    Looks like a nice trail. Bit of an off camber downhill entry there, or is it just the angle of the shot?

    I suspect it's an optical illusion created by the berm , but now I'm going to be paranoid :(

    It was a lovely ride this morning, I was too stiff to get enthusiastic so I just wandered around enjoying the active wildlife / slightly more slippery trails. The bikes tripmeter tells me I was only averaging 1 k slower, but I was SOOO relaxed ( and used twice the battery power)

    I have managed another edit. It's been a tough week, but throwing myself into this kind of stuff is an attempt at escapism . . .


    Really keen to catch up and ride with you guys soon. There is a Grampians ride happening up here in mid July, being organised by @DeLewis. It would be good to have some mates around.

    Can you still override the trail/heart rate mode with the boost button?

    Not too bad. Not mastered.

    Yep, have a read of the video description - I define the modes used in there. I reserved the Turbo mode for full power, unlinked from HR.

    ADV but I'm not opposed to a pushy excursion also. 14th and 15th July I think.

    Hmmmm.
    Maybe if I just rode a little bike. But unfortunately I don't think so, a little early for me.
    Am keen on the Epic though.

    Yes Jardine, an ADV trip is being planned between 13-15 July. Just settling the details but planning on staying at one of the many bush camping areas in the Grampians and hoping Tori will lead on a few rides ;). MT bikes/ bikers more than welcome too :). Would be great to see inmates there. I’ll post further details soon.

    SO . . . today I moved the slider control for max speed on my Turbo Levo . . . to 75kph. Standard cutout is 25kph.

    Wow. Just wow. Not quite Stealth B52 speed . . . but I was sustaining 45-50 kph on the flats. Limitation is the gearing.

    Phew. I shouldn't have let the genie out of the bottle . . .
