Everything is priced differently in every country. Haven't you ever bought a coffee in Japan before?

The Tephra Ti SL is double butted Reynolds Titanium, the Ti is Ancotech straight guage. The Reynolds tubeset costs an absolute packet. The 6-4 version is even more....as in....downtube is 250 bucks.

Bloody hell. My local doctors office is free. Bulkbilled GP's, CT scans, ultrasound, pathology... no gap. Is that what a CT scan really costs?

Sucks that SBS coverage doesn't start until 10pm. We have already missed the HC climb over the Tourmelet. From the cycling news live rport it looks like a few boys are doing it tuff today.

Sucks even more that we have to put up Garry Gatt and a half hour of absolute drivel before we get to any cycling. Why can't we just go straight into cycling? And while I'm on a roll, why the hell can't they show some of the stages in their entirety?
