    Optimistic sellers

    Checking out the trademe listings, as you do, and there seems to a lot of old bikes from the 70's mostly that people are trying to and in some cases selling for pretty ridiculous prices. Bikes like GT Suzuki's, CB Honda's and a plethora of other plain old crap. Those bikes were not very good in...

    Dyneema jeans from Blackwood Safety

    Thread Starter: GazzaH

    Spotted this jeans ad in the Blackwoods Safety flier. "Dyneema" is marketed as "the world's strongest fibre", an ultra long polythene molecule for the chemists among us. It has several advantages over Kevlar (aramid). I doubt even Dyneema jeans are as road-rash-resistant as decent leathers...

      Anybody got room on the back for a young lass? Her mum passed from breast cancer a couple years ago and is pretty keen on attending. She'd need picking up/dropping off from the city, or could potentially travel some ways to you. PM me if you're keen to help out.

      Does she have her own gear? If no-one else puts up their hand (she'd need to have her gear), I can help, but I'm also on escort duties for the ride, hence preferring for someone else to assist.

      I've got some gear I can chuck her in.

      Is this still on given the weather? and are you aware that usually this carpark is reasonably busy on a Sunday morning as markets are held here every Sunday? (hopefully the markets will be fairly quiet tomorrow given the poor weather).

      Market is in the main car park. We meet in the side one, which has access to and from College Rd.
