    KS Rage-i dropper - any good?

    Anyone had any experience with the KS Rage-i dropper post? Are they good, or shit? Looking for a cheap 31.9/125mm for the son's bike and can get one of these KS jobs new for $140 so was thinking it would be worth a try.

    Pike Ultimate

    So this article appeared on PB - apparently a new super-dooper Pike spotted in the wild... Any guesses as to what's going to be different compared with the current model, and how much extra $ram are going to expect us to fork out for it?

    NSW New trail near Ballina (Uralba)?

    Obscure one, probably of little interest to 99.9% of 'burners... I was driving from Lismore to Ballina over the weekend and noticed some newly cut mtb trail on the northern side of the Bruxner highway here. There looks to be an old quarry just NE of this location and a dirt road leading off the...

    Electronic shifting - any 1x drivetrain

    Clicked on an ad the other day and came across this: https://www.archercomponents.com Aftermarket e-shifting for mtb 1x drivetrain. Can't say I'd ever be tempted and the photo showing how the actuator mounts on the rear triangle looks problematic - more weight at rear wheel, prone to slipping...

    1 x 12 on Shimano Freehub

    Just came across a vid showing a 1x12 conversion using a GX Eagle shifter/derailleur/chain and a Sunrace MZ90 11-50T 12-speed cassette on a standard Shimano freehub. The Sunrace cassette at 560g is about 110g heavier than the 460g GX Eagle cassette, but about half the price. Anyone done this...

    [STOLEN] Adelaide - Giant XTC 2 27.5 (MY14)

    So I've been working in Adelaide the last 6 months and have been commuting on the hardtail until this afternoon when some arsehole pinched it from work (locked up within a construction site office compound out of sight of the general public so suspecting an 'inside' job). Bike: 2014 Giant XTC 2...

    Question for the Mechanics - Lubes

    I'm trying to put together a few bits and pieces to allow me to properly maintain my bikes; to save a few bucks and know that the job is done 'the way I want' - not necessarily 'right' though! Whilst I'm cool with understanding what the general tools are that I'll need to start collecting...

    Something new(ish) from Focus suspension-wise?

    I was killing a bit of time and having a drool on the Focus website earlier and came across this: http://www.focus-bikes.com/au/en/technology/focus-optimized-linkage-design.html It looks like Focus are going for a trunnion mount shock, a single pivot one piece rear triangle with a funky shock...
