Re: Wiggle dhb jersey

Vanity overkill :D You must have something else you can wear :p I do have another long sleeved jersey, but it's completely naff. It has one tiny pocket that you can hardly fit anything in, and it's a long ride so I'll need to carry a lot of food, and it wouldn't leave me anywhere to put my rolled u...

Re: Wiggle dhb jersey

Same batch possibly. Have you sent them pictures? Yeah I sent them pictures of the first one and their response was to offer the voucher or replacement. I replied saying I'd already ordered a new one and that they could just refund me for that (i.e. the equivalent of them sending me a free replacem...

Re: Wiggle dhb jersey

It's definitely not a design thing, it's this one: https://www.wiggle.co.uk/dhb-aeron-womens-roubaix-ls-jersey-ltd-edition/?sku=102650886 And when I say all over, I mean theres a patch of them on various parts of the jersey, not literally covering it, e.g. some on the chest, stomach, shoulders, lowe...

Wiggle dhb jersey

Hi I bought a dhb aeron jersey and received it yesterday. I've only ever had dhb shorts/tights and they've been fine, never had a jersey. Anyway, after trying it on, I noticed the chest area of the jersey had some marks on it, several short horizontal lines on the fabric. They sort of look like scar...

Anyone done a Strava Summit training plan?

I'm going to start one this week - never done any proper training plan before but I want to do something focused to try and maintain/build fitness over winter. Just wondered if anyone on here had done one?

Re: Scared on descents

Thanks for the advice (and sympathy!) everyone. The one thing that I still feel unsure about is just how to initiate the turn into a corner (descent or not). So, on approach to a corner (let's say a sharp-ish corner), you're taking the widest line possible on approach, braking the appropriate amount...

Re: Scared on descents

Why do you want to go faster? Is it because you think you should and are putting yourself under pressure to? If so, I'd forget it. There are always people faster than you up or down. In the popular areas, a lot of the faster descenders are not really in control and should the worst happen, they cou...

Scared on descents

Hi I’ve been cycling for a few years now, but something I still really struggle with is descending, particularly long descents with lots of bends and hairpins (e.g. descents in Mallorca). I feel like I’ve read all the articles on this, watched all the videos, tried all the tips, but on sharp bends a...

Chain slipping on cassette after new derailleur and cassette

Hi, I recently had a new rear derailleur, cassette and chain fitted at my LBS. On the first few rides, my drivetrain felt perfect, no gear switching problems at all. However, on Sunday I noticed that some of my gears felt like they didn’t “sit right”, like the chain wasn’t running smoothly over the ...

What gears do you have on your bike?

Just curious to see what gears people are using on their road bikes. I currently have a compact chainset and 11-28, but am about to switch to 11-34 as I struggle on the steeper hills!

Re: Too many options - not sure what to do

Thanks for the replies. As I mentioned in my OP, if I’m not gettin a new bike/group set, I’d quite like to put a bigger cassette on my carbon bike - 32 instead of 28. Thing is I’ve got the Ultegra 6800 SS rear derailleur, and a compact chain set, so based on capacity I should, in theory, get a GS de...

Too many options - not sure what to do

Hi So I currently have two road bikes: one with an aluminium frame and 8-speed shimano Claris, and one carbon with 11-speed Ultegra. My thoughts are that I don’t need/want two bikes, and I’m leaning towards having one aluminium bike so that I also have the option of using it on the turbo. However, I...

is it thhis bit? https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/brake-levers/shimano-tiagra-bl4700-adjusting-block-screw-left-y8mh98020/ That's the part, but as newer levers aren't designed for it, I don't think that particular shim would work for the OP. I just used it as an example for what might work. This image s...

Re: Ultegra reach adjustment



I don’t know what that is, but that’s for tiagra. Ultegra just has a screw that pushes the lever.

Ultegra reach adjustment

Hi I managed to round off the head of the plastic ( :roll: ) reach adjustment screw on my left brake lever. In the process of getting it out, the thread became completely stripped, so I’m left with a gaping hole through where the screw was and unable to put in a new one. Anyone know a genius alterna...

Re: Longer chain for new cassette?

I wouldn't be bothered agonizing over the length of your existing chain. If you're buying a new cassette it's always good practice to change your chain at the same time. Even partly worn chains can cause issues on a new cassette. My go-to online calculator for chain length is in the link below http...
