    AM Norco Torrent A2 2021

    It followed me home, can I keep it? I've been wanting to get a new general-purpose hardtail for a while. Started looking in earnest last night. Was thinking Norco Storm for a while, then decided the Fluid HT1 would be more suitable. Went to the LCS to see if there were any available, and this...

    Red Bull Hardline

    Anyone going to be watching this? Looks like it's going to be dry for once, which will make for some decent racing.

    LOST Helmet and Gloves - Eumeralla

    So I seem to have misplaced my red Specialized open-face helmet, and black Fox gloves. Last time I took them off was at the Hurst Rd carpark of the Eumeralla (Anglesea) trails. Anyone seen them?

    AM NS Eccentric ALU

    Bought this one 2nd hand off a mate, and it arrived from SA yesterday. It would have been easier for him to accept my offer before he moved, but nooooo...anyway!

    Hope bleed kit?

    I'm thinking about getting some Hope brakes for the Sight, as the stock Guide Rs aren't impressing me at all. I also have an Avid/Sram bleed kit on the way. Any chance this would be cross-compatible?

    Better substitute for GatorPowerAde?

    I love downing a Brand Name Sports Drink after a long ride, but the bloody things are 40% sugar, which isn't really helping with the stated goal. What's a better alternative that will replace the essentials without making me a candidate for the ol' Type 2?

    XC Specialized 'StumpCarver' 29er

    Yep, that's what I'm calling it. Most of the parts from my 2012 Carve Expert transferred to a, frankly, scarily light Stumpjumper HT frame after my old frame cracked. Edit: Upgraded parts in bold. Frame - Specialized Stumpjumper HT Rear shock - No Front shock/fork - Recon Silver TK SA SL 29...

    Possible Malware issue with Rotorburn?

    Howdy ho, Could any friendly mods and/or admins check this out please? I got this alert when I tried to log in to the forums just now. I'm using Linux so I'll probably be right, but those less fortunate souls using Windows may not be so lucky.

    Critical Manners

    Full story here. Sounds like a good idea. I know a bloke who lives in Vancouver, and apparently the Critical Mass group there have a habit of making complete and utter c-words of themselves. How these idiots think they're actually helping the cause is beyond me.

    Anyone Who Was At Apollo Bay Last Sunday...

    ...might have seen me wandering around, moaning and feeling sorry for myself after coming off on my first run for the day (I was the guy with the pale green Norco Six Three). Got my X-ray results back today, and it turns out I fractured a rib. Which didn't stop me from doing three more runs...
