    Just the other day I was me thinking the world's largest online bike retailer needed more exposure.

    yep they even advertise in German and Swedish.

    and did you miss the Wiggle adverts?

    and getting their name out there! try getting out a bit they are already out there.

    The cycle shows logo looks very similar to CRC's.

    It's a really censored programme though.

    Yeah, billed as Top Gear esque, but it is more Saturday Morning Kitchen omelette challenge!

    I'm not much of a roadie, but a couple of questions to someone like Merckx and a load of waffle from some aging popstar about how he got into cycling because he liked the fashion.

    Someone lied to you. It was jolly back slapping about some bloke winning a Paul Weller look-a-like contest whilst riding a bike with some Manx bloke continually expressing his bromance for some other Manx bloke. Creepy.

    There was some Scot and a hipster fixie-riding looking dude pedaling like hampsters. Weird.

    A Karl Pilkington look-a-like did 'An Idiot Commutes' piece. The fact that Gervais didn't feature was the shows only redeeming feature. Bemusing.

    Spurn it.

    I saw it last night and wasn't impressed - the coverage of the Mega was rubbish and it seemed more about fashion and roadies than an all-encompassing bike programme :(

    The Wiggle ad also annoyed me for some reason. Obviously I was just in a bad mood :lol:

    Did you just decide to play with fire and then quickly extinguish it before getting caught?!

    The first show was not very good, last night's was an improvement. Going to be hard to please everyone but if we want a show about cycling it will need support!

    What they didn't mention about the mega was that the woman that did it was on for a podium place until she double punctured, then placed in top 50 in men's race.

    It's going to an hour long format from mid August, hopefully that will be a positive step!

    maybe then they'll be more than 5 secs of Mtb action.
    From all the photos they took and stuff of the mega, they only showed a very small part of what they did.

    CRC advertise in US and Canada bike mags too. Nukeproof ads pretty common too. I just ordered a few bits from CRC to see how delivery to Canada works out - they quote 5-7 days so we shall see, dispatched on Friday apparently.

    Well just to blow the CRC trumpet a little more - Ordered set of cranks, grips and a spare non drive bolt from CRC last Thursday afternoon BC time - despatched by CRC on Friday, arrived today - 7 days exactly, free postage, half the price of my local bike shop (for the cranks at least).

    Nice job!
