Re: Custom frames

There's also Anatomic. They're building custom Carbon from what i've been told (inside knowledge) as well as just about any other material you care to mention. http://anatomic.com.au/ Website is a bit crap though. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Anatomic-Bikes/150721944987941 Probably better than the...

Re: E2: Paris: Velo Liberte - ABC2 - Tonight (Wed) 8pm

I wonder what Paris will be like in 10 yrs? Still full of Frenchmen..... There were way too many cars on the road over there in April when I went. The whole place is mad at peak times but no aggravation as everyone just seems resigned to the fact that they have to sit in cars and wait their turn in...

Re: Paris bike share on ABC2

The French sure do know how to do it. We were there in April and there were the rental bikes available almost within sight of each other right across Paris.

My local council paid up on the $700 odd of cosmetic damage. You'll find the insurance company will accept the claim but it will be under the excess and come out of whoever the insured is pocket.

They will be fine if they keep it pretty quiet, they are working on making many 4wds like this, the base model is a 2wd and you have to pay extra for the 4wd, there is always a proportion of the market that will take the base model. The Territory is selling quite well like this. The 2WD version sel...

Mitsubishi 380 is a good example of a car manufacturer making a bad decision. If they had built the Lancer in SA instead of the 380 they would still be viable. I suspect that Ford never intended making the Focus here. Why would you pay Australian workers perhaps 2 or 4 times the rate they pay worke...
