  1. The Politics Thread

    That’s very unlikely to happen. They are deferring the no to the plebiscite so they can then justify their position as being that of the people. But if yes wins it will be a different story. Have you seen any liberal politician publicly declare they will vote with whatever the plebiscite outcome is? Bunch of spineles dipshits who are only in it for themselves, that’s what they are.

  3. WC Selection Races Distribution, Fair?

    I think you would be in for a rude shock if you think the number of races you do would make a difference. It will be hard racing to make the cut off for points at any of these events.
  4. The best, safest strategy is be self sufficient and don't rely on anyone else. You need 3 bottles.
  5. Hey Alex Genuine question: i know you always refer to cadence as a red herring and that your opinion is informed on data not anecdotal evidence, but would you be willing to concede that someone's style of riding in cadence terms *may* have an effect on the physiological adaptations they achieve, and that they could *potentially* benefit from it?

  7. 4iiii power meter

    Just get a stages DA for the Canyon and be done with it. Not sure why you feel the need to change the cranks on the trainer bike as well. It's mostly for improving your position and/or hip angle so on the trainer it doesn't really matter as long as you are getting a few rides in with the other bike outside. I challenge you to even notice the difference between the cranks. Perhaps on the first day you may notice it but that will be it.

    #HuntingCatholics what a ****ing joke that you can still find people to defend this grub.
  9. Plateaus

    You're a MKC Coaching follower so plenty of good stuff and ideas that he already published are available. Go back through his vlogs and see if you can find a common theme! ======== My opinion: Firstly, I'd keep doing what you're doing mostly, you're on the right track and consistency pays off. Spicy it up a bit if you really feel the need, but very cautiously. Something like 50% easy, 30-35% moderate and 10-15% hard (in this order i.e. start with easy -> mod -> hard) once a week for swim/bike/run. Repeat for another 4-6 weeks and see how it feels, then adjust accordingly. Above all, stay consistent and do not follow advice from people telling you to change things up dramatically. That's what people who have no trust in their training would do. I do the same thing with very little variation pretty much every single week of the year and am yet to see a real plateau, except for when I'm doing nothing like right now
  10. Powertap P1 Power Meter

  11. Power meter for shiv

    I'm a big fan of second hand stuff but would be very hesitant to go that way with a powermeter. I've used Quarq and am now on stages and the dual vs one sided stuff never made any difference to me.
  12. Power meter for shiv

    Powertap single pedal @ Pushys with $150 off that's $750 not a bad deal. http://mailchi.mp/pushys/free-shipping-powertap-offer-tacx-neo-scicon-bag-hero5-black-specials-nutrition-volta-winter-apparel-aftershokz-boardman-hybrid-poc?e=a387c4a2e6
  13. Wheels - again.

    After the deals I saw from Shimano at Port this year, I don't I will ever buy wheels elsewhere again.
  14. Booking.com, Booking F#$k No

    I find them pretty good too. Bookings with no upfront payment, good competitive prices, decent app etc.
