Re: Progress of Darebin bridge

Checked out progress of the new bridge on the way home last night. It looks very close to being finished. Hopefully a couple of weeks or less..

Re: St Georges Road Path Disruptions

Re: Backpack with mesh v2

I went through the same dilemma about 2 years ago.

I ended up getting the Cross Air Exp 20.

I'm very happy with it.

Not sure what you mean by "looks great but there are no padding on the shoulder straps".

I would say mine does have padding on the should straps..

Re: End of Trip Facilities Campaign

So moved into a new building (was built about 10-15 years ago) and the facilities are quite good. Plenty of showers, plenty of spaces to lock up bikes securely. Lockers are the issue. Interesting, the building of 35 collins St, has about the same total bike capacity as 180 Lonsdale (the new buildin...

Re: Progress of Darebin bridge

I did ride the new path on my commute home on Friday evening though, after a couple of drinks in the city with some old workmates. My ride was 100% off road from Docklands until about the last 200m on the residential streets to home. I left the pub a bit before 8pm, so it was pretty much fully dark...

Re: How was your commute today

A new one yesterday, going home along St Georges trail. A guy in a car had crossed the bike trail. Decided that he had taken a wrong turn and preceded to reverse across the bike track blocking five cyclist who were about to cross.

Re: How was your commute today

Almost got wiped out by a parrot on the way home tonight. I was at about 45 kph down Prospect Hill rd when a parrot flew the other way and missed my face by a whisker - the wings actually clipped my helmet. It would not have been good if I copped it square in the face, probably a net 80 kph collisi...

Re: Upping my bike light game

Like others, I have been very happy with my AYUPs for (it must be ) ten years. But inspired by this thread I think it's time to move on. Want something that's easier to mount and a single unit.. Bought one of these, lezyne-lite-drive-700-front-light In stock and on special :D https://www.probikekit....

Re: How was your commute today

Riding home via the Merri Creek trail on Friday. Looking ahead I saw a “stick” on the trail, which started to move. So I immediately stopped and saw a snake sunning itself in the middle of the track.. Like most people I hate snakes, but because I was a safe distance away, I was admiring it, particul...

I also pre-loaded my change of clothes this week, so i'm only commuting with a small musette for my wallet, phone, keys and work id.


Pump, spare tube, tyre levers?
