  1. After 10 years, 3 frames with same Ultegra group set (lasted 120,000k).. and being a tight wad, sold my HZ 78 Kingswood and put some of it towards this GiantTCR about a year ago.. totally in love with it, super comfy, love the disc brakes.. I just need to ride it a bit more.. hot and cold last few months.. My Nuske single speed, great for the shops and off for a swim. Azzuri TT race bike.. still goes well, now with Zipp 404s ex Steno..Heds ex ol mate OZhed dude..

I was looking for a photo of my on the Europa (speedos and singlet) racing at Kurnell but could not find one B U T.. found this photo of how not to wear an Aero helmet. with mr Flanman.. Not raced for a few years now as was kinda over it esp after a decent PB and IM in Cairns 2 weeks a
