Sorry, didn't think of that. All my bikes including MTB and CX are still rim brakes. :oops:

Re: bicycle maintenance stand

I have a very old Elite Spindoctor which clamp the seatpost and is still going strong. If buying again I would prefer one that cradles the bike like the Elite Race Pro Workstand or Park Tool PRS-22.2 etc.

Re: Pin striping

Thanks jvb. Now saved in my favourites!

Edit: Just looked through her gallery of work done and noticed the VW Bus car transporter. Saw this at the German car show at the School for the Deaf a few months ago and can attest to the quality of her work in person!

Re: Pin striping

I hope that you can let us know who did it. Dying art so hard to find old school sign writers. I'm in the process of completing the purchase of an Historic 1979 Australian Formula 2 Cheetah race car that I want to return to the original livery. To do so will require a skilled sign writer such as ab...

Re: Forum broken

Good work Frosty. Haven't been riding a while now so haven't dropped in as nothing to contribute... Echoing what is said above, the forum format is dying. I am a mod on a rock climbing forum and there are numerous days where the only activity is disabling new spam logins with no actual content to re...

Re: Why are the Forums slowing down?

Consider this: The route for the 2019 GVBR has been announced - Limestone Coast and (half of) The Great Ocean Road. How does the GVBR garner conversation from the regulars?
