Seems no need to spend 1/2 hour reading the article as you guys/gals have done it for me

Dual lights also give you more size, you look more like an object rather than a single point of light

Re: Water in my fixie

A long time ago when waist hugging white jeans were in fashion there use to be a small hole under the bottom bracket for it to drain out. As you have probably tried all the obvious solutions, I'm going to guess that the best option would be to create a hole in the frame to allow the water to run out...

Re: Which torque wrench - 1/2 or 3/8 inch?

The amount of torque applied is not going to be a consideration so you don't need to worry about the head size unless you want it to be the same as your existing socket set. The torque range should go as low as 4nm My set is 1/4" and to be honest I had to go and look at it to know that, the hea...

You need to buy one that's specific to cycling. The ones at bunnings etc don't have the precision to work with CF

Unfortunately some will not see you unless there is a need to be seen. The brain is designed to see what you need (aka the hunter and gatherer) and see what will kill you, aka the lion, which nowadays is a 1,000Kg+ metal object heading towards you.

Re: Time Trialling 2015

There was a communication that confused a few and they have since put out a clearer communication. Entries are allowed on the day, if you want to reserve a time slot, you need to pre-enter.

There are 18 pre-entries for tomorrow. Somehow I suspect there won't be a huge queue tomorrow.

The temp was 38deg and we ran out of water with a long way to go, so it was a ride of survival rather than performance.

As a climb its a great climb. Yes there is traffic but it didn't bother me
