    Yep what on earth is going on with the FSA chainset! - Campag needed on that ASAP.

    Cant make my mind up about Colnago's - half of me likes them a lot and the other half cant see beyond the tacky Ferrari stuff they have done over the years.

    After some careful consideration, I've decided that the FSA chainset is absolutely hideous and I'm struggling to see what you gain over the Record cranks other than a happy parts supplier gaining publicity.

  • "I just don't care" texting Aussie driver tells police after injuring cyclist1 year 5 weeks agoSociety's response to this

    Society's response to this incident is shameful. Moreover I note that when cycling around my home area of the Leman Basin, France / Switzerland, I frequently see people driving with a mobile phone held to their ear. It's illegal but clearly the prosecutions are not frequent enough or sufficiently costly to deter the wrong-doers.

    Currently I have just the one main bike, Alu, had three but am travelling so needed to raise funds. Two planned when I returned.

    I'm a sysadmin for Gov't IT....it's pretty humble to be fair! One of my bikes I had to buy for half price after being loaned it from my old company, one was a hand me down from the BF, one's being bought by hire purchase, ones a team bike that I've to give back (cries!).

    Not sure how the other half manages to buy so many though, he's far too good with money! >.<

    I find it amazing that people think that LA had little natural talent. One of the youngest road world champions, but no talent? Regarding the doping, there were teams with just as 'sophisticated' programmes as the USP team.

    Absolutely, lots of talent, don't disagree on the doping at other teams either.

    If you find the initial outlay for Isla bikes a bit of a leap, have a look in store at Decathlon, the kids can ride round the store on the bikes, just pick one off the shelf and off you go.

    They are good enough, and better than the junk in most of the 'big retail' places.

    I would contact Reynolds and see what they say, I have a similar issue with my track bike, but no so much as you, but the wheels have done the same distance. The advise I had from some very experienced track riders was that its ok and fairly normal, but the track and road are 2 different beasts

    Anyway, I like Colnago. I think this frame looks the business, and I can't wait to hear how it rides. Would I spend £8k on this build? No, it's not worth that to me with this spec list. Would I spend £3.5k on the frameset? Absolutely.

    True, not usually the case but if I was spending a large amount of money on a bike I think I would kind of expect that it was that great. Maybe I am alone in thinking this?
    Also congrats on having an expensive house, not really a great analogy for what I was saying though.

  • "I just don't care" texting Aussie driver tells police after injuring cyclist1 year 5 weeks agoScary how many idiots are

    Scary how many idiots are using their mobile phones whilst driving and are not in control of them or not fully aware of their environment. If they hit pedestrians or cyclists the latter have no chance. Saying that when I last cycled to work I had two near collisions with some chavs that we're using their mobile phones whilst cycling.

    I say town, there is less than 3,000 of us.

    To say the least, I am not overly enthused about riding on the same road as her in nine months time.

    Saying that the general community here is outraged.

    However a certain class (read sub-class) of people like her don't give a shit about anyone else.

    I think she should have been banned for 9 years.

    When she was caught drink driving she should have been banned for life.
