    JetBlack Whisper Drive

    Hi, Wondering if anyone here has had experience with JetBlack Whisper Drive trainer. I am in the market for a new basic trainer and want to move away from the roller-type to keep the noise and wear down. Interested in what people think of them and perhaps if Im lucky enough, someone may have one or a direct drive trainer to sell. Thanks in advance RR

    Hydration setup

    Have a think about what you'll do with your water bottle once you have finished its contents. ----> Discard it and grab another from the aid-station. You won't get your aero bottle back. <----- Perhaps the best approach is to have less bottle cages strapped to your bike and use bottles you can discard. Go for a BTA cage and a tube cage and rotate bottles as you need them

    Ryf 70.3 World Champion.

    Im sorry but how can Ryf win by such a margin? What an absolute machine and you'd be silly not to back her for Kona. How many times has there been a multi-year Half and Full Champion in either the Males or Females?

    Wooden bike storage

    Looks like an awesome idea.I think the one from Peleton Cafe would sag over time due to the largely unsupported downward weight. Easily fixed with some cross-bracing and vertical support. Don't have any plans for one but it would be fairly easy to take this as a concept and develop your own. All the best with it and be sure to post a pic of what you end up with

    Hi All, Looking at entering 70.3 Australia in 2018 as part of a team and wondering if this can be done as a team of two. Im looking at doing the swim & bike and a mate of mine will do the run. Anyone know if this would be OK. Thanks RR

    2017 IMOZ TV Coverage

    In past years, TV (I think channel 73) has reliably shown TV coverage of IMOZ 2 weeks after the event on a Sunday. Based on this, there should be something on this Sunday but I haven't been able to find it on the program. Does anyone have any further insights into this or know if and when this coverage will be shown? Thanks in advance

    Ironman Australia 2017

    Only had a quick look at the info recently posted on the webpage, but it looks like there is a voucher for dinner to the value of $30 as a replacement for the Welcome Dinner. Can't see anything to replace the Awards Dinner other than a function at the Beach House. Didn't think the Beach has was big enough to accommodate everyone
