  1. On another forum somewhere....... "You know what I don't get? Triathalon, especially that Ironman triathalon. They swim and ride and run all day and end up in the same place they started."
  2. Ah, good old lawyer bashing. Never gets old, does it?
  3. Whenever I say to @Stikman I could do with some swim coaching he always wanders off muttering, saying things like "un-coachable"......I'm not sure what he's trying to say.....
  4. Yeah, I'm kinda erring on the side of caution now. I think the difference between the helmet and shoe analogy is I can feel when my shoes are getting to the point where they are going to start hurting me. The helmet I'm not going to know if it's going to protect me until it either does or it doesn't. This looks good. I like the removable slots idea. Thanks all.
  5. What is it about Kask that people like?
  6. It was recently pointed out to me that my roadie helmet in particular is about due to be replaced having been manufactured in 2011 and my TT will need replacing soon, but not right away. I've got a few web pages open at the moment, trying to see what's what and I have not the slightest clue what I should be looking for, other than I want white. Trannies brains trust, please help guide me. What do I need and don't need? For clarity, where I started coming unstuck was when they said things like MIPS.........
  7. I'm like you FP. I will look something up I see/hear about, but I don't listen/watch/read any news services. Stikman often teases me about how little I know of what is going on in the world, and is also often surprised when I do know about something as he doesn't expect it. I am happier for it though.
  8. No, but I did just google it and saw two results from 2 and 3 days ago which when you follow them say "404 page not found".

    Roadie to TT sizing

    @Stikman being the 'other' kind of giant may be able to help here.
  10. And today it became the formal offer with the reams and reams of paperwork to complete and return. I start on Monday. The relief is palpable. Such a shame I now only have 6 days to get all the stuff done I would have loved to get done while not working but couldn't manage cause I was too bloody stressed! lol
  11. While I like the concept, I don't even like my partner touching my stuff, let alone having it out of my sight with a stranger.
  12. As a daisy by the time they finished.
  13. Stikman and I did the Gingin "long course" tri today. He says he can't believe I beat him on the run. But he says that's only because he ran with his kid to make sure she didn't stop running. Apparently. She beat him in a sprint finish too. I only got 4th in my age group this race. No podium for me this time. Was rather amusing right at the end. The woman who beat me for 3rd by 10 seconds and I had kind of tag teamed for third spot most of the race (though I had no idea about that till after the race as I had no idea where I was in the field let alone even if she was in my age group or not). The end of the run course was up a decent hill which I was fast walking up. She was running and passed me about half way up and then about 15m ahead of me she started walking. As we reached close to the top and the gradient started petering out I started running again. The moment I reached her she looked over at me and started running again. I jokingly said, "oh, are we racing now?" She was not amused. I got a most shirty "no, I'm not racing anyone but myself" and she ran off. She got too big a start on me though and try as I might, once I had decided I might just race her after all whether she liked it or not, I couldn't catch her.
  14. Apparently he live streamed the whole thing.
