Did we miss your birthday last year? You must be close to becoming an adult now. Have a double great day!

Happy birthday, Stumpy.

Thanks guys, wasn't too shabby! Powertap currently sitting in customs, so hopefully they let that one through without a bill!

Mmm thought I might treat myself as I wore through my rear rim the other day! Ive had a lean last couple of years but it would've done 200k km's at least, surprised the front one hasn't gone yet as I don't brake much on the back! Apparently I needed to declare that I was importing it though, so hopefully they get the forms I'm sending back today, otherwise they will auction it off!!!!! Had some kit coming form China too so hopefully they don't twig on that it's the same person at a different address, otherwise this could get expensive! On a side note, counterfeit jersey and knicks for 60 dollars shipped...will report back once I've received it.

Pity about the customs. :( A friend of a friend bought a used road and then more recently a used track SRM from OS had both slip through without getting picked up. :wink: He was very lucky there!

As to the team kit, will interested in your review. Unfortunately what little I have read about these is the quality is poor. With the strong AU$ and often free or low priced shipping from OS you can pick up kit reasonably priced.

I'm not expecting a lot, but figure if the jersey is half decent it's worth it for that. I'm just hoping that that package hasn't got stopped now that the powertap one has been held up.

Managed to get myself sick again so have only had a couple of plays with it, but it's pretty interesting stuff. Apparently I live on a 3km climb with a 24% section :lol: I've had an ankle injury for over a year that's stopped me from getting any sort of fitness so it will be interesting to see what numbers I can pull out once I get a few solid weeks under my belt.

Not good news about being sick again or the ankle injury... Hopefully both get better soon!
