MAX'S CUSTOM BOMBTRACK HOOK 3 CX RACE BIKE

Max is a restless kinda guy. When we started this season he knew he wanted something different from his bike, something that would set him apart from anyone else in the Elite Men's race, so he decided to take some free time, sandpaper, masking tape and paint to his Hook 3 frame. Taking cues from the race kit, he came up with this Aqua, Orange, Navy and Black scheme that looks great clean and even better dirty!

TOKYOBIKE - UNDERSTATED, UNDERRATED, CLASSICS

There is one bike (well, two bikes really) that we find ourselves more often than not recommending to both first-time bike buyers and N+1 nerds alike, and that is the humble, classic, inimitable Tokyobike. Some might be put off by the quill stem, the 26" wheels, the 7- and 8-speed drivetrains, but those three things are some of our favourite features on these two bikes that have proven themselves time and again to be the perfect bike to get around Adelaide on.

"THIS SEASON JUST KEEPS GETTING BUSIER AND BUSIER!" // BTR RACE UPDATE

It feels like we're only just back from Brisbane, and already we're gearing up for Nationals here in Adelaide! After 26hours in the van, the team bikes and Jake turned up to meet the rest of the team at Baden Powell Park in Samford, just outside Brisbane's North West suburbs, for Rounds 2 and 3 of the National CX Series.

WILL'S GREEN 'MIXTE' COMMUTER

Will needed a new bike. Well, he thought it was about time, after we'd made his old bike's acquaintance several times over what felt like an increasing number of small troubles. Halfway through the build process we kicked it up a notch because lo and behold - his bike got nicked! Will's now doubly stoked to ride away on his cushy, smooth new commuter with all the bells and whistles on a pretty tight budget, we think. Enjoy, Will!

SHARON'S BOMBTRACK ARISE CUSTOM TOURER

After some time spent thinking about exactly what Sharon wanted in her next bike, it was clear that it needed some key features, and they were fairly common for a tourer - steel frame and fork, big gear range, and the ability to run front or rear racks with fenders down the track. We took a 2017 Bombtrack Arise SSCX bike and added a triple crank, a Deore 10spd rear mech, a set of Gevenalle shifters up front and a couple of creature comforts (I'm looking at you, Brooks and Clement) and out popped this classy, comfy, go-anywhere, do-anything tourer that'll last her for years to come.

SAM'S BOMBTRACK 'BEYOND PLUS' CUSTOM MTB

Sam raced last year's Gravity Enduro series on a Kona Explosif hardtail, and while it cemented a love for steel hardtails that had been a long time in the wings, there were a few things about the bike that he wanted to change. Namely, more tyre clearance and bigger front travel - both of which came to light in the new-for-2017 Bombtrack Beyond Plus.

SILVER'S RAWLAND 'SOGN' TOURER

Silver came to us with two bikes and a problem - neither of them really worked for her. A Rivendell that had the build she wanted but was too big, and this Rawland Sogn that was the perfect size but with older parts that didn't suit her riding style. We managed to get the majority of the very nice stuff from the Riv onto the Rawland, and so this Sogn build was born!

ZANE'S SOMA WOLVERINE

While Zane has been gallivanting at Mt Buller Victoria for the ski season we have been swooning over this custom Soma Wolverine build eagerly awaiting his return. As far as do-it-all bikes are concerned, we're pretty sure he's got most of the bases covered.

MAKER 2017 - SHINY THINGS AND PERSEVERANCE

A celebration of everything that makes Australian Cycling great, an opportunity to get face-to-face with those behind your favourite brands, a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. MAKER brought Ebenezer Place to life on January 15 this year, and we had an absolute blast making it happen.

LIGHTWEIGHT URGESTALT - THE BIKE THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN

Occasionally-but-all-too-often, our friends get hit by cars while riding their bikes. Just in the last month Sam had his Rogers totaled by a fellow cyclist who happened to be driving a car that day, Graeme from The Sticky Bidon took a serious dive into the pool of cold steel (we're wishing him a speedy recovery!), and Seal (of #treadlycx fame) had her now unreplaceable fancy carbon race bike destroyed in a fistfight with a 2-tonne demon that also left her with a fractured hand and unable to work for weeks on end.

RITTE ACE: THE CHANGING FACE OF TREADLY?

It's only natural that being so immersed in cycling for so long has led to our own personal riding spreading from ripping around the CBD on track bikes in the early days to everything from racing the local gravity enduro and cyclocross seasons to doing double centuries in our days off to find more of our excellent South Australian roads to ride. We love to go fast - we know that some of you do too - so it made sense for us to start a relationship with a brand that allows us to do what we do best in a not-quite-completely-new-to-us category that is road cycling - build custom bikes to suit our customers from the ground up.

SWIFT CAMPOUT: TREADLY ADVENTURE CLUB

It's that time of year again, where our feeds are full of late sunsets, warm-looking nights and hot days. We're remembering our summer fondly, wishing for days that come January we'll be complaining about - but for now we just wish it wasn't so damn cold.
