Rob Berry replied to tonydelyall's discussion Rack and mudguards on one set of eyelets – handy hint
"It looks like the fender is attached to the brazed-on eyelet and the rack to the new eyelet you have connected, is that right? If so, I'd suggest swapping that around - you really want the rack to be attached to the frame."

Where are our bikes?

Posted on May 5, 2012 at 10:36am 11 Comments

I think this one is a bit tough, so I will give you a few clues:

1. These aren't technically our bikes. We had to leave ours at home and rent these for the day but they did the job well, nice light aluminum hybrids with Shimano Alfine 8 Speed hubs.

2. We were about to stop for lunch…

Berry Bike Project

Posted on November 20, 2011 at 10:19am 8 Comments

Fiona wants a new bike, and what she wants she tends to get!

 

Her Breezer Uptown is great for getting her around comfortably, but after my debut in Audax she has expressed the desire for something a little more suited to longer rides so we can do them together. Unfortunately, there isn't much money to spend at the moment, so we decided it would be fun to try to do it a little cheaper, building it up ourselves using second hand components where possible - it should be quite fun…

Steel is real.

Posted on June 22, 2011 at 12:58pm 29 Comments

This morning I was happy to be riding on a steel frame.

 

 

Cruising straight down Enmore Rd at around 40km/h on my newish Fuji Touring, I saw ahead of me near the Enmore Theatre a car on the other side of the road, stationary, indicating to turn right. When I was about 20m from the…

Who deserves to be yelled at?

Posted on June 17, 2011 at 11:01am 6 Comments

I got yelled at this morning because apparently I "should be in the left lane".

 

I was a bit surprised to be yelled at because at the time:

 

a. I was on Enmore Rd near the intersection with King St, so there are multiple lanes (and there wasn't another car for 50m in front of the person in the lane to my left who was yelling).

b. I was going around 30 km/h and maintaining a 5-10m gap between me and the car in front of me.

c. I was about to turn…

Cooks River path is probably what I mean. Will definitely give it a go. Any idea where you get on it at Tempe? :)

Yep, but Mr O's post is less ambiguous and is clearly referring to a post which has been deleted and it is rather insightful into that poster's motives.

Except as I have just noted, he is invoking your name. Oh well, we just have to get him to delete his post as well.

Or, here's a good idea, Damian could do it!!
