viewtopic.php?f=40042&t=13104779 has a 100mm Contact, but going on posts from a while back and being a tall lad, I suspect you want a 120mm or even a 130mm version.

My advice is that these stems are fine, cheap and compatible - https://www.tredz.co.uk/.Giant-Connect- ... _74809.htm

If you need something exotic then you will have to bodge it in some fashion (ie cable tie the conduct unit below the stem), but there is lots of scope to vary reach and rise with handlebars if so inclined, and you want a neat solution.

I can't recall where my buddy ordered a Conduct system from recently but he said it came in bits and without fluid - I'm going to give him a hand putting it all together (I've got one up and running which I've bled previously) but with the weather turning it has become a less pressing matter.

Having done a few bleeds now, my best advice is, take your time and let gravity do the work - don't try to rush things with syringes etc as this just tends to end up with air sneaking into the system in one place or another.

Edit: Few good deals on 105 7000 and Ultegra 8000 bikes in https://www.planetx.co.uk/c/q/deals/cle ... =price-asc , some rim and hydraulic disc under £1k.

Have people managed to get those Morvelo codes to work on sale stuff? Doesn't seem to work for me, just says that the code isn't valid.

Was on all weekend apparently, only saw it this morning when expired, but literally just clicked through the link and they're back down to £19.75.

Used one of these all winter on the turbo, did the job, couldn't say if there are fans that turnover more air around that price as it's the first fan I've bought in ~20 years!

Doesn't look like it applies for this fan, but worth noting that Amazon is now on the Quidco cashback site.

Make extra space, spend a few quid more and buy something that can blow your face off...

Delighted they do not have a 54 in stock is all I will say :lol:
