And for Mitchy...the crosslights worked well although playing with tyre pressure and pinched the rear...at least I worked out the minimum

2013 Focus Mares CX I bought as a frameset and will be running Ultegra6700. Waiting on some Zipp bars, stem and seatpost, as well as Avid shorty Ultimates and some tyres to go on the R1s......love the colourway on this frameset - only reason I bought it...hahaha

Hahaha - too true mate - no CAAD10 that's for sure (although I bought the first CAAD10 for the same reason - the colourway!). My first carbon bike, so I'm champing at the bit to get it out for a play.

Your Giant looks good - I like the colours on that too!

Warragul CC had a CX race today and the Mares performed flawlessly - it is a flash CX rig! I even got a bit of mud on it...hahaha

Ad-hoc course made up with pickets and tape mate - most of the velodrome infield and some outside with a bit of a sharp pinch and mud thrown in - was a whole lot of fun. Nothing permanent though, as the site is multi-use.

Sounds like the courses that we had in Brisbane... They get better with rain

Cheers. Sorry bout the multiple posts. Tapatalk was acting a little crazy.

Yep I have since seen a few pics of the course. And over the years I have done stuff from footy training to walk for life inside that velodrome.

I suspwct lardner park would be a place to set a nice course. Every year at farm world the car park sorta becomes a defacto CX course :grin:
