My 2015 Norco Sight came out with SRAM 11 speed running gear. It had a 10/42 cassette and a 32 tooth chain ring and XD driver. A while back I wanted a better climbing gear, when the first cassette was toast, I redid the drive train and used a E-thirteen cassette to give me a 46 tooth climbing...
The latest Tassie mountain bike offering has just opened!
The Oonah Hill Trail is a purpose-built trail that carves through open button grass hills, down into tea tree forest and past old mining structures on the outskirts of Zeehan.
I'm heading down on Sunday to check it out :D
Anyone doing the challenge?
I crossed off day one with a 5:30am ride in the pissing rain :D

I've been involved with this project the last 4 years and great to see it finally kick off.

Does anyone have experience with fitting an 150mm dropper post into a Norco Sight Carbon? Mine is a 2015 model and I want to upgrade for longer travel and also really don't like the Reverb it came with.
My brother has not long bought himself a new Trance 1 and we found the rear Giant P TRX1 carbon rim had cracked near the valve. Anyone else had this issue?
Is covered under warranty and a mate of mine with a new Trance advanced had his crack in the same place.
Also has anyone done a tubeless...
What's the go with Santa Cruz Bronson owner only selling the frames?? I've seen so many ads and 90% of the time they only sell the frame. I know you can buy it as frame only but a lot have the photo of a full bike. Doesn't happen much with other brands.
G'day guys and girls. I'm heading over with the family on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry for a weeks holiday in Victoria on the 25th of September (in two weeks!) an we don't have any real set plans as yet. I am taking my Anthem and looking to get some riding in and would like to know what are the...

Either 70km or the "not so Cranky" 40km...

Great ride 430+ km, 9000 meters of elevation over 6 days
My name is Chris and I have a MTB addiction.
It started many years ago with just and innocent purchase of an Apollo Altitude for what I thought was expensive at $400. I rode with the wife and kids along local cycle paths and parks, things were grand.
Then about 12 months ago I was...
