please do! we're all keen to find out what you got in your bag!


Well, atm Cinelli SuperCorsa, Pinarello Asolo, Serotta (8 years old is retro isn't it? Carbon stays, hmmm, maybe not that one), Jim Bundy MAX, Merckx Criterium, Frezoni Genius, Geoff Scott SL - all in boxes waiting to be built. + Motorola Merckx MX Leader that's getting the full treatment by Joe Cosgrove as we speak.

That's just the retro toys - I do have a CAAD9, fixie and some dirt toys as well.

I am sure there's more in the garage, but I forget sometimes .....

Hence my signature .... if it doesn't fit, it's getting sold.

Four riders braved the elements, risked life & limb to participate in yesterdays Retro Riverloop.

munga aboard his Raleigh, Dan aboard the Viner, vaeske aboard the F Moser & moi on the Vertex.

A few detours had to be taken due to the massive flooding & cyclonic conditions but all made it back to the cafe safely.



Actually to be truthful, it sprinkled only very slightly, Dan counted 14 bikes (3 were kids with their dad walking, a few were at the markets & 2 or 3 along South Bank) which meant about 3 actually riding around the riverloop area, there was also a distinct lack of walkers & joggers, but all were very happy, we got a smile & a 'good morning' from everybody we greeted. It seems that rain keeps not only cyclists, joggers & walkers at home but also all the Mr/Mrs/Ms Cranky's too

Anyway here's the vid's-

Good to see that some things, like a pottymouth, can't be washed away by a sprinkling of rain ;)

I got the Victory Tri A home. It's not in great shape, but hopefully it should clean up well.

So where does Suntour Edge sit in the retro pecking order?
