    Default finally back since farkin

    I have raced and ridden MTB's in FNQ since about 1990 , now that my 14 yr old son has the MTB bug bad my interest in the sport has peaked again. He has broken my poor old '07 Yeti 575 and a Giant Trance so now I have bought him a Santa Cruz Bronson to trail.
    I was just looking thru some pics of my first "Real" MTB , a 1991 Apollo Team Comp . Indexed thumb shifters, Elevated chainstay, Alloy frame with 1 1/4 steerer... Damn , cutting edge stuff. All for $1340.
    My new Transition Patrol carbon is a different story , my days of 100k epic trail rides are a thing of the past. For my son and I now its all about crawling up and bombing down the beautiful trails of Cairns.
