Slow down a bit, the distance will be no problem.

Under the bb shell, there should also be a barcode sticker near the bottom of the down tube.

Re: ultegra di2 6870m out dated?

I have the “old” version and it works perfectly, although I have no idea what additional features the newer version offers . . .
The one on sale is only 53/39Tx11-28 170mm crank though . . .

Re: Carbon aero bars from China

Fair point and they were probably a poor example, can you recommend any companies? Farsports is the only one I am familiar with but they don’t appear to sell bars.

Carbon aero bars from China

Anyone bought carbon aero bars from China?

Something like this:
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3242382757

Were they ok or are they likely to be rubbish?

Re: Anyone on here using Continental GP5000 clincher tyres?

I have them on my Enve 3.4s, all good so far, easy to fit, roll nicely, no odd noises either . . . might try some latex tubes in them next.

Re: Conti GP5k TL

Has anyone tried fitting these to Giant SLR1 wheels? They are about 2 years old so probably not the latest model. Was thinking about fitting some to Mrs M’s bike but won’t bother if they are a ***** to get on and off . . . currently running Pirelli Cinturatos but they seem a bit draggy . . .

Re: Land's End to Bristol route

Take a look at the Deloitte Ride Across Britain route, second day ends in Bath but I’m sure you could amend the route to finish in Bristol.

Re: Time to upgrade stock tubeless tyres

Same wheels on partners Liv, replaced the stock Giant tyres with Pirelli Cinturato, fairly good rolling resistance, not the lightest but good puncture resistance . . . the other option was GP5000 TL with almost the least rolling resistance of any clincher, but couldn’t get hold of any at the time . ...

Re: Trek Domane 54 or 56 (pics included)?

If you're worried about 'only' having a 5-6cm drop from saddle to bar, then the Domane may be the wrong geometry in the first place as it's one of the most upright riding Endurance bikes (very mild stack to reach ratio). In fact that's one of the reasons I chose it. This ^^ I think you should stop ...

Re: Getting the right bike size

Find somewhere that does Guru bike fit, they will be able to tell you which bikes are most likely to be suited to you. Buy the bike after the bike fit, not before.

Re: Chain hitting crank arms??

I think you need to take the bike into your local bike shop and speak to someone who knows what they are doing, I can’t imagine any scenario where your chain can hit your crank arms . . . .

If you need that many spacers under the stem I’d say that the front end is too low for you . . .
