    Caravans. Particularly Toy Haulers.

    I wouldn't be holding my breath on a big sale. There will be show specials, as there are at all shows - this online event replaces leisure fest, which is the second largest Victorian show - behind the Feb show at the showgrounds. 90% of caravan manufacture in Australia happens in Victoria, with...

    XT Di2 plans, advice needed.

    You will be right. just be careful of the length, best to allow some slack, if a duallie there will be some movement, and also if there's a crash, you don't want to be ripping cables out, the ports can be damaged. The other consideration is cable routing and getting one single length of cable...

    XT Di2 plans, advice needed.

    Biggest issue will be if the 1400mm cable is long enough to get from the junction to the rear mech.
