    Power Meter Recommendations

    i have a stages 2, had about 18 months, seems reliable but that just means that i see a number on my head unit, and that number is similar to last time. Change the battery about every 6 months I can swap between two bikes, which have the same crank length although different versions of ultegra. This allows me power on road and tt bikes The left right would be interesting as I should be weaker on my left after breaking that him; this could account for the low numbers i see. Happy with the simplicity if it. but not a big user of the info.

    Benefits of knowing your swim time

    I can't see mine as don't have prescription in my googles. I generally look at the clock above the swim finish to see time then work it out from there. Doesn't impact race one bike and run don't have time only things i can impact or provide useful information to control output eg power, HR, grade, cadence, pace, temp

    L’Etape 2018

    Sounds like MTB tracks will be open Friday, so looking good for the weekend. A friend yesterday was telling me how steep the Beloka climb is, so may end up with a bit of a walk up. Although packing a can of HTFU for the Perisher climb. I'm in start group 3, in NSTC top Looking forward to the weekend away

    How long have you been doing tri's for?

    First tri was Rotorua half in dec 2006. I learnt to swim that year to do the half at age 39. This was so i could do IMNZ in 2007 I had done the cycle leg of a corporate tri in about 2004. Spent 1995 to 2006 doing multi-sport (run, bike, kayak) racing but the wife decided that moving the kayak to transition with two toddlers was to much so said I needed as new sport.

    Running shorts with pockets for gels?

    The lulu lemon ones are good i often run in a cycle top to carry gels etc ans prefer this to the weight bagging on my legs

    Busso 2018

    I did port this year on tubular's purchased in 2010 i think. I did actually re-glue them, but they were in very good condition I think it comes down to piece of mind, low cost option to help ensure a finish.

    How do Pro's afford it

    Google Cody Beal. He is a pro who lists all his costs and income. I think the top few have a different financial base to the many

    Convict 100

    Done the 100km twice. Not technically difficult but requires solid fitness. Lots of climbing and walking up Time wise is about same as Ironman ride. Allot more fun
