Cotic's Updated 125mm FlareMAX Gen4 is for 'Up, Down, Roundabout Country'
Cotic applies rust proofing to the frames before painting. I think it's manganese phosphate (but don't quote me on it). Either way both of mine have a black coating on the inside of the tubes and no signs of rust after several years.

Speculation Arises Around Wiggle Buyout By German Retail Giant Signa Sports
@dude-brah: I'm very spoiled to live within a mile of a really good bike shop (Stif), so I've just been buying less online lately.

Speculation Arises Around Wiggle Buyout By German Retail Giant Signa Sports
@greenpistol: As a customer right now, terrible availability (even pre-Covid), passive aggressive customer service, average prices. As a long, long time customer of CRC, Bridgepoint got ownership of CRC, then fired it's warehouse staff, then fired it's wheelbuilders, then fired the accounting staff, then steadily downsized everything else and moved it all into Wiggle's existing (very bad) logistics. CRC used to be one of the gold standards for customer service in the UK, now they are not. I used to buy stuff from CRC every few months (tyres, chains, brake pads etc) but haven't bought a single thing from them since early 2017. When it comes to buying consumable parts they aren't even on my radar anymore, which is very sad.

Wiggle/CRC being out of Bridgepoint's hands would only be a good thing. Or more accurately, new ownership can't possibly do any worse, even if they closed the whoe thing down.

Not sure about the cable solution, but that is a nice looking bike.

I dunno, rolling up behind earphone wearers on my quad bike and laying on the horn at point blank range never gets old. I swear one got high enough to clear the drystone walls one time...

First Look: Tsuga Gear's Pisgah Pad - Pond Beaver 2021
Pff paintwork, leaving it outside in a hailstorm did for the paintwork on mine... and the windscreen... and a wing mirror.

Ask Pinkbike: Long-Travel vs Short-Travel Trail Bike, Measuring Fork Stiffness, Heavy Tires or Inserts?
The number one thing that gives me punctures here is thorns, special Gorse thorns that seem to be invisible until the moment of impact and also able to render sealant inert until all the air is gone from the tyre.
