    Specialized Turbo Availability in Australia

    Hey Court, Looks like the site is growing. See my post below regarding my dilinger outlaw and now specialised turbo. It's a fantastic bike.

    Specialized Turbo Availability in Australia

    I bought a specialised turbo i had my eye on for a while. After a disastrous run with a $2000 AUD dilinger outlaw i decided to take the owner to court and get at least some of my money back and then put it towards a bike that i could get decent service out of in Australia and that was actually...

    Hey Justin Can u give me run down on the dash ?? It has 500w with a limited top speed of 28 mph. Any way of taking that limit off. That 28 mph is my preferred cruising speed. Also can u vary the throttle limiter ??? Yeah I know warranty and legal issues. I have a 1000w bike that will do some...

    Grace MX2 - the coolest

    Focus make really good bikes I have a belt drive and it is really great bike to ride even after getting of my electric monster !! It is superbly put together and completely outshines my ugly duckling (or vulture) but I cant bring myself to kit it out as it is so much fun. Internal rear hub and...

    Grace MX2 - the coolest

    I have been to Europe a couple of times pining away for my MX2 but wanting it for half as much as it is being offered. The bike shop in Zurich I visited was great with heaps of great bikes but no MX2 yet. I have in the mean time settled for a very ugly but powerful bike re-badged. It is a...

    Grace MX2 - the coolest

    It would be great fun to go do Eurobike but being in Perth in Western Australia the most isolated capital city on the planet it is a long way to go without a tax deduction!! Saw that interview prior to you posting - mostly to do with their top ender e-bike which looks cool but I can't ride on...

    Grace MX2 - the coolest

    Faraday 2 is good and kind of dutch old school with a modern twist. Not as "Blade Runner" as the Grace MX2 !! I think I will just sacrifice the old 700C and put my own motor on it and see how we go while i wait for the MX2...

    Grace MX2 - the coolest

    Hey Court, I think the weight of the urban is 22 Kg which is on the heavy side but I am 91 Kg so it does not make that big of a difference % wise. I am also curious about the widened shaft behind the seat post. I'd probably ride it without the kick stand altogether. I have a flat bar road bike...

    Grace MX2 - the coolest

    OK so unless you have been taking the wrong medication the coolest looking Urban bike on the planet is the Grace MX2. The outgoing model is pretty good but the new model is great with the new Bosch drive. (There is an offroad version as well). The styling is fantastic and the specs are great...
