    Hate to be the bearer of bad news but that's all on her. She's got her head down staring at the lead riders back wheel. Group riding 101 rookie mistake right there. Had she had her head up she would've begun reacting when the lead rider reacted instead of two seconds later when she lifts her head. Hope she heals up soon but it's pretty shite that the article points fault at the officials when really, it's all on the rider in this one.

    I don't know why folk have to whinge in these forums. I have just spent an enjoyable hour selecting my teams with the help of www.procyclingstats.com. I ended up with a mixed bag of favourites and domestiques including our very own Lizzie A. My purist team is made up from the Low countries (local knowledge and all that Wink )
    Many thanks to GKam, Dave et al

    Using the latest 4 (iOS) here and not liking the change, since the old version had the ability to see your club members activity. The new version just has "following" or "me" activity option. I would like to see the club leaderboard on a mobile device, not just on their website.

    That's what the flags are for, in any kind of racing you need to be alert to the dangers or you become a danger yourself (or to yourself, as illustrated). Hopefully she'll make a quick recovery, but you can't blame the officials for such a schoolboy error.

  • Updated: Devon man to sue council after pothole causes four serious cycling crashes1 year 7 weeks agoThis whole compensation thing

    This whole compensation thing really pees me off. Very few people realise that this whole compensation culture is having a seriously detrimental affect on our ability to compete in a global market place, an ability on which we so utterly depend.

    If it's clinical negligence then fair enough, but potholes? Come on guys. The clues are there. The country's on the verge of bankruptcy, we know the roads are in a poor state, we know that in town the potholes tend to be where vehicles brake and accelerate, where heavy vehicles turn, and where contractors dig up roads. We know that darkness reduces visibility, we know that sitting on someone's wheel may prevent us from seeing the road ahead, we know that speed increases our stopping times, and we know that looking at our Garmins or checking our reflections in plate glass windows may not be such a good idea if we come a cropper.

    Ok, that's a bit of a moan, but I have a lot of sympathy with councils who are being starved of central government cash; who are doing their best to keep essential services going, and are being sued by cyclists who would almost certainly have avoided potholes if only they accepted the reality of the dire financial situation this country is in, and just rode more with a little more circumspection.

    Unless the tarmac suddenly gives way beneath your wheel, riding into a pothole is simply a result of one or more errors of judgement given the state of the road ahead.

    So do you want to replace the rim, keeping the hub? or just get it repaired?

    If you take and post a photo of the damage, then I might be able to suggest the best course of action.

    The one thing I know, you can't just buy Fulcrum rims on their own, your LBS may be able to contact Fulcrum and have it repaired, depending on the spoke pattern and number or spokes, you could just replace the rim and keep the hub. Fulcrum use strange patterns and there might not be another rim out there, for example, their 21h hub

  • Updated: Devon man to sue council after pothole causes four serious cycling crashes1 year 7 weeks agoI say get a solicitor who

    I say get a solicitor who knows what they are doing one that doesn't cave in at the first denial of liability and so is prepared to issue proceedings if the council don't cough up a satisfactory amount in compensation and a solicitor who will turn up to court on the morning of the trial with you, to go ahead with the case. You will find that the fricking council will settle rather than fight your claim as that hole in the pic is mahoosively monstrous and they KNEW about as well which beggars belief that they did NOT FIX IT asap! I hope you get thousands as not only is it negligence but gross negligence and incompetence verging on dereliction of their duty to keep the roads in a safe condition for ALL road users. 4cm may be fine for cars, etc but a 4cm hole will bring down a bicycle and seriously injure a cyclist as you and others have discovered. When you have won and got compensation, name and shame the negligent numptees at the council.

    I can see the benefit of spinning the women's races out into a fully separate 'game' (ie separate overall tables etc) rather than it being a subset of the men's game and that way people can really miss out on it if that's what they want to do without it affecting their league score.

    I agree though Gkam, it's nice to see new users engaging on the forums thanks to the women's racing.

    @jasecd

    I agree. I gather this is a promo for a longer doc which I'd be interested to see.

    It would certainly carry more weight as a documentary if it incorporated actual first-person interview footage.

    That would elevate it above and beyond being just a slick promo. It's something I would watch (I'm interested to know more about these guys)

    Unfortunately, this version is something I struggled to engage with.

    Neil, where do you get these 'factory gate' prices you speak of? High-end Al for $10, I'd hire an agent that can get prices like that. That's an even better deal than the carbon bike prices you quoted : )

    But all that aside, it has to be said this is a great VFM bike.
