• HELP : Hydraulic brakes....1 year 14 weeks agoOk this may sound a little

    Ok this may sound a little odd but are you sure there is no moisture getting into the system?
    If you have bled them and have even the slightest bit of air in there it can then create moisture which will then push ur brakes one of two ways , either no brake force at all or it will force the brakes on locking them solid , my bro had that problem with some avid mtb brakes , changed the fluid for a different brand and never had the problem since

    Just my 2p worth Smile

    Ah well , if I'd gone with my gut instinct I would have taken konig out last night and replaced him with Sammy , problem is I've read every other stage so badly I missed out on a 123 Sad

  • Ade Adepitan leads cyclists in Stevenage for One Show cycling special1 year 14 weeks ago"If we make it super

    "If we make it super convenient for all, it will be the motorists who win, so we must stop designing for motorists."

    See i dont get that at all, in this case its people that win! They can walk, cycle or drive, all in a pleasant and safe way (Motorists are people too).

    So why would we choose to design to make it harder to drive, health reasons?

    Or is the comment supposed to be suggesting that in future we develop more for other road users instead of just drivers? well last time i checked they were, ASL's, cycle lanes etc. Its happening, slowly yes, but getting all dramatic about it wont help, and stating that 'motorists' are getting an easy ride is just going to agrivate the normal people who just happen to be motorists too.

    No squealing, the left lever comes back around 3/4 and the right can be pulled on full and doesn't do anything

  • Game Suggestions1 year 14 weeks agoOk fair enough , I just think

    Ok fair enough , I just think that unpredictability would add to the tactics , as I mentioned above .
    The only point I would add is that in a GT it's easier to make ground by the odd gamble but in a one week race like the dauphine , once you are 100 points down its nigh on impossible to gain that even if you are all out gambling on breakaway points as those in the lead just try to pick safely to maintain the gap so to speak

    In racing terms it's like taking the leaders jersey in the first few days and controlling the peleton for the next 5 Wink

    Appreciate the various responses though Smile

  • Game Suggestions1 year 14 weeks agoI disagree, I think it works

    I disagree, I think it works better as it is. In previous seasons the KoM points were closer to those awarded and it skewed the emphasis of the game too far towards picking the break. If a rider can score 50 or 60 points in a break without winning a stage or even finishing top 20 I think it unbalances things.

    I also think it makes the game too unpredictable. Unpredictability is good but not to the extent that to get a good score you need to pick half the guys in the break.

    Ultimately it's Dave's call how points are awarded next year but I prefer how it's working in the Dauphine as I think its a good balance, picking a guy in the break is good but if you concentrate on high finishing positions then you're not really at a disadvantage. That means there are multiple valid tactics and not everyone is trying to chase the break.

  • Game Suggestions1 year 14 weeks agoSome of the races we don't

    Some of the races we don't know the amount of points they are awarding for the mountains (until the race has begun), therefore to set a scoring criteria its fairer to just say 5 down to 1 if 5 riders score for example
