    Yep, i was only 13 points off a top 10 ! just shows how many people were around our scores.

    Look awesome. As a big fan of steel though, it's just too much considering you could get a made to measure custom-built steel frame, (in 953 as well), for about half this price.

    Typical Madison pricing. As much I like a steel bike this is just too much especially considering current pricing of Dura Ace groups on line.

  • Mystery Clicking....1 year 2 weeks agosounds like handlebars / stem

    sounds like handlebars / stem could be a likely culprit. Try taking them off and cleaning the clamping surfaces then re-assemble- make sure you tighten them correctly and evenly.

  • Get money back on your Oyster card every day you walk or cycle to work?1 year 2 weeks agoThere should be a restoration

    There should be a restoration of the Zones 3-6 tariff - cycling from Zone 2/3 boundary in to Central London is no sweat 20-25 minutes at most.

    Many used to take bike to Clapham Junction & ride - avoiding the massive overloading of trains from there inwards, and some still do with folding bikes, and bike parked at CLJ. Those who go from main rail to bike save around £1200/year for the London Zones 1-6 supplement and cover the last part of their commute faster and more reliably for less cost. That means less demand especially for buses and taxis for the last stage of many journeys in Central London, so less needed.

    Key will be bike hire and parking at places like Finsbury Park - but NOT the Boris bike share model. This will have a hire for the day, return to same location model, or be a Brompton Dock folding bike, collect and ride and keep out for a few days. Pricing - well 250 days commuting = £1200 so under £4.50/day remains attractive.

    Then the issue to address is providing a direct and easy to use route that is not perceived as taking a longer time. Minimising the stop start for traffic signals, through careful use of give way and other by-pass routes.

    A key example might be Old St - Clerkenwell Road, and a no-stopping route through the Old Street/City Road roundabout - I suggest raising the roadways in the rebuilt junction and taking cycles and pedestrians under the viaduct in an open public space, eliminating the subways with their restricted tight/90 degree bends and narrow passages.

    Another location might be Waterloo, where a bridge over York Road would clear the mess of cyclists and pedestrians bunching up at the crossing and traffic signals.

    Making the routes fluid and clean running attracts users, especially when they go where people already want to go.

    I've had both of the above happen on the mtb and the spoke tension was the hardest to determine

    Yes Gordy, that's a very good point. I know I would love to be able to afford to know that my money goes to the good guys! If I were a rich man I would have a brace of those bikes I saw yesterday, but as an average punter who likes riding bikes rather than looking at them so much... well I am going to take value decisions.

    But yes, maybe there's a balance in there somewhere... An Etape from Enigma versus a cheap Defy+TCR, I would probably buy the Enigma. I guess that's sort of where my value/quality fulcrum sits - a fairly plain off the peg titanium bike, that could last ten + years would be better than a custom 725 in my book, and about the sameish price.
