Re: Thread to tell everyone what bike gear you've just bought !

As the Nalini jacket is currently heading back to Germany, decided to try this 7mesh corsa jersey, £190 down to £110. Reviews are good. https://dbyvw4eroffpi.cloudfront.net/product-media/2P79/532/532/7Mesh-Corsa-Softshell-Long-Sleeve-Jersey-Electric-Lemon.jpg This rocked up, and quality is very goo...

Your thoughts and advice is ...

Re: Ban SUVs

Isn't it partly about ground clearance? Jazz is tall but lower clearance puts heavy bits like engine and gearbox lower down. Just one possible contribution. Possibly but I'm still not buying the twice as likely statistic being thrown around. Maybe with a huge American SUV, but not with the average ...

Re: Ban SUVs

T'internet claims 5" difference, but yes I suspect TM is on the money with the higher centre of gravity. Also the latest Jazz is higher (and probably wider and longer) than the previous generation. I wonder where it will stop, this fattening up of cars :? Put an old mini beside a new "Bin...

They provide a factory fit option, for £249 by the looks of it.
It's this that was on for £149 last year.

Re: Headset loose three times

Is the expander plug into the head tube torqued up correctly? Assuming it is that kind of setup. IIRC, the one on my CR1 loosened it self regularly, until I found a document recommending 8nm, which feels like a ton, but it did the job. It felt ok, About a 2mm gap, I removed it, it looked nice and c...

Re: Best turbo trainer for beginner

I started with a £120 Elite fluid trainer, I did some 'sessions' on it, but I didn't really have a clue what I was doing, and it was hard to keep concentration, and not get bored - even if I was watching something else. Plus the longer you used it (I assume) the hotte th oil got, and the less resist...
