Re: BREXIT - Bercow & Swinson Meet Their EU Bosses to Receive New Orders

Surely the DUP would never vote for it? I don't think anyone cares what they think or vote for anymore. They no longer hold any leverage in government and their votes aren't really required as many MP's will vote for a deal rather than leave with no deal or face another few months or longer like th...

Re: Hardtail specs

I'm looking for a new 29er hardtail with Shimano XT or XT/SLX 1x12 drivetrain and brakes, Fox shock (remote lockout not needed), dropper post, and preferably tire clearance up to 2.6". Not for racing just for laps of my local trails. Nothing 2020 on the market that I've seen seems to fit. Any ...

Re: Teaching them to ride

I taught both mine to ride at the age of 3 with a balance bike but they also had a 12" bike with stabilisers so as to teach them pedalling skills. Once they were confident scooting about on the balance bike without putting their feet down, I removed the stabilisers and got them to try the bike....

Re: Prologo Nack VS Tirox rails and comfort

I have both the nack and tirox versions of the Dimension and can find no difference between them while riding. The base of he Torx saddle is the same as the nack version. They are both made using carbon fibre and look identical to each other. The padding is also identical, the only difference is the...

Re: Best winter bibtights

I have DHB Classic Roubiax tights that I have been using over the last 3 winters and find them brilliant. They are still in near perfect condition and very warm and comfortable. I also have a pair of Lusso Roubaix unpadded tights which I wear with bib shorts underneath if its particularly cold but I...

Re: Trainer tyre - What do I need?

I bought a cheap Continental Ultra Sport (wired bead) for my turbo trainer, its very quiet on the trainer and lasting very nicely and more importantly does not fragment leaving pieces of black rubber on the floor behind the trainer and it only cost a tenner.

Re: Stopping at shops without a lock?

I cycle solo most of the time. If I have to go into a bigger shop where I cant see the bike, I take the front wheel with me. I know the bike could still be stolen but it certainly stops the opportunist scumbag who would steal a bike and cycle away on it but for the most part I try and find small sho...

Re: Used bike advice

Regardless of the condition of the bike, its not worth $995 or even remotely close to that. $250 would be a more fair price. You can get a brand new bike with modern and better components than 12 year old 105 for less than that price. Todays R2000 Claris is miles better and slicker than 12 year old ...

Re: Reasons why a RD hanger might break

Yeah I was veering towards the chain being the culprit too. It was a reasonably new chain though but that's not to say it didn't develop some kink in one of the links. The big/big combo would, like you said, have put more strain/deflection on it causing the link to pop off the pin and catch in the R...

Reasons why a RD hanger might break

I was out for a cycle yesterday on my Felt VR30. After about 30km I could feel and hear a click while in the upper/bigger sprockets on the cassette and it got worse the lower the gear so when in the biggest pn the rear it was at its worst. I thought it was the BB as I could physically feel a slight ...

Re: Do I _need_ a new bike?

Short answer: Yes. Your TCX is not really suitable for your needs. For a start its probably quite a heavy bike, its not designed for all day sportives or endurance rides. The 1x drivetrain will limit you on hilly rides and the geometry is quite racy with low stack (for your size) The Canyon Enduranc...

Re: Rear mech cable advice

You don't mention anywhere if using the barrel adjuster at the rear mech helps or not?

But like others have said, your chain must be well worn at this stage regardless of whether your a spinner or grinder.

Re: Does stack and reach work?

I used stack and reach solely to decide my latest bike. I had two bikes and so used how they rode as a determining factor when deciding on my new bike. Seat tube angle and steerer angle can also play a small part especially seat tube as it determines how far you are behind the BB but its only a smal...
