  • Caveat! Some and i note SOME can get away with grinding. However you need to have a fecking spot on position and change the gear ratio. I "bimble" on a 75 cadance. however that is pushing a 55/11 ratio. Only due to his fancy bike fitting has a ce…

  • Sorry barge back into this thread. Quick question for FB and O5. Why are you saying cross bikes can not take the "rough" stuff?  Think what your original MTB looked like Pre-suspension! Im not after biff, just curious to your stance on it. I go…

  • o 4 - 6 reps first time out and build up to 8 - 10 reps. Builds speed and is ideal prep for 10 - 50m TTs. Cheating git   10 mile TTs just learn to hurt. 25 miles hurt a bit less but for longer, 50 miles same as 25 but with a drink!
  • When you have been twatted by a car, get back up and carry on racing that is when yuou know you are a nut job cyclist
  • Sprint tri. You need to work on your speed and the resulting run after(the brick) Miles on bikes is always good. No substituite for this but never get lazy and let the bike freewheel. Work hard on the bike, keep that HR up! Given your doing a sprin…

  • never knowingly be undersold! So many combos, no one will ever cover ever distance/event etc. Never say never, see an event, like it, do it. Find out how to swim i will crack the IM thingy. The cycle and run are a bit of piss.
  • No one mentioned the salerys of the union bosses! United front, LOL! greddy like the MPs.
  • Oh and if you have got to stop to "sort out" then do it. A minute solving a problemis better than 15 minutes slower as the problem is annoying you. Good luck and enjoy.
