Great video about a bike collector from ABC Open. Sorry, can't work out how to do the embed.

That is just GREAT. to quote...
..."Riding a bicycle is freedom"

I think "Iron Hanglider" is the best monica description I have seen of what I think it is like to ride a bicycle....full credit.

That is cool. I've taken a cheap singlespeed into work (leave it there in the cage all the time) for a get out at lunchtime bike and i went for a quick spin today, with my old V1 Pro helmet and suit on, and he is right, riding a bike just makes you smile, doesn't matter how you do it. :)

You're right about the ute too scott, v nice.

yeah but just watch out for the $300 odd fine for "leading animal from vehicle".
