    The fixed cable of the LEV is a great thing, surprisingly though I haven't had an issue with cable movement, but that could easily be different on other frames.

    I had terrible reliability with the LEV. Time will tell with the Thomson.
    It wasn't until after I bought the Lev that I started to read negative reviews. So far they've both been good though. Dropper posts really seem to be taking a long time to get right.

    I got a nice set of Sid XX carbon's for my 9 year old Norco Hardtail. I sold my old KHS to fund it (well part of it anyway) and it was money well spent. Had so much fun on it this morning. It was already a great bike but this has made it so much better. Will be selling my Cannondale soon so this will be my main bike for a few months. Before I sold the KHS I swapped over the wheels as I really liked the Mavics on it, plus I swapped over the brakes as the original's on the Norco were useless. Its like a totally different bike to ride now

    Always cool to breathe life into an old one especially when it brings a smile to your face.

    What ever is cheap from the LBS Michael Something that has 26/27.5 wheels and about 140mm travel.

    In the mean time i'll have some fun riding without all the modern technologies of rear suspension and big wheels, learn how to ride again maybe.

    Does that Norco have carbon seatstays or are they just painted black for rad-ness?

    Nice - always been a fan of the whole carbon stays thing. The blend of two materials in the one frame ... perhaps that's why I hope to live long enough to become a cyborg.

    Can we have some less artsy-tilt-shift-out-of-focus shots of the complete bike?

    This one shows of the rear a bit better, taken at the same spot 5 years ago, well before the upgrade.

    Hi all, sorry for dropping off the radar. Got seconded to Olympic Dam for a few months last year, then general hecticness as the year ended. Been getting out a bit more recently - finally bought a car!

    Anyway, here's the Merida in the SA desert:



    Looking forward to getting out with the Perth MTB crew some day.

    Not sure if an eight-year-old Surly qualifies as "bike-porn" but here she is. One of the first fat girls down-under and still going strong.

    Probably one of the least well recieved bikes ever, and the most fun I've had on two wheels in 25 years of riding-
