Re: First Road Bike/Gravel Bike .

Just about to go and pick up my new 'all road' bike (cheapie Pinnacle Arkose on C2W) Used to hoon around a bit on my old Raleigh Arena off road as a teen, then left bikes behind, then came back. Got an MTB and hated it on anything other than boggy roads, just too lumpen. Gave it to my son. Now stric...

Re: New Canyon endurance 2020

Pffft...until they start doing a Endurace CF SL Disc 8.0 Pro in a colour other than blue, they can kiss my...money goodbye I think that blue is great. Much nicer than the constant stream of black that's everywhere. Just need to find the cash to get one now :lol: I have an aversion to blue bikes. Th...

Wahoo Elemnt Bolt sensors

Can you use any brand of sensor with an Elemnt Bolt? I would like to use mine on multiple bikes, but the sensors are damned expensive (cheapskate, me)

Re: Seemingly trivial things that annoy you

I had a front hub dynamo. It was brilliant. Far better then the 'wonder' lights above apart from when you stopped. With a battery back up, why couldn't they bring them back? ...and perhaps a recharging facility from the same hub. I mean, lights have come a long long way since then and I cannot see ...

They don't have to make it easy, or fair. And they have their own citizens and interests to protect...

Re: If this was a 2nd referendum, which way would you vote?

I also don't believe that remainers all voted that way for solely rational reasons, however much we tell ourselves that was the case. Absolutely. I know that like any political system or body, the EU is deeply flawed. But I also knew I didn't want the kind of people who believe what's written in th...
