  • WTD: New Shimano RS10 Front Wheel (wheelset) or similar1 year 18 weeks agoHi Andy, just saw this post.

    Hi Andy, just saw this post. Got a 2nd hand front wheel from bashthebox, so hopefully won't need the ProLite Como tomorrow. Thanks for quick help offer, though, and for the find of new wheels on Ribble.
    See you in a few hours!

    Anything can happen in these races, not counting my chickens yet. Next race a lot more unpredictable having not been raced for a while. Happy to be leading a comp though, even a small one Smile

    To Nibble or not to Nibble may well be the defining feature tomorrow in the Maxima?

    For what it's worth I've Nibbled!

  • NZ Coroner: Cyclists have a duty to other road users to wear high-viz1 year 18 weeks agoI'd be happy to have my

    I'd be happy to have my driving checked once every 5 years or so or sooner depending on driving history, so long as it was covered from my annual leave like jury duty is. One day refresh, if I pass all good, if I fail then I have to retake at my own expense. I'm sure the savings from the lowered casualty rates would cover the scheme and then some.

    no formula will take into account your hip flexibility, and very few if any will take into account your shoe size, cleat position, fore-aft seat adjustment etc. why not move the seat back where it was comfortable?

    Well I drive a Merc so must be a jerk, perhaps that's why I was almost taken out coming into Hucknall today by a woman driving her family along in a small Suzuki! But heck wouldn't have mattered if it were a Bentley! Coming to an island she pulled alongside, got to white line then indicated left and turned left across me? How we didn't collide I don't know. So lets not single out the make or car and focus on the fact there are idiots out there in all makes!

  • Ridley reveal one-off 5.52kg Helium SL + video1 year 18 weeks agoFrom a simple structural

    From a simple structural engineer's standpoint, the best way to save weight on any of today's 'light' bikes would be to make them bespoke, that is, remove all the joints that allow them to be adjusted to fit individuals' physical (or psychological) needs or preferences. So integrate the seat frame with the tube, integrate the seat tube with the frame, integrate the handlebar with the steering head. That way you save the weight of several nuts and bolts, and areas with double-thickness carbon composite. Now that would be a way to make your bike seriously expensive, and you might even save another half a kilo. And it'd not be worth too much to a thief, as it'd take a hacksaw and a carbon repair kit to make it fit anyone but the original owner. But practical? No.

  • Ridley reveal one-off 5.52kg Helium SL + video1 year 18 weeks agoBoring. I thought from the

    Boring. I thought from the title actual helium played a part. If you made the frame tubes airtight and you replaced the air in the tubes with helium surely the bike would be a weensier bit lighter?

    And if you rode naked as well..? Marginal gains and all that..
