    I'm listening to Paula Radcliffe commentating, she seems ok. I have no idea about pacers. The women's race has men pacers but Ketany is 'struggling'.

    At the risk of sounding ignorant, what is it? Its not like any Raleigh Chopper I've seen, so I'm assuming something Aussie?

    What training did you do today?

    14km easy run. 78 mins, wanted to do 90 mins but the blistering with my shoes latently is driving me nuts. Same model of shoes I've been using for the past year. Weird!

    Well I've ridden AdH in real life and it 'seems' to be a fair replication but who knows. I climbed the Zwift version on my TT bike (mostly aero) 8mins faster than the real thing on my road bike 4yrs ago.

    One of my favourite things to do in an evening is radomly troll YT for songs I'd forgotten about. I can't believe this was 20 years ago! That can't be right, can it

    USA shootings and gun laws

    That tech is a decade away according to a guy that seems to know his stuff on ST.
  15. This is a side story to how how I'm planning next year, which I will post about elsewhere. Long story short, I have my 'do it all' bike in Somerset for winter gruelling rides ( as the mags would say). At home in Winchester, my basic plan is to keep the Bianchi and P3 only. This means more of an indoor campaign in winter, both to avoid endless bike cleaning and a desire to be home more and hit some numbers in a structured way. So, after watching a couple of Shane Miller's excellent vids and chatting with a local TT stud who has one, I'm pretty set on getting an Elite Direto trainer. Bearing in mind I ride with zero gadgets ( and I mean zero), what do I need to get funky withZwift, TR and the like, and most importantly, how can I make everything private and avoid all the social media BS that might come with a subscription ( to anything) ? Here's what I have at home right now: A dumb tv with a spare HDMI if I unplug the Firestick. An Amazon Firestick. 2014 iPad mini( 32gb) 2012 MacBook Pro running Sierra, 4gb ram. Dell laptop with Windows 10 which I'd prefer to leave alone if possible. a very dumb smart phone but about to get a smick new one with new job ( don't know which one yet) 5 Sufferfest films bought outright. I have no desire to to get a Garmin type device at this stage and was hoping to capture data on one of the above devices, is that possible? hmm, that wasn't short at all

    Smart turbo/ Zwift and the clueless

    Music is a bit pointless for me on Zwift. Most of sessions are punctuated with helpful comments from Flipper like 'why are you going slow Daddy, why did that man pass you daddy'?

    haha, it's like they searched for non copyright 'clean ze pool' pron music from the 70s. I just mute my whole Macbook or Ipad when using.

    After a workout I'm usually too buggered to re-start the app anyway.

    Shipping time from chain reaction cycles?

    They are owned by the same people that own Wiggle (Bridgeport Capital)

    Generosity

    Have to echo this. I've sent stuff, had stuff sent to me on PIF. Had a very random act of kindness a few years ago from someone I'd never met on here. (have now). Only ever had one slightly negative experience. I think we look after our own community through a shared connection of multi-sport, which is somewhat expected but just taking this thread as an example, people are overwhelmingly nice.

    The good news thread

    It was bought in Oz whilst the guy was travelling. He also had a custom padded bag made for it by McTavish in Byron. (and he threw in some Sex Wax 👍

    The good news thread

    Bought a 7'4 Greg Clough Aloha mini mal from a guy at work. Ideal for Pommie waves (mostly) and great for Flipper to stand on. Can't wait to try it out.
