  1. Uber-Autonomous Fatality

    the cop report seemed to blame the pedestrian on the report i read
  2. USA shootings and gun laws

    while i am anti ownership of guns, IJ brings insight to this debate. If he is correct and existing laws; if enforced, further restricted firearms, and some new/adjustments to laws (safe storage to stop the kid shooting his sister, possibly longer stand down from purchase to receiving) may make the place safer for people. There is no need to attack him for facts.
  3. Workplace smackdowns

    Based on the weather, i'd go whiskey on the bike, mulled wine on the run and money in your pocket for the pub. You will get more creed from the above than from beating your co-worker. It would be what legends are made of how you drunk your way around and went to pub.
  4. Stages Power Meter

    to the torque wrench, not for this job i do for anything carbon, or could crush For a crank arm why upgrade? other than looks/weight. Me if i had 105 would stay with 105 and spend the difference on learning how to use the Powermeter or a better head unit. Like above the Garmin 910xt doesn't work with Stages if on wrist
  5. Stages Power Meter

    I have the gen 2 stages and no issues I run ultegra on two bikes (different versions so colours don't match) and swap cranks at least 2x a month, easy task, just have to remember the sequence. Takes 5 min going slowly, 3 tools (something to remove dust cap, allen key to loosen crak, screw driver to lift looking mechanism, slide of crank arm)
  6. Is there an "easier" IM to qualify for Kona?

    easiest way to get to kona - lottery, ebay auction you just need the money and buy your entry $30 -50k will get you a charity slot http://www.ironman.com/triathlon-news/articles/2013/04/ironman-foundation-ebay-auction.aspx

  14. Track Cycling - Chasing the Funding?

    interesting strategy, NZ and UK sent teams to the worlds
  15. Mooloolaba Start Waves

    I was meaning for the Annual membership to get preference. then there are those like me who are annual members but can't qualify as not a citizen. Which start would i be in. Imagine that race based start waves!!, that would certainly get some media interest.
