    What do your kids ride?

    Got one for the previous bike. It still didn’t get a great deal of use.

    What do your kids ride?

    Fucking iPad for school has ended up consuming a lot of my young fellas spare time. It is a full on addiction.

    What do your kids ride?

    Repurposed from my wife’s bike. Can’t get him interested. Maybe should start a new thread, What don’t your kids ride.

    Reckon this might’ve been it. Timing is about right. Thought it was in Melbourne.

    Bike Related Deaths

    A rider died in what I understand was a head on crash with another rider out my way 3 or 4 weeks ago (Eastern Melbourne). Anyone else hear of this? Have always wondered what the outcome of a head on with another rider on the Eastern Freeway bike path would be like. Especially after near misses.

    Old mate doesn’t appear to have the first idea about fascism. I’m sure he ticks at least a couple of the boxes. Where the hell did he find 1.2 million subs?

    Plastic bags, climate change, renewable energy,

    Home with the kids for school holidays, in Melbourne. My wife has just texted me to make sure all external doors are shut and suggested I block the cracks under the door to stop the air from outside coming in. I haven't seen the sky due to the smoke for 3 days. The pain and terror of these...

    Formula fork air cap removal / socket size??

    They’re actually pretty lightweight. They don’t don’t need to produce a great deal of torque. the spanners I got were similar to this https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/WCM-30mm-32mm-Fork-Wrench-Tool-fits-FOX-FIT-CTD-top-air-cap-Socket-Fox-40-36-/252011535057

    Formula fork air cap removal / socket size??

    You were lucky to find one that worked. In most situations the socket needs to be ground down.

    Formula fork air cap removal / socket size??

    Suspension fork caps are notorious. You might need a specialised tool. I bought one for rockshox and another for fox. Made by someone on their lunch break. Good gear.

    Trump.....

    We have moved into an era where it’s ok to deflect attention from your fuck ups by doing something like pardoning a convicted murderer. Not too long ago even attempts at this kind of action would have signified the end of any political career.

    Recommend me a turntable

    ‘ If you're so worried about having a flat surface, then go to the effort of ensuring a flat surface.’ I’m not worried about it. I was just offering a suggestion as why it has 3 feet instead of 4. Maybe the stability thing is down to a level that isn’t noticeable to an observer. Same with the...
