Here at Pinkbike we get inundated with all kinds of questions, ranging from the basic "Can I have stickers" to more in-depth, soul-searching types of queries like if you should pop the question or what to name your first child. Ask Pinkbike is an occasional column where we'll be hand-picking and answering questions that have been keeping readers up at night, although we'll likely steer clear of those last two and keep it more tech oriented.
Derailleur Hanger Dilemma Question:
geh861982 asks in the All Mountain, Enduro & Cross-Country forum: I've just recently purchased a 26" wheel Titus El Guapo, and I'm struggling to find a compatible rear hanger. It looks to be a 12mm thru axle at the rear. I've checked all the usual places (CRC, Planet X, etc.) They all list them for the El Guapo 26-inch wheel, but they look like they're not compatible. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Wet Weather Riding Question:
Pinkbike user @stefanfresh
asked this question in the Bikes, Parts & Gear forum: I was wondering if I could get some advice on waterproof gear as I will study next year in Newcastle, UK, and I plan on riding my bike. I live in sunny Spain so I don´t own decent waterproof gear, though I don´t mind having one for those rare occasions when it does rain. I'm a bit lost as to how much I should spend and what to look for, especially what kit is "basic", jacket, shorts, socks, and gloves? I have considered Endura's top of the line jacket as many reviews I've read put it as a great choice, any thoughts? Thanks.
