  1. As the title says, what's everyone listening to? Anything worthy non-tri related? Thanks in advance Ayto
  2. Listened to all episodes (17 in total I think ) over 2 days in the car to SA & back. I can;t believe some of the fundamental mistakes made since she disappeared. Police, DPP, dept of Education. Will be interesting to see what comes from the group of former students who are starting to gain momentum / voice around the actions of teachers way back then.

    The pool thread

    Bit of an update from me as well. As alluded to above, the second pump was indeed on its way out. After numerous calls to supplier, he finally asked us to leave gate unlocked so he could call around one Saturday morning "for a look". We arrived home later that day to find the whole thing replaced with another pump. All good, except when the invoice arrived several weeks later for $560. I rang him to discuss the work completed and why it was done without advising us prior nor advising us of approx cost before works were completed. A bit of argy bargy and we settled on $400 and 30 days to pay. To be honest, I could have paid the full amount on time but it just grinds my gears when shit like this is done without discussion. We now have the gears for the infloor system have failed (second time for these as well) and, again despite numerous requests, he has yet to turn up and either "have a look" or replace the bloody things. The replacement is very, very simple as the replacement unit simply drops into place except they are jammed in there and I don't want to force anything for fear of damaging anything else. Overall, the pool is pretty easy and looks after itself. If the follow up service was up to scratch any of these issues could be dealt with in a simply and timely manner, however our experience is that there is no service so these issues tend to blow out over time causing frustration and angst.............and the subsequent argy bargy. Still happy with it and glad we went to the trouble of installing, but the service piece just leaves a bit of a sour taste cheers Ayto

    WTB - Carbon wheelset

    Hey Guys, Looking to see if anyone has a wheelset laying around they are thinking of off-loading. Looking for 50/60mm deep if possible. Intend to use as a full time wheel set and leave on the bike. Will be used predominately for the upcoming charity ride I am doing in Feb. Ideally would like to be able to do something around the 5 hungee mark, but probably dreaming. Can maybe stretch to $700 if needed. Anyone got anything out there? Thanks in advance Ayto

    What training did you do today...

    Have been doing all (most) of my riding on the windtrainer, predominately as I am sick and tired of getting "elbow buzzes" when I am out on the road on my own. I generally will only hit the road if I know I am with at least 4 or 5 others. I guess this is what a couple of stacks does as I am now quite gun shy this time around. Anyways, yesterday was a double session day with a ~35km (1hr 15ish) recovery session AM, followed by a hard ~45km (90mins) interval session PM. Sad thing is, apart from the ultra sore gooch, I am starting to look forward to each session on the windtrainer. Is there something wrong with me?

    Have pulled my head in after being out of routine with travelling and workload. Small steps and steady downward progression at least

    Garmin 935 $399 at rebel - good value?

    Cheers, thanks Goughy. Not sure the separate straps are needed at this stage, however can always be purchased separately in need!! Hard to pass up the value at $399 so will likely pull the trigger!
  10. Been binging on this of late. Highly recommend.

    Garmin 935 $399 at rebel - good value?

    So just to be clear (as I am a techo numpty), you can synch the watch to your phone and upon completion of an activity, it will automatically upload to Strava? Also, i noticed that you can buy a "tri bundle" which includes separate tri hrm strap and swim hrm strap, along with qr mount etc. Why are the 2 x hrm straps necessary if it measure hrm from the wrist??? TIA Ayto

    Bike computer options

    Hi all, Still running an old garmin 310 which has served me well, but connectivity issues makes it a pain to try and upload anything. Mate is working hard to get me to commit to a Wahoo Element Bolt as he reckons its the ducks nuts. Not doubting that it is, however if i ever get the foot right and can run again I would like something that can cater for multisport and / or have the capacity to pair to the wahoo hrm. Too many options and I am confused. Anyone have any suggestions / recommendations Budget circa $500 so dont tell me a new fenix or something, even though though they look awesome. Cheers in advance Ayto

    Bike computer options

    My preference if possible is a jack of all trades, which is why the 310 has been great as it can be mounted on the bike or wrist. However, if need be, I am happy to go a separate bike computer such as the Element Bolt, and then down the track get a watch option...........but want to make sure it is compatible and will pair with the Wahoo HRM, if that makes sense. I don't use a PM and don't see myself doing so.

    Holidaying with work mates

    Did a golf trip to Tassie for the weekend with a couple of the blokes from work earlier this year. Was a good weekend and would do it again, but.............you need to pick your mark and know who you are heading away with. Plenty of others at my work I wouldn't even entertain the thought.

    Painless when you know how!! FYI - I was charged $10.00 plus the paypal fee of 0.56c so you should get the full amount through

    Agreed. I like Matt generally, but his over-confidence was his undoing. Benji was just a knob. How is Grubby's form? Can't believe he is still there at this stage when he is such a lazy f@!k!!
