    WTB 27.5x2.4ish XC Tires

    Awesome! Anything that pedals better than what I have is a win. Currently have a MaxxGrip Assegi and DHR. What are you looking at in terms of price and where are you/they located?

    WTB 27.5x2.4ish XC Tires

    Would like to test how different the rolling resistance is between XC and more DH oriented tires I currently have. Feel like I am losing lots of time to lugging them around in a race. Hoping someone has some well used XC tires laying around that need another life. Budget is 50ish.

    Ask an automobile mechanic.

    I once poured a gallon of oil in without the drain plug in. I don't think my dad will ever stop giving me shit for it.

    Conference Room Equipment and Setup

    I was also once responsible for outfitting a client with a new office setup. One of the perks of that is we were able to standardize all the laptops. Used a usb-c dock that was compatible with all of them, and fed the peripherals into the dock. Super cheap setup, used all off the shelf parts...

    Conference Room Equipment and Setup

    This is a task I had at work when there was a rush of people to return to the office, and there was a requirement to convert from teams to zoom. Previously I sourced, configured, and maintained our ad-hoc and zoom room systems. I now do that to all 3 mentioned. In terms of actual usability I...

    Post a picture of your next bike part or mtb gear on order!

    Super excited to try out the super soft Assegai, my current DHF has seen better days. Has 2k+ miles on it and want something new for creek this year. Decided to add rubber to my grip levers, hope its soft/grippy like my grips.

    Proper way of disposing hydraulic fluids?

    Why go that far? Easy enough to dig a hole in the backyard. Let it drain right right into the water table.

    Allaire Conditions

    For real though, is there any way this could happen? I would love an unofficial Allaire enduro. I have no idea how an event like this could be started/implemented. Assume park permission would be needed?

    Need touring bike guidance

    Well am now a semi proud owner of a old Diamondback. Rides very nice, shifts well, and appears to have been very well maintained. It has braze-ons for racks. It also has a 17" seat tube, with 30" of standover. I don't feel like the bars are too close, my feet don't rub the tire, and I don't...

    Need touring bike guidance

    5' 8" I think I can see one on top of the dropouts and one on the seat stay. I know the image isnt great. I'm going to look at it in a few hours.

    Need touring bike guidance

    How far did you go? Singletrack, dirt road, road? How was it?

    Need touring bike guidance

    Assuming I can get this for a decent price ($50-80), and it fits... It is a mid 90's Diamondback Ascent EX with a steel frame, owner says it still shifts. Can possibly put a wider rear hub on and update the drivetrain, or maybe just new cables.

    Need touring bike guidance

    I agree with everyone and the converting the enduro bike is kinda stupid. I haven't found any other people who have done it, except shorter bikepacking trips on singletrack. Most of the bags racks would have to be custom for it to work, and I dont want more mechanical things to worry about. I...
