    Portable desalinators.

    So we've got a couple of island hopping adventures planned and the major limiting factor at the moment is fresh water. Any ideas what kayakers do for fresh water? I've heard of some fairly epic kayak trips and I'm guessing they didn't carry all the water they needed in their boats and must have...

    1 1/8 to 1 1/4 reducer headset?

    So as the title eludes to I'm after a 1 1/8 to 1 1/4 reducer headset because my new frame is amazingly retarded. Forks are 1 1/8 to 1 1/4 tapered which is fine as a few bikes use this standard now. However the headtube is a straight 1 1/4 :frusty: Any ideas? My googling seems to just bring...

    Sram Red shifter routing.

    Is there a trick to getting the shift cable through a Sram double tap shifter? Brake cable slid straight through and straight into the housing but the shift cable seems to go in about 2mm and then nothing. I've tried shifting it up a couple of notches and feeding the cable through as I've...

    The Gran Turismo 6 thread

    Seems GT5 was worthy of it's own thread so here's one for 6. My lovely missus picked up a copy for me today but alas the very same missus isn't letting me play it, apparently there's TV to be watched instead. For those thinking of grabbing a copy, Kmart have it for $69, better than the...

    Gluing metal

    Hey folks. So my Schhram shifter wasn't working all that well and being bored at work I figures I'll pull it to pieces and rebuild it. Hopefully there's just a bit of gunk in there and a good clean and rebuild will have it working wonderfully again. Nope, turns out there's a little crack in a...

    My balls! My balls! I can't feel my balls!

    Continuing the discussions about my pants area. I feel we've thoroughly covered the arse area in a previous thread so it's time to move to the front. For those of you that spend some time on a stationary trainer, do you find crotch numbness worse on a trainer than riding outside? I rarely get...

    The watch thread.

    Any watchophiles on here? Courtesy of a certain Mod on here I've developed a slight watch thing. Never did see the point of spending lots on a watch that just told the time, if I was going to spend a lot on a watch I wanted it to do other stuff like give me compass bearings and barometric...
