  1. Hi All. I'm moving into an apartment (not yay) and looking to reduce/minimise noise from my trainer. I have a tacx satori smart trainer, with trainer specific wheel. I was wondering if anyone had any mat/material/noise minimising recommendations to ensure my neighbours are not interrupted. Cheers

  2. Hi all. Due to time and location constraints I'm forced to do all my session's solo. I'm just trying to get some tips on how to stay accountable particularly during the hard or long sessions, and was wondering if anyone has any pieces of advice for the completely solo grind. Thanks

  3. Hi all,

    I recently purchased a second-hand trek speed series concept 7 second hand XS size which has 650 wheels. When I brought it the previous owner stated "Trek only produce XS Frame with 650 wheels otherwise impossible to produce correct geoemetry," which I'm not discounting, however I'm 167cm tall F, so pretty average height, was wondering if it would be possible to to put 700 rims and tyres on at all, or would that put me at too much risk of toe-overlap what not. Just wondering if anyone's had any experience or what not.


  4. Just happened to me (literally just got the replacement unit from Garmin this AM-it did take a turnaround of roughly 3 weeks). Died randomly 1 week before Geelong after having it for 18 months (also purchased from pushy's who couldn't do anything). Will hopefully get at least another 18 months out of this watch before upgrading to a different one. I've been happy with the service from Garmin.

    Are you in Frankston or Mornington?  If Morno you would never need to ride on that road because you would always head south 😂 but from Frankston you do have fewer options. I've just moved from Morno to Frankston South and initially I was trying to avoid nepean highway too, but it's actually fine. There's a good bike lane and lots of other cyclists.

    Coming back to Frankston from the south I sometimes go Derril Rd and then up Two Bays and down Humphreys for a bit of a change. Or turn at Mt Eliza Way and follow that through until it rejoins the highway, but that has a couple of traffic lights and pedestrian crossings so best in the early morning.

    Happy to join you for some rides and show you around if you like :-)

    Thanks for the tips! I'm in Frankston, and yes saw plenty of cyclists out this morning on the Nepean :). I'll have to do a bit of exploring!


  6. Hey guys. Just moved down to the Frankston/Mornington area and am keen to get out on the bike. I've had a look at the Nepean between Frankston/Mornington but am not too keen on that. Looking for some pretty quiet route recommendations (where I'm from I usually just ride on very, very quiet roads where only people who live on them drive typically). Any recommendations/routes/groups would be appreciated. Cheers!

  7. 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
