The Knowledge / Re: Direct Mount brakes
« Last post by citoyen on Today at 11:06:52 am »
Does anyone remember what benefits Shimano claimed at the introduction of these brakes in 2012? I did search the web but gave up after discovering that (a) Shimano introduced them (b) in 2012.

I was wondering this myself so I did some googling of my own. It seems they developed them in response to a request from Fuji, if I've understood correctly.

I suspect Brucey is right - they are a fad that will go away within a few years.

Apparently one of the potential benefits of AI is that processes can seek all possible solutions rather than the obvious or mundane. 

Computer it say 'No!' maybe a thing of the past one day.  As may computer programmers as we know them.

Just think how fast he could go if he wasn't ill enough to need treatment.

I was thinking much the same thing while listening to the report on the radio this morning. They were saying he had a severe asthma attack so was taking the medication on doctor's advice... was it doctor's advice to take enough medicine to make sure he could win the race? Some serious cognitive dissonance going on at Team Sky.

CTL is, I think expressed as TSS/day so eventually a weekly TSS of 280 would stabilise with a CTL of around 40, I think. It's a longer term rolling average than weekly, though.

The Pub / Re: Is it bullying?

In reply to the original question,I would suggest that at the moment, your boss's actions don't amount to bullying but they do show him as someone who is insensitive and almost incapable of understanding your position.
Is there no-one  who can act as referee between you both and  explain the situation to him in simple language so that he can help you, help himself and stop being a pain?

Your Mum forgets your birthday.
I remember the first time my mother forgot my birthday, I was gutted. Now I'd be happy if she just recognised me. :(

My mother-in-law asked my wife about me last time she (wife) visited her "What happened to that Australian you were living with? We worried about you and him. Only the dregs were sent to Australia."

It's a good one ... but they were never going to match last issue's cover picture.

Someone you know?
As it happens, yes; but I just think it's a good pic. :)

Nice scenery, lighting, bike, accesories ...

Googling for KFAUWI - this is an Amazon Fire tablet.
Has someone in the past connected a Fire tablet to your network?
