lol lol. I'm in the same boat, I usually ride that circuit I described but haven't in a couple of years. My old bike broke a rear spoke and in trying to remove the cassette I lost the plot and destroyed the wheel. No worries, it was a flogged out old Giant Yukon anyway so I went out and bought a Scott MB.

I hated it, the front suspension drove me crazy because it would always move a little even fully locked and most of my riding was on the bitumen. Plus the gears were rubbish. Then I bought a racer with a decent gear set group but the narrow tires and twitchy steering was too much for this big bloke. I test rode your bike yesterday at moorooka honda ( I was in there sticky beaking for motorcycle stuff) and to my surprise they had a huge bicycle section. I'll get one as soon as the dude can get it in, I just hope I can live with the aluminum colour.

BTW, the rail trails are easy, all flat and good compacted roadbase stuff.
Good to see a fellow aussie here too btw.
