    Complementary colours...

    So, I'm looking at buying a new frame. I have the option of getting it painted in pretty much whatever colour I want. The thing is, the build kit I'll be putting on it is what I'll steal from my Waltly, which is slathered in red-anodised components. In theory green is the "complimentary"...

    Deanodising - Who's done it, what's your technique?

    So, I want to remove a few small bits of colour from my bike. I know deanodising is a thing, so wondered who's done it - and is there any tips or tricks you might have? I would probably favour a slower, gentler approach that may need to be repeated a couple of times compared to a "everything...

    Single pivot with a coil - How does it function?

    So I keep seeing pictures of single pivot bikes (or single pivot with yoke) and coil shocks and wondering how riders "get away with it"? ie: a Pipedream Full Moxie: Don't single pivot bikes generally have F-all progression in the suspension? What's providing the ramp up here? Is it just...

    beeb's ride diary

    A thread I'll add to over time with any ride videos/edits. Today's outing was good ol' Youies again, but this time on the SC Highball and a couple of different tracks. Pretty tentative at the start again, wasn't sure how XC tyres, skinny carbon rims and an 80mm stem would go over the rocks...

    Santa Cruz Highball C

    "Never buy used carbon" they say. "Bollocks" I said. I've been wanting to try a carbon hardtail for quite a long time now, but everything new either didn't tickle me or was just stupidly expensive, or had a weird mish-mash of "standards" fitted and I'm trying to standardise my fleet as much as...

    Gates Belt Drive

    Who's actually run one? Doing the long term planning for my next bike, and am after some real-world experience with belt-drives. The setup I am looking at will probably be in conjunction with a Pinion gearbox, so I'm not too concerned about the potential couple of percent efficiency loss, more...

    26" Tyres

    Couple of newies coming from Kenda for the DJ/dual-slalom/pump track crowds. I reckon they look pretty good! The booster in particular looks like a good all-rounder. Kenda's new 26" tires @Ultra Lord @pink poodle

    AM Waltly Ti Hardtail

    So, going back a couple of months I decided I wanted to simplify my riding. I've been lucky enough to own some very high-end carbon trail and enduro bikes, have ridden a few mates alloy and carbon dual-suspension bikes from different brands, and while I'm not against having a dually - there's...

    BikeYoke Divine

    Anyone used one? I have a BikeYoke Revive 185mm and love it, but haven't seen much referring to the newer/cheaper Divine post. The "springy" function when not at full extension or bottom out is intriguing (given I'm shopping for a hardtail), but not sure if having an undamped springy seatpost...
