    Douche Listing of the Day - Post them here.

    Maybe I should do what everyone else does on facebook and ask if its still available . Vee brake back and I`d shudder to think what`s on the front .

    Bargain buys thread

    I`m looking for an RD-M5100 11 speed so sent Shimano an email enquiring when stock would be available here . I got a reply the next day which actually surprised me . Maybe all their stock is coming at the same time but may be worth sending them an E . Hi Mario, Thank you for contacting Shimano...

    The Mitas / Rubena sealant ? I had one do that when I had to use a CO2 canister one night . I couldn`t figure out what the sound was after we kept riding . Changed tyre a few rides later and found what you found . Then the sound made sense .

    I considered these but then stuck to getting some more Gilas . Gilas only available overseas though . Would be interested in a ride report once you`ve had some time on them .

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

    Yeah , had done that and its not too bad . If I`m using that gear ( which is not often apart from certain XC courses ) then I`m climbing a lot and more often than not suspension is locked . I had meant to buy the derailleur also - but guess what - out of stock , as I`d like to swap to 32 and 34...

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

    Was going to buy a dinner plate Sunrace cassette for the Mondraker but sold out almost everywhere . Then stumbled across the Shimano csm5100 11-51 in stock at MTB direct at a good price . Did some searching on the net to see what sort of feedback and see what derailleurs can run with it ...

    Finishing with 459 . Looking back the last couple years and spent a lot of time off the bike from bad injuries . 2018 was pretty much a write off after the achilles . 2019 was going ok until August ( 2327 km ) - a front wheel wash out at 56 km resulted in a torn AC , rotator . Recovery was going...

    Cheap Droppers

    Well I need an internal dropper for a Merida big 9 . Trouble is I need a short insertion due to bottle cage nutsert . I have 230mm before hitting the nutsert .
