    bike you own?
    I own two bikes. The first being a 2004 Ellsworth Truth and the second being a 2004 Giant TCR Composite 1, Its sad to say but I spend only about 2 days a week on the Truth at the moment, which is kinda sad.....

    2004 Ellsworth Truth My saddle is now atop a Thompson post with not so much setback...


    2004 Giant TCR Composite 1 This thing flies along.. If only my MTB could weigh like 7Kg..


    bike you aspire to own?
    Such a dangerous question. But probably a fully ridged single speed and if money grew on trees I would have Phil Wood Piss Off.

    fave trail?
    I enjoyed Lidsdale out near the Blue Mountains in NSW, I love Motezumas falls up on the west coast of Tassie, and love some of local offerings too, including Breakneck, Junction cabin, and the old tram line (Which is for the majority tight half track).

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    I live in Hobart and love it, but I also find Sydney to be just great, I used to live there too.

    other sports?
    Actually no just cycling, but I used to be involved with athletics till this

    Cul

    An interview with Cul

    Where you live? Geelong, Vic, Australia... Soon to be North Vancouver, BC, Canada (for a short while anyways)

    How often do you ride? Not often enough, I am trying to get out MTB riding at least once every week, but with the Winter coming....

    Style of riding? XC, Trail, Endurance... Anything really, I started riding 8 years ago, XC / Trail, have done a fair bit of DH in my time also... Now anything with dirt pretty much keeps me happy... I'm 20 by the way

    occupation? www.farkin.net 's resident crazy Cul, weight weenie, trailrider... Hang on I don't get payed for them Basicly I make and fit "commercial" windows into buildings... at the moment we are replacing most of the MOH high rise apartment windows in Melbourne.

    bike you own? I own a couple, a very old 1996/97(?) GT Pantera, its out in the shed somewhere... I just sold my Giant AC2, which was a DH bike for a few months.
    I also own an 2003 Avanti Montari, with some Avid Mech Discs and a set of Duke Race's hooked upto it...

    As well as ProjectX-Cul, a CoveBike, Handjob XC; which is finaly starting to look like a bike... The rest of the drive train should be here in the next 2 weeks, so she'll be "rideable" very soon.

    bike you aspire to own? An Intese XVP or EVP or Santa Cruz Blur or VP Free, whatever way, something custom spec, a factory race bike would be nice

    fave trail? God that could be anything, Almost all the race courses I have raced on are good fun. I would have to say though either Ballan, Vic or the Stockyards at the YouYangs ranges... Both pretty close to home.

    fave city... why?
    Cork City, Cork, Ireland: I was born there, lived there until the age of 3, Went back a few years ago, it is a VERY beautiful city, as is Ireland in general.

    Manorhamilton, Lietrim, Ireland: Where my good friend Sinead (former riding buddy), and her cutiepie 4year old dauther live (my god daughter) . It also is a very nice town, small but quiet tranquil.

    Geelong, Vic Australia: I have lived here since I was 3, it may smell, be covered in SMOG, and what ever else, but you cant help feeling that under all the **** there is a ncie place really... I wish the council would stop skrewing it up on us

    Melbourne, Vic, Australia: Another of my personal favorites, it's quiet nice at night... Not as many hookers as Sydney

    other sports? I used to be good at running till I stuffed my knee in a fall during a race... I also played quiet abit of Ice Hockey but my home teams "politics" lead to me quiting. I have only been back to the rink once, in almost two years (was every other day at a time)... Now MTB is my "thing", enduro's are great fun, I may not be the fastest but I love every minute of it...

    The COVE... Getting there slowly


    ... Well I'll shut up now, it's good to see we got ourselves our own little forum here

    -Cul
    Cul is a regretted trademark of the CulBaire Co'op Pty Ltd, as are his random ramblings and associated ********.

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)

    Dandenong, Melbourne, Victoria

    How often do you ride?

    Spend most of my riding on the trainer maybe 4-5 days a week nowdays but do try to hit the trails as often as I can.

    Style of riding?

    XC

    occupation?

    Lets see, in the late 90s I was the lead singer of Backstreet Boys until I was kicked out for political reasons. For the next few tears I was the head of APEC. Ran for governor of California last year and was briefly married to Brittney Spears just recently.

    No seriously, I'm a final year student of Aerospace Engineering and also work part time.

    bike you own?

    Currently ride an old Iron Horse hardtail with most components upgraded to ~LX level. It serves in all my biking duties reliably and well until I soon finish building my Sintesi X-wing which will become my race bike. Also this Sintesi will be the lightest MTB in Australia (to my knowledge) @ 16.7-16.9 lbs.

    bike you aspire to own?

    Hmmm, well, I suppose, once I finish building my race bike I intend to ride it for 1-2 years (the frame was cheap and is old) until I start working full time at which point I will save up for, most likely, an Extralite F1 FS frame and move over all the components. Severe case of weight weenism in case you can't tell. Other than that I'll probably get a road bike sometime in the future, dont know which one though. And of course over time I'll develop a series of niche riding styles each of which will demand its own bike, who knows...

    fave trail?

    I live close to and ride most around Lysterfield though as it turns out I have not explored even 10% of it. Other cool rides I like are Officer, Dixons Creek, You Yangs, Macedon etc.

    fave city... why? (controversial!)

    I live in Melbourne but have been to Brisbane, Toowoomba, Sydney... They're all equally sh!t. (Hey at least I'm trying to be controversial)

    other sports?

    Indoor horse riding
    If in doubt - pedal harder!!!

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

    - How often do you ride?
    Weekends and good weekdays.

    - Style of riding?
    XM (Cross-mountain/All-moutain/Enduro) but my wheels can't handle it, so it's XC.
    Urban Assault (strapping on slicks and blasting through the city, messenger-style).
    Trying trials moves but bike too heavy (~33lbs), legs too weak for trial-style bursts, brakes spongy as hell and freehub is far from fine engagement. But I can pull off a 1/2 - 1 minute trackstand with LUCK!

    - occupation?
    Kitchenhand, student Kent Street Senior High School

    - bike you own?
    Avanti Ventura (2001, hardtail, 6061, no ISO disc tabs, stock fork- RST sh!tjob, 21-speed, square taper, 1" riser bars, Kenda Kenetics 26X2.1, plastic platforms, weinnman 519 rims)
    + RockShox Judy XC (2002, 100mm, coil, externally adjustable preload only)
    + gripshifts (generics, not SRAMs, soon SRAMs front and rear, shifters and derailleurs)
    + Shimano M424 SPD pedals (soon Crank Brothers Egg Beaters C)
    + Continental Escape (26X2.0, wire, front)
    + Continental Traction Pro (26X2.1, wire, rear)

    Full SRAM transmission (29-speed, X.0 or X.9 series, gripshifters 'shorty', front and rear derailleurs, cassette, chain)
    Hope Mono Mini hydraulic disc brakes (160mm, ISO) + No Tubes' 160mm aluminium rotors

    ODI Yeti Lock-On grips (90mm)
    Fi:zi'k Nisene CP (Ti rails)

    - fave trail?
    Langford Park, as I haven't been around looking for other trails as I'm 'automotive-impaired"

    - fave city... why? (controversial!)
    I've been to brisbane, sydney, canberra, melbourne, perth.
    Melbourne, you want culture, you get culture in Melbourne, free-thinking people (if not weird at times), very open people. Like a faster, bigger, cooler (in it's own way) Perth.
    Perth is cool because it cool, calm, quieter, more opened space and that bit more relaxed, Sydney just boring, too crowded, too busy, too cramped, too expensive, too fast.
    Sydney or Melbourne? Melbourne. Even with it's "four seasons in a day" weather.

    - other sports?
    I've played ball sports, I'm not the strongest swimmer and I've never been on a BMX for over six years.

    :: But i often dream about a Spyder or a Blur

    fave trail?
    :: One i used to ride whilst living in Sydney. It runs from Fitzroy Falls near Kangaaroo valley in a 60km loop - absolutey awesome.

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    :: I like the ones i've visited - Melbourne / Brisbane - and have a lot of time for the 2 i've lived in: Sydney and Adelaide. I'd have to give it to Adelaide for the friendly people and great trails so close to the city.

    The dude in the last pic, I must really love MTBikng to put up with the pain of riding on midget travel RST's and flat bars You think the guy will get a helmet that doesn't fry his head in summer.

    Watch out, I been seeing reviews and rants about those Hutchinson tyres not working in Australia. And those SPD's are the same M424's I own and after half a year the plastic cage is really showning serious wear, any way I'm switching to Egg Beater C's soon.

    Good to see someone with attention to detail. Taking measures on high wear areas like the chainstay and seat tube.

    Respect, jonowee
