My bike is my car. I love it. I never, ever thought I’d be saying that about a road bike but this bike, and what I’m getting out of it, is the dream. When I started riding so very long ago, I was a BMXer through and through, and it helped developed friendships that will last a lifetime, gave me opportunities to see stuff I never thought possible and ultimately changed my life forever. Now, I’m older and having spent so many years pushing my body, it’s hard for me to ride BMX like I used to and so the road bike was an almost natural progression.
So, here she is, my 2011 Fuji SST 3.0.
This is my car, AND I LOVE IT.

Modifications I painted her black. She had way to many logos on her so we dulled her down and helped her fly under the radar. I didn’t realise however that the market was about to explode with a tonne of matt black and thus bringing more attention to the cutie. I’m currently trying to find the exact replacement colour. Have you got any suggestions?
Riding home last night I discovered a ‘slight issue’ with regards to the width of the bike lanes on Princes Hwy. I greatly appreciate the efforts the local councils are going to to ensure the safety of all road users but it may be an idea that you make your bike lanes wide enough for your stencil. Thanks.
Thanks to Mr Anonymous for sending me a new lens for my Nikon. I have no idea who you are but as te note reads “another one for your collection. Happy Friday Foto” I would presume you would see it here. Thanks.
