  1. Is there a brighter rear light than this?

    That's pretty good. This is slightly better ... http://store.dinottelighting.com/2018-quad-red-taillight-with-built-in-battery-p111.aspx 200 lumens, 8 hours. learnt about it from a writeup by Rapstar after his accident in 2010. Said Dinotte was the brightest he could find
  2. 'omnivore' The Ominvore's Dilema is a well regarded Michael Polan book on modern eating. diets get labelled, and 'normal' gets shunted to the side by diet labellers because the normal healthy balanced diet is killing us. Balanced and in moderation is failing big time. anyone who thinks seriously about what they eat is ahead of the masses that don't think enough about it. And cynics can choose to ignore the current research at their own peril
  3. Meat and Water Diet Study

    What about other meats, like pork? Love a roast pork. and what about quality of meat ... I expect you pursue free range, grass fed, which as I understand it has less animal stress related cortisol and more good omega 3 than 6 fats. also, will you test out your endurance capacity under this new gig, or is it more short term? i had risotto last night and only managed a paltry 1:45 pace in the rower. Need more meat I'm thinking Knew a family in my youth, only ever ate meat and dessert. No veg, fruit, cereal, breads ... I always said "they're gonna die of heart disease". Well they didn't. Both parents are still alive and have outlived mine, 3 strapping sons, 1 swam for Australia. and Sami Inkinen, who you guys all probably know, is a fascination. not purely meat, but an amazing low carb exponent. Age group winner in Kona and rowed the pacific on meat and nuts.
  4. Kona race day thread

    I started watching the replay on Red Bull straight after they stopped the live coverage. inspirational stuff by all. and how bloody fast was Amberger in the swim. Never seen a guy with that much clear water. Aussies take the swim and bike primes 👍🏼.

  8. Kona race day thread

    Wurf did bloody well. Top 20, still young, and will get better. coveragw as brilliant, likewise the tracker. how was that guy running with Ryf. News alert, you are running 4:30 pace, and you are 2 kms into the marathon ... anything for a bit of spotlight. Huddle called it nicely, "he'll be hands on knees as soon as he turns left"

  13. Kona race day thread

    Look at Sanders . #hardbastard
  14. Kona race day thread

    It's possible huh. Sanders needs to think back to the dark days of his drug and alcohol addiction and pull a ridiculous amount of mental strength out
  15. Kona race day thread

    Sanders needs to tackle Lange when he comes ... muscle him out of the race
