    Little Things You love

    Tiny thing I dont hate. That feeling you get when your ring hole starts getting itchy and tickly at random times and it's not your partner trying to pleasure you. And then you feel the tickle crawling up your crack. Never had this issue until I had kids and dogs in the house.

    Things I miss

    Amid the chaos of covid19 and future pandemics...... Keep it realish I miss being able to buy 26" tyres, some baldy from Ballarat has got em all hoarded. I miss TP, man how I would love some TP! I miss the smell and fumes of leaded petrol v8's rumbling away on a summer's day in a traffic jam...

    Narrow wide chainrings - the best of them....

    Hi gang, I'm in the market now for a new chainring as the current is worn and dropping chain alot.

    Twelve point pivot bolts

    Some of my pivot bearings need attention, after tracing and fixing all the creaks on the old bike I've found the linkages are also creaking. I've got the wishbone off and one bearing is fine and one crunchy, both were dry so I'm a f'wit for not packing grease into them more often. The other...

    Walk or ride a steep hill

    Is walking up a steep hill while pushing a bike more or less taxing on the body than riding up the hill on the bike? Personally I find the variables so great within the many situations one might find themselves in to ask this question whilst vigorously panting for air and clicking the shifter...

    RIP Stan Lee

    A super human has passed today. Stan and his fellow artists created a lot of magic over the decades. I've grown up eagerly waiting for the next Spiderman issue to arrive at the newsagent before I later graduated to the comic book store and a whole new world of comics opened up. I've enjoyed...

    Ride share bikes, helmet laws and the blind eye

    I just saw a bloke getting pinged by a policeman for not wearing a helmet. He was on a privately owned bike. Ride share bikes and the users of them on the other hand seem to enjoy the blind eye of the police as most riders of these dodgy poorly maintained bikes cruise about sans helmet. The...

    Shoe sizing 'standards'

    Before I rant about shoe sizing lack of standards my question is, if I have a pair of Five Ten Impacts and they fit very snugly but I just find them too stiff, will a Freefider in the same size fit nicely or should I go up a size for roomy softness? My favorite pair of riding shoes are my...
