualie from Cairns MTB Tours and grabbed a map. The tracks are really well signposted and have a good mix of XC and AM tracks. If you can't get a riding partner go anyway man, you can't go wrong. Watch out for the...
