    The rails themselves will be stiffer than ti for sure, since Ti is quite a springy material. The shells have had to be changed for the Romin Pros, because a lot of them were cracking, and given how...

    Yeah, we're on the same song sheet. If they're more durable for Dunderhi, and his experience with them seems to say they are, and he's happy to pay for them, I reckon they're a good idea. I'm not,...

    I don't see why ceramic bearings wouldn't be a sensible option given they were installed and sealed properly - people still get hung up on problems from new bike technology from the first or second...

    Sorry to drag this back but those clauses are going to be CAS fodder - I agree its unenforceable, impossible to prove and wide open to appeal. It probably fails any test of proportionality to be...

    Looks like they've tried to stiffen the penalties to act as a stronger deterrent, which is good. And four years is about right, after Vino's ban, retirement, and return to racing inside the period he...

    Thanks Carleton, I was hoping against hope that the interwebz would validate my poor judgement if I decided to use that stem. It does look dodgy as all get out.

    I'd be curious to ride one and see how it goes, they have a very slack seat tube angle in my size, which stretches the reach out quite a bit. It's still not the carbon track frame I'd like to see...

    Yarp. I don't know why you'd go radial for a handbills front wheel these days, you'd be better off with a Shimano/Mavic/fulcrum wheelset. 2 cross is plenty stiff with relatively short spokes, but...

    Should have bought one of those. Bought a Miele without realising the bags aren't reusable and cost five bucks a piece.
    For a fricken vacuum cleaner bag. It's almost a reason not to tidy.

    Pushing pins out and reinserting them flares out the hole the pin is reinserted into - it's something I would never do to a track chain. The master links are more than big and scary enough to handle...

    True, but a lot of bikes sold these days by companies that want to make BB30 frames use FSA cranks instead of Shimano, who don't make one - I'm just guessing the bike's reasonably new and from one of...
