  1. Vale Rory O'Donoghue

    Sorry to inform you that Rory of Thin Arthur fame in Aunty Jack (and much more in between being a good AG (68) Warringah tri club member) has passed away. I don’t have any details as yet beyond he was in hospital. He was active on Facebook a few days back with a lovely photo holding his Grandaigher. Ran a 5 k pb a few months back. I assume a few old dudes here would remember him or raced with him in recent years).
  2. Housing Bubble thread.

    Mosman 5-10% off. Few properties getting to auction as buyers take an early offer. 3 months or so now. About to rent for another 12 months having sold in April a few ks west of Rog aka Mr Manly
  3. Kona Counts

    Random comments They are no longer a Canadian brand - bought out 5 years back by PON (who do Focus I think). 3x original designers are gone I think. Vroom White and ? When I came back into riding after a decade out, I went to an S2 as I liked the brand and the Aero story and it was a cool looking bike. A few months later, I was in Hawaii and a p4 was fro sale real cheap (Bike Works I think). Guys told me they sell a few new bikes each year as people fly in with the measurements and then race... no idea if true and how much this changes things Triathletes are sheep a bit. Zipp wheels and Cervelo bikes ... bbaaa (I do not exclude myself from being a sheep! -I own 3 Cervelos. 1 Road (s3), 2 x TT P1 (Aluminium) and a P5 ).
  4. What training did you do today?

    Did my first "race" in 13 months . Club Duathlon 3/21/5. uuggghhh I have lost near 1 min a k in run pace .. but it was better than sitting on my butt at home. Also kinda forgot how much it hurts to wind it up and hold on ...
  5. Your best concert memorabilia........

    Took my 8yold to see Lorde at The Hordern Pav a few years back (pre real famous). Post event I said lets let the crowd go, avoid the rush blah blah. So we went to the front and checked out the stage set up etc (my kid sings a bit). A women came up and started talking to us - well my kid mostly. Long story short - it was Lorde's mum. 5 mins later she has a song sheet signed to my daughter with thanks for coming to your first concert to see me - signed Lorde. lol..wonder if she will ever top that
  6. Trail Running

    Not been on here much and what do I see ^^^^ this = not good - get better
  7. SPAM Accounts

    Fake news ?
  8. Kona LIVE Coverage 2017

    Was originally in April I think
  9. Tubular tyres

    Went to 25mm clinchers. Latex. Match them with the right tyre (prob a 23mm conti) and get good aero and rolling resistance. 30 years of tubbies or singles as they were. No more.
  10. Ironpro what are your thoughts on your new canyon

    P4 had that ie Bottom Bracket fill in bottle. UCI banned it but Tri's we're allowed I haven't seen the bottle is better on down or seat tube. Would love to see the testing on that.
  11. Sydney CBD Bike Service

    Not a bad idea. I can't recommend anyone in city. Mark Newtons specialised shop maybe. But the above suggestions not bad. Walk over the bridge or get a ferry. They may even have a shower you can use ...
  12. Sydney CBD Bike Service

    These were the guys I was going to sugggest.
  13. What training did you do today?

    First time I've done all the sports in this comeback (ssshhh don't say that word). One was a 4 k jog with the dog. And one a slow broken 1200m swim. And some time on the trainer. Still lots not right re body. But improving. Slowly.
  14. garmin TT mount

    A reasonable priced option, come in diff sizes. www.99bikes.com.au/profile-sp-computer-mount-25mm
  15. Sydney CBD Bike Service

    Do you have the ability to get mobile service come to you ie a car park etc?
  16. Going back to a Road Bike for long course.

    I've been slowly in comeback past two months. All on road bike. Put the tri bike on trainer last weekend. Comfy as hell an hour straight up. Ryan @ 3D bike fit and the right saddle. Never been more comfy. Nor more aero.
  17. PRO tri-spoke now in clincher

    If I had coin I'd buy one in a heartbeat. Oh. And some fitness
  18. PRO tri-spoke now in clincher

    Agree. I think the main advantage is the ability to run a wider tyre and lower psi so less rolling resistance. Old school tri spoke with 145psi in a 18mm (or 19?) conti was a bit rough but aero!!
  19. Dcrainmaker and Power

    Me. Power2max. Super simple. Accurate. New pedal based options getting reviewed by him soon.
  20. Which Ironman will you be doing in 2018?

    It's 30 years since my first (in 2018). I had a plan to do one for "fun" but I can't see it happening now. Still. Lot of time to go .... will see.
  21. 9 Weeks to go

    Just a baby still:) The course in 84 was a brute. Run up over Lapstone railway over bridge from memory. Fire trails and along the railway track. I fell. I think it was a 14 k run. The next year was a bit easier. Still had fire trails I think ... But they are all hard. That current 10 k flat just screams for a fast pace. And in the swim you don't get the rush from a recently opened dam in the one way river swim (not sure what year that was ).
  22. 9 Weeks to go

    I'm hoping to get to Nepean* . My first one was in 1984 *being able to swim non stop will be the challenge (still sorting a few issues) - but I've entered.
  23. I am speechless, and that is rare......

    Nice reaction Trout. Great suggestion. Well organised
  24. Balance
