I'm looking for some engineers or professionals who work with carbon fibre.
I would like to produce some moulds and get some small carbon planks built up.
When I say small I mean about 70mm wide by 7mm thick by 60cm long.
I would farm this task out to some chinese online carbon...
I have a laptop, Acer, not bad cost about $1,200 new less than a year ago.
Anyway, today it just won't turn on. Nothing. Nada.
I press the power button, nothing.
I have tried plugging the power supply into different outlets, nothing.
I have taken the battery out and...
Wanting a Selle SMP Dynamic saddle.
I have a forma and drakon, but want dynamic for the hardtail.
Must be good condition, no rips or tears.
Willing to pay? You tell me what you want for it.

I was wondering what is considered to be a fair request of an LBS?
I have a great LBS, but they don't stock the regular items that I like that I am regularly replacing (eg Conti GP4000s tyres, Kool Stop Salmon brake pads, Schwalbe SV15 tubes, Morgan Blue Race Oil, SRAM Power Cork Bar Tape)...
Things just aren't the same without the pig around here.
It's been a while, but I miss his input to this forum.
Did he become a roadie and go to weight weenies instead?
Did he end up a Yakuza mob hit?
Are you still there, lurking in the shadows of the trading section?
Where for art thou Spanky?
This morning I was on the footpath waiting for a set of lights to change.
I was off the bike, waiting for the little green walk man so I could walk across.
“Bing! Tock tock tock’ the little green man goes.
I step out onto the road and get two steps in when this lady in a jeep Cherokee...
OK, so I have seen this druunkard bogan with no teeth riding around on this really nice Focus Hardtail around Moonah.
I think it might be a Raven Expert (Value about $5,500 AUD).
I had a chat to him at the ATM the other day trying to suss it out and the guy seems to be under the impression...
Item: Shimano Ultegra / Dura Ace, or DT Swiss 18 hole front hub
Condition: Working / Good. As long is its clean and damage free and the cups aren't pitted out.
Willing to Pay: $30 - $100 depending on what you have.
Please - No offers of Zipp or SRAM hubs, shimano or DT Swiss only.
Anyone using it? Considering a 10spd group upgrade for roadie. Only trouble is, all I can find on the net is glowing reviews. I can't find any negative comments. Anyone use it, and if so do you have any negatives to report?

My wife wants a new bike.
Her current bike is a single speed beach cruiser. The geraing and geo is hardly suitable for the 'up and down' terrain of Hilly Hobart, and it's certainly not agile enough for commuting along the bike track and navigating city streets.
Currently looking at an...
Just kidding, need some nOob advice.
I have a 29er SS and want to employ it for commuting duties.
I want slicks / city tyres. Can I just put 700c tyrs on it (35cmaybe?) or do I have to buy 29" specific tyres.
There seems to be misinformation everywhere I look.
Some say 29" is the same as...
•Item - Want to buy one of those trailers that you cart your kids around in.
•Location - I am in Tas, prefer local pickup as postage too expensive on such an item
•Item condition description - Good. As long as it works. A few rips or a bit of rust fine, but nothing that's ready for the tip...
Before I get into I it I will say that I am taking it to the shop for a qualified mech to look at.
However, does anyone have any good techniques for a home inspection?
Basic diagnostics tools?
I figured we should all have these skills in our bag as the world of biked becomes carbon dominated...
What initially began as a select recall due to performance issues on SRAM hydraulic road disc and rim brakes, has now evolved into a complete recall of all...
What foods offer good carbs without making me bloated.
Bread, rice, wheat, weetbix, pasta, every time I eat carbs I go up two pants sizes for about 6 hours. Gives me the shits (not literally).
I wake up in the morning feeling great. Then I eat my weetbix and by lunchtime I have to undo my...
Suspected stolen bike spotted.
May be legit, but there are always a few warning signs that I cannot ignore.
Such as when you see a DH bike with a 120mm stem, flipped to give it a 20 degree rise placed on top of about 4 inches of spacer risers.
Saddle length out all the way, bars rotated to some...
