"That bit was especially slippery yesterday evening, hope she's OK.On my commute home I had a moment coming into the Roma St Parklands from the north where the path ends and joins the road at the little T junction, went for a nice slide sideways…"
"Try-outs sound good, I'll keep an eye out! Hopefully there's one suitable for a taller person to try, I've had my eye on one on and off for a few years but haven't been confident enough to grab one
Agreed with speed = safety on…"
"I'll wave if I see you! I could be on a random bike from roadie to rigid 29er, but usually in a high vis running shirt.
Recumbent would be fun, might have a go of one some day. That would be interesting on the tight bits of Lomandra Drive."
Yep! If I see you I'll roll over and introduce myself. Not sure what attire I'll be in, probably light blue long sleeve top riding a big Giant Anthem duallie 29er, it's about the size of a small horse... :)"
"Did my first commute to/from Coorparoo to the Airport today after working out there for a month, left in the dark and saw the sunrise out at the Airport which was nice, not a bad ride back this afternoon either.
Was happy with under an hour each way…"
"My 'fleet' has everything from 23mm skinny roadie tyres all the way through to the 2.35" Big Apples!
I stuck a set of 700x50's on my touring bike for a giggle, rolled beautifully! Trade off was speed wobbles for some…"
"Had a fun ride this morning, took my rigid 29er with 2.35" Big Apples for the commute. Very plush and only slightly slower than normal, it's one of those bikes that's easy to ride and puts a smile on the dial.
If the Police have a…"
"The Disc Trucker is for keeps, it's my favourite bike and a forever bike :) Will still be commuting on it to carry gear (pretty regular occurrence), and will use the roadie on commutes where I have nothing to take to/bring from work and for…"
"After 30+ years of never owning a proper road bike I have finally succumbed and added one to the bike fleet as part of a SWMBO stimulated rationalisation aka "Clean out the garage!!"
Took the new roadie for the commute this morning, it…"
"Had an enjoyable commute this morning, fantastic weather for a ride. Even enjoyed getting passed in the commuter cup on a long uphill stretch, but he slowed me down a bit on the flats and down. Wanted to let him know his saddle was a bit too high as…"
"I remember reading that a while back and being impressed. I wanted a Surly Ogre, then cheaped out and built an On-One Inbred instead. Then Surly released the ECR, it's been on my "want" list ever since."
"Rode one on a beach and nearby 'back of beach' trails for the first time last month, now I want one!
Garage is full however, will probably have to get rid one of to fit a Fat Bike. Or just move house. Or compromise and get a Surly ECR…"
