- Kinesis launch Aithein in limited edition anodised finish1 year 3 weeks agoWe went through 5 p.types
We went through 5 p.types before settling on this one and I think it's the best compromise of performance and comfort. Oli loves his and has been on plenty of long rides on it, although he really likes it for it's direct feel and ability on punchy climbs and fast, twisty descents. The Aithein really is designed for the type of riding you describe, but substitute crits for sportives ; ]

Garmin in 4th with 12 teams yet to finish including BMC and Movistar. Never listen to me.

Wow, figured you'd be watching this thread Dom but didnt expect a response that quick!
I definitely prefer to get a move on, going on fast club runs/chain gangs/club 10's/sportives etc. It will be my weekend/summer bike rather than anything more utilitarian. I'm just looking to find out whether I can live with it. To put it another way, it doesn't need to be a Porsche with all the luxuries, but I'm not after a ridiculously focused F1 car either!
Thanks for any advice.

- Kinesis launch Aithein in limited edition anodised finish1 year 3 weeks agoHi notfastenough, road.cc
Hi notfastenough, road.cc will be the first to receive a review bike. The Aithein is designed primarily for speed, response, powerful climbing and aggressive descents, it's not specifically made for comfort over distance [we have other frames in our range for this].
So it just depends where your priorities lie I guess, although we have had a few riders testing the p.types over many miles [road and race] with no complaints. In fact Oli, MD of Morvelo has swapped his carbon frame for one!

Bristol, Bath & NE Somerset and South Gloucestershire's bid is in the link below. The remaining West of England Partnership local authority, North Somerset, didn't join the bid, for reasons which remain unclear but may be related to a discernable lack of enthusiasm for cycling (or cyclists) within the Council's leadership team.

- Two cyclists killed in collision with lorry on A30 in Cornwall believed to riding Land's End - John O'Groats (Updated)1 year 3 weeks agoI live in the next village
I live in the next village from the accident and i saw these two guys a couple of miles to the east . At the accident point the road is two lanes, is flat and visibility was fine at the time.
I wince everytime I see riders on this road its so busy .
I would advise anyone doing the end to end to take roads to the north or south but avoid the A30 at all cost .
Very sad news and my thoughts go out to the families
My sister just heard the news and rang to see if I was ok .

Boasson Hagen (SKY)
Hoping for an OPQS win with 1,2 on GC then Gerrans and Movistar to do well. Got EBH and Millar in case Sky/Garmin manage to do well and they should be up there in the GC too. Also hoping FDJ might sneak into the top 10.
Like most others I haven't got any BMC and if they win today I'll be screwed.
- Forme launch junior race bike range under Formeula brand1 year 3 weeks agoInteresting. They are VERY
Interesting. They are VERY similar to the equivalent Islabike in price and spec. Getting the extra set of tyres thrown in is a good deal mind. They haven't published weights yet -- interested to see how they compare with the Luath range.
I do like the 'bling' anodised bits though, as I'm sure the kids will. Silver spoke nipples or red ones? Red every time

This will look awesome in orange or green. So, Kinesis seem to fairly decent with you guys - any ETA on a review bike? I'm in the market for a new frame now, and think its reasonable to expect good levels of stiffness and handling, but also want to know its not going to beat me up on a 100 mile ride before I buy.
- Two cyclists killed in collision with lorry on A30 in Cornwall believed to riding Land's End - John O'Groats (Updated)1 year 3 weeks agoIts 3 lanes going uphill. I
Its 3 lanes going uphill. I have no knowledge of speed limiters on lorrys and how they work but I'm pretty sure I've seen them driving at more than 56 mph. I'm also guessing exactly where the incident happened so don't know whether it was on the hill or on the flat section just before it. I agree that the cyclists may have been in the wrong place, it's probably the most unpleasant road to cycle on in Cornwall I can think of.
- Vulpine Men's Merino Alpine jersey1 year 3 weeks agoIt is a lovely jersey. I
It is a lovely jersey. I bough one last Friday and wore it for a 100km ride Sunday.
The inability to carry anything in the pockets is a pretty big flaw though. I have other merino jerseys which are heavier weight and they can sag a bit when loaded but I was constantly sitting on the contents of my pockets on Sunday. They do mention this on the product page on their site but I think they should look at ways to improve this. Moving the pockets further up and/or anchoring them with seams up the back would probably help.
If you are riding any distance you need a decent size saddlebag or something as it currently stands.

This is sad news. That section of the A30 has 3 lanes and the Fraddon turning is on quite a hill so drivers often try and get some speed up so they can make it up the hill without having to change down. As the incident happended just before the hill I wouldnt be surprised if speed was a factor.
If it's 3 lanes, going downhill then why would you say speed is a factor especially when lorries are limited to 56? ***
From the description given it would appear that the cyclists were tragically in the wrong place.
*** Although the limit on an A road is 50 for lorries the limiter still means it would be difficult to exceed 56mph.
As I understand it, the limiters restrict the power to the engine so downhill it's quite easy to get above 56mph, particularly if you coast I believe. I doubt speed was the main cause though. On that sort of road drivers (myself included) will just be in cruise control mode, expecting just to maintain a high speed and just be on the watch for brake lights.
The A2 in Kent is an even worse example of a motorway by another name. There's a decent cycle path running parallel with it though so absolutely no need for cyclists to be on the A2. It should be something we see as standard on roads like this, not only to avoid tragic incidents like this one but to make getting from A to B by bike more practical.
