    Bomber Z2 (current model) thoughts? Or other budget 120mm forks?

    Just wondering if anyone has any real world feedback on the current Marzocchi Z2 bombers with the RAIL damper? This would be for a Stanton hardtail designed to accept 100-130mm forks. Interested in this fork partly because I already have all the tools (and spare seals) to service a Fox 34, so...

    Polygon Strattos Feedback

    Anyone on here own a Polygon Strattos? I'm looking at picking up the S4 model with the Tiagra groupset. I'll be using it primarily for commuting through Canberra, possibly some longer weekend rides. No racing. Pros? Cons? Any issues with Bicycles Online? Can't really find anything that is...

    Pivot 429 Trail Feedback

    Any burners riding or have ridden the new (updated) 429 Trail? What are they like to own, anything unusual popping up after a few k's?? I demoed one recently and now I think I need one - amazing pedalling, solid frame. Admittedly this was a super high end build and I would be looking at the...

    School me on PF30 BB Options, Praxis etc

    Looking to replace the garbage creaky SRAM PF30 BB currently residing in my 2016 stumpy/camber frame. Bike has the OEM SRAM carbon cranks, basically XO without the XO label on them as far as I can tell. I've been looking at some of these 'conversion' BB's but am a bit confused by the...

    XT M8000 Brakes 'pumping up' on descents

    Anyone else experienced these brakes, particularly the rear brake, 'pumping up' considerably on descents? I had a demo bike for a weekend and just bought a new rig, both with the new XT m8000 brakes. On both sets the lever regularly gets solid and the bite point moves out, leading to an...

    E13 TRS+ Wheelset Experiences

    Hi RBers, I've read several glowing reviews but I'm just wondering if anyone on here has had any first-hand experience with the e13 TRS+ wheelset, specifically in 29 inch size. I just cant deal with the stock flexy rovals on my 29er enduro anymore (yea yea get smaller wheels I know). These...

    My 2009 Pitch Pro

    Hey y'all. This is my 2009 specialized pitch pro. All stock except for a bashy and some mint flat pedals (that suit the bike awesome if i say so myself). Use it for everything, from xc, to freeriding and light DH. Only had it about a month but seems to be able to take all the abuse...
