    Ves 2017

    Couldn't see a thread, so here we go. I missed round 1 at Albury. Had a hit out at the 6 hour at Lysterfield yesterday. Despite getting some good training in the last few months (albeit running and road riding), I was certainly under-prepared for the course. Today my upper body is shagged...

    Tdf 2016

    Convert Rear Hub

    I have a Giant P-XCRO wheel with 135 x 10 quick release. I want to convert this to a 142 x 12 system. Is this possible? I am guessing a new axle and end caps will do the trick? Thanks

    Fox CTD rear suspension

    I'm sure there are peeps out there that know a lot more about suspension than me. I have an anthem 29er 100mm travel, set up feels pretty good. Only had a full suspension bike for a few months. Climb and trail feel the same to me, where as the descend mode feels softer. From what I...

    Is this a good deal? I am looking to get a new road bike, but don't want to spend thousands. I don't do road racing, but do a fair bit of road riding for training.
