    Watch out, I been seeing reviews and rants about those Hutchinson tyres not working in Australia. And those SPD's are the same M424's I own and after half a year the plastic cage is really showning serious wear, any way I'm switching to Egg Beater C's soon.

    Good to see someone with attention to detail. Taking measures on high wear areas like the chainstay and seat tube.

    Respect, jonowee
    there was one without any suspension... and he was slow and in pain.... but it was still fun

    they all had helmets... i wouldn't put up with anything that irresponsible... i think he just took it off to ventilate his head during the rest

    Hmmmm... I had a pair of single crown *zokes* on one of my old bikes at one stage... actually not a bad fork when setup, but needed a set of decent seals badly, one ride in the wet (pretty heavy ride at that) and water would find it's way inside and lock the fork out. Easy to service though, it was just a pair of cartridges with the dampner rods bolted to the bottom of the sliders. It was also a pain in that compression dampening was adjusted with a regular valave fitting, but the air spring was a horrible rubber valve like a football.....

    The worst thing though was then name "Whohaa" or something....... Not a bad fork all up, but as you said, definiately not something speccy.......

    Cheers, Dave

    Style of riding? Commuting + Trails & cruising + xc racing soon

    occupation? Chemistry PhD student

    Does anybody out there have a skareb comp on there bike? and if so
    can you make any other adjustments apart from rebound on the move.
    Because it is to active when riding on road (particularly uphill, no lockout)
    even when rebound is max. Can deal with it though by staying seated
    when climbing.
    Cheers
    Awesome fun off road

    OK I've been squatting for long enough, better introduce myself...

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state):

    Scullin, Canberra, ACT. At the moment of writing I am currently living in Paris, France. A temporary disturbance. Look forward to returning to Canberra and my bikes !

    How often do you ride?

    every day when I'm with my bikes. Except for rain and work, nothing stops me !

    Style of riding?

    Tricky one, I started MTBing at age 14 on a diamond back Sorrento (rigid, 21 speed), riding the trails around the family farm. Loved it. When I outgrew the 16" frame I bought a mongoose DX6.7 hardtail with RS indy C forks and STX 7speed running gear. Loved it. Came to be interested in trials, "rigidified" the indy C by replacing elastomers with 3/4" polypipe, and went at it. Bought myself a dedicated Trials bike, 20" Raceline, and re-mtb'd the mongoose. Time passes and I continued to ride trials primarily, before getting back into MTB on the mongoose fairly strongly. Now trials is still my primary thing, but I love messing around on the trails on my rigid mongoose, now with zero stock parts. Have just bought myself a French hardtail frame, and will see to building that up into a nice XC/trail bike upon return. Mongoose will be a rigid SS frame for casual trails, commuting, whatever.

    That was a bit long...sorry...

    occupation?

    Student, third year Psychology at ANU.

    bike you own?

    Mongoose hardtail is still kicking, I just can't kill the thing, StreakX RCZ "Kinesium" hardtail (being built, looking to be Manitou Black fork, King ISO hubs, Marta brakes, Rhyno lites, Middleburn rs7 duo 29/42 crankset), Decathlon 7.1 Road Bike (Sora gear, for fitness, commuting, not very fun at all), Echo Pure 26" trials bike w/King/Roox hubs, HS33 rear, middleburn rs7 trials cranks, Planet X fork, Echo bar and stem (waiting for a new, wider BB before I change the frame over to a BT5.0 www.btaustralia.tk and V-brakes on the back).

    bike you aspire to own?

    Moots Ti hardtail, most likely an SS w/eccentric BB. Maybe a Thylacine. Support the (relatively) local guys and all that. I have my dream trials bike, not many can say that :-)

    fave trail?

    my favourite "trail" trail is Majura, definitely, love it there. Favourite ride spots are Hawker rocks (Canberra nature park, see www.canberratrials.com > other > riding locations for the best trials in canberra) and John Knight park, Belconnen.

    fave city... why? (controversial!)

    Canberra ! I'm a country boy at heart so big cities don't become me. I love Canberra because it's not REALLY a city by city standards...yet has everything you need. Having bush and trees everywhere is something I'm constantly appreciative of. As far as real cities go, I'd have to say Amsterdam, Netherlands because of the laid back vibe and open-mindedness of the place !

    other sports?

    Have taken up bouldering while in France (what with Fontainebleau a forty minute train ride away and all :-) and will most likely continue that in Australia...other than that nothing.

    pleased t'meet'y'all



    I'd wave but I'm busy in the pic. Apologies for the huge post.

    - Joel
