  1. Hi all. Relatively new here. I'm looking for any first time turbo recommendations. Don't really have any preferences between fluid/mag/direct etc. Would welcome any recommendations/advice from users. Looking at a price limit of around $400-500 for a first time which probably puts the direct drives out of budget. Thanks guys
  2. Another big event coming to the Sunshine Coast next July. First Velothon event in the Southern Hemisphere https://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/news/breaking-coast-to-host-major-global-cycling-event/3118514/ http://velothonsunshinecoast.com/ One day and three day events - courses look great through the Hinterland and coastaline

  4. As triathletes we often get the mickey taken out or us from cyclists for a variety of reasons. The reliant on numbers, compression socks, jumping on every new bandwagon and on it goes. I've always thought fight fire with fire, and hit cycling back, and to be fair there is a good argument to suggest cycling and cheating are lifelong bedfellows. The nature of the sport of cycling lends itself to it. the person who saves the most watts wins and takes the glory at the last moment. Where as triathlon came out of a test to see who was the fittest. Sure we miss out on some of the bravery, tactics and all out efforts in cycling, but I've always ranked elite triathletes as having much higher moral ground than cyclists. Sure we all want to win, and there is drafting and doing in tris but it's not accepted and cyclists give the impression they would do ANYTHING to win, and that cheating is just part of the game. Here's an interesting blogpost on how cheating and cycling are so intertwined: http://medicalxpress.com/news/2014-05-if-cheating-is-normal-in.html All power to triathletes I say!

  6. So late last year a car swerved close to me and his passenger threw liquid over me out the window while TT-ing on beach rd. . I nearly came off and was a little shaken up. Got the number plate, reported it and kept... on.... hassling the cops about it. Long story short, (several months later) I get an email that says something other than "we're working on it" - It seems that the scummy driver gave up his scummy mate. $600 fine and a stern talking to. Obviously I'd prefer they both get put in the stocks... but happy that if you keep pushing, the system will eventually work. Not sure if it will make me report every instance of f-wittery that occurs, but pleased that (as with most things in life) being (superficially) polite and (very) persistent yields results.
  7. Have a couple of Corporate kits made by Champion systems that I would be keen to swap out for a medium size new kit size . The sizes I have are : - L Shorts and top (full kit) - XL Shorts only Worth a shot I say . note not bib brace type
  8. What are the new rules? Minimum passing distance for motorists From 7 April 2014, by law, motorists must stay wider of the rider by giving: • a minimum of 1 metre when passing cyclists in a 60km/h or less speed zone; and • 1.5 metres where the speed limit is over 60km/h. From this date motorists can cross centre lines (including double unbroken centre lines), straddle lane-lines and drive on painted islands to pass cyclists, provided the driver has a clear view of any approaching traffic and it is safe to do so. These new road rules will initially be trialled over two years. This law is the first of its kind in Australia and will road-test the impact the rules have on saving lives. But what if I can’t give a metre? The purpose of this new rule is to give some clarity around a distance most people already provide when passing cyclists. The aim is also to make drivers more aware of cyclists. On the road though, you may sometimes find yourself in a situation where you are unsure of what to do. Always apply common sense, obey the rules and remember: 1. Check your surroundings and the cars around you 2. If it is safe to do so, indicate and pass the cyclist at the minimum distance 3. If not, slow down and wait until it is safe to pass. Fines for cyclists Responsible cycling means following the road rules. To encourage safer behaviour on our roads, cyclists who break the road rules will pay the same fines as motorists. Fines will also be increased for rules that are specific to cyclists. Cyclists who follow the road rules will not be affected by these changes. How did these new rules come about? A Queensland Parliamentary committee inquiry was conducted to determine how to improve interactions between motorists and cyclists, and the safety of cyclists on the road.The inquiry received numerous submissions from cycling and motoring groups and members of the public and made 68 recommendations to improve cyclist safety. The Queensland Government has committed to review all the recommendations. While this happens, the new minimum passing distances and equal fines for cyclists (relating to recommendations 8, 9, 14 and 31) have been expedited. These changes will bring immediate improvements from 7 April 2014 to the safety of cyclists on Queensland roads. For more information on the rules and to view the committee’s recommendations, visit http://www.qld.gov.au/gettingalong
  9. This starts Wednesday. Four stages. The first is a short TT around the Burj Khalifa. Second a very flat Road stage around the suburbs of 'New Dubai' including the Marina and finishing on The Palm. Third is a longer stage finishing with a moderate climb up to Hatta near the Oman border and the final a flat street stage with laps along the Dubai Beach Road finishing at the Burj Khalifa. Full details http://dubaitour.com/index.php I will be heading out to get some pics of at least two stages including the TT and hopefully making it up to Hatta for the finish.
  10. A couple of weeks ago I was riding to work at 7.30AM on a normally very quiet backroad of Camden when a mercedes M class SUV with a very distinctive licence plate came flying past me. I was riding on the white line, the car made no attempt to give me any room the wing mirror missed my head by a couple of cm, the car didn't even notice I was there, I stuggled to control the bike as there was a gravel ditch on the left side.Ive been riding to work for over 15 years and have developed a pretty thick skin but even I was a bit shaken up. Anyway last night we were invited to a christmas party by some of the parents of the school my kids go to, as we pulled up into the driveway and what did I spot - The mercedes SUV!!! What do you do ? Ignore the near death experience, eat canapes drink wine and make small talk or politely point out to your host that she nearly killed you a couple of weeks ago I chose the latter and my wife has never been so embarrassed in her life and won't speak to me ? What would you have done? I know nearly all of you lot would of had a word but would anyone of bitten their lip and just smiled?

    Pretty nice video

    I have wind

    So does anyone else that went for a ride in Melbourne this morning. Great conditions, except of the massive wind gusts coming at you from all points of the compass. Nearly got blown into the guard rail on a descent. Glad I wasn't on Beach Road. How's conditions elsewhere in the country?

    Not Normal?

    Has anyone downloaded and read "Not Normal? An insight into doping and the 21 biggest riders from LeMond to Armstrong to Evans" ? http://www.joomag.com/magazine/alternativ-editions-not-normal/0269766001370594539 The book examines mountain rides and labels performances across an index of suspicion versus believability. They do this by estimating the power for each climb. I am wondering if it is a interesting read.
  14. Just bought a Power2max PM from the Aust/New Zealand distributor, cost under a grand took 4 days to be delivered (1/2 day and pretty easy to install) and I've been using it for a week now. The PM is excellent although I have only used it half a dozen times. I wanted to get crank based pm and only looked seriously at this one after the good review it got from DC Rainmaker. the guys at http://www.bikecycle.co.nz/ were fantastic, called them around 3 times checking various things out then emailed around 3/4 times etc no problems, really know thier stuff. Now I have the first loads of data in training peaks and reading Coggin's book to interpret it.....interesting stuff....makes you think about your riding. will post back after a couple of months on how it performs over time.
  15. Anybody else watch the Bike lane on cyclingtips? I quite enjoy it and really enjoy Scott McGrory's input for some experienced input and a balanced view without any ego, hopefully he sticks around in this commentary gig for a while. Strange for a cyclist! http://cyclingtips.c...ta-to-burritos/
  16. Hey guys and girls, Well I've bitten the bullet and booked in for surgery first week of may on my knee minor clean up to remove a chondral flap and inject Stem cells. Doc says other than the injury that cartridge and meniscus in my knee is fantastic. I have a trip booked to follow the last two weeks of the TDF. Which gives me about 9 weeks to recover. The doc thinks I will be sweet. But I wanted to know how long after you had a scope you were back on the bike and how long till you were back in full action. Clydesdale.
  17. Does anybody know whether there is a live tracker, or some way of following the Nationals that kick off today. The U23 Mens ITT is currently on, with both the Women's & the Elite Men's ITT later today.
  18. I need a CC guru to explain a few things... Is there a way to get an Elite Cycling Licence without joining a CC? As far as I can tell fFast (I'm from Brisbane) you can join to get the licence however it allows you the freedom to race whenever and where ever you want (provided the race isn't for other CC members only) ... is this right? I would like to start racing, but I want to continue to ride with my local tri club so the benefits of club rides wouldn't be much use to me and racing would be limited to 4-5 local crits races a year. One small thing I'm not sure about, how do I know what Grade I would be in if I were to enter a crit?

  20. Hi Guys and Girls, Ive searched what I can on the net and on the forum for info on this and have been struggling to find anything. So hopefully someone on here will be able to help. I'm off to the physio this afternoon as well. Went for my usual long ride on Sat 120km with hills. Been in full training since May so have been feeling really good. About 70km in I started to get a cramp like feeling/ sharp pain in the top of the middle of my left calf, on upward lift of the pedalling motion. I had no choice but to put up with it till I got home( out in the middle of no where) so continued for about 50km more. Had a little bit of trouble walking up stairs on the Sunday but the pain has pretty much disappeared over the past few days. I do plenty of Hammy and calf stretching. The only time I can replicate the issue is when i stand up and kick my leg from 90 degrees to straight. Hopefully someone has had this issue before and can give me some help as I cant find anything on it. I have the Gran Fondo in Lorne on the 16th so really want to get on top of it.
  21. Too many gadgets and time to lighten the load. Selling a Garmin Edge705. Comes with A/C charger, USB cable, Bike mount and manuals. $180 ono Can organise pickup Sydney or post at buyer expense.
  22. Roxxii mentioned the Frugal Rouleur website (http://frugalrouleur.com/) a while ago and I used it ever since for a quick check on prices across the different online stores. I've just noticed they now have an app as well so if you have an iPhone you can download it at http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/frugal-rouleur/id528241723?mt=8 PS: I have no affiliation with any of this stuff, this is just a public service announcement.
  23. $10 bucks if you have your Cycling Australia Gold license or $30 for a day license + $10 race entry. Who's in, what grade etc? Also the website says 3 laps, is that right? http://www.manlywarr...alaxy/#more-417 C grade for me - let's see if I manage to stay with the bunch till the end this time!
  24. Guys/girls, With the tri season now over and I'm well into recovery month. Been doing a bit of planning on how to improve my hill climbing. From now until November I'll do one long ride a week between 100 - 150km. Normally include a few 7-10km climbs with gradient of say 5% or so. For those in Melb , Kinglake, the 1 in 20 ect. I'm currently 105kgs and aim to get down to 95-99 ish. So that should help. Anyway to my question. Do you think I am better to train by doing these hill repeats several times or continue with my long rides as I have. I have seen great improvement in the last year eg. Kinglake time on strava went from 30min down to 24 I would like to get closer to 20 min if possible. I also want to complete the Amy's Gran Fondo in under 4 hours last year finished in 4:14. I'm working strength training into my program with legs included once a week. I still want to be able to ride the 150 plus km rides so maybe it will be a mix of them both. Any ideas would be appreciated.
