    Xfusion Manic - where to get replacement cartridge?

    Any one one found a source? Link Sports (x fusion importer) wont sell me the cartridge, only a $100 service. I think I can manage a dropper cartridge, and it's weird they refuse to sell the part.

Its orange, over weight, unsophisticated, over valued, has a bunch of weirdos as fans, and it goes down hill fast... 2021 Orange Five Evo frameset in Fizzy Orange on order. Still waiting on the factory schedule and delivery date though.... I suspect patience will be...

    UK rider - fundraising following paralysis from MTB accident

    This is a friend of a colleague of mine in the UK, worth posting here. This could be any of us... The accident that injured him was a tame one - a messed up landing, a bounce and over he went - we've all crashed like that!!

    Sorry, quick quarantine breach - but I need the brains trust. 37mm offset 140-150mm fork - where are the deals at the moment? Anyone got a good used one...? Stock availability and/or geoblocks are making it tricky. Its an odd offset and I really don't want to spend megabucks... Can get a Fox...

    Helping a mate buy his first proper bike, and there are some appealing used bargains floating about. Or at least they might be... How do you price a used boutique...? eg an older model Canfield with older 10sp gear and a life of proper riding....

    Why are roadies mechanically inept?

    And mountain bikers know how to fix stuff? Guy near me is one of those triathlete weirdos, and said he had a Giant Trintiy with ETap on it. Couldn’t answer any of the technical questions I had out of curiosity. Mega bucks bike and doesn’t know how it works... I find that weird.

    Shortest 150mm dropper?

    Giant Trance has a pivot in the seat tube, so can’t get my 150mm X Fusion Manic far enough in - saddle still a little high. It’s about 440mm total length which seems the norm from what I can tell... Anything I’ve missed that’s known for being more compact length wise...?
