For rides other than commutes, (e.g. early morning hills rides, or weekend racing or training rides) I alternate between two carbon fibre bikes:

* A 2006 Specialized Roubaix Pro, with Dura-Ace running gear.

* A 2010 Cannondale Synapse 3 with Ultegra running gear

Hey Shane, im waiting to hear back from someone re a ride for this Sunday, and was thinking that if that fell through - i could make a debut appearance with your crew...if that was still an option! ...will you be heading out this Sunday?
At 11:26 on April 27, 2011, Sam said…
Sounds great!! I will come along this Sunday (i will be away the following weekend). Re insurance, while i am not a Bicycle SA member, I do have a Cycling Aust Licence, which includes insurance...hope this is sufficient! ;-)

Hi Shane, thanks for adding the post 'what's your excuse for not cycling' to Stumbleupon. I was doing some digging about and looking at the site analytics and that post had a lot of traffic. I dug some more and found the traffic had come from Stumbleupon. I also added the site to Stumble because I know how it can help searchability.

Cheers
Angus

Hi Shane, sorry, not sure what coffee shop we will hit when we get there, guess it will depend on who wants to go where, and how many people are already at the coffee shops!

When I head through this way, it is normally on one of my Victor return rides, & I only really stop at Victor on these for a quick bite before heading home again.
