Another glorious day of biking was had! Mark and Arran on singlespeeds and me on a fat unwieldy modern bastard of a bike. Damn I felt unfit today! At least i know what to dial in now, 1, stem is too long, 2, bars waaaaaaaaay too wide, 3 Seat too far forward and high. oh and 4, stop eating pies and get some fitness. Shakes fist at winter fat... Other than that, had a great day, glorious weather, trails were dusty and dry and the coffee was good. I am pretty sure I heard my retro bikes hiss at me when i came home, sorry guys next time haha,

Sounds like it was a good day, have they opened up any more trails at Lyster yet?

I'm glad to say my Sunday wasn't completely bike free, I found this GT Talera in the furniture section of my local Op shop.
96 Vintage I think, most of the drive chain is now rust so it will be a single speed conversion / commuter. Not bad for 20 bucks...

Great pickup mate. I love my similar vintage GT outpost. Honest bikes and decent enough ride.

...but none of me... coz watching Pfennig with a camera (to quote the great Rip Torn) is like watching a ret@ard trying to f*%k a doorknob. :D

Nowt wrong with a good doorknob... :P I tried my best!

A good ride today, singlespeed up hills always takes it out of the legs though. And with some fettling I'm sure Skinny will be lapping at a much faster pace!
