Built only yesterday this R5ca is one of the nicest (and most expensive) bikes we have seen here at TBSM. Fitted with the 7900 Dura-Ace group, Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher wheels, 3T LTD bar/stem/post and a Selle SMP Full Carbon saddle this R5ca weighs in at just 6.2kg (without pedals).
With this group configuration the R5ca has a RRP of $17,999. Head into our retail store at 44 Pitt St Mortdale to check it out in the flesh!
The long awaited ‘Strength in Numbers’ from Redbull and Anthill has finally arrived!!
Apparently its ” a rally call to connect all mountain bikers, regardless of location or language or discipline. The film captures a true way of life, from the world’s best pros to those who ride purely for the love of the sport. Shot over two years in some of mountain biking’s most iconic locations”
2013 Fox stuff has landed and is available in store and online. New for this year is the CTD (climb-trail descend) adjustment system which allows you to change your set-up on the fly. Also new for 2013 is the D.O.S.S (Drop On Steep Sh*t) height adjustable seatpost.
Last weekend was the second and final round of the Rocky Trail Rollercoaster series at Mount Stromlo. We drove down to Canberra early Sunday to be ready for the first shuttle runs. The course was great, it included skyline, luge, the new fun park, then on to the bottom of the 4x track. The best time on the day was a 9min40sec, l did a time of 10min50sec which l was happy with. My bike of choice was the Pivot 5.7, it was a great bike for that track but you could of used any XC or AM bike for the day and have had fun. In all
it was a good day out on the trails at Stromlo … see you out there the next time.
