  • New unused genuine Sram Eagle 32t direct Mount chain ring. Taken off some new cranks before any use (I run an oval ring).

  • 5 pairs of brand new Time/Mavic Easy cleats (10 degrees release). Price includes postage.

  • I was going to write a big long review about the 5.5 but I can’t be arsed, just get one, you won’t regret it !

    It’s the second best bike I’ve ever owned but only behind my Pivot Firebird and its actually better than the Firebird at techy climbs because its very maneuverable.

    There’s no where I’d be afraid to take it, long CX, local woods and big…[Read more]

  • Just watch that Boa against.. well anything ! I ripped a couple off, one against the timber bridge in the little woods just before Taxal. You can buy spares but it’s not a trail side fix.

  • Hi Mate,

    After my North Waves gave up I tried the new versions with the Boa.They were really gappy around the top and the Boa system was crap. So then I spent ages trying to find a new boot that was just as warm and comfortable. I tried the Mavic Pro Thermo but they’re not very warm, too narrow and… the Boa was crap again. I then tried the…[Read more]

    They’ll be 2018 M1700 Spline 35 with a 350 hub the same as these. They are boost 148 on a 15mm axle. They are centre lock brake disc mount which I run with a converter.

    I don’t think I can use contacts because of the shape of my eyeballs (although I might have dreamt that fact). I can appreciate the benefits of contacts that everyone has pointed out but when I think of all the crap and living things I’ve had in my eyes over the years, plus the tears I shed when it starts to get cold I really can’t see me getting…[Read more]

  • After some more looking I just found this manual. Looks like you have to drive the axle out to remove the bearings which needs a couple of special tools and unsurprisingly they are like rocking horse poo to get hold of. Looking like a shop job as the cost of the tools and the bearings will be more expensive than a trip to my LBS !

    I’ve been wearing prescription glasses for a few years now which cater for a slight prescription for near sight IE they help with the cows that are faaaar away ! I’ve never ridden with glasses and the few times I’ve tried off the shelf non-prescription riding glasses I’ve not really got on with them. However, the prescription is getting gradually…[Read more]

  • I have a set of the DT Swiss M1700 wheels (on the DT Swiss hubs) and the front bearings are more than ready for a change.

    I can’t find any information on the size of the bearings, nor can I find any instructional videos or advice on changing the bearings. Also, I’ve tried removing the end caps with some mole grips and they’re going nowhere, it…[Read more]
