I am a bit disappointed to read some of the recent comments on the forums.  I think some of the comments have been directed at the person and not the topic of discussion.  Yes, we all make mistakes…Continue

"Hi Don All nice to see happy youngsters on a bike. I've read a some positive articles about the byk brand, are you pleased with it? It looks like the stem is on backwards. This might negatively impact the steering."

Today we conquered Norton, tomorrow...

Posted on October 6, 2010 at 16:25 5 Comments

Today I set out on a ride with my young daughter and we made it to the top of Norton Summit...

This was the first "serious" climb that I had attempt with the trailer in tow. It all went very smothly, so well that Ayli slept the whole way up the hill - it required a little more…

Hi Don

Good to meet you today and thanks for the offer of a venue for a cycling europe slide show. I am pretty easy about a date, I guess (like you suggested) its better to try and slot in around existing bookings. I'll send Angus a message and see what he was thinking of and get back to you

I'd recognise those headlights anywhere... I had a Datto 1600 as the first car I bought. Awesome little thing. I swapped it for a motorbike and the car was then written off by its new owner soon after. Pity.

At least yours is a nice blue. Mine was like a chocolate brown that the previous owner had painted with a brush. At least that meant I wasn't too fussed about scratching the paint and not too precious about it.

I had a blast in that car. :-D

Welcome aboard! Thanks for joining us. We're a pretty mixed bunch of bike nuts so I hope you get something out of the community. You can post to the main forum, maintain a blog, post pics and videos, join a niche group or start your own for your group/ club or interest.

Please tell your cycling mates.. and thanks for the reminder about the Classic Adelaide. I think the beach run will be busy next weekend!
