Went out for some hill climbs and got this bit of footage. The uphill footage isn't quite as exciting.

Nice. You will go faster in the drops. You were braking a fair bit as well. What top speed did you hit?

Nice, and I know the descent too! Haven't climbed it yet though - only been up Mills Road East.

My confidence for descending was improving and I was spending more time in the drops and less braking until one day I got the speed wobbles at 70km/h down Welshpool Rd. :shock: Back to square one!

oh yes i know this. usually i go into the drops for the downhill but was a bit more cautious this time around due to some close calls last time i went. Rather play it safe and build up my confidence. Max speed was 63km/h. Last time i got up to 71km/h

Never had speed wobbles on my Masi on any of my roadies. On a hardtail MTB years ago I got wobbles doing 60kph and didn't like it. I got no qualms shooting down Jarrahdale rd doing 80kph. Armadale Rd I know I would exceed 80kph as I've been down it before and I was braking keeping under 80!

Never have experienced wobbles due to speed. What worries me about the vid are the side streets and driveways. Living in the sticks I sometimes forget what urban streets look like.

Great descent, isn't it? I followed some skateboarders down there a while back (you can't really see them until the end of the clip). Now that takes some balls!

There must be a bogan infestation near there. Lots of their tracks visible from about 1:40. :|

On the upside, the road seems to be smooth-ish. Better than my local equivalent at Akuna Bay. :)

Hmmm, so is the other 4WD at the bottom of the decent?

Definately no 4wds were used in the making of this video - i could put the uphill riding in the video but its pretty slow going. Heres a link to strava for the ride - www.strava.com/activities/80860562

Right...there was one parked just off to the side of the road where you started your ride, so just figured, you drove up in one and left the other at the bottom, to drive back up again.

Canning Mills is the best road near Perth for testing your mettle as far as downhill speeds go. I've got a strava ride that tops out at 91kmh from that descent. Not entirely convinced of its accuracy especially considering I wasn't trying to set any records. Was bloody fast though.

Just one question, did you have life insurance before trying it?
