    Should I buy this?

    This should probably go in the confessions thread, but I'm considering getting a road bike..... Why? I miss riding them, despite how miserable most road cyclists make it look, road bikes are a stupid amount of fun imo. I haven't had one for several years but I've been idly looking at the...

    The Actofive appreciation thread

    F*** it. This is probably warranted. The premise of this thread is quite complex. Post picture of Actofives and / or talk about them. That's it. I'll go first: Sometimes they come in different colours. These are okay too:

    Zelvy ceases trading due to supplier issues

    Zelvy has just announced (via a normally moribund Instagram page) that they have pulled up stumps. Given the brand's history on here, there are no doubt some reading this that will be celebrating or muttering 'good riddance'. FWIW my experience with their products has been very good, as has a...

    Good XC brake recommendations?

    So I've got a pretty old single speed I'm considering bringing back to life but the brakes on it are Avid XXs which - unless someone knows of some black magic to bring such unremitting pos back to life - will be removed as they've been a near endless pita (they came on the bike when I bought it...

    10 degree angleset...

    One that would be hilarious even if it wasn't an April Fools' joke..... (although Guerilla Gravity does have bespoke headsets that can effectively lengthen the reach by 10mm or so - so this might even be true) Meet the Yoann Barelli signature headset cups. The Guerrilla Gravity Geo-Adjust...

    Show us ya back catalogue

    Given the fleet is grounded due to Stage 4 restrictions I’ve been (mis)using my time going through old photos and have stumbled onto an idea – showing you all my old crap bikes, sharing some unasked for nostalgia, providing evidence of how dangerous the for sale section is here and giving you a...

    Working on the Sabbath

    This is officially the most impulsive bike project I've ever been involved with..... Yep, it's a dirt jump bike - Devinci actually calls this a pump track bike but if it looks like a duck (etc.). It's a project that's a bit of a fusion between me being DJ curious for some time and one of my...

    The adventures of Skippy

    Despite happily shitposting on here for many a year now I've never actually contributed a PYR thread. Long story short - I had an On One 456 (bought off here actually). Loved it.
