    Zelvy Relaunched (ZLV)

    Had two sets, one with nipple issues until I got rebuilt and the other set got some weird delamination in the rear carbon. Kept using the second set until I plowed the front rim into a square edged rock at 40kmh and really wrecked it, but that was definitely my fault so I'll give that set a...

    QLD Turner Czar XL SOLD

    Miss my Czar. Been wondering if the DW Link on the new Pivot Mach 4 SL it's similar in feel. Would love the more progressive geometry with the same ride. Good luck with the sale, if it was a large I'd almost buy it just to have another one[emoji28]

    What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    Shook down the new build. Thinking I need to move everything forward. So going a zero offset post and longer with the stem. Otherwise, feels pretty damn smooth for a full rigid bike. But my comparison is a fairly stiff 100/100mm xc bike so take that as you will. Found a friend hanging out at a...

    More painful when I decide to spend some money on it and go singlespeed[emoji1]

    Yeah this things a 2013 vintage, however you can source different dropouts easily enough from either Vassago or Paragon themselves

    What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    I've got the flat bit down pat, kinda why I think geared works better here as it's either a ripping tailwind or a brutal headwind And I mean it, I've got a regular 50km MTB loop that has abour 50m of elevation total lol

    Already have that going on with this whole "trying out running" thing. Good to know singlespeeding will only add to that issue[emoji23]

    What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    New toy has shown up. Mocked up to see if a Niner rigid fork I bought a few years ago will work (short steerer) and all looks good. Going to run geared for now but I'll look into taking advantage of the siding dropouts and see if trying singlespeed will turn me into a craft beer sipping...

    What does your day look like?

    Hard to tell from picture I guess Rowtrac Magnum Rowtrac Steiger Price difference of a couple of hundred grand. So if you don't need the capabilities of the Steiger, you can save some coin. Plus the tractor is more versatile for things like spreading or spraying

    What does your day look like?

    Correct! Most mid range stuff will be like that if it's got a steering axle. Once you go articulated then tracks front and rear is no problems. But the idea is obviously less compaction with more surface area. Fairly popular around here with the 3m control traffic guys

    MTB Apparel - What's most important?

    An example would be Kitsbow Clothing. I'm not a fan of everything they do and I don't own any of their gear, but I've heard good things.

    MTB Apparel - What's most important?

    Plain design, subdued colours, nice fit. Cost matters but I'll pay more if it looks good, fits well and it doesn't look like I'm a walking advertisement.

    Single chainset obsession?

    I thought the same re dinner plate cassettes. But every time I've got up I've found myself using it every now and again to keep the watts from going too high on bigger days. Going up in chainring size increases drivetrain efficiency too so as you go up in the rear, you can go a bigger chainring...
