New Low Temperature on El Presidente this Morning

For the hardy souls who braved the cold this morning, the official minimum temperature on my Rox 9.0 computer, was 0.3 degrees. Is this a record for El presidente?

Woeful road bike Brake Performance

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I picked up a cheap 09 Scott Speedster S50 (Flat Bar) roadie as a cheap commuter and the braking performance on it is atrocious.

From the Scott Specs
Brakes Scott Sport L SCBR 510 A 41-56mm

I understand that there are the cheapy OEM ones, but should I still expect being up to pull up from a medium pace within 5-10m?

Is my perception all out of whack from being used to decent hydro brakes all my life?

Should I throw on a set of 105's or put 3rd party pads on?

Hamster wheels aka the dreaded turbo trainer

Hey all

It is with a heavy heart (not really) that i must announce my turbo trainer has given up the ghost (It cost all of $99 from cellbikes.com a year ago, and it's the noisiest thing I've ever heard, so I'm not too sad).

Calga Tomorrow - 18th June

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Looking like its gonna be nice tomorrow, I am gonna race up at Calga tomorrow afternoon.

Sign on from 1.30pm with Racing from 2pm, I am gonna ride up from Hornsby to make it a 130km round trip, so aiming to leave at 11.30amish from Hornsby to ensure I have plenty of time, anyone keen to join me?

Not to sure how the legs will be, but will worry about that later.

Ryder Hesjedal - Tour de Suisse, stage 2

It's nice to get data from the pros, they don't often show HR & power to the public. Maybe it's because I'm a nerd I find this interesting:

It was also highly amusing that some of the pros I follow were having a pi$$ing competition on Twitter about what top speed they managed down that first descent. Note Ryder managed 97.8 km/h, but Cav. reckons he hit 107kph.

Road Bike

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I've been long considering getting a road bike after I finish the HSC in November, but the increasing stress that the year provides motivates me to looking into getting one sooner. I'm looking be able to ride if my time's limited or too wet to ride off road, though next year I want to use it as a cross training method and hence would like it to be light and good quality, though would like to work in the budget of within $1000.

Any sggestions?

cheapy road bike?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I am looking to get an old and cheap road bike (for when it rains heaps and the trails are real wet) to use. Has anyone got any tips for one that i could get for around 200 dollars?

Cheers Will

NSCC Ladies

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I see that our female members have been doing very well lately. While Sue was busy winning Ken Dinnerville, India was taking a second in the Crit and a first in the Road Race up in the Hunter Valley.

Well done to both.

Cancellara :Pit stop ....and crazy descent :-)

NSW Masters Champs wrap

A few of the more senior NSCC members headed out to Goulburn for the NSW Masters Road Race and Crit championships; and generally ended up having a more challenging ride than was expected.
The road races were held on Saturday with temperatures near freezing for the early starters along with a strong wind; and while it had warmed up a bit for the later starters the wind had picked up even more. As a result most grades ended up coming home in small groups to make it a tough day out.

Captions anyone?

Mmmmwah, mwah, mwah ... vieni qui ti sexy piccolo pezzo di strada, voglio bacio, bacio, bacio te!

Eye-wink

Giro Stage 6 (spoiler alert!)

Wow... how good were the last 5-6 kays of stage 6? Attack, attack, attack...

Think I've said it before, but love it when the pros cross the line and collapse off their bikes. That's what we're paying for! Eye-wink

Edit: Well, I was trying not to give the game away but Logan has - up goes he spoiler alert! Sticking out tongue

FWIW, I get on steephill.tv each morning and find their dodgy feed of the end of the stage. Then watch SBS to find out if anything interesting happened earlier.

Wouter Weylandt dies in Stage 3 of the Giro

Terrible news really, was only catching up on Twitter earlier this morning and saw this, not seen any of the images however from what Mike Tomalaris has said this morning I am not sure if I want to, sounds pretty grim.
