    Smiths Gully

    Hey guys, 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...

    Deviate Highlander recall

    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...

    Different bikes, riding & fitness

    Hey All, 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...

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.

    Riding the You Yangs at night with a couple of Burners

    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...

    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.

    Hey all, 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...

    How hard does a front fork work?

    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 :)
