So Rise Against are my new favourite band at the moment. Dang they are coming out here too, playing the friday night before the Kona 24...always bad timing..although could be highly inspirational..and bruising at the same time...check em out if your into that sort of thing, but "Revolutions per Minute" is a killer listen and on high rotation right now..new Mars Volta soon too...radness...who would have thought such crazy assed music could come from two guys living in Amsterdam???

Rolled the 57' around today..its like having an in built coach saying pin it on every decent...

Dude, where is that top pic taken?? Mmmmmm.. rocks.....

On the music front, with ya all the way on Mars Volta, good stuff. This week I've rediscovered Metallica, St Anger in particular. Can't believe it took me 3 years to buy it. Raw aggression at its best.

Top pic a la Doongalla...although i cant compare to anything else in the same class, the 575 is another level..im super impressed with it for sure cause as a XC clown i like stuff that pedals well and this does that with almost 6inches of rear travel..I know team mate Pezza trains heaps on his cause its such a fun yet efficient bike...I dont think you will be dissappointed
