HEY EVERYONE WE GOT A LINE JUMPER!!!!!
Hahahaha, jokes! Nice one mate! Cant wait to see it in the flesh on the inaugural GTG for the Baum Riders Club on WW...
I thought it was a bit brash to jump on it only days after getting it and ride the M-W!!!
Good luck Saturday!
- check the OP
- everyone already knows (via Twitter), hence the the half sort of discussions. Long story short, bike got knocked over and tt was cracked. Insurance replaced it, but I still had to go without race bike for 2 months. Esp. annoying given I now have a PT that I could have been using.
- enough that my insurance covered most of it

Hey, how many Baums are created compared to how many babies are born each year? I rest my case.
Beautiful, Tinea, very classy!

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
Raced it in the Melbourne to Warrnambool yesterday, which given the distance as well as the conditions would have found out if there were any flaws with the bike - there were none. The rider on the other hand..... But seriously, was certainly the type of bike I would want to be attempting a 262km race. I'll give more of a detailed ride report after a few more weeks of riding it and when I'm a little less knackered from racing.
What I can say is that the difference between steel and carbon was immediate. Honestly felt like I was riding with 80 PSI, I was staggered at how much more soft the ride was. Not that this means the bike flexed in any way, as there was not a hint at all of that yesterday - and if any flex was going to show up, chasing back after being dropped in 50km/h cross winds would have shown it.
