Re: RIdeLondon 2018 - start times

The clubbies are great, you can hitch a tow with them, they tend not to stack it into road furniture through town, take the correct racing line . As aptly demonstrated here. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surrey-news/second-ridelondon-cyclist-dies-hospital-11846659.amp You’...

Re: Help with better gearing.

also I cant seem to find a 11-32 10 speed road cassette, will it be ok to put a MTB one on? It's the same thing. Not quite “the same thing”. Both a road and a MTB cassette will go on the free hub the same, but the MTB cassette will often have a larger difference in the number of teeth on adjacent s...

Re: Help with better gearing.

If you need more range from the B screw, you can put it in back to front.

If you’re happy with the ratio selection, yes.

Re: Help with better gearing.

cool device, however the Q&A states "Unfortunately, this product is only designed to work with medium cage derailleurs, as the spaces a short cage derailleur too low to be used with a 32 cassette. If you have a short cage derailleur that’s right, I thought we were dealing with a medium cage.

Re: Help with better gearing.

Get an 11-34 cassette, keep the derailleur you have, and get one of these fitted in between the hanger and the mech. https://www.sigmasports.com/item/Wolf-Tooth-Components/Road-Link-Rear-Derailleur-Hanger/DOQG?utm_source=google&utm_medium=base&utm_campaign=base&co=GBR&cu=GBP&glCo...

Re: Isle of Wight cycling

I keep looking at it as a possibility, used to go there alot for holidays as a child, and doing round the island seems like a fun thing to do even if the climb around Blackgang Chine looks awkward:) ...but then I get sidetracked by all the logistics how you get there, where do you stay, what do you...

Aww leave him alone. He’s obviously a bit ‘special’. It’s wicked to mock the afflicted.

Re: RIdeLondon 2018 - start times

Blue C Wave load: 04:40. Start: 06:00. Won't even have to jump pens with such an early start. Sweet. :twisted: You’ll be in with the clubbies though. And what is the point you are trying to make? Clubbies tend to ride like utter Bell ends, all but one year of riding the event has taught me this. I ...

Re: Velo South 2018

I wrote this for a friend yesterday, and figured it might be wise to share:- I'm just back from doing a little bit of your Velo South route, the bit I worry about most. As I put 2 & 2 together I paid a little more attention than usual. You'll leave the start and quickly turn right onto the Lava...

Just ignore him, he has form in talking complete shite, particularly on Ride London threads. Yeah, an event I have more experience of than you ( and most people ). Wrong again. I have also ridden it four times and am back this year, which by my calculations means we have the same amount of experien...

Re: World Cup 2018

England were actually dier. If they’d had a hard group, they wouldn’t have made it out. Same old England, different day. That is very harsh, England did as expected against who they played, no more no less. They made the most of a favourable draw and some "bigger" teams going out early. W...

So no then. Thought as much.


I’ve met him several times, spent a few hours talking to him, I don’t like him, I’m sure the feeling is mutual, it’s more than you ever have ( or likely will ).

Not particularly, he’s a knob, I don’t really care though. You've met him and spent some time with him then? Enough to know what’s what. You walts are all the same.
