HEY guys new to the sport and im riding a ktm ultra x 29er. im just seeking some advice i find the bike seems to throw me over the handle bars very easily compared to riding friends 26ers.I was wondering if this is a common problem with 29ers or my bike in particular and if any thing can be done to fix this problem.. e.g new bars etc

Music while riding speakers

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi all Smiling

Just thought I'd ask you mtb'ers if you've come across any decent speakers for riding?

99% of the time I ride on my own and like to listen to music so I have used the Altec Orbital 207 with an mp3 player for about 2 years and its awesome quality and volume but unfortunetly its no longer made and the newer version looks way too big to carry on my handle bars

I prefer speaker to ear plugs so I can hear whats going on, bike,cars ect

any ideas / suggestions

what I use now the 207 link ...

Clip On or to not to Clip On

Whats the go for MTB'ers using clip-on's

I think I would prefer not to have them so i can freely move my feet on the pedals but if there are any advantages to using them i'd consider changing.

So are there any advantages to using clipon's ?

Trials Bike

Hey Guys

Just thought I would post up a pic of the bike I just ordered. I will have to organise some regular street rides with people when it arrives. I can't wait!

It's an Echo 24 inch trials bike. Full Echo spec. Cost me $1200 but I have to build it myself, well I don't but I chose to cause that way is more fun.

What to do with old parts

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Like many of you I tend to accumulate old or broken bike parts and struggle to find a use for them. Since they are so expensive to replace but almost impossible to sell I tend to hang on to them. My girlfriend came up with this nifty idea for an old bent disc rotor. $20 for the clock parts from spot light. The rotor cost me $80 to replace so this clock is worth $100 but I think it will make a perfect addition to my shed...when I have one.
