    Early retirement / FIRE

    Don't know about everyone else, but when the temp gets below 8 degrees and over 35 riding's not FUN anymore hahaha. We did a bit of a tree change about 2.5 yrs ago up to the Hunter Valley. Weather's pretty awesome although we could do with a bit more rain. The worse season here is summer but...

    Full face helmet for a little kid

    We had our kids in these Cratoni helmets from prob 1.5 yrs. This is the modern day version me thinks. They converted to a half shell, super light but you wouldn't what to hit a tree at 30kms with one ;) Had our boy in one pretty much 24/7, even when he was just walking around as he would try and...

    What do your kids ride?

    I never knew this. Maybe the they should look into the BMX race scene where kids are racing from the age of 3/4 on race bikes with only rear hand brake and until recently prob clipped in as well. "Coordination, dexterity or brain power"..... pffffffff !! Now I know why we couldn't find a decent...

    Dishwasher

    We replaced a Miele with a Bosch 6 series with the stainless steel inside thingy last yr. Hasn't skipped a beat, really quiet. Like how the dishwashing tablet dispenses, has never stuffed up once. With the Miele, every now an again the tablet would get stuck in the dispenser and we'd have to do...

    You know you're getting old when ...

    - It dawns on you that the guy sitting next to you in the car going for a ride wasn't even born after you left college. o_O -When my 8 yr old tells me to be careful when I get on a bike, skateboard.. basically anything with wheels as it really stresses him out. -Having to get the kids to read...

    What do your kids ride?

    I also looked into the Yama Yama and came to the same conclusion. Those tyres look massive, brake levers also. what ever happened to 1 finger braking?? hehe. Is there cable routing for a dropper? says on the website there's stealth routing. also, is there any bash guard tabs on the frame...

    New bike for the boy

    Really comes down to how much you want to spend and how important it is to you the rate of their progression. If you want them to progress fast then the lightest, right sized bike with good geo etc etc will help alot. Have a look at Spawn bikes. we went with Spawn for our little ones and they...

    Flats or Clips.... for Kids

    Race in clips, train on flats is how the saying goes isn't it hehe. We were pretty full on with the BMX racing for 3-4 yrs and at first I was really hesitant about putting my kids in clips but I have come to the realization that they need to train on both. Clips is a completely different kind of...

    IMO certified clean fill is very important. One of your neighbours rings the council and you've potentially got lots of problems. I've had alot of dealings with BMX tracks over the last few years and there has been big issues when some clubs have brought in un certified fill. Are you after fill...
