So anyway...

this actually is my mountain bike. It's in pieces and I need to put it together as it's needed for a race this weekend in Canberra.

I've managed to get it mostly together, but am having issues with the rear derailleur. I've no idea why it's not falling into place. *sigh* I'll get there though. I'm writing this because I just needed a time-out from it.
Deep breath.
Right-o, back to it...

You're not doing that 24 hour race in Canberra are you? I've got a couple of friends doing that... pure madness. Oh well, have fun! :)

what you need is to strip to the waist, smear yourself in bike grease and put a tool belt on. Then take a pic for our viewing pleasure.

Then, of course, you can get on with that tedious bike business...

Tom: Yes, it is madness, which is why I'm not doing that one. I'm doing the Paddy Pallin Adventure Race. It's not as grueling.
"The total distances if you add up all the legs together are approximately 8-10km on foot, 15-20km by mountain bike and 3-5km of paddling."

DG: I don't own a tool belt... sorry.

Hmmm. I guess if you're racing there won't be much time for photos...

Good luck in the race! (and putting the bike together. Lol)
