  2. IM Cairns 2017 Prelude: Originally planning to do Busselton in December but having found out we are expecting our first child in December (very close to Busselton race-day) I decided to change races, on relatively short notice (8 weeks). Preparation went well, I felt fresher the whole way through, for IMNZ the lead-in had practically been 5 years from when I first joined the sport to race-day. Throughout the 8 weeks I also kept intensity even lower than before (same mileage, mostly same sort of sessions) and did not have the summer heat to deal with which is fairly taxing on t

  3. I just bought the next model up from this. The one with Ultegra Di2 and Zipp 606. Beautiful bike and Canyon were excellent and simple to deal with. The only problem I have with the bike is that the recharging port on the junction box is a little hard to access inside the storage compartment. I think that you'd be hard pressed to get a better spec'ed bike for that money than a Canyon.....

  4. Be interesting to see what others think, but IMO, you're going to find very little difference in performance between say a $3K Cervelo P2 and a $10K Cervelo P5, similarly you'll find very little difference between a $3k disc and a $700 Renn disc. I base that on what I've experienced and observed with mates, other competitors and also what I've read. Plenty of people start off with a budget TT bike, jump to a much more expensive model and see very little, often negligible gains. So don't get caught into thinking you need to spend big.

  5. Thank God Tony axed that Carbon Tax. My electricity prices have been dropping ever since that visionary move.

  6. Now you're just showing off What do you reckon about the wheels that come with the 4 grand Canyon, are they comparable to Caden ones that cost $1,600?

  8. 10:28:56 for me and my 11th Ironman finish (3rd one in Cairns). Not my best but am really stoked with the results given how much training I have done. One more step closer to legacy! Race report in the reports thread if anyone is interested. Well done to all those who raced!

  11. Malcolm Turnbull is an idiot full stop. And if I was Trump, I'd be straight on the phone to Turnbull.........and I'd squeeze his balls like nothing else during the conversation. And then say.....you know that little agreement we had etc etc....... We'll you can piss off....it will never happen! Lol

  12. After the deals I saw from Shimano at Port this year, I don't I will ever buy wheels elsewhere again.

  14. Not during a cycling show. Times when up late to watch and wanting to watch 30-60 mins, craps me off wasting 15-20 mins on the starting pre-amble and the cooking stuff. Want to watch cooking at that time, I say tape Masterchef and play it back just before the tour starts if so inclined.

  17. I often wondered how long her career would have last. She was type cast as the token 'funny fat chick' in nearly every role. I reckon she got lucky with what ever she wins.....but having said that I hope the tabloids have to pay big time. About time they are made accountable for the lies and dribble they produce. And who buys that rubbish anyway?

  19. Again following on from my post above I bought new 404s for my canyon as it came with "training wheels" i now train completely on the 404s and have a choice of 404 thubbies , 404 clinchers , 303 clinchers (Hawaii UM) and a Caden disk set and a 404 zipp 900 disk set all for racing if I'm feeling a bit low and not motivated I'll wack the disk set on amd head out for a cruise or a full on smash feast why spend money on good wheels and not use em they are arwsome to ride

  21. I went to Stewart Morton in melbourne (riderfit as mentioned by Naut), the best $450.00 I've spent on my bike. I had a fit done on my roadie and will go back and get one done on my TT before next season.

  22. Every bike shop has an "expert fitter" they have completed a 2 day course & have a shinny certificate on the wall. My LBS would drop comments like "we can get you on that bike" "lets just put a bigger stem on it" Before I order my next TT rig I will be getting Frame & component fitting done by an independant bike fitter. Then ordering a bike that fits me. Dropping $300/$500 is better than dropping $1500 on new race wheels.

  24. Actually FB, I was having a go at Trump. The Post Office worker was possibly an immigrant, but certainly not from the Middle East, and the shooter at the baseball game targeting politicians was a retired Illinois person. The airforce base incident was actually a training exercise, and a false alarm.

  26. I use them all the time. Just make sure you read the cancellation conditions. All the properties have different policies.

  27. I've actually found them to be good, I book through them all the time. I even got a full refund for a place that had been advertised incorrectly as a 2 bedroom apartment (it was only one bedroom plus a bed in the living room) - and that place was subsequently dumped from their listings. Never been charged an overseas transaction fee either.

  28. Exactly the same for me - wife is a genius at this stuff. We always get the CBA foreign currency card and load it up with USD before we go, saves a lot on fees etc.

  30. RIP Nick..........like others I have fond memories of Yeppoon and Canberra. Nick loved the sport and this was certainly reflected in the events he organized. I'll never forget how every year he would tell us at race brief how the Yeppoon swim is always with the current and guaranteed to be super fast........argh- this was rarely the case !!! I have retired from racing Tri's and will always treasure memories from the races I did with Nick.
