    Hmmm, that's a bit out of reach at the moment, in fact, I dunno why I even asked you, coz I've got no money at the moment,. :p
    I bought some used ones off Hitchy a couple of years ago for $250!! :)

    Hey Internet price ninjas.... Price check on isle Lama... "2006 Mavic Ksyrium SSC SL Wheel Set. Clincher. Silver. As new, not ridden. Mavic skewers included".

    Kennedy has the 'wheel' for $733 (+550 for the set!?): AU$1283
    US sites list them around US750-900ish

    I think I've scored a better set of wheels than first thought. (except for their aerodynamic properties, but don't let facts get in the way of a good sale!).

    What should I be seeking? AU1k? $900?

    That's right! :) Good luck. :D
    The guys I know who 'get around things' usually end up doing their training early morning, tuck the kids into bed early at night, then drop off ten minutes later at about 8:30pm :p

    Yeah, good deal! :D

    I also thought they were gunna come down in price. The 7800s were $720 in some arsehole shops a few years ago, then dropped to around $600 in most; then Cecil Walker had them for $540; then I got some for cost at $490; then....well....that's the end..............now they're going up :p

    I sold a pair of them for $850 two years ago. So assuming they be glorious in nature then you could easy ask for a kilo fresh.

    "Dan,

    most cycling chicks are turbo-dykes, and no one wants to date them.

    I recommend you check out some triathlon forums instead."

    Fat bastards like that one taste better.
    Throw the fecker in a roasting pan with a few spuds and some pumpkin. That'll wipe the grin off his/her rotten little reptilian head.
    Did I ever tell ya about the time I tried to kill a cobra with a bb gun?

    1996 Chateau Labegorce last night - I feel fine. :D

    Oh yeah, Sydneysiders - Bistro Ortolan in Leichhardt is well worth a visit, exquisite food.

    The dollar in this part of the world may be farked, but it's still cheaper over the net than in the local shops.

    I just bought a Polar speed sensor from Total Cycling for GBP26 air mailed. About NZD$75 at the current exchange rate. I was quoted NZD$150 from my local shop.

    I hope that Total doesn't have the same deal with Etihad as Ribble :confused:

    St. Halletts something for me. It tasted fine at the time but there must have ben something wrong with it 'coz I feel crook.
    I was out on the bike yesterday when I spoted some young blokes in the park riding trials bikes. They were pulling some amazing stunts, jumping their bikes 3 ft. onto a sandstone wall and jumping from sandstone block to block, all from a standing start. they were doing some pretty impressive trackstands too.
    My first thought was "What a great way to meet lots of nurses! I want one." lol, but I think I've exceeded my quota of fractures for one lifetime
    Wish I still had my trials motorcycle.
    My mum left it out on the footpath. :mad:

    I just watched the Tour of Californication on TV

    I farkin pissed myself when Armstrong knocked off Leipheimer. :D

    Also, what was with the huge amount of seppos dressed like dickheads running along next to the riders? I've never seen anything like it. I don't get all the 'woot woots' from the seppo spectators either. Are they doing owl or monkey impersonations?
