  1. What is 'Mixed Terrain' in your region?

    And the question is really how does your region handle 'gravel grinder' or 'mixed terrain' Audax rides.

    In Australia besides the normal road riding we have a Dirt Series whereby completing Dirt...
  2. You can't buy the Deluxe as a complete bike, it...

    You can't buy the Deluxe as a complete bike, it is available as a frame only, so you have to build it up. Less brainwork, no build will be involved with the BF or Brompton but they might be suited to...
  3. If while building a bike you're running short on...

    If while building a bike you're running short on cable housing then you can always add on a short length using some sort of cable joiner, either a double-ended joiner or simply by using an inline...

    I had an older version of the USB-recharging AXA light rated to 50 Lux, I don't know about this 'enough light to see 3 feet in front of me' but the acute drop in light when going from normal speeds...

    I've been told that the deadline is still 30th April, sorry. If they don't get their 100 riders by then maybe you can register but that's a maybe, I couldn't get a definite on that, nor if the...

    Most of the local Audaxers down this way are fairly active riders, the calendar Audax rides are only once a fortnight and a mixed bag of ride types and distance so hardly of use for training. Many...

    Yes a GPS is unnecessary for the average rider but if you're in new territory, if you're training, if you're doing a 'permanent' randonnee course, if you want to look later on a map and see just...

    I'm going to query the deadline, I'm not sure how they did it last time but yes 6 weeks would be better. On the other side of our big island they did a 1200km with a month's notice, there's also one...
  9. 2014 Perth-Albany-Perth 1200km Audax

    The 5th edition of this event is on later this year, on 6-9 October which is mid-Spring down here in Australia. This event is getting more popular and already more than half the expected 100 riders...

    I'm in Perth and have toured a fair bit in our southwest regions. July/August is generally the wet months but the rain in Perth is not heavy. You'll find the climate is mediterranean if not like LA....

    Here they are called 'pram ramps' and usually only found at each end of a path hence the need to exit via a kerb sometimes. The answer for the OP might be to look at the trike's tyres. My Greenspeed...

    Yes, B&M has upgraded their lights. at least by bringing in several new models, some available this week. And no, they aren't made to be disassembled or upgraded by consumers. Here's the pdf from B&M...

    These would be rivnuts (or called rivet nuts or nutserts) and okay for bidon mounts on the main frame triangle. Installation requires a hole much larger than the bolt, you wouldn't want to make that...

    February is when Perth gets the stinking hot easterly winds and days straight of 40 degrees C. Look up what wind patterns are happening on the Nullabor at that time (as that'll be the most critical...

    Just got to ask (because Ebay purchases can always be trusted) but is it possible that this isn't a Brooks saddle, perhaps is a knockoff?

    I had to put a rack on a friend's racing bike, converted for commuting. No eyelets top or bottom so I used the Tubus seatstay clampset...

    I have the B&M taillight on the rear mudguard, a couple of Serfas seatstay lights strapped either side of this on the verticals. The B&M is bright enough with the hub dynamo but the other lights are...

    Wellgo has a double-sided SPD version as well as the flat pedal pictured at the start of this thread, I have both and since they both use that QRD fitting on the crank they are interchangable, that...

    The best thing to come out of this is a few variants of design and more availability of parts because the bigger bike names are now into supplying cargo bits. The Trek's folding wideloaders looked...

    The 2nd bag looks a bit like a Fastback Norback, although that's a little longer and stores the pump inside. Plus the zipper is near the top of the bag, yours appears to be near the belly, is this...

    The eventual failure of that take-apart frame will be at the bolt holes, although you're more likely to firstly see distortion in the alum sleeve. If you find that one day the frame tubes slide in...
