Re: bicycle maintenance stand

I have the Gripsport workstand that is no longer produced. It's angular, heavy and hurts like hell if you accidentally headbutt it while doing a disc brake bleed. It is also likely to be the only thing left standing in my house in the event of nuclear armageddon. If it was still being produced, I w...

Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

I rode the GVBR from 1999-2007 and absolutely loved it. On the ride the staff produce the "Good Oil" newsletter, it shows the daily info. This year it is online and it brought back some great memories of my GVBR rides. https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/rides-and-events/great-victorian-bik...

Re: So, who regularly uses the Melbourne Bike Share?

According to the Herald-Sun this morning, the Vic government has made the decision to scrap the scheme. I wonder if their postmortem will mention anything about mandatory helmets and intolerant motorists being among the real causes of the bike share failing? The absence of both those factors is com...

There are no directions on where to cross and no signage on where to pick up the path again. Ian S Mary and I rode the trail yesterday. There is a new ped crossing not yet complet...

Re: How was your recreational ride today?

The breeze was very light but wind chill that was bloody cold.
