Has anyone seen the Sonik in the flesh yet? I am considering getting my race licence again and also contemplating doing some track racing... Up until now the summer seaon has been filled up with Triathlon training and racing so have missed out each year. But with the plan just to focus on the cyclin...

It doesn't seem to me to be a point which has any merit, and there's no evidence to suggest any link between running red lights and drivers' aggression towards cyclists. Sorry, but nearly every 'discussion'* I've had with irate motorists have revolved around three issues. Licence (or lack there of ...

I saw him walking back yesterday evening, carrying a green shopping bag with food in it. I usually only see him sitting underneath the tollway in the morning, or walking towards the city from there. Sounds like it is Ron. I was part of the Burnley Bouldering wall project and Ron and helped during t...

Unfortunately the stand that just arrived at work today doesn't look the the one you attached a photo of tonyk, but it doesn't look like yours could hold up my four bikes at the same time... This stand should now clear some space in the third bedroom with 4 bikes up rather than across (my wife asked...

That's right, what was I thinking diverting the topic away from hassling you for only posting stuff for sale and not chatting... :lol:

I didn't want to risk missing out so straight away put in the order. Given freight to Melbourne for the stand was only $14 for a bulky item, you could order the jerseys later if need be... Currently I have 4 bikes stacked side by side in the small third bedroom using a couple of old joined Minoura s...

Re: Free standing bike rack

Hopefully the online stock listing is accurate so they still had one in stock to fi...

I thought one tooth too many on the front but you know... what do I know? it was just my impression that the laps she lifted a bit she looked more comfortable. at the faster cadence. I'd say it was the right gear for the time Liz needed to make the 39+ kh/hr record, but too big at 37km/hr... Great ...
