Mullum Mullum

is the name of a creek and a tollway tunnel in eastern Melbourne.
here is the bike track that was built around the tunnel
in the distance beneath the gumleaf-bedecked, architectural folly feature
is the tunnel entrance
pretty big pic if you clic

the tunnel was built to save the creek

a magical place to ride on a cool summer's morning

Rando power station

new dyno hub wheel
and lights for Jo
fitted and wired up

one day soon however
those wires will disappear inside the frame
and narry a cable tie will be seen

Shogun girls' MTB

an opp-shop find
lots of nice details for a budget bike
like biopace chainrings
exage hubs and araya rims
and Shimano 200EX long cage rear derailleur
love the cable routing through the down tube brace most of all.

a nice, relatively light bike

Coffee pays for new dynamo wheel

by buying one of these...

 and thereby avoiding having to pay one of these...

I was able to purchase this.
try it.
avoid cafes altogether and see how much you save in a year.
