    Obstacle ramp angles?

    I’m wanting to build an obstacle or two along some tame trails for a bit of variety. Up onto logs, over rocks, maybe a car body etc. I’ve seen plenty of pictures, but no good build guides on stuff like angles. Question: what sort of ramp angle or steepness works for going up or down? I’m...

    Gear shifts. All but one playing nicely.

    I have a SRAM GX 1x11 equipped Trek Remedy. Owned since new, original geartrain. The shifting works perfectly except gear 5 which if I change from 6-5 will click and carry on like it wants to change gear, clicking several times per revolution. If I change from 4-5 it is noticably better, but...

    Rear shock leaking air?

    The rear RS shock in my Trek Remedy seemed to be bottoming out a bit easy so I check the air pressure and when I connected the pump it showed 0. Few pumps and it was up around 150 so I tested it again and it showed 0 on connection. Didn’t seem to be leaking, but after pumping didn’t seem to be...

    Found a video: Mobile Car servicing

    A while back I saw a video of a van fitted out for mobile servicing cars. I was fitted with a remote controlled mobile car hoist that slid out from the van, lowered to the ground then 'drove' itself under the car to be serviced and lifted it up. Can't seem to find it anywhere, has anyone seen...

    Swapping brakes - keeping hoses?

    New bike is on way. Can't work out why they've specced Deore brakes on it, but figured I'd give them a little test and probably end up upgrading to my current XT with icetech setup. The bike has internal routing, so: How much drama is it to switch out the brakes, or alternatively is it...

    Boost hubs. Here to stay?

    Boost hubs 110/148 seem to be in favour currently. Are they the new standard, or something akin to octalink BBs that lasted a few seasons and all but disappeared? Had a browse this arvo and can't seem to see anything extra new on the horizon, but they'll surely come up with something not too...

    Fuel EX 29 or Remedy 27.5?

    I'm having trouble getting into the whole 29" wheel thing, but haven't ridden one much. I'm probably tall enough (180cm) that the frame wouldn't be compromised for wheel size.
