I had no trouble at all with flat tyres or anything on the bike.The only thing I did was put oil on the chain now and then. There is not really much to go wrong with a fully rigid steel bike.(Niner MCR) I ran Maxxis Crossmarks, tubeless with Stan's sealant. Yes Dalai I am sure there are lots of Bindi's out there but the sealant works well. Watch out for loose fencing wire and do a course on how to open a gate. There are about a hundred gates rarely with the same opening mechanism. Biking Bethany's Blog has a good read about a speed attempt on the Mawson Trail.

Have to get around to putting together a trip report, but may be a little while as I raced today and will be flying up to Queensland next weekend for the first round of the National CX series...

Was a great time away and through some amazing scenery. Weather could have been a little nicer during the first week but got to ride the whole trail and can happily report not the one flat!

I'm sure you could add a second chapter to the article with some climbing specific tips. I'm always impressed at how exciting you can make climbing seem (with me of all people!). If you weren't busy saving screaming houses from burning people I'm sure you could make it as a journalist in a cheesy climbing rag.

Lots of love,
