    Improving brake performance - Rotor size?

    I recently picked up an entry-level Norco Fluid HT. Overall, I can't really fault it as for what I need currently, it ticks all the boxes. However, the most apparent shortcoming of the bike is the brakes. From the factory, this trusty steed arrives with Tektro HD-M275 brakes, 180 rotor on the...

    12" Kids Bike

    Alternative to WTB Pure V saddle

    Soooo when my new bike arrives, I want to replace the seat as I have a very sensitive tooshy. On my old Enduro, I had a WTB Pure V, and it was the best seat I've ever owned. Very comfortable and I didn't get particularly sore sitting bones. It would see that these are no longer...

    Greetings brains-trust. So as I was procrastinating at work, something dawned on me: I now have Minion tubeless ready tyres, and my Roval Traverse rims are also tubeless ready. This suggests to me that I am potentially two tubeless valves away from being tubeless. But, is it worth it...
