Nice one. I would spend 5 minutes going round all the nuts and bolts with an allen key before riding it though. Just saying.

- Vasectomy and Cycling1 year 3 weeks agoTake the time and let it heal
Take the time and let it heal properly. If you cause damage by getting back on before it's healed, it will just be longer before you can get going properly. It's feeling pretty wintery now anyway, so plenty of time to get in the miles over the winter and build back up for when the weather improves next year - no need to rush it!

No, you're getting it all wrong, Road.cc know that we're all a bunch of red-light jumping criminal Londoners, and that's why this story is posted.
Nice try but we don't rat on our mates, fools.
PS, was he wearing tights and top or bib-shorts? I'm having difficulty deciding which one of my mates done this.

Chalk me down as another Lezyne Mega Drive owner, previously had a magic shine.
Having a one box solution is great. Paid £107 for mine (for the loaded box).
For real world beam shots have a look at torchythebatteryboy's website. I used to have an Exposure strada and, as can be seen from the shots, the Lezyne really does beat it.

Well surely then we could also tell a lot about people from the way they drive. Are they aware/considerate of other road users? Are they making progress or just dodging around achieving nothing and annoying/scaring others (manager)? Or whether they use the middle urinal from an empty group of 3 (sociopath)?
You may be on to something. I was cut up yesterday by a toad-like oik in a small grey van. At the next set of lights we were alongside each other and I noticed out of the corner of my eye that he was looking across at me, as if daring me to make a comment so he could leap out and start a fight. So I looked at him and I did wonder whether he was a sociopathic BNP or EDL member, or perhaps a Millwall supporter.

Excellent comment, 3cylinder.
There is a very strong association between helmet laws (and high rates of wearing and of pro helmet propaganda), low levels of cycling and high rates of casualties for cyclists.
USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa have dangerous roads, few cyclists and high helmet wearing rates (and/or laws).
Denmark and Netherlands have low casualty rates, low helmet rates and many cyclists.
We are somewhere between. Why on earth do we want to copy the foam hat wearers? They are more dangerous for cyclists even though they make us wear helmets.
I think helmets are an alibi or substitute for measures which might actually make the roads safer for cyclists.
Now can we just move on? It gets boring reading the same old comments regarding cycle helmets.

Tell us - what did you ACTUALLY do, where and when, who knew about it and turned a blind eye, and who facilitated it. Anything else is somewhat irrelevant.

The introduction of stricter liability, as part of a package of safety measures, would help to ensure that all road users understand the responsibility they have on the road whether in a car or on a bike. Ultimately, this should lead encourage mutual respect, greater awareness and make the roads safer for the more vulnerable road users.

Well as Tony says we are wanting to do on the bike shots with items like jackets, to show you all how they fit when stretched out on the hoods. Think it will be really useful
The item above is a gilet though so no sleeves to worry about, and regards how it fits when in the riding position, I did write this in my review: "The front is cut a little higher and the back lower, so it sits nicely around the waist when you're hunched over the bars."

I don’t know if there are any cyclists who haven’t gone through a red light. You do not get that on the Continent.
Totally untrue. Maybe in Copenhagen or Amsterdam but I also know someone in the former who would never dream of driving drunk but cycles drunk fairly frequently. In most European cities, RLJ is as common as in the UK from my experience, the only difference is that in London, it can be significantly busier with far worse infrastructure so it's a bit more obvious.
- Does the way you ride say what sort of employee you'd be? Lucy Kellaway thinks it might.1 year 3 weeks agoI commute in Northern
I commute in Northern Ireland, and have the joy of being able to travel to work either traffic free & slightly off road via a well maintained Coastal Path 16.5 miles ( MTB or Cyclocross required ) or by road 14.5 miles. I frequently vary which route & which bike I take to & from work, sometimes using single speed. My dress sense will change depending which bike / route im using, so wee bit of a generalisation to try and pigeon hole people by what they are riding or wearing, but none the less a nice article, providing a bit of fun in the morning!
