Recumbents in the shed as they are to big for the house. TT's in the bedroom as they fit in just perfect and the rest which get used most in the spare room.
If they rebel against me, they are gone.
Up until the start of the year. I only ever had one or two bikes. But after finally sorting things out with my insurance follow a crash that I got taken to court over and found guilty They did pay out.
So been buying things here and there. Like a frame from here and then a S/S from here. I had bits ready to build recumbents anyway. So been working on them.
Need space to attempt a velomobile this winter. Gonna try to make it quite fancy, but more for comfort. With some A/C hot+cold. Nice lights. Plenty of storage and then go on a road trip somewhere......Thats the dream. Now watch it fall flat on my face

Good idea, how can you award these titles to people who themselves have been caught doping? But I still think there is a whole new chapter to come! Come on Lance lets have some more bull-sh... whoops sorry.. more of your defence case.

Here's Basso, quoted in a Gazzetta dello Sport article: "The fight with weight is an eternal one. The best thing is a healthy and balanced diet. The Mediterranean diet is perfect, while I am against extremely strict ones."
Same article quotes Contador's new-found avoidance of red meat
Mind you, I've met him a couple of times, shorter than you'd expect and much thinner than he looks on the TV.
He's going to get a shock at the Tour of Britain with our food unless Liquigas bring their own chef...

Do you think that the bikes in the shed are jealous of the ones in the house? Or the ones in the spare room jealous of the ones in your bedroom? I can see trouble brewing...

I'm lining up a new shed. Thinking about a custom built one, So I can set up a TV and computer, then get myself a new turbo trainer as mine has died.

Will have to be some pink on the jersey!
Pleased to see a British company involved. Both Sky and Rapha appear well managed so I reckon they have both done there sums. A bit pricy for me probably but good luck to all concerned.
Hope RCS is not a casualty though.
