...know when to fold 'em...

For those who doubted, behold! The mighty Hasa got through its Tasmanian tour including the predominant up-and-downy bits. How do they fit so many hills on such a little island? If they squished that thing down flat I think it would probably have the surface area of WA.

Funny bike chronicles II

Using the folder as the principle ride as a tour-training measure. Now doing the Big Commute regularly (Yarraville to Abbotsford and back via the Capital City Trail) and finding the machine perfectly adequate. If I have one complaint, it's creaks. The handlebars taper down to quite narrow ends and consequently have a bit of flex in them. Seat also a bit noisy, probably due to the very long post.
