    26 Vs 27.5 tyres practically the same size?

    Who'd have thought smacking your hands on every other tree wouldn't catch on? Time to dig out the early 90s neon motocross handguards, or this pretty neat (not) solution.

    Things which were made of cheese. The nightmare recalled.

    Another vote for the USE Alien seatpost. Snapped at head on first ride - to its credit quite a few miles from home. Hopeless. Not made from cheese, but a lump of cheese would have been more useful, i give you the... Odyssey Aerator. Pump and seatpost combined. Great idea, totally impractical...

    I recently built myself some 29er wheels, 32 spoke, using Sapim Laser spokes, Ryde Trace 25 rims (which i have a few sets of and i love) and fairly basic 6 bolt novatec hubs. Wheelset weighed in at 1550g. They're lovely wheels to ride as the rim is very shallow but wide enough to keep the wheel...

    Kit that makes you smile

    In another hopeless attempt to drag this thread out of the gutter. This beauty always makes me feel a bit super hero, though maybe too cool to be fun.

    Chickens Frame Emporium 29er

    Thank you! The tyres are Bontrager XR3 team issue. Not huge - 29x2.2" rear and 29x2.4" front. I've shredded so many brands on the flints round here, but these seem to be holding up. They have a decent amount of tread but roll really well.
