"For the record my + 1 was is very much in the 'orrrrrrrrrrrrr' context rather than in a 'grrrrrrrrrrr' context. No dig, and certainly no bullying was intended. Sorry if it was perceived (or was able to be perceived) that way."

"I am finally in the process of watching stage 21 of the Giro, if sbs keeps broadcasting cycling I will be a few years behind before I know it.  I can see the value of a spoiler alert but also the excitement of the win shouldnt be bridled."

Encouraging morning on Old Bull Creek Rd.

Went for a quick(?) dirt road spin up Old Bull Creek Rd. out of Strathalbyn this morning.

A beautiful day for it and the first climbing of any note that I've done for many years.

Thanks for the hint about the Surly chro-moly. I do not have full back or neck movement after being hit by negligent drivers. So I require a MTB with upright position and a step-thru.

Do you know of any bikes sold in Australia that fit my requirements?
