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.
