Re: Saddle sore and saddle choices

My go-to saddle is a selle italia diva gel flow. I have it fit on both of my bikes. But what works for me, may not work for someone else. Although I do know many other females who swear by the same saddle. As someone else mentioned, chamois cream is a must as is a decent pair of well-fitting padded ...

Re: SKS-Germany Raceblade Pro XL?

I have raceblade pro xls on my CX bike. Massive amount of clearance (I'm running 35s, even though it says max is 32), no rub. As others have said, the bike still gets a bit dirty, but I'm clean and dry and really that's all I care about. I give the bike a quick wipe down when I get home.

Re: saddle sore

As the others have said, high quality shorts and chamois cream are key. Also, make sure you're not wearing pants underneath your shorts.

Re: Padding Problems

I like the DHB Classic bib shorts from wiggle. Cost about £50, and I've done 100+ mile rides wearing them. I'm going to try some of the aeron shorts sometime soon

Re: Why are bars so wide?

As a diminutive rider, I'm annoyed by the lack of bar options that are 36cm wide. I think there are literally 2 models out there and one is marketed as a women's handlebar. :| There aren't any 36cm flat-topped aero bars either which is ironic since narrower bars are probably more aero?

Re: Choosing bikes help please

There is also a second hand bike shop in Durham called Recyke y'Bike. http://recyke-y-bike.org/shops/

Might be worth giving them a shout as well.

Re: Choosing bikes help please

If you're budget is £300-£350 each, I would suggest something like the carrera subway 2 which is currently on offer for £280. Decent spec for the price. If it is a total of £350 max together, I would suggest going used. Not sure where in the UK you are located, but I know in Bristol, there is the Br...

Re: Recommended cycling computers

I've been happy with my lezyne micro gps so far. You can pre-load routes, use the navigation feature on the app (which links with the computer), and it gives you notifications from emails/texts/phone, etc. Records stats, you can use with a HRM, speed/cadence sensor and power meter if you wish.

Re: Bike purchase - clueless! Hybrid or ‘classsic’?

Also check out the Evans pinnacle range. My wife has a neon 2 and it's a great bike for the price. Something like this is in your price range:

Re: Alitalia with a bike

From the sounds of it, as long as your bike is less than 23kg, you will pay the normal extra bag fee of €60. Does that help?
