  1. That was the expectation anyway, that wont have anything to do with the water, we've just had our time. It's a shame because we were all swimming in the water in last weekends club triathlon. Hopefully if/when the event shifts on from Orange it will go south so the southern clubs can have a bit of a run at the event also, just as the north and us in the west have had over the recent years. Share it around the state, give all of the clubs some experience with the event.
  2. At least with the shift towards disc brakes, you can replace the rotor rather than the whole rim.
  3. I've pretty much used my current set of Zipp 404 firecrest for everything since about 2013
  4. Josh amberger for me too. His ramblings and baiting of Ash are hilarious.
  5. Cracks me up! I'll take 15sp when it comes out! Best move I ever did for my riding was fit an 11-32 11sp and compact crank! I don't think corn cobs are the go around here.
  6. I think Brenton Ford from Effortless Swimming is coming up soon for some sessions. I've done a few and they are excellent. https://effortlessswimming.com/

    X-LAB Biddon cage

    2 bottle is easy to use also. You need bottle carriers that hold the bottle up high with a good lip that holds onto the bottle dent so they dont eject on big bumps.
  8. Oh... sorry. I must have turned that off on mine.
  9. Seems they went the other way
  10. The 935 has a thermometer. I think the temps vary from the ambient though for a number of reasons like direct sun and body temp.
  11. How cool is that! Reminds me of doing events with Triathlon South in Hobart where they run on the sand. That’s a unique Parkrun in Newcastle!

    Zwift Run

    Can the Garmin 935 act as a foot pod? It has the capacity to estimate speeds etc on the treaty, Im not sure if it will send that as live data though.
  13. Do you expect to have groceries in your trolley after you've paid for them.
  14. Are the shirts free, and you pay the postage? Here is the man that would know. A week ago I was lucky enough to do Parkrun in Singapore with Paul Sinton-Hewitt, he's the founder of Parkrun. Well, when I say I did Parkrun with him, he was a fair bit quicker than me!

    Steffen’s P5X

    Pros are having great results on both. Its just preference. Chrissie Wellington was smashing everybody on the P2.

    LA still a WINNER

    Well, the man is a survivor on a few fronts. Today I listened to a great podcast he had with Anne Hed, he did that well.

    2018 wrap up

    Its good to reflect: Lowest moment? None really. Melting down 2.7km into the Singapore East Coast parkrunMost rewarding moment? Finishing Ironman AustraliaWorst race? Singapore East Coast Parkrun - It really wasn't that bad though.Best Race? Enjoyable is that measure - Bintan 70.3, super hot though!Harshest lesson? Packing my bike for Bintan70.3, Crank was in the wrong location, broken Zipp wheel on arrival.What was your aim for 2018, did you achieve it? To have fun in long course, and I did.What was your biggest learning? If planned well, international events can be a lot of fun. What is your aim for 2019? Bring on the pace. Most hated training session? Long (ie any) sessions on the bike trainer.Most loved training session? slow running.
  18. Can’t comment too much on the others but I have had Garmin Vector (dual sided) since not long after the first came out years and years ago and the have been great.
  19. I feel like I'm just a grass hopper in this company! Love the old school steam pipe bikes. swimmers and stack hats. 2010 I think I started 10x70.3, 6xIM, 1xDualthonWC, 1xCrossTriWC qualified but was sick for it, but really just having BOP fun with it more than anything.
  20. But they actually needed to do something. Two or three times I was passed by a peleton who were literally on each others wheels while being followed by the draft busters. I'm actually PMSL because there was no way that I could see that thay weren't getting carded... but every time I was wrong.
  21. What a great day, but wow, I was just absolutely stunned at the blatant drafting today.
  22. With my P3, I do Bento box with nutrition. Aquacell BTA on the front for IM and Torpedo for 70.3, , Xlab on the back with 2 small bottles, 1 for repair kit and the other for drink concentrate. I refill the BTA every 60kmish for IM or 30km for 70.3. I keep a light wire cage on the frame just for juggling water bottles when passing through aid stations. Not saying its the best or worst setup, its just what works for me and how I like to do it. As a BOPer I cant 100% rely on aid stations.

    Bike bib for ya bits

    I have heard some say the seat should be flat, I am absolutely not a believer in that. Angling the seat nose down will give you more comfort and nut room, allow you to rotate your hips more which will flatten your back out and you can setup your armrests so that you don't slide forward or backward in the seat in a relaxed position that doesnt require effort to hold yourself. I very briefly tested a Sitero but it wasnt for me, but it seems a really popular seat.

    Bike bib for ya bits

    Is it your seat position? I run my saddle, a fizik arione vsx, 6 degrees nose down and the seat has a deep groove to give a bit more relief through the centre
