I like the idea of the tar'n'dirt ride.

My "city bike" has 28c tyres on it, and 32s should just squeeze in if they're not too knobbly.
What type of tyres would you recommend for this?

Re: DHBC omnium Calender 2011!!!!

Sounds great. Considering I like steel frames, low ratios and longer races, I'm pretty happy with the sound of that.
Also looking forward to getting back to the track next week.

Re: Omnium next Saturday night!! 11/12/2010

That was a great night. Thanks to all the organisers, and providers of bbq/salad/beers.
I was surprised the turnout was a bit small, but it was a perfect time to learn how to race at least.

Thanks to Hugo for the madison lessons too. Those juniors are quick!

Re: Omnium next Saturday night!! 11/12/2010

I'm keen. Sounds like a good chance for me to get on the track and have a race.

Nothing like racing against a bunch of state medal winners to remind you how far off the pace you are...

Did that happen to you? Did you eat bitumen?
I've never liked the look of those welded stems, now I have a reason to avoid them...

Re: Skinsuits and Knicks

Having looked through the above, I think I'm between a small and a medium, so I'll take a punt on a medium, and if it's too big I'll just have to start on those protein shake things. I assume we can pay cash at the track? Knicks small - Miguel x 2 medium - Mark H x1, Mark L x1 large - mikesbytes x 2...

Re: Skinsuits and Knicks


Are these the ones?

They don't have a sizing chart for the skinsuits, but they recommend you go by the shorts size:

Re: Who wants to challenge our tempe half hour record?

pending another 3 months of training, some new shoes, and maybe some extra lycra - I'll give it a shot.

Re: -Tempetation- 2010 Coastal is coming!!!!! Fixed Century*

Looks like I've joined the club a few weeks too late.

I'm not quite organised in time for the ride this year, but count me in for 2011!
