"Yes I'd always understood that an angle grinder would get through a lock but I'd had no idea how fast.  Ultimately I'm relying on having an old crappy bike. "

Bike thief shows how to get through locks

Interesting video from a few years back https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pywN558dJaU&frags=wnGood reminder that cheap cable locks are total rubbish.  More expensive D or U locks resist the bolt cutters but not the portable angle grinders. Nothing held him up for more than a minute. See More

"Yes it looks like a good spread front and back.  I guess it depends what is in that back bag.  If it's a lightweight sleeping back might not be too bad. I've toured with rear panniers and front panniers which helped even it out a…"

Dave M replied to Michael Murray's discussion Adelaide teenager cycling around the world for MND research
"Looks like a pretty good setup for long distance touring, it should have a reasonably even balance of weight on the front and rear wheels. I use a bike with rear panniers for normal utility riding around Adelaide. They get the job done, but you have…"

Adelaide teenager cycling around the world for MND research

There is a story on the ABC site but they omit all the important details like what the bike is like so I chased down the bloghttps://jimmyashbyaroundtheworldbybike.com/bike-gear/I wonder why he skipped pannier racks?  That puts the centre of mass kind of high although the bag…See More

Gemma K replied to Michael Murray's discussion Ow, ow, ow !
"Logistically, the women's teams would prefer increased media coverage over fancier digs. The accommodation in North Adelaide was actually quite good, mechanics had secure places to work outside the public eye, the food was great and it was easy…"

"hopefully the SA government goes the full hog in 2019 and kicks in for same hotel etc as the blokes get next year.   SAGOV is making some good coin and showed that in 2018 by topping up the winners takings, but it would be good to see the…"

An eclectic mix of cyclists. It takes time to know AC members, and sometimes even gender, when avatars of cycling gear, childhood photos and Cadell. Gradually learn there are mature members, like us. Do you think that your title ever helps when writing cycling advocacy letters and submissions?
