Sorry lads, I'm out this week. 11:00 game for the under 9s in the footy, and I stripped my last complete bike (the DiamondBack) for parts to fix the RTS, and not quite finished yet. In order to use the forks, I had to change to V brakes, which meant going 8 speed. Nothings ever easy, when all you have is crap old parts, is it!!

yeah should be fairly easy going i reckon.

AS regards the Shocky, well the frame couldnt be stripped as its been powder coated and leaving it in the stripper for as long as it takes would have damaged the aluminium, so its back at my house and I'll probably manually strip it with nitromors on Saturday arvo for something to do. As for final colour, probably a tungsten charcoal colour with blue and gold anodised bits and white rims!

I am surprised that I haven't come across this post earlier....

Originally from Canberra (Majura, Kowen and Stromolo were some of my favourite rides) and now in QLD - Brisbane for the past three years (Daisy Hill and Gap Creek) my hangouts now.....

With all this talk of organised rides down in the Southern States, who would be interested in a get-together in Brissie for a SOCIAL ride....
