The Ultimate AL is a lot of bike for the money. Both the 105 and Athena equipped models look great value and the frame is the same as the road.cc bike of the year. Well worth a look.
I've run Campag for thousands of miles and never noticed a racket so that's a new one on me.

Mistakes are costing me big time. Was sitting pretty at the top of the South West league but now i'm in danger of being 3rd after Romandie if i can't up my game! (Classic's didn't help)
Hoping for Astarloza now I bet???

Any idea what's going on? Sounds like a small group out front with the likes of Albasini and Meersman in it. Is Gesink in there?

- Invisible cyclists: Eye-tracking experiment finds drivers don't see more than 1 in 5 riders (+ video)1 year 11 weeks agoI had an interesting chat
I had an interesting chat with the MET police yesterday, they are up here all the time on royal protection and one of their drivers put right out and almost got my in the mini bus.
For a change I was fully light up, had my flat on, was wearing light coloured clothing.
So flagged him over for a chat. It seems and I did see his point of view. He was looking, I know that, when he looked to see anything coming down the road, a car had just pasted and blocked his view of me, even with the flag at around 5.5ft from the ground. Fair enough, I am not the most visible that low down, I have quick reactions, which saved me going into the side of the van. If it had been a kid at a similar height to my recumbent, they would have been squashed, I made that point, it was taken on board and we went on our way. Really nice guys the MET

- Upgrading a "cheap" bike1 year 11 weeks agowidth of the stays and forks
width of the stays and forks might need to be checked for the wheels, it should be okay they are usually a standard size. Steel will bend a little but carbon wont. at all.
Handlebars should be fine too just make sure your stem and the bars are same sizes. Its just a question of making sure things are the same sizes really. Double check everything and if your unsure make friends with a bike shop (if your not already) they'll recommend the best parts for you I'd imagine!

It would be interesting to do the experiment with cyclists. I would guess that cyclists are much less likely to fail to see motor vehicles. If so, why?
'cos they're bigger, and so less likely to fall into a 'saccade': http://www.londoncyclist.co.uk/raf-pilot-teach-cyclists/
The cyclist is usually travelling more slowly, expecting to give way or stop and, being more vulnerable, watching for danger.
Slowing cars allows drivers more time to look, which means they are more likely to see cyclists and peds. Forcing drivers to take longer at junctions, as described in Chris Boardman's article in The Times (and illustrative Street View link in a tweet), means they have to look more than if they just glide through. Everyone does it - it's easier if you can keep rolling and not stop completely. But it is more difficult to scan the scene effectively while the car is moving than if you stop completely.
Riding further into the road means you are more obvious to other road users, including those on side roads. It also reduces (but doesn't prevent) the chance of too-close passes by impatient, selfish idiots. I usually ride at least 18" and sometimes 2 feet from the edge of the road.
Wobbling is apparently a good way to get the attention of following traffic - your trajectory becomes unpredictable.
I have been saying it for a long time now, but there should be a restriction on in-car gizmos, touch-screens and most definitely satnav, but sadly manufacturers think these are great selling points and buyers are seduced by gadgets. Many drivers also have a false sense of just how good (i.e. safe) their driving is.

Eye Contact & always riding, when solo, with Flashing lights are a practical option. Neither are cure all.
Slightly more outlandish options would An Obama style motorcade or a Team Badged Skoda with 2 motor bikes outriders. With Partridge Harmon on a Tannoy berating your pedalling style. With Big Maggy chipping in with “ Yeaah Its not the best” on loop.
