If anyone want's to dabble in a cheap 2 wheel bent, there's a tidy looking Lizard on Gumtree at the moment.  I was interested for the boss, but she is not as keen as I am!  (Would rather a LWB like a Tour Easy or Bella.)

Randall brought up a discussion about hiring velodrome. I've checked out the Chandler one and it's possible for us to hire provided we meet their requirements. There's also one in Caboolture. Anyone here keen for some zoom zoom in a velodrome? Discuss in the thread above.

Hi Guys saw a low rider in the USA and thought $2000 plus freight was a bit much,so I've built one for $100.It's all working except the front derailier.It is at the wrong angle needs twisting 15 degrees,I wonder if anyone has built one and overcome this problem.I have to stop to manually change up by hand.Once this is fixed it's off to be sandblasted and painted.
