Re: Overshoes

Velotoze are great but leave you're feet wet from sweat. I'm currently using cheap DHB ones that I've sprayed with some fabric sealant designed for car interiors/soft tops for waterproofing (Gtechnic I1) Full Velotoze do indeed leave your feet wet, but we're not talking about using the full oversoc...

Re: Bang for buck options

Some of Sensa's bikes might suit. This one has Integra Di2, but a standard wheelset and not the deeps as shown.

Re: Overshoes

Agree with the above- cheap Planet-X overs. I use these with... Decent pair of merino socks Toe covers- either a cut-off pair of Velotoze* or some windtex type material toe covers (depending on whether it's wet or cold, or both if it's REALLY bad!) *I notice Velotoze actually sell these now as an it...

Aren't most phones waterproof these days? Anyway, if needs must, I just use a small Ziploc sandwich bag for phone and a card.

Re: Good Winter Tyre for 2019 ?

Michelin Pro 4 Endurance. Rolls very well and pretty damn tough, I never got a puncture whilst using them throughout previous winters. Decathlon stock them for £25 each so they're not too expensive. Only issue is they size up big so I imagine the 28mm will be like a 30mm. Another voter for the Pro4...

Re: Dura Ace 9100 chainset with 9070 front mech

After riding the following combinations, I can confirm (for my own satisfaction), that:

9070 front mech with 6800 series 53x36 works flawlessly

9070 front mech with 8000 series 52x36 works flawlessly

Re: Weight reduction advice on new Specialized Roubaix

You don't generally really need x2 bottles for 60km rides... (IMO) There might be a few factors like temperature; Normalised Power; Intensity etc. that affect that neccessity... Not to mention the volume capacity of your water bottles. :wink: Yep, generally speaking of course.... I'm also assuming ...

Selle Italia SLR Superflow

After experimenting for a short while with this and Pro Stealths, I've decided the shape of the Stealth has the slight edge (for me), although it was a close call! So the process of sourcing several saddles of the same begins :roll: Superb condition L3 variant of the SLR Superflow. Usual light marks...

Dura Ace 9100 chainset with 9070 front mech

Does it work?

I see there's some guff about new chainring spacing meaning this isnt "advisable", but does anyone have any real world experience of this?

They said same about 36x53 not not working, but it works absolutely fine...
