    Which alum+coil bike?

    The reign sx is a good bit of bike for the price. The DVO suspension is killer and with the 2020's not far away youll get a good deal. Big giant dealers are always more negotiable than the little ones, but dont be scared to ask around for a better price.

    What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    Trying to beat the winter blues by building up a frankenbike from parts in the shed. Something to mess around on the soon to be opened DirtArt pump / skills tracks at Footscray. So far it has cost me zero, but alas no cranks/bb in the shed.
