I've got a 12-32 and a mtb derailleur if you want it Scotto. That and a 12 pack of HTFU. The missus has hinted that she would be happy to have a weekend away for this event next year, so I might look to do it then. Actually, when you've stopped crying after this year you can let me know how it went.

at lunch today i put the 11-28 on and while at it got the compact crankset out to see the difference.
within 100m of home my front tyre went down - right under the local magpies tree - didnt bother to fix it, just skulked home looking over my shoulder !!.

Was going to do the epic this year but achilles problems have seen me just return to the bike after 6months off. Last weekends 40km effort hurt enough, don't think I'll be in good enough form to attack Fitzs. Nevermind, there's always next year.

compact and 11-28 for me. I haven't done anywhere near enough training for this. The 250 is going to destroy me I think...

Thought I'd have to skip fitz this year because of child minding duties, enter who else but Nanna!

I'm going to sign up for the 205km again, although my ego would love to have a crack at the 250km I'd like to be able to compare my time from last years.

Aside from the torture side of it (that we all love deep down) I had so much fun last time. Great roads, great scenery and great people, volunteers and cyclists.

I'll be running 50-34t and 11-25t again.

you already planning on pulling out with 5kms to go.

Am doing the 165km with Scott, and fear we are in for a whole world of hurt :? :? Did the 165km last year, but this time last year I had a LOT more training rides under my belt. Am feeling very underdone with only 4 weeks to go :? :? Am counting on the hope that we don't have that mf'cker of a head wind we had last year.

It's an awesome event though. A tough ride through some great roads and good scenery. Would recommend anyone to get down there for the weekend. There's plenty of different ride distances to cater for most levels.
