    Anyone ride a Reid?

    I am just about to pull the trigger and buy a Polygon Siskiu T8 (currently $2800 plus a small fee for delivery to the country). But just wondering before I do, has anyone had any experience with Reid bikes? Specifically their VICE FS 3.0. Alot cheaper (yes, less spec'd and slightly heavier)...

    Will a new bike make me ride?

    Hi everyone... it's been a long time since I've posted here. I am a born again newbie. Long story short, I live 5 minutes from my local tracks, yet have only accessed them twice in 12 months. It is (my excuses) because of a variety of reasons such as studying at university full time, working...

    Adding gears to Dirt Jumper? Haro Steel Reserve 1.2

    Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to add gears to a Dirt Jumper? I was hoping to somehow turn it into a 3x1 or 1x7 or something. There are no mounts on the bike so it would probably be quite difficult. It is my sons bike. He loves it and does well riding single...

    Hi all, I am having the worst of luck with earphones at the gym. One earbud always stops working, wires at the plug side come loose etc etc. I am thinking maybe some bluetooth earphones are the way to go to prevent this drama from happening again. I would love some suggestions? Subtle...

    Hub help

    G'day all, Towards the end of my ride today I noticed a grinding noise coming from the back wheel. On closer inspection I realised that the noise only happened when I was free-wheeling and stopped when I was pedalling. So from that I figured this is a free hub issue? It's a Shimano M525 10...
