Port to Port Stage 4

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

I jut rode the new single track that is in stage four of Port to Port.
It was easy enough to follow from the Greyhound training area, but didn't see where it went once I got to oakdale rd.
I went straight ahead and rode through some existing single track that was used in the 2015 event.
I then found it again on the west side of the fernleigh track... until I lost it again at an unmarked t intersection.

Has anyone ridden the full track and want to provide a Garmin track/gps track, please.
The track they provide on their website isn't exactly a quality image

Cheers

What's The Point Of Presta

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

Seriously, why do we have to put up with presta valves on MTB rims? My new rims came with presta valves and I was reluctant to drill brand new rims out to fit schraders. So I got adapters to use the air at the servo and my home air compressor inflater. What a fricken pita!

Twelve months on and warranty cares now zero, I carefully drilled them out to fit some nice new schrader valves. Life is much happier. Using the valve caps that have the core removal tool built-in lets me add stans anytime.

Picking a New Saddle

I am in the market for a new saddle and am keen for any recommendations.

Currently using a Brooks B17 which I love for the comfort but when I'm chucking it about on the trails it bashes my inner thighs too much.

James Estate track.

Hi peoples.

I'm looking at the Jetblack 24hr coming up at the James Estate Winery. I'm just interested in the track...

Is it similar in elevation / tightness / bumpiness to Awaba?
Why - why not?

Cheers.

Hi All

Rockshox reverb warranty?

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

Hi all, just wondering if anyone out there has had any experiences getting a Rockshox Reverb repaired under warranty? I've had mine for less then 12mths and it has developed a 10mm drop/play in the post when under weight and also wont hold the 250psi. I purchased it from Merlin cycles and am hoping I don't have to send it back to the UK. Thanks.
