    2026 Commonwealth Games

    It's been announced that Victoria is interested in hosting the 2026 Commonwealth Games. Apparently there's been little interested globally due to costs, and the intent here is to re-use infrastructure built for the 2006 Games as well as push events out into regional areas rather than have them...

    Crash cramp

    Not sure if this needs it's own thread, but: Every time I have an off (which happens more than it should), I get a cramp in my right calf instantly, which basically can't be stretched out, and often means the rest of my riding day is shot. I don't think it's hydration based as I'm pretty good...

    Marco Osborne rocking out

    As someone who really can't ride rocks (it's at least 50% mental at this point) I appreciated just how effortless he made this look. And how much fun...

    For a wheelie good time...

    (Sorry about the pun) I've never upgraded the wheels on any bike that I've owned, so my question is; what am I missing out on? Would I feel the difference if I was to change up the wheels on my trail bike (currently running RaceFace Affect somethings (Z30?))? If so, what are some reputable...

    Traction in the mud

    What are peoples recommendations for a winter rear tyre that can handle a bit of slop but still rolls ok? Recent trips to Wombat and Harcourt have showed me that the Aggressor is a little out of its depth at this time of year when the mud is around, and once it gets filled up it really isn't a...

    Crank length and angle headsets (or 2 questions, 1 thread)

    Having spent last weekend watching on as my pedals and the local rocks got to know each other intimately; I feel it's time to ask, will switching to 170 or even 165mm cranks have an adverse effect on anything (pedaling, geometry, attraction from the opposite sex)? Or is changing out cranks not...

    Street/park/jumps bike help

    Might not be the best place for this but the sub-forum seems dead..... My 7 year old has started showing an interest in skating, and I’ve realised that I’m far more likely to take him to skate park so he can practice being Tony Hawk if I’ve got something to do rather than just stand around and...

    Getting arsey (a saddle thread)

    Bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question, but what are people's thoughts on good, comfortable saddles? I have a WTB Vault Pro that I really don't enjoy sitting so am looking to swap out. Another bike has a SDG Circuit which I don't mind, but I'm assuming there's got to be something...

    Which trail bike? Django/Sight/Fuel

    Hi all, Any thoughts/comments on which of the following to choose? Looking for a 'fun' bike that will be used for riding all around Vic (and potentially elsewhere) up until the terrain turns into "shuttle day" territory and I'll use my Strive instead. I'm a terrible climber so any additional...
