"Well definitely one positive with the cycling community is the willingness to look out for each other more than other sections of the community. I blew a tube on the way home from work last night, no big deal but had about 5 cyclists pass, all at…"

"Yes, it really depends on how often you see other cyclists.  In the city you'd spend all your time waving. Also, 15 years ago you'd acknowledge other cyclists as a fellow deviant even in the city. (We were usually old and had beards.)…"

"I certainly do offer a wave/nod/hi this when I'm up in the hills, but not when I'm on a busy bike route down near the city. Perhaps I should do this less, so that I don't use them all up before I get to 50 years old ;-)"

Acknowledging other riders

I moved from perth a number of years ago and the majority of riders acknowledge each other with a gday,wave or a simple nod of the head.Here in Adelaide i bery rarely get any response from fellow riders to the extent where its almost fround upon and older riders are the worst.Im 53 and really cant understand this.A few weeks ago I went for a ride in the barossa and i saw 2 other riders and they both waved and said gday.Come on Adelaide cyclists lets staet acknowledging each other in our…See More

"my 2 cents. Don't buy second hand. I recently bought a pair of DA C24s to replace a pair of mavic ksyrium elites. No comparison. C24s smoother, lighter and a pretty good all rounder if you're riding all the Adelaide traps like…"

"Personally, I would never buy second hand wheels. Wheels take more punishment than any other part of a bike. Even if they have only ever been used by a little old lady to ride to the shops, she may have hit a pothole, causing weakness near a spoke…"

"Ive been riding zondas since 2014. Great all rounder wheels. much faster than the standard wheels that came with the bike and strong enough to handle the punishment I give them."

Norm replied to craig leech's discussion Wheels
"Yes the Ksyriums, especially the rear wheel, just ask me I have a few good front wheels, are prone to breaking a spoke, once that happens it is next to impossible to get a replacement spoke and mavic want to change out all spokes and hub. :-( ergo…"

Bill Louca replied to craig leech's discussion Wheels
"i think the 2014 zondas would be the obvious choice ,2006 euros would not be 11 spd compatible and the ksyriums were prone to spoke and rim failure ,i.e. spoke heads pulling out of rim hope this helps regards BILL LOUCA   "
