"I did think of that. I don't think it would be an issue. Especially if the battery was put to the rear. Long cable though."

Critical Mass and why we need it now

Posted by Peter Cutajar on August 19, 2016 at 9:46pm 0 Comments

critical mass - we need it now more than ever - bikes, card players, gypsies etc. even room for unused greyhounds Nuns and grandmas to come along and be a part of Bne the new world city- San Francisco style. For it to happen it needs to be a social media spectacle extravaganza.

I know all the nanny state peeps will be negative but it will build confidence and that is what we need to be shown as a relevant part of soceity - using the safety bicycle as a way to limit our footprint and not… Continue

That's 480 trips per year less a few days for public holidays and other days when I couldn't be bothered to turn up. All up, I've walked and sat on the train or…

On my first (and only to date) 100kms ride from Brissie to Gold Coast I discovered a few issues I had to fix.…

The transition from e-bike to me-bike

Posted by Dunsobarky on April 20, 2016 at 6:33am 4 Comments

I mentioned before, I took up biking again after a considerable break for several personal reasons. One, to improve my fitness, two, to commute to work, three, to look super cool in some sparkling lycra. 

My fitness levels were very poor so, after nearly killing myself on my first commute and taking almost an hour to ride 12kms to work, I converted my Trek mountain bike into an electric bike. It's transformed the commute and is a wonderful machine. I love the feeling I get when riding…
