Some of those hubs are bigger than a Shimano Nexus/Alfine 8-speed internal hub. They come close to the size of the Rohloff 14-speed hubs! - And yet... Nothing inside... :cry: What a waste. :|

In the beginning God created the bicycle, saw that it was good, then went for a nice Sunday ride on the bike lanes He'd made the day before, and they were good, too, because they were new and He had the angels keep them clear of debris. Later, of course, God would get cross and have the flood wash all the good ones away.

And God said to Himself, Let us create man, because cycling is too much fun to keep to Myself, and so He created man, him did He create, create did He him do. And God put man in paradise, and commanded him, Glideth upon the earth anywhere thou wisheth, except for that big hill over there. For on the day thou goeth down that hill, thou shalt surely die.

And God said, Man needs a companion to keep him from spending too much money on new bicycles. So God caused man to fall into a deep sleep by asking him if he wanted to go clothes shopping at the mall, then took a rib from him. Then God said to Himself, Who am I kidding, I'll never hear the end of it when she finds out she was just a rib, so He created woman from frankincense and myrrh and a certain je ne sais quoi.

And God said, Let man have dominion over lathe drills and Philips head screwdrivers, and let woman have dominion over everything else, and as long as thou art naked and unashamed, thou might as well be fruitful and multiply.

Lastly, God created the chicken and the egg, in that order, which should clear up that matter.

Now the serpent, he was a wily one, and he said to woman, Yea, hath God said you may cycle anywhere but down that hill? And the woman said unto the serpent, That's about the size of it: go downhill and die. And the serpent said, Ye shall not surely die, you probably won't even fall off. For God doth know that on the day you go downhill, you will not need to pedal for a long time. Go on, give it a try.

And the woman saw that the hill was good, she did not need to pedal for a long time. She told the man about it, and he also went downhill. Their eyes were opened, they saw they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves into padded cycling shorts because sometimes it got bumpy going downhill.

And they heard the voice of God as He was offroad, fully suspended of course, and they hid their bicycles at the bottom of the hill and started whistling nervously. And God called unto the man, and said, Where art thou? And the man said, We art down here. And God said, Hast thou cycled downhill, whereoff I commanded thee that thou shouldest not? And man said, It was her idea.

And God said unto the woman, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow whilst climbing hills; in pain shalt thou perch upon thy saddle.

And God said unto the man, Because thou hast harkened unto the voice of thy wife, cursed is regular bike maintenance. The inner workings of the hub gear will be beyond thou to repair. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou service thy freewheel.

And God said, Behold, the man doesn't listen very well, so he kicked him out of paradise and guarded the entrance with a sign of a picture of a bicycle in the middle of a red circle. And He had a Cherubim with a flaming sword stop by a few times a week for good measure.

This is the book of the generations. The first bicycle was a single speed, Godspeed, but after that it got complicated. Sprockets begat sprockets and cables begat kinks. Celerifere begat Draisienne begat Macmillan begat Michaux begat Ariel begat Bayliss Thomas begat Lawson begat Rover begat Boneshaker begat Ordinary begat Raleigh.

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth in a critical mass, God saw that the wickedness of man was great and he did not like to give way to anyone on the road even his mother, so He directed Noah to build an ark made out of renewable resources. There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark every type of bicycle: one to ride and one for spare parts. And Noah gathered two touring bikes and two mountain bikes; two recumbents and two tandems; two road racing bikes and two cross bikes; also four unicycles, just in case there was a misunderstanding, and a brace of Bromptons, as their folded countenance pleasethed Him. And God said there might be Some strong winds in the Southeast. And it rained for 40 days and 40 nights, then drizzled for another fortnight.

And God remembered Noah and asswaged the waters, and Noah opened a door on the ark and set loose Japheth on a unicycle, and God said This is a covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature: that a man on a unicycle is a hilarious sight. The waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

A bit later, God spake unto Moses, saying, Here are a few ground rules, I hath numbered them for thou for easy reference:

I. Thou shalt hold no other races above the Tour de France.
II. Thou shalt not make unto thee helmets which cost more than £100.
III. Thou shalt not take My name in vain everytime thou gettest a flat tyre.
IV. Remember to oil thy chain, to keep it rolling.
V. Honour the Zebra Crossing and those walking upon the face of it.
VI. Thou shalt not ignore other road users, nor cycle recklessly upon the pavement.
VII. Thou shalt not steal bicycles.
VIII. Thou shalt not kill, except bicycle thieves.
IX. Thou shalt not hang onto moving cars.
X. Thou shalt not covet they neighbour's new Cannondale, nor his groupset, nor his £3000 mtb, nor even his stylish shades.

Forget not the Titanium Rule: Signal unto others as thou wouldst have others signal unto thou.

And moving right along, there came four horsemen of the Apocalypse, and they were the Taxicab Driver, and the Motorcycle Messenger, and the White Van Man, and the Man Opening a Car Door Without Looking.

Amen

I took yesterday off. Wasn't the best really. I was really disappointed that there were no strippers at the Oxford Tavern. Regarding my "tatoo": what goes on tour STAYS on tour. Good news is that I now have a nice new track bike toy to play with during the Christmas Carnivals. Yay. :mrgreen:

So I went over to have a look at the new DHBC Twitter page, and noticed that a picture of the DHBC trophy winners from the Christmas Party.

Naturally, I thought I'd have a look, but my computer was a bit slow to render the image. I decided to capture the image that got displayed on my screen.

It looks like DHBC only hands out awards to zombies! - Either that, or there were way to many drinkies had on the night...

That's bike related, and it stands for cruisers. That came about because they didn't like being referred to as slowies.

hung, i think you need to re watch the ghost rider vids, this guy does some trippy stuff between traffic, but you cant actually see his speedo, and ghost rider has done some trippy things, and beaten a lot of police chases. The first half of the video you could do on my bike pretty easily (i cant wheelie, so cant do it :P)

I can't really get one with a ring to it, but I like that last one..
Unless I'm a lot fitter, orits a club race where the guy I'm trying to beat just pulled to the back, I wait for some one to go and sit them :D though there may be a point that I know to go from, hmmnnn this isn't that simple, I don't have any one rule for this really.

If you had a prosthetic you would hate to have to buy a shoe you didn't need. Nothing else for it. Sell it on ebay to someone who's had their other leg off!

I discovered that if you log into ebay.com.au, put your shoe size in and select worldwide, it doesn't pick up the shoes on ebay.com as they ain't classified in euro sizing.

Is it my imagination or have bike shoes actually got more expensive, especially considering how strong the aussie dollar is

I haven't noticed bike shoes getting more expensive, but I am vigilant for the deep discounts that pop up every now and then...

I would suggest looking for bargains in UK & Europe before USA, on Ebay or elesewhere. For a start, Cycling is almost as much a fringe sport in the USA as it is in Australia, whereas Cycling is pretty much mainstream in Europe, and rider numbers in the UK leave Australia for dead. This results in substantial volume discounts from many sellers, which Aussie retailers can't or won't offer. The other problem with the US is shipping costs, which are astronomical. It typically costs 3 times as much to ship anything from the USA as it does from Europe or the UK.

In my experience, shipping is very cheap from Italy, UK and spain. Germany and France can be cheap for small items, but not for large items. Switzerland is at the expensive end.

He didn't eat enough, think about how much his daily calorie burn would of been

He consumed 24 chicken snack wraps, 23 hamburgers, three filet-o-fish burgers, an Aberdeen Angus burger, 63 cookies and 91 hotcakes in the month before the race.

Definitely not enough food, unless they haven't mentioned the kilos of chips.

From another forum, bicycle slang, who's the guilty party? Amy, Camilla, Joanne, Lizanne, Victoria, Jessica, EMT?

Comedian wrote:Being Chicked : This is where a male cyclist has his doors sucked off by a "chick". This can be very traumatic for the male cyclist.

I can't claim credit for this though. I saw this on Lisa Jacobs hilarious "Ride Happy" blog. Hat tip to Lisa's Mum.

Dear Lisa's Mum,
I desperately seek your counsel. Yesterday, I was the victim of a traumatic incident. I was out riding and this cyclist came past me and almost sucked my helmet off. I chased for a while, then just as I was about to give up the cyclist turned around and it was a GIRL! I have never been passed by anyone before other than that guy at work who trains really hard and is going to race the Gatorade triathlon series in the Summer with other elite athletes. I am a happily married diesel mechanic with 4 children and I love steak and AC/DC, but this has compromised my manhood. What should I do?

Horrified,
Williamstown


Dear Horrified

I believe your experience is what is known in common parlance as ‘being chicked’. Don't be too hard on yourself. Some of my best friends are chicks, although I never let them ride with me because they half-wheel and have no respect for wicker baskets. My advice to you is that next time you feel in danger of being chicked, just feign a rear wheel puncture and pull over with a concerned look. If the chick offers to help, insist gallantly that she ride on, because changing a tube IS a man's job, after all. If the chick is a friend of yours, you can follow up later on with an explanation of the diabolical mechanical that prevented you ripping her legs off, which is, you can explain, what would have happened on any other day if only you hadn't punctured.

Downtube shifters! - What is old is new again!!!

Actually, for several years after brifters first came out, numerous racers used a downtube shifter for the front derailleur, and a brifter on only the right side. This was a happy compromise between weight and performance.
