    The fancy banshee

    Mondraker just wasn't doing it for me, then I saw a fb post by banshee NZ showing a Rune in a colour I'd never seen before. Bit of digging and missing link bikes had one ordered for me. Turned out it was a limited edition colour that was yet to be officially released. Very limited apparently...

    Yep. These'll do just fine.

    Should probably put a thread up here for my steeds. In the beginning there was an 05 SC Heckler. Cool bike, still have it and will rebuild it soon but that's another bike story. I needed something newer and more angry and more capable of saving my arse. That's where Facebook stepped in with a...

    XC It's cool cos it's old

    After a bit of a riding hiatus (injury enforced) and after a fair bit of looking for something a bit retro this came up on eBay for a steal, 1998 Specialized Ground Control FSR Extreme. Was listed as having a few issues, most of which a clean up and some servicing have sorted. The cable...

    Easton wheelsets?

    Hey all, So because I just can't leave things well enough alone, I'm looking at upgrading the wheels on my Anthem. Currently it's got the stock Mavic 819 rims with an XT front hub and DT Swiss rear. Has anyone any experience with Easton wheels, particularly the EA70? They're bloody cheap on...

    XC Finally, a real bike. Anthem.

    It's arrived and put together. Just need to find the leak in the front tyre, damn tubeless. Had a quick spin on it and it's a good thing, taking it out tomorrow for a real ride to see how many times I can come off.

    Advice please.

    So, I'm at a bit of a crossroads. Have a 2014 Specialized Hardrock Disc 29er (picked up dirt cheap) with Reba forks and a couple of other nice bits. I also have an XT drivetrain on the way for it so it should be a decent thing. Now I'm asking myself if it's worth it, or do I put all the...

    Raceline Comp. Old school cool or fool?

    So, looking for something I can take on the train with me (29er no fit, thanks Vline) and this popped up. It's a bit rough but I'm a little sentimental on Raceline, back when I was riding as a young lad...

    Hi All, New here, obviously. I'm just getting back into riding as a bit of fun, commuting and cross training for my running after about a 15 year lay off. Anyway, I'm from the Ballarat area (yeah I know) and have picked up a barely ridden 2014 Specialized Hardrock Disc 29er for not much...
