    Fox 36 Grip2 lower leg service

    Gday rotorburners, I have serviced many forks in the past (mostly lower leg services) and the time has come to strip and service my 2019 Grip2 Fox 36 fork. I see on the Fox website that instead of using the gold oil in both legs, you now need some special 5wt teflon infused oil in the Grip...

    My ultimate bike combo

    I have been riding mtb for many years and have at one point or another been a XC guy or a DH rider having gone through 'phases' of only riding the one discipline. But in the last probably 6 or so years I have been enjoying all forms of riding and hence have tried to have a 'do it all' bike - I...

    1990's Trek 'Ejector Seat' rebuild

    Thanks to Matt C for the bike as listed in the vintage mtb thread, I picked this up a couple weeks ago. The bike was in pretty good condition, with only flat tyres stopping me from riding it after I put it together! I can remember my brothers mate having one of these back in the early 90's and...

    XTR Bracket

    I managed to bend the 'bracket axle unit' (shimano code Y5XD98130) on my XTR deraillieur when a stick went into the derailieur riding yesterday (see red arrow on pic below). Not sure why the hanger didnt bend... thought that was its job! Seems as though they are hard to find from the usual...

    No suspension Charge Duster

    Thought I would put some knobbies on my commuter and see how it goes offroad (how it would have been in the 80's riding mtbs... no suspension!). Was a blast actually - you really had to pick your lines and move the bike around more than I would on my normal ride (SB66). So made for a very...

    1995 Carbon FS vs 2012 Carbon FS

    My first full suspension bike - a 1995 Trek Y22, which I bought when they first came out. Mix of XT and LX running gear, Rock Shox Judy forks and a fairly basic Fox air shock (about 2.5 inches of travel front/rear), canti brakes (about as effective as dragging your feet along the ground to try...
