Re: An Evening With Bradley Wiggins

I’m going to the Bath show in a few weeks.

I’ve met attended a Q&A with him before, he’s a cyclist through and through, massive cycling geek with an impressive collection of jerseys, bikes etc.

He stopped for a photo with my son after the event with no qualms, I’m looking forward to the show.

Re: Carbon Clinchers

So I took delivery of the Rovals on Wednesday and got them on the bike yesterday. Very happy with them so far. Quality is great and they are super light (1452g including rim tape). Only issue at the moment is that the freehub is a bit quiet and the QR skewers are horrible. DT internals on Rovals is...

Re: Zipp 60 wheel - is this delamination?

Yes it is coming away but then it’s just an aero fairing on an alloy rim anyway, can probably bond it back on easily enough.

Re: Teaching them to ride

Hi! What was the first bike you bought for your child? I have a son of 1.5 years and he is already showing interest in children on bicycles in a children's playground near our house. What can you advise for this age? And can he ride a bike or wait up to three years? My lad started on a Specialized ...

Re: Moriarty carbon wheelsets

Just an update on the wheelset. Only had an hour blast on them so far but felt good in that short ride. First time on carbon wheels so nothing to compare to but seem better at maintaining speed then my previous wheels. Out the saddle they felt good plenty stiff considering im a 95kg rider. Time wil...

Re: HRM Monitor and Hairy Chest

Do you wash it regularly? I think a buildup of salts can interfere with the sensors. I put mine in the wash once or twice a week and rinse after every use. Never had any issues with mine but I don't have a hairy chest. I usually wet the sensors with a bit of water beforehand. Where on the chest do ...

Re: Moriarty carbon wheelsets

On the price front I think I’m ok with £400, by the time you pay import on direct sale wheels you’ll not be far off that and at least with this company you do have some UK based support. It’s the companies that rebrand and then charge £700+ for wheels that can be bought direct for ~£300 that stings ...

Re: Moriarty carbon wheelsets

I actually really like the look of them and have emailed to ask if they can supply with a Campag freehub, I know it’s easily swapped but I want it to be supplied, just over £400 for the 50mm seems good VFM to me and more representative of the price versus getting them direct from source unlike some...

Re: Upgrading to Carbon Wheels...

I would highly recommend http://www.zedbikewheels.com, they are well worth a close look. I ride with a couple of mates that have the Extralite versions and they are beautifully made, nice and light, ride much better than my carbon Mavic’s and are a good bit cheaper. The best thing about them though...

Re: Dreamland N+1 self build maybe

For custom carbon you’re looking at companies like: Sarto Legend Reilly Filament Windy Milla Alchemy Not sure I’d call a Colnago C64 off the shelf, not quite sure they have the attraction that previous C series have, they’re very colour sensitive and look bland in the anything but the Art Decor fini...

Re: Thinning the stable - a dilemma - help?

If the Master fits better than you’re more likely to ride it I guess so keep that, also AD2 is a rare colour.

Are you on FB? There is a really good ‘Colnago for sale’ group, you have to request to join but it’s got nearly 8000 members and will give you a good audience to sell the C40.

Re: Thinning the stable - a dilemma - help?

Personally I’d keep both, but then I’m a Colnago fan!

However I’d sell the Master Olympic, you can still buy a new Master should you wish to again in the future but you’ll struggle to buy another C40 as they’re getting rare now and even more so in the right size.
