    Yeah maybe on the tad heavy side. Weight and zippyness is the main goal.

    BIKE RACKS AND CARRIERS FOR CARS MEGATHREAD - all questions asked and answered here

    60% of wheelbase or 3.7m which ever is less is the limit. Over 1.2m needs a flag or red light at night and I never see flags on the back of carriers on 4WDs that likely meet the wheelbase/3.7 rule. My triton which I have a canopy on is a pig for it with the long rear overhang of the tray...

    QLD FOUND (Bought 2021 XS Fuel EX as complete bike)XS dualie frame 26 or 27.5 rear wheel

    Looking to move my son up from his 26" hardtail. He is on the short side of 11yrs old. Preferably a frame with tapered steerer (only forks I have spare currently) and back wheel could be 135x10 or 142x12 because I have both of those options. Head angle no steeper than 68 degrees would be...

    Downcountry...Upduro.....Just a 27.5 fun xc bike?

    On the weekend got myself a second hand Scott Spark. Going to go all downcountry/upduro and see if I can keep myself from seeking out gnar on this little thing. Have been finding my Sight 29er a bit sluggish on flatter rides and the hardtail a bit rough when I just want to go for a fang...

    Tyre inserts - Tried them yet?

    I went rimpact due to weight and reviews. Working well really like them. Didn't realise how much I had been holding back in rock gardens Etc. Previously if I decided to open it up I pinched tyres usually bead and top. 2 rides have significantly had big hits and they have worked brilliantly...

    Confessions from the fuckwits

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

    Suburb bashed 11km loop to some shitty dirtjumps with my son due to lock down restrictions and inability to head to pump track. Rode the DJer. Standup single speed was a good test of lower back fitness. Roadie in the morning for something different.

    Newly Released Suspension & Components General

    I run time on roadie and mtb. My knees have never been happier but they (left leg) can be sensitive to setup. I dont rub cranks flats or time cleats. I do love the 13s and can do 10s yet don't get along with spd. (I was fine with SPD until I dislocated my knee in a DH crash and then ignored...
