    Good work Emo. You little 90 kg fellas aren't true Clydes anyway. ZZZ or nothing!
  2. Trannies Strava Page

    The scary part is there are some segments where she didn’t get the QOM.

    Don't give up Jess. It takes time, sometimes.

  13. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Athlete "contribution" ~$1 k for Penticton events. Uniform you can usually wear Current year - 1 version. so, unless you got one last year, you're up for a suit at least.

    149 should get an OK bike split!
  15. So I paid for a lesson

    Late to the party, but I did a session today with Ben from http://www.forbesmtbcourses.com Just me, 1 on 1 for 2 hours after work, at Gap Creek Reserve Being a total n00b, we started with the basics: Track stand attempts - this surprised me, but made sense when he explained it just gives you time to assess things if you need it. He noticed my grip and we went and moved my brake levers in a bit from the end of my bars, trying to get me used to 1 finger braking. Flat pedals/attack stance. Front/rear wheel lifts, then some obstacles - 1 coppers log/2 coppers logs/six coppers logs in a stack kind of thing. Cornering - including moving from flat to outside leg down and back to flat - that was much longer to get hold of than I'd like to admit. Then hit a couple of trails in the second hour, some wayyy more technical stuff than I've been on so far. (But still only Green/Blue rated) The difference between me stopping dead on seeing some of the obstacles on the first trail and not blinking about something similar 20 minutes later was pretty stark. I found the whole session just so worthwhile. Ben was pretty easy going, no stress felt at all. He explained everything so I could understand it. I have to practice, then I will do a second session with him next month. I would recommend him to anyone in Brissie.

    You'll be doing 45 km/h on the straights though.

  18. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    Dell. Has better processor (Pentium Vs Celeron) SSD hard drive is also better than the HP , which basically has a built in USB stick.
  19. Microsoft Excel help

    ctrl-c -> ctrl-v into new sheet.
  20. My Instagram

    There is a disturbing lack of hashtags on a post chasing Insta followers. #blessed #fitspo #realtalk #dreambelieveachieve
  21. Cricket

    Me too* *But, it's only been against a piss weak England side.
  22. Microsoft Excel help

    Your Vlookup would try to RETURN a value from column 30 in your lookup table, but your lookup table only has one column.
  23. What training did you do today?

    What you need is the Superfast Tunnel Ball style turn at the end of the course.
  24. Like a saris bones or similar. Anyone use one? I'm in a swift, my bike fits if I lay the passenger seat down. But that might not be the best option if I get it really dirty. I've seen a couple of single bike options, but max weight loading of 16 kg has me concerned.
  25. What training did you do today?

    What's with the 500m laps cranky?
