old school cool, $350 and has held up to a fair bit of shit so far, even a few gnarly stacks. At the moment it's a little too big for me so going to try and drop a tiny bit of height out of it, and see if parts are still available for the forks as they are leaking a bit, but other then that it's in really good condition for it's age

I used to have that Odyssey saddle (more of a couch). Does it have like a 52t chainring?

 

What forks are they too?

 

I just ordered up a Transition TR450, Double and a Bank. f**king BROKE.

not sure if you'll get seal kits for boxxers that old. could look around for some newer second hand forks, can get a reasonable pair of triple clamps for around $300

 

anybody got an old cro mo mtb frame with disc mounts lying around? i need one to cut and shut so it can be bent/cracked

Not sure if I've posted in here or not, but I currently ride an S&M ATF, going to swap all my stuff over to my mates frame soon to see how it feels cos I'm not 100% on the ATF, have to wait for him to get back from a shop tour he's going on today though, which is annoying cos his bike feels really good to ride haha

 

I'm talking bmx btw.

 

Wish I didn't work so much so I had more time to ride though, haven't had a decent session in ages

Changed my rear shock to a fox vanilla ex yesterday, but had to put the old spring in since the fox came with a 650 and I need a 450. The fox spring was a 2.8 and my marzocchi spring is a 2.5, although the internet tells me that a fox 2.8 = other 2.5. The fox spring is about 5mm taller and the fox shock has about 5mm more stroke. Will there be any issues?

The challenge is that you're going to end up with a ? for a spring rate.

 

See how it feels and how it goes, maybe try and borrow a different spring off of someone else at some stage to see how it should feel..

Why would the spring rate change? The pivot points are still the same and the shock itself doesn't provide much spring.

Another question: I bought a wheel set that has a 135*10mm through axle, but my bike has QR. With the nut on the axle done all the way up, there is still 18mm of axle. My dropouts are 8mm wide, so there would still be another 2mm. Can I just use some washers, or should I get a shorter axle? I know dt swiss make a QR through axle

Did somebody in here previously post an offroad billy cart race or similar that they took part in? If so could you post the vid again, I'm thinking of organising something similar amongst a few mates in Canberra.

^can't recall anything sorry mate.

 

I went down to Seattle to go riding a few weeks back.. check out this place, it's underneath the I-5 highway. Clever use of space - something we'd never see in Oz. :rolleyes:

i'd love a disc brake on my fixie. i don't really use the brake much anymore, but i still like it to be there, and rim brakes suck in the wet.

 

 

also i run bullhorns on my shit fixie, so comfy and makes it super easy to skid

I'm just getting into it. Bought a 2011 Specialized rockhopper expert 29er. Taking a lot to get my legs up to it, they are struggling ATM. I get all my accessories from chain reaction cycles as even with the high Aussie dollar they are still HEAPS cheaper delivered than any Aussie shop or online Aussie shop.
