It constantly amazes me, while cycling in Soho, London, how many peds just walk along in the middle of the roads, oblivious to their surroundings, then are really surprised when you pass them. I often wonder how they got to the age they are with any road sense at all

PCS doesn't really have it together yet either. Nibali is not listed on their startlist for Astana, etc.

Evans Cycles tech line will tell you that you must Must MUST use the FSA tat. This is a crock. They simply want to sell you £50 worth of fast-wearing cheese instead of £15 Shimano goodness.
Clean up them threads, use Coppaslip, torque it right, take care putting the spindle through and you'll be fine.

I'd say that the opinion of a lorry driver on a cycling forum is just as valid as the opinion of a cyclist on a lorry driving forum. It's good to hear the forthright views, and indeed frustrations, of other road users.

I always look both ways, even when crossing a pedestrian zone, ever since my first visit to Italy. The Aitais are, in the words of my Italian brother in law, "flexible" when it comes to road rules, so I always play it safe, even at home.

Get that barrel of lard on a bike and I'll start believing in Cameron's cycling revolution! He reminds me very much of the South Glos cycling champion, similar build, same crass stupidities, drives 4x4 and doesn't ride a bike.
Politicians, say one thing, do exactly the opposite, and they wonder why we don't trust them.

There is a lot to be said for the LBS. I got myself a slx last year, a superb bike that would be hard to beat even if it was an extra £1000, but a long delay, poorly assembled and now the need for new headset bearings which nobody seams to know much about (acros) kind of took the shine off of the deal. Would I buy from Canyon again? probably. Its the bike that counts.
- Scottish Road Share campaign steers presumed liability law towards Parliament1 year 4 weeks agorollotommasi: to answer a
rollotommasi: to answer a couple of your points:Quote:
Why cyclist deaths per billion km are lower in the UK than in many EU countries (e.g. Spain, France, Italy, Belgium, Austria) – some of which presumably have some strict / presumed liability arrangements in place
• Which EU countries apply strict/presumed liability in cases where the cyclist is a fit adult
1) Because in the UK there are FAR fewer km ridden than in Spain, France etc. Simple law of averages says that the fewer people riding, the fewer accidents there are going to be.
2) There are 4 countries without Presumed Liability: Malta, Northern Ireland, Bulgaria...and us. All other 22 member states of the EU have Presumed Liability.
Not really sure where the filtering argument comes into this??Quote:
Whether it is acceptable for Cycle Law Scotland to pretend that filtering is acceptable in any circumstances.
It's perfectly legal - there might be times when it is not advisable but it remains legal.
I think part of the problem whenever presumed liability crops up is this notion that cyclists (or pedestrians) are suddenly going to start hurling themselves under cars and suing everyone. That is patently utter bollocks. A lot of it is down to misrepresentation of the argument, bringing emotive words and phrases like "guilt" and "blame". I'd urge everyone to read this:
and there are numerous other articles out there from a variety of sources which a quick Google will bring up.

The FSA mega exo bottom brackets are truly dire.
As said above, you can get an Ultegra one that will work with FSA chainsets for small amounts of pounds (if you shop around).
I think the FSA bb on my commuter lasted less than 900 miles. The Ultegra replacement has lasted over 7000 miles so far.

Can't help but have uneasy feelings about a firm of solicitors (or possibly ambulance chasers) getting involved with this, and the precedent it could set.
Needless to say, my thoughts go out to the rider involved and I wish him the best possible recovery.

Exactly. Aesthetically the most beautiful bikes are surely the simplest - track bikes or brakeless bmx just look pure and clean. But disc brakes clear the forks and stays even if they do clutter another area.
This is a nice looking bike.
