Buy some Magura Louise Bats or go up from there in the Magura range and you will never regret it They have an amazing guarantee and service here in AU and they are awesome brakes Very quiet and no vibration. I run the venti rotors also.

I called up my bike store today and told them my tale of woe, took the bike in with a slab (they were actually closed and cleaning up the place). Both lines had air in them, One of the levers is fucked (o-ring has pushed passed the piston) they chucked another, nicer lever (o face) on it so I'll be good to go tomorrow and the weekend, then bring it back next week for a warranty job.

Pretty happy with that.

So, I ended up buying myself a 2014 Trek 3900 disc and a 2014 Trek fx 7.1 for the girl

First ride out, she bites the dust.

I love bikes.

That could read that a few ways.

I'm guessing your bike came a cropper on it first ride? What happened?

No, it was the missus who decided her bike looks better upside down... She took a corner a touch too fast for her abilities!

Bought the XT brakes.

Was told to take it easy until they bed in.



They seem quite powerful already.

Guys,

I am looking for some advice.

I have changed jobs recently and no longer have a city car spot. As a result, I have been riding my bike to the station.

Now the bike I have at the moment is some trendy fixey bike which I bought years ago off the internet in some delusional state of mind (thinking I will never ride it).

Now I am riding it everyday, it seems I am tightening/pumping/re-adjusting something everyday - the allen key is wearing down to a nub. The bike literally feels like it's going to break at any moment so I am thinking I should buy a real bike.

Now just so we are clear, my ride is all of 5 mins in the morning and I chain it up at the station and ride home in the evening. I ride it on the footpath for most of the massive journey.

Other points to consider:

- I am 6"2' and weigh 108kgs
- When my son is a little older, I wouldn't mind sitting him on the back in a seat or tow him so needs to be sturdy
- I may ride for longer trips on the weekend but will still be under an hour in total

Now, I have no idea what type of bike I should get (mountain/road/other)?

Am I being reasonable budgeting $500?

I am reluctant to get another bike off the net as I don't want to assemble it (because it seems I am having to tighten something everyday) but not completely opposed.

I welcome any suggestions/advice you guys have.

Just pick up a cheapish MTB with a lockable fork and throw some slicks on it I reckon. Will give you the same performance as a hybrid but will be better if ride on gravel, dirt and grass..... and I know that in Sydney, a lot of footpaths are dodgy as fuck so a stronger MTB would be preferable for me as I'm a big guy.

Buying online isn't the best..... just go to a bike shop and see what they can do. Are you in Sydney?

I know one of my friends uses an Avanti Montari 26.2 with slicks for his commute. Heavier than some of the other options but it seems like a good all round bike.

There's some good 2nd had deals on gumtree and ebay usually but you could get caught out if you don't really know what to look for.

... and if you're going to be leaving it at the station, get a good chain/lock but don't be surprised if your shiny new bike isn't there one afternoon.

I never leave my nice bikes chained up at stations, pubs etc.... not worth the risk.

I have a GT Avalanche 3.0 MTB that I bought about 7-8 years ago for about $450 thats I periodically use for commuting, it's held up well and gets taken out for the occasional proper trail ride too. Only came with calliper brakes back then but I imagine it'd come with discs standard these days. Fork isn't lockable but for 5 min each way I don't think that really matters, I was doing about 100km a week on mine a couple of months back.

I'd go second hand as well... at worst it'll look less shiny and less appealing to steal. decent quality commuter bike about 3 years old should do the trick.

also start hitting up your local council for bike lockers at the station, then you can get something half decent.

Guys,

Thank you for your responses.

In regards to chaining up at the station, my bike is literally at the top of Caringbah station stairs on the main street with a heap of foot traffic. So I am not overly concerned about it being pinched (am I being completely naive?).

Donkey, I am not opposed to buying 2nd hand - but you are right, I have no idea what I am looking at.

In regards to brands, any particular ones I should avoid?

I have seen HASA and Woodworm bikes on Ebay - anyone know about them?

chain it up and then chain it up again, even then I wouldn't trust it.

The important thing to remember about is people is that they're ****s. Every last one of them.

(I had my BMX pinched off the platform at Camberwell and I'm still bitter about it.)

Shocks and disc brakes are the biggest pitfall. the rest you can see or 'feel' with a quick ride. People selling bikes I find come in 3 shapes, people that bought it and have never really used it, people upgrading, people who stole a bike.

Cheers Bracko.

As mentioned, my current bike is a fixey that has no shocks and caliper brakes so I have no point of reference.

Any advice on brands to back or avoid?

The brands I am seeing at reasonable prices seem to be Reid, Trek, HASA, Woodworm, Giant etc...

Very naive unfortunately. Certain bikes appeal to thieves more than others obviously but if some cockhead wants to steal it, they will. It's rare that anyone will stop them or even realise what they're doing. Getting a very good($) chain will make it difficult for them though.

About a month back I lost the key for a dodgy lock I used to leave my pub bike on King St at Newtown overnight. Went back the next day with a hammer and just belted the lock off and nobody said anything. I even took a couple of service receipts and old pictures with me just in case anyone hassled me.

Don't touch Hasa or Woodworm. Brands like that are a step up from K-mart bikes but they're cheap for a reason. Stick to reputable brands. If you're in the Shire, you've got a mad selection of bike shops. Fraser Cycles at Taren Point, Kirrawee Cycles, Chain Reaction at Cronulla etc. They all have listings on here http://www.bikeexchange.com.au/

yeah, unfortunately the major brands are expensive for a reason. on the plus side, you generally will get a good frame which you can have confidence in for a long time (or buying second hand)

Giant Boulder would do the trick - they're about $500 new but you could halve that going 2nd hand

I recently bought an Avanti mountain bike for $160 off Gumtree. Suits my purposes (knocking about the suburb with the kids). They're the next bracket down from Giant in quality, but they're good enough if you want a cheap and reasonable quality everyday knockabout.
Never mind the bollocks

Just my opinion here but I strongly disagree with that. They are less desirable and the name isn't as well known as Giant but the quality of the product is just as good as equivalent models. In fact I think they offer better products for the same or less money when it comes to lower end models.

I had an Avanti which was a great bike for the price, I did about 12,000kms on it before upgrading.

Never had any issues.

Interesting:
Belgian cyclist also tests positive

Maybe something to Rogers story after all.

Maybe the UCI shouldn't be racing in China if they know for a fact that the food sources are suspect. But we all know these organisations chase the all mighty dollar.

If I'm Rogers, at a UCI sanctioned event in China, I'd be suing their asses off if I get suspended at a race they know full well could be detrimental to my health due to tainted food sources.

Wouldn't be surprised to find out a few more cyclists test positive.

I went and had a proper bike fit yesterday with a physio that was recommended to me by a few cyclist friends.

He changed my cleat position, dropped my handlebars, moved my saddle horizontally and vertically and it now feels like I'm on a new bike.

I feel a lot safer and like I'm getting a lot more out of my pedalling, once I'm fully used to the new position I really think I'll have a lot more power overall.

Thing was I was pretty confident going in that I had it all set up right, but I was really so far off the mark.

So I would recommend it to anyone who has been experiencing any shoulder, leg or arm soreness, feels they should be getting more power or feels they aren't as quite well balanced as they should be.

Being a physio it was partially covered with private health insurance too.

In conclusion, bike fit, would recommend A+++

Was just out for a casual ride with friends. Came across a tiny little skate park. It didn't go well. Went up a three foot high half pipe thing, the bike stopped then went backwards. I went over the bars.

Smacked my chin on the top of the half pipe, lucky it wasn't my teeth. Smacked my knees on the pipe. Curled up in a fetal position for a bit, then went back to friends place to ice up my knees, which immediately turned black.

Bikes ok though. Well, cheap blinky and bell are fucked, but my Christmas Cateye is ok.

Don't think I'm going to be dancing too much tonight though.

ITM bikers, I've been riding to work on the shared pathways of Melbourne lately and I have a few questions about hand signals and the etiquette thereof. Indicating I understand (I'm not a total potato) but I often see people making signals with their left hand behind their back as we approach other cyclists/pedestrians. What's the dealio? What means what, and should I be passing the information back to anyone behind me? I kinda feel like I should be. TIA.

left hand around the back means that there is someone ahead on the left hand side (most likely a pedestrian/jogger or slow rider) and they are going to overtake them.

right hand around the back means that there is someone ahead on the right hand side (on-coming traffic) - so don't cross the middle of the path.


generally people will do these signals if they sense they have someone right behind them and feel it's in their best interests to do so (ie for safety)

I don't tend to do it as I don't like people taking my hand signals as some sort of guarantee that they will be safe if they follow me during an overtaking manoeuvre.


but the times of day I ride the paths I don't really have this issue, during busy times though people tend to treat some shared paths as racetracks and following randoms with absolutely no margin for error, which I think is just asking for trouble.



in other news, 3 peaks on Sunday, anyone else doing it?

I am cycling through the following emotions at the moment

apparently spirit fingers to the left or right mean gravel coming up but that could have someone bullshitting an obviously clueless new guy.
