    Break doesn't earn much today anyway

    True, but yesterday the first 12 came from the break
    and the day before the first 3

    Doubt they'll allow this one too much leeway with Cunego at 10'32" behind on GC in it though?

  • Accident with a car advise ?1 year 9 weeks agoYou are not liable at all,

    You are not liable at all, make a note and act on EVERYTHING the above posters said.

    Deal with everything formally as some(most?) insurers have a reputation for trying to drag things out to discourage you - do not fall for it, claim for ALL damage, injuries, any other consequences etc.

    They will likely underestimate the value of your bicycle too.

    Do not accept any cash offer from the driver (if they make it?).

    Zardini is bound to try again... Wellens will go out on a KOM raid next week... then Arredondo will have to go with him to defend... Stick any of those in your team and wait...

  • Accident with a car advise ?1 year 9 weeks agoFirstly, do NOT under any

    Firstly, do NOT under any circumstances admit or even hint at admitting any liability at all.

    My guess would be that the BMW driver is 100% liable as he pulled across lanes of traffic without checking correctly. He was maneuvering not you, but let a lawyer or cycling knowledgeable expert claims handler argue for you (which is why you need someone who understands).

    Secondly, sit down and document everything as it is as fresh in your mind as you can. Was it reported to the police as RTCs involving injury need to be.

    If you are a member of CTC, British Cycling, then speak to their insurance claims dept, or find a good lawyer who is at least aware of cycling, better still a specialist claims. Insurance companies are evil cold hearted bastards who will do and say anything to wriggle out of paying a penny, or better still getting the other side to cough up, so a very tough stance needs to be taken with them. If they found this thread, they'd use that to try and claim you admitting liability

    Claim for time off work (if any, as your employer will probably want that to cover the wage bill of their injured employee). Claim for all you can and do not settle for the first offer. A good lawyer will help.

  • SRAM gear lever sensitivity issue1 year 9 weeks agoHad zero issues with Apex

    Had zero issues with Apex (and it still works just as well as the day I bought it 2.5 years ago) but the right hand shifter on my Rival equipped bike recently died after struggling for a while.

    This may not even be relative to your problem, and I have no idea if SRAM have fixed this issue for newer Apex stuff, but basically the splines got worn off the internal mechanism (see pic below) so it may be worth checking them out for wear as this obviously affects how it shifts.

  • GIRO' WITHDRAWLS1 year 9 weeks agoOn the point of withdrawls. I

    On the point of withdrawls.
    I noticed Chicchi came 7th @ WORLD PORTS CLASSIC yesterday.
    I have never really thought about it before till now, but I feel if a rider nominates to ride a tour e.g. Giro' they shouldn't be able to ride any other tours till that tour is finish if they withdraw. I think this would keep more riders in the race and stop ZABEL(won 400+ stages , never finished a TDF) types even entering, also giving a greater chance to the tougher more durable sprinter's a SP JERSEY, after all it is a GRAND TOUR.
    I know they need to keep fit, but when tour like the giro has the first week of sprinting and these speeders come in and them withdraw 7 days later. I always use to call Pettachi "THE CAT" cause he didn't show much heart. He has certainly got ALOT tougher with age.
    I nearly choked last year when media asked is Cav the best sprinter ever after he got his 200th win up. I instantly thought of , have you ever heard of a bloke called Zabel 400+, Cippo, but to Cav's credit, he has finished the TDF.

    I think it is slightly wrong robbing other riders of a team spot at Giro' or world port classic, it also weakens the team as well at Giro'.

    Some food for thought Confused

  • Giro Stage 141 year 9 weeks agohad a coin flip between

  • Bike Service - What would you expect to go wrong after 1700 miles?1 year 9 weeks agoI put a lot of power through

    I put a lot of power through my cranks, which is why (apparently) I've gone through two bottom brackets in as many years.

    Otherwise, as everyone else has said, it depends on the type of riding you do, the type of surfaces and conditions you ride in/on, the components themselves and how they are maintained & cleaned.
