  1. Stages Power Meter

    The stages is the easiest to swap between bikes. I have a near new 175mm Ultegra one I can sell if anyone is interested. Building a new cross bike and it won’t fit.
  2. IMNZ 2018 Roll Down

    I know the guy second in 60-64 and he said there were two spots and he got one ?
  3. This one got off in Perth last week http://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/elderly-mandurah-man-found-not-guilty-over-death-of-cyclist-20180208-h0vsqi.html didnt notice he did it
  4. Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    One guy went out and did the swim at night after he finished the run !
  5. Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    Plenty of heat in wa, don’t need Queensland for that. You guys already have one Ironman, don’t be greedy. As for Pete Jacobs he has dnf more races than I have had hot dinners. I feel sorry for the guys that wanted to finish and got pulled for a shark and then a fire, the finisher medal will be a hollow feeling for them tonight. There is always next week for pros, but for some age groupers this is the only chance they get.
  6. Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    Could be a lightning storm coming by the look of it, may as well chop some off the run leg.
  7. Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    So back to the race, the bike leg was cut short due to a bush fire ?
  8. Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    Is the race still going or has the live tracker given up ?
  9. Imwa race day. Swim cancelled

    Sharks, flies and bushfires. They are getting a true WA summer experience out there today.
  10. Carrying 3 bikes in ute tray?

    I use this in my hilux and it works so well I never bothered getting a fork mount ; https://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/T7CAUN7TQ/title/torpedo7-ute-tailgate-pad-with-bungy-kit
  11. This is what happened to Jan

    Throw gomez and talansky into the mix next year and maybe a brownlee or two and things won't be getting any easier
  12. SRAM etap (again)

    Park have a tool for pulling the wires through with magnets, I have not tried it yet but will soon.
  13. I would just put clip on bars on the new roadie, keep life simple. Then you can just justify a nice roadie with the savings. I am running a Sworks Venge Vias.
  14. There seems to be a very important point being overlooked here ; At autopsy, clinically relevant (but presumably previously unrecognized) heart/vascular disease was found in many victims The exercise is blamed for their death when it is likely their genetic condition was largely responsible. I have not had time to read the article but I hope this sample bias is recognised.
  15. Etap disc Vs di2 disc

    I have had no problem with my etap, but it has only done 3500km so far. 13,000 on the di2. Still on my second set of brake pads on di2 by the way including some very muddy cx races, never had to adjust the brakes once including when I swap wheels, just for the uniformed that say discs are a hassle to maintain.
