    Wrong size bike...???

    I know the bloke and I am confident it's not hot. He probably bought it from fb sight unseen and went off his p5 size. He also has had a lot of trouble with his hips so that may also be a factor, then again he does buy and sell a lot of bikes....
  2. R Just reading it on twits, there seems to be a bit anti Wurf sentiment going on tho
  3. Anyone know why Jan is in such a grumpy mood? Should be on top of the world, but apparently dissing Wurf at finish line and having a shoving match with AB later!
  4. Thanks for the replies, just been thinking a bit about it as most of the guys I see running closer to race pace are a bit faster than me, but the odd one also doesn't perform on race day!
  5. Ok what pace does everyone run their long run at? What would your half ironman /ironman pace be? I've always ran fairly easy on long runs , a long way off race pace but I see most people I know running pretty close to their race pace, am I doing it all wrong?

    Fizik Saddle

    I have one and it kind of works for me. It's way better than the tritone as the nose is not a sharp edge! I don't know if I could sit on it for 180k in aero but for 90 it's fine. I used to use the fizik arione Tri which for me is more comfortable but I can get a lot more hip rotation with the mistica.
  7. Nothing beats a bit of tough love, I've been called a 'disgrace to the sport of triathlon ' at a half once by a random ! I couldn't help laughing but no it didn't get me running any faster😂 .Normally that kind kind of abuse is reserved for mates

    Oh and one more public service announcement , as the season is running a month or two late there is a magpie out at Ludlow Hithergreen rd that has a taste for blood apparently. Should be fine in sperm helmets😳

    Just confirming that Busso maccas is 24 hrs and I think Vasse is too! Water temp is around about 19-20 atm . No flies yet....

    I reckon Lingalonga at Balingup is the most fun ,but probably not everyone's cup of tea. But your right the trails at Margs will be better than Meelup , but it's close enough to do both.

    What sort of mtbing are you into? Probably the best spot is the Pines in margs as it will have a bit less dust than meelup. There is nearly as many breweries as wineries down here these days which is better! Can recommend ' The Brew House' which is conveniently located near margs mtb trails. You can also hire bikes from ' The Hairy Marron' in margs or 'The Bike Shed ' in dunsey.
  14. I think it starts the other side and goes under jetty to this side. It will have to go a bit further out to avoid the smaller jetty as its a bit hard to swim under. Nothing to worry about though , all this seaweed will be long got by then! We get weed like this all along the bay over winter
  15. Ktj is 4 foot tall haha. A new giant anthem in 650b or similar would be ideal for what I think you want to do, dualies are a lot more fun on the tracks around here, and after all it is for fun right?
