Incremental enhancements. Perpetual improvements. Revolutionary Innovation. When advancements are continuously made to every attribute of every component, the result is overall performance that is simply second to none. And to real cycling enthusiasts, there is nothing more gratifying then achieving the ultimate ride. And the best part is we just keep making it better.

This is what SRAM is all about. Sure, a casual rider will appreciate solid performance, reliability, dependability and all the standard qualities one would expect. But it's the riders who live and breathe bicycles who love us most because bicycles are what we love, too. In fact, they're our only love.


RockShox was born out of a belief that the mold was meant to be broken. We know one size does not fit all. We know even the longest rides are too short to worry about your equipment. Our patented designs push the limits to bring the utmost in performance, control and adjustability to every product in our line. From our Motion Control damping to the easiest to use thru-axle on the market, the Maxle, we believe race-proven technologies shouldn't just be for racers. Being on the leading edge of technology isn't just our history. It's our future.


When we set out to design the best disc brakes in the world, we knew that simple stopping power wasn’t going to be enough. The best brake would also have to work in perfect harmony with your hand, give you precise control, and be easier to install than a virus on your PC. Mission accomplished.


Since its inception, Truvativ has focused on improving your riding experience. To accomplish this, product developers innovate toward function, reliability, and ease of maintenance. The result is product lines that have become the standard on the trails and mountains: Noir. Stylo. Holzfeller. Hussefelt.


Hammer Nutrition is at the cutting edge of Sports Nutrition. Hammer has focused on making products using only ingredients which it believes are of benefit to the athlete. This means that its products contain no added simple sugars, colourings, preservatives and anything which is harmful to the athlete’s performance. See our Event Nutrition section for info on how to use Hammer products to your best advantage.


At James Estate we enjoy the simple life… smiles, laughs, friends, bike riding and fresh air… wine is a bonus!

So if you’re up for it, Wattle Avenue, School of Rock, Go-Anna, Sucked In, Airs Rock, Lenny’s Bypass and Desperado trails are all ready for you to conquer. To fully appreciate these trails, it is best to allow a couple of hours riding time. Grab a coffee and enjoy a wine tasting after your ride! So drop in and see us at either of our cellar doors, 951 Bylong Valley Way – Baerami NSW 2333 or 1210 Hermitage Rd Pokolbin NSW 2320.  Come and enjoy what we enjoy.

snaxontrax-logo-140 For our legion of hungry mountain bikers, Snax on Trax have become as important to the series as the fine singletrack. Peter & Simona not only keep riders fuelled, hydrated and caffeinated but delight the senses with delicious, healthy and interesting food influenced by Simona's Sicilian background. They have also recently featured in a video for Volkswagen Australia which highlights the capabilities of their 4WD go-anywhere cafe!

dave-bateman-300 In the rare moments that he's not off adventuring himself, Dave Bateman loves to capture others engaging in their own adventures and triumphs. Dave's photography has captured all four years of the Singletrack Mind Series and all the great moments in that time. You can see all his fine work in our gallery and the link below.

Riding Focus If there's a bike race near Sydney then Josh Nicholson's lens is likely to be capturing it! You might say he's obsessed as he shoots almost every day! To give that passion an outlet, he started a photography blog focused on all things cycling, which will feature his fine photography of the 2014 Singletrack Mind Series.
