    What should a “tune up” entail?

    For you shop keeps and mechanics ... Let’s say a customer brings a high end bike into your shop. You offer a “basic” tune up for a dual suspension MTB. What would be included in this and around how much would you charge?

    Need R wheel recommendation.

    I'm currently running a DT Swiss XM401. It's way too flexy for me. Can anyone recommend a solid rear wheel that's not too heavy but also doesn't cost $600+ for a single wheel? Thanks.

    Fishing and MTBing

    Has this been discussed? Anyone carry a pole with them on a ride and gone fishing at some remote lake or pond that's only accessible by bike or hike? I've had my eye on a few ponds in Ringwood and finally pulled the trigger on a telescoping pole. I may give it a go tomorrow.
