"In a pique of frustration on Monday night (and without checking any social media, gasp!), I invited both Duncan Gay and Mike Baird on a bike ride down Castlereagh St, nominally on December 5 at 11am. I offered to provide bikes and helmets, and the…"
"I have one too. For various reasons I need to remove the phone from the case often, which the manufacturer doesn't recommend – the screen protector has lifted slightly at the seam as a consequence. Otherwise it has been pretty good. Gives…"
"unfortunately this is true - they will report back to councillors about how much good they have done, they'll all tick that box and forget about it for a while and ignore other issues (we've done our part) and the issues it has created
"There are literally 000's of apartments being built on Mowbray and Centennial Ave. That road needs to be rebuilt to allow for all the users. I bet the Dulux sales rep is very happy. Repeat sales and all. Safety, such a…"
"Aside from all that, some parts of these green lanes are about 30cm wide, bordered by broken kerbing. There is even a painted bike sign that is half swallowed by a large storm water drain.

That is a seriously beautiful bike in the photos - what a lovely selection of bikes you have, I'm quite jealous! Do you have a photo of the Cyrene too? Hope to admire in person if I see you're bikes around the inner west.

It's going to be my first foray into Campagnolo:) But for 3 bikes you have the set I reckon.

I've so far had SPDs + Platforms on a few bikes and find them pretty easy to get in and out, and becasue the 'wrong side' is a platform, I don't have scary moments.
I'm using a Look with another bike and I swear it's caused me to use up a few of my lives, plus clipping in at the bottom of a slope is something I'm yet to master.
Speedplays are next on my list, and I've never heard of Bebops until you mentioned them.
Time for more research!
