FOR SALE: 2009 GT Peace 9r singlespeed - large frame.
This bike has been a great deal of fun to ride, but isn't getting the attention it deserves, so it should go to someone who will appreciate it more than me.
A few improvements on the stock bike - now fitted with Rock Shox Tora air...
Not sure how I feel about this. I may change my view after the race, but for me the attraction has always been the same course, trying to beat my KOM and Red Carpet times, and trying to knock a few minutes off the previous year.
Plus starting the race in Apollo...

Got asked an odd question today and didn't quite know the answer. A mate is looking at a 2nd hand 100mm RLC fork for his Karate Monkey.
I know the G2 geo is developed for the Fisher 29ers - how does that translate when fitted to a non-Fisher frame?
Hmm, interesting. An off-the-shelf 1x drivetrain, rumoured to be 11 speed. Some suggesting the cassette will be a 10-40t.
What say you all?

By my reckoning, the new 10s Shimano gear has probably been on the market for 6 or 8 months now. I'm guessing it will soon be time where we start replacing chains and cassettes, and the inevitable question about cross-compatibility and non-standard replacements will start to come up.
Unfortunately one of our club members has had some bad luck, and had all of his, and his family's bikes stolen.
In the mix was 2x 29ers - so it would be appreciated if you could keep your ears to the ground for any deals too good to be true.
# Speci Epic 29er. Fitted...
Just spotted this:
No idea on the quality of these, but could be an option for anyone looking to get a 29er relatively inexpensively.
Forgive me if this has already been done, I thought it was time for a 29er specific tyre thread.
Manufacturers are slowly coming on board, but there are still relatively few 29er tyres available, and even less if you're looking for a tubeless option.
Bodin has gotten the ball...
