Always loads of bikes in Darwin. Mostly cheap stuff but also a lot of good racers. They have a velodrome as well. Bike paths everywhere.

Read somewhere that Darwin has highest commuter procent of any capital in Australia. No idea if thats true.

One thing I like about Darwin is that quite a lot don't have helmets.

Maybe they are all happy and content with their lot. No need for our forum.

Or maybe they all out and about and therefor don't have time to sit at home on the internet.

I'm looking at this through dial up right now. The fact that this is a very quick forum to refresh is one of the things I really like (to see an example of a slow one, have a look at mtbr.com - shocking :shock: ).

Cheers,
Graeme

Nah, I just read slow .... ;)

Actually, the refresh on this site is only about half the speed of the broadband at my gallery. I admit the "link a photo" thread gets tedious sometimes, but most threads are quite alright. Load up a few windows at a time and they are all there by the time you've read the first one.

Cheers,
Graeme

i went to cycle zone in the city to help me put my bike back together after my flight up here. They were excellent and so i bought a spare bottle cage. I will return there for any further work.

the only thing with cycle zone is make sure that put bike back together properly

they overcharged me every little thing then didn't service my bike properly the back wheel worked it slowly loose and it wasn't that long after i got it serviced so i got a mate i worked with bike mechanic to fix it properly and didn't cost me arm and a leg.

so i had some good things with them but they seem to charge you a lot of money to service the bike than replace stuff that do sent need replacing
