- Tiso 12-speed wireless transmission finally breaks cover + video1 year 27 weeks agoI'm impressed, I always
I'm impressed, I always figured Di2 v2 would be wireless so would be interesting how close the Tiso stuff is to production. It might not be pretty but it manages to look a whole lot better than Shimano and Campy's electronic efforts.
I share concerns over the security of the wireless set up though, as well as it being a small Italian manufacturer (Italians and electrics generally aren't a great combo ), not sure about the 12-speed either, I'm all for more gears but at some point the dishing on the wheel is going to become a major factor.
I'd like to say "I'm in" but I'm guessing cost alone will rule me out even if my concerns were addressed, still it's good someone is genuinely innovating as Shimano have dropped the ball recently.

Great to see Wiggle getting involved in women's racing, especially going for a 3-year deal.
Hopefully it might have the added benefit of them reconsidering their excruciatingly bad MAMIL TV ads!

It's sad but I think Sustrans have done the right thing - I'd not want to cycle along a path that is too narrow, especially next to a canal. I'd hate to come off in to the canal, or knock someone else in! I'm sure they have these path widths for a good reason, after all they've built enough of them.

- Tiso 12-speed wireless transmission finally breaks cover + video1 year 27 weeks agoFirst of all. I noticed some
First of all. I noticed some were commenting on 'why wireless ?' To me it makes perfect sense. I personally don't get excited about a 'wired' set up. So wireless I think is where all this electronic wizardry should be at. And its only a wireless set up that I would even consider buying... later, in the future, when it becomes more affordable for us mere peasants who are not pro riders and are sponsored.
Secondly. I read some criticism about batteries and the environment etc. Fair call. I say take it one step further. Design the electronic gear set up so that it runs off a dynamo front hub. So you never have to worry about charging batteries or getting stuck out on the road with flat batteries. You could further enhance this by making the set up adaptable to both batteries and dyno power. That way, you could train with dyno power and use a different wheel (if necessary) to ride on batteries for those that want to race and are concerned about dyno drag.

Found myself on a large patch of black ice last week. Tried to keep it slow and steady but the front wheel slid and I've ended up cracking a bone in my elbow. A bit of a freak according to the doc in A&E who was a cyclist himself but I think I'll be leaving the bike in the garage next time (although I might not have fared much better as a pedestrian given the state of the pavements).

Totally agree; it's just an attempt to bully you into admitting guilt that you to not agree with.
The guilty party here is the local council, for neglecting to provide proper signs at the end of the shared-use section.
In my opinion the police share the blame, for failing to recognise the problem, and for abusing their powers.

I was fined £30 for riding at 2mph on an empty pavement for a distance of ten yards. When I asked the officer if he was going to do anything about the 4x4 parked on the cycle lane directly behind him, he just said it wasn't his job.
Wow there is a Santa Claus after all, fantastic news.
Seriously how many gears are enough? It seems an interesting idea however the need to run power wires kind of kills the whole point of wireless shifting to me.
Don't think McQ will be holidaying in Russia anytime soon. I bet the minutes of the meeting not to grant them a licence are interesting, if they exist that is. UCI wake up and smell the rotting flesh that you have made this sport and put it right or let somebody else govern cycling. How can you exclude the number 2 team and the World ranked number 1 rider and grant a licence to Saxo- dopeov. Unbelievable you have even giving a licence to a team in financial difficulties who have had to sell their team buses to pay the wages. Oh the madness continues.
Nice to see his brief tried to earn his no doubt high fee. There has been so much noise around Ferrari over the years I can't believe that Scarponi was that naive or ignorant. 3 months pretty lenient.
Joke or not, it's still a disturbing prospect.
dont like to sound snobby at all, but its really worth look at the top end of this price range or a little above it. as the old saying "buy cheap, buy twice". spending such a small amount on a bike would 99% of the time just result in more costs down the line when the parts wear out in double time and your needs soon outgrow the bike your on! best advice i have is to actually test ride the bikes you are looking at. if you cant tell the difference yourself between something like these bikes and the ones slightly more, then you have you answer as to if its worth spending a little more or not! just over this price point (£600 upwards) would usually use the same frame from £600-£1000, showing the quality you are buying! plus if you buy at your local bike shop you have somewhere friendly to take it to if something goes wrong...good luck with that at a tesco!
