    Mike,

    With this long ride, are you preparing for a tilt at the Paris-Brest-Paris or Bordeaux-Paris run perhaps ?

    Thanks both. At the end of the day it'll come down to me deciding whether I can justify shelling out £800+ for a box of bike bits I guess. Perhaps if I have a couple of glasses of wine before I order it, it might feel easier...

  • TRP Hy/Rd mechanical interface hydraulic disc brakes1 year 4 weeks agoOdd comment. Wouldn't have

    Odd comment. Wouldn't have thought these are aimed at people converting to discs - rather for new bikes or those of us already running them with mech discs.

    Been waiting for the review of this before getting them for my Kinesis Crosslight Pro 6 which I'm running BB7s on at the moment. Looks like a worthwhile upgrade

    I guess you need the relevant frame bosses and a new set of wheels to upgrade? Pretty much a new bike.

    No, I would think anyone in their right mind would say that recommending you take as many gels as you like is most certainly a marketing ploy. If you have a juicer buy some beetroot, it works, costs less and is made entirely of "vegetable sources."

  • L’Eroica: a good old-fashioned bike ride1 year 4 weeks agoFor retro parts, it's

    For retro parts, it's downtube/bar-end shifters, non-aero brake levers and toeclips and straps on the pedals - doesn't really matter about the age of them.

    A less known rule is that if you're not wearing a wooly jersey, then you exclude yourself from a goody bag at the end of the 205km.

    Another events thats grown significantly is the Retroronde now that they've added a 100km option for the Sunday ride, as well as the Retro-criterium on the Saturday evening. It was a really well-run event with a very friendly atmosphere, plus the bonus is you can drive rather than having the indignity of flying Sleazyjet.

  • How to replace alloy plates on ST-6700 Ultegra shifter1 year 4 weeks agoI have searched the internet

    I have searched the internet watched some Shimano videos and looked at my shifter and the replacement part. It seems that plate A at the front easily screws off, which is required to change the brake cable. Plate B looks a bit trickier. It looks as though the brake cable has to be taken off before unscrewing the alloy looking piece with a screw on either side. I just want to ensure that a spring or two doesnt fly out when I take off plate B.
    Has anyone done this. Wiggle sell plate A and plate B so there must be a demand for them.

  • Video: Mike Cotty's 300-mile training ride1 year 4 weeks agoHi Zalamanda. I've used Mavic

    Hi Zalamanda. I've used Mavic equipment for many years through choice as I personally found it to be good quality gear that did what I wanted it to. Over time I got to know the brand a little more and now I receive some support from them which I'm very grateful for as it's what I was using already. Everything that you may see me riding with is through choice. Products / brands that I like and that I've found work well for the type of riding I do.

    All the best,

    Mike

    but if I had to purchase a new frame I'd probably spend at least 330-350 £, as a matter of fact the complete bikes are usually more discounted than the frame bought on its own

    Furthermore I'd probably have to purchase some tools to build a bike from scratch using the new frame

    The answer to this is to make the doctor liable for not informing the DVLA, if the gp risks being sued they might actually do what they are supposed in the first place.

    Well there could be a route to take on this, through a civil action, on behalf of the victim in such a crash. A GP, and quite possibly relatives will know that the person is unfit, through medical condition or even through riding as a passenger with the older driver driving.
