    1" steerer MTB suspension fork for 24" kids bike.

    My sister bought a bike for her lad for £30. It is quite decent. However, the front fork is seized solid. No amount of force by yours truely could budge it. So does anyone happen to have an old pair of forks, or some off a scrapper they can salvage before chucking it? They are 1" steerer...

    Chainline with a MTB Hollowtech2 chainset.

    I'm thinking of putting a MTB Deore triple Chainset and Derailleur on my roadbike, currently the bike has a square taper chainset. The MTB Deore triple Chainset has hollowtech2, which I know very little about. The axle length seems to be fixed, so, how do you get the correct chainline? Is it...

    Should I get a road bike or gravel bike instead of a mountain bike

    Hi everyone. I have recently got back into riding. I currently have an old rigid mountain bike with 15 gears and 26 inch tyres. I have been increasing my distance and I do realize that being a bit overweight and starting from scratch I will be a bit slow. When I am out on my rides I see a lot of...

    MTB pedals on a road bike - should I change?

    So I put mtb pedals on my road bike last year, first time with clipped in. Like them and did this as wanted to be able to walk easier when not riding. However this year I have noticed the outside of my right foot will ache at around 10-15 miles. Nothing too bad but enough for slight discomfort...

    ***SOLD***Pair Ritchey Logic MTB Brake Levers.

    These were on the mixte when I got it, powering the Weinmann 730 calipers. As far as I can research, these were designed for cantis, but they do work well with calipers generally, just not the rather poor Weinmanns. Not spotless, cosmetically, but otherwise OK. Tenner delivered.

    SORTED: MTB levers for cantilever brakes

    Am hoping to do a little favour for a non-bike-savvy friend who has discovered that plastic brake levers don't exactly inspire confidence. He rides a Raleigh MTB of similar type and age to my 1998 Raleigh Max. I do have a pair of Chang Stars, but they're for side pull calipers of a decidedly...

    Fitting MTB Chainset to a Road Frame - 5mm too long!

    Looking for some advice after making a rookie mistake. I do touring with panniers each year on a road bike. Used to have mechanical triple at the front which was a godsend on a few hills e,g, Tor Head. I then got bitten by the Di2 bug and 'upgraded' to a compact. I love Di2 - pure indulgence...

    Using an Android phone app to follow an mtb route

    Hi, I have a old phone and being a tight g1t I am wondering if I can use an app on it to navigate a route rather than buying a bike computer. So with audio notifications if you go wrong etc. Is this something Strava offers - I'm having a look but I must be missing it as I can see lots on how...

    Looking for a compromise between a £1000 Boardman SLR 8.9 road bike and a £125 Halfords Apollo MTB.

    Having done quite a few very blissful miles on the Boardman but reluctant to do the daily commute on the same bike, I'm looking to upgrade my seven year old Halfords Apollo commuting bike to a better spec. I'm happy with the geometry of the Apollo but the drive train and build quality isn't...

    Any Tips For An MTB Rider Taking His First Ride Out On A Road Bike?

    The last time I had a road bike was over 20 years ago. It had a five speed freewheel with a single chainring and the gears were selected with a friction lever (not indexed). I had those pull up brake lever extensions for when you fancied sitting bolt upright and taking it easy. The frame was...

    Trying to find a way to use both my MTB and Road bike on a smart trainer. I have a 10 speed cassette on my road bike and smart trainer, but by MTB has an 8 speed group set (with triple front ring). Is it as simple as changing the cassette and chain to a 10 speed set up, or are the extra...

    Hybrid commuter to casual MTB

    I used a Kona Dew for commuting for years on 32mm slicks at 90psi and it was fine for that - if I put some bigger rugged tyres on it would it serve as an occasional off-road bike? Currently it digs a trench into anything except hard ground and doesn't cope with stones/gravel at all, tyres should...
