I'm in Thredbo at the moment and keep looking at the lazy buggers getting the chairlifts to the top.
Anyone know of a way to ride up there?
I've looked at Google earth and maps and there seems to be a few access/maintenance trails around but are they too steep or not rideable?
Anyone been stupid enough to ride up there?
I bought a new Garmin 510 yesterday for the Fling. Charged it fully and used it for the race today for the first time.
After about 4hrs it went blank and I thought it might have run out of battery being the first charge and all that.
When I got it home I realised it's beeping every 5seconds and I've put it back on charge, pressed all buttons in different sequences and nothings happening. It's still blank and it's still beeping.
Anyone heard of this before and know what to do before I take it back to the shop tomorrow?
Note that this is "Withdrawn" so is here for archive purposes only.
170mm straight steerer but with 1.5inch bearing race so will fit a tapered headtube.

Three bikes were stolen last night from the back of a friends car on Avalon.
What's really bad is two of them were only a week old as my friends had only just decided to get back into Mtb.
The two new bikes were Black Scott Genius 740s which I believe are 650b
The third was a White Cannondale Taurine which is an older but still very nice 26inch bike.
They weren't insured yet so the owners are really spewing.
Just thought I'd put it out there in case anyone sees or hears something?
Ok, I'm selling my Scalpel 29er ( classified to come soon )
And am building up a new bike with a "normal" fork.
I've set my mind on a 2014 Sid XX 29er but have realised there's the World Cup version at around $200 extra.
I know its got a carbon steerer, it's got the same internals I think?
Does anyone know exact weights of both these forks?
If the weight advantage is negligible then I won't ( 'scuse the pun ) Fork out the extra cash for the World Cup version and stick with the Xx.
Martine and myself are packing up the van and heading off on a road trip at Xmas and taking in the south coast including Tathra etc on the way before we head over to Bright, Victoria and ending up in Jindabyne for our usual Wicked Wombat 8hr race on NYE.
Once in Victoria we'll be heading over to Bright but can anyone recommend any "must do" stop overs for a ride along the way?
I'd hate to drive all that way and find out later we'd missed some beautiful Mtb trails or just anything worth stopping and having a look at?
Thanks in advance,

So I've got the day off due to rain and I've taken the bearings out of my lefty front hub for replacement.
I've gone to the usual Lager Bearings in Artamon and they've relocated to Thornleigh. Another bearing shop on the same street have relocated to Silverwater!
Anyone know of any others that are around the North shore?

After feeling crap due to a virus at last years Fling i was determined to beat my place and time of 11th in Masters and 5hrs 10mins.
I knew i had a sub 5 in me somewhere. I just had to dig deep and find it.
Although I'd consider myself the fittest I've ever been ( having done 34 races to date this year) I knew i didn't have the distance in my legs as most of my training and racing have been sub 2hrs. Which in turn has brought my top end through the roof but has done very little for my endurance.
