Well it was time for the big upgrade, i decided that the 150 forks needed tossing and in there place came som 2012 160mm fox talas rlc with kashima coat and fit cartridge, also a nice new sram chain, cant remember the serial number, but its good, also a nice polished thomson 50mm x4 elite stem, bike now feels absolutely awesome, and it now comes in at 12.9kgs, very happy with that!

The weekend before the Husky 100 I went for a weekend holiday down south and stayed at Culburra Beach. (I probably should have gave warning about the mud).

Not only did I get some fantastic riding in I also took some various photos. I only have an iPhone 4, but it still can take great photos.

At one stage I was on a wharf and managed to walk within a metre of a pelican and got some great photos. Preempting the flight of the pelican I switched to video mode so I could screenshot from the video later. Does this count as a real photo?

Any one into multi-sport events?

Curious if any riders are into more sports than mtb.
I'm thinking of doing the Nepean Odyssey. Organized by same crew doing Kanangra 100. Involves mtb, kayaking and xc running. At 80k's total, it's gonna test me out, especially as I've never really kayaked before. So I'm doing more training before I commit. It was gonna be held in Nov, but now pushed way back to March. Get more training in I guess...and find some kayak gear

Anyone need thorn-proof tyres?

Just got an email from a mate of mine in Zimbabwe, who is constantly fighting the battle against thorns, and searching for the ultimate thorn-proof solution.

He thinks he's found it:

"After many years off trying various tyres; Tubeless and Tubed… I now pronounce the toughest tubeless tyre in the world to be the Maxxis Crossmark tyre ….

This (see photos) was found under the mud after washing this afternoon… I remember a bit of a hiss about 8 kms from the finish yesterday… I thought it was just another of many thorns.

well its not a XC bike

Which gloves for XC?

I went in store and tried on some gloves and found that XL best fitted me. L was unable to get on without a fight and XL was loose and had extra finger length. I ordered a pair of XL Fox Incline (full finger) and a pair of XL Fox Tahoe (Fingerless) from The Bike Shed. After recieving them I found them a little tight to get on but I have full movement once on. Once out riding I start to loose feeling in my thumb, pointer and middle finger and start to also get pins and needles.

Hey guys,

My little boy is about 10 months now and I feel it's time to start getting him out on a bike. I have a commuter and would like to set up a system so I can take him out on mellow street cruises.

I'm thinking a rear rack style, but would be interested to hear any BMORCer's experiences or reccomendations.

Thanks,

Chris
