    Busso 2018

    Best of luck for all doing Busso. Bit of a maybe but had the missfortune to cancel accom at Busselton Sunday. I asked yesterday if it was still available but no reply as yet. So info is, canceled an AirBnB, but it is Villa 38, a 2 bed 2 bath @ Cape View Beach Resort. If it works for you, give it a shot. Suplementary question before I search... Anyone know of/have anything available for Port Mac in May? Cheers

    Port accomodation

    Another one, and keeping this thread alive. I to have now decided, no Port Mac this year and had paid a small reservation deposit at Northpoint Apartments for "Ironman 2017" in a 2 Bedroom Courtyard Apartment - for <4 people. Arriving: Wednesday May 3, 2017 Departing: Wednesday May 10, 2017 Total tariff of $1,465.00 Not sure of the the T&Cs on transfers (looking to preserve my reservation deposit), Northpoint likely have their own 'wait list' but happy to try and make this work with Northpoint if anyone interested. Propose to contact them tommorrow.

    Power Meter + Watch

    You have a power meter – an SRM and PowerControl, measures and displays the usual real time power, cadence, speed, distance, time, heart rate, altitude. So what do you get for run and swim training? Needs to be: readable (I’m old), simple to operate (I’m old) include every day watch (could be late), work with Training Peaks. Want: the usual Hr pace distance time Nice to have: pacer and swim laps even a map What do you recommend? Are you qualified?
  13. So in 2012 winner of age group was eight minutes faster than winner of same age group in 2014. Now who will hold the course record? Where there changes to the course that justify claiming a new course record in that particular age group? Is there such a thing? Think your answer should include your palmares for IM Melbourne.

    Canberra 70.3 Race Previews

    Where do we find the full field results - not up on Multisport. CapeHorn came ??
  15. Hi Ayto Well done on the job. Happy to comment and hope that it provides some assistance. “role is offering a package including a "tax free vehicle allowance" so I need to buy a vehicle.” Why do you need to buy a ‘new’ car? “leave ya money on the fridge” an turn up in the ol’ HQ. It’s no more thirsty than your Crew Cab proposal which you will run on an ‘allowance’ Beware the said "tax free vehicle allowance". Respectfully suggest that you want need to document that very well. Not quite unusual but needs an ATO ruling for your specific so suggest that any deal that says tax free comes with ‘protection’ and in the event of any surprises like the $13k invoice from the ATO you will be protected and not out of pocket. Also ensure the said allowance is sufficient to cover all of your running costs for your presumably ‘business use’. “fit a minimum of 5 and room for my bike(s) or capacity to carry on the roof.” Remember as the rear seat occupants grow you will need genuine space (as opposed the sales reps, hey look at that mate 3 in the back easy J) and the foot space is restricted, shoulder space is tight for the 10yr olds, and the seats are uncomfortable. Would question the comfort of most ‘crew cabs’ “A mate of mine is a dealer for these Great Walls” There are NO mates in the industry, not even if you are getting free time with his wife. If you are set on The Wall the quotes are retail, you don’t have a trade, its winter (read slow), he hasn’t even dipped into his margin, and you haven’t even shopped him ….yet. I’m not even going to seriously visit the dealer guide and the ‘retained value’ of your investment but suggest that you look at the used sale price and reduce that by 20%. Oh genuine 5 seater, $30k budget with bike space, there are a few but hard to go past lo k Commode/Pord – wagon. (there are more depending upon your pref. Would all come with Tooth, Clunk, Air, Fast Glass all you will need is a Hook. Sorry for the negative feedback but it was about cars and you did ask. Beware free advice often as valuable as its cost J and for the rest don’t spank me, hate the game not the player and help Ayto with some objective assessment.

    AP murder attempt fails

    Are you sure .... I saw a lonely skinny figure shuffling down a street this morning (still only 2 degrees) at 8am, I toot the horn several times and eventually a head turns and looks through what could have been glazed eyes but sees nothing and I thought still delirious, as he jogs on. And probably late for work. Yours Spy

    Lights on TT bike

    OK google this "Profile Design Computer Mount UCM & UCM XL" if you want to see something that will mount at right angles to tri bar extensions. To this you can mount your 900lumen lamp by its O rings. Or try your LBS likely to have or get it for you. Or go fashion your own from say carbon seat post or a tri bar extension 'off cut'. Radius one end _________ _________( drill hole adjacent to the radius and attach to tri bar extension with a zipp tie. There you go

    geelong 70.3 pros

    Talking to Dave early January, loved the experience in Shepp and though he felt he might be under done, happy to enter Geelong but not a team and sure enough his name is there. So it’s not Dave McKenzie.

    I lost the plot this morning

    Just read this thread and empathised with the whole, we' can be victims, at risk, you could have killed me you F$*@H%$ etc Far be it for me to be saying don’t be confrontational . BUT As I went out the door this morning for my long ride in crappy weather my wife said "be careful; the weather is bad" What does this have to do with the various rumbles, at risks, confrontations listed above and those we know about or are perhaps almost certainly yet to come ...... Well think about this, who is at home .... your wife, mother, a brother ... Are you going to walk out the door and before you leave say, I might not make it back today I hope you don’t mind ... Dramatic... maybe, but it is the 21st century and who knows how that next confrontation goes down! Maybe enjoy the success of a phone call to police. Just tooo many down sides to confrontation these days. So if this little soap box just makes one of us take a little more care of/for our selves out there that has to be a good thing. Try not to be a headline. "be careful; the weather is bad"
