BEN HILL – ROCKY MOUNTAIN FLATLINE

Eliza-0647

Ben Hill has just taken out the U19′s Australian National season overall and to celebrate we thought we would show off his one of a kind steed. This thing is custom to the max, after a full strip down it was anodized, custom stickered and tricked out with some of the best components on the market. Check it out.

So obviously this isn’t the stock colour scheme you find on your average Flatline, so tell us a little about it? Who was behind the custom work?
Yeh the team has just changed to a matte black Anodised color with the team stickers and green Rocky Mountain logos on it. All the bikes will be going this way we were just waiting to see how it came out. But it was crundy who come up with it all.

I love it. I’ve just started to get everything set up perfect now that we’ve got the new 40 forks on. I’ve never really someone who played with bike set up too much before now but having Ben “Crundy” Crundwell around has helped a lot. This thing rocks in all conditions, I love it. …View More

Mt Buller has announced an exciting addition to the 2014 summer downhill mountain biking offering, with a shuttle service for the downhill mountain bike trails set to begin in February following the end of the chairlift season. The shuttle, operated by Blue Dirt Mountain Biking, will commence operation on February 15 and run each weekend until the end of April, providing downhill mountain bikers’ transport up the mountain beyond the downhill lifted season between Boxing Day and the end of January.

The introduction of the Downhill Mountain Bike Shuttle is great news for downhillers, who in recent years have only been able to use the trails when the Northside Express Chairlift has been in operation during the limited chairlift season. Buses with bike trailers will operate each Saturday and Sunday from February 15 until the end of April, transporting riders and their bikes from the bottom of the trails to the starting points at the top. …View More
