So really 3 desirable copies: #0008, #0088 and #0888

Agree that I don't like the term "investment", I rather prefer "collection", and it just happens to appreciate. At least for now. 3% is in...

In nominal or real terms? In nominal dollar terms, its fairly difficult to "lose" value, due to inflation. A Rolex Submariner in 1957 costs...

Agree, was about to comment same. Price is good yes, but the full price on chrono24 is around $350 so not as big a discount as the RRP.
25/05/2022 - 16:14
well, to beat a 4.15%pa for 5 yrs, which starts paying/compounding from today, the rate needs to be a lot more than 4.15% in the latter...

ah I see. That's great news - I only switch to eco now and again to check on what the range expansion I'd get so haven't really paid too...

Agree with the comments above - its dead weight when riding without the pedal assist. However, the Eco mode is sort of the bailout option -...

agree Bosch activeline is not bad at all. I have a cube hybrid which i commute with. I never really get into a situation where there is not...

given ebikes are heavier and bigger, it has less indoor storage options when compared with pushbikes. My office uses bike hooks which rules...
13/05/2022 - 13:06
pretty much yes. but its price point is where u'd pay the same for AliExpress, but get it delivered much quicker and have the option of...

Saw this over the weekend in my local Aldi as well, grabbed 2x each of the cleaners and 1x chain lube

I think restocking comes in batches. I walk past that store every few days as I work in the city and there is nobody queuing up, and yet...

I like the feature of showing the count of the cars. Typically I hear the first car, head check but hard to know if it is fully clear.
20/04/2022 - 19:59
I also looked it up, it is quite neat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhRVOV09yM4 with a Garmin head unit, it shows green dot for safe, and...

Also spotted this deal (as in the 'chill25' code) and ordered 2x Moon Cerberus rear lights. Although, the thing is that Pushys prices it at...

I have two Decathlon bikes - CF900 & RC520, amongst others which reside in a higher price bracket. My stance is that Decathlon's higher-end...

The gong ride just got postponed to November.. but good deal nonetheless
13/04/2022 - 10:55
Had the brakes even been a mechanical disc, it would tip the scales into a 'value for money' territory whereas the V-brakes makes it feel...

People do build them - Monitor + Raspberry Pi + two way glass : https://all3dp.com/2/raspberry-pi-magic-mirror-smart-best-project/
06/04/2022 - 20:21
Correct, no Aust maps - my firsthand experience. You can find the maps for free - the map data is from OpenStreetMaps, they need to be...
06/04/2022 - 18:36
yes that's the one I used too, I couldn't recall its name until your comment. And that's the issue with going down this route, relying on...
06/04/2022 - 18:30
but its not aero. Aero is everything!
06/04/2022 - 13:37
Yep - I bought this back in Nov (Amazon UK), and found it didn't come with Aust maps. I ended up using some website to extract OSM in the...

Was referring to the helmet light
03/04/2022 - 18:32
I meant the rating label on the pump itself (or the attached paper, can't remember). I think in practice it could go up to the higher...

Its also a weird design choice where they opted to customize the frame with an integrated battery, but not disc brake mounts.
03/04/2022 - 16:45
My only gripe is that it is not rated for 100psi (ie road bike tyres). It might work, but I have been only using it on my MTB
03/04/2022 - 16:38
My thoughts on some of these items from personal experience: - The helmet: Unless they upgraded it since, the light uses a CR1632 button...
