crossriderozzy
got too go and ride some of these sore spots out,lol, will post more tonight
Jarvi
Cool photos. Love the idea of the switchback, just to get away from the straight, 180 turn, straight, 180 turn etc. Not too sure about all the paved stuff and landscaping though. That picture of the pros looks like they are riding through some-one's back yard.
redlineoz
uh ha?
cheers
Jarvi
Has anyone posted this before? Maybe before my time.

KOSY-MOTO
LOOK it's Glennooooo!!
QuicksilverBMX
That looks like a really cool track! the one I went to the other night scared the sh!t out of me!

Don't know where these came from. A mate just sent them to me!


Either could be really cool or go really bad!!!
velocidad
Howard , if you haven't seen them you must watch the New World Disorder series of mtb dvd's... plenty of action line that ^^^ !
OldSkoolRoy
I LOVE THAT CONCRETE TRACK!! It reminds me of the big race they had in Japan in the 80's with concrete corners. That manual on the bridge rail is sick and...Jarvi!!!!!!!!!!! I remeber that page...THAT'S REALLY COOL!!! Is that Glen from here? Coastvl....your famous!!!!!!LOL.
KOSY-MOTO
Yeah Im not too keen on the Concrete tracks.. Don't know it aint the same.. Hmmm..
Mattblack
Hi,
That track is part of my regional races. It is fun but they forgot to tell you was the last two straights are up hill and the rhythm section is very tricky and your legs are about to expoled.
Dam foot other wise I would have been there and could have talked OS all day.
dugga
great pics of ACT....looks real quick but a bit sterile though with all that paving. Tyre choice and pressure must have been difficult. I assume they lock up at night, otherwise the locals would go crazy with the spray cans... Still I'd love to seal our berms... if not with concrete then bitumen, must save a lot of maintenance time and if you make them vert they could double as a quarter pipe
COASTY
wow that track looks very fast! Comp street or ramp tires would be the go! maybe a set of old staduims even! I could use my sisters dragster tires!
I love the landscaping. I wish we could do that to our track. Looks very professional. Good efforts by all the boys that went.
Theres a new ad on telly up here for Hogs Breath cafe. It features Wade Boots in the ad riding at nerang track. Qlanders keep an eye out for it.
Oh and yeah thats me and JB at Fivedock and ride eastwood skateparks. I have the full article laminated for future casey generations! lol
Oh and I was made a moderator on calaisturbo.com.au today. Beers on on me!

Re Wyndham Session Tues arvo is OK but Tues after 7 is better. Will this be a 20 20 practice day?
I park my car on Derrimut Road & ride to the track -approx 300 metres. On race days you can drive all the way up to the track. Its just 20 metres from the Glen Orden Primary school grounds but am unsure if you can drive in there after hours.
Comp 3s will be fine there-wonder what the tyre of choice at ACT was-Holly Rollers? Snake Bellys would have made a wonderful noise flat out round the concrete! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Hey Tell me more about those Tioga pedals youve got for the PK-I rode an MTB equiped with them & I actually believe they have more grip than DXs, theyre unbeleivably grippy. Up close the teeth are shaped like saw teeth ie alternating teeth point forward & backward-if you look along the cage they would be in a V.
crossriderozzy
dugga, they have a 6ft fence around the place, the facilitys were a 1 and the surrounds were very clean, they sure like their bmx in the act.

there was a guy I met in the pits riding this around

hes name is bill and we talked about os and he said come and check out his van, and he had this in the back
Jet Black
Who's that other guy with CoastVL in those old Pancake pix ? It looks like it _may_ be my evil twin brother running under the assumed identy of someone he clipped for fun or profit.
He makes me look like an angel


JB
HowardinOz
Hey GT, I hope to get there around 4pm. I'll have the kids with me, and I forgot I promised to rebuild a mates PC tomorrow night.
It'll be a short session but should be fun.
Maybe a 20, 10, 50 session!
20 years older, 10yr old bike, 50kg's heavier!
I don't know, I still reckon it was the weight of the bike stopping me getting much air the other night!!!
That and the run-down track/jumps.
You got PM
KOSY-MOTO
CrossriderOzie: Thats a classic.. and he even drives a VW 70's Kombi ... did you at lease offer to buy any of the two bikes? yes or no?? for a billy? hehehe..

JB AKA mad scientist I thought that was you inside that helmet? yeah?
crossriderozzy
and one for the boyz
our club pres and our 16 yr old hot shot with the xbr girls
HowardinOz
Oh, GT....those pedals look nasty!
You're right, they do have the sawtooth thing happening.
So far I've polished one and the other is stripped.
I'm having trouble stripping the red off the new DX levers.
Still really having trouble deciding whether to powder the PK baby blue or polish it. Will cost about the same! Polishing is free (I do it) but would have to get the LG's chromed. Powder costs but would include the LG's?????
Decisions, decisions.
KOSY-MOTO
Oh wow yummie XBR girlies.. YOUR club pres. looks happy.. look at his hands any higher!! hehehe..
crossriderozzy
luis, he had just finish building them up and they are not for sale for anything! he he,
KOSY-MOTO
CrossriderOzzie: Actually NOW come to think of it!! I sold Billy some tyres late last year!! WOW small world!

Hal, she's considered ordinary looking over here. You'll have to come out here one day and check out the rest.
COASTY
LOL make sure you come to Surfers Paradise too! They lay on the beach with next to nothin' on! 30 meters from my work too! lol Oh lifes tuff on the gold coast.
Anyway , heres todays finished little number. Now with tires!
Mr.BMX
C'mon crozzy, only 1 pic of a hot blonde ??????
Don't tell me you wasted all your pics on bikes? :-)
Mr.BMX
Oh yeh, i gotta say i'm no fan of 'landscaped' bmx tracks. Concrete just doesnt say 'motocross' does it? (trying to think of a concrete motorcycle track hehehe).
Whats next, a bmx velodrome track?

Adding all the trimmings is just more stuff to hurt you!
Bring back car tyres for foxsake !!!!!

Hey JuniorVL's bike is looking pretty cool! so when's it hit the skatepark G?
COASTY
Saturday I hope! I've been workin 7 days (not today Yay!) I really need some gumwall tires. I don't like the all black look myself. Do they make gumwall 16" comp st or ramp tires? If so I need them or similar.
Oh I just remembered where I saw some. Golf Buggy wheels use a street tire in gumwall.
Nevermind.....
Oh and I have a complete car detailing set up on the bay. Trailer included.
KOSY-MOTO
anybody feel like a chat? I'm on Marty's website chatroom.. bring afew beers or milkshakes
COASTY
Well I found these tires in 16". Only problem is I can't find out what brand the tires are. They look pretty cool though!
Mr.BMX
weird, the kids are almost taller than mum ;-)

Aren't 16" gumwalls still sold in bikeshops today? like super-fast, hwa fong (comp3 copies) etc etc??
COASTY
I want street treads though. Like comp streets
dugga
I've seen 16" gumwalls at kmart - you could try there
prosight
Kmart and Big W have them..
meatpie
Chris can ya read your PM's & get back to me please??? Scotty
Mike Welsh
Hey Ausies,
Does it count if I WISH I was from Australia? If there is a such thing as a past life, I swear I was from Australia. I think I might move to your country some day. I think I would feel right at home. Alright well I'll stop blabbing now. G'day mates! Don't throw a shrimp on the barbie', that would be stupid!
peace,
~mike~
Pete Porker
Hey mike, well if you realise that we don't throw shrimp on the barbie, then i think you're on your way to being welcome!

Hey everyone else, check out a brief story and pics i submitted to BMX Press magazine on our Vintage Gathering, it's in newsagents tomorrow !
COASTY
Good stuff pete. Oh by the way the mono shock will commence this weekend.
Mike your more than welcome down here. Paul Hogan has a lot to answer for. Shrimp on the bbq, what [no, not this word either] came up with that rubbish. And as for kangaroos bouncin' down the street, that does happen. Not often but it did at one of my old houses.
