Welcome


Welcome to the world of Global Riders!

This site is a showcase of all the content from the Global Riders Network.

That being the case, visitors to this site may well see a lot more information and discussion than they are really interested in. It is recommended that visitors browse on a more localised partner site that has a limited amount of content. These sites are listed on the the Global Riders Network homepage.

That said, it's always interesting to see what's happening elsewhere in the world, so feel free to browse around.

New Domain Name

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

So as many of you know we have been having trouble with our domain name and now the original one seems to have been stolen to be used for advertising.

We have now acquired the .au version - glenrocktrailalliance.com.au

So if people could search and save that one would be great. If you search the old one still comes up and you have to choose, but if you type it straight in it directs to here. - and please spread the word to friends.

Cheers,
Mick.

Bicycle Centre Phillip - ACT

A quick shout out to the Bicycle Centre Phillip: http://www.bikeshed.com.au/ They've done some work for me on my mountain bike recently and I'm very happy with the results.

Might want to check them out if you're looking for, what so far seems to be, a decent mechanic on the South side of Canberra.

For Sale: Nukeproof Mega AM 275 frame

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Price: 
1,100.00

The size is medium, it is in immaculate condition and i have only used it for less than 12 months. Bought brand new from CRC online.

It is a brilliant frame and only reason im selling is the sizing is slightly to big for me.

Frame is built stiff and tough and rides awsome. In fact ive bought another mega in small.

Comes with monarch rear shock and cane creek headset. All shock bushings and pivot bearings still like new. Frame skin has been applied to entire frame.

Price is slightly neg

In top shape over the weekend. Just Lava Flow to open (soon??) and we'll have the whole place back to its former (improved) glory Smiling

First sandy section is reasonably firm from the rain. Still plenty of sticks on the track out further, due to the vegetation clearing under the power lines. Otherwise fine.
