    Hello from Australia

    Hi all,

    I'm Kelvin from Australia.

    Been riding all my life but got my first road bike back in 2012 and never look back.

    I ride to work everyday and love steel bikes.

    Here is my daily which I have built up myself. No branding, just an unidentified Reynolds 653 frame and fork.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    Welcome to the forums Kelvin! Your bike looks slick! I'd love to test on the lonely roads of Tasmania (I've been there twice).

    The roads here in Tasmania aren't that lonely!! I've been trying to find a "lonely" road ... but all I'm getting are long streams of traffic.


    BTW - Rowan (my Tasmanian husband) and I lived north of Melbourne for 4 years, but we've just moved to Tasmania a few months ago.

    If you can't find a lonely road in Tasmania, you do something wrong! Half of it is unspoiled! I lived in Ringarooma village, lots and lots of great wild rides!
