    All my Aliexpress MTB purchases reviewed.

    Gee so even the threaded rod is not a standard size. Bloody Fox.. I was about to just go down to local nuts and bolts business to get a long nut. However, i do wonder now whether something like a wooden dowel will do the job. They just have to be about the same size as the rod? So not too small...

    It is! Unfortunately it is way too big for me. I wish I can stretch myself taller.

    Electric Vehicles etc

    We have had the base model polestar 2 for just under a year now. Live just outside of metro Melbourne and found the 380km range showing on the dashboard reasonably accurate. We could do a return trip of around 280km for riding comfortably, starting with 100% and end up with 20% left. Minimal...

    Fixable?

    A $100 note and gaffer tape. You are good to go. Make sure it is a $100 note or otherwise it won't work. In all seriousness, I would at least tape it with some patches (or one of those bacon strips if they are not too small) and run tube. Tyres are so expensive these days, can't keep on...

    VIC Syntace W35 26" rim

    Absolutely nothing wrong with 26ers. I just no longer have 26er to justify keeping this rim forever. Would prefer it to go to someone who will use it. It's a great rim. I'm running multiple 27.5 version of it myself.

    Ah ofc! I've been riding silvan 2-3 times a week, have seen many different species of wildlife (not snakes), but not koala or lyrebirds! Perhaps one day I will.

    The bike industry crisis

    I do think brexit has a lot to do with the UK based companies folding, which is a shame as I bought loads from them. Very competitive (and I must say, sensible) pricing and generous postage price. Shame. Not only that. Cost of living going up through the roof mean peeps cutting back on...

    His/her lost your gain @TheAzza ! I test rode the Druid v2 and Dreadnought when I was in Switzerland 3 odd months ago, and loved it. Forbidden did something special with their linkage system there. I've never ridden anything like their bike before, and I have had a few. The delay of the...
