Re: Very upset

So they have supplied a pair of forks that have been fitted previously to another bike? They could still be new forks? They just removed a set from a display bike no? You have already stated you accepted the travel and decals difference? Like others I'm still not sure why you being disabled makes an...

Re: Banshee Spitfire??

I have gone 29 and not looked back. It's absolutely fantastic for me! So fast and stable, I use it for a few Enduro races too and to be honest I probably wouldnt Go back to 650b now.

Re: Banshee Spitfire??

I have previously owned a spitfire and it was probably the best 650b bike I have ever owned! Climbed well and was an absolute monster on the downs! It really picked above its weight! Mine was the version prior to this very latest model (2015/16) and was pretty heavy as far as frames go. The new mode...

Re: Are YT MTB'S any good?

So first season in DH they win?? Hardly not doing well. I agree it's unlikely he will win this year, but he will certainly be there or there abouts. As for the margin he won by, that's irrelevant. He won, simple as that. Not sure how many other teams win their first season at that level. Arguably Gw...

Re: Bird Aeris 120 V Whyte T130S review

So you are agreeing that the fault is with components such as failed reverbs (not unique to YT) failed Monarchs (not unique to YT) bearings, well one person. No mention of how he maintained the bike. Also you see people all the time complaining about bearing failures in UK conditions hardly unique t...

Didn't Gwin win last years series then? First year in competitive WC DH for YT seemed to be a pretty good result!

Re: Bird Aeris 120 V Whyte T130S review

Um...I have read the whole thread and there are very few if any issues with the Jeffsy...maybe some of the equipment fitted to them. But YT can't be blamed for SRAMs rubbish, they can be blamed for fitting it. But then that gets the bike to the price point! The only YT issue I have seen really is ar...

Re: SRAM reliability - Is it getting worse?

I have just recently been replacing all the SRAM parts on my bike. I have just gotten fed up with the quality of some of their products. I. Ant fault the warranty support, but to be honest I don't want to use it. In the last 12 months I have had: 4x Reverbs 1x maxle 1x cassette 1x shifter 1 x monarc...

Re: Nano X pedal service

I have had the exact same thing with my recent set. To the point where I didn't ride the bike try wet fitted to for 10'days and the pedals had seized. I stripped and regreased, but to me the seal looks inadequate. I am going to replace them with a different pair of pedals now. pins dropping out, jus...

Re: Flat pedal users what everyone using?

Interestingly (or not) I found Saints were not grippy enough with my SHimano shoes. Even with the washers removed. Just made the switch to Nano-X not exactly a pretty pedal, but the wide platform and longer pin choice looks set to work for me. Trying them at BPW on Monday. Was going to buy some Hope...

Re: Has anyone ever been banned or got 6 points for speeding

I got caught doing 107mph on the motorway by the police one very early Sunday morning. I already had 6 points on my licence at the time and was expecting a certain ban. 6 months later when I finally got to court I was given a further 6 points and a big fine. Which meant I was banned from driving thr...

Re: KS Lev E-Ten dropping on its own?

I had problems with my Eten R which was rectified by cleaning the actuator arm pivot (take the grub screw out clean with an ear bud and pick and then apply grease) then you need to make sure the cable tension is spot on. If you have the standard remote the end of the noodle is a barrel adjuster. Too...

Re: Oval chainring

I have an oval chainring, cant say I notice any real difference over standard. Maybe a slight advantage climbing, but thats probably a placebo effect. Cant say i have noticed it feeling over 'Lumpy' at high cadence mind. Not that i'm running hugely fast cadence on a MTB unless climbing anyway. Going...

Re: Strange offer

Why not? not just limited to mtb frames, you can purchase an als cyclocross frame. It's nice that the option/deal is there, no doubt if no one goes for it PX won't offer it again in the future. But fair play for offering something different

Re: Trance 27.5 2 - Now with added Flow

I think you mean fitting a 40t cassette expander and a single front chainring.

As long as you 10 speed cassette is compatible then the ex panders are around £30 and the n/w chainring usually between 32-36t are around £25.
