Loaded up the bike. Heading to Ballarat for the Goldfields trail. Slightly concerned about the weight in my basket, but i didn’t want to risk not having enough weed.

dude. I wish i knew how much it does weigh. Like does it weigh as much as like an ounce of feathers? Or like an ounce of marbles? Who knows?

Makes you think but.

Zip ties. Held up surprisingly well, even sent it a couple of times yeeeeew

So fucking wet yesterday. Absolutely demoralisingly wet. Nearly called it. But decided to press on. Perfect weather today. Amazing riding.

you love to see it!

Scored a set of TRP Hylex hydro levers off FB and proceeded to chuck em on the commuter.

Much happy.

Finally found the time to replace the very old chain on my old carbon roadie. Had been riding my track-delivery bike or Bianchi Mini-Velo in the interim. Want to get rid of the Bianchi. Its far too small for me.

I have a pipe dream of buying a mini velo in Japan and going bike touring on it… Maybe with a folding Bob trailer then bringing it all back to Aus

I think if you got every bike ever made and put them in a blender, you’d end up with this.

not sure if compliment :thinking: but i concede its def function>form for this build.

Highest of praise, I just want to ride it!

How do you find shocks with drops? My mate built up a fully rigid SS MTB with drop bars and TRP Hylex brakes/levers and it was baller. Then he swapped the rigid fork for a 100mm shock and it turned into a turd – something about cornering with drops and suspension threw the handling out awfully.

Forks are rigid!

A set of nukeproof carbon jobbies, can confirm its fun to ride! Albeit its mainly my commuting rig.

Long overdue bar tape replacement. Previous stuff had lost adhesive, so it was never actually wrapped effectively. It started shifting around halfway up Berowra this morning so my hand(s) were forced.

Dealt with what has to be the worst brake ever invented. What an infuriating POS
