    Continental Road Tires

    So I ordered a set of GP 5000 TLs in 700x28C on Amazon for my road bike a bit ago. They finally came about 2 weeks ago….from China. I was under the impression that Conti tires were made in Germany. Hell, the carcass of the tire says “Made in Germany” on it. I think I already know the answer but...

    Any chance of finding a new fatty?

    So I am fully aware of how Covid has affected the bike industry. I had no intentions of getting a new bike but I recently rode with a few guys who were on fat bikes and I got the itch. If anyone has any leads on anything in stock anywhere I’d appreciate a heads up.

    For sale is my used set of 27.5" i9 Enduro 305s with torch hubs (120 points of engagement). My new whip is a 29er so I have no more use for these. These wheels have typical scratches from normal riding over the past 1.5 years but no dents or significant damage. They run true and I also have a...

    SLX rear derailleur/clutch

    I've got an SLX 11 speed rear derailleur. I seem to have to adjust/increase tension on the clutch about every 3 or 4 rides or so or I drop chains when doing big bunny hops or jumping. Today I dropped a chain at 6 Mile on the little jump section of red between blue and white on the very first...

    Installing press fit BB anti-seize, pipe dope, grease, or...?

    So I am about to replace my press fit bottom bracket. I have read that for the best result (creak free) that I should use anti-seize between the bearing and bb shell. I have also heard that teflon pipe dope is the way to go. Of course, there is also regular grease or I could press the bearings...

    Rear derailleur issues

    I am having an iissue with my rear derailleur. The bike is 1x11 with an SLX derailleur, XT shifter and a e*13 9-46t cassette. The chain is nearly brand new as I just replaced it. I noticed that recently my shift quality was deteriorating a bit and certain gears were a bit noisy (middle of the...

    Thread locker on b screw?

    I have a Shimano SLX 11 speed rear derailleur. I have had to tighten the b screw every 5 or 6 rides as it backs out slowly on it's own. I notice this when the guide pulleys interfere with the second largest cog on the cassette. Is there a reason I shouldn't put thread locker on it and just be...

    On bike tool storage

    I am very intrigued by some of the tools that incorporate into the bike in some way. I currently ride with a hydration pack and I carry a tube, multitool, first aide kit, quick links, zip ties, a pump, and water. It doesn't bother me too much but I imagine the freedom of riding without a pack...

    Pike air spring

    So my new bike has a 2018 Pike RC fork (150mm). Before my ride today I grabbed my shock pump and hooked it up to the air spring and determined I should put in a couple psi. Well 1 stroke of my shock pump (Bontrager) increased the pressure by about 30 psi. I am thinking this is not normal...

    2018 Giant Anthem 2 - Large - SOLD

    For sale is my size large 2018 Giant Anthem 2, 27.5 in blue/orange. The bike only has 574 miles on it and is in great shape but I am selling it as I should really be on a medium frame and even with a 35mm stem I could not get a great fit on this bike. The Anthem 27.5 is marketed as an XC bike...

    New bike brakes don't match specs

    So I got a 2018 Giant Anthem 2 in late July. I love the bike. I had a soft rear brake and while checking pads/specs I noticed the brakes are Shimano M615 and not the Deore M8000 brakes indicated on the specs on Giant's website. I called the shop where I bought the bike and was told that...

    Giant dropper max insertion?

    So I have had my Giant Anthem 2 since July and been riding an average of 3 times per week. The bike is a size large and I am 5'11." I have been getting a little soreness in my hamstrings directly behind my knee. I am fairly certain it is because my saddle is too high. There is a line on the...

    New Here

    Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and also relatively new to mountain biking. Just dropping in to say hi. I grew up with bikes and learned to ride at a fairly young age. I rode everywhere until I turned 16 and started driving. Once in college I rode as a means of transportation again here and...
