    When did it lose it for you.....

    It never lost it for me, had a time between 2001 and 2008 when I didn't ride as much as kids came along. I don't like the current winch and plummet nature of bikes, seems to be another move to short attention span sports (20:20 cricket, Sprint races in F1 etc). But looking back nothing after...

    Wanted Swap a XT RD-M750 rear mech for a XT RD-M735 rear mech?

    I'm looking for an RD-M735 long cage rear mech. Not looking for a spotless one, something to go on a bike to be ridden. I have a RD-M750 rear mech to swap, it is in similar state i.e. been used, but in good working order. If you are interested drop me a PM and we can exchange photos Cheers Chris
