Ever added up what you have spent buying bikes ? You might think that it is a scary number, but I have just done the exercise. It started out by my not remembering what our (son Jeremy and myself) n…Continue

Jeff Moo replied to Geoff Tewierik's discussion Cyclist killed outside Mater hospital
"I have ridden through there a few times over past weeks heading to the Mater, and the cars are a bit crazy, especialy in peak hour- all in a hurry, held up by the left-turning lane, etc. I ride slowly along the Stanley St footpath and use the…"

Jeff Moo commented on Paul Martin's group 'Bent Riders
"Mary, I have a recently-acquired second hand GT5. Just loving riding it. Re the door thing- in the instruction book, it shows that to fit through a narrow door, you turn the steering fully one way, and this makes the front wheels narrower than when…"

Jeff Moo replied to Raymond's discussion Rediscovered Tips & Tricks
"Here is a little tip that I have "invented" (or reinvented, in the very likely case that someone else has already done it). When replacing a brake or gear cable, the cut end needs to be bound up somehow so that it doesn't fray. I use…"

Jeff Moo replied to Shaun Moran's discussion Gazelle Fuente EM (Bosch) review
"Fantastic review. Was very interested to hear that the Fuente has QR skewers front and rear. My non-electric Gazelle has the hub gears, and removing a rear wheel is a major mechanical exercise. Removing the front is also a pretty big job. I see the…"

Jeff Moo replied to Justin T's discussion Need a padded saddle or seat cover recommendation
"Might I suggest that you commence riding your commute for a couple of weeks first. Road bikes have firm narrow saddles,and are frequently uncomfortable when you start. Wear quality cycling shorts and ensure that your sit bone width matches the…"

Jeff Moo replied to Richard Bean's discussion Riverwalk opening 21 September

Jeff Moo replied to Big Steve's discussion How was your commute?
"Rare commuter (myself). I am on jury duty for 2 weeks and had to go in on Monday. Rode my pedal Gazelle. Beautiful cool morning ride along the Bicentennial to the Courts in George St. Chained to the bike rack, then a 15m walk to the entrance. Rode…"

Jeff Moo commented on Stix's event Bent Riders Group Ride

Jeff Moo replied to Big Steve's discussion How was your commute?
"I agree with Paul. The cog teeth material can be metal or plastic as long as it is correctly engineered. An advantage of plastic cogs is a lesser need (perhaps no need) for lubrication, no corrosion plus some "give" in the system for…"

Jeff Moo replied to Taezar's discussion What I saw riding my bike - August 2014

About Me :
Keen, but not very fast. Ride with a group of workmates/others 2 or 3 times per week. We love to ride and eat. Do the 4 organised rides each year (BQ, MS, B2Ipsw, B2GC). My 13 yo rides with us now and then. Just did up an old CrMo framed road bike for him to grow into. See photos in "can anyone tell me what this frame is ?" He got a GT 29'er MTB for his 13th birthday. Those wheels are enormous! We both have recumbents now, and loving the comfortable ride. I really enjoy riding the Greenspeed. A pedal go-kart!
