      Aaron? this thing is only approx $3.5k? buy it. Sell some of your other bikes. It should even out in the end. This thing looks mental!

      ,

      yes I would get it from velodrome uk, he seems like a decent enough bloke, posts on a couple of the cycling web sites and it's 1500 gbp, no shipping charge and then customs, so about another $500 probably.
      awsome bike for the $$
      I'd love a BT, but too much $ for me. the poms did ok with the same bike as the dolan at the olympics hey?
      I like being in the masters now, can buy whatever you want, when you want. being younger and sponsored all I did was look at other folks riding nice stuff, and wondering what and when anything I was going to use would turn up and if it would be any good.

      been chatting with the guy, the price is with VAT which we dont have to pay, so frame, fork, headset and seatpost is just over AUD $2.5k with 7 day free shipping.

      He said he just stuck a Dutch national rider on one with a center of bottom bracket to saddle rail clamp distance of 84cm, I am at 81cm so good to go.

      Rob? great MTB pics.... I totally agree with matty, it's shots like that which make every office bound bike nerd turn to a quivering mass of "ooh man, what I am doing here?" envy!
      Aaron? 1) happy bday forthe upcoming date. 2) those frames are p0rn!
      and,.... I havent' ridden since tuesday. I got drunk each of the last 3 nights and haven't eaten anything but pizza for 3 days. Despite a lotta fun,..... oh man,.. now my insides feel as if they've turned into a dirty ash tray. heheheheh
      .

      The ride had great views, but not very technical/fun... and also it highlighted my poor mtb fitness as opposed to my road riding fitness
      It was great to get out... the other scenic ride in the mtns is narrowneck...
      here some more pics
      I especially like the ciff ones.

      the spesh look spretty good.
      there was photo's of boonen and shlek (? which one) riding it so far.
      I had a mate do the camapgnolo grand fondo (now the sportful grand fondo) he did it in 9 hours I think, avg 28kmph. pretty good for someone in their mid 50's. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      he didn't see it but mr pinarello himself was there, riding on a new dogma. It only takes D12 and has no way to run normal cables.

      I asked questions now cause I have been so damn busy I forgot to ask them earlier. My Italian is a bit rusty... I remember the insults though You wanted around $700?
      I saw it and thought "Nice table... I should bid" then I put watch on it, and it didn't get a message. Did you end it early?

      Lot's of watchers, one 0.99 bid, I couldn't be bothered with the usual dummy bid strategy.
      Pulled it, now they're all asking after it of course, flea marketeers...

      Spotted Cadel on the front of a Winners bar. Looks like he's on a Columbus Steel bike Big grin on his face because of it.

      Who knows what the race has in stall for us. I think it's all just a big conspiracy to make sure no Aussie rider ever wins the race.
      I'm sure there are more dopers in the sport. What I can't work out is why there is a huge delay between the event, processing of samples, analysis and a reaction to a result... Then months before a "non-negative" testing of the B sample result is reached. Why do they save the release of the information up to the eve of the TdF when riders like Chalie Wegalius are sitting at home on the couch twittering Lance...

      so, should we try to pick the winner of the tdf, overall, points and climber
      or do we pick the first doper to get caught, first rider in yellow to get busted, first nobody waterbottle carrier to get done etc?

      TMK - It always makes me wonder why so many dopings claims get made just before the TDF each year.
      When you think about it doing it this way is a very good tactic! Wait until the eve of the Tour then ban 4-7 riders and cause massive team and race disruption. What better way to send a message against doping?
      I still think the fight against doping is doing harm to the image of cycling and a waste of time. It obviously doesn't work as when riders are caught it 'should' be a big deterrent to those thinking of doping. Instead they continue to find more and more riders so therefore one could assume the chance of being caught is very slim.
      The decision of an athlete to dope is the benefit vs risk of being caught. Taking my beliefs as an example, i believe they all take some sort of banned substance (hear me out before you flame me). Lets say there are 200 riders and 10 get caught each year. You have a 5% chance of being caught but your odds greatly decrease with type and timing most likely down to less than 1% if you get it all right.
      A 1% risk of a 1yr-2yr ban vs greatly improved results/better team/more income etc. The question then becomes, why 'wouldn't' you dope! Just something to think about.
      The biggest impact they could make will be outrageous fines to riders and make them virtually bankrupt. Aside from that, they need to improve their testing for blood doping. The fact that riders are getting caught for using EPO in the off season says to me that riders are then storing that blood and swapping to blood doping during the racing season thus lessening the chance of being caught.

      good god
      for some reason, I'm starting to really like Cadel Evans and hope he does well.
      Don't mind that bike either. It's fugly for sure, but in a good way. maybe even with yellow bar tape it would better, maybe it will have it for when he is in it?
      Will look weird with the team kit though, real mish mash of colour.

    35. 07-02-2009 08:04 PM #12250
      wait a sec
      is it super record on that bike? and I can't tell if they are carbon spoke wheels or not? I think they aren't but the rear has a power tap hub I guess.
      pretty sweet. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
