I love the look of the fuel.
i asked about buying the demo Fuel EX and i have to wait till next month and hope it doesn't get trashed in that time it will complement my Reign
I don't think we can be friends anymore.
Loving this thread
So if i wanted to buy a base model ebike to commute on and do the odd offroad i.e dargo to talbotville type tracks
What bike should i be looking at?
One of these.
I guess it depends on how much fun you want on those dirt rides, you could buy a relatively basic hard tail with cheap forks in the $2.5 k range , or spend a bit more and enjoy something like this https://www.bikeexchange.com.au/a/m...-bike-in-store-ready-for-test-rides/103101262
Orrr....if only there was a way to get it down from qld....you could take bulltown spurinto galbotville... https://www.bikeexchange.com.au/a/mountain-e-bikes/giant/qld/annerley/full-e-1-pro/103638774
( let us know if you want to try the giant)
so the Fuel or the Remedy?
lol i edited the post.....the fuel but i doubt i would be able to get it cheap enough for me....it IS a $10000 bike after all
Looking into it
I have a Merida big 9 29er hard tail it's kinda the base of the mid range bikes :
Manitou fork -lockable fork
Sram nx cranks and 1*11 gear set
I think I paid $1300 ish and then to add to it I bought a nicer set of pedals and cleats
I'm currently looking for a commuter fixie so I can ride that instead of the mtb to work and just keep the mtb for trail riding
I am so missing MTB season ...
MTB Riding is becoming huge down here
That bloody white stuff(snow) gets in the way
Bring on spring....!
For anyone interested.
There is a Specialized Turbo Levo and Kenevo demo day/weekend at Sparrow Hill in the ACT this weekend.
Snows no issue just get a fat bike
She's learning....a few weeks ago I posted a pic of my 13 yo stealing my bike through this section. We returned yesterday and she had been a bit more receptive to advice during the ride. Won't be much longer untill she's beating me through the technical sections

Visited You Yangs for the first time today with a bunch of older blokes who all used to race. Came away with the red dragon rampant on my left shin after a whoopsie on a rock garden. The fastest guy was riding a mid-1990s Specialized Stumpjumper with cantilever brakes and no suspension - goes to show that high-tech isn't everything. Eldest guy is over 70. 42km of glorious single track with a few short stretches on park access roads. Grins all round.
So Tyres and Oil .......
Running 29 * 2.2 and need some new rubber - mix of gravel, commute and single any suggestions
D606's give good wear/traction.
Stop putting oil on your tyres?
It'd help to know what you've run before and what you thought of them / what you're looking to improve (mostly so you can teach us )
No mud, nor water .. slicks. Go on .. make it rain
