  4. 75.6kgs for me. Happy with that.
  5. 77.6kgs for me. Thanks.
  6. No change... 80.1 for me.
  7. The kebab i just finished. I can't work out why I get the odd craving for them. I can't remember ever actually enjoying one. Not a good way to start the biggest loser either.
  8. Starting at 80.1kgs. Stillman average is 78.8 with 66.9 for a distance runner. Can't see that hapeening so am aiming for about 74 or 75.
  9. Me too please. Had my body fat taken the other day and it was in the "poor" category when everything else such as fitness and blood pressure were above average. I am going to have a good look at my diet and want to see the results. Thanks Plazbot.

  13. A couple of questions from a biking newbie. Well about to be newbie (this will be my first road bike). First does any one have any opinion on Argon 18's? Particularly the Gallium S3? Second, the deal I am getting seems great but I am down grading the gear set and wheels. As a newbie I am not sure if I should be spending the money on better components or better frame. Last what is the price difference between 105/Ultegra/Dura ace? Is the performance difference noticeable or is it mainly a weight thing?
