Last weekend I went for a ride with some mates and as the chat was primarily about bikes we got onto the topic of how reliable bike components are these days which got us thinking about high life components that still work flawlessly.
As combined brake levers/gear shifters are continually used on every ride making 100's of gear shifts, this is the component we concentrated on. They must still work without skipping a beat to qualify and must be index shifting (none of this old skool style:-):
My particularly poor effort are: Shimano Ultegra at 4,700miles
AlbaRosa Cycling Club are hosting the first of many races at Dishforth Airfield in North Yorkkshire on Saturday May 25th.

Come along and have a laugh
Hello all, I've been into triathlon for the last few years and have completed up to and including a 70.3. I'm entered in IM Wales this year but, like so many people, am seriously losing my motivation and the thought of stealing every weekend for the next 4.5 months from my wife just isn't doing it for me just now. I am fully aware that no one gives a monkey's whether I complete an IM other than me - but what I really enjoy is riding my bike. To that end I'm really curious to know what my best path into (very!!) low end racing is likely to be, in terms of events etc. Should I look at a crit?
Some of us, pride ourselves on the knowledge (or not) of which DS from a small pro continental team is going to perform well each race/stage.
Well how about showing how popular your picks were with other players.
Simple scoring system, once the transfer window is closed, go to pick a team. select "all riders" order "popularity", if one of your riders (the are highlighted to make it easy) is in the 1st 12 spots you score 0, for each rider in the 13-25th spot 1 point per rider, for each rider on the 2nd page (25th to 50th) 2 points, 3rd page 3 points, 4th page 4 points etc.
