Hey. my name is bradley. I recently got a hardtail mtb. i realise this bike is not best suited for downhill or mtb'ing. BUT even still i love mtb'ing so i want to go for a ride with someone anytime. saturday is usually the best. EARLY IS GOOD. I do not have a car but am pretty good with trains and getting places. i live in inner city (sydney). Someone please lend a moment for a new kid, i know you were like me at one point.

New or used?

I was wondering if someone had any opinions or experience in regards to buying a bike new or used.

First question: Should I even consider buying a used bike?

Second question: If I choose to look for a used bike, what to look out for and how to check that it is in a decent condition?

At the moment I'm considering a hardtail 29er. Been mainly looking at the Gary Fishers and the Giant XtC

Below is a preview, click to read the full post
Saturday, 19 July, 2008 - 13:00
Meeting Point: 

Park in the dirt carpark at the entrance to the "Blue Gum Swamp Track" fire road

89 White Cross Road, Winmalee NSW

Hello all,

I have ridden through some trails at Winmalee a number of times and have found them both great fun to ride, and a bit secret as hardly anyone knows about them. For a long time I have wanted to share this ride with some more people I know. On Saturday 19th July, I will be in this part of the world, so I would like to invite you all to come along and see what it's all about.

New and keen for DH


I've just recently signed up to this site.

I live on the south side of sydney and am keen to make the trip north to check out the oxford falls DH.
So do you guys hook up on weekends and run shuttles? cause that would be sweet to get involved in, I'm getting kinda sick of pushing my bike back to the top of some local runs around my area...

So i guess its best to just keep an eye on upcomming rides yeah?
