So I saw everyone was buying the Magicshine lights a while ago.
Even though I've had my Aye ups upgraded, I'm not really happy with them when I'm training on the road.
I have some powerfull homemade lights that I use for Mtb events but I'm looking for a cheap light I can put on and take off the road bike quickly.
Is everyone happy with the Magicshines and are they more powerful than the Aye ups?
Cheers in advance,
I acquired a Garmin Edge 500 to replace my bulky looking 705 and thought it would look quite racey to buy some of the Barfly mounts, the ones that place the unit in front of the stem rather than on top.
While it looks pretty slick and works well on the road bike, its not so practical on my Mtb.
I discovered this when I smacked into a tree at a race and broke the connecting tabs off the mounting plate on the underside of the unit.
I went into this race having no idea what time i was going to do as i wasn't here for it last year and had a shocker (for no apparent reason) the year before.
I knew i was fitter than previous years but having had a throat virus for about 4 weeks in the lead up i knew my training hadn't gone exactly to plan.
I arrived just before dark on Friday and set up camp with my riding Buddies from Manly.
Found a tool on the ground at The Dam on Saturday.
PM me with a good description and come grab it from me!

My last 4 rides won't upload onto strava and it's only showing my last ride as the 19/12/2012.
My garmin says different and is showing the four rides in its history.
I've tried quite a few times and strava wont pick anything up after the 19th.
I cleared all history a few weeks ago on the Garmin so i know there's no issue with it being full.
Any advice please?
For those that don't know me. I work with wood and computers are the Devils work so none of this Gpx file and tech talk with me please!
I've broke a rear spoke on a Mavic Crossmax ST wheel and am finding it acpain to find a replacement.
Can anyone suggest a shop they know in Sydney(North) that deals with Mavic?
Or an even longer shot, has anyone got a spare spoke, maybe from a damaged/old/worn out Crossmax ST?
Thanks in advance,

Martine and I did this event last year and all i'll say, It was one of the best and most fun events of 2011 and on an awesome 10km loop of switchback singletrack heaven!
Needless to say, We're going back down this year to compete again.
I havn't bought a Mtb magazine for a couple of years now as most of the info i ever need and ever read is on the net.
Last Thursday i signed up for a subcription with Flow MTB, It's a new online Australian mag with regular updates and stories of current Mtb stuff in Oz and around the globe.
All the local trail updates are showing green but this is probably due to no one riding in the last few days.
Anyone got a heads up on the state of the trails this morning?
The Dam? Terrey Hills? Red Hill? Cascades?
Anyone on the northern beaches got a new 10 speed xt or xtr rear derailer lying around that I could take off them, then return with a new one next week?
I know it's a long shot but I dont have any time to be driving round looking for one and have a race on Sunday.
