The Shogun and I

Posted by Brian Jenkins (BJ) on November 21, 2014 at 10:26 5 Comments

I bought my Shogun Trailbreaker 3 in the mid 1990's, around the time I bought my Commodore.  I was riding to work in the CBD regularly then.  The car was used for a lot of the other journeys in Adelaide.  There were quite a number of weekend interstate car trips in the late 90's.  On holiday trips, the bike came along on the back.

In 2004 I went on my first group ride of any kind - two weeks with The Silver City Bush Treadlers that included going 'back of Bourke'.  I met Mike Brisco on this ride.  2005 was the first year that I kept reasonably accurate estimates of how far I rode, be it short city commutes or riding back-roads somewhere in the countryside (5,215 kms in that year).  I have estimated over the 10 years prior to that I would have done 30,000 kms on the Shogun.  It was 5 years ago I first went to a Critical Mass ride in Adelaide - that introduced me to people whose concept of 'wheels' is only bikes.

It has been on my mind for a while to add it all up,…


My Riding Coming to an end for 2014

A Mixed Year

This years cycling has brought some very mixed emotions along with mixed results. After finishing 2013 with some very big personal achievements that can be see on the post For What Was 2013 in my world of cycling I started the year fresh. To the end of Feb I was already on a roll starting with Day 1 of the Cervo Rosso Grand Brevett, a ride from home, to the city and roundabout to the Barossa with the Curvo Rosso group. The following day I rode home with a friend, Ben, from the Barossa, some several hundred Km's in a couple of days. Four days later doing the Tour Down Under community BUPA Challenge 2014, about 150 km's to Victor Harbor also with Ben.

Another New Bike

After buying the Verite Team S 105 only 12 months before I had a chance to pick up a brand new, full carbon, internal cable routing, full Ultegra bike for a mear $1,400. That makes…


France or Italy? The decision now made easy

Posted by Steve Cunningham on November 12, 2014 at 12:30 0 Comments

We at often get asked which country is better for a cycling holiday experience, France or Italy - it's indeed a very tricky one to answer with both providing fantastic landscapes, varying terrain, wonderful people and fantastic cuisine.

We enjoy operating tours in both countries, as well as others including the likes of Spain and Switzerland, but when it comes to deciding which one is better, France or Italy,  we thought we'd showcase both countries in the 1 tour in 2014. It provided people with an opportunity to decide for themselves. For the first time last year, clients enjoyed riding up, down and along our favourite roads on two countries and from the client response, they all had…


Pedal Mafia Kit - Review Part 2.

Posted by Shav Bird on November 10, 2014 at 11:39 2 Comments


Hi guys,

Sorry for the late reply of this review. I wanted to give the kit a few more runs in the saddle to be sure of what kind of review I was to write. I also wanted to prepare an honest review of the kit through my experience.

I've done a few different rides consisting of between 30-70km's. Also had a bit of practise getting the gear on and off for those interested in the logistics. 


Why bother writing this your probably wondering? Well I find some gear can be easy to get on while others you have to fuss with. It just depends on if you care or not. I've had knicks, jerseys, even sock in the past become difficult to get on for what ever reason, and no, it's not because of any incompetence. lol

With the Pedal Mafia kit, you do…
