Every month Kah and I shoot and write the Workshop section of NZ Mountain Biker and NZ Road Cyclist magazine. Issue 57 of NZ MTBR just arrived – this was a fun one to shoot! Have a read incase you or a friend ever has a wheel-bending crash.
In good book stores now.
Every month I write the Workshop section for NZ Mountain Biker and NZ Road Cyclist magazine. This issue I did something a little different and tried to make an easy, clear graph to show the difference in gearing between a 26″ and 29″ bike. I enjoy writing these explanation / education type articles more than the traditional Workshop so hopefully the subscribers will enjoy reading.
Issue 56 is out now.
Every month Kah and I shoot and write the Workshop section of NZ Mountain Biker and NZ Road Cyclist magazine. Issue 54 of NZ MTBR just arrived – make sure you carry a copy of this magazine at all times incase you break a chain.
NZ MTBR Issue 49 arrived in the mailbox this week and I’ve had a chance to flick through. Great to see a reply to our Workshop section on removing stuck cleat bolts make Letter of the Month. Hopefully my tips and tricks save more people needing to use an angle grinder!
This months Workshop section is about diagnosing worn bearings. New Zealand winters are hard on bikes – the combination of lots of rain and the pumice-mud which most of the country has make for a fantastic grinding paste – so this issue we’ll look for damage. As always a big thanks to Kah for the photography and post-production.
And buried near the back of the mag is this photo of seven time National Champ Stu Houltham before he turned roadie. Now riding on the road for the Wheelworks Racing Team there should be no surprises he went to the dark side: tall socks, skinny shaved legs, lycra shorts, and a helmet without a peak. Plus is that a pie-plate on his rear wheel? What a punter :-)
