Re: Female riders are you on female bikes?

I'm on a mans bike, might have something to do with needing a 63cm frame!!! Ladies bikes don't go up to that size.
I'm 6ft 2" and all limbs lol.

So I'm thinking of investing in either new wheels or a carbon fork as the one on now are steel. Is buying new lighter wheels the way to go or keep the wheels and get a a carbon fork? Is 12...

Re: Btwin Triban 3 frame sizing help.

Hiya,
I'm a tall lady at 6ft 1 and a half and I've just bought the 63cm frame! I've got a long body and arms, I tried both the 60 and the 63 and my back felt better on the 63, but I might need a shorter stem though as the stem its self was as long as the forth bridge!

Re: Your rants here.

Bit of a hard one to explain but was singularly terrifying when I realised what the f*cknut had done: Was at the front of a queue at the lights for a busy crossroads (Bastwell in Blackburn). Just before the lights changed I heard a car horn but didn't think much of it. Then, as I set off on green, ...
