Is this the "I agree with flyaway" thread now? Should I revert to being more controversial?

I preferred the more sardonic version. Variety is the spice of life though.


...And another vote for strike while the iron is hot. 



It seemed like such a good idea...

The big day is July 19 next year so I guess that mid June would be the time to get half IM in. I haven't done tri before but have done a fair few run based events along with the occasional sportive and duathlon. However I've only done one event in 2014, half marathon.

Loving the truth and dose of reality from seren combined with the twisted psychology from Cheggers!

Scuba, any thoughts on where to start regarding swim techniques...I have my kit for drills on order but no clue beyond that.


So you bought kit because it would make you feel better or because you knew what to do with it? I suggest finding a Masters class first where you can get informed coaching. Otherwise pool toys are just that.

Well as a direct result of his moaning and resurrecting this thread I've remembered I was going to look into them for travel next year. So if he was trying to negatively impact them, well, it didn't really work...

Replacing campy crank will mean replacing shifters and rest of groupset too unless you're confident that there'a s Shimagnolo set up you can make work. It will always be "making it work" though. Vector S another option.
