Re: Adventure Ride- Oaks Trail MTB 10th Mar 5.48am Central T

As I've been talked into this, I'll give you the run down on what to expect. The Oaks fire trail runs from Woodford to Glennbrook in the Blue mountains. Its approximately 25km and I'd call it mostly down hill. Now my definition of down hill may be different to yours but it does start further up the ...

Re: The Pimping of my Fixie

I did think about this as well as respacing the rear triangle for a 120mm wheel but ended up leaving it as is. I think its a 127mm spaced frame, don't want to bend it now as I may crack the paint. Changing to track drop outs may not have ended up looking all that good as I doubt they would have been...

The price is definitely right, the build, not the best but even paying someone here to get the spoke tension right you'll still come out way ahead.

Re: RUBY THE ROOKIE U/15 JUNIOR

The chain line is important if you want things to last and you also want a quiet bike. The disadvantage of a 130 BCD crack is for larger chain rings it isn't going to be as stiff as the chain ring edge is further from the bolts, although unless Ruby is a sprinter she is not going to notice this just...

Re: RUBY THE ROOKIE U/15 JUNIOR

Not being able to get a small enough chain ring is probably due to 144 BCD cranks. You may need to go to 130 BCD road cranks. I'd look at going with a larger sprocket, 48T chain rings are the most common size, 48/17 will give you 5.92m roll out. Generally you change chain rings for changing gears as...

Re: RUBY THE ROOKIE U/15 JUNIOR

It's never quite that simple. The actual wheel diameter will depend on things like tyre brand and tyre pressure. The commonly accepted circumference of a 700x23c is 2096mm, so the diameter is 667mm. If in doubt just measure it.

I agree with Weiyun, I see no point in riding the actual course. Its a terrible road surface. Its not a matter of learning where the pot holes are more like where they are not, I like to describe this course as every now and again you'll hit a smooth patch.
