    dropper seatpost on a budget

    There is a 200 buck and ~400 buck Giant one. My young bloke has intermittent issues with the cheaper one. I have nil with the more expensive one.

    What does a "good rest" mean here exactly?

    What racing flats are the kool kids in?

    X 2 The best and most versatile across all of those distances I reckon.

    Still have my 1st pair of tri bars in the shed (mid 80’s), prior to that we use to make our own, prior to that it was cow horn or std road bars. Also found an old pair of Nike Sock Trainers from the late 80’s

    I thought I had a pic of it somewhere. Here it is with one of Brisbane’s best triathletes from the early days, the other guy is Troy Fidler 😎😂

    Andrew my last 2 coaches both throw your championship set in almost weekly. Gilesy loves the 200 set followed by the 100 set. Though I've always done 5 of. 50 h 150 e 100h 100 e 150h 50 e 200 e 200 fkn h Same with the hundred but using 25m increments.

    I got some new balance Hanzos. Have only worn them for one short run before Boston but planning to start doing some work in them now things are back on track. Another to try is the adidas adios. I'e struggled to find them in Australia in the size I need. I put a pair on while in the US and I just love the feel of them. If Willie can talk adidas around I'll be onto him for those for my next purchase.

    Giro - Grand Tour Tipping Contest

    There was a clip of him thanking his mechanic after the stage in the team truck. Maybe his electric motor was fully charged this time??

    I was always amazed at how they could get the distance so wrong in some of the HB races I did. You could measure the swim course with a measuring wheel at low tide & drop the buoy anchors in then.

    Hervey Bay Ultra355

    True. But you’d have to time it so you swam the first 7km on the last of the incoming tide, then turn and swim the next 7km on the outgoing tide.

    fuel prices

    I’ve been west/east and north Brisbane over the weekend. Saw a couple of independent servos from 1.28 to 1.39, but most majors at 1.61. Saw one shell heading out to Sandgate at 1.36 this arvo. It’s mad there is such variability.

    I alluded to that in another thread. FM

    Will it hang on till IM Maryland? There's likely to be a near new bike up for sale on here after that.

    Just be thankful you don’t have to forward buy commodity for MTX and data centres.

    That's my thoughts around buying secondhand. I just think, how many in the same situation as the OP would sell and not disclose. Too many. (Not that I'm saying Flanman would)

    Frame Replacement

    Riding for 10 years with a big body would knock anything around. It has been good to me, although it did brake my collarbone and six ribs. Lol. I think it does need to retire though. FM
  24. My Asics Hyperspeeds are on their last legs so I need some new runners. Unfortunately Asics don't make the Hyperspeed or Hypertri anymore. Any recommendations? Prefer something < 200gms which I can use for sprints up to Ironman. Neutral.

    Swim plateau: how to break through

    Short. I only ever get to swim in a 25m or 850m pool these days.

    Samford shot course or grimsey long course?

    Swim plateau: how to break through

    As an example. 2 years ago I was swimming 1km in about 14:40 on a really good day. When we did "Speed Day" at squad, I was doing the 100's on 1:13 - 1:14. There weren't many of them, and there was good rest, but it was a consistent result, week in week out.
