    Perhaps some will enjoy the irony of this post, it's certainly not lost on me. Whether you think the idea of growing a moustache in November is naff or not, the idea of Movember is not. Take it from someone who was recently, accidently diagnosed with prostate cancer. When I say accidently I...

    Derailleur hanger alignment tool

    For the purpose of installing and tuning a rear mech ( new or existing) as opposed to straightening a known out of alignment hanger is it worth owning this tool ?

    Food/Diet Carb loading

    The Bobbo aproacheth, and this time I thought I'd put some thought into my pre ride diet. The ride is a road ride 105kms long, 1500m of climbing. Its no three peaks but its a challenging ride for me. I know what works for me on the bike but this time I'll try some carb loading before the race...

    Chasing and facing a new BB shell

    Building my first new bike, I've had the BBs out of both my ancient bikes but now I read of "chasing and facing: the BB shell of my new frame (painted frame) I was really hoping to keep this bike from the LBS and was planning to DIY the headset install, no way I'm buying the tools to do the BB...

    Why did you build your bike ?

    Faced with the prospect of needing to replace the Hecklersaurus I am trying to decide between some options, one of which is going for a new bike. Which leads me to the question of choosing between buying off the rack or building one from scratch. As a bike noob I'd be interested in hearing...

    You shall not CUT !!!!!!

    Forgive me Moorey, for I am about to sin. I have acquired a used Trek Domane 5.2 with the integrated seat post. I want to cut it by 20mm, it says don't cut, Trek says don't cut. Why cant I cut it? Other brands have carbon ISP and they can be cut. I'm not talking about cutting...

    L'etape Australia

    By learning the lessons of the past one can have the opportunity for improvement for the future. But how do you learn the lesson and leave the circumstances behind ?

    Project Hecklersaurus

    It seems my boy has been growing, he is now 5'8" and he is looking like a praying mantis on his small adult frame GT. I'm thinking my 1997 Medium Heckler may do the job for him for a while. I suspect that ultimately he is going to be pretty tall. The works I need to do to the Heckler are...

    I'm sure there are some abstainers out there, I'd be interested in hearing some stories as to why, how its been etc etc. I sometimes wonder if my life would be better without the sauce, February is looming fast and I'm seriously thinking of giving it a crack at least for a month (nice short...
