Hi allJust about to join the cargo bike cult (One of us! One of us!) with an electric assist Mundo.Any suggestions for upgrades or additional kit to go with it.Primarily to be used for shopping and…Continue
"We know you like the extremes Andrew, 40 degrees, not warm enough, sub zero, too warm, all day/night rain on gravel, not enough, looking forward to the swim segments across flooded creeks. I suppose TransOz will be your next ride?
Well done Andrew,…"
"Great effort Chris. I certainly didn't envy you doing that solo.
We got into Hornsby just as the rain started, but it was solid all morning from there to Springwood.

You say your climbing is compromised by three factors - gearing/fitness/fatness.
On gearing, what do you have? A standard/semi- or compact chainset? What is the largest…"
"I've proposed one to start from Shellharbour City Centre in August. A loop up Macquarie Pass - Mittagong - Berrima - Wingello - Fitzroy Falls return
