    Welcome! I'm doing a derailleur upgrade myself. The bike is in pieces for a few days. Tell us a bit about your trails in Caboolture.

    If you emmigrate to Louisiana, you could hang out with Nick and be Cage's cagey cage-caging Cajun.

    That's ^ all great but what's the deal with the original photo in this thread? All caged up without an explanation.

    Yeah, they look great. The trails in other people's countries always look good as after a while you get so used to your own that anything different looks exiting.

    It looks like many of your trails have a sandy base. Make sure you clean your chain & other moving bits thoroughly.
