my gravity girls.

Hello and welcome to 2019. New year, new school, high school to be exact but today I will be writing about something else so keep reading and see. As you all know from my previous writing (My Cannonball Festival), I “totally and completely” live for riding (and maybe animals, but… that’s not the point). Last…

titanium.

ah the possibilities. imagine: steel bolts are 50% heavier than titanium alloy bolts, so really that’s a massive saving. a full one third lighter! weight is very important, especially when you got to carry it up the mountain before you can shred back down. every gram counts, and this is why we are going to…

#soflat.

since the invention of tubeless tyres flats are mostly a thing of the past. here is why: typical accidental pinch flats, where the rims punch nice holes in the tube as you ride over something substantial at higher-than-safe speeds can’t happen when there is no tube, right? and if something goes right through the tyre?…

the most famous helmet in the whole world.

As promised below the list of all the famous people who signed my helmet at the Thredbo Cannonball Festival. Luca Shaw – World Cup Downhill racer and part of the Santa Cruz Syndicate team. The up and coming hero in the Syndicate team. Loris Vergier – World Cup Downhill racer and part of the Santa…

redecorating.

the frame isn’t here yet but as we mentioned before we already got a fork. the pike is a great piece of kit, but unfortunately this one is an unbranded version, which means it’s got this somewhat bland black and very dark grey theme going on. and since this pike is going onto a classic…

a new hope.

it’s christmas, a time for reflection, introspection and setting things right. so what better time to fix the brakes on my bike. i absolutely love those four pot hope m4 brakes: they have great modulation, power to boot and being machined from a single block of aircraft grade aluminium they look awesome, too. however, i’ve…

bits and bobs.

it’s amazing how you don’t notice kids growing up. i mean you really don’t see how they get taller when you have them beside you every day. the rate at which you need to buy new clothes offers some hints, e.g. when the pants you just bought a month ago hardly cover the top of…

my cannonball festival.

It all started on Monday 3rd of Dec. We were heading off to Thredbo for a big mountain biking festival and I was so exited because it was my first time at Cannonball. We had heard a few (other) VIPs would attend, too – exciting! The drive was long but the weather was great, the…

race day.

initially we were a bit disappointed when about two weeks ago the gravity girls clinic got cancelled due to a snowstorm. in hindsight that was a stroke of luck: our canberra friends al and tash convinced us to reschedule the trip and come up for the cannonball festival instead and that was one of the…

cannonball!

remember we sort of missed out on nat’s gravity girls clinic in thredbo due to bad weather. the weather is infinitely better now and as an added bonus there is a little bike festival called cannonball on at the moment and we enjoy the buzz. most big manufacturers are in town and a lot of…
