  1. That looks familiar.. Hope you are well mate.
  2. Give it to 2023 Rox and then it is expected to be equally priced. Will fall post that. Interesting to see the charging network convo. My guess is most charging will happen at home (11pm onwards) and companies will offer charging as a staff benefit. There will be minimal need for the traditional petrol station.
  3. Dalai, Not around much these days, watching people play scrabble has me here now! I don’t do much either any more, but am a good listener or even good to just sit with. Yell out if you want - no pressure. Shaun
  4. Had it done in late March mate... can share any stories and answer a bunch of questions if need. I had four and a half months of bliss.... and then it shat itself again a fortnight ago. Off to the cardiologist next Friday to work out next steps....
  5. Yep.... but that ain’t a paint chip caused by a stone, etc. Something has been dropped on it and to me, it looks like something of size. The previous owner will know exactly what..... I would be arranging to have it scanned. The response to the email will be “we are more concerned by what we can’t see”. Can’t remember what it cost me to get fixed, maybe $500ish including painting.
  6. From Trannie Whodesigns. He is the godfather of carbon and carbon repair in Aus. http://luescherteknik.com.au/ Be prepared that it will be a strip of all the components and $$$ to fix. I know this from experience.
  7. I’m with IP... that ain’t no paint chip. You can see the carbon separating. Where are you based? If in Melb, $100 for a scan and will be told definitely what damage it is. My guess? You got it for a bargain
  8. I probably have a bit of a unique insight into this. I was at the school when the attacks happened: in year 11 to be exact. I knew/know many exCcathedral College choir kids. I attended the masses and celebrations. I have met George numerous times. At school and at church. He is a big imposing man. My recollection is he would have to be 6'4+. Dad is 6'3 and George is definitely bigger. He would have been 110kgs+. He would have been mid 50's as well so still relatively fit. For comparison, when I was 13, I would have been lucky to be 5' and 50kgs. He towers over you. The main thing fo
  9. Buy pedals, then cranks and then new cleats for a few pairs of shoes and well chainset based just seems easier...
  10. I kind of relate to this. I had really no issues other than an burst eardrum from a knock at a turning can, that decides to "reburst" itself every time I go too deep in a pool. And then I had a little heart incident... and now booked in for surgery in March. In the words of the doc "not uncommon for people your age, especially in elite athletes". That was my paraphrasing of a long conversation 😂
  11. Ex - pretty sure we used to work together if I am piecing things together correctly. June 20th is my code word. I got out in November, after being directly placed into a role through the October round. My team was halved and the work remained. I went from a B1 to being paid a B1 doing the work of my grad. The mental health change (in moving out of the org) has been enormous: getting away from what was a pretty dire culture and everyone waiting for the next round: some hoping to be included (old timers) and others worried about being able to pay their mortgage. I don't have any advice
  12. Hi All, I am new around here. Approx 10years ago I bought a Quarq power meter off a rodent named Otter. It has worked flawlessly until a couple of weeks ago. Battery replaced, calibration failing and numbers all over the shop. It's time for a new one. What's the go these days? Looking for crankbased as 10 year old non working powermeter chainset will ruin my street cred if I leave it on the bike. Steno
  13. If they were four white skinned girls you wouldn’t have got them a car?
  14. I come back to the forums and not much as changed... Yoyo is back and CEM is back doing IM’s
  15. Alex... don’t answer on the forum.......... 🚔👮‍♂️👮‍♀️
  16. Cotton, Can Google to get a feel of the predictions for new iPhones. New Pixel is typically very end Oct, first week of Nov. If wanting cheap and overseas, have a look at Oppo
  17. Have a friend racing who has sent me a video.... rain is pelting down sideways. It looks really really ugly. I would not want a deep front wheel!!
  18. So..... I think about dying often and 6months ago I never had... I shared a recent heart health story and this journey was compounded by a CT scan of my heart picking up an unrelated abnormal mass / tumour in my back. A month of MRIs, seeing Cancer specialists and having a biopsy of a "mars bar" sized tumour resulted in a diagnosis of a benign ganglioneuroma. That was a bit scary! To finish things off.... I applied for life insurance and they promptly rejected me! Back to the heart... Mum nearly died a few years ago from Brugada syndrome (heart thingy); having not had a heart i
  19. Goughy, Based in Melbourne, we had Solar installed in Aug. We have a 5kw system of 17 x 300w LG Panels and Fronius Primo inverter. Cost was just under $7k after rebates. We have 6 panels facing North and 11 panels facing West. Like you, basically someone is always in the house so consuming during daylight hours. Our power bill was $455 for May, June, July (our Gas bill is a different story!). For the period of Aug, Sept, Oct we dropped to $60. Actual numbers compared to the same quarter last year are: last year we purchased 26.11kw per day. The quarter with Solar was 3.52kw's so a s
  20. Correct - it is a surgical option available It’s not really the high heart rate as an issue - more the high and low sequence. Going from 180 to 30 in 1 second and the back up to 190 20secs later is no fun. This can repeat for hours. In terms of tests: I presented to emergency in AF and was captured on ECG. Had many since ECGs since, worn a halter (portable ecg) for a few days, blood tests and ultrasound of heart. Sounds like I just need to get out and do the rides and see how I go. Feels weird to feel so mortal and very hard to overcome the mental block of the chance to go
  21. Hi Guys, Been a while.... I have had an interesting time, being the elite endurance athlete that I was, I have in September spent 3 days in hospital with AF. Reality is, I have had AF numerous times before including in Three Peaks ride and I suspect in a few other events, numerous training and just generally. After many tests, followups and seeing different specialists, the end result is I am able to slowly get back into exercise, but need to take tablets to do so. I am told AF won't kill me, but has left me uneasy: particularly due to riding to work (11km pancake flat) has se

    Anyone watched 60 days in? Anyone found a way to pay for it outside of fancy technical stuff?

    An interesting fact you probably aren't aware of Rog, named after Tyno and Ratdog.
  24. Bored@, I had that same thought when I went for my first interview in 15 years - even thought I was heavily experienced in the industry and had never seen anyone wear a suit and tie... Was commented on 3 times in interview and I didn't get the job - I didn't understand the market apparently. They then hired my ex- staff member. Wore no tie for next interview - got the job. Not saying this is scientific but I will be practising Cottoneyes comment going forward.
  25. Invaded... Pretty simple really. People here before James rocked up on his ship? Yep. Did he turn up with a musket? Yep. Did he have the intention to occupy? Yep. Now settled is an interesting one... Come to an agreement? I reckon if you turned up in court and the other party could show evidence of little understanding or consideration then they would be in a very strong position to say any "settlement" was not binding.
