Bike stuff / fitting questions

Posted: 05/01/2017 at 21:15

I use ones added to a properly fitted road bike. In normal road position, it is less than perfect on the aerobars. However, by fitting a dual purpose saddle (one with softy stuff on the bit at the front that goes between NQB and NQA), I can move forward about 4-5 inches and get a decent aero position with right angles in the right places (elbows, shoulders) which enables me to turn one gear higher for the same effort. Still get a sore arse after about half an hour but it does work.

What should my pirate name be?

Hello Tanglefoot.

I have a Tanglefoot guitar, er, hang on, no, that's a Tanglewood.

What should my pirate name be?

Bloody obvious really. Llanfairpwchgwyngychgogerechwyndrobychllantisilio gogogibbon. Would also have the honour of the longest Pirate name.

Welcome LL Monkeynuts. Actually, that's just as good. LOL.

Neither I or the Deepcut Cafe can take the blame for you needing a cargo plane to get home! ;O). Well, maybe the Deepcut cafe then...

Where is Cairns?

FWIW, IMO, nobody embodies the spirit of the Pirates more than Barlos. He offered to throw his Outlaw finish and stay with me when I went down 15 miles into the mara. Because "don't worry about it, I did Florida last week".

No, he's not 4 stone 3lbs and he likes a pie and a pint, but his experience at this distance is not to be ignored.

Yeah, train for your age, weight, size, strength etc, but also, learn from the ones who have done it time and again.

Good luck Woody, watch out for the Taffs, if you are English and slow, they will try to set fire to you. ;O)


Anaphylactic shock whilst exercising

Well, if you can find the trigger for my cold urticaria and angiodema, there is a cheque in the post for you! I haven't been able to find it. But an interesting piece of information nonetheless from my point of view. Cheers.

2016 PSOF Golf Umbrellas

Posted: 10/06/2016 at 00:24

I have a pair, they are great for golf. Which is a curse of getting old. I mean, who in their right mind actually gets off on golf? Shite game, gets you fit my arse, suitable for fat rich people.

But Pirate umbrellas attract wasps and bees and all other sorts of flying things with stings which really annoy your opponents and irritate the Farah Slack fitted snotty jobsworth dress code jockeys.

Buy one. Or two.


2017 season...

Cheers all. The Thorpe ones are just down the road from me and it is my fave lake.

2017 season...

Well, seeing as I am banned from the big stuff, I might try an Oly. Any recommendations in the summer (ie June, July or August), in the South-ish, preferably not Windsor and preferably not a sea swim.
