Did you plumb them funny again?


Checked out the new flow trail at Porters Lodge.
Super fun trail though has a little room for improvements.
Bumped into a family doing laps there and thought something looked familiar.
Sure enough the boy was riding my old V1 Spitfire.
Stoked to see how happy he is on it and she still goes hard.
He was amazed to see 3 generations of the bike in 1 spot.

New frame day. 2nd replacement from Giant on my Anthem. Same cracks in the seat tube between the BB and shock mount.

Dropped it off at the shop and found it's not the SX green that I'm tired off now but a black Anthem 0 frame.

So although I have to pay fro the frame swap get a better colour and the bearings on the pivots were on their way out so all in a good outcome!

Shock arriving from service in an overnight bag, I'm an obsessive refresher of tracking numbers, so sweet to have it say delivered the second time you check.

Cheers Dougal, on fit-and-sit test it feels good.

New wheels. Wee commuter SS from Rollfixies, pretty cheap for what it is so pretty stoked. Just need some wider flat bars and a shorter stem and she'll be ready to roll!

Isn't there some sort of law sharing arrangement between North New Zanada and South New Zanada?

Don't let those dirty Amerustralians have all the legislation in common.
