    RS 32mm Solo Air Servicing - Which o-ring in negative air piston?

    Did an air spring service on my Recon Gold last week and lost track of which o-ring I removed from the bottom of the negative air piston. There are two o-rings in the service kit of the same diameter but different thickness that would fit but if I install the thinner of the two it seems like...

    I'm going to be moving up to the Gold Coast for work in a couple of weeks and I'm just wondering if any riders in the area would be willing to show me around some of the local riding spots once I get there? I'm up for pretty much any riding (DH/XC/DJ/Street) although my DJ and Street skills...

    Recommend Some Baggy Shorts

    I'm planning to do some road touring/long XC rides at the end of the year so I've decided that after riding in shorts and t-shirts for near on 10 years it's time I buy myself some proper riding gear. Choosing jersey's has been fairly easy, however I'm aware that a poorly designed short could...

    Problem With Ad System and Tabbed Browsing

    I've just noticed that if I open, for example, two threads at once then click on an ad in the first thread I opened I actually get directed to the web page for the ad in the second thread. Despite being a bit annoying, I can't imagine advertisers would be too happy with this happening. (I'm...

    Broken Article Layout in Mozilla

    Informing Posters of Deleted Threads

    It looks like a thread I posted has been deleted and I'm a little uncertain why. Perhaps in the future it would be a good idea to inform the original poster when and why a thread has been deleted. At least that way the poster knows what they've done wrong and can avoid it in the future.

    How do you connect to Farkin?

    Since I've seen a few people bitching about the sizes of downloads in Phat Vids I thought it might be interesting to get an idea of what sort of internet connection people are using.

    Broken Marzocchis

    I'm after a pair of lowers to suit a 2001 Marzocchi Z5 with 130mm of travel. I think lowers from other year model forks with 30mm stanchions (ie not recent model DJ's) and 130mm travel should work as well. The critical dimensions are: Stanchions diameter - 30mm. Distance between stanchions...
