What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

The swamp is nicely overgrown into double track. Did you ride down bees nest? I love that hill, you can hit stupid speeds before the hairpins:)

I'm on dad duty all weekend looking after my daughter and one of her friends. Went to jellybean pools and a drive into the park, I saw 6 'riders' walking up that hill from the creek crossing. Personally I finding it more taxing walking and pushing a bike than riding.



I had 1x10 with a 42 extender and it was absolutely fine, the only difference I think between the two is the 36 on the 10 speed versus the 37 on the 11 speed and it makes for a bees dick when you're in those low range gears. To be honest the gap from 36 to 42 was never enough on some big hills!

3x is looking good again
Mrs came along so did Shaws Ridge and then out through Blue Gum Swamp.

I did consider the ST from Halcyon Road then Bees Nest but she is happier on the flatter stuff. Nevertheless the descent down Shaws Ridge isn't her favourite and was pretty dry and loose today.

The climb out of the creek crossing into or out of the park is a low gear grinder. I find the way in harder and sure feel rooted by the time I reach the small car park near the end of Little Moab.

Good going sir. I'm trying to find good reasons to upgrade but 22/34 gets me up almost anything in the Mt's. Bedford Creek with no dabs is still the one to beat and it has kicked my butt quite a few times.

After a 6 week break off the bike, rode Camden River today. So unfit now, took 25 minutes longer to ride, then came home and spewed my guts up. Good times. Saw a red belly black snake and heard plenty of kangaroos bolting through the bush. Great spot, I swear it's longer each time I go there

I have to get down there and have a look. It was pretty toasty today so blame your hurling on that one.

Rode the 29er for the first time in nearly four months. 20 km around Kurrajong. I've lost so much weight in that time (around 8 kg) that my suspension had stiffened up! Rear sag used to be around 35%, now it's around 25%. I had to check at one point to make sure it was on the correct setting.

Yeah mate, finished week before last. I don't know what wheel size it was made for, 26 is fast but I can barely manual between all the doubles let alone clear them.

Edit: I spoke to the builder a few times and he was adamant it was launchable the whole way through.

I rode there yesterday too mate, what time were you there? We kicked off just after 7:30am.

Finally got around to taking my cousin out to test his Xmas prezzie, the old gt peace 9r. Was his first shot at riding single-track and he loved it despite me being a complete jerk and giving him a rigid SS to start his MTB collection. Lots of stops but he managed a full loop of the blue trails at lysty, which is a fucktonne better than I did on my first outing.

Introduced him to some of the local fauna as well...

You are an evil bastard. Ss, rigid, v brakes. Why not throw in fixie rear hub as well. Tyres at 60psi too?
