    Actually i glad I didn’t watch that video first β€” who goes to the trouble of trying it on first β€” and they made it a short sleeved leg. i just cut off 2cm at a time

    Cutting wetsuit question

    Wish I had watched the You Tube video before - I just randomly cut bits off the end until I can get out of it easily

    ITU Worlds - the new thread

    It would probably be in the Swan River -- they had 2 OD qualifying races there a few years ago -- Just got harmless big jelly fish there -- and when you get out of the River they have a water truck there to wash you down as you run past

    ITU Worlds - the new thread

    Re - Worlds 70.3 2020 I was talking to some Kiwi's at the GC and they said Sept - October would still be way too cold at Taupo - they thought if it is in December it would be ok. I think they mostly have the 70.3 WC in Sept ? so maybe it's Perth :πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    Sunny coast 70.3 Anyone there now?

    I remember that -- poured so heavy for the Sprint and the next day OD was sunny. I remember how freezing cold the water was (wasn't about 13.8 degrees) and it took me longer to get back to hotel after the OD then it was doing the race

    Trannies Strava Page

    I was looking at some of the Strava segments from people ( I know how their race times ) β€” β€œ easy 4 hour ride β€œ - 130km β€” β€œ easy Ironman pace run β€œ - 4.30 min/km Pace ( 15km ) β€”- then I discovered there is a digital EPO that improves your ride and run by 5% when uploaded to Strava !!!!!

    Bike Bag Recommendations

    Looking for bike bag recommendations. Have done a search on here already and seems the EVOC and Scicon seems to be most popular. Would like one where you don't have to remove handlebars if possible. After many years of using a frame/ travel bike box made of PVC Conduit/ Corflute that my hubby made -- used for both international and domestic - it finally has had it's last flight -- where I believe a baggage handler has walked on the box (this has happened before ) and trashed the frame the bike goes on. Thinking soft bag -- thinking baggage handlers might be more careful !! and at least not walk all over it
