    Ha - my ninth is Millar as well! I thought he might try to get in a break on 18 or 19, and ended up keeping him to the end.

    When this grown man is battering himself for 60 minutes, subjecting himself to huge amounts of agony to better a record, I think he is allowed whatever motivation he wants. It may be considered purile in another setting, but is excusable, even understandable, in this one.

    isn't it the apparent lack of coverage which is the issue here though?

    Thank you: I'm hear all week.

    Same gag was effectively made in the opening paragraph of the story.

    You're not exactly Tommy Cooper.

    That'll teach me to comment without reading. I'll get me coat.

    You need to brush up on your English grammar as well as your humour, I assume you mean "here" all week and not "hear"?

    Blimey, some folk love to complain. Won't answer an email asking for a review, but takes the time to change password, email, and post on Twitter and Facebook, and now the forum of at least one cycling website (even though you were happy with their service). Strange behaviour!

    Quite how anyone thought this was a good idea baffles me. However there was someone who knew the international coverage it would get so they certainly knew what they were doing. The women in the team who I am sure had no say so in wearing this must have been mortified and highly offended as @spin sugar has already pointed out. When will we move into the 21st century as a sport?

    Amusing? Try and put yourself in the cycling shoes of these young women. As if they don't have it hard enough trying to make a career in this sport, they've had to decide on wearing this shite vs breaching contracts and consequently become a laughing stock. I don't think it's very amusing at all, I think it's extremely sad and disappointing.

  • Upgrade wheels and pedals??50 weeks 13 hours agoYou can get Fulcrum Racing

    You can get Fulcrum Racing 3's for a smidge over £300 at the minute if you shop around. That is a spectacular price and serious bang-for-buck for a superb set of all round wheels. If I were in your shoes that'd be what I'd be looking at.

    As for pedals: They're like saddles. No-one can agree on which are the best. The usual derision dictates that Shimano break, Time cleats wear out, Look squeak and Speedplay are too high maintenance. It's all rubbish of course but you're unlikely to get a concensus.

    I personally like Time road pedals.

    It's probably automated (bought stuff > send review request) and there's not a lot that they're prepared to do about it. I've had review requests from a number of retailers (the most galling being one for products that I still haven't received, and weren't even in their store at the time). I just delete them.

    I am gobsmacked that people will pay so much for such a trivial product. But then bicycle tyres cost more than car tyres (go figure).

    However, I can attest that plastic Garmin mounts can be mounted "backwards" so that the unit is resting almost above the stem cap. This seems a bit more secure.

    Don't forget the (still overpriced) £6 o-ring mounts!

    Moronic.

    I ride this road regularly and as well as being horrifically busy at times, there is ample room for the proposed path. I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would object to what is being proposed. It defies belief.

    That aside, it would be nice if Sustrans did some work on the Tyne cyclepaths (especially Keelmans way) as they're in horrendous condition despite being incredibly popular.

    I digress, NIMBYs: I shit 'em.
