  1. You can't keep everyone happy. That I've learnt... FP I don't think the running is important. I've got a great coaching team, I'm working on a few things and hopefully I'll share some official results when I race sometime in the near future. the fact I cop it every time I post something about what I'm doing makes me just want to turn off. I'm doing a 20 mile run, 4km swim and 5mile run late in the evening with a .ate tomorrow. I'll put it on Strava for you. Thanks to folks for reaching out, I'm ok and coming over to the US to get away from it is great. I've got the next court date in early January and that should hopefully provide some more clarity on when the ex disappears. It's not so much a money issue but more a "getting access to my money issue". The problem is she now owns half of everything and then some of what I had. I've basically lost my financial freedom until such time as everything is sorted through the court. Until then I actually don't know what I do and don't have, but rest assured I always get stuff worked out as best I can.
  2. So I had 4 transactions out of 100 or so in the last 3 months that didn't go to plan. One being the Garmin that didn't get delivered because I didn't get told by the distributor when I ordered it that they were out of stock, the kickr mentioned here and another kickr that went AWOL on its way (courier said delivered customer said no). There is nothing wrong with my business nor have I fleeced anyone. I've not ****ed anyone over. If I have explain to me how? Yeah refunds are a bit slow and out of my control but they get there eventually. ****ing someone over would mean screwing them both out of the product and their money
  3. This will be short and sweet as to why I haven't been trying etc. So you might well know that my life is pretty much ****ed right now. I've let a lot slip and haven't really had a lot of control over much in the last 8-10 months since separating from my soon to be ex-wife. I have no control over my finances, I was actually homeless from November to March and am hanging on by a thread with a lot of things. If you're wondering why I'm not posting etc much of late it mostly because I'm pretty unhappy and coping shit left right and centre about everything (most of which is self inflicted because I've let things slip). On the race front I didn't race this weekend. My heart and head aren't in it, I'm still training and improving, my weight actually starts with an 89.x now. I'm actually in the US trying to keep a bit sane and taking some time out, I ditched on Queenstown because the ex was going to be there. I didn't need that shit show. I've had some amazing support from a friends of mine over here in the US and I don't plan on heading back to Australia any time soon. As for my business, it's done and dusted. I actually just asked for it to be wound down. Going to flog whatever stock is left over and that'll be that. You can't really run a business when the other owner wants nothing more then to see you go down the gurgler just the way I did/have. I made a stupid decision to fight it/her and I guess I was always going to lose that one, but alas that's life. Refunds etc get done if/when she feels like it but I cop the backlash because I'm the face of the business and that's ok. It my fault for not letting it go when this first happened 6 .otnhs ago (I've averaged about $10k sales/wk for the last 3 months, a few of which went sour). But it was my income so it was hard to do. If anyone wants to own trannies etc I'm not going to keep up with it. I've done more harm then good like most thing lately so it's time to let it go. It should be and can be a good resource with the right help. So if you're interested let me know. Anyway that's me out for now.
  4. Fluid Medium (17”) Hardtail MTB 29er I mostly used it for commuting (I didn’t commute much either) I have two sets of wheels to go with it, one for commuting with slick tyres and one for off-road. Can have a near new Rudy Helmet if you want it. Came randomly as an extra with some sunnies and not needed. I will put pedals and a saddle on it before it gets picked up. Group set 10spd Deore (double front), road cassette on the commuter wheels. Wheelseet - Fulcrum Red Pwer for off road and WTB commuter with Thickslick and sealant in the tyres upgraded fork to Rock Shox TK Silver $700 for the lot
  5. $800 (it was over $2k new) Less than 10hrs on the motor, I already have one treadmill and this one was in the shop before it closed. I don’t need a second! Pro Form Performance 1850. MAx speed 20km/hr and 15% incline (actual 15%) http://www.treadmill-running-machine-review.co.uk/proform-performance-1850-treadmill-review.html Pick up only in Sydney (Russell Lea)
  6. Go the cervelo in a 56 from pushys. I ride the propel in a medium as well if your buying new. That is very good bang for your buck and waaaayyyy more adjustable then the trinity.

    Shifting issues?

    Knowing it's exposed new inner and outer cables should do the trick.

    Tacx Neo 2

    Short answer is no it's not in general. Some stuff is handled in AUS and sent from AUS.
  9. Not really, I could barely break 2hrs a few months back. Last November I barely beat 5hrs for a marathon after going through halfway in about 2.02 from memory. To be honest I couldn't run 32km last November. Let's see what happens in Queenstown in a couple of weeks.
  10. I'm not that fat anymore.... In fact I'm almost under 90kgs.

    Hoka One One

    Depends on the colour way and model. But normally up half a size, yes.
  12. I don't know about 5k. I haven't really had a good crack at one lately. I have a TT in two weeks and will know.after that. My guess, about 19.20ish
  13. Mate I dare say you'd rub off on people around you and motivate them... You might still be crap at what you do but I doubt that's their reasoning i figure I'm not exactly a couch potato and am quite driven, but I still look up to people like you and have since I was about 12/13 when we met.

    Hoka One One

    Different brand all together, not overly popular in AUS though. I tend to disagree with putting inserts in anything unless you're really messed up. They make a heavy shoe even heavier.
