    WTB: Softride frame

    I'm looking for a Softride frame, I don't really prefer any special year or model but it has to be suitable for 700c wheels. Simply offert me what you have and we will see..... Unless you life in the Brisbane area +50km, you should be willing to ship that frame otherwise it doesn't make sense...

    need bike lights

    There is only one company when I am talking about Light www.lupine.de Nothing at the same size is brighter and they are of amazing and durable quality. Lupine also has a Australian distributor with little more aussi friendly prices.

    Alpine climbing and oxygen deficit

    I did cross the Alps with Racebike and with MTB. Highest altitude was with MTB, about 3000m. Probably it depends a bit on your overall fitness and how sensitive your body is concerning altitude. But if your legs feel like "lead" it might just be because you climb several 1000m without any break. For instance it takes several hours to climb the "Stilfser Joch" offroad with a MTB. After that you are tired anyway, no matter how high it is. The feeling of climbing for several hours probably makes you thinking you are lacking oxygen, but you are just getting tired that's it. Science has proven that noticeable performance impact won't occure at altitude's less than 2400m. From what I have experienced I would totally agree with that. Remember to bring some armwarmers, leg warmers a west and gloves. Temperature will decrease by 4°C for every 1000m. It can rain at any time even if the weather report tells you it shouldn't rain, so bring a light rain jacket as well. In the Alps, weather can have a far bigger impact on your bike ride than altitude. You easily can have snow and hail in mid summer. The most predictable weather will be from late August to end of September. Have fun!

    Protein powder WARNING

    The very only "Food Supplement" that perhaps everyone of us really needs is energy bars or gels during competition. Except for that just by choosing healthy food,you will get all your body really wants. Just restarted triathlon training 4 months ago after 10years without sport. Lost 15kg of weight and already finished a half Ironman. A healthy lifestyle and a suitable training is the key for everyone's success.
