    What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    Did you not see it has Bombers? glorious 30mm stanchion ones too. Ready for your next DH round. And who wants the black brake levers? I didn't see a request for them on every single MTB buy and sell page several times over the last few months. You'd think if someone was that desperate they'd...

    What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    Picked up a mint condition 2003 Kona Shred. Only changes are road tyres and XT M785 brakes which will be pulled off for separate sale. Has only been used sparingly for commuting. Just need to decide what to do with it now. Sell it to a collector, give it to the kids to use or stick it on a...

    What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    Took the trail dog for a run with a mate and his family at Shag Bay. Bit of a super slow first lap so the dog got bored and did a few Zoomies and burnt too much energy. Second lap i was on a flyer and the girl dog couldn't keep up and i had to pull up as she was getting distressed. Funny to...

    All my Aliexpress MTB purchases reviewed.

    typical asian sizing chart unfortunately. 56 chest for XL and 68-76kgs. That's a medium sized Western Male. 73cm isn't going to be long enough for a 6 foot bloke. That's why we went full custom sizing so that we could get gear that actually fits properly.

    Little Things You Hate

    Yeah were with Shannon's had issue's with one male staff member on their claims line but the other couple we spoke to were good. Police report, witness statement and insurer are all backing her claim and it has been confirmed she is not at fault. Have a hire car but it's just disappointing to...

    Little Things You Hate

    Never a big fan of motorbike riders but one fuckhead last night decides to overtake the missus, in a 50 zone, whilst she's turning right. Her HRV'S drivers door, front guard, mirror and front right wheel is proper fucked as is his wrist apparently. Of course because he's uninsured hes trying to...

    Confessions from the fuckwits

    Structural rigidity? Don't forget that either. Jokes aside thats only the first, well second time ive done it. With my shitty old mazda 3 its the best and easiest one to transport my bike. Have seen and heard of plenty of bikes coming off all manner of Tow bar racks and getting damaged on...

    Confessions from the fuckwits

    Joined the prestigious club of people who carry their bike on the roof of their car and then drive into shit. Thankfully only the handlebars hit but still managed to rip the brake lever clean off. Hoping to not find any other incidental damage but still frustrating as im half way though a 2...

    Trip to Tassie advice

    What sort of riding and what fitness level? You driving to the trailhead or riding? North south is well worth it. The climb from glenorchy is a gradual grind for 60-90 minutes (or 120+ if you're slow like me) then a really fun 40 minute descent. South Hobart is much more technical and...

    Black Dogs and mental shit in general

    That's a tough one man and always a kick square in the nuts. Your analogy is bang on too, getting rejected for a job you desperately want is often as bad as a relationship breakdown, after all we actually spend more time at work than with the people and things we actually care about. It never...

    Black Dogs and mental shit in general

    Being on the spectrum is in no way related to mental health (sorry: mental shit in general) nor having personality deficiencies. You will find, if you took the time, that most people on the spectrum are very much happier than most because they don't process emotions like everyone else does so...

    NSW 26” Wheelset or Hubs and Rims

    i'm pretty sure that's its irrelevant now but yes they were disc rims, no I didn't say they were rim brake rims, just they were 317 "rims" and I'm absolutely certain I sold them way back in january which was when this post was from.

    The last movie you've last watched last

    Coming to America 2 0/10 Watch it if you enjoy casual and direct racism, sexism, misogyny rape, cultural appropriation and think 1984 was the peak of modern culture.
