Re: Campervan

We had one for a couple of years - did some good trips in it.
But we've gone back to a car and will rent airbnb or similar.

Re: What is SIS Rego made of?

It's a recovery drink - so helps your body to recover and rebuild faster.
Remember that training doesn't make you fitter - recovery after training makes you fitter.
I use this if I've got a high volume / high intensity week but at other times I just eat regular meals.

Re: clicking sound when pedaling

Try to eliminate some things.
Change shoes to eliminate cleats - even if you go round the block in trainers
Ride out of the saddle to elicit ether saddle / seat post
etc.
It could be the BB, but it could be many other things.

Re: Cycling with a (recovered) herniated disc

I've got 2, not that I want a prize or anything - L3/L4 and L4/L5 - one worse than the other. Exercise and generally managing my weight helps, but TBH I find that road cycling alone isn't that great for it. I do some running and some kettlebell swings (used to swim which was also good) and both of t...

If you plan to keep both then do a few back to back rides to compare them.

Re: New build, Summer 2019 CAAD12

Nice. I have a 10 for winter and a 12 for summer - so a bit of a fan.
But, I have to ask - why not a Bowman? If I was building my own, I'd find it very hard not to go that way.

You can make hot coffee from cold-concentrate - but it might run over budget.

Re: Best value £1k bike atm

I'd have either the Willier or the Merida.
I have 105 (5800) on my winter bike and Ultegra (6800) on my summer bike and there's not much in it TBH.

Re: Wheel choice

At your price point I'd go for something with at lest a bit of aero benefit.
Maybe these:

Re: Bowman Palace. Hype or good

I have CAAD's, but a bowman is probably more distinctive and maybe a bit more special.
Not sure if it's any better though.

Re: Wheel choice

To answer your question - it would be good to know in what way you would consider either of these to be "better" than the vision team 30's.

Re: Whispers...considering tubeless

Tubeless tyres ride beautifully and should self-seal small punctures if you get them. Downsides: You need to keep topping up the sealant, getting tyres on can be very difficult, seating tyres can be tricky and if you do have a catastrophic puncture / failure then trying to fit a tube at roadside can...

Re: New wheels - but no noticeable difference?!?

Has anyone asked the OP what speeds / power we're talking about? I thought improved aerodynamics only translated into measurable benefits for those doing TTs and pushing 20mph+?? An object that is stationary will not experience any drag force. Start moving and a resistive force will occur. It gets ...
