Re: Missing the point on the new cycling laws

Other cyclists have been fined for going thru red lights, those lights are pedestrian lights at Moore Park where the cycleway is broken by a pedestrian light that has no bicycle lantern. The only way to legally get across is to dismount and walk across. Those doing Saturday slowies, check out the li...

Re: Sprint Specific Ergo Session Ideas

Your fast twitch fibres will have something like a 15 second duration (varies). To focus the training primarily on these you need to short maximal efforts and then allow a short period of time for them to recover. For example 15 second sprints, 45 seconds rest. Repeat 12 times. A little off topic bu...

Really depends on the level of quality you want. You can buy knicks for $20 or $200. Its a personal thing

Re: Missing the point on the new cycling laws

Wheel and pedal reflectors are mandatory in WA even if the bike is a fully enclosed recumbent. The law can been catered for by sticking a bit of reflective tap to your rim and the back of the pedals, though I'm not sure how it would go onto double sided SPD's. There seems to be some rumblings that i...

Re: Missing the point on the new cycling laws

Well said Stuart. For the new fines, some are the same as for a motor vehicle, despite the huge disparity in danger to others. And rather than getting rid of out dated laws, as did SA, they have increased the fine. Apparently its safe to ride on the footpath if you are accompanying a minor under 12 ...

People were fined for riding on the footpath in the blitz. Most likely those who lack the confidence to ride in the traffic. The Blitz had little to do with safety

Re: WTB 12 tooth track cog

46 - 13 should be fine, that's about the same as 50 - 14. http://www.bikecalc.com/gear_inches

48 - 14 is probably the most common gear with some riding 49 - 14 or 50 - 14

I recall a few years back that Alan Whiteman (Fenpaddler) had a 13 lying around

Re: Time Trial Bars

What I did was buy a base bar and use clip-ons, an inexpensive solution. While the hardware itself is not as aero as an integrated design, it allows for a lot more adjustment. Suggest this avenue if no one comes up with a suitable offering
