  1. Hi guys, I've recently bought this bike : http://www.merida-bikes.pt/arquivo-16/road/road-triatlon/warp-tri/warp-tri-3000 and would to get some help with the issue I mentioned in the title. Is there anyway I can fit any kind of nutrition bag behind the stem? It has that blue triangle that stops me from using my current PRO bag. I saw some people that ride with them in top tube but near the seat post, but at least my PRO doesn't fit there, since I touch it with my inner legs if it's there, making it very uncomfortable to ride. Thanks!
  2. I've never tried feeding during a swim before. I don't even put a water bottle at the end of my lane when I swim. The most I'd do is have a thermos of tea for when I get out. I'm planning on doing a 10km swim in a few weeks, and I was just wondering what people use for nutrition in a 3hr swim, or whether it's actually worthwhile? It's 3 laps, so I'll have feed opportunities at about 1 & 2 hours. Thanks

  4. So for the folks who travel overseas for a race, how do you take your nutrition with you on the travel? Do you buy new containers of what you plan to use for the race and then pack it so you can show it to customs where you land? Seems a waste if you take it and only use what you need for the race then throw it out over there. I want to take my preferred nutrition (UCAN and some polyjoule) for an IM but don't fancy taking zip lock bags of white powder into Kuala Lumpur airport!
  5. So I've been hearing about this "healthy" oil alternative for a little while now. Do you guys use it? Is it really that much better for your health and if so, why? Can I basically use it in place of my good old trusted olive oil or is it supposed to replace some specific oils. We have a jar of it here which I find really odd so never touched it. Why wouldn't they put it in a typical "oil" bottle? Cheers, Rog
  6. Do people use the to load pre-race? It's been suggested to me that this may be helpful with salt loss during long course events, however, I've never suffered from cramping.
  7. If I were a Paleolithic caveman, I swear to my stone age gods that I would be the first one to pound wheat into flour and make bread and that I would surely find a way to milk a wooly mammoth. My body adores bread and milk. It's so trendy no to be allergic to wheat and dairy. Buggered if I know why people are lining up for that fresh hell. Otherwise, I kinda like it. Get to eat lots of quality stuff I love.
  8. G'day guys, I'm going to be experimenting over the next few months in trying to come up with a nutrition plan for Melbourne. As part of that plan, I'm hoping to come up with a decent brew which will I'll trial because even though I'm a fan of the simplicity in using the on-course stuff, I just don't want to try and stomach a thousand gels with the gelling agents etc. So here's a few criteria for my needs: - Ideally will fit in one bottle (591ml/20oz) - Will have enough calories for ~5hrs (~1750) - Will have enough electrolytes for ~5hrs - Be palatable. Will try using either Nuun tabs or a fruit juice for flavour.. more to come there! I haven't tried it yet, but the first real brew I'll try and knock up will be: 15 scoops of CarboPro, 20 SaltStick Caps, 6oz Pineapple juice + water to top it up. Should give something like this: I'd be interested in seeing if anyone else has any tips/tricks/secret recipes they'd share
  9. Up for sale is my very lightly used set of powertap training wheels. Wheels are: Rear: Cycleops SL+ 32h rear powertap hub laced with comp spokes to a dt rr4** rim, black spokes and rim front: cycleops front hub (has cool carbon cutouts and matches the rear.....mmmmmm symmetry) 32h laced to a mavic open pro rim 32h, black spokes and rim. Wheels have done at most 1000km. Selling them as i don't really like using power (call me not a triathlete), and i owe money to the man. Wheels will come with pair of very good condition Schwalbe ultremo DD tyres and a Dura-Ace 12-23 Cassette, (or a campag freehub body with no cassette if you are awesome and like campag). Wheels are true and round and have been owned by a bike mechanic (a proper one, not a "i work on my own bikes and therefore i am a mechanic" mechanic). Looking for around $1100 ONO. (including post) BUY THEM.
  10. I've seen threads on here about what nutrition strategies people adopt. What I'm wondering is - how do you work it out? How do you start? What are the generally accepted options? At the moment, I'm rocking up to long rides with a muesli bar and water. Apparently that doesn't cut it! Edit (to clarify the question...) : Let's say I sign up for Forster ultimate which is in October. When do I need to start working on my race nutrition strategy? And how do I go about it etc etc
