On a Monday, just calmed down a very POed S6 for his temper issues.
Story went like this;:
S6 enters a semi-posh bike shop innacity with an RB shirt on and saw posh prices (claims over 15% markup from wholesale).
Talked to the owner/manager about potential work/just plain hanging out so he...

I need to figure out how to get the most of the available steerer I got left on my fork. The current set up is using a Token head set and it is secured by a Rock Shox TurnCoat. The Spank TwoTimer stem barely have enough steerer to clamp on. After a ride, the TurnCoat comes a bit...
Oury grips to S6, cash to some poor bloke at Town Hall, moneys to Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul buncha dark chocolates for my sister, Opal earrings to my mum, Johnny Bluey for my old man, and a bad stare to some IC at Granville.
Missed fishing trip, but will hunt bambie or pumbah...
I need to secure my 2 rides for about a week or two for a hunting/fishing trip.
The storage space is a bit contested by my mate's vehicle so the only way to secure the bikes is to store it with hooks on the ceiling. The ceiling height is about 3m and has beams running from wall to wall. The...
Following this thread, is it a bad idea to drill holes on your helmet for mounting torches and cameras? I got a very nice torch spitting 120 lumens using three AA batteries.
There are bar mounted accessories available for such torches, but I like mine helmet mounted so it illuminates where I...
defy Newton's 2nd law?
What I'm talking about is the basic skill of changing direction mid air.
I can orient the bike in flight to the succeeding direction want to go but can't seem to sail a graceful turn mid flight.
Is there a how to section around here or, is there a DH camp I...
Cyclists, according to RTA are road users and are bound by the same road rules. The article in the paper I read today while having a break states that majority of urban cyclists are not properly behaved as they go about in their use of the public road.
I'd just want to inform the Farkin...
I'm a bit slow and I think this has been talked about before but what's the advantage of using 1 1/2 steerers vs the standard 1 1/8?
I got an upcoming project and apparently, head tube size is one of the deciding factor.
All gears can be engaged except the last one. 09 Shimano Saints are crisp and snappy indexing, but I seem to have problems getting from 13T up to 11T.
Here's how it looks:
As pictured, I can't get the 09 Saint RD to engage the last gear. The idler's has gone past alignment of the...
I changed to Maxxis Minions from my Maxxis High Rollers... I had a hard time fitting them in (brand new, tyres).
I couldn't get the tyres to get properly seated on the rims and they wiggle as if the wheels need tuning.
I deflated, reseated, tuned, re-inflated again but I just can't get the...
that in place of LocTite 243 thread sealant, you can use the humble rubber glue used in patching tyres?
a bit messy to get on if you put on too much and kinda difficult to clean afterwards, but they work well to mechanically hold and (later contaminate the treads) the small non-load bearing...
OK, I've tuned the drive train over and over again but I just don't the right feel when shifting up or down (it could just be me, but I like my shifts to be snappy but smooooooooooothh). My 1x9 DH rig seems to have problems on the last 3 lowest gears (chain is a bit skewed and rear derailluer...
