Thanks for the ride this morning lads. Was good to take the Viner out and put some KM's on it, rather then the usual West End coast... Great bunch of guys and some cool retro rides! That Kotter look ace Dan!

Cheers for the ride, boys, next time I'll have the Viking battle ready. Glad we got in before the storm!

Thanks for bringing the Europa along Munga, sorry about my ambivalence. If someone else is super keen then don't let my dicking about stuff you around. If you did separate the frame, I'd be interested in the 105 groupset.

Also have to say the old school Campy and DA brifters some of you guys were running are very nice, how hard is it to get a hold of that kind of stuff usually?

no worries at all, if anyone wants the frame, i'll let you know. pm me an offer on the group - derailleurs, cranks, brakes, wheelset.

usually you buy a bike with most of the parts on it, and then hunt around for the rest on ebay or forums

Here is the video's from yesterday's Raturday ride (17th Nov).

I can't see a big difference between the quality of 2 cameras, so for $100 ($85 at present at the large office supply warehouse run by westfarmers), it appears fairly good value.

I got just on 3 hours from the battery, so anything longer it turns off, but the weight is half of my other one, so an acceptable trade off.

Need to tweek the menu, it's currently recording in 20 minute blocks, I think 10 might be better.

And I had it aimed too low so you'll get a sore neck trying to look under the top of the screen, but hopefully I've got it aimed better now.

Video # 4 http://youtu.be/WjXhQLdMrfU

Video # 5 http://youtu.be/xSpFv82d2e0



And if you're interested, my trip home through the traffic, which will show what sort of view you get on a commute,

Incidentally, I rode home in the storm yesterday - didn't see anyone else on the road. Soft.

My brother actually rode from enoggera to nudgee beach yesterday and had to climb up into the roof of a bus shelter to escape the hail.

I recall saying that i would pay for the 6 coffees at our table, which seemed logical since there were full breakfasts being ordered at the other table.

So not sure what happened, but the 6 coffees at my table were paid for.

Good as that shop is,http://www.cupcoffee.com.au/, their system of order first then pay later is likely to result in this sort of complication with large groups.

That's what happened, Steve. Its all okay - everything that was ordered was paid for, and consumed.
