    a sorrento ('95 model I think) was my first bike as well. Ah memories. Even raced on it once. I concur on the canberra thing. Enjoy your time here, there's a lot to learn (and a lot of grumpy yanks to tell you you're wrong :-P )

    I like it ! I learned to ride in 300 acres of empty australian bush - nothing quite like knowing for sure there isn't a dog walker around that blind fast corner.

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)
    Kalgoorlie, Western Australia

    How often do you ride?
    6 or 7 days a week, 10 to 30km per ride

    Style of riding?
    XC - very poorly, but at least I'm fit now.

    occupation?
    Geological Modelling Specialist and landscape photographer (see www.scenebyhird.com)

    bike you own?
    Until 3 days ago, Giant Boulder SE. Now, a Giant XtC3 (06 model)

    bike you aspire to own?
    Got it 3 days ago ..... (ask me again when I know more about this sport!)

    fave trail?
    Still searching for it.

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    Melbourne - because I grew up there. Kalgoorlie is pretty good too, but we are likely to move to Perth soon.

    other sports?
    I used to play basketball, before knee injuries stopped me and "forced" me to put on 30kg, and swimming (did the Rotto swim in 2000). 13 years ago I did a lot of bike touring, but haven't ridden since moving to Kalgoorlie 12 years ago. I got back into riding in January this year when I bought my first mountain bike. Now I wish I had never stopped - I've lost most of those extra kilograms since January (15 years of life wasted being sedentary!)

    Cheers,
    Graeme Hird
