    My new tires

    Just got my new tires installed. Wow these tires make the bike look like a beast! Bike is ready and Waiting on the warm weather to hit the trails. Thanks to Zerogravity for the info. Two LBS were doubtful the tires would fit but after putting them on, the guy at the shop was impressed and learned something new. Heres a pic of the tires on the bike.

    What's the story behind the attachment you are using for the light to your fork?

    Looks excellent, so would like to get some info about what you got there to hold the light.
    You can have my Disc Brakes, when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

    I wouldn't be waiting for an answer too soon. The guy hasn't been on BF since 2012. It's a dinosaur thread.

    Brisbane is pretty good.

    Will be a lot better if they go ahead with a particular bike bridge they are apparently considering from the CBD to Wynnum.
