Might pick up something cheaper in a cassette for his back up wheels though. Either Deore or SLX….if not something off brand or used GX eagle.

the vaccine booking system. cant book slot one with out booking #2. there's slots for shot 1 but nothing in 6 weeks for the second one, yet they open up close to the time regularly, so saying my kid cant get the first shot now and find the 2nd appointment later makes little sense. Cant book at 2 different places despite them both being available for one each within the windows. When 2 slots do open up, by the time you select them and fill in the details, they're no longer available. did they get the work experience kid to design this system?

depending on which centre you choose it still says kids are not eligible, even after confirming they are on the front page. so good luck getting this done before gladys expects kids all back at school next month for no medical reason.


just found the macquarie fields centre has literally all day every day available, but thats an hours drive away. would be great if i could take slot 1 that is available 2 minutes from home and book slot 2 where available and have 3-6 weeks to get a more local slot.


update - booked the mac field slots for this week. oddly if i went for next week (school holidays) there's still all day every day, but it couldnt then find anything at all for the 2nd shot. I' completely sure that is a website error but the whole system is so error riddled I'll run with what i have now.

Mrs got a call today to bump her shot ahead a few weeks and get it done tomorrow which is good news.

Scooters carefully thought out plan of pan handling other countries for their vaccine stockpiles that haven't hit the use by date is working somehow.

Shimano 12 speed is really nice but the 12 spd chain, which adds to the niceness does not like non Shimano chainrings.
I have successfully got it to work on a 2013 Cinch W/N but you may suffer chainsuck due to the chains inner link plate shaping, grabbing on non 12spd Shimano rings.

He’s running the Bergtec ring which runs 11 and 12 nicely…because I wanted the DM ring on his Boost XT cranks. I believe this will all run smoothly…

It may very well work, it was @Duckmeister who got me onto it and there are a load of online issues... even with new manufacturer supplied bikes developing chainsuck after 50-100km of riding due to the Shimano 12spd chain.

FML. Decided to jump on to 12sp Shimano for Felix finally. I haven’t really bought any drivetrain for 18-24 months, relying on 11sp spare and stockpile.
I know there’s shortages, but jumped online, assuming someone would have an XT 10-51 cassette and a shifter….
Probably belongs in the fuckwit thread it seems.


What could go wrong...?

From what I understand, if using shimano 12x ring, you have to use shimano chain. I THINK the Shimano chain is ok on the burgtec, but you’ve got me worried now…

My Cannondale came with a Hollowgram spider-ring.
When test riding the bike I mentioned to shop that the drive train felt rough.
It was only after buying the bike and looking at it in the stand I worked out that it was the Cannondale chainring and the 12spd chain not playing nice together

Just use a non Shimano 12spd chain if it gets sucky.

I believe a non Shimano chain will work on the Shimano 12spd rings.
The chain plates shape/tolerances of the 12spd Shimano chain grab on other brands W/N teeth and don't release.

I think I’ll order one just in case, though I’m positive the Burgtec ring is spec’d on new 12sp shimano equipped bikes from ORBO.

Wolftooth 12spd chainrings work with Shimano chains, can't comment on others

What cranks are you running on Felix's bikes @moorey? My memory of 12sp Shimano is that the chain is narrower, as well as the extended inner plates. Burgtec's direct-mount Shimano chainrings should be fine for 12sp, but would've though the narrow-wide wouldn't have been doing much for retention on a 10/11sp setup...
