This was bought in mid 2012 (july I think) and only used for the sum total of 1xIM (Outlaw 2013), and 2xOD in good weather. This is a fantastic wheel in really good, newly new condition and has barely any noticeable marking to the braking surface and these are in near new condition having been very well cared for. The wheel has never been crashed or suffered any damage. It is the original colour black with Red and White

The details of the F6R are here:

Looking for £200 for this wheel, will come with skewers, wheel bag, conti tub (sprinter or competition can't remember) which again has only done the milage this wheel has and the FFwd Swisstop yellow brake pads that came with it minor wear from the light usage (after all, who uses brakes in a tri???).

Available for collection in SE London/City only - I'm not going to post it as that is a real fricken ball ache frankly.

Will post pics as soon as I can take some.

Yep, twice a day...Oh I see what you mean.

yes it will, 10 minutes is a lot or time to take but then, that's pretty much the amount that has been knocked off the record this year. given the right course, the right conditions and the right athlete hitting their absolute peak, then yes it will happen. I would estimate that it will take an athlete who is clearly head and shoulders above the rest of the field, like Chrissie is in the womens field - hell, give her the right course and maybe Chrissie can do it herself! see conversation

Which one fits better? Which one do you like the look of? if the answer is the same - get that one! see conversation

You say you felt you were overreaching - could it not just be that a change of stem would sort you out? I changed the stem on mine from a 130mm, to 1 90mm and sorted all the problems i had with being a bit stretched - sine my back has loosened and i can stretch it a bit more i've gone back to the 130 but that's beside the point.

sorry to hear you had trouble, i 53 would seem a bit small for someone your size, but did they measur you at the time you bought it? If they had plenty in stock it would seem strange to intentionally sell you the 'wrong' size, particularly as i always found them very nice and helpful whenever i went into the shop see conversation

I think that IronKav (who i've not seen about here for a while) suffered the same before IMCH last year. not sure how far out it waas - it may well have been more than 45 days. But he managed to do the race, and finished. Not sure if he's still about here to give any details though see conversation

If you are only going to get one, then get a road bike. You can do a tri/du on a roadie, but training on a tri bike on open roads can be a bit hairraising. You are far from either the brakes or the gears at all times (unless you get Di2 and if you can afford that then get 2 red carbon bikes and stop f*(king about! ) so if you have a driver pull out on you, you'd better hope that you are not in the aero position or you may just find you can't stop/won't get near the brake levers before you are over the bonnet of the car. Alternatively, going up hills if you find you are not in the right gear/need to change down - reaching to the end of teh aerobars to change can be a bit wobbly (you'll probably be ok given background)and if there is a clunky change that makes it worse. a Road bike negates both these problems, and you will be reasonably fast on it. see conversation

I no longer have this problem since i stopped doing OW swimming, or any swimming for that matter, I've found not swimming to be the most effective way of avoiding steamed up goggles.

But if you insist on swimming then maybe you could try making your face cooler (dunking) before putting goggles on and cooling the goggles (dunking) before spitting - also try not to eat any chocolate before spitting as that makes the goggles look a bit unsavoury (yes i unfortunately did once) see conversation

depends on your legs really. Both of mine use a 12-25 with the roadie being a compact ont he front and the tri bike being a standard double. however occasionally (read often) i struggle with hills on the roadie because i don't do enough training, once i'm trained a 25 is generally enough for most situations, just sit and spin and fight and swear and enforce your will over gravity. see conversation
