    New PB at Silvan after finally getting my rebuilt suspension back after 2 months

    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...

    Bike trouble while getting my Hero on

    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...

    Lake Mountain Cascades Epic, Twice!

    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...

    POS The cheap yet cheerful collarbone killer

    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...

    A Lap of Lysty | Black descents

    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.

    How hard does a front fork work?

    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 :)

    Epic Lake Mountain Descending

    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 :)

    AM Chriso's bike for fun

    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...
