Tell us about your bikes
Couple of roadies - one as commuter, one for the weekends. 15 year old MTB that's almost as good as new, and a CX that lives in NZ as I'm over there for work regularly.
About Me:
Lucky enough to work for a company that once sponsored a pro conti team and am involved in working with them. Gotta use a pseudonym 'round here because of my employer's social media policy.
Hate being called a "lycra lout" or anything that refers to my preferred riding clothing; nothing about me changes because of what I wear.
Can't resist parodying any reference to a song posted here so I apologise in advance.
Only take some of what I post seriously, hopefully you can work out which bits I mean!

Do many of the New Zealanders of Welsh origin living in Sydney like listening to Danish folk tunes with banjo backing?

Yes, that's one of the major strengths of SC, there is a whole lot of info here, and from everything from Chic to MAMIL rides, advocacy from Harbourlink to -H-words and much  more.

RE: the changing the free hub, if I do proceed (there are other things high up the to do list atm) - it will likely happen about end of March.

On that Ergon site, they have something that looks a bit like a large bum bag.....would that be OK?  I don't like wearing back packs when I ride, it makes my back perspire.

 

I have been thinking about it, I think I can put a bag on the cross bar of the bike - like the ones the triathletes put there glucose snacks in.  I am working on it.  I think I will throw these bum bags away.  As you said they are so "yesterday".

If you see me struggling up KPR, you'll know it's me by the pink water bottles, not just the white shoes and Ti pedals.  However, if I see a guy struggling up KPR wearing a backpack, I don't want to say "Hey are you SUS?"..................

Interesting, I wonder what 7.1 richter and 2.2g really means in comparision to the prevailing standards.

I guess the fellow is saying the standards are intended to give a good chance of resisting.

 

The prediction part is also interesting.

 

I'm being told that stone w/o mortar does well, brick does badly UNLESS tied to a frame. The bricks must be tied to the frame tho, not merely the mortar as is done in Oz.

Thanks mate. 

Cool vids, guessed that sheep could train a rabbit to do what they want, but a car, extraordinary.
