your bike has the shimano m522 octalink chainset doesn't it which means you need an ocalink bottom bracket

Not really guesswork if its documented?

I think you are just being difficult as it is Cole. I am going to report you for cyber bullying as I fear you might have really upset him; he is quite a sensitive soul.

You could look at replacing the crankset, upgrade some of the bike or are you still thinking of getting something bigger?

Planning on trying it with 140 forks before I decide to buy anything else see how it gets on. I do quite like the bike however I'd not say no to a trek remedy or a slash! Currently just need to fix/service it so it's good to go!

Nah sadly it's not! Most the 140s I've found are tapered typically.

A lot of newer forks are tbf, the new head tube size means you can use either funnily enough.

WARNING: ROYAL MAIL

I can't recall if this had ever been posted, but thought I'd share again. And no, this isn't a scam. A guy sent his rear Fox air shock recorded delivery via Royal Mail to Mojo. They "disposed" of the shock for it being a dangerous item. Except they don't dispose as in destroy, they sell on for their own profits. This is despite other dangerous items being sent by their business customers.

Original Singletrack World thread (17 pages of speculation):
http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/royal-mail-have-binned-my-rear-shock

Proper post by Singletrack:
http://singletrackworld.com/2013/12/thinking-of-posting-a-shock-via-royal-mail-read-this-first/


Dad is sending his BOS shock off to Ireland for service. Mad Elk Cycles strongly advised against using Royal Mail. I'm having my rear shock collected and returned by Interlink Direct/Express - this is organised by Mojo. Most other couriers etc should be ok for suspension components etc. Incidentally, Interlink Direct, fully insured for Dad's shock to go to Ireland was 20 (with 5 off voucher) - all other insured couriers via Parcel2Go were 40+.

Man cave is now set up to try and get the miles in with the weather being rediculous

got one of the Halfords turbos on half price offer - luckily they also decided to sell me the next one up for the same price by mistake...... then to top it off they sold me a mat black bike light worth 110 for 20 as they thought it was the black mat that sits under the turbo! REally impressed with the turbo - noise levels are very reasonable for the price and it gives a pretty good replication of a ride .... certainly more appealing than going to the gym

nice purchase^^

Haven't done much cycling in 2014 so far, decided to get on the bike yesterday to commute to work which was enjoyable, shame about all the damage to my lungs

Car is starting to play up again too so could be forcing myself to get out on the bike in the mornings in all weathers. Only the road bike is operational atm.... waiting for a seat post to turn up for the MTB :$

Put my winter bike on the turbo today, fuck me I hate that thing. Lasted 7 minute's and came back inside, I just can never find the interest to do 30+ minutes on it.

I used to do an hour a night on exercise bike while playing FIFA on Xbox. Didn't even notice the time to by.
