Hey guys,
This is prob already been spoken about, but does the new tunnel they want to put on the parkway at seaforth affect the Dam or does it just miss it?

Cheers

Bottomless Tokens

Just wondering what peoples experiences with bottomless tokens have been like. For those who may not be familiar with bottomless tokens take a look at this: https://www.sram.com/rockshox/technologies/botto...

I've been riding around with the standard factory installation of two tokens in my Pike (140mm travel), however, I removed one before today's ride and was very pleased with the results. Running the same PSI I found there was an improvement in small bump compliance and overall plushness.

Hiya,

I have a 6 years old Specialized Carve Pro, which I took into me local bike shop (the same bike shop I purchased it from) to report a crack in the Frame Chain Stay. The bike was assessed by Specialized and I have been informed that my warranty claim has been rejected.

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.
