    Hornsby Jumps

    I like to remind the young kids that it is OLD mans Valley. I shake my fist at them too. However, on the weekend, I was there happily casing the dirt jumps when I was joined by and older woman who looked to be in her early 50's. She threw shade, I gave up and went home.

    And we have all been waiting for a smart though axle. I wonder if it could be used as a gear splitter in a wide range 5 or 6 speed using a wireless derailleur?

    It cost a lot more than I ever thought I would spend on a bike but still a third of potential septic costs. Will see how it goes. Bush poos are an option. There is a second house that we will rent out, will have to find some open minded tenants. What did @Minlak do? Can't wait to be able to...

    That's the spirit! Maybe I should just pipe the sewage down the back and create booby traps for moto's that ride my trails.

    Another update: Been spending lots of time on it. Once I got used to it feeling a lot more loose on the rough stuff then it became a very capable bike. I need to remember it's not my enduro, I keep bottoming out so I have to change habits and line choice. I took it for a lap around Superbowl...

    Are the bearings sealed or just have the cover?

    So Santa came early this year. Due to a tip-off and an impulse buy I bought a 5010 frame (thanks @Alexxx) Will be slowly building it up from specials and second hand parts. Have some parts already but will be sure to be spamming up the WTB section. I have been riding enduro bikes and never owned...

    NSW FOUND: A cheap trials bike the whole family can enjoy.

    Found! Picked up an Onza on bookface. Hilarious when the kids forget there is no seat.

    The Vuly one we had lasted 6 or 7 years until the springs started letting go. I was in a damp salty environment so I thought it lasted well. Make sure you pin it down as others said, and make sure it is big enough to handle adults, I think I used ours more than the kids did.

    Allergy Immunotherapy advice pls.

    My heyfever appeared at the age of about 35. Spring was pretty miserable until I went back to work after about 7 years looking after the kids. Now being outside as a landscaper has taken the edge off it and is very manageable with nasal spray and a Fexo each day. Might have had something to do...

    Where does your user name come from?

    Tried to sign up as Ace Rimmer (Red Dwarf character) but had problems getting the account to work. Tried again with whatever came into my head. It worked or I contacted the mods or something so it stuck.
