    WTB clip-on aerobars

    Look what I found - http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/au/en/vision-tt-clip-on-bar-shims/rp-prod36423 Hope my mate has not sold those aerobars I tried before that did not work?

    WTB clip-on aerobars

    Want to put a set on the old SubZero roadie I'm using. Problem is the handlebars seem to be narrower (around 27mm at a rough measure?) than on other bikes I've had. Does anyone have an unused set lying around they want to sell (and probably post to Armidale NSW) that will fit these narrower bars? Just looking for something basic that will do the job, not top of the line stuff. Cheers

    What training did you do today...

    Sadly, we've both decided this is probably a better session than doing a TT on the local roads given what we are aiming for (me the local sprint season, Mrs the Noosa Tri bike leg in Nov), so will be doing it more regularly . Can you believe in the middle of it, she starts asking me did I cook fish on the Webber while she was away, because the Webber (which is nearest her bike) stinks. If there was ever stronger grounds for divorce......

    Christ, you're not betrothed to a Manly supporter or something like that are you

    Don't usually post here as my training is wussy these days, but y'day the Mrs & I did the Sufferfest 30min TT on the windtrainers. It hurt quite a lot. HR only got to 152 max, but holding over 148 for that long was tough, and I was mostly using gears which limited my cadence to 72-90 (i.e. trying the Sutton school of TT, not matching the cadence of the cyclists on the screen which was 100+). There are some nice politically-incorrect sexist moments in that Sufferfest vid too

    Sharks vs Broncos

    Still, my life would be complete if the Sharkies beat the Silver Tails in a GF.....preferably by 1 point in Golden Point Extra Time after Manly finished minor premiers & the Sharks in 8th. I was all set to tell my St George supporting mate to take Josh Dugan back at half time y'day till he redeemed himself with a 2nd half try. Aaron Woods looks a bit cooked too. Valentine Holmes is a legend, what a natural & exciting player. Feki & Erdic Lee also so v talented. And even if Gallen shits non-Sharkie fans and they boo him relentlessly, you can't deny the bloke is a brick in the middle (and fcuk em anyway cos I like him ).

    I think beating Melbourne has become more satisfying than beating Manly (not that we seem to ever achieve the later). The ref did his best to penalise the Sharkies into oblivion, but you gotta expect that playing Melb in Melb The skills & athleticism in NRL has gone thru the roof in the last decade, some of the tries down the touchlines are simply amazing. Makes RU look like sumo jelly wrestling in leg irons.

    Hogwarts? Seriously though, it is a bloody good...and somewhat creepy pic.

    Do as i say, Dont do as I do.

    Looks like mould coming through the paint? Watched a very interesting episode of Forensic Files on Netflix y'day where an American family got very sick (some permanent damage) from 11 !!!! leaking pipes (fcking subbies ) in their mansion causing mycoplasma toxicity (from mould) poisoning. Their insurance company kept stalling their attempts to rectify, eventually they had to abandon the property. They sued insurance company for $6M (the value of their property) but were awarded $32M due to permanent health damage! Got told at work this week by another contractor I was "going into too much depth" in trying to validate his figures - fcuk off you lazy @#$%^@%. Do it properly or don't bother.

    XC or trail for beginner?

    I can't lock out either shock on the Norco. Could lock out the front suspension on the Mrs hardtail though....and that could end in tears on the single track if you forgot to unlock it.

    It's too much fun Ian, you'll probably never go back to IM I started on my wife's Giant hardtail, but then bought an entry-level dually, and a dually is WAY WAY better and more comfy for the chronologically challenged. And more forgiving re likelihood of crashing (I've not crashed the dually yet, but had plenty on the hardtail). 100% my experience too Willie. I was worried about lack of power to the ground on a dually but meh, that is really only an issue on the bitumen riding home from the tracks. $2,200 for my basic Norco dually from the LBS. 27.5 inch wheels, a boost front axle (whatever that is - can someone explain?), no dropper post though. When I fix my body enough to run a bit more, I'm aiming for some off-road tris (e.g. T-rex).

    swimming video on GTN. Help me out here

    Lol, check out his arm in the recovery phase from 1:22. That is exactly what the local expert told me was wrong with my stroke, Bollocks to him, it works for me.

    Brett Sutton got Daniela Ryf to forget about her 'perfect pool technique' (even though she misses doing it), says it does not apply to triathlon. The local swim coach was always into me like a rat up a drainy whenever he saw me swim, said I had too much arm crossover under my body on the pull-through, and elbows not high enough. I decided the Sutton school of stroke will do me. I still seem to swim faster than most whenever I hop in the pool (only 2x/week), even with pull & band.

    One went me last week on the MTB. Told the stupid f*cker "it's July, which is winter! WTF are you doing". He didn't care, just kept doing stall dives at me & calling me a @#$%^& in screeching magpie lingo. Two dogs chased me on the same ride. Took up MTB cos I thought it would be safer than riding on the road

    2018 Goals-what are they ?

    Was aiming to complete the local tri series next season, but I've said that the past 2 seasons and not got there. Whenever I approach something mildly resembling bike & piddling run consistency, the ole knees start going south and I can't return to the constant knee Hell of the past. Would also like to do that Fingal off-road tri in Sept, but we'll see. On the plus side, I've discovered mountain biking which I enjoy way more than road cycling, and despite only doing 2 swims/week, I'm quite happy with how it's going in prep for the Noosa team tri. Also want to catch a 100cm+ cod on fly!
