Robert commented on his own time: "Rode from Meninge to Adelaide with the Square2Square group (Ride from Melbourne to Adelaide via Great Ocean Road over 8 days - this was the eighth day on the bike)"

Robert commented on his own time: "Corkscrew Challenge....better than I thought I waould go, must have defied gravity to make it up this bad arse hill"

Robert commented on his own time: "Really wasnt in the mood but pressed on anyway on the small chain ring but felt better as progressed up the hill, then large ring half way up until the end. 5 minutes less than last time....getting back into it"

A while ago Revive trialled a few bikes as they were thinking of upgrading. The best we trialled was a Schwinn (Blackwood Fitness has these....worth the extra of the bikes we trialled (cant remember the name) but was so bad the crank fell off during an RPM session......

So true Harley.......agree with the comments:) Frame geometry is also important and the purpose for what you want to use the bike for......a well fitting 9kg bike will be more enjoyable to ride than a poorly fitted sub 7kg ride (much cheaper too)

Bike Station is much more than just another bike shop. Includes a fitness centre upstairs. Noel would be only too happy to give you the tour of his new shop:) The concept is far beyond anything anyone else has offered in Adelaide so far. No point selling a new bike (which most bike shops do) but you can get some indoor training done and get some measurements done (not refering to a bike fit either). Have a look at the Orbeas and Focus bikes in store - nice eye candy:)

12 Apr 2010 10:48 PM posted in Threaded one inch head set

Got a Vitus 979 frame and forks coming for a new retro ride project Im putting together. I need to look at purchasing a head set to suit the 22.2 mm steerer tube (old school) and head stem. The threading is the standard british threading. Anyone got any ideas of what would be really cool. Ultimately would love to acquire a Mavic 305 but these are pretty rare (if anyone has one and wants to part with it let me know). Other ideas include the stronglight X14 or A9. Also looked at Campagnolo (with british threading) but did yawn at these of what I have seen so far. (Probably be up for about $100 which is what the frame and forks cost me.) Yes, I do own a carbon bike (Giant TCR Composite 0) and do ride it once in a blue moon when I feel lazy as it weighs only just over 7 kg.....but the Vitus gives a bigger thrill for those hair pin descends;)
