    we have a meeting room at work which houses a nintendo wii and x-box. i cheekily suggested starting a wii sports bowing league for fitness/team building (tongue firmly in my cheek), and, to my surprise, management gave it a ringing endorsement.

    only trouble is that in a practice session last friday i smashed the record for the office wii, so i'm in danger of looking like i've suggested the idea just to show off.

    do i throw it if i look like winning?
     
  2. No. Just wii all over the oppo. Job done.:biggrin:

    naa, give the other's something to work for.

    on a similar note, we started a bit of a commuting league for cycling, and we made a leaderboard that also showed our carbon savings. we've got a trophy for the winner each year. i'm determined to win it this year. last year was our first year and there were only 5 of us. now more people are joining the competition this year.

    You should also run a prize for the most pointless weight-saving purchase. e.g. has anyone splashed out on carbon bar-end-plugs, for instance?

    last time i was in lbs i was in the queue behind a big bloke buying two carbon fibre bottle cages for £70.

    hope he didn't spoil the weight reduction over alu by putting drinks bottles in them :eek:

    I just don't see the point of that. I've tried to understand. But I can't. Why?

    End plugs are daft, but carbon bar ends are good as your hands don't weld to frozen metal in the winter.

    the worlds best carbon bottle cage costs about fifteen quid. Perhaps you should tell them.....

    Titanium bottle cage bolts.:evil:

    And no, I'm not making this up. They came on a Raleigh Dynatech bike I once had.
     
  11. The weight of my old Dawes Galaxy (the heaviest of all my bikes) pales into insignificance when compared to my own 15 stone plus bulk. Carbon bottle cages or titanium bolts would make no difference at all.
