Re: Carbon Stumpjumper FSR

Few updates. I dont know how much longer im going to keep the stumpy, im looking to go for something a bit burlier in the new year. Anyways, a deal came up on some Yari forks that were too good to pass on so i decided to go for it. Step up in travel to 160 from 140 before. I have the offset bushing ...

X Tools Home Mechanic Prep-Stand

Hi, Long time since i made a post. Had my eye on the X-Tools Prep stand from CRC https://goo.gl/jzfFMw . Currently using an Aldi workshop stand that isn't really up to scratch, i do work on quite a few bikes and having to use two hands to close the jaws, the various tubes slipping etc is really star...

Re: Carbon Stumpjumper FSR

The Press Fit BB was a little rough but myself and the seller thought it had a few miles left - this wasn't the case however and the press fit bb was working out of the frame and pushing the crank off, culminating in landing a jump and taking the splines off the NDS crank arm. Managed to press the b...

Re: Carbon Stumpjumper FSR

Cheers chaps, had a couple of rides on it - a proper ride at the downhill and then i knackered the cranks at Brenin so not really had so much time on the bike yet. Felt nice at the local albeit on smoother trails with some larger jumps. Not got much to compare it too apart from an old carrera banshe...

Carbon Stumpjumper FSR

My new bike, and my first 'proper' full suspension MTB at that. Picked up the frame off Pinkbike, swapped over some parts and here she is. Yet to take her out for a shakedown ride other than a little pedal outside uni but so far it rides well - although i think rear suspension will take a little get...

Re: 142X12 to 148x12 adapter

Not going to work, the disc and freehub will be too close to the centreline by 3mm. Will the disc be too close even with the disc rotor spacer? Also freehub being 3mm closer could surely be solved with re-arranging the spacers on the bottom bracket or adding them to the chainring. If it would even ...

Re: CBoardman Comp HT 2012

Be careful with how high you have that seatpost, its hard to tell from the picture but it looks like the seatpost is out further than the minimum insertion line, riding it like that puts you at risk of damaging the frame and the seatpost. Other than that this is a sweet buy for £80

Re: Thread to tell everyone what bike gear you've just bought !

My £15 Specialized Cadet shoes from Rutland have literally just arrived, went one euro size higher and they are a good fit while wearing a pair of On One Thicky skull/crossbones socks. 8) Came with neon blue laces fitted, which match my neon blue Funkier baggies, plus a spare set of navy blue laces...

Re: Deliveroo

Do they do any checks on your lights ? The number of Roo Riders i see with none or puny lights is disturbing. Reflectives only work if the car headlights are on you.... Nope, but they will give you free (albeit cheap and not that bright) lights when you start if you don't have lights already. Same ...

Re: BEST ROOF BIKE RACK

Ive got the freerides - bit of a faff if you use different bikes on them regularly but for the same set of bikes each time on the same rack they are very quick and very easy to use. More difficult to nick bikes off the freeride ones than the proride too.

Internal one on my Mowgli, works great. Original 'shifter style' lever felt a bit cheap and i eventually broke it, but CRC sent out a brand new one with a new design no questions asked. Dropper is brill though.

Re: Summer MTB Tyres

Thanks chrisper I would go for the RaceKing but they are £50 a tyre whereas the X King Protection are £28 a tyre. Was hoping the X King would be good (accepted not as good as RaceKing) so that I could save some money. I would using the tyres in spring/summer on local trails where there isn't that m...
