    Rim cracks at spokes

    Went to ride home from work yesterday and came down to a bike with a flat tire. Not unheard of as I quite often collect a thorn / thumb tack / other sharp object in the tire on the commute and get a slow leak. However, upon pulling the tire off, I noticed this: :oops:. For context, the...

    QLD Monarch RC3, Ultegra Rotors, RF BB

    Time to clear out some of the surplus parts in the shed. If i'm being a total pork chop with the prices, feel free to call me out. Selling parts isn't my usual thing as I tend to hoard for 'just in case' occasions. I can post at buyers expense. Item: 2018 Rockshox Monarch Plus RC3 200x57 M/L...

    AM Back in Alloy: Spitfire

    The Spitty is finally (mostly) complete. It’s a half new, half old mix up with a lot of the bits coming off the old Blur. I say mostly complete because brake hoses still need some trimming (rear) and lengthening (front), but it’s all there now. The details for the new bits: Frame: Banshee...

    Sizing: SC vs Banshee

    So, it's starting to get to the point where I'm thinking more seriously about the next bike and the Spitfire has caught my eye. I'm coming from a SC Blur TRc in large, which to be honest, feels a bit tight these days. Based on the fact the Blur feels a bit small, I was thinking I'd bump it up...

    SRAM rear hub boost conversion

    One for the brains trust. I've got a mate who's currently building up a bike around a new frame (2016 Bronson CC) from bit of his old one which was wrecked, including bringing the forks across. He's run into a bit of a problem with the rear wheel though, as the new frame is set up for 148x12...

    Mt Joyce trail status?

    Hi All, I've been thinking of making a trip out to Mt Joyce this coming weekend. It's a bit further to go than the usual, so I get there less often and have to plan further ahead to make it happen, so I would hate to get there & find my favorite trail closed or something. One of my mates...

    Mitre Saws - what to look for?

    I've got a few jobs around the place that need doing and a Mitre saw would be a great help to get them done. Things like flooring, building book shelves, that sort of stuff. As I tend to do all this sort of work myself and it inevitably turns into a never ending list, I figured it's time to...

    Shimano XT M785 Freehub jamming

    Hi All, I foolishly laced up some wheels somewhat recently with some Shimano XT hubs - M785 rear and M788 front to be exact. Recently, after about 400km's on them, the rear freewheel has started intermittently jamming up. I'll be cruising along and it just sucks freezes and throws the...

    The Reign in retirement

    I've been wanting to get this up for a while now, but just haven't got around to it. I got the old 2005 Reign (dirt brown) stripped & powder-coated late last year to give it a bit of an update before turning it into a commuter. The colour is the original one I chose, then I changed my mind...

    Replacing head unit in 2009 Xtrail

    So, the head-unit in my '09 X-Trail (Ti), other than being a bit average to begin with, has now decided that the '4' button isn't necessary. It's a bit of a pest and I feel like an upgrade anyway, mostly because I want bluetooth & built in hands free. It's a double DIN unit in there...

    Cranksets - Bog standard or something different?

    Hi All, So on my recent trip to Thredbo, I managed to total my SLX crankset, chainring, chain and quite possibly bottom bracket, all at the same time. Basically an unlucky shot of the flow trail, clipping a rock on the inside of a turn and folding the end of the ring over, breaking 2 tabs on...

    The rise and fall of mountain biking

    2011 Santa Cruz Blur TRc Build

    So, I've had this a little bit now and finally got it most of the way to where I want it. The biggest outstanding item is the bars which are a bit too narrow for my liking at the moment, having cut them down a long time ago to a bit over 600mm. Frame - Santa Cruz Blur TRc - large Rear shock...
