Check out this absolute monster.
Sick Bicycle Co. have hit the nail on the head with this, I reckon. It looks immense!
I really love my Pole (so does ya Mum, hurr-hurr), and I'm completely sold on 'new school geo'. I honestly can't imagine riding a 'regular' MTB again. Some people aren't...
So after a ride with Born-Again-Biker out at Derby last Sunday, we had a chat about the few Tassie riders around and how it'd be good to gather them all up into one place for organising group rides at Derby, Maydena or any of the smaller spots around.
I created a Bookface group for...

Any Schwalbe bros here who are now on Addix Compound tyres?
I'm still on the older Super Gravity TrailStar tyres... The same set I've been on since 2015.
They've been great across 3 different frames.
The Magic Mary front is still almost perfect, but the Hans Dampf on the rear is *just*...
So, I'm moving to Tasmania... I have been offered 'full time equivalent' hours at Maydena Bike Park.
My partner and I chose to try and be there before Easter Weekend, and as such have booked a boat for March 24th.
The hard part: Finding a house.
We've been looking around the New...

Well... now that's out of the way...
Snagged the 2017 MmmBop frame in XL from CRC for 300 bucks to tide me over while I'm between FS bikes.
Sold the large 2014 Spitfire frame I was using, and...
So, with my L Spitfire frame sold... and a 2 month wait for a 2017 XL, I've been toying with the idea of another frame out of curiosity.
Something... different from the crowd.
Something I've never even seen in Australia before.

2014 Banshee Spitfire V2 frame - Large - Ano Black.
Excellent, some minor anodizing scuffs on the top tube, and chain slap marks on the inside of the seat stay.
Reason for selling:
Making the move to a 2017 XL frame due to...
So after more than a year and a half of riding my large Spitfire and dealing with lower back pain... at Thredbo on the weekend it was suggested I should try an XL frame.
I'm 6'3 and the fit and feel is good on the large for the most part pedalling around, but I guess I do feel like my...
I kinda liked the more... 'agricultural', old-school styling of Banshee frames, but the hydroformed streamlining done on the 2017 frames is pretty nice too!
Apparently making the move to hydroformed tubing is saving nearly half a kilo of frame weight.
Especially liking the new, simpler...
Item: GripSport Hi-Ride DH bike rack - 2 bike.
Location: Bundoora, Melbourne.
Item Condition: Very good, had it less than a year. Has a few paint scratches and chips from the hoops and hooks living in the boot of my old car (example images below), otherwise everything is awesome.
Toying with the idea of doing up a DJ/pump/street/skatepark bike to hone those jumping and pumping skills a little better and have my eyes set on a Banshee AMP frame.
Chasing one down (especially in a color of my liking) seems to be the hard part.
So I decided it might be cool to grab a...
On my way down to check my boss' work PO BOX this morning, I was left with some time to wander into thought while enjoying the warmth of the sun... and I began thinking about why I like riding.
Or more specifically, riding MTB.
Doesn't matter if you're a casual rider, weekend warrior, racer...
Seals on my Dorado are forked (lol), and are leaking fluid all over my floor... I kinda want to buy a replacement seal kit locally but I'm struggling to find somewhere that actually carries stock.
Anyone using a Dorado here that has experience with obtaining seals without resorting to...
Item: Commuter bike
Location: Kensington, VIC
Price range/Willing to Pay: Up to $150
Extra Info: This probably won't go anywhere, but I'm chasing a commuter for a friend. He says he doesn't wanna spend more than $150 due to being a poor ass sucka, and isn't interested in single speed.
So, I'm planning to try and enter more races of the #endubro and DH varieties this year and next... not that my riding or fitness is good enough to be competitive, but I like the idea of riding a set course designed for a race.
Anyway, I have only entered one race, on an ill-equipped bike...
Anybody around here a video wizard? Can you perform magic?
I've been toying around with Sony Vegas for a few months now, and the last week or two, playing around with render settings to try reduce pixellation/artifacting once uploaded to YouTube. I noticed, for example, channels like...
