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