    #cycling chatroom on austnet

    I agree, forums do have their place, but for a more realtime (chit) chat talk IRC is the way to go, so this is a great initiative.. Somehow i think Cyclingforums needs it's own 'official' IRC chat channel (and ofcourse a lot a recurring visitors). I wonder why there are (almost?) zero cycling...

    Ergonomic handlebars?

    I have a Deda Synapsi handlebar on my current roadbike, and really like the shape/ergonomics of the handlebar. But the thing I don't really like about it is the integrated stem. So for my new roadbike i'm looking for a handlebar that is compareble in shape/ergonomics, but needs a seperate...

    Good quality RED tires for a road bike

    For a (hopefully soon) to be build new roadbike i'm looking for good quality tires which are completely red in color. On my current bike i'm using Vittoria Evo CX tires which i think are pretty darn good (although expensive :) ), but the red colored version of those tyres have a black thread...

    Santa Cruz RACER

If you need some...

    Anybody have a polar .hrm file which includes power for me?

    I'm trying to convert my trainer files (Tacx Ergotrainer) to .hrm files. Things like like speed, cadence, heartrate, altitude (slope on the trainer) works fine, and graph nicely in the PPP software. But for some reason i can't get power to show :-\ Does anybody have an example .hrm file for...

    Convert Tacx Ergotrainer files to polar hrm files?

    Well, the weather today was bad enough to have a ride on the trainer for the very first time ;-) I transfered the training data from the tacx trainer to my PC, and with some cutting and pasting i was able to create a .hrm graph from the information of the tacx trainer. But for some reason i...

    I ordered a Tacx Grand Excel Ergotrainer for doing some training when winter comes.. I also have a Polar S720i HRM, and use the software extensivly. Although the Tacx trainer does have its own software package with graphs for heartrate, cadance, speed and power output it would be nice to...

    Difference between Vittoria EVO CX, KX and KS tires?

    I'm using Vittoria open corsa (EVO) CX tires for a while now, and really like them....just too bad they are pretty expensive.. But i'm wondering what the difference is between the CX, KX and KS types ? I couldn't find any information on the Vittoria site about it.. Does anybody know ?

    Repairstand?

    i have seen that T3075 model, but don't really like the fact that you have to remove a wheel to be able to do some work on the bike, i rather have a stand like the T3000 or the Park Tool that hold the bike completely.

    Repairstand?

    I'm looking for a repairstand to do some (small) repairs and my bike, and to make bike cleaning easier.. Now i've been looking at the ParkTool stands, and although they seem to be really good according to review, they are also very expensive. Now i found that Tacx has a repairstand (Tacx -...

    Giro helmet replacement after crash?

    I went to my local LBS today for a chat (and some coffee :) ) They had contacted the Distributer for Giro about the 'crash replacement'. It seems i need to write a letter about the crash, and give that with the damaged helmet to my LBS. They will send it back to the distributer, and they will...

    Giro helmet replacement after crash?

    I took a closer look at my helmet.. I already noticed some scratches at the front and side of the helmet, but while checking it out i noticed a big crack in the underlying styrofoam (or whatever it is) going almost completely trough (and the helmet would probably break in half if i were to...

    I crashed with my bike last week (which made me salto forward with the bike) , i injured my shoulder and needed some surgery :-\ However, my bike is still in perfect shape, the headset needed some reajusting, and the left STI shifter has a dent and some scratchmarks... other than that there...

    Power (watts) and calories

    I ordered a USE Alien Aero carbon seatpost (size M) from my local LBS around 2 months ago, after numerous calls to their distributeur they still are unable to get this seatpost. Ofcourse i'm getting pretty sick of waiting for this long, so i'm wondering if anybody knows an (online) bikeshop...
