I haven't read anything yet but I know I can say before I even do, "thank you. You are all awesome" Will read asap! ! I had a perfect race. More details to come. Xxxxxx [emoji13] [emoji322] [emoj

My girls made me cry this morning (seems to be a thing of late). They all nearly bowled me over as I arrived to school and gave me a huge hug. One bought me flowers, many made me cards, they decorated

Shit. So. Many. Mounting. Options.

 

16 pages on the mounting thread. 73 pages for corky mounting something :o

Between what brett and roxii have given cranky that need correct mounting, im scared to look!

[emoji38]I was starting to wonder why we hadn't had a million questions on mounting Ayups

Give it time ...

Just wait til she asks how to mount bike on transition rack.

Seat. THAT, I have sorted

Zip ties [emoji106]

Hey cranky, do you have a race number mounting tag? This one is a Kona special edition!

Are you taking the p!ss?

 

They are sticky and go around the seat post. What's the point of this?

Not in Kona

And when ironman was the race to do in oz you also got your own plastic number

That was one of the things that made IM special, and a different race from all the others to do

Not so anymore

Shame really

 

Maybe they will have to go back to giving a bit more and not just take take take to get the numbers of athletes back growing not going backwards

Last week I ordered one of these. When ever I try and put my number on my aero seat post, it misaligns, creases, looks terrible and there is a lot of swearing involved. I am hoping that the tag will make it much easier and quicker. Should also make it easier to remove the number at the end of the race.

Was a pain trying to find a way to fit those to a Softride.

even when we had those they got thinner and cheaper each year, should do a thread on disappearing race swag, as in what we had way back when and what we lost each year.

 

loss of swag was proportionally inverse to race entry increase, go figure.

Looks like the torpedo mount is fully mounted infront of the arm rests??

 

I'd be moving it as far back as possible. Looks like you have heaps of room there to move it back, with two velcro tabs on the rider side of the arm rests. Closer to the stem also means less impact on handling.

If you're after something small & light to keep a tube, levers & a $5 together under your seat or in an unused bidon, I use one of the little protective bags for sunglasses. They are the right size, have a drawstring to close it, and stops things rattling in the bidon.

Same here Ex. Depending on the saddle and seat post you can sometimes fit it between the two which is nice and tidy.

Yeh, a tube & 2 levers in one of those bags actually fits between the saddle's rails so it's tucked away as good as it can get.

That is the said Neoprene pencil case velcro strapped to the seat post of my bike.

Initially I was going to say.....[emoji53][emoji53][emoji53] that's my bike...yes...yes it is an Aluminum Giant....LOL [emoji3]

Either answer will suffice

Thanks

At least you had the decency not not show the giant lol

Cheers
