Interview: Jill Kintner on Not Competing at Crankworx Rotorua, Tackling New Challenges & Finding Motivation
@dro-cfr: Even not being T1D I have found that a change to a more fat/ protein based diet and less carbs I have a far longer fuel endurance than I used to have and do not need to snack during rides anymore. Worth the effort to experiment and see what works for you.

Review: Enve’s M735E Wheelset Fails Our Test
"First, there is this concept around perfection that consistently comes up whenever anything goes wrong with an ENVE product based on the price of our products. Let’s be clear, perfection is a myth. For ENVE, it’s certainly the goal, but we’ve never pinned a label on ourselves claiming we are perfect. Quite the contrary, we strive daily to be better in all aspects, but it’s a journey and we don’t mask the imperfections of our products behind a façade of filler and paint. That said, it puts that much more responsibility on our QC teams who are people and sometimes people make mistakes. Should Paul have received a rim with a fiber peel and imperfectly drilled spoke holes? Absolutely not. When we screw up, we own it and take care of the customer no questions asked. It is ENVE’s long-standing warranty and leading reputation for customer support that has forced the carbon wheel market to offer the aggressive lifetime warranties that they do today." Except that 'mistake' at QC costs the $3K wheelset buyer another 2-3 weeks missed riding time, which ight be critical if they are a professional biker (guide, reviewer, racer) unless they also have the money to own a back up set of wheels (which I used to have when I was riding ENVE). I have been riding on another brand's wheels for two hard years now and I no longer feel the need to keep a 'back up' set of alloy wheels to cover me for warranty repairs.

2 x Shimano XTR Di2 SM-BTR2-1 Batteries. $100 EACH Some more bumpf about them: https://www.greatbikenorth.ca/products/shimano-bt-dn110-di2-internal-battery?variant=9159165247540&utm_campaign=gs-2018-11-15&utm_source=google&utm_medium=smart_campaign&gclid=Cj0KCQiAkfriBRD1ARIsAASKsQJxxFCUocRNmVkaHGHBqPwlHAMC5KfF6EzzPXs1r6rzSCTGz0EpJKEaAi26EALw_wcB They are both in excellent condition and both have had firmware updates. One has been charged eight times and the other twice (main and spare). This was used on my bike for a year until I upgraded to the Bluetooth compatible battery in order to be able to program/ trouble shoot with the smart phone app. The spare was a "just in case" battery for races/ travelling overseas where it is hard to find a Di2 part if things break. These are great to have as a back up for any slightly older Di2 system. Firm price, local sale preferred. I will post but the sale price, postal costs and the paypal fee are all the responsibility of the buyer.

2 x Shimano Di2 XTR SC-M9050 display. $90 EACH Some info from Shimano: https://r2-bike.com/SHIMANO-XTR-Di2-Information-Display-SC-M9050-30g This is the version that DOES NOT have the built in bluetooth that allows one to program with the smartphone app. Hence the sale at the cheaper price. Firm price, local sale preferred. I will post but the sale price, postal costs and the paypal fee are all the responsibility of the buyer.

Shimano Di2 XTR SM-BTC1 bottle cage battery holder https://bike.shimano.com/en-EU/product/component/xtr-m9050-di2/SM-BTC1.html This allows a battery to be mounted externally on those frames that do not have a place for the Di2 battery designed into them (most frames) and where the rider does not want to use the PRO Tharsis stem and bars that allow the battery to be mounted in the fork steerer. Brand new, mounted but not used outside the workshop as I designed a different internal mounting solution for my bike. Firm price, local sale preferred. I will post but the sale price, postal costs and the paypal fee are all the responsibility of the buyer.

https://bike.shimano.com/en-EU/product/component/ultegra-r8050-di2/SM-PCE1.html The gubbins you need to connect a PC, running Shimano e-tube project software, to a Di2 system for shop level trouble shooting, programming and firmware updates. Brand new, never used as I failed to appreciate that it cannot run off a Mac so I ended up getting customisation and firmware updates done at a local shop. Firm price, local sale preferred. I will post but the sale price, postal costs and the paypal fee are all the responsibility of the buyer.
