You do if the bike suddenly grabs traction whilst in walk assist.
Mines to old to assist when I’m pushing.
the guys have been punishing me for my laziness,night ride in one of the rougher MTB areas then a 35km ride up and down hills today....
my Reign is back again after a bearing overhaul... having rear shock issues(300 psi and 40% sag)tho so its back to the work stand it goes.....the bloody thing almost killed me on Friday nights ride
Almost a case of "little tortoise down"
Picked up this little fella off the middle of a busy road in between cars and he had a joy ride on the Crossy to the nearest creek, put him in the shallows and he took off to enjoy the rest of his Sunday.
Every time I have rescued one of those turtles it has peed on me (bloody ungrateful things).
Looking at the wrong end there...
Broke my seat last week, had to steal the one off my Camber for now.
Poppy I have one of those seats I took of my Giant if you want it I will post it up
For any afficionadoes of ‘80s road racing, the Howie Games sports podcast has just dropped a two-part interview with Aussie legend of the peloton, Phil Anderson.
Slovenia & Croatia tour is going well. Just hit week 3 of 4. Have had a look up through the west of SLO, then train & car down to Split, then back on the bikes up through the Adriatic islands. Rab:
Half way on Cres today. Started 0dark30 on Rab for 3 ferrys, ~50km & ~1000m climb up & down.
Cres. Just past here started a 10km continuous downhill to our last ferry crossing of the trip to the Istrian peninsula. Civil engineering as poetry.
Earned our beers with the climb back up to the nights accommodation on the mainland though.
No electrons were harmed in the making of this ride but the pastries of Dalmatia have been taking a fucking thrashing
Youth, skillz, no fear... and pretty ordinary stunt preparation (I thought he was gonna' eat shit when he almost rode over the snatch strap he was being towed by - as he tossed it loose)
... oh... and an "it can't happen to me" approach to life (in a wheelchair).
Awesome jump though bloke
Me? ... Taxi!!!
I thought I travelled heavy with my rig fully loaded at 53 kg but that bike would make mine feel like a light weight.
Funny foto... but really....? That photo's just got to be a gee-up... hasn't it...? I mean, realistically - there's about two (choc-a-block packed bikes) worth of luggage on that one rack - even if you don't count the two cat boxes?
I'd love to see a photo of the rig, actually in motion... I reckon you'd be hard pressed to steer/ride the thing over kilometer on a flat road surface, much less "travel" someplace on it.
How much load on that rear hub/rim do ya' reckon?
I'm with Portly on his comment... I've done a bit of cycle touring over the years (in Sweden over the summer months), and the rig below gets me done anywhere from a week to 12 days, doing anywhere from 80 km to 120 km day/legs.
... and that's including the small igloo/fly... sleep bag, change of clothes, 3 water bottles and a small day pack with some food/snax and a spray jacket, bike pump and tire repair kit/mini tools. I was usually carrying from anywhere around 12 to 16 kg's of luggage - and that was too much at times, I reckon.
let the good times roll on...
I recon 2 panniers (1 left and 1 right) and 1 Cat would go on the front... or they wood if I were packing it.
my packing list would be very similar Warin...
Now, now, don't be cruel to cats. They could run away and become feral - kill them outright, humanly of course.
He does not need any competition...
