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

Nothing will prepare you for the Alps in the UK. I don't think that's true. I've ridden in the Alps and the Pyrenees on week-long holidays and I've got up everything I've tried. There are plenty of ascents of over 300m elevation in the UK to train on, and some of these are long enough to learn abou...

Re: Seemingly trivial things that annoy you

Do you have scissors in your household? Yes but even then the way the packet folds and collapses etc make it a pain. Might just be me as a left hander but I always struggle! I agree with you there. I find the easiest way is to lop the top off horizontally all the way across. That or I pathetically ...

Re: Left wrist injury - options for winter bike

You need a firm diagnosis, probably should have an MR scan of your wrist and scaphoid. Fractures often missed on X-ray, you could have broken some ligaments in your wrist. most of these things can be fixed.

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

You could try the pseudoscience approach. If you know your combined weight of you and the Bike and kit, the gradient you wish to climb, say 8% and the power you can sustain for an hour or so and your preferred cadence, then you can work out the best gear ratios for you, mainly a lower gear will allo...

I never get to see nice places that have fancy sink taps, no youth hostels, sewage works, allotments, houses, gas chambers, public toilets. I pray that I get to hell which is infinit...
