    Garmin 935 $399 at rebel - good value?

    That's a great price, you probably won't find it cheaper. It's a great watch worth every cent but as Slunnie said it really only up to you to decide..

    Thanks for the replies! Looks like the way to go. Just to make sure, is this what you guys are talking about? https://www.pushys.com.au/praxis-works-bb30-pf30-bottom-bracket-shimano-hollowtech-ii.html

    BB30 convertor

    Has anyone used one of these? http://www.wiggle.com.au/fsa-bb30-conversion-kit/ I currently have a FSA crankset with BB30 on my bike and I wanted to swap to a shorter 165mm cranks, which seem to be quite hard to find. I also have a spare Ultegra 6700 crankset with the right arm length so I’m thinking of getting the converter and then change to the Ultegra crankset. Has anyone done it?…would you recommend it or are there better options?

    Challenge Roth

    Lets face it, long runs suck, especially solo” Peter V used to say the same thing. Maybe sucking it up and getting that 2hr run in every Sunday morning followed by another hour AT RACE PACE in the evening like Crowie for the next 3 months instead of racing every weekend might ... just might ... have a better effect? Petr Vabrousek is one of a kind! He considers himself as a lazy person that doesn't like training (funny for someone who's done over 185 IM's). He only does 2 -3 session a week, but he would do a race almost every weekend (from a 5k fun run to an IM). His long run doesn't go over 2hrs and long ride is 3hrs max. It will be interesting to see how he goes at the Ultraman World Championship this year.

    TA Membership time

    Everyone mentions $120 - 140. I received an email saying the renewal will cost me $235 (I believe last year was even more)!! Is that because I'm not a club member?? I've only been doing about 3 races a year (Kurnell included ) and I just can't justify the money anymore!

    c02 on planes?

    Flew to Perth no issues (Virgin) but was given two choices when travelling to Austria - either leave the bike case in Sydney ( I had 5x cO2 in it) or let the airport stuff to break in and take c02 out. Thankfully they failed to break the locks and called me to bring the key. Apparently only 40g is allowed I was told.

    Running gait - splayed feet

    If runners like Emil Zatopek taught us anything -it's that running style/technique doesn't matter as long as it works for you (your body).

    What saddle are you using?

    Same for me. I even tried different saddles but had similar issues, until I was recommended Ryan from 3D bike fit (apparently the seat was too high). Been on the Sitero since a no issues...

    Borrow a bike box?

    B&W International bike box (the older version) in Naremburn if you need. It's ugly and heavy (11kg) but it certainly does the job!
