Rode it to work again. Don't think my bicycle will see much action in the next couple of weeks :grin2:

I have a 10k commute in city traffic, couple of bottlenecks where traffic gets a bit slow (can't lane filter yet on my licence, have to wait until October), two school zones where the speed is 40km/h, a couple of back streets where the speed limit is 40-50km/h and about 6k of main roads where the speed is 60km/h, not that much shifting, I keep the revs under 6k and typically just get up to 4th (60km/h), sometimes 5th at around 60km/h when traffic is clear or when going downhill. Shifting is really easy on this bike and it handles really nicely as well with plenty of power when you need it.


Only downside is that I think I'm developing permanent smile lines

I'm located in Brisbane Australia, the weather is perfect at the moment, winter is the best time to ride with temperature ranging between 15-25C during the day, last week had pretty clear skies, some small showers forecast for next week.

Australia must have some nice roads to ride around, doubt your bicycle will be seeing much action for a long while. :D
Your winter is my spring or fall, somewhat envious of your year round riding temperatures.

Although the summers are really hot and humid up here. I'm going to try to get as much riding in as possible while the weather is nice.

That's a pretty amazing winter you got going on there! I wish I could say the same about ours over here in Canada lol.

Would love to see some photos of your rides out and about though on your journeys!

HAHA, the grass is always greener, would love to have a Canadian winter here in Australia, although everything would grind to a standstill if we got 1cm of snow. Will try to take more pictures (will probably have to wait till the weekends though). That picture game suggested in the forum sounds good, I'll try to get out this weekend to take a picture of my bike near train tracks.

The picture game sounds fun, but with the delays and everything, some may not be getting their bikes for a long while. :crying:
I've heard that Spring Bluff and Murphy’s Creek is a great place to ride around Brisbane, plans to go there?

Oh isn't it always haha! I feel like if we switched positions for a few months, we'd probably want to revert back to our initial areas though. Grass is always greener UNTIL you spend enough time on the other side :wink2:

Can't wait to see some photos though, the picture game is definitely a great idea, unfortunately, I'll be out of the game for a while until I get my G310
