    Magura brake rotor pulsing

    My Magura brakes have always pulsed from new. Two sets of MT Trails sports with 180mm HC rotors all round. The pulsing is audible under hard braking and I can feel it through my arms. Last weekend while servicing a hub, I noticed the wear marks on the rotor went onto the ‘spoke’ of the disc. I...

    Marino SS

    After much searching for a frame to replace my Niner ROS 9 as it was a bit short, I decided to get a frame made through Marino. I test rode a few bikes, but in the end they either weren't SS native (Norco Torrent) or required too many part changes, i.e. boost or seat post shims (Specialised...

    FIT4 lockout sticking

    I have noticed my lockout is sticking on both my FIT4 forks. First noticed it on a brand new 2018 fork as I run remote lockout on it and it won’t release while the front end has weight on it and it’s damn annoying. Then while playing around with my 2017 fork I noticed the same thing after a...

    AM Lapierre XM527 e:i-less

    Bought a brand new 2016 XM527 mid last year for 60% or so off retail as I had sold my old dually around 8 months prior and was looking that whole time for a new bike. Since then I have replaced lots. Original forks sucked, put an extra token in but they still sucked so they went. New...

    XC Specialized Crave SL

    Been almost 2 years and 2000km, thought I should put this up. One pic from today, and one from the for sale ad. It’s my first singlespeed and has been a blast. Was my only bike for almost 12 months. Bit of a handful with 685 bars, 60mm stem and 71.5 degree HA. There are very few trails...

    Chain reaction slooooow

    Ordered Sunday, still processing and no response to emails. Usually I'm one to say calm your tits and be patient but usually they're fairly good but I'm excited as it's parts for my new bike. Anyone else ordered recently from them? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Specialized Crave SL BB width?

    Just replaced my BB due to a failed drive side bearing. Out of curiosity I measured the distance from the inside of each crank to the seat tube and came up with a 5mm difference. I have a 68/73mm BB so put a spacer in either side which then made the crank bind up. I removed the drive side...

    SRAM Rise 40 freehub body

    So after putting new wheel bearings in my rear wheel, I reckon my freehub is cooked in some way and I am going to buy a replacement. Does anyone know if the X9 v2 fits? It is a different part number but the v1 x9 shares a freehub body with the x7 and rise 40. I'm looking for something...

    New Newy member

    Quick intro. I've been mountain biking for about 3 years now. Started with a Trance 29er and just rebuilt it after about 2500km of nearly pure single track (and no maintenance apart from new tyres and pads!) Full rebuild down to pivot bearings and currently going through a 1x conversion and it's...
