Italian, wide tyres (40mm). Jaroon appears to take 650B as they put them on the Rival model. Shop around.

Re: Getting cycling whilst having you family

To the OP Probably worth having a serious chat with your other half about time out on the bike. A quid-pro-quo so that you both get time out for your mental health. My wife occasionally gets fed up with me being "there" but grouchy and tells me I need to get out. This was more true when th...

Re: A loop of Birmingham, who's up for it?

I didn't do any big rides this year, but that looks like a good ride. In the Uni term as well, so could be combined with a visit to my no.2 offspring.
Are you expecting a quick sell out?

Re: UK all-weather commuter

Both Planet X and Merlin add on a 10% "service charge" if your using bike to work schemes. Halfords allow 10% British Cycling discount, which makes Boardman options more attractive.

Re: Seemingly trivial things that cheer you up

I was commuting along the canal through Deepcut on Tuesday,the morning after a very windy night. The path was blocked by a fallen tree covering about 4 metres of path. I carried by bike over it then, when I got to work managed to get hold of the Canal "ranger" on the phone. He told me it w...

For big providers they expect a well collated list of songs and artists played and the money goes to said artists. Pubs pay a licencing fee,...

Boardman ADV tyre clearance?

Hi all. I'm considering a Boardman ADV 8.8 as a winter commuter due to the canal paths I use getting so rough (exposed broken bricks). I have limit of £750 on the Halfords C2W scheme, so the ADV 8.8 fits the budget. An alternative is the Genesis CDA 20, but the ADV has better spec. I'm wondering if ...

Re: How Much Has Your "Best" Bike Cost You in Pounds per Hour of Usage?

About 10k miles on it so far, build cost was £2,500. Wouldn't like to speculate how much I've spent on cycling clothing and other paraphernalia in the time I've had it though. It has been noted when the laundry is sorted I always have the biggest pile - and I have three teenage daughters in the hou...

Re: How Much Has Your "Best" Bike Cost You in Pounds per Hour of Usage?

Remember that you save 25p per mile by bike vs. car commuting (going by the taxman's allowances of 20p vs 45p per mile) so your bike is probably earning you money.
