Sadly prevention rather than cure is more expensive and to degree, difficult to quantify the overall success for cost. I do agree entirely but we do live in a world of cure rather than prevention
Every single study/analysis I've seen on preventative programmes, of varying kinds have shown a large net benefit to society.
Better grade schools = Net benefit
More socialisation activity (think youth clubs) = Net benefit
Better skills training for school leavers = Net benefit
The cure is very expensive, prevention is ROI positive.

Continuing with the top gear theme...
Best case scenario - Matey-jim wrote the article just to make a name for himself with a kind of "jeremy clarkson says offensive stuff and look how rich he is" mindset and he doesn't actually believe what he's written. Also, contrary to what he would have you believe, matey-jim is actually a very safe driver.
Worst case scenario - he was writing from the heart. In this case I would say he must be missing some DNA that most of us take for granted.
Fingers crossed everyone!

In response to Bashthebox... Declining power with age doesn't usually happen until far later in such a career. If he is only 36 at rio then why would he be affected by age? If he was 46 then that would be very different.

I do wonder, I often think that was a bit close, usually involves on coming traffic and overtakes on blind bends. I have had a bottle thrown at me, a few bits of verbal an arse slap from a woman in a convertible. But to be honest it isn't that common, maybe not living in London is why I don't see the level some seem to????

I'd just add that you can add some latex compound to your tubs, which will seal most punctures. Also, a tub puncture at speed is a lot less hair-raising than with a clincher coming off the rim.

Thanks! You may have identified my problem. I tried adjusting the cable, changed the chain and hanger but although it feels like the chain jumping I can't actually see it happening. What should a hub rebuild cost me?

I hadn't realised there was a shortage of high-end alu tub rims, so thats interesting; there's a growing choice in the tubeless-ready space. I'd be looking for something around £350-ish, so don't know if that is expensive enough to give a choice of tub wheels (with alu brake track) anyway.
Best I've been able to find in aluminium rim are HED Belgian rims (which, unlike their clincher relatives aren't scandium and are as a result marginally heavier). Also available: Velocity Major Toms (tubular version of the A23), Mavic Reflex (like Open Pros), Ambrosio do the Nemesis or the lighter (but still not very light) F20 crono (neither has a machined brake track). American Classic seem to be one of the few wheel manufacturers that advertisers an aluminium tubular wheelset (and they look quite nice, too, although they are as rare as rocking horse shit and not cheap at £450 a pair). After that (so far as I can tell) you are into NOS Campag wheels from the early 80s.
I got a pair of Major Toms on Novatec hubs with straight gauge spokes (for cross) for c.£260.
This is a stonking deal and if I wasn't already long tubs I'd buy a set myself: http://www.evanscycles.com/products/cole/t24-cx-dsa2-tubular-wheelset-ec032805?country=GB¤cy=GBP&utm_content=mkwid__pcrid_17321847296_kword__match__plid_&gclid=CObLmKrdmb4CFSsIwwodX2wAIw
Hmm, sorry but I can't help but see the shrinking pool of choice here, weighed against the increasing availability of 2-way-fit wheelsets.

That also applies whether you agree or disagree with their opinions.
If the 2 mentioned have been silenced they should be told why and how long for.
Freedom of speech does not mean a right to be published. Site owners can and should moderate when individuals have been abusive.
LOL, neither of us have, this is just fascists who want to suppress free speech.

Once Wiggo and Froome are done with, where is the future? Uran gone, Henao doing something or other. G and EBH looking to go. Porte getting on in years....
Sky is not short of a few bob to bring in new talent, nor are they short of it. And as for 'Froome being done with' (paraphrase) nothing could be further from the truth; you will be waiting and hoping for a few years just yet, Keith.
I didn't mean they were finished this year, I'm just looking where their next GT riders are coming from, it takes years to become a GT contender, it is rare from a rider to come in (unless from another Pro team) and just be a GT rider right off the bat.
Sky need to start blooding youngsters in the smaller tours, but they are sticking by the older guys and adding to their victories. The young guys need a chance.
I am thinking Boswell, Dombrowski, Edmondson and Rowe
