I am sure there is a grave threat to LibDems, but I think the police are looking in the wrong place if they assume it will be bombs in Brighton.
No, all over the country there are millions of disillusioned LibDem voters from the last election, with an evil glint in their eyes

Also, on the Cav subject, even if he could get all the way round the course and do the 10 laps.....He's still got to finish up the Cauberg. 1.5km with a maximum gradient of 12%. The finish is only about a mile from there. NOT going to happen for him
- Road Worlds: Marianne Vos finally gets her second road race world title after dominant display1 year 23 weeks agoI know, I know.....Only one
I know, I know.....Only one person before Vos has been Olympic and World champion in the same year on the road either in the men's or women's road race.
Britain very own Nicole Cooke in 2008
They are the only two to have ever done it on the road, including TT champion's. Many have won the year proceeding and gone on to win Olympic or the year after and won the Worlds. So holding both title's at the same time, but never in the same year.
There are to many riders in different races to have done it on the track. But only two ever on the road and as Vinokourov isn't racing today, It can only be the two of them for another 4 years

That should be "Giorgia Bronzini", you missed the last I.
Great result for Marianne, she looked so distraught when she lost out last year. How many people have won Olympic RR Gold and RR Rainbow Jersey in one year?
- Spin Speed Metal 30 wheelset1 year 23 weeks agoNever ridden a G3 so can't
Never ridden a G3 so can't comment.
Ibhave ridden Vision wheels however and found them to be the worst wheels I ever used... Until I experienced the joys of the Sram s30's, truly shit.
It's not just about spoke count for sure, its a whole host of things. Camp rear wheels have very widely spaced flanges which help resist lateral load, but I'd imagine if they do perform well it'll be a fat beefy rim that is adding a lot of the strength.
Just using the same spokes as any normal wheel, with a normal hub and standard rim does not make a fast wheel. Ok, responsive wheel.

- DfT's new Think Cyclist campaign fails to get cycling organisations on board1 year 23 weeks agoAll sensible advice aside
All sensible advice aside from the inevitable 'If I hit you it's your fault for not wearing a helmet' one.
This is good advice for life - we should ALL wear helmets, ALL the time, just in case we might get hit by someone in a pub, or something land on our head from above... but if it's just cyclists, then it rather looks as if it's their fault.
So - a campaign to get people to wear a helmet all the time?
Yes. Sounds sensible - after all, it might make you look a bit silly but it would be dangerous to NOT wear it on that one in a million chance - and who'd want THAT on their conscience?

He has even fooled gkam. Well done sky. Go cav.
Nb. Cav isnt actually in my squad, my tips for teabags
Bristol now has its own type of money, Road.cc's is based on schwag and argyle.
I've offered him my only schwag win if he wants it, Robert Penn's book.
Most people don't cycle because they're lazy and scared. They don't realise cycling will boost their health to a degree that outweighs the risks by a factor of 20:1. Cycling isn't all that dangerous, it's just perceived to be. Most motorists don't ride and are ignorant of the risks they cause to cyclists by things such as passing too close or whatever.
But some cyclists do wind up motorists unnecessarily. I was driving back to Lonoion along the A303 last week and at the non-dualled section at Stonehenge, there's always a tailback. It was being made far worse due to four road riders side by side as they pedalled up the hill, and it wasn't necessary or considerate. That's the sort of riding that adds fuel to the fire for overweight cycling haters like potato face Jeremy Clarkson.
On the way home yesterday I saw a guy on a roadbike run three sets of red lights in succession - and he nearly got clipped by a car at one of them.
People do need to ride more consierately and carefully.
But at the same time, the risks to other road users from cyclists are minimal. And this is something that is poorly understood.
Cripes. I got the impression that Spin did decent kit.
Well, we're in the west country
…Mind you, Sarah isn't
I am, but only for the weekend. It must've rubbed off tho...
what is this, some kind of argyle-based barter economy?
how about a suspension of the Government's £13bn road building programme until every single motorist in the UK drives below the speed limit, doesn't text while driving and doesn't park on the pavement?
Sounds good to me
A tiny fraction of the money saved could be put into decent cycle and walking infrastructure.
Interesting to see Dr Walker discuss the outgroup phenomenon. I've been one of those accused of overreacting to the "only good cyclist is s dead cyclist" type veiled threats (and I still can't see why such comments are viewed as humorous).
As for "sticking to the cycle path", too often it's unreasonable, for reasons explained here and elsewhere a multitude of times before.
Meanwhile in Shrewsbury a pedestrian crossing point/refuge is being blamed (totally without cause in my opinion) for traffic queues in the town centre. It would be funny if it wasn't so bloody pathetic! However, the drivers will soon find the queues they are in don't get any smaller so they can then find something/someone else to blame.
I've PM'd you aswell so you have my email address
Carlton +1. Given how everyone from hoodies to athletes rides bikes, its quite odd that we are all seen as one and the same.
sheeeesh! i nearly bought these before i settled on my Visions.
if one wheel had issues i could see that being a dodgy batch but for both to go thats a bit alarming!
like the zw lid and all the specs...how come i havent heard of the company before? looks like some realy good kit...
