For all the Stravanauts out there:

A colleague of mine in Grafton was at a loose end on Sunday morning, and strangely decided that this was a good idea ...






No, I can't think why either. But I have suggested that he creates a strava segment from it.

Interested to hear any thoughts? I'm sure it wouldn't make much of a difference to me + I use speed play :)

It looks like you might lose a bit of ground clearance if you fit them to your existing cranks.

@ Noel

Is it no good to unscrew now because of the glue? Have I ruined $50 cleats in an instant? Ouch! Haha

You can loosen them off a little. They will loosen over time though. I did the same with my first set of cleats. They were fine.

Can anyone recommend a good and reasonably priced timber floor polisher? Not a big job. Only need one room and a bit sanded and revarnished.

Agree with Tim re. Marrickville 2020 but we used a guy called Mark: 0414 293 018. He can't speak English well but he did a great job on the floors and was reasonably cheap.

The real story is in the infield. We're looking at a bunch of kids, distraught in the middle because some mean old blokes have turned up and taken their bikes. The guy in white is a plain clothes cop and he's gunna bust them all.

The white is a CNSW uniform.

Does it mean that height discrimination has been removed from midget racing?
