Might be, Si, might be!
2  CHILL OUT ROOM / tech shop / Re: Fox Shox Float RP23 Rear Shock on: 14 Aug 11, 22:49
What bike and what kind of riding are you doing?
Usually recommend between 20% (more XC) and 33% (DH) sag.

You'll need to know the shock stroke.

Measure eye to eye (from bolt to bolt) on the shock with it uncompressed.

Then sit on the bike in your riding position, feet up and measure again (maybe get someone to help)

The difference between the two measurements is the sag. Work out what %age of the shock stroke has been used up as sag and add/remove air to get to your target sag.

e.g.  50mm stroke shock.

20% desired sag = you want 10mm compression when sat on the bike
30% desired sag = you want 15mm compression when sat on the bike

Looking forward to seeing the new sections at Round 3!

Should be a scorcher if the weather holds up.

Love how you're more surprised by dirt jumps than pumpkins and devils!

8  MARKETPLACE / wanted / Re: Wanted, 160mm IS to Post adapters. on: 3 Apr 11, 22:07
Photo attached - IS frame to Shimano post mount caliper.

Just checked against the frame and it's the same as the 160mm rear.

The same IS to post mount is 180mm on the front or 160mm on the rear - so this would do 160mm rear.

Drop me a mail to phil at gravity-slaves.co.uk if it's of interest.

I think I might have a new one.

It's not marked with anything so I'll post a photo to make sure it's what you are after.

Just found XTR bottom brackets for £16.90 - even with £5.95 delivery to the UK, still cheap:


I also got a 'new customer gift' - a ROSE bikes bowl?!

Had to clear the snow from the drive somewhere on Saturday so thought I'd do something fun with it...

Top stocking filler tip!

Only Wharncliffe reference was the UCI DH standard training track and uplift that's going to be built, starting at the cafe in the top car park.


There is talk underway to re-open the access across the railway as this is a long standing right of way that was there before the developer bought the land.

I hope it's reopened - beats parking in Intermet or legging it across the bridge.

Rich is dead on - the site was bought for them and they have 2 years to pay back the million quid in order to take control of the site.  There's not likely to be much progress from a riding point of view for the next year as the Wildlife Trust are trying to raise the cash.

Last night's social was excellent, a really good update on all live issues facing riders in the area.  I'll ask Henry if I can post a summary.

The quiz was great - Matt's geeky, bordering on scary, knowledge of matching rider and section to a tune got us top spot and netted the team a whole bunch of kit from Eighteen bikes, Bike Tree, Edinburgh Bike Collective and Smartwool.  Good haul!

Here’s a date for you diary from Henry @ Ride Sheffield....

1st of November at 7.30pm in the Lescar we are going to be having a meeting/social/bike quiz

Representatives from Eastern Moors Partnership and Parks and Countryside will be coming to explain their plans to develop the Eastern Moors and the trails development around Parkwood Springs. There will also be a chance to discuss plans for Greno Woods and Lady Canning Plantation, Fox Hagg and anything else you want to chat about.

But to soften you up, we will also be having a bike related quiz -  with lots of cool prizes to be won, donated from local bike shops.

If that wasn’t enough; if you have any bike bits you want to get rid of, but never got them on ebay, bring them along with you. We’ll be having a little bike jumble sale at the start
