    Is that because Colnago is so old already, or that a Bianchi is less desirable?

  • Hi guys ,anyone know anything about the Ridley Fenix c30 i1051 year 4 weeks agoI can't comment on those

    I can't comment on those bikes other than to say that between a Fuji, a Ridley and a Pinarello, you aren't going to get a bad bike regardless of your choice. Ride them all and pick which one feels/looks the best. Pick the one that will drag you out of bed early to get outside on a Sunday morning!

    Oh, but be careful with Halfords - it sounds like they are improving all the time, but there are stories abound of bikes being set up wrongly/dangerously by the staff there.

    If the witness statement is true, it highlights the need for drivers to give cyclists more space to avoid such incidents. London Bridge is a three lane road so I see no need as to why a car would be so close to a cyclist. Anyhow, whatever the cause, a sad occasion.

    exactly, case law gives cyclists the right to wobble room, that car drivers believe that traveling within inches is acceptable needs to be dealt with.

    Regardless of details, it sounds like the cyclist had a heart attack and was then hit by a car. The former, these things happen, the later, that should never happen! What does the highway code say about leaving space? What are the insurance assumptions if you run into the back of a car? The car was simply too close.

    They were super busy a few days before the TDF Grand Depart with bikes and bikeboxes all over. I can recommend either them or Stratton cycles, by exp and the closest ones too.

There is no honour in cheating to win - it's as hollow and meaningless as the memory. And that's where this should be left - in the distant and cobwebby past. A hero he was not.

    Please get your facts straight before you start blaming cars (happens far too much on here). The cyclist was travelling north, hit the central reservation and fell into the path of the car travelling south. Sounds like a freak incident and not a lot the car could do. RIP to the cyclist and hope the car driver doesn't have too many sleepless nights!

    How does the in-house running of the scheme work? Any differences? They don't want to buy the bike themselves and then rent it to me.

    Do you follow the same sentiment with the other ex dopers who rode in the 90s?
    Or just single Riis out?
    After all there are;
    OPQS - Holm and Aldag both admitted EPO use
    Garmin - Vaughters
    Astana - Vino

    And more than likley many more.

    e.g if Rider A sits 3rd on GC after stage 4 will he get the relevant 8pts even though he may only be there due to his performances on earlier stages?

    It doesn't help that it's Bjarne Riis's team, Tinkoff Saxo, involved here. It's unfortunate that doper Riis is still involved in cycling.

    I can understand that it's disruptive to their plans for the Tour of Poland, but it's a shame that that's their only comment (at least quoted here).

    How about saying something about being committed to making sure all their riders are clean (and meaning it)?

  • Hi guys ,anyone know anything about the Ridley Fenix c30 i1051 year 4 weeks agoI have a carbon Fenix frame

    I have a carbon Fenix frame and it is absolutely the best bike in the world. It doesn't do anything spectaculary but it does everything. Mines been to it's birth place, Flanders and Roubaix. Planning on taking it to the Etape next year. The frame is slightly heavy than equivilants as it is overbuilt for cobbles, but the smoothness of the ride leaves you fresh enough for that extra effort.

    Get one and you'll not regret it.
