Altura’s Urban 17 briefcase pannier is yet another of those clever ideas that demolishes the image of the sweaty disorganised commuter cyclist. So called because it comfortably swallows the larger 17- inch laptops, it marries a host of bike and office friendly features in a smart, practical fashion.
Hello all. Apologies if this has been asked and answered recently, but I couldn't see anything similar. Currently commuting to work (20-25 miles round trip) and looking for some new wheels to do it on. However, very limited budget (in bike terms) of £500, and that's the absolute max. So was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Noticed the lower end of the Specialized Sirrus range scrapes in under the mark, but I know next to nothing about road bikes (transferring from MTB) so I don't know if there's better value for money out there.
Things are hotting up on my power commute to work and I think it is time to clip in but I don't know what shoes to get? I used to have spd's on my mountain bike so I am used to being clipped in. My gripe is that Look type cleats are impossible to walk in but road shoes look so much better than chunky mountain bike shoes with tractor tyre grips. What is a nice, understated road shoe that I can walk in and looks cool? And what sort of pedals will I need? I like to be able to use my bike without always having to put special shoes on also. Am I asking too much?!
My name's Matt and I'm working on behalf of Nokia on a competition that asked hackers and modders to push Nokia's new handset, N900, to its limits. The judges picked the three best submissions and one of those was a 'Bike Dashboard' that allows users to track GPS, take pics and use the integrated speedometer amongst other features.
Just wanted to get some feedback from you guys and to let you know over the next few weeks that the team behind 'Bike Dashboard' (BrettSarahTops) will be building their prototype in time to present to a panel of judges at CITA expo in Vegas.
I need a bit of advice. I had an accident on the way to work this morning. I was cycling along a road when a man wheeling his bike, walked out between two cars. I couldn’t stop and rode straight into his bike. I have the usual grazes bruising and cut and my clothing is damaged. The guy was extremely apologetic and tried to be as helpful as possible even inviting me into his house for a cup of tea (it happened right outside his house). We exchanged details and I carried on my journey as somehow my bike was damaged.
As advertised on eBay.
Please look into it it's a very good quality bike.
Hi guys and girls,
I have around £1500 and really like the Bianchi 1885 with Alu frame and carbon forks.
Though i have also seen the cento strada for a bit more money but is full carbon.
I like the styling of the 1885 more, they both have the same group sets, and i would like some advice from poeple that has experiance on what they wink is best. Will i really get much more fun out of full carbon, or for the type of riding i do will i really notice.
