What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

Feelin' a bit rrranty
Got out on the roadie down the bay. Started off cold and overcast ended up sunny and temperate. Shit for dressing appropriately but great for the soul.

Went to fit nice new 203mm rotor after it finally arrived from Aliexpress, discovered i've bought the wrong postmount adapter. Have a brand new 160-203mm adapter if anyone wants to buy it cheap. :rolleyes: Went shopping, bought correct adapter, and filled cart up for "free" shipping too, because why not.

Passed down my old Amoeba DH bars to my 7 year old. They were a bit wide for him so got the angle grinder out and chopped them.

They certainly don't make DH bars like they used to. Who needs 31.8 or 35mm diameter bars when they're this thick?

Unsurprisingly they weighed in a decent amount heavier than the shitty hi tensile bars they replaced.

I feel your pain. I had a Mach 6 for a bit. Underrated tanks, much more versatile than they look too. Kinda impressed you managed to break it actually... whereabouts?

From memory it was your write up of this frame with an 11-6 on here that convinced me to pull the trigger on the secondhand one I bought with the same set up...
Yeah I’d just got the 11-6 back from a service and it hadn’t been put back together properly. It came apart and the front end of the shock dropped down whilst in the air. When I landed it got driven forwards into the down tube. Pretty heavy impact and cracked it. The repair cost me $600 by a guy in Adelaide. He did a stellar job and as I said it was probably as good as new.

Does the CTS thing make much of a difference?
Nice hack!! I'll just order some new ones from e-bay or the like and have a look at what's going on when they arrive.

From what I remember last time I played with CTS modules, it was subtle, the NeoPos had a more dramatic effect. But I only have the red and the blue for the fork at the moment.

I'll have to report back later if it makes a bigger difference this time, as it's on a different frame, in a shorter configuration etc. If anything, last time I felt that I would have preferred one of the green or orange CTS modules, and mainly just because I wanted to feel a little bit more LSC from the fork. But really picking at it, the fork just felt great, so it became hard to fiddle with because there was nothing it wasn't doing brilliantly.

The MRP was really making me almost feel a bit bitter for having spent all that extra money on the Formula at the time, because it is also a brilliant fork and significantly cheaper (and the Durolux again on that point...but even the Durolux has come up in price now). Now that it went and shat the bed, the Selva has smuggly been sitting there pointing out it's been on a much more rowdy bike and hasn't skipped a beat.

That's painful. Let me guess, it wasn't the ship's fault was it?

Going to build up a bike path bike since that’s all I can do near home.

Weight weenie for days.

That'll be fun to ride on the trails at night....
By June 30 I’m an unemployed bum and will be day riding 7 days a week. Ok actually on jobkeeper and will open the workshop at home to suspension service and will I guess do car servicing in the local area. But still, from a risk pov night rides are probably out.

Gave it a proper wash for the first time since owning it. Only had it back riding since last Friday, got three rides in and while it's always been fun I spent most of the previous rides just hurting from being unfit. Fitness is slowly building so I'm getting to enjoy the riding more, even though I'm still useless.

Already wishing I had a better bike but I need to spend a lot longer on this one before I bother upgrading. Can see me having to dump a bit of money into it to get it up to scratch though.
