STOLEN - Specialized Epic Expert 2012

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

What a day. Help a seriously injured fellow MTB rider who had to be taken by ambulance out of Mt Narra only to then have my bike stolen from my unit balcony (4m up) at Manly whilst drying after a post ride wash. The theft happened between 2pm and 11pm. Very brazen theft considering my balcony faces a major busy road with high pedestrian activity.

The first photo is the original bike the second includes most of the upgrades minus the XTR brakes.

Details as follows

• New XTR brakes with 205/180 Shimano Ice-tech rotors

Glenfield to Wedderburn trail proposal

Thought I'd put this here.

There is a petition opposing this proposal, so there is also the one below supporting it.

Get it out to as many friends as possible!

Seat Fitting

So, my seat on both the MTB and roadie are causing significant numbness in the front carriage. I have written a letter to Santa's Minister and they have agreed to a new seat Eye-wink Question is, where can I go to get an assessment of the type of seat that suits my anatomical needs?

I am located on the Northern Beaches but can travel if need be.

Anybody do the Fling this year? It's not even in the Calendar. I was hoping to read a few Fling exploits to ease the pain of missing it this year...

Weather page

Not sure how many people use the weather page on NobMob but it's no longer working. I really found it useful, any chance it can be fixed/turned back on? Only if it's not too much trouble...

Shimano equivalents

Can anyone help me figure out a shimano (or quality non-SRAM) version of their X1 11 speed chain and sram 10-42t 11 speed xd cassette? Chain reacton and wiggle don't seem to stock sram anymore and I can't find these parts.

So the Duke has a Guardian

Has anyone noticed they are being swooped while riding up Daisy Duke? It's not obvious, like when you're being attacked by a Magpie. This bird is a silent assassin; all you hear is this rush of air as it hurtles past you, disappearing into the trees.

Previously I've only ever caught sight of a brown/grey flash, right after it flew by. Today when it attacked, I ducked, went OTB, but then managed to catch sight of it sitting in a nearby tree, looking proud of what it had just achieved.

Seems to be some sort of small raptor like a kite, hawk, falcon, etc.

Anyone else seen this bird?

Bike Racks

For school i am looking at making a bike rack which fully incloses your bike on the back of the car to minimise the bike from being damaged or stolen. I was wondering if you could please fill out this survey for my research.

It will take no more than 3 mins.

Thanks in advance

the need for a Peak trail building body and National standards survey

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

MTBA have releeased 3 options papers on the development and implementation of a National standard for Trail building, Trail builders accreditation and the formation of a peak body . The discussion papers and a survey can be found here

My personal opinion is it's bureaucracy for bureaucracy sake and that in such a large and diverse country the 1 standard fit all approach is unworkable.

It's also a lot of money to develop a Standard when we already have the IMBA guidelines.

Manly Dam Upgrades!

Nah just kidding...

They're probably going to turn it into concrete footpath.

Footpath opposite North Balgowlah PS is all barricaded off.

OMV Requires Support

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

It appears the development of Hornsby Quarry and Old Man's Valley into a recreational facility may jeopardise trail network we have ALL worked so hard for.

Please share the following video, and encourage all in support of mountain bike riding to make comment in the video comments section.

Consultation Forums are about to start in regards to the development of the recreational space within these land parcels. Traditional sports are reported to be lobbying council heavily to take away mountain bike facilities in the interests of their own sports.

Tapered steerer tube's

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

I'm in the market to buy some new/secondhand forks after mine came up worse for wear after last week's off.

Bike involved is a 2014 Scott Scale

I've confused myself so my question is..Are 1.5” tapered the same as 1.25"-1.5" tapered steerer tubes or as I suspect are they different.

Bike going into storage

So I'm planning on putting my duel suspension bike into storage for a year. Is there anything I should be doing to it. I'm thinking I should take the tyres off the rims and getting it serviced. Is there anything else I should do like letting some air out of the shocks?

Anyone selling a Fox 36 Green spring for Van R forks.

I am after a Fox 36 green spring for my Van R.
I have gained weight and need the next level spring until I lose weight but they seem to be pretty sparse online and no local shops can get them. Does anyone have one that they no longer need?

Scott 24 - End of an era

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Went down to CBR and did the Scott 24 - just socially. The numbers were down.

My first ever race was Scott 24hr back in 2007 and the size of the event back then was massive. This year it was tiny with most riders appeared to be doing 6 + 6 because the night laps were very lonely.

From 2007 onwards we did Scott 24 every year for a while but have not done it in two or three years so it was quite unexpected to find it so small.
