The send-traps on Shaw's ridge are coming back up again, probably due to the super dry conditions going on for weeks now. Otherwise all good.

Join the CareFlight Woodford to Glenbrook Classic 2014 and run or ride the Oaks Fire Trail through the beautiful Blue Mountains National Park from the town of Woodford down to the Euroka Clearing near Glenbrook.

Covering 25km of undulating bushland, the trail is incredibly scenic and a must for keen mountain bikers and trail runners. Participants are supported the full length of the track by Rural Fire Service crews stationed along the way, providing First Aid and drinks. A CareFlight doctor and St John Ambulance volunteers will also be in support.

Ideas on a used bike for $800ish

So this is an extension of my brakes thread... it kinda went off topic and turned into a 'what new bike should i buy' thread so here's a new one.

I've realised my $100 Fuji is basically rooted, I was going to spend a bit making it comfortable but after pulling a few bits apart last night it seems it just wouldn't be worth it. Everything I look at is pretty much shagged... worn, bent or broken. So I am in the market for a new bike and $800 sits alright with me. I would think about $1000 but it would need to be a MAD deal with pretty much guaranteed resale..

Port to Port

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

I am doing a new event end of May called Port to Port, it's a 4 day ride starting at Port Stephens and ending at Nobbys beach Newcastle. Unfortunately I can only do the last 2 days, Sat - Briar Ridge Winery to Richmond Vale (60km), Sun - Cams Warf to Nobby's Beach (45km). I have not done any rides in these areas, can anyone shed some light on what I might expect?

Tiler Licence Number Check, Online?

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

Need some help with selecting the right tradie for a job. Is it possible to check online where you can see if a tiler is licensed and currently valid? Is a licence even required in this case?

Overhaul or upgrade Tektro Novela brakes?

Hey guys,

The bike I've got at the moment (Fuji Nevada 3.0) has Tektro Novela brakes. They are pretty poor, I can't lock the back wheel no matter how hard I try and on a moderately steep slope front+back brake won't bring the bike to a stop. When pulling hard on the levers there is a spongy feel, as if the cables are stretching.

Tyres for 26" Fuji Nevada 3.0

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

I'VE COMPLETELY EDITED THIS POST, I had a change of heart Smiling I was going to buy a 29er but $400-500 would get me a bike almost identical to what I have now just with slightly bigger wheels, so now I'm just looking for good 26" tyres to fit put on my current bike as it has road tyres on at the moment and I want to play in the dirt Smiling

I am in Newcastle, my closest trails seem to be rocky/gravelly hard pack, also I will be riding the bike ~8km each way on the road from home to the trails and back.

Any advice on a set of tyres for a beginner on this bike would be greatly appreciated Smiling
