    VIC WTB: DH Suitable Brake-set

    Thanks mate, Had a read of his post. looks like they might need a lever rebuild. In that case I may as well just rebuild one of the newer sets of Sram brakes in the drawer suffering from similar issues. All yours if you can use the spares

    Moving to Canada for 12 months - what to take???

    I lived in Whistler/Vancouver for a little while a few years ago. Took my bike from Aus with me, and was glad I did once I had wandered around a few bike shops. Prices were similar to here, but factor in exchange rate and taxes and I was far better off. If you would prefer to take a bit extra...

    Cleaning/setting up the bike last night and I noticed the the derailleur wasn’t running 100%.
