    795 Blade RS. Has renewed my interest in Looks. Curious to hear more about this thing.

    Randomly spotted a good deal on a Look 765 locally. Further investigation revealed a GREAT deal on a Time Fluidity. Curiosity (which has been building on these for, like, 6yrs or more) got the better of me:



    The paint design isn't wonderful, but it's subtle enough for me to cope.

    It's a lively ride which sits somewhere between my current Parlee Z1 SL and my old Parlee Altums. It's not as harsh as the Altums, but it's not quite got as much 'get-up-and-go' as my Z1; whilst also being not quite as smooth as the Z1 is. It turns in very much like both bikes, though - which is to say borderline gracefully.

    So far I like it enough to consider a respray (raw carbon with a single highlight logo on the DT), so I might end up keeping it anyway - especially as rim brake bikes seems to already be struggling to sell unless you want to take a total bath on them!

    OK, so as a local, can I just ask. - where the hell is that?

    Nice bike.

    Just past Brookie oval is a fishing shop called Sneaky Fisho’s - it’s on the side of their building. Blink and you’ll miss it.

    Come to think of it, I have no recollection of when or how I did spot it...

    How different is the fluidity to the nxr instinct or is the same? It looks ace anyway.

    My understanding is that the NXR Instinct is a cheaper and more race-oriented version of the Fluidity - a lot of the shaping on both is very similar and I know nothing of the carbon layups and types used that differentiate the two; but I do recall the Instinct was always a cheaper bike (it used to bug the hell out of me because ‘Endurance / Fondo’ geometry bikes are usually at the cheaper end of the scale, but the Fluidity has always been expensive).

    Jeez, you are not kidding. Rode past there this morning. Saw the shop at least...

    Someone should do a website of these locations😀

    Already for sale, in case anyone is interested... (long story, but it basically comes down to a bike coming back into my rotation and no storage space for this)

    We should just have a gallery just for your bikes alone. It would be like a lot of people were posting photos of their bikes, but it would just be you.

    If you took the word “bikes” out of that it sounds kinda creepy...��

    Had a fun ride on this across some really chopped up roads yesterday. A firm favourite.

    Coolest genration of Times, IMHO. I'll keep a lookout for a RXRS or RX Instinct or NXR or whatever, I even have a sweet (now outdated) BB30 Cannondale crankset I will put on it . . .

    They’re a good thing @dogrange going for less than they probably should. This one uses a threaded BB which I was pretty pleased with.

    Not sure why I continue to be impressed. Every time I ride this thing I wonder why I don't pull it out more often.

    Hi there, this is my first post, having crossed over from the Airstream Forum by way of recommendations from Too Tall!

    I am over on the West Coast (Canada) and in desperate need of planning an Airstream Cycling adventure.

    Here is my current ride: It is getting a bit dusty as work and life have gotten in the way of riding :(
