Long time since the Aldi bibs saw the light of day Did have to bin a couple of other old faithfuls the other day after complaints of overexposure. Shame on them for sitting on an old man's wheel anyway I reckon
May have to take a run down to see you about some additional wardrobe for the trip in any case.

No reference made to compacts Donny He did stipulate about cassette size though, so I guess you won't be getting a lift with him
I pass the criteria what time are you picking me up
ok whats the update guys?
yeahhh "Mr keep it in the big ring".... Didnt you have a 42 large chainring when we went to jenolan..
No plastic fantastic here apart from the bar and post... i'm hiding my uhmmm gadget garmin in me pocket and i'm gonna lie and say i have a 21 casette... lol..
any clip on rear flaps that suit the soloist ? prob ones that clip on the calipers.. i have a topeak but only suits round seatposts...
i volunteer as a second driver... you need to be fresh for the climbs Greg..
although i take absolutely no responsibility, as my right foot has a mind of its ownn
ohh wait .. Liberty or Evo ??
28 on the back rules me out, but i have 54 on the front, maybe it will make up for it and cancel each other out
And chucky this is bandito were talking about, he will remove those compact cranks faster than you can say "compact cranks"
Since the Spizman's coming I'll probably be taking the noisy one. That's if I'm driving... we'll have to sort out what cars we have to choose from I guess. There's 8 of us going so there's going to be a bit of stuff to pack in.
my mode of transport will be a civic hatch. The 4x4 with the kids seats needs to stay with the wifey.
would prefer to hitch ( will not bring garmin and 27 if I have to ) and pitch in for petrol if possible.
Mine is default...only one vehicle in the fam. That means I need to hitch a ride and of course will share petrol expenses....
Only two weeks to go. Time to start pointing the bike uphill occasionally in preparation. Steady repeats on Garie Beach Rd. this afternoon as a starter.

Sheesh you didn't short change yourself when you picked a hill!

You guys are pure masochists! They're some serious hills.
GT Avalanche 1.0 | TCR Alliance 0 | Giant Bowery | BMW K1300R
Two wheels good, Four wheels bad
You're a glutton for punishment Ehly. Of course if I had not had to be home to buy dinner I'd have done 9 repeats on Garie Beach
Rode like a plonker this morning. Comfortable throughout, about 8th wheel under the bridge at ECR on last lap, decided to go real wide on the downhill R/hander, bloke in front decided to start braking, about 25 went past on the inside and it was all over well that's my excuse for this wee!

Stuff riding up hills, my training for the Snowies now consists of trying to find a good jacket for the expected wet weather The light weight one I took last year just didn't cut it when we came down Falls Creek
if its raining all i have to worry about is which hand i am going to hold my JD and coke in whilst watching the big screen at the pub
A week to go gents
Current form guide;
Ehly- Training hard, fit, fast. Completely mad. Loves being in the hurtbox.
Lou- Rides up and down hills with Ehly, so must be at least slightly mad.
Spiza- Spent the last month drinking coffee. Hasn't slept since. Doesn't ride Cervelo, but still dangerous.
Donny- Rides Cervelo, but might be taking the Giant. Still in with a chance.
Chuck- Aiming to smash all the Strava KOMs. The mention of Strava and Garmin will put him ahead of Bandito.
Sandy- At home in cold, wet conditions. The one to watch when it comes to "carb loading" at the pub.
BMXBandito- Hardman, fit, but completely mad. Rides a Cervelo, but likely to turn up on a fixie.
Greg- Training consists of remembering the one hill he's ever ridden up and eating chocolate.
