Re: Which Garmin watch Fenix 6 pro Vs FR945

They are pretty much the same watch, for running Id go 945 as it’s a fair bit lighter when you’re wearing it.

Re: Carbon Clinchers

watch for sealing issues and corroded bearings. the seals I have had are flaky at best.. the problem I have is they charge a lot more for what amounts to a pretty website, smart logos, nice packaging and a few spare spokes: a triumph of marketing over common sense. true enough. the bearings are gen...

Re: Mountains, 36T cogs, cassettes and what have you

Think it depends how you like to ride and the attitude you’re going to hit. I rode the mountains for years running 11-28 on both 52/36 and 50/34. Last two years I’ve been running 11-30 and 50/34, my fitness is still the same level but I’ve found that I just prefer holding my usual 95+ cadence on the...

Re: Garmin 530 - Mallorca maps preloaded?

My 830 was good to go for Stelvio a few weeks back. Europe has always been fine for my UK sourced Garmins, only time I’ve added maps has been for the US.

Re: Advice required re; dog attack ....

The dog obviously isn't under control or trained not to be a threat. Action needs to be taken so that one of those things happen. I don't think you can just let it pass, otherwise the status quo remains. Whether that's a follow up chat with the owners or a legal recourse is your call.

Re: Wheel Profile..Front v Back

Enve seem to have done reasonably well selling different profile wheels front and back, it's the USP of their SES range.

Chat to the dealer and see what he'll do, something like an Enve 3.4 wheel set would fit what you're looking for well if he could do you a deal.

Re: School me on roof rack bike carriers

I had a Thule roof mounted holder which worked fine, pretty secure and usual Thule quality. I quickly moved onto a tow bar system though. For me tow bar is a more secure mounting for the bikes (they are out of the wind so don’t get as much movement through the journey), it’s a lot quieter and just e...

Re: Training around London

If I was you I would do the usual regents, Richmond laps in the week and then hop on a train and hit the chilterns or South Downs at the weekend. Issue with London is it takes you 45 minutes to hit decent roads which eats into your ride time.

Re: Baselayers, am I missing out?

I always ride with a mesh base layer, just find it more comfy. I switch to a thin merino one when it gets cold. You want as breathable as possible close to the skin so it wicks well, save the windproof stuff for the outer layers where less breathabilty won’t hold moisture to your skin.

Re: MIPS Helmet

What are you basing that on? The independent testing that's been done has pretty much proven that MIPS helmets provide additional protection from concussion risks. If you're buying a new helmet now I'd look to get MIPS. https://www.cyclingweekly.com/news/product-news/independent-testers-rate-mips-h...

I use the Rapha arm screens, cooler than arm warmers and UV50 protection. They've worked well for me.

Re: Bike roof racks

I’ve tried a roof rack and pretty quickly moved to a tow bar option. I found the lateral movement of the bike on the roof was disconcerting, the noise was incredible at speed and the faff of mounting hem up there was also painful. If a tow bar is an option then it’s much better IMHO

Re: Canyon aeroad worth it?

It’s a great bike for the money. Still tests very well against the latest crop, starting to show its age by not having an integrated cockpit. Agree with the comments on the SL6 though, put an aero bar on that and you’ve something that is probably as aero as an aeroroad with more compliance and light...
