  1. Thanks for the ride today fellas.
  2. It was good to get out there again after a few weeks break. Thanks for agreeing to show us around your playground. I knew I was in for a hard day when we were 20 or 30 mins in and you said 2.2km had been covered. Will definitely be back out there in the future for another ride Thanks to petern for the beer and petev for the sausages post ride. It was good to finally meet you as well Pete.
  3. I'll grab 1 x black/orange in medium thanks.
  4. Well hopefully you don't break to many parts. All the best over there, hope you get a finishers medal and most importantly have some fun.
  5. I'm assuming these bikes are later sold off. I'd also assume there would be a lot of bikes with broken bits. Does the organiser cover this in the package or is the entrant liable to pay for any damage to the bike on top of the package price. Just curious to know how this works.

    I'd get one if they became available
  7. Don't think anyone was really comparing 350/450. It sounds to me like most of the negative comments you got were more or less relating to mx bike for enduro type riding. Like cluffie said if your a gun you will make anybike work but for the majority of us trail hacks it's just easier and more fun to have a bike already suited to the type of riding we like. It sounds as if you've already made up your mind anyway and just fishing for positives to reinforce your decision. Either way I hope you enjoy whatever bike you ride. Nothing worse then having a bike that you end up hating.
  8. Pretty sure bearmx has a 350sxf. Just ask him how much he likes it for trail riding.
  9. I thought of that to. If your stationary the mesh would fill up for sure but I was of the thinking that the airflow while moving should push it through or away. I might need to do a bit of experimenting to see if this works or not.
  10. Iv been thinking about making my self a set of these screen mesh lenses or buying a set of air soft goggles for riding in the rain. they may not offer as good protection as a normal lens but they should be better then nothing at all. I run a dual layer lense so fogging isn't a massive issue. It's more to help with the smudging when you wipe the water or mud off. Anyone used something similar or have any thoughts on why they would or wouldn't work ?
  11. First off I'd like to thank dusty for organising such a popular ride. Also thanks to habs, Stefan, hoff and matt for their excellent sweeping skills and to everyone else who came out for the day. In all seriousness I was a little nervous when dusty asked me to take the lead as I hadn't ever led such a large and capable group before. After about the first 20 mins or so I settled in and started enjoying the day. Sorry to all for the few u turns we had to do when I got a little disorientated in the creek dazza. That photo was more of a ghostie then a major fall. For some reason third gear hill always seems to get the better of me. I think Marko just took that photo at exactly the right moment. I'll be saving that one on my laptop. 2 things I learnt from leading yesterday were that when leading you miss out on all the shenanigans that happen mid pack and that my air filter stays heaps cleaner Pudmud thanks for the beer and chat at the end of the day See you all on the next one.
  12. No shiny 300 here mate. I'm fitting them to a scratched up well used 250f. Thanks for the info. Ill make sure to grab myself a few inner tubes next time I'm at the bike shop.
  13. Ok phill. How was the bike cooling down contributing to this. Or was it just a coincidence?
  14. I'll hold you to that I'll let you know once they've been purchased and we can book in the upgrade then.
  15. Sshhh jay. No one knows about the last time. I am thinking about investing in tubliss after this time but the fitting of them is keeping me from doing so. If you help me fit them I'll go buy some tomorrow
