Not to go on too much of a sideways rant but I wish Scott would stop putting Twinlock on their ebikes. If I was buying again, I'd avoid Scott bikes because of it.
I removed it from my Genius Eride, but as said above, I can now no longer lock out fork or shock if I wanted to ...which tbh I don't...
I'm currently in the process of building a super cheap gravel bike ready for the summer but need some advice as I've never been into or really even ridden any more road orientated drop-bar bikes.
So far I've got nearly everything I need however I'm struggling with which brake/gear...
Went for a red-route run not on the eeb around 'Pines yesterday, there's a "new" optional loop that I'm pretty sure was part of the off-piste bit we did! Guess it was straightforward enough to make it official lol. Wish I'd fully recorded the ride so I could confirm
Currently building a DIY gravel/commuter e-bike based around a Pinnacle Pyrolite frame I acquired as a bare frame and forks. The rear dropout is quick release, but I'm not sure if it's supposed to fit a 135 or 142mm axle? It measures 137mm and can be either squeezed to fit 135 or just...
Haha same here.
I did have a look at the headset recently, removed the fork, added a small amount of grease on the races etc and reassembled, this did stop the creaking... for about 10 miles lol.
When I get time I'll work out a suitable replacement including determining if the fork hits the...
Eco usually only when riding with friends on analogue bikes.
Mostly use tour upping to turbo for a bit when when I need a 'break'.
Have been trying to get used to emtb mode recently but I struggle with the unpredictability of it. Maybe I'll get used to it one day!
Never used Recon's myself but from what I've heard they should be more supple than the x-fusion's. Recon's are also pretty easy to DIY service. If you're confident buying 2nd hand, a Rockshox Reba can be had for less than a (new) pair of Recon's.

Barely used and in pretty much as new condition. £350 ono, located near Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. Could possibly meet at Sherwood Pines or Dalby forest.
Lovely trail geometry hardtail with Deore 1x10 drivetrain with clutch, two piece crankset, tubeless ready...
I am wondering if anyone can shed some light on what to replace my headset with? Currently fitted to my Scott Genius eRide 920 is this (from the website): "Acros Blocklock / Tapered 1.5"-1 1/8", OD 52/62mm, ID 44/56mm"
It's started creaking, I'm not sure I like (or need?) the blocklock...
