Don't know why it took me so long to go and visit this spot given its only 30min's from my place and my sister actually lives there lol.
Maybe because on the maps it looks a bit daunting with trails everywhere.
However, the local club have now set up QR codes in the General store at...
Hey guys, I know there are a few of you on here now with these.
I just found out they had some issues with the resin in the front triangle of a batch of frames and are now recalling. A guy I know has had his 2021 recalled.
I believe you all purchased directly from Deviate so should be easy for...
So stoked to have been able to get back out to my local after the huge storms earlier in the year and found them running as good as ever!
Huge props to the trail crews and fairies, done an unbelievable job.
Hope you enjoy the videos
Been a bit of discussion in other threads about different types of riding and bikes and how they may affect fitness.
Wanted to give my opinion and thought it might be a topic many might find interesting or have some input.
IMO it is not the bike you're riding but the type of riding on...
The lone Warburton trail, Hey Hey My My has had a huge makeover.
This is supposed to be the first trail in the ever running saga that is the Warburton mountain bike hub project, should it ever finally eventuate.
In the meantime the local council employed a temporary trail crew, and this was the...
Time off the bike is allowing me to get around to looking through some old footage I had kicking around.
So decided to get this one together with some footage from a couple of rides out with @beeb and @fjohn860 a little while back.
It's clear I need a better set of lights lol, the 2nd run down...
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 :)
