    rockshox pike rc1 - compression adjuster does zilch

    Just after some quick opinions from some other RS Pike owners out there. I have 120mm travel 2014 Pikes on my Specialized Camber 29. The camber comes with the basic model pike (RC1 I think) so only has compression adjustment at the top of the right leg, and rebound on the bottom. Problem is -...

    NSW 30.9 seatpost - swap for 31.8 SDS i-beam or Thompson Elite

    I'm an idiot. I just bought a brand new iBeam seatpost (20mm offset - 400mm) and matching seat in the wrong bloody size. I also have a Thompson Elite (straight 400mm) from my old bike which has seen about 6 months use and is still basically brand new. Both are 31.8, but I neeeeed a 30.9...

    big ups to the guys at Fox Shox and Woolys Wheels

    I've had a lot of bad experiences with bike parts and warrantees and dodgy bike shop mechanics over the last couple of years, but recently had an extremely good one so thought I'd share: I just bought a Giant XTC 29er on ebay - sight unseen (yeah I know - asking for trouble). I got it cheap...

    Wide bars with a comfy sweep for a 29er?

    Hey all. I've just gone to the dark side and picked me up a Giant XTC 29er as my race rig. Finding it very fast and quite comfy but I find the stock Giant bars are too straight? I like the width but my hands aren't comfortable (yeah - that's what SHE said) - I'd like to find something with...

    26 inch rigid forks needed

    hi there. I need to get my commuter rocket going again and need some rigid forks to throw onto it. 26 inch QR disk brake preferred. It's an old GT MTB frame so suspension-corrected forks probably aren't necessary though won't make too much difference either. I can afford up to about...

    Hey folks. Had this problem for a while, it stopped, but I just serviced the fork and now it's back again. basically the U-turn adjuster keeps winding down on it's own as I ride - I go out for a ride with full 140mm travel, then an hour later when I stop, it's down to 110mm or something...
