    WTB: Roka Maverick size Male Small

    Hey mate i bought one directly from ROKA. Sign up to their newsletter - you'll get a discount code for 15 or 20% (can't recall).. I bought the mid-range Maverick and IIRC it was $540 or so shipped.

    Jackie Fairweather Memorial / Tri Series

    A lot of fun. Swam ok (for me) and exited with about 5 other guys. We rode hard and ended up picking up small groups of twos and threes throughout the bike to finish with about 20 of us! Great fun, really different and a real shame that's the only DL race for the season!

    Jackie Fairweather Memorial / Tri Series

    If it's run like this (concurrently) all the time, it'll never 'take-off'. Needs to be clear and well-separated waves and minimum confusion. It'd also be awesome to see more draft-legal races as organisers have been inert. Done right, with: interesting courses (shorter bike courses which are more spectator friendly i.e. 5x4km loops or something) and big gaps between age groups these could be a lot of fun and much more interesting to both participate in AND watch. A lot of work to do.

    Jackie Fairweather Memorial / Tri Series

    3.14 & 3.15 http://www.triathlon.org.au/Assets/Triathlon+Australia+Digital+Assets/2016+2017+RCR+Upd.pdf Basically, it has to be a road bike with "normal" wheels (no discs/minimum of 12 spokes) and no clip ons. At the draft-legal event in March, the TO's tried to tell me that my garmin mount on the front was not allowed however it ended up being fine.. edit to add..

    dunno what he goes by other than rich, but using an ad-hominem won't make the truth go away

    Yeah coined by a psychologist named Melanie Joy.Rich Roll did a podcast with her a few months ago, and there's a pretty good 20min TED talk on youtube by her. worthwhile watching the ted talk.

    relevant to discussion pal. only 3 posts *ever* where i've used the word vegan mate.

    I'm a vegan and have no problem with killing pests (feral pigs/horses etc) which are bad for ecology. I do have a problem when farmers want to cull roos or something so they might graze their cattle with less hinderance. Others will see it differently.

    These figures are 'calculated' and 'averaged'. Omnivores who consume 'normal' (Australian's third on the list of meat-consuming nations per person so our version of 'normal' is an outlier) amounts of dairy/meat/poulty contribute to industries which kill over 150 BILLION animals yearly. So, by NOT choosing to consume/wear/use animal products, one doesn't contribute to these industries.

    I'm a vegan. Been vego a long time but made switch to vegan this year. Have found it great, personally. Eat amazing stuff and have loads of energy. Eating can be a bit tricky, but fine.
  15. Anyone heading there? I'm personally quite excited to race this - something different!
