    Dbr bsx

    I picked up this bike the other day, from what I can find online it's a hardtail freeride or a hardtail all mountian. But it's been made into a street bike and the guy selling it posted it as a dirt jumper. It has some decent aftermarket parts on it which I might post up later. The paint looks...

    Building a bike from parts bikes, lots of questions.

    Hey guys, I picked up some free bikes and bits a lady was giving away. Originally I thought I'd get the Giant running and decide if I'd keep it or not and sell the other frames but when I saw the frame where the seat pole goes in was squished to fit a skinny pole. I'll also add a pic of my...

    What shoes do you wear for riding with flat pedals?

    Just wondering what prefered shoes are for riding with flat pedals? Will some cheap skateboarding shoes be the go? Cheers.

    New rider from SA

    I've been on these forums for a few days but I didn't notice this newbie introduction forum until now. I'm 36 and getting back in to biking for exercise reasons. From the age of 7 to about 20 I rode BMX, I actually had the same frame the whole time until the bike was stolen. I never had money...

    2003 GT Avalanche 3.0

    I picked this up the other day, everything is stock down to the 13 year old tyres. I'll update with pics as parts arrive as I have a few parts on the way. So far the biggest problems is a rusty chain and sprockets as well as the forks are stuffed, hopefully I can fix them. Nothing special...

    MTB parts interchangeability for beginners?

    I just bought a GT Avalanche 3.0 (large) for $100 which seems like a solid bike apart from the suspension forks feel crappy and the gears feel really clunky. I roughly know most forks will fit with a 1 1/8 stem but I have no idea about the gear selectors and derailers, the brake levers and gear...
