    Mtb prices gone stupid: The Renovation, Planning Permission & Fkn Tradies (and climate change and dog breeding ethics, +greyhound appreciation) Thread

    Mtb prices gone stupid: The Renovation, Planning Permission & Fkn Tradies (and climate change and dog breeding ethics, +greyhound appreciation) Thread

    Land supply is the worst it's been in Victoria in the last 5 years. Goodluck buying a semi decent buildable block in Greenfields or regional areas... And that's without the 50 odd percent of the national immigration doing their thing here in Vic. Construction costs in the last month's are about...

    Hayes Dominion brakes.

    Yup. Haven't seen a pair under 300 pound in a long time, not bad for a new 10 year old brake. They could pull up 100kg+ guys without effort. It's a shame that the braking systems new brakes price is so high as they've gone with a massive single piston too, but 999euro was abit much...

    Well may try mt7s and a Mara pro rear shock for shits and giggles. The e4s arent a patch on old v2s in terms of brutality. Coils nice, but I'd like to see how the Mara matches up to the mezzer. Mezzers miles ahead of the vector.

    What Single pivot frames are out there

    Old ironhorse baseline Yakuza prior to the kumicho. Mid generation Morewood, Ram, duebel, craftworks, Marino could do something, old duncons etc. Best bets just an old Bullit and running a reduced e2e shock to slacken it out/drop travel.

    does anyone actually on a bike store here?

    Unless you're writing off your own toys/trips and using it to buy commerical property instead of renting it'll be tough fight. It's a lifestyle that has its advantages/disadvantages. Can't say I'd go back.. (15yrs odd in/out)
