    Russia Vs. America; Here we go again kids!

    But is Russia really that mad keen for war, or just doing what Putin says?

    Confessions from the fuckwits

    No chance on the old one from his bike, the hose was rusted into the bolt and the olive got seriously mangled getting the old hose out. I forgot to look at the one from mine. I don't think it's worth putting more money into them as is, probably better to start renewing stuff and put these in a...

    Possibly stolen stuff on bookface

    I've seen some wheels for sale on a local fake book page, there's a mix of road and mtb. Messaged the seller the sizes I'm looking for, the reply was "probably best if you come and have a look at them yourself". That doesn't exactly sound confidence inspiring...

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

    Paid it back today, volunteered with KMBC to build a short trail called Missing Link. Nothing techy just a 200m two way trail to join sections of the network. Then did a short loop to try it out, It was a fun morning out with the boys. I forgot to get a before but this is the after.

    The QUICK question thread.....

    @ozzybmx @fjohn860 thanks for the advice. I went to a 99 and found the Fox enduro sleeves dont agree with my arms, the Launch D30 fitted ok with the two velcro straps but they seemed a bit hard core so had a look around a few other places. There was not much to choose from, some 7IDP Sam Hill...
