I took my DT forks and fox RP23 to Simon @ Mountain Bike Suspension Centre.
http://www.mtbsuspension.com.au/
What a fantastic service experience.
Simon is friendly and professional.
only took 2 days to turn around - ensuring I had my suspension back for the weekend.

He took photos of the filthy oil that came out of my shocks and kept the buggered seals to show me when I came to pick them up.

went for a ride this weekend and it was like riding a new bike. the suspension is smooth and plush again.

Tathra MTB Enduro postponed until August 27/28

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

This weekend's Tathra MTB Enduro has been postponed due to torrential rain and local flooding.
The event has been rescheduled to August 27/28, 2016.

An intense low pressure system along the NSW Coast has dumped over 300 mls of rain on Tathra during the past four days, resulting in widespread flooding. Gale force winds have also felled hundreds of trees.

Another low pressure system is forecast to bring further rain to the area on Thursday and Friday this week.

Fox Fit RLC or SID RCT3 100mm forks for a 29er

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi all,

I'm looking to get a 2nd hand fork, so that I can offload my current one (REBA RL) to my hardtail built.
I'm tossing up between the 2 forks, SIDs are more expensive but lighter. Fox is cheaper, heavier though but better internals according to my mechanic mate.

Anyone have experience with either forks and can share their preference ?

Cheers,
Mario

Getting shafted @ Port to Port day 3

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I was 4th in masters general classification at the beginning of the day. My aim was to make the most of my local knowledge in Awaba MTB park where I ride & race regularly to get on the masters podium for the day & into the top 3 on GC.
I came out of Awaba in a group with 1st & 3rd in my category & had opened a gap to 2nd & 5th, 6th etc. Before turning the corner at the end of the first long straight of the climb I glanced back & could not see any riders or groups in pursuit, only one or two who had dropped off our group.

Canberra

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Well it was a lovely -1 this morning when I headed out the door for my morning ride. Canberra is great for riding whatever your preference, road, cycleways, and of course mountain biking, but it's bloody cold and it's not even winter yet, wish me luck with my first winter down here, I hope I don't die from exposure.

Social

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi

I've been looking though the calendar and noted that only the race events were listed. Are there any regular social or training rides?

Ive been a long time mtb rider, who has been spending far too much time on the dark side (roadie) over the past few years. Im keen to find some riding buddies to help me get back on the dirt more regularly.

Thanks in advance!

BB95 bearings removal and install

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi there. Need some advise on where to get tools required for removing my bottom brackets bearing and installing them back. Got stuck with one bearing which I need to remove, clean and put back..Any ideas?

Thanks!

Bike build advise

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Trying to sell my bike at the moment which isn't that old and looking as an option to just buy a frame and use most of the parts that are on it onto the new one and hopefully sell the existing one cheaply.
Just wondering the pitfalls of doing this and is it worth it in the long run as Im looking at saving a few grand and not having to wait to sell my bike which is painful considering it's a steal price and put some great upgrades and is all working great.
Any experiences and some price indications of bike strip downs and rebuilds would be great.

Bottom Bracket

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I've managed for the 23rd time to order something online that's 80% the right specifications but not 100% I bought a SRAM X0 1*11 crankset but it's for a BB30 bottom bracket. If I get a BB30 bottom bracket will this fit in the standard bottom bracket hole on the bike or are both the inside and outside widths different. I don't yet have a bottom bracket as I'm building a new bike so wondering whether I have to return the crankset or whether I could get a BB30 for the bike. Thanks in advance. Wow I have almost a shop of bike parts 80% correct now.I wish there was just choice A, B, or C.

Trail Helmet advice

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi Guys,

Looking for advice on purchasing a new helmet. Most rides around the dam and Bantry Bay trails.
Narrowed the search down to these three brands:
Bell Super 2
Giro Feature
IXS Trail RS

Does anyone have or tried out the mentioned helmets and can recommend?

I have read each have lots of pros but these are their cons:

Bell - heavy
Giro - can be hot
IXS - Peak too long

There's an interesting line in this winsome video that neatly encapsulates why mountain biking helps to keep me sane.

Would love to go on one of these guided adventures.

RS Reverb seatpost remote advice

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Got back on the MTB today for the first time in a few weeks due to a dicky knee, and had a chance to play with the dropper post. I like it.

By the end of the ride though, the joint at the base of my fragile desk jockey thumb was feeling rather tender. I think this is from having to push the plunger all the way home to get the saddle to move.

I know you can alter the rebound speed by twisting the dial on the end, but does anyone know if it is possible to get the post's locking mechanism to release earlier in the plunger's travel, or reduce the amount of force needed?

Thanks!

All those who cycle in NSW will be aware of the law requiring a bell installed on your bike or face a $106 fine. The law has been around for a long time, however, with the recent increase in penalties for cycling infringements purported to be for cyclist safety Police focus upon this and the issuing of penalties has increased significantly.

Steel 29-er

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I’m interested in a getting a steel 29-er hardtail – preferably single-speed with option to run gears. Particularly keen on Niner SIR9 or Ritchey P-29er.

Does anyone have one of these I could please sling a leg over and ride around the block, or even better a steel 29-er they are thinking of selling? I prefer the XC bent as opposed to hardcore hardtail flavour. Medium size required (5’10”)

Thank you!
