Re: Incoming... small boys bike, Specialized enduro S-Works.

More bike discussion with the boy today after him playing in the woods. "Daddy I don't like the brakes" he went into details and it came down to what's essentially the free play and bite point on the XT m8000s. Basically the lever seems to drag a bit before the bite point. So I grabbed a front SRAM ...

Re: Subscription Button

Been quiet on subscriptions.

For the people who post regularly and are not subscribers, can you maybe pm me as to why and what we could do to entice you? Is the forum not providing something in particular?

Re: Aragon MotoGP 2

The Ducati camp is not a happy place. And I wonder if Miller chose to help Dovi. Or was he told to do it. He was bloody livid ;) Well if they'd treated Dovi better maybe they wouldn't be. But on the flip side, can they now smugly say he isn't doing a good enough job so did him. Mir had a bad day. T...

Re: Giro D'Italia... It's all going pink

Ooooft, big battle now with the top 2 sharing the exact same time going into the final stage of a 15km TT.

I'm honestly not sure what way this will go, but can see it being very very close.

Re: Incoming... small boys bike, Specialized enduro S-Works.

So the 40mm stem arrived and has been fitted. Along with a bit of rotation on the bars as they were angled too far back. Re-adjusted the brakes and shifter/dropper levers and he's ready to play again https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50523947201_4b8c33f25e_b.jpg 2020-10-24_03-11-34 by Steve Weeks ...

Re: Giro D'Italia... It's all going pink

Photo of the day from yesterday's Giro stage for me. Without seeing Kelderman's face I can almost imagine the internal despair as you see the front of the race going up the road, twinned with the view of some of the torture to come http://www.steephill.tv/2020/giro-d-italia/photos/stage-18/#189-_FF...

I flogged his Ant+ dropper, his cabled one is on the bike. Currently pointless as he can't use it due to being slightly large for him, but it'll get used eventually

42bhp is about what my 610 Husqvarna made, DRZs are low 30s (about the same as an XR600)
They make a 390 adv

Re: Ktm 790 being dropped 2021

MAkes sense.... no point having 2 so closely matched.

Suspension, brakes, etc, should take off the required amount.

Sounds like and even looking at ebay, looks like a cracking time to buy a 790.
