    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

    I won't be able to resist showing it off so expect some pictures in a couple of weeks or so.

    fave trail?

    Graham Hills and Blue Hills in Upstate New York. Out here, it'd have to be the Goat Farm up north from Perth.

    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
