Blue Loctite

You know that blue Loctite you get on rotor bolts and the like...where can I get it? I have some of the liquid version, but it's the gel or tape version I'm after. Thanks in anticipation.

Looking to hire junior sales person for a software company

Yeah, I know it's a bit 'out there' for a mountain bike forum, but desperate times call for desperate measures. The company I work for is looking to hire a junior sales person and we are struggling to get much interest from suitable applicants so I am casting the net pretty wide. The company is www.intechsolutions.com.au and if you are interested (or know someone who is) you can send a resume to me at jasonh@intechiq.com and I will send you a copy of the formal position description. If you are still interested then I will add you to the candidate list.

Front wheel 15mm to 12mm adaptor

Anyone know where I can get a 100mm through axle adaptor to convert from 15mm to 12mm so I can use a set of wheels on two different bikes

Which Tyres??

I know this has probably been done to death on this forum but I thought I'd go for an update.

It'll soon be time to change my Michelin Dry2 Reinforced tyres (26"x 2.3"). These have been great for the KC trails for climbing and downhill and have never split nor caused any punctures but the tread is wearing.

I'd like to go for something that suits the KC trails. Fully loaded, I'm about 90+ kilos and ride with circa 7" travel front and back using Mavic EX729's. My current tyres are about 675g each and I run tubes (not going tubeless any time soon).

Front QR Safety Recall (USA)

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

There is a safety recall in relation to the potential for certain types of QR levers to contact a disc rotor if they unlock during operation. From what I have read this can cause the front wheel to lock and I believe a rider was seriously injured as a result in the USA.

This recall appears to be in the USA and I'm not aware of anything in Australia at this point in time but am going to try and get more information tomorrow as I have identified one bike in my family that fails the test.

Kids bikes

My 3.5 year old is off the training wheels and riding off road (quite well too I'll proudly add). His current Thomas the Tank Engine bike from Target weighs about as much as a tank engine and I want to get him something a little better. Actually a lot better - hopefully without breaking the bank. He's on a 12" at the moment which is a good size but a small frame 16" would be ok and last him a couple years. What are other little kids riding? After something with a front brake, preferably not a rear coaster, light frame, offroad tyres etc.

Great event on the weekend. Recent man flu and little training meant a very long 100km in the saddle, but unlike my performance i couldn't fault the race organisation.

Sydney Retailer 5.10 Shoes

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

Hi Guys,

Am new to MTB and switching to platforms after some near misses on the clipless.

Having read a few reviews, I think I want to buy a pair of 5.10 MTB shoes.

Anyone know a Sydney store that stocks them? Would rather try them on for fit, rather than online.

Thanks, Damien

Awesome service

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

Just saying...
I ordered some specific parts from pushys online store, the sort of stuff bike shops don't carry as they are quite random (such as a ladies helmet in xxs, in a certain colour with certain features, a certain brand of chain lube and drive train cleaner..). I ordered it yesterday mid morning.

Low and behold! Today at 8:11am it was delivered to my front door!! That's a 22 hour turn around!! And it was free delivery!

Made my day.

Cannondale OPI Steerer recall

OPI steerers are - according to this notice - required to be replaced by your dealer.

DIY Carbon Repair Pt. 2

Snapped a pull shock a while back. Found a 2nd hand one but it's started to leak oil and is now waiting for parts from Europe and it will take time. So I thought I have a go at fixing the old one by building it up with carbon fibre.

8 Layers of carbon to build up the A-frame that snapped and one layer around the main cylinder to anchor it and then poor mans vacum bagging i.e freezer bag and duct tape.

ANT+ USB for PC and HRM question

Howdy,

For those that connect sensors to a Windows PC using ANT+, what dongle/adapter do you use and what sensors do you use it with? Outside on the bike I am sorted with a Galaxy S5 as a defacto bike computer, but indoors I'd like to take advantage of my large laptop and connect directly to it for video-based training sessions.

Hi Team,

I'm posting this on behalf of a mate who's asked me to help him find a good SS frame. He's a serious rider who's unfortunately been bitten hard by the SS bug for many years. He's been riding Specialized Stumpjumper Single Speed which was pretty good for him but he's recently snapped the frame so needs a replacement.

Tubeless (is awesome)

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

Having been a massive tubeless sceptic I finnally converted the rear after after a few recent pinch flats (drops onto rocky landings). I've got to say, how awesome. Over the general XC stuff there was no big difference but the bump compliance over rock gardens felt ace, with noticeable improved grip and control. Give it a go if you haven't already!
