    Tubeless repair - recommendations

    I’m looking for a Christmas present for Junior. He’s going to be racing EWS again next year, so I’m thinking about a plug kit with built in inflator, which seems to be the quick way of getting going again after putting a hole in a tyre. He has a plug kit and a separate inflator, I’m looking for...

    26" DJ fork - which one?

    Junior snapped the steerer tube on the forks on his DJ bike. I think the forks were originally off Caroline Buchanan's 4X bike from when she was about 15, so they had a long, hard life. Junior now reckons he needs a whole new bike, because "you cannot get 26 forks any more". A quick google...

    Junior and I took advantage of the crap weather yesterday to do some trail maintenance on Bernies III at Mt Narra, clearing fallen trees and pruning overhanging branches, so it should now be riding nicely.

    Strava accuracy

    I got all excited yesterday when I set a new PR down Luge at Stromlo, normally about a 3 minute segment for me, descending and lots of berms to rail for those who don’t know it, did a 2:43 according to Strava. I got even more excited when I checked riders I follow and saw I was only 1 second...

    NSW 26inch rim brake wheels

    My neighbor and wife's very close friend borrowed my wife's commuter and dropped it off the car rack at 100 kph, taco'ed both the wheels. Very embarrassed, but apparently because I'm a bike expert, it was Ok to return it stuffed. Big argument between me and wife ensued. Anyway, enough of...

    I'm building up a bike out of the spare parts bin, and have found a Code approx 2013 model with a stuffed lever body, and a good Elixer complete. Have any of you 'Burners ever put an Elixer lever on a Code Caliper? I guess the main issue will be longer lever take up, assuming the Elixer...
