- 2014 Boardman CX Team... Does it do what it says on the tin?1 day 11 hours agoIf the bearings were rusted
If the bearings were rusted out, the bearing races are probably toast too. These hubs are disposable items and although "serviceable" will probably be shagged way in advance of your first "I'm going to check and service that hub tomorrow" thought... The reason being that the seals seem to be purely cosmetic.
The good news is that you can swap in a Shimano xt hub and reuse the rim and spokes. Either diy it or get a wheelbuilder to put it together. Total cost of doing this will be 50-60 quid and give you a better wheel than the one you started with.
- Rapha lightweight or super lightweight jersey1 day 11 hours agoAll year round in the UK
All year round in the UK unlikely but possible with the lightweight.
I like the sky pro jersey much better than all of their other jersey with regards to technology, fit and comfort. The only thing I don't like about it is the logos but I can live with that as long as it is comfortable and functional.
If you get really hot then try the sky climbers pro jersey.

Fwiw I'm a fat bastard at 105kgs and run 23s @120psi. Will investigate 25s When these need replacing, I'm curious to see what all the fuss is about. All I hear is lower pressure more comfort equal or more Speed. We shall see.

I have all bibs of all price range. You name it and I recently bought the DHB Pro for £57 and I recommend them. I am now wearing one and I love them and all my other bibs (Asos, Castili, Rapha) are now backup.
I thinks the pattern design can be better and more classic like rapha but other than that it is absolutely value for money.

I'm particularly interested in comment by fukawitribe. You make it sound straight forward, on what experience?
I've only had direct experience the other way around hence the caveated comment - I run an 11-speed Ultegra groupset with 10-speed FSA K-Force Lite chainset (which works beautifully) but i've also looked around for advice before that. One good source of information has been velonews, e.g.
- search for '11 speed compatibility' on that site and you'll find quite a bit of information regarding it, mostly from the highly knowledgable Lennard Zinn, including dimensions and real-world experiences from others. I'm sure there's other info sources just a Google or two away but these answered my immediate questions.
- Schwalbe One Tubeless1 day 12 hours agoI've now done 50 miles on
I've now done 50 miles on these exact tyres and can give a subjective view on their 'feel'. I run Conti Grand Prix GT on my other bike and the difference is noticable.
The One is an extremely fast tyre, rolling resistance is amazing. The difference is that you CAN feel the thicker rubber. If I had to describe the top Conti's as having a 'creamy' smoothness to the ride, I'd describe the smoothness of the Ones as 'rubbery' smoothness.
Both very fast tyres but the Ones feel faster but 'rubberier'. A subjective view certainly but quite accurate I feel.

any feedback on bearing durability? and the fact that they are non user serviceable.
I've had no problems replacing the bearings on Iclic 2 racers or xpresso 6s. As for durability, I've done thousands of miles on 4s, 6s, 10s and 12s (I have a lot of bikes) and only the 6s needed a new bearing on the right pedal after some seriously foul weather riding over winter.
I've had no dramas with any of mine and have been riding Time for years.

Another way of looking at this might be to assume that there is a kid waiting behind every gate and ride accordingly.

It is only by good fortune that the child was not more seriously injured. At that speed she certainly could have been killed or suffered life-changing injuries. Holland shouldn't have been on the pavement and, more importantly, shouldn't have been going so fast whilst on it.
Define "fast" and "life-changing injuries". I got hit by a taxi travelling at speed (probably over 40mph closing speed), lost a kidney amongst all the other trauma.
What if it had been a mobility scooter, road sweeper or me jogging along at 12mph? Perspective can be useful, this is just an unfortunate accident, he wasn't issuing the toddler with a punishment pass. Who would expect a kid to come running out in front of you?

And yes, that kid should have been under control.

Nothing wrong at all with the headline. The word collision has no connotation of blame, it's simply one or more moving objects coming together with force.
