Cycling in Melbourne Australia
I spent much of my research in biomechanics understanding gait patterns in children and adults, gait efficiency and injury prevention.

Have seen alot of these vintage track fixies going around Melbourne these days, growing by the number each day. Alot of pink wheel rims, and orange tyres, and even mixed colours. Is it all getting a bit too much? When will they start riding the classic colours again?
Also, most of these people are riding them on freewheel model anyway, so im guessing they just like the look of the frame. Would most these people still ride a fixie if they included gears? hehe

THE roads will see an increase in bright lycra today as many commuters try out the two-wheel option for Ride2Work Day.
But for the majority, it will be a once-a-year effort when they don a helmet and pedal off to their workplace

After two very wet winters and summers here in Melbourne, I started to think about what would be the best bike for commuting from home to work each day. I cover about 5,000km a year commuting, which was fine on my old Avanti road bike until the rains came!
Last year my wife and I took our road…Continue
