    What happened to the JTL issue, not heard anything for months?

    The key thing here is its come out of an internal analysis. This is positive, this is prevention, this is what all physical sports should be doing. Human bodies can produce abnormal readings naturally so lets not jump on the dope wagon just yet.

    Yeah, I'd like to hear more about JTL. Not much transparency there.

    Result for Mr Lucas.

    Just seen on BBC London news that we was awarded close to £70k in damages.

    Not sure of the full judgement and whether this will be seen as a precedent for other cases but perhaps some movement in getting councils to meet their obligations and duty of care.

    Risk management reliant solely on traffic signals and user compliance is no 'improvement' to safety. If anything the streaming is likely to increase the hazard by removing the natural risk management habit in general traffic of watching for left turning motor traffic...

    I have been using Specalized Infinity Armadillo 32mm for the last year. About 5000 miles traveled and no punctures wouldn't know if they are light heavy or what but they don't puncture. Cool
    I'm riding a Specialised Tricross Sport (2011) That should have cyclocross tyres.

  • Turbo session at night. Nutrition help appreciated1 year 9 weeks agoEating a dinner sized meal

    Eating a dinner sized meal just before training isn't a great idea, but as far as I'm aware it doesn't really matter what time you eat as long as you eat smartly. Bodybuilders set their alarm clocks so they can get up after 4 hours sleep, smash some turkey meat down them, then go back to bed for another 4 hours before getting up and hitting the gym again. Doesn't seem to do them any harm.

    The same person will ride along and expect absolute consideration from all road users including cyclist.

Really felt very tempted to shock the horse but had I and it would have been an evil cyclist story.

    What I really don't get is that drivers seem very happy to slow down for horse riders but won't offer the same consideration to cyclists? I really don't know why?

    This particular unlikely failure could just as easily happen to a rim brake. Of course, hydraulic brakes are immune from this particular failure, unless you're prone to cycling in areas where the temperature is less than -40.

    Not really, the reason for the failure was that the cable ran along the chain stay then turned up at the end, doing so giving a nice entry for water and no way of it draining back out.

    Quote:

    I can understand worries about cooking hydraulic rear discs if you're using a very minimal 140mm rotor, but even that is possible to design out (see Shimano's cooling fins). They may be heavier (debatable) and less aerodynamic (again, debatable - I've not seen hard figures), but those are the prices you'll pay for more reliable and controllable stopping (or not, if you don't want to).

    Ask Shimano about melting ice tech rotors.

    To be honest i would never use Avid, but my real statement is i would be far happier on hydro than cable. But will the option exist without splashing out on Di2?

  • Asking for advice on a new bike1 year 9 weeks agoAfter a break of about 6

    After a break of about 6 years from riding (road bike) I started commuting on a canondale hybrid. After a few months a realised my mistake and longed for a road bike. On my purchase of a spec allez, The difference was immediate, much more speed for energy output. No problems with durability at all commuting 30 miles daily my cassete ect lasted for 2 years until I upgraded to a Ribble bianco.

    Not sure about a single speed though, I used to ride track and so have experience of fixed wheel and though very trendy your riding terrain wil be very limited.

    I must say cross bikes look good and I am considering one as a new winter bike

    I commute on a hybrid at the moment, but would like to get a Whyte Suffolk. The model below, the Dorset, was reviewed on this site recently and would be in budget. I like the idea of discs for all weathers, reasonably robust tyres and it would be good for a winter trainer as well as the commute.
