    Tinkering away......

    Here's an update on the Blender, almost nothing is stock now. Dropped a heap of weight off stock and it now goes up hills much better than before!

    New things (new to this bike at least);
    Manitou Circus Expert 100mm
    Fulcrum red zone wheelset
    Juicy 5 brakes
    XT crankset (dropped about 10kg getting rid of the POS truvativ!)
    Thomson x4 50mm stem
    SRAM 11-34 cassette

    It's not a bike I'd take on an all day mission but this is easily the funnest (is that even a word?) bike I've ever had. It's a bit of a slog uphill but the handling is out of this world and makes a short blast on boring trails so much fun. For those who have never thrown a leg over a steel hardtail I highly recommend it - such a great material for this kind of bike. If you're 5'5"-5'11" then give one of these a whirl.....i'm in love!

    Between you, Hud, Hud's Bro, and Jimmy Barnes, I reckon the ferrous metals business will be popular for decades to come

    Nice ride. Purposeful, neat, and well thought out.

    My new Charge Duster chromo

    Built this up with my old parts from last bike onto the new Charge Duster frame.
    Rode 2 hours on it yesterday and forgot how sweet it is riding steel
    First time riding 1 x 9 setup and was fantastic
    XT cranks 32t with Sram 12-28t rear cassette.
    Might look at 34t front with 11-32 or 34 rear for the big climbs.

    Love those tyres Shane!

    I picked up my new bike this morning and took it out to Lysterfield for a gentle ride.

    It was a spectacular day, I was mesmerised by the mirror on the lakes surface.

    Thanks Mrs H and the tyres are some of my favorites, Geax Sedona's in 2.25" used to race on the 2.0" versions and love the ride, grip and control they offer

    Nice pics from your ride

    I will have to look out for the bike with green tyres around the Daisy Hill area. Looks like a great bike.

    Trek Fuel EX8 WSD.

    I love it so far!

    Lysterfield was OK, some mud in spots, some nice new berms on Blairwitch, and a pump track which is fun (even though I suck at it)

    I also changed the stem and rear skewer on the Devinici Magma to make it the trailer bike instead of the Giant Anthem, which I've converted back to singlespeed.

    The rack colour was dictated by what I had in the shed. Screws,nuts, washers and bolts are all stainless steel or zinc coated.

    I'm thinking of using old tubes as tie-downs instead of the occy straps I've got there and having two bits per tool so I can remove each tool individually if needed instead of undoing them all like I have to do now.
    I want one of these for a surfboard!

    Just need to shorten brake hoses. Couldn't wait until I got bleed kit, especially with such a perfect day!!

    Great fun frame!!!
