Quick photo post from Orbost!

Hey folks! The ride is going FANTASTICALLY!!! We just had our first hilly morning and the bikes performed brilliantly.

I’m going to post a handful of pics and we are only hitting a net cafe … well, this is the first one and I only have 5 more mins before we set off again.

    How do you find the hub motor compared to the oatley?

    I did this cycle by myself a few years ago. It was good. I remember I liked Orbost. I think I spent New Year’s Eve there – to find out the next day that I’d broken a gear cable… spent two days cycling on “extra hard” till I got to Lakes Entrance (could of kissed the bike shop owner there). I also broke my rear derailer later down the line! All good in the end though. Good luck!

    Chris: i am liking it quite alot. The planetary gears give it good torque on the hills and for moving off, even if in a higher gear by accident. I’ll have to have another go of the gl- 2 to compare!

    Hey Matthew, brilliant! Did you do it on an ebike or a plain bike? I have to say i’m really impressed with the hill climbing capacity. We are coming out of over hundred kilometer days with no sweat whatsoever! 🙂 eden tomorrow!
