Which Flat Mount Spacer for 160mm Rotor?

Hello, I've been working on a bike build and I'm down to the final stage but can't find what I need. I have a Ridley X-Trail frame, SRAM Red hydraulic brakes and 160mm rotors. Frame and brake calipers are both flat mount, but 20mm of spacer is needed to accommodated the rear 160mm rotor over the sta...

Building my own - which CX frame?

Hello! I'm about to build up a cross bike to replace my 2014 Rose Pro DX Cross-4400. I want a carbon bike this time around and will kit it out with SRAM Force 22 and hydraulic discs with a target weight of 8kg. I have shopped around for complete bikes but SRAM make up relatively few of those on offe...

Re: 17.5st Rider with Tyre Problems

What pressure were you running the tyres at and how long since you actually checked the pressure in them? Your split inner tube is a trademark 'snakebite' puncture that usually occurs from running a tyre at too low pressure, allowing the tube to pinch against the rim on impact. The split in the tyre...

Re: Disc Cyclocross bikes - in particular the Rose Pro DX Cr

I've recently taken delivery of the Rose Pro DX Cross 4400 and I'm really impressed so far. I went for the 34-50 11-28 set up and that's been pretty perfect for my riding so far. I've not run out of gears either way yet and the SRAM shifting is a delight! I'd describe my riding as 80% on road with 2...

Re: Top Gear

Formulaic and predictable. Like most people I enjoyed it initially but there's only so many times you can spin me the same few jokes and expect a laugh. Everyone has different tolerances for repetition so who am I to tell them not to watch if it still makes them smile. I can always watch a different...

Re: Sky are dopers - Oh no they're not

The thing I'd really like to see is a list, a calendar or something of all the doping control Froome and the other big names in cycling have been subjected to in this season. Even more interesting would be a comprehensive comparison of how doping control in cycling compares to the likes of athletics...

Re: Was this cyclist in the right or wrong

You don't have to accelerate like a pro to not hold up drivers when the lights change, providing you're alert and move immediately. If he dawdled then yes, inconsiderate, but if he had got on with it as the lights changed, and pulled over to the left immediately once he was moving, I don't see the ...

Re: Which Bristol cycling club?

Thanks for your replies so far. It seems fairly conclusive that NBCC is the popular one to go for. Bradley Stoke isn't ideal for me as I don't have a car, but if it's the nicest group to go out with maybe it's worth the additional 7 miles to cycle there...that's just a nice warm up, right? Is there ...

Which Bristol cycling club?

Having just moved to Bristol, I'm considering joining a club to get to know a few more people and hopefully improve my riding along the way. I'm not really looking for anything competitive at this stage. Currently comfortably riding 30 miles at about 13-14 mph so looking for a club that do shorter r...

Re: the nhs

I honestly believe that the papers hold a lot of responsibility for the cynicism that so many people feel towards the state of Britain. They've propagated the false belief for so long that there's millions of people out there who have never worked, never want to, and will never have to. That benefi...

The problem is, we really are a country of people who say "it's not possible to police, what if this, what if that" and we never get anything done. You only need to read the above for proof of that. I suggested for self inflicted injuries based on being drunk and next thing were talking a...

Re: the nhs

I genuinely find this thread has dropped in quality. Charging someone for falling off a bike? Are you serious? What if this person chose to commute by bike and fell off, is that still self inflicted. What if they get hit while on their bike, is that automatically self-inflicted since they were on a...

Words can't express how much I appreciate our NHS. Sure, it's not the perfect model for the system, but it's a damn site better than a lot of the alternatives. I can't say too much more without going into my medical history on a public forum but suffice to say it's done a hell of a lot for me and an...

Re: Is the Giro being shown on terrestrial television?

Is cycling likely to go the same way as some other sports, Sky obtaining sole UK rights? Just has that kind of sad inevitable feeling about it once someone at Sky HQ notices more affluent middle class males are watching a bike race on a summer sunday afternoon than the cricket or motor racing they ...

I can't believe UKIP are actually gaining support (for more reasons than just this guy's view of cyclists)!
