@ gj.

it's the natural evolution for a weenie who can't fit an SLR. (lightest padded saddle)

I love their shoes, got a Toupe saddle on my CX bike and I love it actually, would love the S Works version but it's so over priced. So what are you going to do with the SLR? Selling it?

It's mounted on the wall of my bedroom at the moment in the name of art, but I may sell it... If anyone's keen make an offer.

S-Works Romin RRP $400.00 or something silly!

Hi...ChCh weenie here :)
Was one of Tayler's teachers so I laughed, before, while reading this thread. I have an addict similar to Tayler's tho my RED levers aren't as nicely tuned. I'll be trying hard to get it under 4kg these holidays (if I miss.....at least it'll give me a starting point for "the final assault"....lightest previous was 4.3kg but I ride my deep clinchers the most nowadays and they weigh more). Typically, I ride it at about 5kg
Updated: Racing again! Thought this was unlikely! Eventually, I may even have a decent race!
Edit: 2015: darn near won the best South Island series (got second in age
-group)..woo hoo Racy Theremery is back!!

i can think of a bunch of other people who I'd rather won the race. nonetheless he's a savvy rider and hopefully will have a good season in europe to show off the jersey.
don't rate the course change, penalises the good climbers too much (reta trotman and george bennett would have won if the course was the same as last year)

Totally agreed. If the course hasn't changed Bennett and Rita would have won.

I was lucky enough to once again be in the Neutral Support 2 Car. We followed break both days. Didn't do a single wheel change, helped Roman Van Uden with his 'off' on the second to last lap and apart from that got the best view in the house.

Hahaha! If you pull your shorts down a little bit more they'd blend into your tan/burn! :lol:

Haha it's hard to explain but

1) I'm not at all Maori.

2) I have never gotten sunburnt

Tan all year round, certainly draws attention when I sit down in public and my shorts ride up a little...
