Police had a big spot check blitz on with at least 20 police pulling over nearly every car into the service road for checking. I rode straight through the middle of them all with at least half a dozen of them watching me go by. Not one comment as I rode past, peddaling hard of cause Must admit, I was a little nerves though.
The man was observed riding the bike at speeds estimated to be about 50 km/h to 60 km/h. It will be alleged that the bike did not contain a chain, thereby making the biike a motor cycle. The man has been charged with disqualifed rider, ride unregistered vehicle, ride uninsured vehilce
What a hooligan though, fancy doing 50-60km/hr on a mountain bike...

Did you stick that stealth logo to the side of your bike or is it a factory CF cut out ? Isn't it backwards ?? (inverted)
Also half your side cover bolts missing ?

Trust you to notice that . Cover comes off quite often so I can check individual cell balance and cant be bothered putting all the screws back in.
Speaking of checking balance, I am now using one of these. http://media.hyperion.hk/dn/sentry/They are brilliant with a heap of features. Such a big improvement over the crap HobbyKing units I have been using. I love the way it shows the remaining capacity as a percentage. Also at a quick glance you know how far the balance is out and which cells are the highest and lowest.
At around $30 it is a must have tool.

Being quite tall, I need to have the seat post quite high for efficient pedaling but the long travel suspension of the Bomber makes it so I can only just touch the ground when stopped. Being able to quickly lower seat is also really handy when off road so you can comfortably drag a foot when needed.

Will be great to meet you both finally.
I managed a 200ft wheelie on the Bomber today, pulled it up at 20mph and topped out at 42mph. Wheelies offeoad are much more difficult to keep up though.
When are you thinking of guys?
