Dropper post

I have a DP on my MTB it was part of the original spec ,:I really do not need it , can you just take it out and replace it with a normal one ,( and sell it on ) ie, has the seat tube been designed to accommodate it ? Or can I just disconnect the cable and it should stay at the same height ? Cheers

Re: Cassette

There is no rattling, all the sprockets are as should be , I am wondering if this Sunrace cassettte is not a good fit , Think I’ll try putting the original 42 T back on an see if I’m correct ,

And yep, auto correct could start something big !

Re: Recommendation on 27.5 (650b) tires

I’ve got Smart Sam f/b, big difference all round from the WTB’s that came with it , better rolling and speed on hard surface and less noise, good deal from Planet X at the time

Re: What you done t' your bike today

Today I finally after 9 months got around to replacing the naff h/s bearings I got from Evans , I got some mid range for tapered Exotic forks , sealed FSA ones from Merlin Bikes , what a difference , all made easier by using the correct tools, I went to a Bike Hub near where I live ,
