Top job, very impressive. Looks like a standard Hobart day.
Where abouts did you hit your top speed?
What gearing are you running?

Nice one Rob!

Ive only made it to the springs and am new to roadies but some of that Pinnacle road must be some of the slowest bitumen ive ridden on :twisted: I never knew how much difference the surface can make and up there its just adding insult to injury eh :lol:
Obviously it helps with grip for the cars when things get a bit frosty up there. All I know is ive ridden the same kinda gradient on newer hotmix and its like having a built in tailwind 8)

Cheers
Baldy

ps: was working today but I'll try and catch up for a ride after xmas is done n dusted.....which will be by mid arvo on friday :mrgreen:
