    All my Aliexpress MTB purchases reviewed.

    Doing some AE snooping whilst stuck at the desk sick. They're branching out in copied designs haha. Annoyingly, they're almost always 35mm length whereas I prefer 40-45. (not) Turbine R stem: (not) kinda Renthal stem...

    Sold Unite Co Renegade Stem 35x35

    Very nice stem, and that's a great price. I just paid 200aud for one of these in 42.5mm ...

    Have 6 bolt 203mm RT76 near new if above doesn't work for you. Only 1 spare though.

    Water bottle cage for under the downtube?

    If you do go the under-DT path, would also recommend fidlock. Have one mounted upside down on the Marino and have never lost a bottle. Get the one with a cap (or at least another bottle with cap if not going fidlock), because otherwise you are going to be consuming just as much dirt and grit...

    Happy to lend, not going down that way any time soon so would need to post (unless you're heading this way).

    Newly Released Bikes General

    Neither. I get that they can't make them shorter without an offset/bent ST (hence why a lot of longer travel bikes do so), was just general commentary. 450mm on a S/M is hella long.

    Newly Released Bikes General

    Those are some seriously long chainstays - 450mm on all sizes is a bit rough

    Focus Sam Mullet

    Usually the biggest issue is the increase in stack/front end + BB height (which also slackens HA slightly, which would be a plus for what you intend on doing). Typically you'd want to drop down 20mm or so in front travel to account for the increase in ATC length and retain a similar ride feel...

    Would assume you checked clearance at 100% travel too? Looks good, I do love me a Topaz.

    VIC 142mm rear HT 29er frameset

    She's been hanging in the shed looking down on the enduro bikes in disgust - just waiting for someone to give 'er some attention..

    VIC 142mm rear HT 29er frameset

    Not a HT, but maybe worth offering - I still have a 2015 Niner Jet 9 RDO frame hanging up in the shed. I'd be willing to get it go for the cost of the basically new shock that's in it (2021 Float DPS Performance)

    Ghetto carbon rim repair

    IMO, that's definitely a new rim job (and would recommend alu too for a teenage huckwit..). I wouldn't ride that if someone paid me to do so.

    Newly Released Suspension & Components General

    Holy moly the amount of adjustment. Good luck getting that thing dialled in withing just a few days. Looks good, wouldn't be able to justify over the Topaz though with that price..

    NW Tas, historically I have sent off to Cyclinic or NSD. Hadn't even occurred to ask them - i'll shoot them a message.

    Suspension Setup Sag/Travel

    Slightly off-topic but figured i'd ask here as someone might know - anyone around these parts able to replace/burnish lower bushings for a Fox 36 (Rhythm), or have recommendations for someone who can?
