  1. This one in particular. Its on Petes FB page rather than Tri Buzz with Muzz
  2. Yes! They're great and just getting better and better. The last one was an absolute cracker!!!
  3. He's a little bit quicker than me.
  4. There is a huge amount of information from members here and there is a range of everything from that data including riding techniques. To help you make your decisions, its probably worth also having a look and a play with Best Bike Splits. https://www.bestbikesplit.com/
  5. IM would have done exactly the same if the shoe was on the other foot.
  6. I think sleeves also. I just about always need someone to zip me up. I also "float" the wetsuit into position. Once I'm in the water I let some water into the neck which then allows the wetsuit to float a little bit and move to where it needs to move. For me they are not comfortable until then. I also use a wetsuit lubricant around the neck, arms, shoulders and legs to stop next rubs and to help get it on and off. SBR in my case in a little blue spray can. For wetsuits, it may be worth a google. Years ago I found an article describing the properties of all of the wetsuits on the market etc such as thicknesses, where they assist you most etc. I wanted one that would help bring my legs up and ended up with the 2XU V:2. I bought it in 2011 and it is still going.
  7. Why do you need that? You should be able to do Ironman without drinking. I normally run loops past the car, or I run out and back, where I drive out to the start/finish location which is the furtherst point and drop drink/food at roughly 1hr intervals on my drive out.
  8. At this stage it pretty much has to be with the governments 500 person cap. The feedback I had from work today is that they expect the Corona Virus peak will be in May.

    Dairy free diet?

    I'm the same, but was a big milk drinker before. Can tolerate cheeses and a little milk but not a lot of milk. I actually prefer SoGood milk anyway. That said, I didn't notice much change to be honest.
  11. A lot for me are ones I have done or ones that friends have done, word of mouth and from the governing bodies. Sydney is probably the hub of all racing in NSW.

    Are gloves gloves?

    I use MTB gloves because of the thick padding in the palm

    It’s not the bottom bracket which can be prone to creaking?

    Iron deficiency

    I'd also support the blood test, it'll probably let you know with a bit of certanty what it is, be it iron, thyroid, red blood cells or something else. Going back to Rohans earlier post, we have Haemochromitosis in the family, ie too much iron to the point where my mum and aunt have blood letting. My mum is virtually a vegetarian, but still over produces iron in her blood.
  15. Yep, impedance is the term they use. Feeling every bump feels fast, but uses more energy to move the bike and rider. The rougher the surface, the lower the pressure should go within reason to reduce the impedance. The zippcast link I posted above explains it really well.
