Turbo

Posted: 19/10/2014 at 21:46

I have a turbo-related question.  I plan to buy a spare wheel for turbo but to swap it between 2 10-speed bikes with different cassette ratios.

Does it matter if I switch the wheel between the 2 bikes given that I won't be changing gears very often?

Abingdon Marathon 2014

Well done to the organisers - a few things might be nice to improve (narrow paths & I'm glad we didn't get any rain as that off-road stuff could have been tricky) but overall it was a good race.

Good to see Mick & Phil supporting today (dad wheeling his son in a wheelchair) & nice to chat to runners all the way around without anyone zoning out with their headphones.

Nice report IGIT - hope the event continues to attract more pirates next year.

Congrats on finishing but how did you add 0.4m to that swim?!

I was vaguely thinking of staying in West Bridgford but I don’t know the Nottingham area at all.  Google maps seems to indicate that the Premier Inn is around 2.5m from the race HQ which should be OK for those of us without cars.

Presumably there’s already a bit of demand for this though as the Sat night is coming up as £98.

Couldn't be bothered with the faff of IM Austria so have entered this.  Sigh.

Hi AJH - T1 isn't exactly the best place for a chat is it?!  Sorry to hear about DNF.

Seren - you can even do this as a full and finish in the morning if you want to.  Very laid-back atmosphere compared to other tris.  More comments on tritalk if you're interested.

Glad you enjoyed it - I didn't find the burger van to be a distraction, I was too busy cursing at the wind and the stretch of road with no lights.

See you at the full Outlaw if we both get in.

Can we at least wait until we've paid & entered or is that not the pirate way?

No race reports done yet then?  Tsk.
