  1. Thanks guys for the responses. Will try something else for comparison
  2. Having used Squirt lube for the last 4 years, I’ve noticed recently that my drivetrain seems to become dirtier than normal. Cleaning the cassette, chain and chainring has become a messy affair, as there is now a waxy residue left behind. Has anyone else noticed this? Has the formula changed maybe?
  3. Searching through the web I found a link to some of the 2021 Scott Spark and RC models. From the website it shows the RC models with a 34 Fox 110mm fork retaining the 100mm on the rear. The Spark has increased its travel out front to 130mm (Down County) and retained the 120mm at the rear. Just sharing for those that are waiting for the 2021 models. I can’t find any geometry tables but it would be interesting to see what these changes do to the Head tube angle of the bikes. https://www.bicyclesuperstore.com.au/scott-spark-rc-900-team-2021.html https://www.bicyclesuperstore.com.au/scott-spark-910-2021.html
  4. Hi Warren If you can expand on your problem: What wheel set is it? What hub are you using? Is the second hub the same as the first? Are you installing it yourself?
  5. Good morning I am researching changing my current Sram 11 speed setup to a Shimano 12 speed XT setup .I am currently using a DT Swiss xd ratchet free hub body. Can anyone advise where I can get a cost effective micro spline Dt Swiss ratchet free hub, as currently the cost is around R2000 locally which is exorbitant in my opinion. Has anyone tried the Aliexpress alternatives and comment on the quality? I could get a Sram Gx eagle upgrade but would like to go back to a Shimano setup.

  11. I have a 2XL Sani2c Enjoy garment I would like to swop out a for a Small; And a XL Sani2c Salomon garment I would like to swop out for a small. Doing the Trail.
  12. I had the option of going for a 2018 Silverback Sido 1 or 2017 Scott Spark 940. Pulled the trigger on the Scott and love it. The 2017 Spark 940 is better spec'd than the 2018 Spark 950 and cheaper.
  13. Hi Jacky I find myself in a similar situation and have narrowed down my search to : 2017 Silverback Sido 1 with a Sram Eagle upgradeTrek Top Fuel 8 (need to covert to 1x)Giant Anthem 2The bikes in this price range all have pros and cons, so I would go with what fits the budget and with aesthetics. Has someone confirmed the 2018 Silverback Sido 1 will be available in March? Any idea on pricing?

    Going 1x10

    Hi Maknash I recently converted my 3x10 to a 1x 10 setup, using a rapide 30t Narrow/Wide chainring with a new 11-42t Shimano cassette and a non clutch Deore XT derailer. So far not one dropped chain.
