    Bump. Less price.

    2018 Ibis Ripmo

    I had a (brief) go on a large and the standover felt incredibly low. Was an absolute rocket regardless.

    2018 Ibis Ripmo

    I did wonder if that was your steed on the Summit Insta page.... What an absolutely perfect machine. Forks set at 130mm?

    2019 Enduro World Series

    And I think that will be where the series will be the most interesting - watching Adam improve in his fitness and skills and (presumably) slowly work his way up the ranks. Then seeing just how much fucking effort it takes to get incrementally higher still - where will he be at the end of 2020...

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

    Decided to spend a day at Lysterfield with my trusty 26" hardtail. Holy f*** it was fun. Hardtail is now default choice for that place.

    2019 Enduro World Series

    What Moorey said. He does his talking behind the bars. Plus he was still more interesting to listen to than Adam in the episode they were both in. EDIT: also I forgot to add Eddie Masters to my previous list. I'll see myself out.

    2019 Enduro World Series

    I struggle with this series. I love the concept and the support cast but the dude has the charisma of a Nissan Tiida. Some may think that's not important, but ask yourself which riders you like more and follow because they come across as really good value? (step forward Barelli, Winton, Brosnan...

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

    Rode Red Hill because it is the bestest. Weird results from yesterday's mild tsunami though. Fall Line fine, best conditions for riding Deadwoods I think I've ever ridden, Crits covered in standing water but no noticeable difference to grip (may not have been going fast enough) but Pins was...

    The 2020 Orange Alpine 6 is Totally Overhauled - But Looks Exactly the Same

    And people complain that the current Nomad looks ugly? I don't understand anything any more. However if we're looking for hunchy nothing says "I'm going to hang a turd on your immaculate front lawn while the neighbours are watching" like a first gen Niner Jet9 carbon.

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

    It's got a larger cassette now and a longer dropper and it (was) vaguely clean, so I took a sneaky photo prior to a Youies excursion today.. Fair bit dirtier now but getting extremely stoked I seem to have dialled it in properly (taken a bit). The 11-46 cassette on there now might weigh as...

    Help me search for the right frame

    I approve of everything in that photo. Heckler looks awesome and that is the exact colour I wanted a Tracer in. That big overbite clamshell top tube.... so weldy... Have you experimented much with rear shocks on it? How's the CCDB compare to whatever was on it previously?

    Help me search for the right frame

    Yeah, for something with all the sophistication of a barn door, in my experience a Heckler performs really well for what it is (although I may have been spoilt by the DHX on mine, dunno). Alternatively, what about an Intense Tracer? They're not single pivot, are probably still overpriced and...

    Help me search for the right frame

    I reckon that might be one of the last USA made SC's. I was actually going to suggest a Heckler but didn't know if it was ever offered in a 1.5 headtube. I had a 2008 one a few years ago with a DHX 5.0. Bit dog eared but it was a piece of piss to dial in and punched well above its weight.

    It's beginning to disturb me how Polygons are starting to look really not shit. I'd got so used to the metal origami by designer with anger management issues look.

    They also look fully sique on those lime green Yetis they were punching out a few years ago.

    Sick Bicycle Co. Deathwish

    That sucks mate. Always takes the gloss off a new emotional purchase when things aren't what they should be. How's the frame apart from that from what you can tell so far? What's the finish like?

    VIC Lysterfield Park

    F*** I thought that was just me. I know it's something that should just be shrugged off but it does give me a bit of a downer being surrounded by so many mute and / or rude dickheads, especially when you move off the track so their shitty ebike can go past. Just another reason to ride Red Hill...

    Shimano XT / SLX 12-Speed

    Imo XT should be expensive(r). It's meant to be a premium product with weight savings over SLX but sans the tinsel and bullshit of XTR. I never understood why you could buy groupsets of 11 speed SLX or XT for basically $100 difference. Seemed like total market cannibalisation - why have both...
