Just out of interest, I wanted to collect all the commercial endorsements cyclists had that weren't to do with cycling brands (eg Shimano, Oakley etc.)
Famously, Victoria Pendleton did that bread thing, but what other ones are there?
Oh, and I just saw Sir Chris on a Gillette advert.
Anyone know of any others?
Just curious who people will break though this year?
Lets throw some names out there;
and my personal hope Vegard Stake Laengen
What do you think?
Is there anybody out there who is familiar with the Decathlon home brand's Cycling shoes:
B'Twin Road Caycling shoes 9
After trawling both the internet and my LBS, they seem like a relative bargain, what with their carbon sole and ratchet mechanism.
I thought that I would ask the largest cycling fraternity that I know of, the Road.cc forum.
I hope that you're not bored of these questions.
Pictures to follow.
I currently wear glasses to correct my vision, and this includes when on my bike. I am a little conscious that wearing my only pair of (rather expensive) glasses while haring down hills at 35mph is probably inviting some undesirable incident. I'm also guessing that they aren't rated for sports use in some safety-related way for which I'd rather not be a guinea-pig.
The (at times) nigh-on biblical hailstone yesterday lunchtime was sneaking past the normal-coverage lenses and stinging my eyelids, which was the last straw.
Hi all - firstly, this isn't a poke at the quality of Rapha's kit. I've got a few pieces of it and I love it. However....they're presently offering the chance to bid privately on some limited edition Oakleys featuring Rapha branding....with the winning bids DIRECTLY FINANCING THEIR PRO CX TEAM. They're not matching these bids with a charity donation or anything.
This strikes me as distinctly cynical and has genuinely made me question whether I want to buy more of their gear. Anyone got any thoughts on it?
The spring 2011 is what I belive is a turning stone in my life: I got bit by the bike bug!
I've started cycling anywhere, anytime. I usually want to cover at least - bare minimum 60miles a week (gotta start somwhere)and thats going fine.
But I wonder, whats a good way to exersice so become a good cyclist? I confess I am not very fit, and my problem is not "producing 10 more watts" but just having the endurance to finish a 100km - period. I am lean (140lbs at 6 foot) and young (22) so there is certainly time and room for improvement.
What is best software people have used over the years?
I do a mix of running and cycling ... I use Garmin, Suunto and now Bryton products. What is the best software that people have used for analysis as well as routing. Would also prefer a mac friendly / web based software.
Have used Garmin Training Manager as well as Suunto's Movescount but want to bring everything together in one system ... I like the Movescount system for the Training Effect and the Garmin is handy for routes.
