Don't worry Pete, I think we should insist on Skinny riding his Bickerton for the next few rides. He seems to think its ok to go soft and ride a modern full suspension rig! He needs something to put him back in the retro way of thinking

challenge accepted! hehe

Pete mate, awesome work on giving up the bifters, it gets easier trust me. I've been smoke free now since March this year, best thing I ever did. I used the Allen Carr method http://www.allencarr.com.au/ and it was shocking just how easy it has been considering I could plough through two packs of Winnies a day easy! If you want I can mail you the audio version on a stick drive to keep you going in the right direction.

Beware the Buxton Burger from the Igloo Roadhouse.
Many, many years ago, I seem to recall taking on, and losing against half a cubic foot of artery hardening goodness!!

no probs Pete mate, i really need to come over to yours with those specs for the Shockwave pivot. Have you still got the lathe?

Also, just got this in a link, Buxton trails are closed due to last nights storm damage, since Lake Mountain is that way i would be surprised if it hasn't affected the trails there.

Stay tuned for more updates

I'm still in for Sunday, happy to just do Lysterfield if Lake Mountain is out for now. Maybe wait until we get a bigger turn out & the trails are dry.

yeah same thinking mate, unfamiliar tracks in the wet isn't any fun. Lystys great at the moment now anyway, hopefully the works they have done on the drainage will have kept the damage away.

I would like to get a big turn out for a meet together, but I understand with everyone's schedules this isn;t a;ways doable.

Never mind, Lyster on Sunday nice and early round 10-10:30?

Sounds good to me, perhaps to try a faster run down the new section too!

Skinny, am I ok for the usual lift? I'll buy the cakes at trailmix!!
