    Had this on pre-order and got it in October when the forst batch arrived. Mine has the 2012 build i.e. Tiagra chainset not FSA,Kenda tyres etc but its a really confortable ride for a winter bike. I got a smaller frame than normal and changed the bars from 44cm to 42 cm.

    Love it!

    I discounted this as an all-rounder due to the comparative length of the top-tube.

    Dropping a size will shorten the TT, but you'll end up with a more dropped front end, so you'd better be flexible otherwise your back will be complaining.

    On one of our club members being doored, the driver just laughed and said it was not his fault, our quick thinking secretary told the grounded lad to stay down while an ambulance was called knowing the police have a duty to attend. The officer wiped the smile off the drivers face with the option a being charged or taking the drivers awareness course. Our member was injured but not too seriously.

  • Driver in Mary Bowers case acquitted of dangerous driving, found guilty of careless driving1 year 17 weeks ago"people drive inattentively

    "people drive inattentively themselves and hate cyclists because they perceive them to add a few seconds to their journeys"

    FTFY.

    This is one of the greatest myths of motoring.

    I know from much experience as a driver that having to pass a cyclist almost always makes precisely zero difference to the overall journey time, whether on urban or rural roads.

    I'm quite condifent that the "they hold me up" argument is a crude defence mechanism that a selfish mind comes up with to mask the fact that it feels under threat from fear: http://buonoestente.wordpress.com/2012/11/08/why-motorists-hate-cyclists/

    "They hold me up" is a fallacy of course, and IMO is nothing more than the mark of a coward who fears responsibility for their own actions.

    I was watching BBC Look Leeds this evening and they reckon day 1 (July 5th) is going to be Leeds to Scarborough and day 2 (July 6th) is going to be York to Sheffield.

    If this is true (which it may not be) that will mean no prologue and a TDF finish twelve miles up the road from me.

    Bring it on !

    I doubt it. The favourite for SPOTY went over the bonnet of an idiot who didn't look properly and there was some encouraging rhetoric but as is always the case, nothing changes. Even then columnists were saying it was a shame that it was Wiggins and not one of those annoying Lycra louts.

    Enough people drive inattentively themselves and hate cyclists because they add a few seconds to their journeys for there to be a general attitude that any cyclist who is injured or killed had it coming to some extent.

    Plain Face i built just this autumn the previous model, and i'm a fair judge of a machine if i do praise myself, i don't race, and bought this frameset unbuilt from a older cyclist who hadn't realised that it was longer than average top tube wise. why??. i found it a decent machine but too harsh for our third world roads, so it went down the road to another owner.. from the above test i would gather that its a out and out race feel but with guards,, i felt exactly the same on the one i built.. looks great , but way too harsh for its supposed winter duties.. i tried all manner of tricks to soften it enough to keep it in my stable, big tyres , cross 3 front wheel, double tape bars , carbon bars and stem. nothing worked.. except putting it back in your wallet..
