    what is the riding like in the Katoomba area?

    North Katoomba, used to be a motocross track back in the day. Some okay tracks, can link over to some good tracks in Laura from there too.

    Why so few new bikes with Shimano drivetrain?

    Ain’t that the truth.

    Yeah 9 is lighter, but not a deal maker. Bike feels light to me, think people over think weights. But yeah. I’d say the 140 with 9 could get under 13. Shorter shock for one.

    No real reason. Just wanted to have experience with all options, had the 18 speed in my Nicolai, and figured 9 would be best for people to test ride as it’s easier to speculate what more gears and range would be like as opposed to less. This way they can know if they can live with the 9. Yeah...

    It’s good for wallet in long run. Chains, sprockets, cables last several times longer and no mechs to damage.

    Older fella wearing RM Williams boots test road it today at Stromlo for three runs. “Rod, A update. Haven't been on that run for 12 months or more but managed personal records or top 3 times on 17 out of the 20 segments. An impressive bike. . Thanks again. Cheers”. He’s ordered one. Another...

    Need a Single speed rear hub, reccomendations please

    Won’t have the benefit of less dish stiffer wheel of a single speed hub. The Hope trials hubs have a lot of drag don’t they. I9 are sweet, a Mate is running the single speed ones on his Zerode. I’m running a conventional one on mine, purely because I already owned it. The Pinion hubs are pretty...

    The Astrix has started

    Is that your dog? I had a harlequin Dane crossed ridgeback and sold ten of her pups, wondering where they all ended up. Was fifteen years ago, would love to get her bloodline back but. Had same colour blotches, she was a tad more robust though, hat one looks stronger Dane genes, we bred her with...

    More painful owning a nice bike you can’t ride, ha ha. I have a nice Canfield 29er, but rarely got it out. Main riding has been school runs towing one grommy and one on the front. Cool shirt.

    Yes Crankin will sell the 140mm one too. It’s linkage a shorter metric shock. It looked much better clean, lol. Has a few little touches of an o red and gold that are lost in dust now. I’ll post more pics when I wash it. Will only get new front tyre ever, I’m too tight to put new tyres on rear...

    Zerode Taniwha

    Finally have my own Taniwha. Not sure if it’s because I’ve barely ridden in two years while doing the parenting thing, but this thing is fricken awesome and stoked to be selling them. I now get why the customers rant on about how happy they are. Just need to get some fitness back. Rear end felt...
