    in between and road bike and a mountain bike. I love to go fast on road (hence the slicks) but at the same time my old BMX habits kick in and i love to go crazy off road.

    bike you aspire to own?
    GT Road Bike
    GT Zaskar Team or Expert

    fave trail?
    The bike lane in the middle of st. georges road coming from Preston going down to Brunswick. Get some good speed there but watch out for those bikers who look like they havnet ridden a bike before. Also, prepare to lock your breaks when you approach intersections, although cars are to give way to you. LOL.

    Honestly, I get a thrill from speed, the faster, the better. I love it. Offroad, just gunning it on some off road tracks up in the northern parts of melbourne, whittlesea, south morang etc..

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    Hrmmm, Melbourne would be number 1 if it wasnt for the friggin 47deg day new years eve wher is was sweating my bollocks off. So now it is in second place. Number 1 city I would say for me is Lund, Sweden. Every1 rides bikes, hardly any cars. Nothing better than some chicks going out clubbing etc wearing mini skirts and riding a bike to the club. LOL.

    other sports?
    Skiing Mt. Buller, Falls Creek.
    Football (a.k.a Soccer), Australia to the World Cup, About TIME!

    I was just feeling homesick so thought I'd do a search for Helensburgh and this thread came up, I'm a Helensburgh expat stuck in Houston, Texas and have just gotten back into MTB riding over here.

    What track are they calling Legend? I haven't cycled in Helensburgh for something like 5 years but knew just about every track out there especially out the back of the tip, I miss all that great single track especially the loop down & back from the motorcross track and the killer climb back up the hill from the creek, although the creek is more Otford than Helensburgh. I used to ride out that way through Nasho (uh oh here comes my Aussie slang again, my Texan girlfriend is in for a real treat! ) to Audley for a good 60km ride on the weekends.

    I really miss being so close to so much great riding, here in Houston you have to drive everywhere and having to drive to go biking really sucks. Oh well I'm competing for the first time this year so that will be fun.

    At least twice a week, otherwise whenever I get a chance to dash out.

    06 Trance 3



    bike you aspire to own?
    Very happy with the current one: would love to be able to upgrade bit's and pieces though & experiment with different set ups.

    fave trail?
    Haven't been on too many "real" bike trails. Whish I had discovered what was just about at my feet when I used to live in Canberra!

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    Darwin - Love the NT in general, and Darwin is great, nice and warm, people are real laid back, live there again any day. Alice Springs isn't too bad either - got married there!

    Purely mountain biking for this lady!

    G'day Trailadvent,

    The forum has only recently had its title changed to include the Kiwis because whataboutben noticed you guys had nowhere to call home on mtbr.com. Before then, it was the Aussie forum, which is why there were no Kiwis until your good self posted.

    Welcome - and awesome bike mate!

    Cheers,
    Graeme

    Hello Australia

    G'day team, my name's Grant, here's some stuff about me. See you on the trails!

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)

    A sunny little turd hole called Churchill in south eastern Victoria.

    How often do you ride?

    Sometimes up to 6 times a week, but usually 4 - 5 times if time allows.

    Style of riding?

    It has always been XC but i just got myself a Reign, so it's gonna head more towards the all mountain side of things.

    Occupation?

    Final year Nursing student.

    bike you own?

    06 Reign 3

    bike you aspire to own?

    07 Reign X

    fave trail?

    Probably Lysterfield at the moment, but it's a fair drive from my shite town. Lots a little local trails and the local downhill track is actually really good!

    fave city... why? (controversial!)

    Anywhere but Churchill, as long as it has good riding.

    other sports?

    Is beer a sport?

    Hey! A fellow Takura Towers rider! Do you know of anyone else around here that rides those trails?

    I've got some kitesurf buddies who did a bit out there last winter to try to keep fit while they weren't on the water, but they tried downhilling the actual towers hill and a couple of the other really steep/loose ones further out the back. Let's just say there was a fair amount of skin lost in the process

    Have you tried the short trail on the Tinana side of the Lamington Bridge, just to the left as you get over the bridge (where you end up going through the Police Paddock I think it's called)? It's not very long, but it was cool for a quick diversion on the way home from work (I used to live in Tinana), just to get off the asphalt for a bit

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)
    Dunedin, Sth Island, NZ

    How often do you ride?
    Once or twice a week for recreation usually with a few buddies or group, commute for fitness (when family and weather allows)

    Style of riding?
    Really like epic rides on natural terrain, somewhere new; Central Otago is fantastic for that sort of thing. Otherwise purpose-built trails are fine.

    occupation?
    IT (keeps wolf from door, and shiny bits on bikes)

    bike you own?
    Reign and XTC

    bike you aspire to own
    none currently

    fave trail?
    Wanaka, Queenstown, Naseby, Rotorua - all have great trails. So many other places I haven't ridden, so little time...

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    The weather in Dunedin is the worst aspect, best feature is the quality of the schools and university - it's a great place to raise kids. (Siblings are caught between locally zoned crap public schools and $20,000 pa private schools in other cities).


    other sports?
    Oddly, given the erratic weather, Dunedin has some of the best surfing in the country, if you can put up with the cold. Beach & point breaks that face every which way...

    Been here a while ...

    ... but I just picked up the bike from having a broken seatstay repaired, plus a fork service, so it's lookin all shiny and I wanted to post some pics of it. So here I be:

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)
    Heidelberg, Melb, Vic

    How often do you ride?
    3 Days Commuting, 1 night/arvo + 1 or 2 weekend MTB rides

    Style of riding?
    Trail/XC + a bit of the ubiquitous AM

    Occupation?
    Software Engineer unhappy with life behind desk in front of computer doing meaningless work, but at least it pays mortgage and MTB upgradeitis, and allows for 'work from home' days (i.e. extra riding days)

    Bike you own?
    Scott Genius MC-50 (the bottom of the range non-carbon Genius cos that's all I could afford) w Rockshox Revelation dual-air U-Turn.
    Planned upgrades: Shimano XT Wheelset, brakes & shifting gear. Shimano SLX 2 ring Crankset (when it's released), Easton Carbon bars & maybe post.





    In action at the '07 Scott 24hr (sunset lap - getting cold)



    Bike you aspire to own?
    Don't mind the look of them Ibis Mojo's - an Orange one of those would be sweet.

    Fave trail?
    Yarra River to Pink Ribbon & back
    Forrest Trails
    Buller DH

    Fave city... why? (controversial!)
    Melbourne - I escaped here from Canberra a decade ago, never to look back.

    Other sports?
    Why? It just takes time away from MTB riding with friends.

    Happy trails!

    Thanks. Given the squillion photos of Port Hills you've taken, I can guess yours is there for riding too - though I did notice your Handjob made it into the porn section (that just sounds wrong). And yeah, the photo guys at the Scott 24hr were fantastic - they're called Sportograf and they're from Europe somewhere (http://www.sportograf.de). They were always so encouraging and chatty as you rode past - about 20 of them I think all round the course. Nearly every photo I got made me look like I'm some elite athlete in a magazine spread. Very impressive. Here are another few shots of their's I purchased (very good prices too):





    And my favourite, one of 2 long exposure shots of the mountain they took (this one shorter). Check out the Milky Way behind the clouds. Bare it may have been - Mt Stromlo - but it made for some mighty impressive photos at night.

    Yeah My rides see alot of dirt.

    Those photos are simply the best i've seen in a long time. Fantastic! I'm so over images of riders front on... *yawn* Now these images tell a story about a culture- bloody amazing.

    Thanks for sharing.
