Re: How was your commute today

I am with you Victor, not that Europe doesn't have a few issues of it's own to deal with! I will agree though that riding the bike paths / roads of France, Italy or Spain is SO SO much safer than here. I mean being wheel sucked by a twit today who must have been half my age and riding an electric bi...

Re: How was your commute today

In other news... this happened the other day https://www.instagram.com/p/BssQ9ZSF0s4/ I wonder if that idiot drives a car that way? He powered off after he pulled that move.... Of course I caught him again on the climb up to Wellington Parade :roll: At which point I hope you put your bike pump or s...

Re: Garmin 520

It is some time since I last had to sync my Garmin to Strava, a new phone, etc.... Now I am assuming that your Garmin is still recording the ride? If so, then as a worst case scenario you can always manually import it into Strava on your PC. Now leaving Strava out of the equation for a minute, does ...

Re: How was your commute today

Today (and a few days ago) there was a group of about 6 cyclists who ride at roughly 40km/h along the Koonung Creek Trail through Donvale, where the path generally has poor sight lines. They refused to slow down for anyone, and clearly don't grasp the concept of "riding to suit the conditions&...

Re: Seville to Berlin

Love it, whichever Seville. I'd be inclined to go with the Troll. * Do I fit a front pannier rack on the suspension forks of the Surly Troll (26" wheels) which already has a rear rack? 26" is handy through Asia. Need anything for more hand positions? Bar ends or Snuffy bars or something. ...

Re: Seville to Berlin

Wow, sensational. My immediate thought was N+1, as that is always a very good answer but I am now thinking the Troll will certainly be very good still for what you are going to do. Touring pace, no stress or worry about time. Just enjoy the ride. You know the Troll fits you well and you have looked...

Seville to Berlin

So who's silly idea was it to pose the question "Where would you like to cycle next"? :? :? I started day-dreaming, which then turned to some planning, such now that I have a GPX route plotted to get me from Seville to Berlin... The big question now is - HOW?! Do I fit a front pannier rack...

Me.

Try finding 29" or 27.5" rims, spokes, tubes or tyres in some of the more remote countries in the world.

Re: Social Media confusion

Are you accusing SBS of artificially boosting circulation? Whilst I hadn't thought of it in those terms, though that was probably the driving factor behind them posting it, I was wondering whether it was an article of genuine interest / value to those within the cycling community or simply propagat...

Social Media confusion

Is news of Lance Armstrong's recent engagement newsworthy or a click bait article? The reason I ask, is that it was something that appeared in my FB feed, from SBS Cycling of all places, the day after the Queen Stage of the Giro d'Italia. Thoughts?

Re: How was your commute today

I got left-hooked on the way home. By a cyclist. :roll: Some people may have all the gear and the nice bike, but still haven't a clue how to use it. Hope you & your bike escaped without too severe an impact. Having taken a ride along the GCT a few night's ago, against the flow, I got to Fed Squ...

Re: How was your commute today

Far right of Morrell St bridge back in operation. Yes, in operation this morning. However, unfortunately, that only allows a short distance along the south bank before the Swan Street Bridge closure is encountered. Then it's onto the road (cyclist unfriendly in this location) or the Tan, creating a...

Re: Bad Friday - cyclist killed on Princes Highway

I wonder if this sad incident will get the Police to give close passes more attention? I was thinking the same thing but unfortunately suspect not, or at least not on a State Wide basis. +1. Condolences to all. I hope someone can join the dots for Daniel Andrews. Three weeks ago he refused to progr...
