""You basically have to be a pro sprinter to justify a 53/39. I don't know anyone in SA that can spin out a 50x11 in @120rpm on the flat in a bunch kick."
Harley, a few weeks ago in the Scuzzi fast group I did at least one turn at…"
"Because you asked Harley, here's my opinion.
Did you ever think that some people have standard cranks because they agree with you that spinning is better. Spinning in a 34-11 or 50-25 is always going to be cross chaining so wouldn't it be…"
"That was a great day and an epic ride. Thank you to Adam for organising and everyone that helped with food and coffee.
I got into a good group through Gill, Heatherbank and Kensington with some Scuzzi fast group guys but lost them when waiting for…"

"A few mates and I did a similar ride back in April. Only three climbs though, Corkscrew/Montacute, Greenhill to Lofty and Freeway to Lofty. We did race each other up the climbs though.http://app.strava.com/activities/51086208#
I think we'll…"
"Tillys Hill Rd has some dangers though. I've only done it once on a mountain bike though. First of all Brownhill Creek usually flows over the ford so you have to ride or walk through 30cms deep water. Also there is a very agressive dog near the…"
"From what I remember of when the old freeway was the only freeway, it was chaos. Most of the traffic was doing 80-100 and in some corners you felt like the truck next to you was going to tip over. Traffic was very congested as well, more like South…"
"You do realise the three strikes policy refers only to the AFLs recreational drug testing that is in addition to the normal ASADA/WADA testing. If a player tests positive under the latter they are subject to the same sanctions as a cyclists."
"Using Schwalbe Ultremos and those Lifeline tubes is a recipe for lots of punctures. Ultremos are race tyres that are designed for speed not puncture resistance. Rubinos should last a lot longer. Lifeline tubes look to cheap to be trustworthy."
"It may be possible to get away without changing the chain length but even if you do it should only be about 2 or 3 links that you need to remove anyway.
Have you had a proper bike fit done, your knee pain could be eliminated. Changing to compacts…"
"Tim Duggan(Cannondale/US National Champion) on Greenhill Rd near Burnside Council Building heading towards the city at 5:45PM. Not sure about location it could also have been in Crafers but I definitely saw him on my ride today.
2 Argos Shimano guys…"
"All road brake calipers are designed for a left hand front brake setup. Having it the other way around increases the bend of the cables and therefore the friction between the inner and outer.
I have have mine right hand front anyway."
