rollercoaster 5.

so here we go again, this time in green valleys mountain bike park. round 5 of 7 and i am fully committed. it’s a very cool place, honestly. gv mtb is private property and it is amazing to see what great work the guys have done with one hillside and not that much in terms…

rollercoaster 4.

the fourth round of the rollercoaster series was on this weekend in ourimbah. basically our back yard, except that of course the trails were a bit different than what i expected. i knew one of them, the downhill track, pretty well, one, the old downhill trail a bit, and the third not at all. two…

shockwiz – front.

remember i got myself a shockwiz? amateurs like me needs all the help we can get. the shockwiz is a little gadget that connects to the airspring and measures the changes in air pressure. the pressure readings tell the computer inside the shockwiz what the fork does, how fast it moves or returns to its…

downhill is our thing!

we needed a bit more downhill practice. well, i did. i wanted to try out a few lines and find faster options. for a little race that is coming up next month. good thing i got a pro to follow! a very hard act to follow, too. she knows how to throw a bike down…

titanium.

it’s always fun to ‘improve’ a bike for little money. it’s usually also quick and easy. the downside: it usually also does next to nothing. like these great titanium bolts from china. $2 each, so not really a massive expense. they also weigh 40% less than the original steel bolts. which is great until you…

valve stems.

how hard can it be? i mean really? everyone has been running tubeless for years and it’s really nothing special. actually not running tubeless is probably special these days. to run a tubeless setup one needs a really good valve stem. again, not a big deal there are so many out there. the trick is…

gravity.

last time at the rollercoaster in canberra i met a lady with her daughter (pushing her & her daughter’s bike up the hill as every good mum would). nicole and i┬ástarted talking and it turned out her daughter was the same age as natalie. there are not that many girls riding mountain bike (i mean…
