    So you wanted responses from real bicycle people but are happy to **** on such responses because you know the answer based on some article. Piss off sunshine. This sort of thing is why I stopped...

    The temperature makes no difference to your hr. Your amount of effort does. If you're noticing an increase, it's because you're working harder.

    Be careful with the hr monitor. It's easy to try to...

    I wouldn't fret about it. Just climb on and ride. Sure, it's better to do it in a quiet place rather than in heavy traffic, but just head out of your driveway and take the quiet route.

    Different type of competition too. There is only one derny. It gets progressively faster with each lap. You're not allowed to pass the derny until it pulls off for the final sprint. Great competition.

    The beauty of the multi-direction release cleats is that you can wrench your foot out at any time, typically in an emergency or just being a goose by leaning the wrong way at the lights. They have...

    I thought they were swastikas at first, closer scrutiny proved me wrong of course. But yeah, I guess I'm too much of a traditionalist (ie, boring old bugga) to be impressed by modern bling.

    I check my tyres for glass at least once a week, sometimes more often than that. Maybe I live in a area unusually populated with bottle throwing cretins but it's rare I don't flick something out of...

    All that.
    Be careful running your finger/thumb around inside the tyre because sometimes, you find the problem by ripping a chunk out of said digit.

    Sometimes, you'll get a bit of glass stuck in...

    Hold your bike over your head and shake it. If the chain falls off, it's too loose. If you drop the bike on your head, you're not strong enough to ride fixed gear. If you follow this advice, you're...

    **** me dead. I gave up coming to this place because I got fed up with the aimless, the pointless and the repetitive. Came back a few days back and sure enough, some idiot's fired up the brakes...

    Dead silent today so I've done something right. Mind you, I did use a lot of lube, as that wears off over the next few days (as wax does), we'll find out if that's the issue or it was something else.

    Glad to see someone's still on the topic. Thanks. I'll bear it in mind. My biggest concern at the moment is the chainring, you expect wear but I haven't seen this sort of thing before.

    cyclebucket.com also works ... but it insists on resizing pictures even if you tell it not to, so if they're already at the right size, I just specify the size they are.

    Masterful understatement.
    Pity, it looks like a nice frame but if it doesn't fit, it doesn't fit and you won't enjoy riding it.
