The last person to post before it fell in a heap was beebers. I vote we blame him.

BTW, where have you been? Haven't seen you on the TAN in ages.

Australian living in Hong Kong here. Got back into cycling last year in Hong Kong and have been out on the roads in Brisbane on trips back there.

Hong Kong drivers aren't great... but they're more likely to off me out of carelessness/indifference... I get the feeling back in AU that there's some seriously aggro nasty types behind the wheel. Bit of an education when I first headed out.

Still, there's nothing like heading out into the hills / Samford Valley at dawn.

I'll check back in this thread in another 3 years to see if there's been any action

Here in the far south coast of WA the drivers are pretty good, generally. I think the agro happens mostly in the big cities. There is absolutely no way I would ride on busy roads in Sydney.

I do ride with a very bright set of lights, front and back, at all times - flashing during the daytime. The phone thing has introduced a new set of problems.

Dropping in from Western Australia [Fremantle] now and then. Mostly interested in touring and bikepacking Western Australia's more remote areas. Most recent ride of note was from Esperance to Albany ...

Might jump in here.

Bought this frame a few weeks back, 'Le Kypo' 531c built by Rob Kypriotis in Traralgon, Victoria circa 1992.



I've got most of a Shimano 600 Tricolour groupset lying around, so I'll probably throw that on it and see how it rides. Knowing me it will probably end up with Campy 8 speed in future. However, I'm looking at doing the Noosa Strade Bianche later this year, which means getting my Pinarello ready, so the Kypo is in the queue.

I compiled a Kypo history here, if anyone's interested: http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/vi...?f=23&t=100570

Rock.
