- Bespoked: the versatility of steel1 year 5 weeks agoIf I was buying* a race bike
If I was buying* a race bike I wouldn't choose steel, to be honest I wouldn't be buying top of the range either, no point buying anything you can't afford to repair/replace.
If I was buying* a sunday special then I would go steel/Ti, IMO they look nicer which is what the bikes are all about, and as I am less likely to crash it repair/replace isn't an issue.
*As it is I don't have the money for a new bike so the Lemond CdF continues, and will continue till I break it, which hopefully won't be until after discs** become widespread.
**I see little point buying a non disc bike "sunday" bike as that is where the market is going so might as well future proof the bike.

Versatility of steel and versatility of price, I'm gobsmacked at the cost of today's steel frames. I have an original Viscount Aerospace steel frame with beautifully crafted fillet brazed joints the equal of any of today's costly masterpieces. I picked it up in a bike junk shop for fifteen quid.

And what about comfort? I ride steel, carbon and Ti frames. The carbon may be the lightest of the three, but it's nowhere close in terms of comfort. If you can afford it, an 853 steel or Ti frame is vastly preferrable to carbon (imo).

Not that slim.
- Police go door-to-door in hunt for New Forest sportive saboteurs1 year 5 weeks agoBeing a pedant, using the
Being a pedant, using the term "taking the law into their own hands" implies that these saboteurs were doing something that someone else (like the police) had failed to do - i.e. stop lawbreaking - when in fact it is the exact opposite. The saboteurs are the ones breaking the law by attemptign to cause damage and potential injury to people going about their perfectly legal and legitimate activity.
Having done the Surrey-London100 last year, I can say there were a few protesters out but the vast majority of people were hugely supportive, and it's probably similar in the New Forest. We shouldn't let the actions of a tiny minority of small minded, petty NIMBYs get so much exposure or suggest they have any kind of legitimacy.

- Geometry questions1 year 5 weeks ago@sniffer
I have considered a
I have considered a retul fit actually, as well as specialized bg fit. Does retul encompass all fitting processes? Cleats an all? Did you find you needed long and low geometry to be comfy?
There is a good review on this site about Retul. Look in Sam Shaw's blog. I went to the same place and my experience was very similar. My cleat position was checked and the fit seemed to be very comprehensive. There was also a flexibility and core strength test done (plank).
I did go longer from my fit. My stem length was increased to 120mm and my saddle was originally too high. This position does appear to be more comfortable.
If a bike were invented that allowed you to ride farther than Merckx in a hour would that make you better than Merckx?
And by riding in Mexico was Merckx cheating? Do we need to ensure that all riders are on the same track, do we need to ensure that the weather is the same?
what was the tubing that Merckx used? is it still available? What about the tyres?
There can NEVER be an exact match. However the UCI do need to stop fiddling on this, either anything goes or they need to lock it down.
Very F'kn funny! I don't hate the guy at all for doing this skit; Heck I think he can have a career in non athletic entertainment if he so desired.
His Radioshack and Dick's Sporting Goods TV ads (before the downfall) were actually very funny at sending up his persona, don't know if they're still on YouTube but made me laugh at the time....
Time to get to work on core and flexibility then, and perhaps consider something a touch less races! Nobody likes the idea of a SuperSix with loads of spacers!
Thanks for the help

He was using a Garmin GPS (Edge 500), so I wouldn't read too much into the result.
If you look at cycling modal share, life expectancy and per capita health care spend (public & private) it is surprising that we spend less on healthcare than the Dutch and Danes as well !
However most of the modal shift was in the last 30-40 years so any benefit is unlikely to show up yet.
If you mean Wellington NZ I can help...
What would be more interesting is to look at cycling modal share, life expectancy and per capita health care spend (public & private).
I suspect our increased life expectancy in the UK is medically influenced with advances in this field rather than lifestyle.
In addition, most of the modal shift was in the last 30-40 years so any benefit won't show up yet.
