• Look 6751 year 8 weeks agoThe Look 675 Generally

    The Look 675 Generally measures up slightly shorter in the top tube then the equivalent bike in a more generic frame shape but most of this can be adjusted for with stem length as the integrated stem is an expensive item you would be best advised to take some measurements form your current bike that fits you well and work out the desired frame size and stem length

    a 53cm look is 538.5mm Horizontal top tube length about 4mm shorter then the average of the major manufacturers but YES if you normally ride a 53 you will want a 53

    Ah, that's nice, I join a new community and get called stupid on only my second posting, thanks.

    All analogies break down, that's why analogous and identical are separate words, but the point is valid. Of course guns and lorries are different, but they can still be compared.

    Users of each should be subject to the same standard of care.

    Allowing something in your charge to kill another human being without outside interference is not careless, it's negligent.

    Not EVERY external BB system is cross compatible eg.Campag is Campag specific.

    However... Everything else I've encountered is Hollowtech 2 compatible, so you're in luck.

    Maybe. But the photo-ing and harrassing of the cyclist taking the lane was real-life Clarkson in the real-life world acting every inch the braying and bullying twunt most (reasonable) people think he is.

    Why 'death by dangerous/careless driving' at all? It's absolute nonsense! There is no 'death by dangerous/careless stabbing/shooting/...'. Why should killing a person with a licensed two tonne lump of metal be any different to killing a person with a (licensed) double barrel shotgun? It's either murder or manslaughter.

    I imagine those who want to defend driving would argue that killing someone with a car is usually unintentional, and indeed simply the result of a "momentary lapse" that doesn't reflect on the usual character of the individual.

    So, Manslaughter then... If necessary introduce Vehicular Manslaughter to replace Causing death by careless/dangerous driving

    I agree, but can't see it happening unless we can rid ourselves of the obsession with cars. And remember that cars impose costs and damage even when not being driven in an overtly stupid fashion.

    Why don't you have a look at the geometry of your current bike compared to that off the Look. That might give you an idea of how the two compare and if it would be suitable.

    If i was spending upwards of £3K on a bike you can be sure I'd find a way to try it out., and not rely on the opinions (well intentioned I'm sure) of people on an intent forum. I don't know how they could even make that judgement from the little information you have given either.

    Seems a tad risky to me.

  • Jura or Vendee for holiday1 year 8 weeks agoDepends what your cycling

    Depends what your cycling needs are. If you want big hills then it's the Jura.

    If you can satisfy yourself with the occasional sharp rise, then the Vendee has plenty of them on the coastal roads and further inland. There are a few hills in the departement that would make Cat 2/3, but it is a handful.

    We Eurocamped in La Tranche sur Mer four years in a row and I can't fault it for a bucket and spade holiday if the kids are young. I have plenty of hilly routes at home, so flying along for a while makes a pleasant change.

    The roads are reasonably quiet and of the usual high (ie non-UK) standard so if you can cope with zipping along flattish routes rather than slogging up mountains, the Vendee has plenty to offer.

    Bristol (as with every urban area) only looks like it does because people designed it and built it. Of course you can knock things down and change things - it happens all the time, in every city in the country. You can also remove or reduce vehicle traffic from roads or parts of roads. What you need to do is prioritise people over traffic. Yes, it costs money. Yes, it takes time. Yes it saves lives and yes it makes urban areas better for people to live in and use. It IS worth it, and should be done.
