btw, on 22mm tires and wondering about going skinnier. Any thoughts on how thin a set they can take? (300/400 firecrest tubulars to save anyone reading up). Always much appreciated!

First, I'd like to put a D-ring lock...

Thanks Proofide. Evans Cycles set it up but I'll check the next one myself as no longer trust. Can I ask how I would detect play in the wheel bearing (apologies, I'm not familiar with these terms).

Thank you CCrew. I bought a pair a size up and it's made all the difference. I'm putting the cleats right on the ball of my foot and that seems to be fine with the larger shoes. The other shoes...
