    Sydney Spring Cycle.....

    Didn't say it wasn't worth doing, just that I wouldn't do it again. There's a lot of people there who aren't very competent riders and I'd prefer to just do a ride with a few trusted friends. It was nice to do once, but I think once is enough.

    Can you tell a difference between a 12-25 and a 12-27?

    I guess you could ask 'what's the detriment?'. It's hard to see any real downside to the 12-27. I'm middle aged and have had a few surgeries. My back doesn't like grinding high gears. I got a compact crank and a 12-27. If I run out of gears going downhill I coast. I can pedal up to 60kph so...

    Guys wearing yellow jerseys

    Wore a Livestrong shirt to a local Ironman earlier in the year and a guy said "oh, so you're a big Lance Fan, eh?". I just said "not particularly, I just thought supporting Cancer research seemed like a good idea". To his credit he nodded and said, "Fair enough, good on you". All this talk...

    Bike riding Australia

    Start in Melbourne. Nothing to do with the ride, it's just always better to be leaving Melbourne and heading to Sydney. :cool: ;)

    Bike Choice, Cervelo Soloist vs Scott CR1

    mine's red/silver and I like it. Originally I wanted the grey anodised but when I saw the red/silver in person it I was quite taken by it - looks way better in real life than in pics /k

    Bike Choice, Cervelo Soloist vs Scott CR1

    I agree. Bought mine about 4 months ago and I'm quite fond of it. ;) Try George at Endeavour Cycles in Gymea. Circumstances meant I couldn't get it from him but I wish I could have. /k

    Cycling software/websites - what would you like to see in one?

    Web wise it's pretty much covered at http://www.bikejournal.com. I prefer standalone applications so wrote my own (which I'll expand for triathlon use as that's where my interest lies). /k

    Consumer Warning!!

    No probs, we agree. My 9yo daughter rides a really nice Giant with a very solid frame, nice gears and good brakes. It will get handed down to my son when the time is right and she'll get a new one /k
