Hi All,

I am looking for some feedback from people who use Bike Boxes/Bags for transporting their bikes, particularly by air. I'd be really keen to hear what solutions people with larger framed, full-suspension bikes have, particular 29ers. I have a Cannondale Scalpel 29er in an XL frame and am searching for a bike box/bag that I can get it into with out have to break it into its component pieces. I think I would prefer a hard/semi hard case to offer a little more protection for the bike.

Flats

This should be interesting... He he. Discuss.

"Being pro-flats isn’t the same as being anti-clipless and misapplying either pedal system in the name of blind ideology isn’t helping advance our sport as a whole."

Endurance Info

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

I am currently training for my first solo 8 hour in November. I've been searching the net for a few months now trying to get some 'tips' for endurance events, but I'm not finding a lot of info. A small 3-part series by Mark Fenner has been handy for training.

Anyone know of any good mtb specific websites or books? 'Ed Rides Bikes' is a great read, but not a whole lot of inside knowledge.

Mountain Bike Australia Mag

I've just noticed that 'Mountain Bike Australia' Magazine is now available for digital download on 'Zinio.' I have been quite happy using Zinio for the last few months - particularly a subscription to 'Surfer' & 'Bike' for $9 each.

Bargain.

This is not meant to be a promo! Just letting you all know. The American publication of 'Bike' at $9 for 9 issues is a bargain. (If a few of you are cunning enough, you could share a username/password and share subscriptions across multiple computers/tablets)

Jamis trail X3 upgrade

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

Hi all
Curious to see what you think is the better more cost effective solution to a better ride. Currently have a Jamis trail X3 2009 which cannot currently handle the type of riding I would like to do eg. drops, small jumps etc standard trail riding / tech. so I am considering upgrading some of the components to make it a better ride or should I just get a new XC bike ? any feedback of your thoughts and recommendations of parts to upgrade or quality XC bikes that ride well and are durable would be great.

thanks
Matt

Ok, who here ride's a Diamondback? Cause frankly, i just spent $700 on the Axis Disc. And yeah it's pretty good, it ride's the Manly Dam and Oxford Fall's trails pretty damn well. No it does not have knuckle box (damn), it's got front rst and carbon ceramic disc brakes. 24 speed Shimano gears. Truvativ x-flow crankset, the bottom bracket is pretty average. The seat's nice, the frames alloy. The quick release is handy, as it won't fit in my car any other way. So yeah, please post if you have a Diamondback, or for that matter if you are hopinh or planning to buy one.

What would be a good bike for me?

What's a good bike for me?

Hey guys.
I've just started to get into riding a bit more, and I wanted to get a new bike. I'm looking for a mountain bike that will be used mainly on-road but will do a nice job as a trek bike.

I ride around fairlight/manly mostly (although I've only just started doing it regularly), so I want something that will feel good to ride during medium to long trips anywhere around the northern beaches.

I'm just on the border of 5"9 and 6 foot, and there should be some room to grow (I turned 16 last month).
