Re: How was your recreational ride today?

We did the new section of the Yarra Valley Rail Trail yesterday. In the rain. It is basically an extension of the Warburton Trail from Lilydale to Yarra Glen.

Re: How was your commute today

Re: bicycle maintenance stand

I have the one from Torpedo7, not sure if they are still around. Their stand is pretty ordinary. I had to modify it to get it to work for me.

Re: Pin striping

Would be keen to see photos of the Zündapp too! I'm in the process of putting it back together now. I've rebuilt the engine, 250cc, 2-stroke. I've had the cylinder honed and put in an oversized piston. Repainted and re-chromed. Lots of aluminium to polish as well. You can look it up, Zündapp Elasti...

It was CBF fixing it. I was told they were too busy organising ATB and that after that they would have a look at the forum. Seems they have, but for how long?
