I finally had my new wheelset built. Absolutely stoked with them, and can't wait to hit the trails!!

It looks like you need bigger brake rotors...

They're only 200mm, I could have gone 203!! Haha nah I had 180mm front and 160mm rear but cooked them at Mt Joyce. I never thought I'd get brake fade on a hydraulic brake push bike but I was wrong. Went the 200mm front and rear and I've never had a problem since!!

That's awesome! What keeps the camera so stable?

I'm going to attempt to get to the LBS this week to get my MTB sorted.

I just used the 3M tape that came with the GoPro accessories and stuck the mount base to my helmet. Then I can click the attachments into the base to hold the camera. Don't mind the mud on the helmet, there were a few puddles around yesterday and I was following my mate too close in places!! Haha

Hopefully this URL works...

This is the side on view of the rock garden in my last post. You can see right at the start of the video where the boys drop, that's the first rock section, and where the guy is videoing is the second rock section.

Heading out to Mt Joyce Saturday night and camping the night. There will be shuttles running Sunday from 8am if anyone isn't keen to ride up the steep fire trails. If anyone is keen shoot me a message or reply here and I'll give you guys more details
