  1. Your mistake was buying a complete bike. Having been banned from buying any more bikes, my last 3 have been 'accidental'/too good to refuse frame purchases - and it'd be a waste not to build them up now...
  2. Ride the boulie to Chandler Hwy (northern end), turn left over the river, then right at Heidelberg Rd and head for Eltham and beyond.
  3. Still not working for me. Anyone having any luck with it?

    Don't drink at any of the bars/pubs at or near the casino. Just don't. Grab a pint at the Mitre Tavern in Bank Place.
  5. I do the reverse. Swim 200, but tell people I hit stop and swam another 4km...
  6. It took a few rides to get it right, but now it's just a matter of slipping them on and ever so slightly pulling tight before tying.
  7. Love the Giro Empires. Most comfortable cycling shoe I've used. I find the laces mean I can 'fine-tune' the fit much better than Velcro/ratchets.
  8. Make me an offer on one or both pairs - want these gone rather than having to pack them up and move with them.

  10. I'm a 45 in Sidi, Specialized and Giro - never worn Bonts sorry. But: This says a 44.5 Bont is between 280-281mm (depending on model): http://www.bontcycling.com/items/support/sizeChart.html This says a 45 Sidi is 275mm: https://www.bikechaincafe.com/sidi-size-guide/ That said, the above suggests that a size 11 fits the Sidi 45. I wear a 10.5 or 11 US depending on brand/model.
  11. Both pair are around 2 years old - one of a number of pairs I rotated through. Selling rather than packing them up for a move. WHITE PAIR - Genius 5 Pro with Carbon sole In great condition as can be seen from the photos. All ratchets and straps working perfectly. Carbon soles don't show much wear. The rubber heel pads were replaced a few months ago, and haven't been ridden since. There's a bit of chainring grease on the inside of the right shoe (photo 4). This could probably be cleaned off- I just haven't got around to it. Grease can't be seen while riding. A super stiff yet comfortable shoe. $110 posted Aus wide BLACK PAIR: In great condition as can be seen from the photos. All ratchets and starts working perfectly. Carbon soles don't show much wear. The rubber heel pads have plenty of life in them and can be replaced when needed. No damage or marks to the upper. A super stiff yet comfortable shoe. $135 posted Aus wide. Will do both pairs posted for $200 pics can be seen here: http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=89093#wrap
  12. Agree My breakfast alternates between scrambled eggs with baked beans and muesli/granola with fruit and yoghurt. If pushed for time, it's a smoothie. If really pushed for time, an Up n Go. For disaster times, a banana and double espresso.
