    STOLEN Giant Anthem X SL1 2010 Sutherland Shire area

    Sadly bike was never found again, however NRMA were kind enough to replace it with a new bike under home contents insurance.

    Anyone using HRV to guide training load?

    The uni's actually prefer older populations as students typically conduct the research on fellow classmates and some teachers dont like this as it gives a false sense of what will occur in the workplace. Many now encourage students to bring in parents or extended family in older age brackets...

    I use NiteRider 1500 (here) on my helmet and modified Cygolite 750 on the bars - modified by using the niterider handle bar attachment clamp. I run helmet on medium and bars on high. I find this to be the balance point of enough light v run time for night time riding on the trails. I have...
