    After years of using the pick up line " you want to mount everest?" , he met the woman who just wanted to conquer everest? He was pissing himself in fear.

    I hope this doesn't qualify as flogging, and I did record this while out on a ride, so I think it qualifies for this thread. I reckon this was one of the best echo's I have ever got in the mountains:

    Just a little note to anyone trying to sell a pushy.
    I put one on BikeExchange the other day. 565 views in a bit under 2 days. Not bad exposure for 20 bucks.
    Haven't sold it, but good exposure.

    I have passed the link to some local riding buddies, all the best for the sale. BTW, what is a good and fair price for that bike?

    Whatever I can get for it.:imaposer:imaposer

    Looking at the others advertised there, what I'm asking is fairly fair I think. The second cheapest Lapierre advertised. The cheaper one is lower speck.
    There is an interstate one that would be a good buy that is a bit more.

    I am negotiable.:wink:

    I got a bit tired of sailing around in no wind today so I hit mt taylor - they've done an amazing job of extending the xc trails, and I now have a new appreciation for what people mean by " groomed" mountain bike tracks!

    *shakes head* Andrew, I didn't think you would cave in to the good-natured shit stirring. I think it looked lovely as it was, please take off that carbon wrap nonsense.

    It looks like June 16/17 is a club day there http://www.gippslandmtb.com.au/index.php/events/560-mt-taylor-bike-festival so hopefully those trils will get a bit more traffic / compacted . More importantly, hopefully someone will log the tracks for trailforks because I may have gotten a little geographically challenged today.....an hour of new tracks and I found myself WAY off the trailforks map!

    The carbon wrap was in my mind when I first bought it, nothing to do with the shit stirring.
    I'm just not a pink sort of guy.

    Not actually sure how it will hold up. A lot of tight bends and stretches in that, might be a bit much.

    That's why I went the carbon wrap, didn't want to be called a cute little fairy.
