Subjective comparison between ‘bent and Road bike.The ‘bent is broken, so I had a chance to do my normal commute on the roadie and compare the results.  It’s hardly a scientific test, ridiculously…Continue

After some months since I got it, the webbing on my seat has finally deteriorated to the point where I had to do something about it. Even the temporary rope solution wasn't really doing what I needed…Continue

Northside loop ride - interested?

I’m thinking of doing a longer ride one day in June, probably mid june.  By longer, for me that would mean around 75km, more than enough for this duck.  Initial thoughts are a loop where people can…Continue

P9, if you are after a jc70, you can get them from a brisbane importer, a1 adventure sport. Their prices is more competitive than the ebay listing.

Probably Dodgy - but this seller has 3 performer trikes for sale with free shipping from China... The seller profile is a touch dodgy though!

The gravity sled is back on the road again


Comment by JamesD on June 24, 2015 at 8:35am

The gravity sled is back on the road again, temporary repair done on the swing arm and all re-assembled.  Took the opportunity to strip the bike down and have a good look over it, no other issues found, so all's good in the world :)

Hi Aaron,

Thanks for the link, looks like I am set though, found one in brissie thanks to David and David :-)

That trike looks like a TW Bents Apoyo.

In a very quick search I found this ...

I am an Apoyo owner and yes they do have a big history of cracking. Mine cracked and it cost around 300$USD for the repair. I would not recommend one as a regular folder for anyone.

Hey Matt, not too sure how wedded you are to a GT3, but this trike is still on consignment at Ridgeway Cycles for $1200.  You may be able to haggle, I've seen it there at least 6 months ago.  It looks pretty damn good and if I had the cash I'd get it.

David, don't know the answer to either of those questions.  I'm hoping it is soon, and no.

I was thinking mid week Pete, but nothing firm yet- i need to work it around chauffeur requirements etc. Once the interstate relatives are gone (in 1.5 weeks) 'l work on a firm date. 

A credit card tour is also an option, Option 1 may lend itself to that, then you don't need to worry about camping gear.

Comment by Peter Smith on June 18, 2015 at 7:49am

Would this be a weekend trip or week day trip Terry? My weekends are taken up on Saturdays with hockey.

I'm keen to tag along, except I'm limited with camping equipment, and I would have to take the rotovelo or the mtb, or the road bike. 

I do have the ute to transport the rotovelo and mango if you would like to do a loop somewhere.
