As I'm not going to be riding my bikes for the next few months (possibly 6 - 9 in total) what's the view on the best way to look after the shocks and forks during this time?
Leave them fully pressured up?
Deflate them entirely, or part way?
Just sit on them and give them a bounce from time to...
Finally got the bike completed, pending just a couple of parts.
I'm waiting on a chainguide as well as a dropper post. Those will be with me in the next fortnight and I've got to let my shoulder heal up before getting on it.
Over time I've had a range of parts sitting in the garage waiting to be...
I'm considering changing out the 160mm Pike on my Remedy for something at 170mm.
The Pike is very nice but I'd like something with more adjustability, more supple off the top and generally supportive in fast successive hits.
On the rear I'm running Fox Factory X2, but I'm wondering if there's...
Of course the answer to this should, in my view, be yes...
I saw this on IG yesterday. Seems a new Banshee Paradox is soon to be released.
I'm not after a HT but if I were, this would be high on my list from the looks of it.
This may well end up in another thread however I'm having some difficulties fitting a 203mm rotor to my fork without the brakes binding chronically.
Fork: Rockshox Lyrik 29" RCT3
Rotor: Shimano 203mm XT deore
Brake: Shimano XT M8000
Adaptor: Shimano F 203mm P/PM
I'm coming off a 180mm rotor...
Hi guys I found a wallet at Lysterfield today.
Trying to find the owner before taking it to the cop shop later today.
FB and LinkedIn coming up with nothing.
If you've lost yours PM me and we'll see if this is it.
I'm pondering wheels for a bike to suit it and am keen for user perspective. Site reviews can be helpful but it's good to widen the net.
Banshee Prime 2018 running 160mm Lyrik and X2. Likely to drop the fork to 150mm.
100kgs and 1.93m tall. Happy to climb but I'm...
So finally my Prime frame arrived yesterday.. A late day in the office, longer commute and all sorts of other things between conspired to delay the build but I'm very happy with how it's turned out.
Selecting this frame / build was a long story starting with the demise of my beloved Trek Fuel...
I'm selling my brand new in box, Bontrager Line Elite 30 wheels.

Having recently killed my Trek Fuel 29 frame I'm looking at replacements and I must admit I didn't think this would be that hard.

It's interesting (to me at least) how one's riding requirements evolve over time. When I started this in about 2011 I was riding an old 26" hardtail and loved it. Having given the poor thing a tough life I bought a Superfly FS 29" and absolutely adored it. 110mm r and 100 front suspension at the...
Provocative title / question I know.
I'm in the market for an agile fun rig, I've a 140mm Pike to put on it and see the Scout reviews well.
Is it all sunshine and rainbows? It also seems a little costly for something that isn't VPP / DW link especially in Carbon. What am I missing?

I was at the race this weekend (loved it by the way!)
However I believe I may have left in the VIP parking.
This is a long shot and I'm hoping that the event was populated by like minded individuals and someone handed it in / or may have come across it.
It's very distinctive...
Long story short is that I'm playing with my M5.7 and converting to 650b for a test. Might be worth it, might not.
I need to reduce the travel of the shock by 2mm and I'm keen to know if this is a simple home fix, or far more complicated.
It's a Fox Kashima Boost Valve RP23 with...

After a perspective from those that have jumped on this.
I've a 26" rig that can be converted to 27.5" and I'm wondering whether it's worth going wider, when I do so.
The question is; How wide is it worth going to? And are the benefits really there?
I'm not going carbon as I'm a Clyde and...
