Yep. Last Feb (just b4 covid got real in Aus) I spent a month in Vancouver on work trip & went skiing whenever I got the chance. Wore my...

I've been looking too but seems unlikely at this price point, especially these are hub drive. The other one I was looking at is the Cube...

Assuming colour negatives only? (Would love to start using a lot of leftover Velvia slides)..

In a pet's 15~20yr lifespan, the end of life outcomes boils down to a few scenarios: i) die of old age naturally - we'd all like this to be...

Was reading up on what the patches do - bugfixes or enhancements. It looks like it's a bit of both and in some modifies the attributes and...

Just by reading this post I hear the midi theme songs in my head. Good times. I'm sure I already collected them in GOG but on this deal...

Can also vouch for an edge router (I use an ubiquiti edge router X). The edge router has not skipped a beat for months since installation,...

Do you mean the Van Rysel 900? I bought the CF900 Ultra last year when it was called B'Twin, was before they rebranded to Van Rysel. That...

The other cost effective upgrade for this bike I think is the chainset - it is actually a non series Shimano despite having the 105 look....

Yes - at the very least, there is an XS and (what seems to be) a L that is on the display rack.

I am 170cm - which is kinda in between sizes but I picked the S because I had a previous bike from Decathlon and the S fitted so I stuck...

Decathlon. Sorry I've updated the title to make it clear now!
26/12/2020 - 21:14
yep as pingMarky & Drakesy said - this would be good for touring or commuting. Something like the back roads between two country towns...

Decathlon Triban RC520 (Disc, Shimano 105, tubeless ready) $999 (Decathlon - in store)
I've been eyeing this as a gravel bike for a while. Even at $1,399 it was highly reviewed and shortlisted in bikeradar's bike of the year...

I have the Sidewinder ski jacket. Bought it from the outlet in Vancouver. It is a shell-only ski jacket (i.e. no insulation), which is...

I've been a long time skier and just recently moved back to Aust from the UK (3yrs ago). Last year we did NZ, and this year Japan in Jan,...

agree - can't go too wrong with Decathlon esp on the low end. They guarantee the frame for lifetime and their service schedule is cheap.

Trek Marlin 6 owner here ($850), but the Trek Marlin 5 is $699 and not too different in spec. The good point is the hydraulic discs , but...

$2.5K (from FTTC), which is on the very low end of the scale compared to others here. Ironically, with the fibre pit being just 2m from my...

That would be the pinnacle end of the deals as in "I can come right now, with cash" (even if its a 2hr drive). But it is part of the fun of...

after a bit of Google searching, I settled for a Specialized Align II (MIPS) which is $90AUD (if you sign up for the emailing list at...

I recently got a Trek Marlin 6, looking at Trek website the Marlin 5 also has hydraulic disc and is $699 so worth considering. I'll also...

I joined Bicycle Network just before this promotion started, but I think their previous promotion that end Oct 31 was a free jersey so I...

I got a pair too, but I didn't see the inner as removable? But not a big deal even if have to cut the elastic.

I looked up the padding used in the knicks & shorts, Dolomiti. Same brand padding is used by Le Col on the higher end of the cycling...
01/11/2020 - 15:32
The knicks are great. Bought one, tried it & looked up the padding they used, and went back to buy 2 more.

I love their highlight window hotkey feature. Put a custom colour border around any open window - very useful if you have 2 apps of the...
