Daisy Hill

I have been meaning to go over to Daisy Hill reserve for a while now and finally got around to it today. Daisy Hill is one of the few areas around Brisbane where you can ride off road without getting the hippies upset.

The weather was clear as I got there, but 10min into my ride it started to rain. I should have put the mud tyres on when I complained about them earlier - oh well. Daisy Hill is a fantastic setup lots of tracks running everywhere and I was a bit worried about getting lost so I just did loops from car park and back.

Very happy with the new cranks I put on, they are a real improvement as they offer a much better gear selection when riding up the hills.

I only saw 2 people out there and guess what - one was riding a cyclocross bike! I was so happy to see someone else out riding cross. I was tempted to wait around in the car park and check out his rig but I was wet and hungry.

I will be heading back out to Daisy Hill from time to time as there is so much riding to do out there it will be hard to resist.

Yamaguchi Single

Nice Yamaguchi single speed with disk brakes, it also sports a flattened top tube with integrated seat post clamp. It's not my kind of thing but it's different.

From here.

New Cranks

Got my new cranks in the mail yesterday so threw them on this morning. Now running a compact setup with 46/34 rings, should make riding off road heaps easier. Sorry for the crappy phone picture but you get the point.

Next mission is a new set of wheels, but only when the budget will allow them, so don't hold your breath.
