  • Happy Anniversary to you Joseph! Your madness is truly inspiring. Australia is amazing, and reading about your adventures has been awesome. Superb thread.

  • So good

  • I love your work.

  • @Thrasher Don't think Race to the Rock is going to materialise for me this year, unfortunately. I am daydreaming about something big next year though...!

    @Drano - I am REALLY bad at getting round to making videos, I'm sorry! I'm going to have to get on with making the loop series before I forget everything! All things Australia are currently in this playlist:­R_g&list=PLbhq_PpBKBmEmldDiuzI7OVq8QJKPp­JgQ

  • Thoroughly enjoying the updates on this thread. Looking forward to what you've got planned next Joe!

  • Hey guys, just edited together the first half of the footage from the anniversary road name ride. Let me know what you think. I need to get round to telling the actual Australian loop story but editing this helped with trying to figure out the editing style I need to use.

    Let me know what you think!

  • Part 2/2 of the celebration ride:

  • Yeah, A5 sucks. Enjoyed the vids!

  • Mega ride @veganjoseph. What ratio did you use and what was the total elevation if you don’t mind me asking?

  • 3,136m / 10,289ft of total gain according to the uploaded file. Take that with a pinch of salt though because recorded on an iPhone!

    Was using 48/19 with a 28mm rear. Quite spinny but hadn't done any long rides in a while (this was my longest since finishing Australia) so didn't want to risk it with too big of a gear. Now I've been riding a bit more, it's definitely too spinny of a gear. Gets a bit hectic on descents and the damage from the overspinning probably doesn't outweigh the 'easier' climbing.

  • Oh, unless you're talking about the actual Australia loop?

  • It was the anniversary ride I was asking about - was curious after watching he videos what kind of ratio you choose for a ride that long!

  • Any new youtube content planned? I see you've been kind of absent from the internet since December, hope everything's okay.
