    The QUICK question thread.....

    Is a 160mm fork pushing it on a bike designed around a 140 fork? Bike is a banshee paradox v3 29er. Recommend a 44offset fork. Was going to buy a fox 34 140 (mtb direct only have 51 offset left), they do have a 160 lyric rc2 that has a 42 offset. Im tempted to try the lyric even though im a fox man.

    Pics of damage but hard to get photo on the phone. I have tried nuts and bolts (my go to shop), the look on his face wasn't promising. He said straight away it's off a bike isn't it.

    Can you buy a 15x1.0 helicoil kit? If you think I didn't strip the bush in my bronson chainstay you'd be wrong. Fuckwit

    The QUICK question thread.....

    All so true. I was only having a winge. If I was in the car by myself the reaction would of been more holy shit you don't see that everyday and been ringing people with a great story. With daughter in the car, things changed especially after a while of thinking what if.

    Would you report this? This is more a vent than anything else. Stewed on this all day. This morning we are all in the car heading to the park with our daughter. Driving down the highway (this is Hobart, twin lane single direction, no breakdown lane as there are driveways on left side). The car...

    Getting arsey (a saddle thread)

    I've just put an sdg radar on, first ride I hated it. After a little adjusting I'm coming round to liking it. They are cut short at the back.

    Confessions from the fuckwits

    Ive resorted to a pad burn 3 times. No pots or pans needed, aluminium foil straight on the cooker has worked the times I've done it. They do smoke a bit when they need cooking.

    AM Waltly Ti Hardtail

    Well done on a top bike build. Just had a look at pics on computer and wow what a bike. You have planted a seed for me, I was thinking of building an orange p7 next but this seriously has me thinking of going a different way now.

    That's a Kodak moment. Never seen one before but some good camo going on there.

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

    Fitted new front tyre and bled the brakes. Rode halfway up a mountain, rode back down, saw a snake, rode faster (No stopping for pics today). Repeat tomorrow and should be all prepped for Derby next weekend. Oh and hardtails are so much fun

    I've got a specialised command 100mm external if you want to go that way again. It works fine but does have some marks on it. You can have it for $60 posted if any good for you. I'll get some pics if you are interested

    27.5 is dead

    I don't no what is considered a plus tyre. I'm normally a year or two behind the times. 2.35 is the widest tyre I've ever run, taken a gamble and trying a 2.6 for the first time today (29er).
