adrian laugh.gif , you could have said the G spot or something.

Glen, are you nuts, that's a damn good ride. I have to start getting fit again I'm feeling 41 mellow.gif
COASTY
LOL It's a pretty easy ride. Ask Matt! He done it it in one day but in 2 stages with kids. I find it very relaxing and it clears my head. I also find all my 44 year old aches and pains disappear when I ride. Now that I have full feeling back in my rearend I feel great!

Geez 28k's on a kashimax = 2 years in prison!

I'll bet your bum is sore!
COASTY
LOL Thankfully it wasn't a Kashimax. It is a Messinger copy. Padded but not much.
Kurt.
LOL. I found after a while my Kashi wore in.

Actully, come to think of it, the kashi won. It was my bum that wore in. Selective callouses!
COASTY
hahaha My Shotgun on the Supergoose is not too bad. The aero one is ok too. I don't think I'd do it on any of them though. I might give the padded Kashimax Aero a go later this week.

I've found that mountain bike shorts make a huge difference when you ride with old style seats

I find If I ride further than 10k's on a Kashi etc, I have to ride the rest of the way side saddle! huh.gif

Glenn - Awesome cruiser mate!...White tuffs look great mate.

Kurt - Can u call me....re: 2 hole blue Kashi seat for your build wink.gif

Christian - 3 G-boys...woohoo! Well done mate...and a euro BB for the frame as well.



By the way.....(in 38 degree heat today)....I bought a 1982 Blue Max Frame, forks & a set of Skyway Tuff 1's today...(big thanks to Pickles & Meatpie)
The frame/forks are in MINT condition...very happy. Its a frame I have had on my "list" for quite some time...now its in my collection. smile.gif

That's some decent distances on the bikes, boys. I've done a few long rides around Brisbane and the Gold Coast on my Campillo with the first version of the FlyBikes seat. In my opinion it was much worse than any old school seat even though there was padding. The good thing was that with the short seat posts these days it meant much of the riding was standing up anyway. They redesigned it be a bit wider and now it doesn't feel like it wants to disappear...

Nice pickup Mick. Dropouts look very tidy.
Kurt.
Cool score Mick! Very clean.

Will give you a call today.

Looks like I will have to change my signature very shortly too!!!

Ahh Kurt - the point of the MTB Shorts is that they look like every day cargo shorts, sneakily hiding the lycra underneath so as not to cause offence
COASTY
Nice frame Mick. Was that Scotts? I think I remember him having one.
COASTY
LOL The things you find when your bored!
From the first gathering at Jas's house.
Mick , did you do this one?
Funny thing I just noticed about that flyer. The figure is my old teammate Dean from the Pancake article we both did !

Nice flyer Glenn. I reckon that was before Mick was around here?

great pics Christian and Matt.

Sensational BMX porn fellas!

Christian I think you should weld all three together. The two completes on the outside and the frame in the middle. Just like the bikes in the tourist areas so you can go cruising.

Haven't been out and about much as I have a few weeks here. Just to keep you happy, here's a shot from where I stopped and had a coffee one morning. A great homemade ice cream place there as well.



Hill sprints anyone? No this isn't my driveway, fortunately.

Very nice photos all-round boys!


My ET is for sale if anyone is interested smile.gif

Kurt.
Wow Reece - after waiting so long for her, must be something special in mind to make you sell the E.T.

BMX or Monaro?!?
Kurt.
Any of you fellas have experience doing helicoil repairs?

Got a Redline Brute stem here where the theads in the base are buggered. Bolts will thread in but won't hold enough tension and slip when tightened right up. Bits of the original(?) helicoils coming out.

Looking for tips/expertise!

$46K Bike

Lot of money to state the obvious like, yes I feel tired, yes I'm sweating a bit, yes my legs aren't as powerful as an hour ago... Wonder if it also tells you whether your bum looks big in bike shots?

Wow wacko.gif

I bet they sell a few though.

Shame they'll only get ridden by w@nkers!

Matt - That Patto is Awesome mate!!! Bling build...wow!

James - go on....buy one! Accountants are very wealthy from what I have been told....and they all drive Porsches! hahahaha

Christian - Huh?...no 10-hole gusset G-boy?.... wink.gif (congrats on your latest G-boy purchase mate)

Reece - Dont sell the ET!!! ...if u need space - extend the shed! smile.gif

Kurt, has theRL arived yet?

I sent it on tuesday.

Nice afternoon in melbourne, going fishing with a friend of mine who has a fishing show on chanel 31. hope to get some squid and whiting. I haven't been on a boat for ages.

Kurt.
Hey Christian - yes - arrived this morning. She looks great! Left you a message earlier over on Oz.

Early minute myself here - beautiful afternoon. Too hot! Putting her together now. Love it!

No charge to you Mick. What goes around comes around, as you know!
waza007
Please note this seller on ebay

rwrightway2009

While his bikes are real and he does own what he is listing, his story is a bogus as anything.
He bought at least 2 of the frames he has listed as complete bikes from me LAST WEEK!!!
He does know more about the bikes than he says. Check his feedback to find when and how much he paid for what bikes.
It seems to me as he stared collecting 3-4 months ago.
broke L345
Thanks for the heads up waz.

C.

Kurt, it's the little things I love about that bike, the BB, headset chain goodyear rear tire.... you know the stuff you wouldn't usually look at. and the stem ofcourse. I really didn't want to sell it but the Frame I got was higher on my agenda.

Hope you love it.

C.
Kurt.
Yeah it's a beauty. Have changed out the stem (running a '79 Brute) and seatpole - and am taking her for a ride this morning. Roots!

Yeah - that Tange AW27 headset is in brilliant condition. Looks new. I have one here in the box for my DB.

edit: Those 7Bs are in amazing original finish too. Hey - that caliper was a later add on after the guy on Society bought it. Think I'm gonna change it out for a '76 Weinmann caliper I have here with a shorter reach.
broke L345
nah that was me, it's all I had handy that suited the "feel" of the bike.

My new bars turned up last week........nos monkey bars....hmmmm nice...
