MrNutt said on February 6, 2009
those Ashima look interesting, do they do 200’s?
can’t work out if the dual compound is a particularly good idea though?
any blue bar ends?

Bar end caps will become available after the issue 48 has come out ( March 2nd) and will be available to subscribers only to begin with as there are only 24 pairs available. Get in line now 🙂
Bar end caps available in black/blue/red/white.

MrNutt – Yep, we have a pair of Ashima rotors in 180mm and 203mm on test.

that picture of the box of bontrager tubes is piss-poor.
C- lazy, must do better.
I actually thought I’d deleted that one :-/
mmm ok, consider the line joined! (white or blue if available) oh and if you’re stuck for someone to test those 203 rotors! 😉 😆

Well it’s nice to know I wasn’t the only one who found a top-out clunk with their Thor…

I’ve been running the 203mm Ashima rotors for a few months now, (edinburghbicycle have had them in stock for a while :)) I popped them on my DH wheels – cos they needed some rotors.
They are excellent, in a word. They clear brilliantly in mud, and the bite is, I reckon, better than the standard Hope floating rotors on the Mono M4. They’re lighter as well, IIRC.

Slime filled tubes – how hefty (in grammes) is “hefty” please?
elaine anne said on February 6, 2009
those shades would be a perfect colour for my bike, but in general im wondering people would prefur ‘go- faster’ ‘red’ ?

i run slim tubes on both bikes now for over a year, not 1 flat yet so a big thumbs up from me. only down side choose your pressure right as letting air out gets you all mucky
