Well there wasn't any on the shelf ..and it's an ebike specific light as there is a small electric charge ..
I'd better check that the lube is compatible then ...🤔😂
I’ve got both versions, can’t notice a difference tbh! It’s great lube though.

I just love the names of these things... Dissector, Aggressor, Butcher, Wild 😀

I guess names like daffodil, petal and pansy just wouldn’t sell so well.
I guess it works the other way round too ..

"daffodil, petal and pansy " all sounds like great names for ladies sanitary products, but I can't imagine them running out to buy the "Dissector, Aggressor, Butcher, Wild" :)

An £11.99 brand X seat post, and a 30.9 to 34.9 seat post shim.

My Reverb AXS is having issues, so I had to return it to Tredz for warranty repair. I don’t still have the old post, and can’t be bothered removing the one from my Stumpy.

Fearing the Reverb might be away for a few weeks, I bought the Brand X one as a fill in, so I can still use the bike. It’ll be interesting to see how inconvenient not having a dropper is after having one for the last 6 years!

A new chain and cassette after my chain snapped last Saturday. It had only done 1816 miles.

It's done a few more now though, although it is running two split links.

those sprockets, I simply reverse them and get double the life
I havent tried it yet.

I had a haibike xduro 20t sprocket and that needed replacing but im not willing to pay 95 euros for a sprocket that dont even last a year. The only thing that bothers me is going back from 20t to 18 t

yeah I didn’t even make a year on mine before I had to reverse it.

Do i also need to shorten the chain? From 20t to 18 t?
i could be wrong but I’m guessing you would remove just one link by going from 20t to 18t

I have a 15t and am happy with that. Any bigger and I would struggle to climb really steep hills even in the lowest gear

I'm trying to get hold of an RRP ProGuard V2 Rear, but nobody has stock. Has anyone had any luck finding one?

just jammed it internally so that it won't work anymore, ie broken.
When they do that you can normally take the little screws off and reset the mechanism - it's become quite common on some of the cheaper ones these days, the little ratchet jumps out of step and need putting back. It's pretty obvious when you open it up.
