Re: So I just got a power meter..

... I take it this kind of inconsistency is normal, but my main reason for getting the power meter was to better manage my pacing in the face of headwinds/gradients etc. As I understand it, the transition from fat to glucose burning is nonlinear, so if you're trying to hypermile your glycogen const...

Re: May has gone - ding dong the utter, utter, total failure of a prime minister is gone

UK has had an Etonian prime minister for 101 years out of 298 it has had prime minister. BoJo will be #20. johnson is an opportunist with a record of lies, incompetence and betrayal, and as a plus for those who wanted an end to the 'elite' running roughshod over them, he's claiming he'll reduce the...

Re: Crampfix/Hotshots any experience?

from the website Instead of treating the cramping muscle itself as most commonly done, CrampFix® treats the OVERACTIVE NERVES that are causing the muscles to cramp. surely if it did that, it'd need to be subject to regulation as a drug but wait, there's more!

Re: BREXIT - Ich Bin Auslander

scrutiny? this is politics

the only thing the tory party cares about is fighting off farage, it's a race to the bottom, they'd happily elect ian brady if they thought he'd do it best (and he hadn't been cremated)
