    A Metre Matters

    Same with Mount Mee. But just ask the locals, the real problem on the mountain are the cyclists...not the crotch rocket flogs crashing their brains out every weekend.

    Good lord. This is a car wreck... https://www.durianriderrapist.com/
  3. I thought it had to be you, not many Australian Triantelopes working and training in Mongolia I'd imagine LOL
  4. @Ironnerd did I hear the boys on IM Talk discussing some of your Gobi desert training?
  5. I am walking proof of this. Had a pig/human aortic valve repair at 19, told I might get 10 years out of it. 24 years later and still not looking like it needs replacing. All the best to Mrs Numb, she'll know her limits and what doesn't feel right.

    Do you do weights?

    In Soviet Russia, you no do weights. Weights do you.
  7. @Cranky said there is no way anyone could be that old 😛
  8. Sounds great, how should I contact this Triantelope Philanthropist !? 😁
  9. My yearly "training Camp" pre IMOZ is around the Sunshine Coast region. Roads are generally ok in the early morning, lots of open water swim options and the coastal path is great for long runs
  10. This! I was born with four congenital abnormalities which have over the years required various repairs, I always make a rule of consulting my cardiac care team before making any drastic changes This is interesting, I've always wondered if athletes blinded by the red mist of racing have accidentally gone into hypoxia and if this is a contributor to cardiac arrest?

    New 70.3 in Oceania

    Training camp. Lets go!
  13. Yep, fairly light gauge though. More than likely aluminium.
  14. Pretty sure thats just an inboard seal?
  15. So that "tensioning" bolt is just to preload the bearings and tighten the NDS crank arm against them. The pinch bolts and retaining clip do all the hard clamping work. My guess is the LBS was correct, You may not have loaded the NDS arm far enough over the crank spindle meaning the retaining clip didn't engage the little keeper slot in conjunction with no enough righty tighty.
