Re: New alloy rim brake wheels

Kyseriums +1 for Kysrium Elites. Have got 2 sets. Have held up really well to the ragged lanes of Southern Hampshire. Put them in for a service at a Mavic service centre after 3 years really good use and they rang me to say what great condition they were in. Roll really well. Available for around t...

Re: Anyone experienced Conti 25mm GP4000s II tire wall failure?

Hi all, I run Conti 4000s too and have also had a couple of side walls go as described. I love the tyres and grip they provide and find they give great p******e protection too. I'm trying something new which a friend suggested having been advised by a bike shop owner who hired out bikes and who swo...

Re: Problem with Brompton gearing

Hi. Go on to You Tube and search under Brompton 3 Speed Gear adjustment and you’ll see several informative videos of how to fix. It’s an easy fix with a bit of practice as I’ve discovered. No need to just look at Brompton do also look at sturmey archer too https://m.youtube.com/results?search_query=...

Re: E-bike hire?

Hi. We often go to the Oisans area where Alpe d’ Huez, Galibier, Croix de Fer, Glandon etc etc are. This website https://uk.bike-oisans.com/electric-bikes/hiring-an-e-bike/ maybe useful to you. The shops in Bourg d’ Oisans are a good starting point I would think. We haven’t personally hired bikes or...

Re: T7 fracture?

Hi bflk, Do persist with seeing the fracture clinic - when I fractured my hip needing a replacement my appointment with the fracture clinic identified osteoporosis. Not saying this will be applicable to you, but would be worth checking out just in case. I wasn’t aware of me having osteoporosis until...

Re: Tarmac vs Roubaix

Dear Espon123, I got a Tarmac Disc late last year and really like it. First off it’s a very comfortable bike but it’s also very quick too. It will do everything very very capably. I have found it to climb really well in particular. I agree with the comments of others re comfort, agility and speed. I...

Re: Getting started with a wattbike

Hi Kingrollo. My cheap and cheerful gym also bought a couple of Wattbike Pros a few years back and I so enjoyed using one that I ended up buying one! They are fantastic durable machines and for me give a close experience to being out on the road. I started off using it without any of the apps and ju...

Re: What can I eat that will boost my cycling, I'm on a Low Fibre Diet..

Hi Tony, I’m sorry to hear about your dietary problems. I suffered like you in many similar ways until I eventually got diagnosed as having full Coeliac disease after blood tests, stomach probe and also my daughter having the same condition. The reason I am posting is that there are some interesting...

Re: Technical lightweight cycling cap

I never used to wear caps when I cycled for many years. However, over last couple of years I have found myself using them more and more. Just got in from my evening ride having tried out my new lightweight Castelli AC Cycling Cap. Really impressed with how it dealt with sweat on this very warm eveni...

Re: Cero AR30 wheels. Any users?

Carbon wheels with disc brakes will be absolutely fine, enjoy riding them in the Alps. I was responding to the OP who is looking for rim brake wheels.[/quote] Thanks Joe. That’s reassuring! It did pose me an interesting thought. I’ve kept the stock wheels which aren’t bad DT Swiss and also have the ...

Re: Garmin Connect syncing to Strava - Anyone else have problems?

Quick update. Did a ride this evening and it loaded onto Garmin Connect and then onto Strava in the quickest time ever!
If only it was always this good. Just glad they have it sorted for now!

Thanks all. It is interesting to hear that others have been affected too. I’m going to have a go at a manual upload tomorrow. Still don’t think there is syncing happening and I’ve tried by both iPhone and Laptop etc. Let’s hope it gets sorted! I like my Garmin gear, but am beginning to lose patience...

Thank you Gethinceri. I will attempt this too. This is definitely the longest wait time ever for it to load. I tried a short ride just now without success still!

Re: Cero AR30 wheels. Any users?

I'd only get new wheels if you want some 45-50mm deep carbon ones, as you're heading to the Alps then you probably won't want carbon wheels. Hi. Saw this from JoeTotale and it got me really thinking about my forthcoming trip to the Alps. I’ve ridden Mavic Kysrium Elites for the last few years and th...

Hi all, Did a good ride yesterday. Uploaded it to Garmin Connect from my Edge 520 and it’s sat on there without linking to Strava as it normally does. On occasion I’ve had to wait some time. This time nothing is happening. I saw that there had possibly been a major outage, but that this had been fix...
