  1. Bought two polygon mountain bikes this year from them. Definitely good value for money. Had to buy one bike on pre order and it turned up 10 days early. Would recommend them.

    RPM bikes

    I have a concept2 bike erg, which the whole family uses. It’s little bit more than what he wants to spend at $1800 but has power and the ability to connect to zwift, rouevy etc
  3. Don’t know if you can still get them but there used be clip-ons that attached to the head stem.

    Wurf watch

    Probably because individual pursuit hasn’t been Olympic event since 2008.
  5. Don’t know what the course is like but I read somewhere there 4500 starters. Even split in half that’s still a lot a people.
  6. There is nothing that opens early enough in Canberra for you to have a swim and be back at O’Connor by 6am

    Actually the lake BG is not fine. It has been closed for blue-green algae and next weeks duathlon has been moved to Lake Ginenderra.
  9. Spot Anderson - BondiFit has quite a lot of swim squads at Prince Alfred Pool.
  10. My advice Is don’t. I ran them for a couple of years until I got sick of the mucking about. You need a lot of pressure to mount them, have to use Co2 or air compressor.

If you run the liquid sealant to fix flats when riding then it gets very messy when you need to change the tyre. Also if you get a big hole out riding, then you need to put a tube in and that is a real pain. However they do have a great feel great to ri
  11. Serious question, what is so poor about it. If you go back about 6-7 years on here you'll find it was one of the best 1/2 IMs. Did the others get better or did its standards slip. I haven't done a 1/2 for along time so I'm interested in what's changed.

    Chlorine nose

    Yurtie A nose clip is the way to go. A couple of years I stopped swimming for 4 months & when I started back, I had blocked noses and started snoring at night as well (wife was not happy). I then used a nose clip and the problem went away. Even better a year or so later I stopped swimming again for a few months and when I started swimming again I was able to ditch the nose clip. I still have the occasional bout of the sneezes after swimming but not the same level of problem. pete
