I think if all new drivers had to ride 50cc mopeds for a year they'd have more empathy for those that are "in their way". That being said, when a rider has room to safely use some courtesy, let people through and instead choose to hold the middle that is annoying.Got told to get on the path today, so I told them to **** off. First time I've ever had a car driver openly tell me to get off the road. She was upset because she had to stop for me

As for this thread. I'll play.
I have an old(ish) Giant XTC 29er and a Giant ATX 27.5 (recently bought second hand to build)
I intended to upgrade the forks on the XTC to a higher spec, throw the Rockshox Recons onto the ATX after a rebuild and then change the groupset on the ATX to a Shimano Zee 1*10. I also have better BB ad cranks, hydraulic brakes and Truvative handlebars and stem to go onto the ATX.
Not sure if I should not bother and just keep the ATX for my GF?
Might be the way to go. I have a bunch of components sitting there to build a fun pump track bike; but it may be better to just put them on a new frame so I dont have to worry about things not being compatible i.e.: the 1 1/8 steerer on the ATX.I'll bite. T intersection. I had right of way. I was coming along the main road and they were turning left onto the street I was on.
As for the bikes. Just keep the ATX for the gf
WTF? There is seriously sompin wrong with your gear. Did it break or was adjustment out and ya landed in the spokes? 🤔Waiting to be picked up by my wife from lockwood. Got a lift there by a bloke in a ute from near Daylesford. Derailleur hanger.
Phew! You had me worried bloke. Well at least you're getting good at changing hangers and rear derailleursYeah I'm fine
Was going slow luckily.
Must have been cracked. It just broke. I had a quick look at it when I built up the frame and it seemed fine. Should've worn my glasses
Okay for the amount of training that I can do but in a world of hurtin this morning. Racing again this afternoon and that ill, definitely hurt some. One of my mates daughters was there to race for the first time in the open classes, she is 12yrs old. So that means I'm giving away up to 50yrs on some of my competitors. But I still give the same effort of all or nothing and at this point in time, that's all I can do. Thanks for asking.
