Oh god, it's trying to be a Scott Spark but without the suspension. Very interesting. Geo does look better though.

I want to buy one of the hardtail frames, but they all have ancient HTA. Anyone know of one in the <$500 range with a 67deg or slacker HTA?
Here you go, 67.2° but looks :rolleyes:

Edit: Posted above, didn't read that far before replying.

Bought these on the 21st June. Arrived today. Hopefully they last longer than how long the postage took :oops:

Wanted something with a bunch of rise for my pump track bike so no gnarly forces going through them (hopefully).

I've been waiting for 2 separate orders to self confirm but they keep on extending the delivery waiting time. It was 36 days now it's been extended to 56 days after already waiting 60 days. I suspect that the tracking is fake as both items hit Australia a few months ago and that is where all the tracking ends.

Installed this guy last night.
Aluminum Alloy Bike Beer Headset Top Cap With Screw Beer Bottle Caps For 28.6mm Steerer Fork Tube Headset Cover bicycle parts|Bicycle Headset| - AliExpress

Very much a novelty, but built quite well and does what it says on the tin (bottle?).
Guess I'd better go get a fancy beer with a nice crown cap tonight. Off to the beer thread!

Looks similarly well built. Didn't come with the fittings to hide in my bar ends, guess I'll buy those seperately. Didn't come with any petroleum jelly or rubber cement to lube it up for install, but should I expect to use the tubeless sealant for this? Or should I get a small tube of vaso for trailside repairs/other trailside adventures?

Non-bike related, but I bought this as a inconspicuous bird spike alternative (the ones from bunnings are eleventy inches long) for the pergola cross beams.

I ordered one initially (I measured and thought one sheet would suffice) postage took over 2 months and I started thinking that was a dud purchase. But it turned up. Installed it all then realised I needed another sheet. First one turned up so I ordered again. Second one turned up too, but took FKN AGES, just under 4 months.

Has kept the birds away though.

I got one of these also. Fits in the bar nicely and I couldn't hear it rattle once I got the bar end cap tension right. I just used the threads on my existing bar end caps and it went on. No lube.

I thought the bar end caps were included? If you need to black end cap thingys then I can send you mine ones. They are unused.

Let me know or PM me and I will pop them in the post.
