    That Ponferrada MUP is the absolute worst for that.

    FWIW, I've found on my spare bike the 39 with a 13-26 cassette leaves me with nearly the same lack of a flat cruising gear as my 34 with a 12-27. If I were to go back to a triple, I'd prefer it be...

    I averaged just over 50kph on a recent ride over rolling countryside in northwestern Spain, but it was only 47.1kms, so probably doesn't count for this thread.

    Check Miche's site, they do Campy-compatible cassettes for slightly less. Though I don't think they do any different ratios.

    Are you completely opposed to an Apex WiFli group with a compact? 50/34 with a 12-32 10spd will give you big range, a slightly less low lowest gear, and close spacing in your upper range.

    A friend bikes with his Lumia 1520 in his pocket and has no problems with it. I keep my 4s in a ziploc with my wallet.

    Shimano or SRAM 10-speed cassettes can be had on eBay for prices starting at around $30. The next question is what gearing range you want on it. You might need to buy a cassette remover tool, which...

    Athena, you say? My friend might be interested in what your friend has to offer.

    If you have non-indexed d/t shifters, then pretty much anything will work. You should follow up with dtrain.

    That would probably mean going from 126mm rear spacing to 130. If you have a steel frame, you can "cold set" your stays, but you're stuck if you have Aluminum.

    Greg Lemond popularised them for all of 15 minutes and then the UCI decided they looked stupid and banned them.

    I thought they looked cool at the time as well, but looking back I wonder just how...

    I sometimes pull up on the flats when I think of it, but it takes a lot of concentration. I often find myself naturally pulling up on steep climbs or when starting off in a high gear, basically any...

    And that would appear to be that.

    It'd be great to see all the top riders from the Giro, Tour and Vuelta from this year, go all out in at least one of the GTs next year. From what I can see, only...

    Has anyone tried these Wrapz from the UK? The demo looks like the light-change is seriously quick, though it's clearly not real-use conditions.

    I got those at Performance. There are a few Shimano variations on the same theme that are always in stock there. Google "Campus pedals" and see what comes up.

    He's selling cliplesses.


    How much time do you spend off the bike on your rides? That will be an important factor in your decision, whether to go for a recessed cleat (2-hole) or non-recessed (2...

    'Twould absolutely be a nightmare, and no doubt a lot more expensive than a regular chain. Hence why I'm wondering if they're ever going to be sold pre-assembled.

    I was out on a regular ride last week with a guy who has a Strava account, but rarely records his rides for it. We were close to home and he picked up the pace on a downhill. I was hanging onto his...

    Any estimate on when we can expect full chains of quick links, so we can do away with the pin-pusher removal tool altogether? Or is that a silly question and Park will be making chainbreakers til...

    Traffic is my chief concern. I'm always convinced there's a pickup barrelling up the road towards me that I'm just not seeing/hearing. I once flew round a blind corner at speed when I was 14 or 15,...

    I'd partially agree with this. Maybe take the decals off the wheels, though? The Vuelta logos are very busy, and distract from the star of the show, which is the frame.

    Either way, gorgeous build....

    I had none since getting new tires about 2000 miles ago. Then I made the fatal error of mentioning on here how pleased I was with the durability of the rubber. Boom, 4 flats in the space of 5 rides....
