    Michelin Wild Enduro issue [Warranty?]

    Gents! Prior to unloading the bike at Bright yesterday, I happened to noticed my front tyre (Michelin Wild Enduro as per the thread title) had developed a nice ring of cracking most of the way around the tyre between the sidewall and side knobs. I bought this front/rear set in July 2020...

    Shorts - The struggle is real

    Evening Gents (mostly), I've been using a few pairs of Endura Hummvee shorts for the last 8 years or so. Between riding, hiking, work use and casual use they've held up well aside from a pocket hole or two and a munted zip... until last week when one split right up the ass after crouching...

    Sick Bicycle Co. - "Gnarpoon"

    Check out this absolute monster. Sick Bicycle Co. have hit the nail on the head with this, I reckon. It looks immense! I really love my Pole (so does ya Mum, hurr-hurr), and I'm completely sold on 'new school geo'. I honestly can't imagine riding a 'regular' MTB again. Some people aren't...

    Rotorburn Ridebros Tasmania

    Ladies... So after a ride with Born-Again-Biker out at Derby last Sunday, we had a chat about the few Tassie riders around and how it'd be good to gather them all up into one place for organising group rides at Derby, Maydena or any of the smaller spots around. I created a Bookface group for...

    Schwalbe Addix

    Yo. Any Schwalbe bros here who are now on Addix Compound tyres? I'm still on the older Super Gravity TrailStar tyres... The same set I've been on since 2015. They've been great across 3 different frames. The Magic Mary front is still almost perfect, but the Hans Dampf on the rear is *just*...

    Moving to Tasmania for bikes!

    Ladies! So, I'm moving to Tasmania... I have been offered 'full time equivalent' hours at Maydena Bike Park. My partner and I chose to try and be there before Easter Weekend, and as such have booked a boat for March 24th. The hard part: Finding a house. We've been looking around the New...

    Pole Bikes - Evolink

    So, with my L Spitfire frame sold... and a 2 month wait for a 2017 XL, I've been toying with the idea of another frame out of curiosity. Something... different from the crowd. Something I've never even seen in Australia before. Pinkbike's Evolink 140 review from the beginning of the month...

    Lower back pain on the trail bike.

    WERD. So after more than a year and a half of riding my large Spitfire and dealing with lower back pain... at Thredbo on the weekend it was suggested I should try an XL frame. I'm 6'3 and the fit and feel is good on the large for the most part pedalling around, but I guess I do feel like my...

    Banshee 2017

    I kinda liked the more... 'agricultural', old-school styling of Banshee frames, but the hydroformed streamlining done on the 2017 frames is pretty nice too! Apparently making the move to hydroformed tubing is saving nearly half a kilo of frame weight. Especially liking the new, simpler...

    VIC Banshee AMP frame - LONG

    Gents, Toying with the idea of doing up a DJ/pump/street/skatepark bike to hone those jumping and pumping skills a little better and have my eyes set on a Banshee AMP frame. Chasing one down (especially in a color of my liking) seems to be the hard part. So I decided it might be cool to grab a...

    Why do you like riding MTB?

    On my way down to check my boss' work PO BOX this morning, I was left with some time to wander into thought while enjoying the warmth of the sun... and I began thinking about why I like riding. Or more specifically, riding MTB. Doesn't matter if you're a casual rider, weekend warrior, racer...
