Ultimate Hubber

Ultimate Hubber (6/6)

  1. And then what bugs me the most.............the riders that did "learn" last year are not included this you to capitalize on what they have "learned" previously.
  2. Would oom mind terribly to share some strava files? Would love to see the routes and area and do some planning myself
  3. I LOVE that idea. But only because I don't have a TT bike For me they can even throw in a hill climb up Taalmonument instead of the TT (on a road bike). If they want to do TT, do a prologue the night before the first day.........just for starters orders and jersey wearers like back in the day with the Giro del Capo. Back in 2007 prologue the evening before stage 1
  4. Hosting a UCI 2.2 or 2.1 event, you have to give food and lodging if I remember correctly? https://www.uci.org/docs/default-source/rules-and-regulations/part-ii-road/2-roa-regulations-e.pdf
  5. TP= Training Peaks. Paid desktop software GC= Golden Cheetah. Desktop software. Personally I use GC. Works very well for what I want to know about my rides. And it's seemingly smooth operation. Walk into the house. Garmin auto uploads via Wifi to Garmin and to Strava. From there when I op GC, it auto downloads my ride.
  6. Lately there were a couple of fun "events" hosted by PEMBI on Strava. Prizes were given sometimes on luck and sometimes on fitness (being the fastest on the segment). This drew a couple of participants to get out there and ride their bikes with prizes bigger than most big name races in the country. Sponsors got some publicity an riders had some fun. Not a bad platform to do this on.
  7. This. Strava was never a training tool. Social media for active people. If you are serious about fitness and training and stats, you do TP or GC.
  8. After copious amounts of research, I settled on the idea that it was very frame specific. There are people that put the groupset on and it just works from the get-go without event thinking about reading the manual. To say that I tried to make it work is an understatement. There was rides where I went out for hours and adjusting and trying new things. Nothing worked. I just gave up after a year. Sadly. Cost me a fortune to replace...........😪
  9. But we digress. The Evo SE looks the business. 😎 Definitely on my shopping list. Fortunately we have a lot of time to save up...........
  10. Sold my 4 months old SRAM AXS Red groupset for half the price because the brakes failed three times and 4 bike shops were unable to fix the front derailleur chain drop. If you read up on it, various people across the world have the chain drop issue. 2 of my other friends are waiting months now for replacement of the front AXS shifter as the brakes fade within 2 months. The last straw for me was this month when my brand new Zipp 353 hub failed after 500km and I had to wait 3 months for a replacement hub and even then the local dealer charged me transport fees because "shipping is not covered under warranty claims". This on 'n RRP R80 000 wheelset. What a joke. Fooled me a couple of times now. Not again.
