Rules? I don't have rules, I have passion, I have preferences, I have likes & I have dislikes, they aren't rules. Even if they were, I would break them just for the fun of it.

Don't know, I got to Westend just before 6 & decided I wasn't going to hang around, so went on my own.

Vaeske, how did your wheels go?

The weather was moderately lousy but the company was good.
But we were missing the CO and RSM unfortunately.
Obviously had bigger strategic issues to contend with.
Vaeske didn't seem to have much wheel issues.
but Wazza did.

At Tennyson his Rubino Pro was impaled by an inch long wood screw (near the Tennis Centre)
Then the replacement tube suffered an early demise about a kilometre later.

Hopefully things held together after that.
I had to make an exit at Highgate Hill.

Hey guys, nice to meet you this morning. Apologies Andrew and I couldn't hang around after the Tennyson section, but we both had to ride back home to the Southside and get our boys off to a birthday party. Next time will get along for the coffee finish.

Cheers Michael

Gee whiz, I was there at 5:55 and didn't see you, we left at 6:15 and picked up Elantra on the way, more tyre issues.

I knew there was something different this morning, it wasn't a wash and polish, it was the new wheels :roll: :wink:

There'll be no more video posted on you tube.

I starteda gmail account which slowed my computer down to half it's speed, then created issues uploading videos to you tube, now that I've closed the gmail account my access to you tube has been cancelled & I can only start a new account if I start a gmail account, this is NOT going to happen.


I'll look for another video hosting site but I'm not sacrificing the performance of my computer just to cater to google's fancies.

What's this crazy talk? I think there may be a more rational explanation than google stealing half your computing power ;)

XP & lots (1TB).



I've just spent the last hour trying to find another video hosting site & guess what, youtube is the only decent one that I can see that is well known.

I've just bitten the bullet & opened another 9mail account (just going to have to put up with the slower speeds), went into youtube to open a new account & guess what? I already have a new youtube account (9009le embeds trojans so that everything 9oo9le opens together), I now realise what my problem is, I have a paid anti-virus software program that works extremely well (you need a good one when you watch the amount of porn that I do, my 2 hobbies- bicycles & porn) because of the trojans running through 9oo9le the anti-virus is slowing everything down to ensure that it's all safe.


I have no control over the old you tube address now, but I have a new one up & running (I'm currently uploading vids from my ride yesterday, to test it), they'll be under Benotto Ottimo as that's the new 9mail name.


Sorry I missed ya yesterday Waz, I saw only your car when I got back, the street was empty except the white ute & the ladies silver car, you must have nearly have been right behind me as I rode through Sth Brissie & West End, I had 2 spare tubes on board too. The upside was I did PB's for nearly every segment (I keep telling you bunch that ya all screw me strava segments) or was within 3 seconds of all bar 1 (which was 12 seconds), the ones I didn't get were set on my modernish aluminium drug cheat team bike with brifters, so all this stuff about D/T shifting is antique & slow is bollocks, if ya know how to ride D/T shifting & ya have some practice riding with it then it's just as quick (nearly but I'll put that down to the Verty weighs a bit over 11kgs & the postal bike weighs 7.4kgs but lets see what happens once the Ottimo is built & tuned, henceforth to be known as the 'Benottimo') as riding a modern bike.

Yeah I know, some of you like brifter shift, I'm just pointing out that if you're running brifter shift (or should that be shite :lol: ) because you think it'll be faster, then it's the engine (you) not the transmission (the bike) that'll make the biggest difference. Plus D/T shifting is easier to maintain, has less breakage issues (remember all them little pawls & springs inside a brifter lever), D/T shifting if it's indexed & has issues, you can switch to friction. And the biggest upside to D/T shifting, it makes your bike 'look' retro (oh did I mention I like bicycles & porn, sometimes the line between them gets blurred, nice retro bike, nice D/T shifter set, hmmmm getting a bit of 'boing' in my loins :lol: ) & people do notice.


Anyway enough of my preaching from the soapbox, hopefully my ride will be loaded up onto you tube within the next few hours (providing 9oo9le don't screw me around), not that you'd be interested, just the view from my helmet as I roar past (well a few times on the flat anyway) a lot of modern briftered bikes.
