Product Review Box Two drive train

  • 39,373

Mountain biking hasn’t seen a ton of changes to our drive train systems over the years. Sure, there’s been some innovations of late with the one chain ring coupled with a big range cassette and of course the electronic shifting offered nowadays but I’ll bet ninety percent of the bikes you’ve ridden on dirt have a drive train from one of the two main manufacturers; SRAM and Shimano. You’d have you preferred source of buying those brands and if you’re shopping online then you’ve probably found a great buy but can’t have it shipped to our shores in Australia.
You’re not limited to one or two brands though, read on to find out more on the Box Components drive train available from Mountain Bikes Direct!

Product Review Cleanskin products

Cleanskin has expanded their range of mountain products very nicely over the last year and it’s loaded with the most practical stuff you can get your hands on but the best part? Its remarkably cheaper than a lot of the other options out there but keeps you in tune with good quality products. I’ve got a bunch of Cleanskin gear in my collection already but now I’m adding these goodies, have a look at this cool range available at MTB Direct!

The Cleanskin clamp workstand is perfect for maintaining your bike at home and folding up into a compact and light package makes it ideal for taking away on riding trips in the car. The bulk of it is aluminium with a firm gripping resin clamp that can hold your bike by the top tube or the seat post. To stop the front end wobbling around, just attach the nifty stabilizer and you’re sorted. It’s rated to hold bikes up to 25kg so you can swing...

Product Review Nukeproof Technical Ridewear

This may sound like a copy and paste of a previous write up of the Nukeproof Technical Ridewear range but I’m sticking to it; it’s the best apparel I’ve worn riding a bike. With an ever-increasing range of top-notch gear, you can get a kit that will suit you and your bike’s colourway and have change left over to fill your cart at Chain Reaction Cycles.

Coming out of winter in Australia and into summer usually means you’ll go for a jersey that is lighter and even short sleeves. This will be the third summer in a row for me that I’ve stuck with long sleeves on a jersey and this time around I’ll still be running full length pants on a downhill bike and for trail & enduro riding thanks to the Nukeproof Nirvana and Blackline apparel. I’ve got a couple of the Nirvana full sleeve jerseys and adore the stretch material, it’s by far the most comfortable gear I’ve had...

Product Review STFU Bike drivetrain damping module

Hands up anyone who has chucked a Velcro chainstay protector on their bike or even wrapped a busted tube around it to stop your chain beating your frame to pieces. It’s a damn hollow feeling finding all that paint and carbon chipped off your frame from your chain noisily slapping around but thankfully there’s some damn fine goodness from STFU Bike available to pamper your ride.

You’ve heard of Aussie downhill icon Chris Kovarik, you’ve seen the rad videos of him totally tearing trails to pieces and dominating with World Cup downhill wins. He’s helped create the STFU Bike product so you know that it’s gonna need to handle whatever you can chuck at it. There’s an STFU Bike available to suit any ride you have. There’s a Downhill version for 7 or 10 speed drivetrains plus there’s the trail version to suit bikes running up to a 12 speed wide range cassette. I’m astounded this product hasn’t been available until now, it’s so simple to...

Product Review New Cleanskin MTB range!

Sigh, it’s almost winter here in Australia. The days get shorter, the shadows hang around longer but we’re lucky enough that we can still ride in any conditions. Us mountain bikers turn that sometimes dull outlook into a positive and we go ride bikes at night! I’ve done a few reviews on Cleanskin lights and am stoked to say Cleanskin have expanded their range, have a fancy new website and best of all; you can get amazing gear from Cleanskin and have money left in your savings to add some new winter apparel!

Head over to and check out what is on offer from this Australian owned company. You would have seen the reviews we did on the Duo and Solo LED lights and today I’m pumped to share the details on the C-Flat composite pedals, the digital shock pump and the Unite LED light that I’ve been running for a while.
Lets start with the pedals. They’re a composite material, very light...

Product Review 2020 Polygon Siskiu D7

“When you’re onto a good thing, you stick with it”. We’ve all heard it and it’s pretty accurate. Polygon know it and instead of not changing something, they’ve refined what is already one of the biggest selling dual suspension bikes in Australia from Bicycles Online; the 2020 Polygon Siskiu D7.
Lets say I’m looking for the perfect short travel bike capable of XC laps and some intermediate blue trails. My comparison had me looking at a range of bikes available for around $3,000. Knowing the Polygon Siskiu D7 was a fair chunk cheaper than most bikes in the same range, I unboxed it the day after I ordered it thinking it may need a few parts upgraded to make it capable of some local favourites. As I hung it in the stand and removed the carefully applied packaging, I was pretty chuffed to see it was going to be a damn fun bike straight out of the box.
