Re: Carbon 5.5 Trek Madone FOR SALE

For $6000, she could have bought her a 0.5-0.75 carot basic quality Tiffany rock. I'd bet the result would have been different, and wouldn't be sold come a break-up. Stupid guy! :mrgreen:

Re: Where are the Police when you need them!!

Great to hear that the police is doing a good job in looking after all road users! So did you also stop to give statement and ensure a ticket is issued?

...peroneal paresthesia sounds like a "numb bum", or pins and needles down there. ... So it is probably more accurate to say that cycling defers, prevents, and potentially can reverse erectile disfunction symptoms. No patient will come in complaining of peroneal paresthesia/paresis. Hence...

Chain efficency

Are you sure? Time to review innervation of the appendage and related functional structures.

Headache is a symptom and peroneal paresthesia is a diagnosis. The analogy is inappropriate.

Re: Chain efficency

One can't be too categorical based on just one study, whether flawed or not. Fact is, Perioneal paresthesia is a real entity in the cycling community and is directly linked to the activity.

The "Inventors" program is hardly a science program. It's full of hype on one's "investions" with many dubious claims. So don't take it too seriously.

Re: Choosing the right frame

There are lots of CF frames that's good enough for Pros to race on. Which is best for you will depend on how you feel. Otherwise wheels will make a huge difference to the ride and you may want to start looking there.

Re: Ken Dinnerville 29 May Race - Entries open 7th March

Last year two local boys made a break from the 2nd/3rd(?) bunch on lap 2 in a futile attempt to stay off the mega bunch. They clearly didn't have enough in numbers and was too late. Shouldn't have hung around the slower rider for so long.

Re: Ken Dinnerville 29 May Race - Entries open 7th March

That hill is comparable to Lilyfield hill (going towards the city near Leichhardt Oval) in terms of grade but longer. And adding the pace the combined bunch will hit it (especially on the 2nd and 3rd lap). It'll cause major damage. So it's desirable to get to the front before the bottom of the hill....

Hands on bar, bum on saddle and legs spin cranks/chain/wheel, all without power assistance. Sounds good to me! And what does this thread has to do with For Sale sub-forum?

Undoubtedly the best route is through Concord (Lyons Rd West), Five Dock (Barnstaple Rd), Bay Run shared path, Lilyfield Rd, Annandale, Sydney Uni entry via Missenden Rd or Ross St.
