Alison Dunlap designed the ADvantage as a high-volume, aggressive cross country tyre that corners great on big side-knobs.

" I have used these tires for quite some time and have used most of the different compounds. The 70a compound really is proving a pleasure to ride. It doesn't wear out quickly if you have to ride road to get to your trails and when your on them it hooks up nice in the mud and on rocky tracks. For an all round tyre I don't reckon you will ever go far wrong with this tyre, and you will defo get your money's worth. "

" What an awful product simply. For the money I did not expect it to be made of plastic. If you do a reasonable amount of maintenance work stay away from this. The plastic around where the 8mm allen key fits in chews up very easy and that is just using the recommended amount of nm force. There are other metal versions out there for the same money or a bit more. "

" What an absolute bargain. Had already been using an older version of this stem in white and for vanity reason and at this amazing low price I couldn't resist. This is an absolute fit and forget piece of kit. No matter what your style of riding I would recommend this stem. I use it on a NS Bikes Surge frame I built for jump park and more full on trail riding where a XC bike will just not cope. With a nice set of handle bars fitted in there it sure makes for a good look at the front. "

The Muc-Off Chain Cleaner Aerosol rapidly removes heavy chain grime quickly and safely and is also bio-degradable. It breaks down oil, grease and grim, leaving the chain containment free.

" This way to expensive for what it does. It is a solvent based degreaser which you can find for half the price in a can nearly twice the size. If you can't find a cheaper alternative then this will do the job but a higher price than it should be. "

 Continental Double Fighter II Mountain Bike Tyre
Continental Double Fighter II Mountain Bike Tyre
The new Double Fighter II is modeled on the successful concept of its predecessor. The centre, with its light tread rolls smoothly and quietly on tarmac. Off-road, the shoulder's heavy tread provides the necessary grip.

" Have had a pair of these on my bike for work and they roll very nicely. Very little resistance indeed meaning my ride to work goes even quicker now. They are quite happy on canal tracks as well as long as it doesn't get to muddy but the extra grip on the sides hooks in nice when cornering. I would say in any dry conditions off road these tyres would hold up nicely on a xc/trail bike, so much so I'm going to give them a whirl when the weather dries up again. "

" Have just given this a good ride to break the rotor and new pads in and the power was definately there so I'd say its all good. A bit plain looking, and it could probably benefit from some waves cut out for mud clearance. The price isn't cheap but its genuine shimano so until I find a good alternative I'll keep using these. "

" What a brilliant tool at a great price. Finally bought a headset tool after years of block and mallet clobbering headsets in place. This made the job so incredibly easy I found myself looking in disbelief it was done already. Anyone could use this tool, it really is very straight forward to use. Definately worth having as part of your tool kit and what a pocket friendly price. "

" Really good quality outer casing for the money. Cables run sweetly even full length tubing from shifter to mech boss. If you want to still use your bosses but want a waterproof system I'd also recommend transfil's gear waterproof kit which help seals your cables for winter or a dusty summer. "

The Spit is another aluminium bar designed for the same purpose as the Straw, in the same colours and stem clamp size, but as a riser bar option to give the fixed rider a wider choice of custom components.
 

Length, weight ?

How long is this bar, what is its weight ?

4 bolt chainring suitable for the Shimano XT M760/Saint M800 chainset.
 

Is the picture for this chainring correct?

This doesn't look like a 104 middle ring. It looks more like an outer ring.
Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
The picture is indeed an outer ring but the bolt hole distance is still correct as middle and outer use the same mount.

 Vega 200 Rechargeable Front Light
Vega 200 Rechargeable Front Light
The Vega 200 is our most powerful all-in-one commuter light. We took the batteries from our Stella 150N and the LED from the 200L and built a great commuter light that is easy on/off and has the charging built into the side.
 

does this come with helmet mount?

The Vega 120 product description says "Universal, tool-free bar & helmet mounts included!", but the Vega 200 only mentions the bar mount. I'd like the 200 to go on my helmet - is it possible?

sizes on cranks race face atlas ltd edition

please can you tell me waht is the diffrence between 170 mm and the 170 mm with 83mm in brackets
thank you
Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
The 83 mm refers to the size of your bottom bracket. Measure your bottom shell and it will either be 68, 73, or 83mm. 68 and 73 use the same size bottom brackets, you just use 1 or no spacers on the bottom bracket.

Ladies Transeo 2.0 Disc 2010
Can't decide between pavement comfort and off-road durability? Don't.
 

What are key differences from Transeo 3.0?

Difficult to see from limited web info what the differences are between the 2.0 and the cheaper 3.0.

Thanks
Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
The differences are that you get hydraulic brakes on the 2.0 rather than mechanical disc brakes on the 3.0 and an upgrade on the gears etc making for a better and more comfotable ride.

Burly but lightweight Trail and Freeriding fork (R-L-TA). Ideal for hardier Full Sus' Trail bikes with 4” - 6” of Travel.
 

can the travel be adjusted on the fly (while out riding)

Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
It is adjusted at the top of the leg so if you can manage to turn the adjuster while riding then yes. It'll just come down to your balance. I ride rock shox Pike 454 which have a similar set up, and to be honest I tend use the lock out rather than adjust travel.
