    Yep.
    One and the same.
    Only way it can be done that I know of is to contact Site Admin.
    I changed it because toowoombarider is too hard/long for most people to type and even I shorten it to TR when I post.

    'Evening Lads / Ladettes,

    Long time lurker and first time poster here, so I thought I'd better get myself registered and say G'Day (and what better place to start for an intro than here on the Oz Roll Call!)

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)
    - Canning Vale, Perth, WA

    How often do you ride?
    - Every weekend, come hell or high water.

    Style of riding?
    - XC, but building up base fitness as I am hoping to do some longer 'epic' rides this winter.

    occupation?
    - White collar weenie

    bike you own?
    - Giant NRS1

    bike you aspire to own?
    - Titus Racer X-100 (Custom Ti) - spec'd out with SRAM X.O r/d, XTR f/d, Magura Marta SL's, Mavic CrossMax XL's, Fox F100X / RP3 on the front & rear.

    fave trail?
    - Little Ovens & Kalamunda Circuit (done back-to-back in a figure 8) - Perthite's will hopefully know what I mean.

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    - After Perth? If it's only within Oz, then I say Brisbane - great climate and a similar relaxed vibe to Perth. If it's outside of Oz, then I say San Francisco - Swweeeeet single-track (Tamarancho Loop), great MTB stores / climate and a similar relaxed vibe to Perh.

    other sports?
    - Extreme knitting - I'm well over 100 stiches per minute

    Cheers,

    Sam.

    Cool Sam.!

    I live in Willetton which just next to Canningvale, wanna organise a ride?

    www.perthmtb.com , would be a good place for us to organise a ride.
    Sob ... I have no MTB riding friends especially ones that live in the same area. After my latest crash, my parents really don't feel comfortable about me cycling alone.

    You've got mail!

    Can't edit my previous post

    So here goes an updated version

    Well, I am not fully healed (old bones take longer), but back on the bike, once or twice a day for an hour (two hours sessions on weekends).

    Quote Originally Posted by nickobec

    trail, basically single track and overgrown double track, nothing too aggressive right now.

    bike you own?
    04 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR (got a good price on it, I was looking at midrange hardtails and there she was, for a few dollars more with better forks, fox propedal rear shock, only V brakes but that is all I need)

    bike you aspire to own?
    I just bought my stumpy, I don't really aspire to own anything else right now. Hydralic discs, wider rims and tyres are the desired upgrades.

    and beyond, generally just get out and explore on weekends, weekdays ride a short loop.

    I live in Brunswick, Melbourne.

    I ride to school and to work everyday, offroad 1-2 times a week. Also do 1-2 road rides per week. The odd long road trip, and the odd camping trip.

    I'm a Student .

    I ride a Giant Rincon 05 with Bontrager Racelite wheels

    I'd like to ride a Motobecane Fly 9357

    Don't have a fav trail

    Melbourne is the besterest city for sure!

    Figured I should update the pic of my profile.



    Oh yes. If you go back and look at 'Andy ?'. About 10mnoths ago he was racing the oaks race and came off...

    He damaged his knee so badly that he couldn't walk properly for about 6months.
    He sold his bike and as far as I know, doesn't ride anymore

    Andy sold his bike to me. Actually I have since resold it as it was a bit small for me and I liked my Raceline better.
    Andy said he didn't want to risk his job again by falling of his bike a second time, poor guy.
    I think I recall him saying he might get a roady.

    Thought I should fill this in as a newbie on the board (actually rediscovering it after many years in the wilderness, so to speak)

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)
    Sydney, NSW

    How often do you ride?
    2 to 3 times a week

    Style of riding?
    Mainly road, just not enough time to go off-road

    occupation?
    Tourism professional, some time tour guide / instructor in MTB

    bike you own?
    Cannondale hardtail (road set-up), Trek Fuel (off-road set-up)

    bike you aspire to own?
    Don't have all day so I won't bore you all, but the N+1 rule applies

    fave trail?
    Quite a few - around Sydney, would be the Oaks, Andersons, Great North Road, Lane Cove NP - I'm not one for technical riding so wide open trails with good views are good

    Fave city... why?
    Don't need to be controversial!!! But I have a few fave cities and regions.

    - Sydney - well for obvious reasons, I still think Sydney is one of the most liveable cities in the world (until we run out of water!), temperate climate, beach, mountains, wilderness areas all within easy reach

    - Hong Kong - city of my birth, need I say more? Although I don't think I can live there any more. No real place to go to ride me bike!!!

    - San Francisco - Fave city in North America by far, similar climate to Sydney's, great mountain biking very near the city, excellent road riding, close enough to the mountains, and a great city to boot.

    - Vancouver - similar to San Fran, and Canada is a nice country, too wet in winter is the only downside.

    - Calgary - my "third home" is the Canadian Rockies and it is simply an awesome place if you're into the outdoors, a bit cold to live year round though, summer is magnificent!

    - Most of New Zealand, again got great mountains and wilderness areas, even if they speak funny.

    And then there's Ireland and most of France . . .

    other sports?
    Have to involve big engines, and cars going around in circles . . . if it doesn't have wheels it is not a sport.
    Ride and ride and ride and ride and ride and ride ...
