I changed the chainrings on our T2000, 9 speed, from the standard 53/39/30 to 48/38/24 for touring some years ago. Initially I put on non-ramped and pinned and regretted it because of horrible...

Good luck with your treatment and keep up that positive attitude. That's most important. Your wife's support is very commendable and a key aspect of getting through this tough challenge.

If US license plates were legible from 25 yards as in most other countries, many hit and runners would be more easily caught!

Looks to me like front and rear frame sizes are the same, and they are certainly not 58 cm.
Measure from top of seat tube to center of BB axle, in case you don't already know this. As someone else...

Very true: my PSA over the past 10-15 years increased slowly from 1.2 to 4.8. A couple of years ago it was 4.1, so my doc told me to stay off the bike for a week and repeat the test. It came back at...

Hi PMK - you shouldn't have mentioned Di2 because it's given me more ideas, but perhaps I should confine that one to our Macchiato. Now that it's almost stripped down, the Los Dos frame is really...

Cannondale Los Dos, '95 or'96 renovate or trash?

I have recently taken back from a friend a Los Dos, which we sold them in 2006. It has been stored for four years (in a salty atmosphere) since the stoker passed away and the wife kept it for...

I'm not sure of the relevance of "Of course, being British TV," but, it's British humour, innit, so it might be a bit over the top for some on this side of the pond:)

Why did I buy it?...
