    Tyre repair

    Have a read of this. http://m.bigotires.com/Library-Detail/The-Truth-About-Tire-Plug-Repairs

    Tyre repair

    Great as an emergency option, but would still be looking to get tyre repaired properly ASAP. There are regulations about tyre repair: location of the injury, proximity to other injuries in the tyre as well as certain tyres (run flats from most manufacturers) being unable to be repaired. $42 seems steep for a puncture repair, most are $25-$35.

    Help requested.....to fix my bike brakes

    Try screwing the little screw on the left in, this will increase the spring tension on the brake arm and should in jam the brake.

    Track Cycling - Chasing the Funding?

    Cycling Australia sees the hierarchy as: Olympic games Comm games World Champs This is how the funding is allocated. Ridiculous

    Clip on bars for Madone integrated bars/stem

    Brake remains hidden, it's a different headset cover that allows the routing to work with a traditional bar and stem. Same as on the new madone 9.0

    Trek have just released the conversion headset assembly to convert the madone to traditional bar and stem set up.

    Custom Bidons

    Check out http://www.kapz.com/drinks-bottles minimum of one.
  12. I have a C35 rear wheel, brand new in box not required. I don't have a matching front, so I can't sell it as a pair, had a c50 c35 combo on the bike, this is the rear wheel from that pair. Brand new 9000 series C35 clincher, comes with everything in the box, including wheel bag. Price drop to $350 for wheel, pick up Maribyrnong, South Yarra or Springvale, postage at buyers expense. Thanks, Rich Pics available, but it's a brand new wheel still in the box.

    Bike build / assembly - Melbourne

    Any decent mechanic will be able to do it, you're right. Let's not forget some mechanics are far better than others at certain things. If I was in your shoes and wanted the best possible result, I would be calling Dan at Shifterbikes. His work is second to none, and it's always a drool when there.
