    First Waltly frame

    Yeah, sortof. I saw 15mm ream depths for Cane Creek ZS headsets on the Cane Creek SHIS poster and asked Waltly to change mine from 12mm (same as yours) to 15mm and got a reply saying "requires custom headtube at an additional USD40 - do you want?" I'm thinking No, as while I can't find the...

    First Waltly frame

    wkkie, I see your frame has 40mm spacing from top of seat tube to centre-line of top tube. I just got my frame design from walty and it's 60mm. Litenbror's looks like 60mm+ too. I'm trying to maximise space in front triangle (whilst still having short enough seat tube for a dropper) so...

    First Waltly frame

    Apparently it's USD980 for a MTB frame (BSA BB, not fancy gearbox mount) plus another USD280 for postage. Is this a bit of a price rise on 6-12 months ago?

    First Waltly frame

    Anyone get double-butted tubing on their Waltly? Seems it's not a current option. Got a reply from them asking whether I insisted on double-butted tubing, with the mildly confusing message "we not provide the double butted tube now, nobody do this in China now, because not reduce the weight"...

    The Single Speed Thread

    I think I might like a bit of flex. I had the Giant XTC Adv set up SS for a while, with carbon wheels. It felt brutally stiff compared to my Inbred, so I think I'd be happy with some flex. I have more waltly questions .. might have to pop them in the waltly thread.

    The Single Speed Thread

    Nice. So I emailed my price quote form to waltly for my own Ti SS, they took a day or two to reply and say they're (already) busy and will be back to me in a few days. What diameter dropper post did you go with / which inner diameter did you get on the seat tube? Did you choose particular tube...

    DH seatpost height

    So, anyone know what BB-to-saddle-rail height any serious/pro DH riders use as well as what's on the same rider's XC/road bikes? Seems like every year for the last few years droppers have gotten longer, with the latest/longest post being touted as "game changer" by reviewers / anyone who needs...

    First Waltly frame

    Hooray. Got an email from Waltly saying they're taking orders again. Was just thinking about placing one with Marino instead - I see they're doing Reynolds 725 now, and of course for a fair bit less than Waltly including the powder coating colour of your choice ..

    VIC FOUND Mechanical disc brake calipers (short pull, aka roadie compatible)

    Shimano make several different cable road disc calipers in both post and flat mount - current range here: https://bike.shimano.com/en-EU/technologies/component/details/disc-brake-road.html I have a pair of old R317's from 2014 in the cupboard. (Though not old enough to be the recalled ones.)...

    ACT 30.9 seatpost with 8mm rails

    I don't think 7x9mm oval clamps would usually be suited to 8mm round saddle rail, sadly.

    ACT 30.9 seatpost with 8mm rails

    The vast majority of posts will only be 7mm, so could have "for 7 or 8 mm rails" printed on the clamp or the packaging I guess. Or maybe you can see that when a 7mm saddle rail is clamped in it, the top/bottom of the clamp is snug but the sides have half a mm open. Saddles with carbon rails...

    ACT 160mm crankset

    Item: 160mm crankset, ideally a triple (3x9). square taper is fine - preferred even, otherwise I'll have to buy and fit a new BB (not a deal breaker.) Location: ACT .. maaybe post Price range/Willing to Pay: $6 - 66 .. but show us what you got? I know 160mm isn't a common MTB length so...

    ACT 30.9 seatpost with 8mm rails

    Item: A 30.9mm seatpost with rails to clamp an 8mm post instead of the usual 7mm Location: ACT, could pay postage from interstate though Price range/Willing to Pay: Depends on post, condition. Say $20-50? Extra Info: Short is fine. Not too fussed about offset. No great hurry - collect after...

    LIGHTS MEGATHREAD - all questions on riding lights asked and answered here!!!

    Anyone own a gen2.0 Gloworm light? Tell me what the Gloworm Link app reports on your battery Full-Charge vs Designed. I'm at a seemingly-disappointing 7400 vs 10000, though it's only been charged a couple of times. More stuff about mine here...

    Gloworm G2.0 lights

    Gloworm have a "second generation" family of lights out that use USB-C batteries and connections on the light: https://www.glowormlites.co.nz/product-category/lights/ I'd thought I'd lash out on an X2 Lightset (2000 Lumens 10Ah battery / not the Adventure 5Ah battery) when Pushys were doing...

    Little Things You Love

    I still love them but while the likes of bloody Goldfinger are now not only using auto-tune and cranking it up when I'd be happy with none at all .. ... we get that woman who should seriously try just-short-of-T-Pain autotune - could be bearable. Maybe even vaguely interesting. But is she a...

    Is there an alternative to FiveTen Freerider Pro?

    Did you mean women's size first? If so, they sound the same as my wife's Freeriders - "US W / UK / EUR / CM." The size tag in all of my recent models (including the Women's Freerider Contacts) lists US / UK / FR / JPN / CHN. (FR = Euro) I know my W's Contacts are the same length as the...

    Is there an alternative to FiveTen Freerider Pro?

    Can anyone confirm whether 5.10 is same / different fit between mens' and womens' versions? Particularly the Freerider Contact - I got a pair of the womens' and they feel super narrow compared to the Freeriders and Impact Pros. Length seems the same for the same French / Japanese sizing - IE...
