knowing if you’re not sitting with your finger on the button when entries open, it will be sold out in minutes.
Same here @moorey, entries open 18:30, its basically 90% sold out in the first 15 minutes.

I know a load of kids who have split families and its a real disappointment to the kids, mum/dad doesn't sign them up as its mum/dads week to have them. I speak to some of them spectating and to see their little faces and disappointment is shithouse.

Not having that dedicated parent with their finger on the button :(

That bites. I think it’s the new norm. I know so many people who are theoretically keen to try the sport, but aren’t fussed about rushing for a spot. We’ve been lucky. It’s hectic AF.

Is a real bear
When I first looked into 12 speed, I needed a 8120 derailleur for the 45t. I got an 9120 to get me out of trouble. As it turned out 8100 is fine on 45 anyway. I’m wondering why we never got them?
I haven’t read your link yet but will check it out
Even though Shimano listed them, I am not sure if they were ever sold here in Australia @The Duckmeister might know.
The 8120-GS was designed for 2x12 and given most frames in the past 2 years no lower have routing for a front derailleur may be why it fizzled...
The 9120-GS was produced for the elite-level riders who can run 1x12 with a 45t rear and seems to be selling popular

Did you guys see the new Ragley BushPig? It has a 3x9 Microshift groupset, Shimano Altus brakes (with Deore levers), 680x50mm Answer Protapers, and Hunt wheels running 2.8 Rekon out back and a 2.3 Ardent Race up front. It's sick. Sold out already, but word on the FB groups is there's going to be a new limited drop of hot pink ones coming out soon.

Is it intentionally aimed at the retro hipster market? :oops:

Looking for bikes for my son has been a frustrating experience, I appreciate that I'm not shopping at a level that includes quality suspension and light wheels but I'm being thwarted by geography, availability, and 3x drivetrains!

The best one I can find is the Norco Storm 2 with a 10sp 1x drivetrain and a coil fork - the Storm 1 is even nicer with Deore 11sp and a dropper post for $200 more but we're looking at $1,150 and that might be a bit much..

Ah sorry, misinterpreted your comment above as you wanting 2x or 3x and being annoyed by only having 1x available. But you meant you don't want to have to fork out for the top model to get 1x. That makes sense.

FFS, just got a price on the Scott Roxster 24 and the chunts have put the price up over $100!

Norco are the best value brand in Australia right now in my opinion.

Just pony the fuck up. I know you can afford it. Wife will get over it. Small investment now will mitigate expensive immediate upgrades.
Spoiler...it won’t, but it’s things we tell our wives.
Also push the need for safely on a better spec’d bike.

By a country mile.....keep saving your pocket money Hambo. Have you tried mowing the neighbourhood lawns so you can up-spec a bit?

Been so long, I'm a rookie again.

Sign up for the 99 Bikes Gold thingy for $35 and save approx.$200, I paid about $950 for Jr's Storm 1.
