Reply to Riding Solo - Love It or Hate It? 6/22/2016 3:09 PM

I like solo rides, although I rarely do it lately. For some reason, only when I'm riding solo, I'm hyper vigilant about snakes and every damn stick looks like a rattler to me.

Nah... maybe a vandoh.

Ugh.... I'm buying a new rack now after reading all this.

Thankfully no real horror stories from me. Even when we do dumb shit like testing the limits of a 4-tray T2 rack and a minivan.

That's a given... they'll be riding bikes, afterall.

With World Cup season in full swing, it's safe to say we all have racing on our minds. I personally haven't raced for years but when I did, I was always hungry for tips on training, race routine, mental preparation, etc... Aside from the "remember to

I dunno... those Mojo bars are pretty dang good... might be worth the gamble.

The garage, the basement, anywhere you store your bikes and tools... it's a sacred place... and one people often put a lot of work into. For the past few months, I've been working hard on my garage. Slowly converting it to my own service, storage and

Nice. Glad you got it sorted.

Reply to How do you store your bikes? 5/25/2016 11:30 AM

Check out this thread that was posted awhile back. Some pretty rad ideas in there. I've been doing a lot of work on my garage lately, and regularly have to store upwards of 10 bikes (for 3 people). I use a combination of hooks hanging from the rafters for ... more »

Did you end up taking your bike in? I'm curious what was going on.

What body armor you choose to go with can really vary depending on where you live, how much protection you want and or need, and how much you're willing to spend. My best advice to you is take into consideration what you want and what you'll be riding, ... more »

New thread Trail Dogs Rule 5/20/2016 10:44 AM

Going on a ride with your best friend is always a blast, especially when that friend has four legs and fur. I've been lucky enough to have two trail dogs over the years, Bowser and Goose. We got Bowser when he was already 6 years old. He's an old man

To me, that sounds like your non-drive cone isn't quite tight enough. It might be worth checking with Nukeproof regarding the exact torque spec for that nut, as if you over tighten it there is a chance of stipping the threads or cracking it. But if you're ... more »

Reply to Sideways rear wheel movement... 5/19/2016 1:44 PM

When you snug up the locking cone on the non-drive side to the axle, grab both cones (drive and non-drive) and see if you can replicate the play by hand. If so, tighten that non-drive cone down more. You basically want it to be as tight as possible without ... more »

How does someone even get to that point? Pure evil.

Reply to Sideways rear wheel movement... 5/19/2016 9:24 AM

I'm not super familiar with Nukeproof hubs having never worked on them personally, but from what I can see on their site the hub cones do have flats for a cone-wrench. Are you sure you're properly tightening down the cones? They should be snug enough ... more »

New thread Show Us Your Shuttle Vehicle 5/13/2016 11:20 AM

I'm pretty sure a lot of you have bikes that cost more than your vehicle... I know that's been the case for me for a long time, until I recently picked up my YT Tues. I've had trucks, hatchbacks, sedans, etc... but this is by far my favorite shuttle
