Charge Mixer Hybrid - Alfine 11 hub

$330 GBP
Charge Mixer Hybrid Large – I’m a shade under 6” and it fits me perfectly. Used but in excellent condition. Truth be told I’m a bit of a fair weather commuter and this has not been used as much as it should. It’s always been kept in the garage or inside the building where I work so never really exposed to the elements. Probably done around 900 miles of fairly tame gradients, tyres still have some of the nobbles left on the edges. 11 speed Shimano Alfine hub has been faultless, I have changed the oil every 300 or so miles. The gearhub really is fantastic, you can shift while stationary and the drive is very very quiet unlike traditional mech setups. I will supply a bottle of gear oil with the bike and a plastic syringe which makes oil changes a doddle. Cipher disc brakes are very powerful for a road bike. Lights and speedo pictured not included. Will chuck in some Shimano SPDs (not the ones pictured) if I can find my old set. Collection only, based near Gloucester J12/13 M5.

Tantrum Cycles, NOW Helmets, and Swagman Racks - Interbike 2017
Indeed what the flying feck was that? And the 'bike' itself? The shocks are purely for decoration as the suspension appears to do nada. Also did someone go through quite a lot of work, sit back at the end and think 'Wow, it's finished, my masterpiece is ready for release unto the World'???!?!?! Will/has anyone buy/bought one?! If so they need lobotomising. And getting to the Tantrum, did PB save up all the ugliest bikes in the world and dump then on us at once? Whether it's any good or not it definitely looks like a linkage abortion occurred somewhere along the line and they decided to keep it all and try raise it into a living thing after all. My eyes, they burn.

Fox Racing's Impressive All-Weather Collection
@NCByron: Hardly bulky. The line is often too fine between being comfortable and being too hot. Pit or long vents up the sides of the ribs allow tailoring of the comfort level. When a jacket costs £150 minimum for a decent one, I want 2 more sodding zips! I'm in the market for a new wind proof and so few come with vents.

Carbon Fiber Valve Stems, An Improved Dropper, and 6D's Updated Helmets - Interbike 2017
So I drive 2+ hours each way to be driven up a steep hillside in a land rover or tractor trailer and ride down several times, I don't try and convince anyone or myself that my favourite past time is in any way ecological.

Why are there so many jackets out there without pit vents?!

Rotec is Back With a 5'' Travel Play Bike - Interbike 2017
After years of having a double page spread pulled from MBUK on the wall I had the opportunity to own a 2000 pull shock Straight 8 back in 2003 ish. What a bike! The only let down really was the RS pull shock, being a one of a kind, no-one had spares or much tuning capability for it. After a particularly nose heavy landing and a load of paint peeling off around the head tube area I sold it to a friend of a friend (with full disclosure of course - it's still in use today!) and bought the 2001 pull shock Straight 8. Again what a bike but even better due to the conventional Fox Van RC shock on it. The only down side was it was a bit long for technical sections on UK DH tracks at the time. After a couple of years of not doing anywhere enough DH I sold it on and eventually got the itch again and while doing some journo work I reviewed the Rotec RL9 and ended up with an ex team frame for a couple of years. Gotta say the friendly support from Sully at Rotec was great. It was such a stable bike at speed and the suspension was soo plush and bottomless with no interference from the back brake. I don't really remember it bobbing particularly badly but hey it was a full on DH bike and I'm no racer so who gives a crap about pedalling right? It was a bit of a tank (could really have done with shedding a lb or two off the frame) and for ever more technical DH tracks was still a little bit long for UK use but still an amazing ride. I'm really keen to swing a leg over the new RL9 though, could be an interesting replacement for the Kona in a year or two.
