Re: potential N+1 situation... disc or no disc?

as it is, I'm leaning quite heavily towards the disc variant. the only reason why the non-disc variant is still in contention is because it is still available in my size at a distributor level. the disc variant is out of stock in my size from the distributor, which means I'll have to wait till the 2...

Re: Idle bike lust thread.

never thought much of e-bikes, until I tried one at Bike Buller a few weeks ago. till date, it was probably my first time climbing up hill with a big grin on my face and yelling "holy $(!* this is amazing!" even did four loops of a small test circuit! incidentally, a few hours after the te...

potential N+1 situation... disc or no disc?

hello everybody! I may be in a potential N+1 situation. I'm deliberating between two bikes that are more or less similar, except one has hydraulic discs and one doesn't. both have the same frame, both run Ultegra Di2 8050 series. only difference is the rims, the presence of disc brakes, and the cost...

cycling around Red Hill

I will be visiting a friend for a day in Red Hill in the coming weeks, and was wondering if it was worth bringing my bicycle along to explore the local area. I've never been there, so I have no idea what to expect in terms of rides. quick Google searches has shown that Red Hill (and the nearby Morni...

Re: How was your recreational ride today?

took my Trance out for a ride down the Lilydale - Warburton rail trail. the plan my friend and I had (along with a few of his mates) was to do a Lilydale - Warburton - Lilydale ride in a day. but judging by how unfit my friend and I are, we decided that a turn around a few kms after Seville would be...

Re: shorts for a petite lady

Thanks for the help guys. She bought a pair from Bicycle Superstore, and another pair from Cycling and Sports Clothing. Funnily enough the Sugoi and Santini shorts didn't fit her properly, owing to it being loose at the thighs. She settled on a pair of Bellwether and a pair of Louis Garneau. Skins h...

Re: shorts for a petite lady

It did cross my mind to try kids sizes. But we have been told by the LBS (and GE actually) we bought our bikes from that they tend to use a slightly more inferior chamois pad. Them and GE also said that while it may fit her in terms of waist clearance, it may not fit so well in terms of height and c...

shorts for a petite lady

my fiancee is a very petite lady. while she stands at 157cm, she's got teeny tiny waist. she would like to get a pair of cycling shorts for herself. and this is where the "trouble" starts. she tried a Castelli Palmares in XS, and it didn't fit her. she said it felt loose, and the chamois l...

Re: SMR - Secret Mystery Rides - South East Melb

my friend and I are thinking of coming for this ride.

however, we're both wondering if the pace is too fast for us, will we be holding up the bunch? more so for him, because he's riding a mountain bike with thin slicks.

and I'm guessing we're headed towards Beach Road?

Re: post a pic of your latest purchase!

thank you. :)

she liked it a lot, so that's good. considering how I chose it without her input. her choice really, since she did say that it was up to me. mercifully, for once, I didn't stuff up!

Re: So how was your christmas day?

the girlfriend was working the day shift in the hospital, so I did nothing. oh wait, no I spent it vacuuming my house because my cat is shedding his fur at a ferocious rate and I had guests coming over for dinner in the evening. I also went out for a quick 10km ride around the neighbourhood, as I wa...
