    Like others have said going to the canaries for training this time of year is pretty standard. At nearby Lanzarote Club la Santa used to be super popular for triathletes in the European winter/spring.

    complete newb - needs advice

    At your height 27.5 might feel less twitchy but you'd need either a small or medium. For the majority of the you yangs trails (plantation) and some of the smaller stuff on the other side you could pretty much ride any priced bike. It's relatively flat with no major jumps/drop offs. Just fast smooth trails with plenty of trees to guide you. I rode a battered 26" hardtail with the forks locked out quite a few times there, and I would say that the biggest bang for your buck there would be to invest in some grippy tyres and work out an air pressure thtat will give you grip in the corners.

    Power meter for shiv

    If you've got the specialized/s-works cranks then p2max is superb. Have one on my TT and Roadie and work perfectly.

    2017 Focus Spine Evo MTB - SOLD

    Selling my brand new Focus Spine Evo mtb. Its a medium with 27.5 wheels. I won this in a prize draw but already have my canyon mtb that i'm happy with, so rather than leave it sat in the garage i'm hoping to sell it. RRP is $4k, looking for $2800. Based in Melbourne but can box it up and send at buyers expense. Its never had pedals fitted and has literally been wheeled from the bike shop to my car and then sat in my garage. Specifications include: 120mm travel, 11 speed sram, dropper post. Would make a great trail bike. Any questions fire away. Cheers
