I just obtained copies of maps put out by the NPWS which apparently are the final word on MTB access. Most of the popular trails are there as MTB legal with a few notable exceptions :

1 The section of Sandy Trail West of the the Cooyong/ Neverfail is classed as a walking trail . This is disappointing as it means the 20klm loop around Duffy's Forest is no longer possible.
2 The Cullamine Trail is walking only
3 The only egress from the top of the Quarry Track is shown as direct to Mona Vale Road through the tip
4 Cowan track is walkers only

Hey guys,

I'm looking at a cross country, dual suspension for under $2500. Almost half my riding will be ON-ROAD.

I will be using it for moderate/difficult fire trails and UP/DOWN bush tracks (no huge drops, no extreme downhill). My main concerns are LIGHTWEIGHT (14kg max) and at least front SUSPENSION LOCK.

Currently considering (all around $2000):
1/ Scott Aspect FX 15 (front & back lock suspension, 13.9kg)
2/ Specialised FSR-XC Comp (highly reccomended by a friend).
3/ Giant Anthem 2 <--- The talk of the town (fantastic front fork, excellent value, propedal)

A technical single trail that complements the Oaks in the Blue Mountains. This trail is either an out and back, about 8km each way. Or an out leg towards a cliff escarpment with an extremely technical descent that is hike-a-bike only (eg. you have to carry your bike down and out the other side), about 20km in total.
