  1. Some pump track action from champs Jeff IMG_0898.MOV IMG_0908.MOV
  2. I was at Maydena last week at MTB Nats. I was assistant chef and in charge of DH and Pump Track. So I spent most of the week standing at the bottom of the DH track. I am still smashed from a very big week. Quite stressful with some nasty crashes including Troy Brosnan during his race run. The usual broken collar bones and wrists but we also had a femur a Troy ended up breaking his leg. Ill get a ride in later this week and on the weekend.

  3. Mike Did you survive the RT race and get to Cotter Pines? Jeff
  4. Back to Cotter Pines today. Great place, lovely flowing trails. Any one heading to National Champs in Tasmania in February? Jeff
  5. https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/1978-datsun-260z?utm_source=website&utm_medium=share Tidy 260. Winning bid $81,200. Jeff
  6. Ryan Strut brace won’t change anything as it’s not body flex causing the wheel to rub on the strut and its not flexing in the strut. It will be wheel flexing or play in the wheel bearings. The stub axle and strut are as one and very solid so will not flex relatively to each other. Check wheel bearing play and or add a spacer. Jeff
  7. New age old school craftsman at work. Jeff
  8. Big XC race weekend coming up in Canberra at Stromlo presented by CORC, two weeks before Nat Champs. 29 and 30 January. Saturday is Junior World Series (JWS) inc UCI C2 XCO and Sunday is a National T1 race. Should be a great weekend of racing. Saturday will also be round 1 of AusCycling UCI XCO series. Beers at the Handelbar after racing. Race Director Jeff
  9. Donation to this web site and it’s yours. Having a bit of a clean up and rediscovered the towbar that was attached to the rear of my 240 when purchased. Never going back on my car! If anyone wants it it’s yours. Pickup only from Canberra. If no one wants it the steel will be repurposed. I’ll put it under the house in the short term. Yes I painted the shed floor. Jeff
  10. I purchased new belts from https://www.seatsafe.com.au/products/ I have a standard lap sash in passengers seat and a 3 point road harness on drivers side Jeff
  11. It’s a great time of life when the kids start purchasing their own bikes. You still get the thrills but without the expense. Daughters new bike arrived today. It was delivered to our house so I could build it for her. Only down side is that she is going to be so fast on this dam thing. Classic how you can get a box from Germany in a week but cannot get click and collect from Bunnings in that time. Jeff
  12. Lockdown jigsaw puzzle’s . Nice work Locky. Jeff
  13. We might all be bogans in our own way. Your car Rudi your choices. Not my cup of tea but that’s my choice. Thumbs up Jeff
  14. Couple of very nice cars in this and a chat with the Klassic fab guys at about 29 min. Worth watching. On my bucket list of events to visit one day. Jeff
  15. Haha. Lucky it’s within 5k of home and in the same district. Jeff
  16. Morning ride at the arboretum today. Wonderfully weather. Jeff
  17. Actually very little weight gain over standard breaks. Each MK63 (copy) calliper is less than 100g heavier than standard calliper. The discs are comparable. Yes there are lighter overall options but you would probably only notice the difference at high speed on a race track. These fit easily under 15” wheels and I think there is a historic appeal to this setup. Jeff
  18. Lockdown has provided the opportunity to get a few maintenance checks done. I wanted to check the front hubs and wheel bearings. So while doing this I took the opportunity to swap the front brakes out for the copy MK63 callipers and disks that I have had sitting around for some time now. Awaiting brake lines to finish the swap off. Jeff
  19. If you look at the parts manual it may help you gather some of the information you seek. It may take time to decipher but it may be an interesting journey. If you donate to the site you can get access to a digital copy of the manual in the donating members area. Jeff
