    Bafang mid drive conversion kits

    Has anyone here had exerpience with these kits for trail use? Mainly have questions about durability. How would they handle jumps, drops, repeated rock gardens or even the dreaded bb smash? I'm thinking about converting my Vitus Sommet as I have seen 1 done on another forum and wouldn't mind...

    Where to MTB in winter??

    Hi guys, Was wondering where people would go if they wanted to spend 3-5 days riding somewhere late July and were willing to drive up to 24 hours (From Melbourne). Riding would be preferably gravity based, any place that has shuttles or a lift would be a winner. Mates and I were willing to...

    26" Fork question/recommendations

    Hello guys. Got into riding about 6 months ago so be gentle. I purchased 2005 Banshee Scirocco with a (2005?) Fox Float RLC 130mm fork for my first bike on the recommendation of a friend. The previous owner of the bike put a spacer inside of it to reduce the travel to 100mm as he used it...
