Tell us about your bikes
I have three bikes: a Salsa Caballero dual suspension MTB, a custom built Baum Wills titanium Touring bike and a Scott Contessa Pro carbon fibre road bike.
About Me:

I did work at BNSW for a while, but now I just love riding and I think cyclists are some of the most likeable people in the community.
