I've got lucky, that the likes of rogers/mollema/hesjedal are picking up points on stages I didn't pick them for. I picked vichot for the last 2 stages.
We have had diff winners for the past 6 comps, and I won 1 of those, so by the end I proabbly won't win.
- Essential kit: Cycling, er, masks1 year 32 weeks agoWearing one piece motorcycle
Wearing one piece motorcycle leathers and one of those masks will certainly get you noticed, but it won't be particularly comfortable or practical. I suppose that if you're a fixie rider, the money you save on having gears can be set aside to buy the mask.
It takes all sorts I suppose.

Checked out the pics in cycling weekly this wk. Bit disappointing really, I think they could have given it a bit more profile. It looks empty in terms.of footfall which wasn't the case IMHO.

- FS: Shimano Dura-Ace Carbon Chainset1 year 32 weeks agoAlso, just looking through
Also, just looking through some of my info, I think you might need to look again at what it was designed for. You say
"This limited FC-7800C chainset was developed specifically for the 7900 series 10-speed current generation groupset."
I believe, it was only designed specifically with a 7900 chain in mind, as it will work with all Shimano 10 speed groupsets 7800, 7900 and Di2.
The other part i query is - "This carbon chainset looks much the same as the aluminium version, almost as though they just wrapped a layer of carbon over the top, this is not the case."
I believe this to be wrong aswell, as the 7800-C was cold forged aluminum wrapped core with visible carbon, Meaning it is pretty much just wrapped in a layer of carbon over the top.
I know all this because i got all the info on it, but couldn't get my hands on one as only 50 were sold in the UK around Xmas 08 and i was out of the country.

Woow, If this had been in "excellent un-worn condition" i would have snapped your arm off to add it to my collection of Limited Edition Shimano stuff, but its clear for all to see the wear on the outer ring's teeth.
As they say in dragon's den......i'm out.
P.s. why would you fit something that nice with it being limited edition to your bike and only use it a little, it should be all or nothing

Ironic that you feature Campag EPS on the same piece with the Lambo bike
I wonder what led 'pure-bred' performance car company Lamborghini to look north to Switzerland for a partner in producing a bike to echo the company's heritage. I'm surprised they didn't look a lot further north (where Lambo's current owners originate from) and liaise with Canyon, Cube or Focus
And why a Japanese group set?
There are Italian pro teams riding Italian bikes - I wonder what turned them against Colnago, Wilier, MCipollini et al.
Agree about a Japanese groupset; Why?
Lambo could never have collaborated with Colnago as they already collaborate with Ferrari (strangely, also using Dura-ace, I seem to remember) and, if you believe the history, Lambo started making sports cars when Ferruccio Lamborghini got fed-up with the clutch on his Ferrari failing.

There are still some deals about on 2011 Roubaix models iirc. Might be worth looking in to.
Just buy the frame and the groupset seperately - I did this and by careful shopping saved about £1,300 over shop floor price and it's hellva fun building it up. I have learn't so much about frames, groupsets and accesories during the 2 months of searching, it also gave me something to so during rainly lunch breaks.
Also by putting it all together myself (except installing the BB30 BB) I have learnt all about maintining my bike in workshop condition for free and also seem to have ammassed a whole new load of tools (mostly second hand of eBay at a 1/4 of the price). Plus I get exactly what I wanted - not what was forced on me. In the end I went for mostly Sram force with some Sram Red bits.

I give in with mixed use - I cycle through Lewisham on my commute and I would say on the one bit of shared pathway I use 80% of pedestrians are on the cycle path section - I dont overly mind as the footpath bit is much smoother!
These paths are a niightmare with a road or car park crossing every 50 meters - I prefer to run the risk of using the road personally.
- Saddles and numbness1 year 32 weeks agoAs I mentioned in a previous
As I mentioned in a previous post I went for the Selle SMP stratos - I did a review here
It fixed the issues I was having but all saddles vary between people, though many swear by this saddle. With this one your sit bones go inside the saddle not outside.
Even with the above saddle - the difference that even a quarter degree change in tilt or moving it back or forward a few mm can make a dramatic difference. Also make sure you have the right size saddle - did you get you sit bones measured before choosing a saddle?

- wheels upgrade/seat upgrade1 year 32 weeks ago+1 for Mavic Ksyrium
+1 for Mavic Ksyrium Elites
or if budget is tighter - I like the Mavic Ksyrium Equipe. Light enough but not ultra light at 1680g - but most imprtanly - good hard wearing rim and cartridge bearings (£10 to replace - not a whole new wheel and less maintainence. They spin up well and behave in cross winds.
As for seat - I had a nightmare with these! first bit of advice is definately get you backside (well sit bones) checked for size. Go to a store where they have demo saddles if possible and you have time.
I went for the selle smp stratos in the end - expensive for what it is but well made and it ended my ass pain problem. and apparently your sex life will suffer less (I dunno).
I put a review on my blog - http://ukmambo.blogspot.co.uk/2011/09/selle-smp-stratos-saddle-review.html
worth a read if your interested.

I've used Fulcrum 5s for a few years now and they are really pretty good - never needed straightening and spin up nicely but tyres are a really tight fit. Possible slight weakness in the freewheel springs but very easy to replace.
I also have Mavic Ksyrium Elites as "best" wheels and they are fantastic if you can stretch the budget, they transformed my bike.
