Calling all bike riders. I’m going to switch from my old school 24inch NS capital to a modern 26 inch dj. Sick of not being able to get parts. So what the best bike I can get for a maximum of £1000? Cycle to work scheme maximum obviously... like the commercial absolut because it comes with circus experts, most others seem to come with RST forks. Madder hit me up!

Also... has anybody seen the 2020 Commencal Absolute? Internal cable routing, Looks sweet!

are there any 26' tan or whitewall tyres that I can set up tubless?

Any tire can be set tubeless iirc just requires to be crafty

So true. Especially if your rims are made specifically tubeless, but even if they aren't.
1 Split a 20" BMX tube down the outer seam with the valve through the valve stem hole
2 wrap it around any 26" rim,
3 set the tire up normal tubeless,
4 Use too much sealant( you may or may not lose a lot)
5, fill with a compressor, done. Works better than a lot of tubeless specific setups from my experience.

The previous Green Bicycles Scope had cracking issues. My buddy went through 4 frames in a year and a half. I hope they got this resolved as they are really nice frames

28-13 Removed the anodization from the chainring.

Removed the anodization from the chainring, suits the raw frame nicely.

I do have a tubless specific rim, any recommendations and does the Maxxis dth (tan wall) or Schwalbe tabletops (also tanwall) set up tubless?
