    There's a giant ahead of us!

    Though you all might get a laugh out of this shot...

    I know I'm a lot bigger than the other guys - but the angle of the photo makes me look like a giant!!




    Taken on Tuesday night at our weekly world champs. This was the last one of our Summer season - and was a mixed ability Team Time Trial. (we came 3rd)

    I see why they like drafting behind me now...

    It does seem you are being pursued by the Lollipop Guild...

    I'm 6'4" ish.. (6' 3.75", but I round off)... you look a lot taller than I visualize myself being. I ride a 61cm road bike. What size is that? Is it a Zinn?

    Good spotting! Yep it's a custom built Zinn Dolomite Titanium beasty...

    Not sure what size it would be as the bottom bracket is build higher than normal to accomodate the 210mm cranks.

    So I'm never sure how to answer that question...

    It aint the angle bro, your Fawking HUGE!!!! I'm 6'3" 245. you've gotta be around 260-275. I see your from New Zealand, did you ever play rugby? You need to come to America and get a tryout to play Defensive End!!!!

    Rugby is compulsory in NZ

    Yep I used to play - was good enough to try out for the All Blacks a few times - but never quite made it to that very top level. Played at provincial level though (top level below playing for the country).

    It's a distant memory nowadays though.

    And yep - 275.
