My track bike is a Fuji 2.0 with Dura ace wheels but will upgrade the frame later on this year to a full Carbon Fibre frame. My road frame is a Scott Foil full Carbon running Ultegra components.



In training mode.

Do footpath bikes count Foo? Like mine:
Of course they do Esty. I see and talk to lots of people that ride bikes and they say.....Oh ours isn't as good as yours and my reply is.............That doesn't matter, because you're out riding and enjoying yourself and that's all that matters! ;)

I don't know if it is appropriate for this thread but motivation and emotional state can do a lot to enhance one's speed on the bike.

I know this because when I was a kid I was at the beach and saw a parsnip floating in the water, I retrieved it and was holding it in my hand wondering what to do with it. Then I spotted another kid that I didn't like (Jamie) and I biffed it at him. Hit him square on the head. He became enraged and rushed at me threatening to kill me. I thought discretion was the better part of valour so I hopped on my bike (British Empire 28" and 3 speed Sturmey Archer gears) and lit out for home.
Jamie hopped on his bike (26" no gears) and chased me. I drew away quite easily and left him panting in my wake.

From this experience I concluded that fear is a greater motivator than anger.

Lots of stuff floats around in the ocean Troy. And no, he didn't catch up with me at school because I had some big mates and it wouldn't have gone well for him.

No need to tell me what floats around in the ocean esty...I've seen lots of chit floating about... Usually after big storms and the sewer plant can't handle the treatment process of things and pump stuff straight out...

Very solid frame, triple wall rims, truvativ cranks, hydraulic disc brakes, mazocchi forks and other stuff lol

Paid $900 with staff discount and it still has the original 3500km ive put on it. Good bike!! Still got it. I need to ride more....

I have one of these.

https://www.reidcycles.com.au/x-trail-29er.html

Flatbar, 29inch. I was juggling between the 26 and the 29.. 26 was easier to turn but the 29 cruised along a lot better.

Free servicing too, not that it has needed it.
