    VIC Road bike frame, fork, seat post, cranks

    here are some measurements. I'm 175cm but slightly longer in the torso and shorter in the leg than 'average', so I like my frame a touch bigger so I can stretch out a bit. I put this up against my medium and medium-large frames and it's a bit smaller, so looks like a size small at a guess.. It...

    VIC Road bike frame, fork, seat post, cranks

    I'm 175cm but I didn't really ride it, I bought it just to strip the components off. If I put it up against my medium and medium/large frames it's a bit smaller. I can measure it tomorrow.

    Warburton trail updates

    gonna be a tricky one... I can well understand the fears the NIMBY groups would have over this... if a trail network similar to Derby were to open up a 3/4 hour drive from Melbourne it would get smashed with visitors.

    Chain reaction cycles

    Non CRC talk but as a point of comparison... I ordered some electronic parts from DigiKey on Thursday last week, they arrived Monday this week from the USA to Aus via UPS. Ordered some parts from Merlin in early March, they took a month and sat in holding at both ends for quite some time...

    WTB axle setup including cones for a Shimano M525 rear hub

    yeah cheers, a Google search yesterday suggested a local-ish bike shop might be able to get the assembly so I sent them an email... thought I'd pop an add up here too just in case it doesn't work out.

    Derby in Tassi

    I know this is the Derby thread but as a followup to my previous post we did indeed make to to Maydena via Maria Island (well worth a day trip or stay). First shuttle up we were a bit nervous and thinking we were out of our depth... got off at the half way point and rode the cross link track to...

    What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    The Nicolai owner is my 15yo and I think he'll be OK (I'm conveniently ignoring how he broke his elbow at Yack a few months back on an XC trail), I'm more worried about my cautious 12yo.. he just got a Norco FS24 for Festivus though so we'll see how it goes. I'll get them some reasonable knee...
