    What's my new frame going to be?

    Is there any burners in Alice Springs?

    I've been roped into heading up there for work next week, and was hoping to hit the local trails while I was there. I'm crossing my fingers I can get a hire bike at short notice, or I'll have to run around making freewheel noises. And it would be ace if I had someone to show me some trails, but...

    Mt Dandy trail saga and PV land management

    Most vics here are probably aware by now of the constant battle between "rogue" builders and Parks Vic up in the Mt Dandenong area, and things have escalated all the way to herald sun articles in the last week or so so i figured it warranted a thread for those that arent on Farcebook and keeping...

    How much do you weigh wet?

    As it got more and more moist today, I noticed myself feeling more and more sluggish. No worries, that's just me being unfit and some extra grit in the driveline right? Was nearing the end of my ride and saw my forks, looked like I was sitting a bit further in my travel than normal. Then checked...

    VIC New old stock rockshox uppers and lowers (sold)

    I bought a bulk lot of bits and these are the bits I cant see a use for here (and that haven't been spoken for already). Uppers have uncut steerers and no star nut, lowers are minty but lack seals. Uppers do not suit lowers, sids need shorter stanchions. Also who's going to use silver stanchions...

    VIC Lysterfield trail survey (please help!)

    As we all know, parks have gone completely bonkers of late. It feels as though they want to shut out any user groups that cause them to use any of their budget (honestly, this is the only reason I can think of for the treatment of mountain bikers and climbers of late). LDTR has just spent a big...

    What was your riding soundtrack today?

    Or what did the weird jukebox in your head put on repeat for you while you sweated it out? I can't be the only one this happens to. I don't listen to music while riding so my brain gets a little stir crazy and starts playing tunes for me. Sometimes it's a winner, sometimes it's... Less of a...
