What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

They act a pivot for the seatpost don't they? Similar to the Kingpin on the Cannondale Topstone

Kinda, sorta, but no. The flex point is actually down at the seat tube/bb junction, so up where the bearings are it doesn't pivot so much as slide. The rest of the frame is rigid. My guess is the little black tube bears weight and rotates inside the seat tube as it flexes and the bearings allow that more easily.

Either way, it's a very effective system for what I deal with 99% of the time.

And it's the first time I've broken a pivot, Mr Beebenson, last time I cracked the frame.

Is anyone NOT getting a new bike anytime soon? Serious new bike envy lately...
I got 2 in the last couple of months...so I won't be getting a new bike anytime soon.

Why not indeed! I've heard now is the BEST time to be buying bikes - stock is high, discounts are strong.


An absolute buyers market! I reckon it is worth pulling a bit out of your super to get rolling.

New grips and out for my first proper ride in a month!

I'll still have to take it easy for the most part though
Nice. You need the ‘Maxxis’ lined up with the valve stem and not the tyre name. Need to rotate those tyres. ;)

Interested in the Supacrush, keen to hear your thoughts after a few rides.

I've had them on my bike for a few months now.

For reference they replaced Ergon GA2 Fats.

In the carpark they felt massive, almost too thick. But once on the trail they were not noticeable. Very soft, and so do scuff/tear relatively easy, but nothing a bit of silicone won't fix.

Not sold on whether they are better than the ergon yet. I did like the tapered feel of the fats.

The brand stamping is not in the same position between left and right side. If you line up the brand name to the valve stem, make sure it's the right hand side as that's the side to photograph. If you line up the left side branding to valve stem the right side looks askew. Ask me how I know...

Let you google that for me

I need photos! How do you know?

My ride was fucking brilliant! I thought I'd be really shit but bar a few momentum stoppers, I felt really good today.

The Supracush grips feel nice, better than the Deathgrips imo. There's a little more dampening and the wider diameter fits my hand better.

Also, the pink is deeper and matches my valve stems better, the important things hey!

@Fred Nurk had a look at my cranks and thinks it's a spindle or bb issue. Hope I didn't overtighten the bearing preloader or something stupid like that..
