Re: FS : Garmin Edge 820 (BNIB)

Re: New alloy rim brake wheels

Yep - go for the Borgs with Miche Primato hubs. At your weight you'll be fine with the 20/24 spoke options. I have a set of H Plus Son Archetypes built by Malcolm 2 years ago with 24/28 spokes on Miche hubs. Great wheels and the Miche hubs are very under-rated IMHO. Very smooth and robust and a dawd...

Re: Fairlight Strael 2 v Mason Definition 2

Any thoughts? Other than the price difference I'm finding it hard to draw a line between the two other than price. The Strael looks like it could be a wee more aggressive in terms of the Geometry which could prove more fun... Mason is a bit lighter and I think edges it in the aesthetic department, ...

Re: Which Crankset?

For alternative 24mm crankset options it looks like your choices are limited according to the Wheels Manufacturing website https://wheelsmfg.com/crankset-tech Seems like Rotor have discontinued their 3D and 3D 24 product range tho you may be able to pick up a 2nd-hand one on Ebay or Gumtree Only oth...

Re: Canyon Endurace or Rose Pro SL - My first road bike.

The Rose looks far superior to the Canyon in terms of the frame finish - particularly the red one. Red bikes are always faster. Those welds on the Canyon look really ugly on a bike at that price. You'll be fine with 28mm tyres - Choose some Michelin Pro 4 Endurance which come up slightly larger than...

Unfortunately the seller does not ship to the UK. If you're desperate you may be able to persuade a US citizen to buy one for you and ship it :lol:

Re: Remove BB30 bearings, pull or push?

Obviously the latter are less of a shock but I am wondering whether whatever needs to make purchase on your BB shell is likely to damage ...
