Re: Sidi v Shimano Shoe Sizing

If you come to the track tonight you could probably try on a few people's sidi's. I'll pack my 44's in if you want to try them. Something like Sidi's I would really recommend trying and buying locally though. I know there is a massive price difference but it's good peace of mind.

Cheap Nespresso's.

It says the deal has finished, but it looks like it's still available for some reason. $129 after cash back. Won't endear you to coffee snobs, but at 5am each day it's quite handy. http://static.petersofkensington.com.au/images/banners/Banner_DD57_H.jpg http://www.petersofkensington.com.au/Public/Vi...

You could always do Coluzzi at 6:15, their 'slow' group leaves then. You'll be fine for pace, and the smaller group obeys the road rules.

Glad they got a 3 year sponsor, but it would have been nice if they were sponsored by someone wholesome like a florist or a pet shop. I guess you can't have it nice all the time. When are Bernard going to go Pro Continental?

I was thinking gear limits might make for more fun racing - like 80" or 85" or 90" or something. So winning races will rely more on tactics. But I'll leave that decision to the higher powers... We already have an 81" omnium so it would be my (unbiased) opinion to let it ride. Fo...
