    The yellow one is a Ferrari - maybe a 348.

    The black one is a Nissan 350z and the red one looks like some crap seppo thing like a Camaro. Buggered if I know what the racecar is.

    Nah, the end one has to have a / in it.

    so you put QUOTE=Albert50 inisde square brackets at the beginning and at the end of the text, you put /QUOTE inside square brackets.

    See? You can have hours of fun attributing all kinds of things to people.:D

    Classic, didn't even pay attention to the piccy of the two cars together, just checked out the two most interesting ones. Meh, not much of a Ferrari fan, so not surprising I didn't pick the yellow one.

    I starting to wonder about you guys. I give you a link to a scantily clad athlete who dad has money and what do I get? Truckloads of banter about the friggin cars!!! :confused:

    I've had a deep and meaningful conversation with Rochelle. Went along the lines of "They're calling for you to get over to the podium" to which she sweetly replied "Are they? Oh shit!". Then the fleeting moment was over as she scuttled off, leaving only a cloud of dust and a memory. :D

    Bludy Hell...
    My track bike is running 48x15 (since I got it).
    I bought a 14 and won a 49 so I figured i would play around with gearing....only to discover that the 14 & 49 ar both 1/8 whil ethe rest of the bits are 3/32...:mad:

    I know...im a dumbasss...just didnt figure on different standards (or none)..?

    Nope, don't think it's one of those. The nose is different, for a start.

    Where's HDT when you need him?

    seeing as how I want to buy your 49 off you real cheap like I'll hafta recommend sticking with the 3/32. :)

    But I'm a nice guy deep down, so I also hafta mention that the normal 'standard' for track bikes is 1/8. Best to go with that and turf the old 48x15 and the chain, otherwise you'll keep running into the same problem every time you forget to say "oh, yeah and by the way I'm so pissweak I only run 3/32 on my track bike" :D

    Now for the good news: I have a 15T 1/8 Durace cog that you can have. It's just sitting here in my toolkit doing nuttin. In fact I think I got it off climbo last year only to discover the original cog I had was a 15 too not a 16 as I had thought. :rolleyes: So maybe you need to ask climbo if I can give you the 15 cog.

    Any of you blokes know Stuey the claw? Met him and Drew someone at You Am I last night. We chucked Stuey's 6 month pregnant missus in a cab after the concert and headed off to get pissed and talk like the bike nerds I guess we are. Drew's time up Alpe D'Huez was much faster than mine. Good blokes.

    It was shit. Rained all day and I was stuck at work. Then I remembered that the OC started on the 2nd of Novemember. Just downloading it now. one and a half hours to new OC. It'll probably be shit.

    Zig Heil!

    My leg size is mostly genetics. I can only assume that they're bigger than last year because I've been doing tons of strength work to get back into shape after the busted collarbone. All track oriented stuff.

    I'm spinning slower than everyone else ATM because its early in their season and they're all running on about 86. I've just come off a full season of track racing so I'm already up around 90 except during the warmup race which I do on an 84. Most uncomfy. I don't bother changing gearing otherwise, except maybe a 94 for an enduro on a good night at DGV.
