Fantasy Enduro - Online Fantasy game for Enduro World Series

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I wasn't really sure what category to use - but Events seemed somewhat related?

Hi Guys

I recently launched Fantasy Enduro www.fantasyenduro.com an online fantasy game following the Enduro World Series. If you follow the EWS then I reckon you'll probably enjoy playing Fantasy Enduro.

Its, free and easy to play. Theres no salary caps, reserves benches or trading windows - I've dumped all the "football fantasy" stuff and kept it more related to MTBing.

Round 1 is this week and the first lockout is Saturday Evening.

Gloves

During the last 3 months I have gone through three sets of gloves. What do you recommend to buy for trail riding with gel inside so you don't get pins and needles.

FOX Servicing

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

These days local bike shops can replace seals on FOX shocks & forks but that's it. Anything else needs to be done by the importer Sola Sports.

A couple of weeks ago I was at my local bike shop, Velocipede at Parramatta, and told them my shock needed to go to Sola and asked what the quickest turnaround would be as I've heard nightmare stories of delays and every day my shock is away is a day I can't ride...

Zig Zag Railway at Knapsack Bridge Track to Glenbrook Raaf Base

Hi Everyone,

I have been recently exploring the Knapsack downhill track and found the bottom of it after setting off from Penrith to the GWH to Mitchell Pass on my mountain bike. I was hoping to find a track to the RAAF base so I could get to Glenbrrok. Does anyone know a better way to get to the RAAF base?

Big climbs / descents

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I recently drove across the Barrington Tops from Gloucester to Scone. On the Scone side is a magnificent bit of farm road dropping over 800m down to Moonan Flat in just over 11 kms. Had a look at Strava and the climb is in there as a segment with a 7% average gradient and a ridiculous KOM time (from my perspective anyway). There is an even longer version continuing on up to Polblue picnic area in the NP which takes the distance up to 21 km and elevation up to 1060m at an average of 5%. The NP section is a fairly rocky road base where a smooth line might be hard to find.

as per title

I haven't had as chance to read it all yet but a quick skim seems pretty positive

Of what I picked up so far as mountain bikes go
Good points:
They did away with the one way road idea.
Pony express trail to stay
Recreational trail management system recommended

Points of caution:
Rezoning a portion from community use to bushland. I'm not sure what impact that will have, I need to read it closer.

Rear tyre almost rolling off rim.

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

I'm having problems with rear tyres coming close to rolling off the rim on my 27.5 Anthem.
I'm running Stans Arch EX rims, and used to run a snakeskin Racing Ralph 2.25, but due to this problem I've recently changed to an Ardent EXO TR 2.25 on the rear.
During high grip hard cornering off the brakes, the tyre rolls to the point where it is about to burp, but doesn't burp. All grip is lost for a second or so.
It happens most rides, tyre pressure is always between 30 to 35psi, running tubeless with stans sealant.

Any ideas?
More pressure?
Wider rim?

Cheers.

Wet weather trails

Wondering where to ride tomorrow given wet weather - any good fire trails in the North? Or thinking Gahnia and Serrata might be OK as I recall they are all rock?

3rd Rider wanted for 7hr at Glenrock

Hey all,

We're chasing a 3rd rider for the RockyTrail 7hr at Glenrock in a couple of weeks.

We'll be looking to go pretty quick and are looking for someone at a similar level, but also just there for fun and to have a good race. If you're keen to have a crack, let me know.

If we can't find anyone, we'll probably just stick with pairs and see how we go.

Port to Port MTB Stage Race - Entry giveaway here!

Win a complimentary ride entry into the 2017 Port to Port MTB race, May 25 - 28, valued at $440!

Port to Port MTB is one of the nation’s premium MTB stage races. A chance to experience some of the incredible tracks and trails we have in our backyard. OK - well, Newcastle's backyard, but it's not that far Eye-wink

The kind folks at Port to Port MTB Stage Race have given us a complimentary entry into this year's event to do with as we please.

While they suggest this could be auctioned off or used personally by an admin fairy I thought a more appropriate use would be to simply offer this entry to the community in a lottery.

If you would like to take part in this lottery simply comment (once or more, but multiple comments will not increase your chance of winning) on this thread before midnight on Sunday 23 April 2017 (AEST). The winner will be chosen at random the following day to give them plenty of time to register. NB: public registrations close May 23 so if you don't win but will still like to enter there's plenty of chance to do so.

NB: This is a multi-day MTB stage race. Please be sure you are able to complete the course and are able to meet other logistical requirements (transport, accommodation, meals and other incidentals are NOT included) before entering.

See the attached Ts&Cs from the event organiser.

... and good luck! Smiling

Erskin ridge FT gpx

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

Hi All,

Been out riding Tableland road and saw this 30km offshoot near the end: Erskin ridge FT, goes all the way to Warragamba. Would love to see the elevation profile. I'm guessing - especially with all that corrugation on Tableland - it'd be a pretty huge day of approx 90km...

Anyway, just thinking..., if you have a gpx, pls share!

Thanks a bunch!

Cape Epic 2017 - Nobmobbers...

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hi all.
Whilst we all have various ways of keeping in touch and communicating these days, this site stills holds great community value and it is (even those on the other 'sister' sites) a relatively small group of web-based friends.

This year, there are a few Nobmobbers (and maybe some others I don't know about) heading over to Cape Town to race the Cape Epic.
Wayne (Dicko on here) Dickinson is teaming up with Mike(Blades) Faretta under the SXC / EXC banner. THey have been training the house down so will go well I am sure.

The Oaks Single Track Status?

Does anyone know what the current status is with the Oaks Single track? I recall part of it being closed due to asbestos a while back?

How is the trail running from top to bottom at the moment?

Cheers

Rockshox Reba Pushloc to Crown Manual lockout

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hi, I currently have a Handlebar Pushloc fitted to my 2012 Rockshox Reba Forks of course it doesnt work so I want to fit a Manual lockout to the top of my fork so my question is do I need to buy

1. a new Damper "and" the Manual lockout kit ( blue knob) or

2. just the Blue Knob Manual Lockout Kit

the reason I'm asking I've read, its just a matter of removing the damper from within the fork, unclipping the spring from inside and then screwing back together and then fitting the mew " Manual Blue knob kit" to the top and voila its a manual lockout ?
