Lesson learned, don't go overdue on your fork servicing... Many $$$ later and new stanchions fitted I'm back on the trails!
What started with a blown rear shock up at Bright, I decided to finally send off my fork for what I thought was a standard service at the same time.
Well turns out the...
Awesome day up at Bright running the Hero trail and Shred Kelly on the Blue Dirt shuttles.
Unfortunately blew my rear shock out on the 2nd run, so never made it up to some of the more challenging trails up the top of the mountain.
So we stayed on the awesome flow trails and still got a solid...
Took the shuttle up for the epic Lake Mountain Cascades trail.
Even with the bus ride up its still an epic 28kms long with 580m of vertical climbing and total descending of over 1000m.
Turns out it's a very physical trail both for the legs and upper body! But we decided to do it twice, with the...
Not all PYR can be boutiques right?
So here is my very basic but very functional older XC machine. Used for everything from long rail trail rides through to technical XC riding and racing.
Most components are low end Shimano with a full SLX 11 speed driveline. Really shitty set of lead weight...
Victorian members got together for a bash down the fun descending trails of the Silvan trail network east of Melbourne.
This is around 3hrs riding condensed into 8 minutes lol
Thanks again everyone for the support with this and showing up for a fun arvo of riding.
And of course huge thanks...
A quick lap of Lysterfield Park taking in all the so called black descents.
Quite a few people around, but still largely had no worries with traffic on the downs. Did have to queue up to take our turn down Com Games lol.
Trails were running pretty nice.
Hope everyone's still managing to get out to some local trails in these difficult times, or keep the bike fitness up some way or another!
A lot of us either ride Silvan or want to give Silvan a go, so I’m hoping to get a bunch of us together for a post lock-down Burners celebration...
Given I've decided to limit my harder MTBing during this current virus crisis. I'm digging though some older footage.
This is an interesting view of the bikes front end working down a steep tech trail in the Dandenong Ranges.
Hope you enjoy, like subscribe and all that jazz :)
All the best down bits from the epic 28km Lake Mountain to Marysville trail.
Trail was very greasy in parts due to the heavy rain last week. But also the first time I've ridden it when it hasn't been a dust bowl :)
Documented this awesome little trail loop for anyone thinking of heading out into the Yarra Valley.
Located in the hills behind Wesburn, down the Warburton Hwy east of Melbourne.
Hey Hey My My is a Mountainbike loop best described as an 'All Mountain' trail. But could also be riden on an XC...
Well, been riding hard tails for a few years but deep down always wanted a nice squishy bike since I was a teen.
Finally pulled the trigger on this one earlier this year when I finally realised these old bones couldn't take the hardtail life any longer. Well not where I was riding it anyway lol...
