    G'day from Melbourne

    Hi everyone. I'm a fair-weather commuter from Melbourne, Australia. I keep coming back to this site when googling for gear, so I thought I would sign up and say Hi.

    Great information here, thanks for that.

    Peter.

    Hi Cbad & burton, thanks for having me.

    I ride a Learsport (local company around here): http://www.learsport.com.au/images/lear7700%20small.jpg, when taking the long way to work. I've cracked two frames and on to my third. But, I have to say the warranty service is very good.

    I ride a Norco mountain bike (circa 2000) when going the short way. It's got knobby tires, and it's too small for me but for some reason I'm still enjoying it.

    I have a dream about getting a commuter bike that's big enough for me (6'6 and 115kgs) and has panniers, gear hubs, dynamo, the whole works. But they're pretty hard to find down here.
