    Yea I foolishly picked a 3.6 rider as my budget team filling rider, so missed out on 0.6, lesson learnt. Hoping by missing the deadline I've accidentally done my self a favour. Already had quite a good mountain team, but avoided messing with my team for sake of it. Also left with 4 transfers tomorrow.
    Fingers crossed.
    Anyone know how Barguil is after his crash?

    I got these and was on the RAB, my chain dropped and somehow I managed to get chain grease everywhere. Never got the damn stain out and I love these bibshorts.

    If you carefully rub Swarfega (original green gel version) into the grease stain, leave for 20 minutes, rinse out and then wash as normal, I find this successfully gets rid of grease stains.

  • London gets new road safety plan aimed at cutting disproportionate casualty rate among vulnerable users1 year 11 weeks agoNope, you're both massively

    Nope, you're both massively wrong

    20mph zones in London reduce casualties by over 40% with no corresponding rise in casualties in neighbouring streets. The evidence is here in the British Medical Journal:

  • US judge dismisses attempt to sue Strava after cyclist killed while trying to recapture segment KoM1 year 11 weeks agoIt looks like an easy case

    It looks like an easy case because he killed only himself. But actually he splatted to death on an SUV in the oncoming lane after losing control and crossing the line. I don't know who had to clean up the blood but I'm sure it wasn't nice.

    But what if he had smashed though a windshield and into a child strapped into a retaining seat and so unable to dodge? Then of course Flint's freedom to kill himself doesn't sound so convincing.

    If there's a way to reduce >innocent< people getting killed on the road, should it be considered? Specifically, if that way is "don't encourage bicycle riders to attempt feats beyond their skill level where they may lose control on public roads" is it a moral obligation to enforce that?

    The usual "wait until the crisis hits" way to go about it would be to wait until an innocent person is killed and then let the emotional tsunami wash through the court system. Obviously smart people don't wait until the crisis.

    There is a new case of a Stanford U team rider killing a elderly pedestrian during a light change in San Fransisco. He was recording on strava via his cellphone in real time; I don't know if he was on a segment or not. But now he has the strava stigma involved in his case, and strava has the stigma of the rider who killed a pedestrian. The rider is healthy and fine.

    To anyone who records on strava in realtime via a cellphone, you should consider that if you get in an accident, even if it is somebody elses fault, that strava recording is likely to be used against you if at all possible.

  • Pioneer get into the power meter game1 year 11 weeks agoPower meter systems are

    Power meter systems are expensive because of the strain gauges themselves - we're talking mega complicated and fine tolerance instrumentation here, which has to be miniaturised yet sturdy enough to stand up to everyday use. Just think about what they do, it's a device which determines the force you put into the crank by measuring its distortion. That distortion would be imperceptible to you or I if we were able to try and feel it with our fingers!

    They just aren't easy enough or cheap enough for the manufacturers to produce for them to offer lower prices and it be worth their while... yet.
