    COVID-19: who’s going full doomsday prep on this?

    Yep, out as of yesterday. Throat is still a bit itchy, but almost back to the normal level of irritation that goes with working in composites. Coughing up a bit of lung goo, but again with the composites thing, it's almost normal. I will confess that in the interest of not going batshit crazy I...

    COVID-19: who’s going full doomsday prep on this?

    Reckon my old mate Epstein-Barr has decided to stick its boot in, absolutely zonked after work today, and didn't feel anything like that through the past week.

    VIC WTB: M980 XTR or M780 XT parts

    That'd be tops. M981 low-clamp, 3x is what I need.

    NSW 11-42 compatible 10 speed rear mech

    Zee won't like 42.... It's built on older geometry that officially maxes out at 36T, but can be teased out to fit under 40T. It won't go bigger.

    VIC WTB: M980 XTR or M780 XT parts

    Bumpage! Still seeking M980-series XTR drivetrain & brake stuff. I've found - but not bought - nearly everything I want on e(vil)bay overseas, but would prefer to buy locally if possible.

    SRAM Code R or RSC ?

    Easily... I've found Tektro (including the TRP branch) to be forgettably ordinary....

    XC Ducky's Modern-Retro Carbolicious (or is it Carboniferous?) Anthem. Now with v2 Project

    I want the old one back too, if only for my wheels! Parallel thought with this frame is the ability to hold it as a spare in the event v1 is recovered, as that frame does have some patched crash damage. I do prefer the more contrasty graphics of the 2011 frame, so chucking on some tastefully...

    XC Ducky's Modern-Retro Carbolicious (or is it Carboniferous?) Anthem. Now with v2 Project

    So, as you may have read a few weeks ago, some shithead decided they needed this more than I did and nicked off with it. :mad: A couple of weeks later while digging around the dodgy sites to see if my bike was listed, I found A Frame. Anthem X Advanced SLs are not common at the best of times...

    SRAM Code R or RSC ?

    As for the SRAM options, RSC have a cammed lever/master piston similar to Shimano's ServoWave, while the R is a more basic direct connection. Stock pads don't help, but the R feels like you're braking with wooden blocks. If sticking with the Shimanos & upgrading to metal pads, it's strongly...

    SRAM Code R or RSC ?

    ServoWave is available down to M6100. But you need an allen key for reach adjust (as with the M4100s).
