    Training Log Brisneys training bullshit (and endurance racing experiences).

    I'm doing the SDBC later this year. It's going to be a bastard and I need to get fit. I'm in my early 30's and not unfit, but endurance racing is like nothing I've ever done - I raced DH back in the day and a 5 minute race run was considered long. Anyway, I've engaged an online coach (MTB...

    Fatter than ya mum!

    Well what have we here? Plenty of chainstay clearance for a FAT TIRE! Eh?! Eh?! Fuck I'm funny. A little back story: I've been a medic for the Simpson Desert Bike Challenge for the last two years and a drunken bid at the charity auction after the race last year kinda tipped my hand in the...

    Hi girls, Anyone doing the Keepit Real 100 on Dec 14? I've had to pull out unfortunately and my GF is going to do it alone. It'd be nice if she could meet someone before the race and say hi at least, or even ride with someone! Cheers B.

    Coaching - online and otherwise

    Hey kids, So I just happened to ride past Active Cycle Coaching (in Milton, Brisbane) today and stopped in for a chat. They offer indoor group training sessions (but I don't have any kind of bike that will work on a trainer) and personalised coaching (for a shite load more). There's also...

    School me on computers and HRMs!

    So I'm delving into new territory for me. I'm not really interested in counting carbs, measuring and quantifying my 'workouts' or shaving my legs, but I need to train for a multi day epic next year. Can someone give me the ins and outs of HRMs? Numbers and data are nice and all but does...

    Lefty Rebuild advice

    Hey all, Need some advice on a lefty rebuild. Found some needle bearings floating around in the boot and need to replace them - anyone here done it? Got a source for parts? There's a local mob that can rebuild it but won't sell me the parts alone. I find this rather objectionable and would...

    Farkers, if you have or like boobs you owe me money.

    Alright Farkers, listen up. This July myself and a team of crack kiteboarders will be crossing the Torres Straight, raising money for the McGrath Foundation along the way and promoting breast awareness. The expedition itself is no trivial undertaking - raging tides, fickle winds, and...
