Re: Free Stuff

I'll take the Pair of near-new Schwalbe Marathon Supreme tyres, 650b x 40 / 27.5 x 1.75, with reflective sidewalls. Great commuting tyre if you are commuting on a mountain bike. Barely used.
Thanks

Sony AS20 action camera with K-edge bike mount

Decent 1080p HD action camera, small & light. Comes with a waterproof case that mounts to an aluminium k-edge bar mount, works very well as a handlebar camera for stills or video. Has wifi and can be controlled by a phone. Requires a micro-SD card. Has been used a fair bit but excellent condition. $50

Re: turbo recommendations

I have elite arion digital rollers, they have cheaper models with variable resistance units too. I like them a lot compared to a turbo, though you can't stand up, it is a more natural feel and it's easier to just put the bike on and start. You don't need to clamp the wheel and they don't chew up you...

Roof carriers are the way to do it, just find a way to make sure you remember to take them off before driving under low roofs. Definitely avoid anything that pinches the top tube on a carbon bike as it will break it. Also make sure your wheels are clear of your hot exhaust if mounting it on the back...
