My winter bib tights arrived but the leg length is too long, and everywhere is glued to my skin, so a perfect fit otherwise, I'm 5'11 with a 31" inseam. I always heard that your kit needs to stick to skin but there's a few stacks on the bottom of my leg of excess fabric, refund them or will it be OK?

Senior Liberal party figures and donors, including the party's federal treasurer, have reaped multi-million windfalls from the former Baillieu government's signature urban renewal project in inner Melbourne.

An investigation into the controversial Fishermans Bend project has found Liberals' honorary treasurer Andrew Burnes is among a slew of party activists and donors who either bought into the renewal precinct before it was rezoned or were long-term property owners that pressed for redevelopment of the area.

Others include auto dealer John Ayre...

Among them is Liberal party honorary treasurer Andrew Burnes, a close friend of former Federal treasurer Joe Hockey.

Mr Burnes and his travel company, Australian Outback Travel, donated at least $150,000 to the Liberals in the past 15 years, including $80,000 in the year 2013-2014.

He paid just over $7 million for new offices for his business at Laconia House at 179 Normanby Road, near the West Gate freeway in March 2012, the most expensive of about 80 land acquisitions in Fishermans Bend in the 16-month period between the drawing of the boundaries and the July...

The first site was Crown land gifted to the group in 2003 and they paid a mere $1.5 million for the second site in the 1990s; agents now value them around $80 million.

Mr Ayre is a shareholder of ULR Automotive, which donated $25,000 to the Liberals in 2013. He personally donated $13,500 in 2013-2014.

In the mid-1990s BRW rich lister and Liberal donor John Higgins paid $936,000 for a site at 297 Ingles Street that is now worth an estimated $15 million. He donated $25,000 to the Liberal party in 2013.

Some party donors bought in to Fishermans Bend after the rezoning, but have made significant paper profits under flexible height limits introduced by Mr Guy, now leader of the Victorian Liberal Party.

Notable among those donors is developer and Liberal supporter Bill McNee's company MaxVic Holdings, which paid $10.1 million for a Johnson Street site in 2014.

In May, this year McNee's development company VicLand won state government approval to build more than 1300 apartments across four towers on the site under rules established by Mr Guy.

It is now seeking to "flip" the site for an expected price of more than $70 million – a seven-fold increase on the purchase price.

Mr McNee's VicLand corporation donated $150,000 to the Liberals between 2012 and 2014.

Other Liberal donors to make windfalls include property veterans like the Buxton family (MAB Corporation) who had been sitting on low-value industrial land in South Melbourne for decades.

After paying $483,000 for a site in Gladstone Street site in the 1990s, MAB sold the site with a planning permit for three apartment towers in April this year for a price believed to be $37 million.

At the time the rezoning decision was made, there was no binding master plan, height limits, or any mechanism to capture any of the rise in property values to ultimately pay for the infrastructure and services of a residential community that could be large as the City of Ballarat.

Nor was there a strategy or funds for decontamination, transport, open space or affordable housing.

Instead, the rise in land values delivered billions of dollars in windfall to landowners.

Senior planners remain bemused as to why the large-scale rezoning at Fishermans Bend occurred when government-sponsored Docklands next door remained unfinished and planning had already started for publicly-owned sites in North Melbourne and E Gate in West Melbourne.

Property industry sources are adamant that one of the reasons was the influence of some long-standing landholders...

I own a Brompton. If you actually live in a cramped apartment, need it to fold under your work desk, want to do a multi-modal commute a train, bus or get your bike transported in almost any car, you did good. If not: no. While the Brompton is an amazing ride given its design compromises required to fold, it does not compare to a full sized bicycle of a similar price.

Hi /n/, got a question for you

In terms of fuel efficiency and general capacity, what would be the best airliner to replace the E-3 sentry?

Its airframe is based off the Boeing 707 which is a pretty old design and the E-3s themselves were introduced 40 years ago. So what features do you think would be important? I hear twin engines are more efficient but wouldn't 4 better for redundancy since this is a military aircraft?

I'm looking for a good starter bike with some beginner mistakes toleration which is also fun to ride, I've heard the CBR250R is a good one for starters

I might take little tours on the bike, so a bike with touring capabilities would be good

Will this bike finally bring all the advantages of recumbents to luddite upright riders? Honestly this thing just seems like the perfect design, it's too bad that the UCI will hold it down, because if the market were determined by the best designs everyone would be on one of these by next year. It's called the Bird of Prey and yes, I already have mine on order and will report on it when I receive it.

While accelerating the steering is a lot better but definitely not 100%

That's a columbus dove. That means it is nice. I think it's probably just a conventional kind, and you're missing the plates that clamp either side of the saddle rails and that that bolt threads into. You might find parts that will work on it at a bike co-op / second hand bike shop. It's short as fuck though, you might want something longer anyway. It probably has the side printed on it, but if it doesn't measure it with calipers (cheap from an autoparts store, get mechanical ones). There's a small chance it isn't the correct size post for...
