  1. Really? I was under the misapprehension that Noosa was a tourist destination, so booked out accommodation and cafe / restaurants was desirable. Notwithstanding there are some serious international / interstate $$$ tied up waterfront properties there, the people that provide the services need new jobs of tourists don’t come?

    If zero flats is key, you could try these: http://www.tannus.com.au/products/aither1-1/
  3. Because of my below par parenting skills, there are regularly times that I feel (an often unmet) need to get some time away from my little guys...
  4. And before someone a suggests “get up earlier”, that doesn’t help when the little guys are up from 5:xx...
  5. I must be anti-social - I looked forward to the time on my own. My spouse, however, did not look forward to the same time flying solo with little guys...
  6. At uni I managed a 38min 10km after taking care of a 6-pack of XXXX... Think I ate some leftover pizza to go with it.
  7. Sounds like it was a pain in the a$$
  8. I once went for a drink in this place where the ladies were very talented at using poles...

    Worn rims

    So for those keen on saving a $, would it be cheaper in the long run to replace worn discs (easily enough done - have done this for a mtb on commuting duty), rather than replace rim-braking wheels when the rims are cactus (presumably uneconomic to rebuild the wheel to keep the spokes and hubs?)? That is, maybe there’s a business case for disc brakes?
  10. If I’m not mistaken, Shortis was a professional? (ie in his case, isn’t time spent training the equivalent of doing a 9 to 5?)
  11. Pat Rafter and Newk halo effect back when we were doing well at Davis Cup 😉
  12. But the reason the drop shot serve works for him is: (a) his typical 1st serve is north or 190km/h which pushes some returners (eg Thiem) metres behind the baseline (ie if they were doing an Andre Agassi and striking the return inside the baseline, they would comfortably reach it) (b) he disguises it really well Tactically not really that different to a ~150km/h slider out wide
  13. “And by the way, I’m going to need some ‘quality sleep’ to recover properly afterwards to be ready for my 1 hour recovery ride and 2.5 hour long run tomorrow, so you’ll need to get up to the little guys during the night”.
  14. I’ll make the observation that some pundits may not appreciate just how accommodating their spouse is (eg “Bye [insert affectionate name for spouse]. I’m off for my 6 hour long ride, with 1 hour run tagged on. Have fun with [insert 5 year old name, 3 year old name and 1 year old name, who have been waking up during the night and are awake from 5:XX am]!”)...
