Suitable spot for FTP test in Sydney

G'Day Folks,
Not totally MTB, but related in a way. Seeking ideas for a suitable stretch of road in Sydney for FTP testing.

I have tried Centennial Park and Kurnell in the past however Ive been held up in the past at both and both also have slight downhill sections that made it really hard to keep the power high for a continued effort.

Can anyone think of stretch of road lasting over 20mins, either dead flat or slight steady uphill, no lights, no stops and no downhill bits?.

PS - Im inner west but happy travel 50-100km to find a good spot.

Many thanks for any ideas.
Cheers,

My first Convict 100

I am going to ride the C100 for the first time this August. I was glad that it got moved as I was not available for May.

So the important questions that I am hoping that someone will be able to help me on.

1. I am reasonably fit for a 50+ year old ... Ride twice a week for 50k plus each time and don't mind the hills.
Q - Do I need to train more that this for the 100?

2. I have ridden roads bikes for the past 10 years but recently - 12 months ago - bought a MTB and love it as a change up from the road bike.

Fairly Dry all round. A couple of trees down and bit or erosion caught me by suprise. Other than that all good.

Do you have more information?

Wheelset advice

Hey guys,

I have a 2008 Reign X0 with Totems on the front and a Fox RC3 on the rear. It has Minions wrapped around an unknown rim but the rim has "dirtbag DH" stickers on it. It's a downhill-ish bike and I like to ride DH, but there's not a lot of that sort of action around Newcastle so I'm thinking about trading in the VERY heavy wheels/tyres for something a bit lighter to make riding in places like Glenrock a bit easier.

Help with new bike for training on.

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Would like some help as I have a Merida big nine carbon team bike but would like to have a second bike to train on. Just test rode the Trek superfly 9 and really like the bike but I plan on doing some XC events the Convict 100 as well as some 4hr races this year. So I'm looking for some help I what bike I should train on that won't make me slow on my main bike if that makes sense.

xx1 noise

I have a creaking noise in my xx1 crankset when under load in low gears (big chain rings). I have only been riding for 9 months so any help would be much appreciated. I have read a lot online but but I was hoping someone may have experienced this problem. Thanks in advanced.

Oaks single track (incl. realignment) - Feedback and Maintenance

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Following the opening of the single track realignment in Q2 last year there was a big push to get some feedback presented to the powers that be. I'm wondering if anyone is in the know about whether or not anything has come of this feedback and if we are likely to see any more work in the park in the foreseeable future? It’s been such a great addition, would be a shame if the work is not continued.

The Oaks update for 28 Jan

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Area: 
The Oaks
Status: 
Green/Open

Ridden 3x in January - in pretty good condition overall. Sandy in places, long & deep enough to catch out the unwary. Single track between the gate & the new realignment becoming overgrown - eye protection an absolute must. Realignment in excellent condition, only one corner towards the end is showing signs of a heavy cut being worn into it (no surprise given the natural speed & line of approach from the previous corner) otherwise has bedded in nicely, at its best a day or two after rain.

Do you have more information?
