Is there a way of getting it to avoid larger roads? It still tends to navigate me on to a main road for part of the routes I plan and it's one I try to avoid.

Not that I know of. But the navigation usually gives you a couple of alternative routes.

It's wet, it's muddy and I've been on my donkey to often so putting off winter tyres is no longer an option.... BUT...

#DISGUSTED (see, in with the twitter kids ;) :lol: )

1300g per tyre.... OUCH!!


Even Asphalt can get 'trial'/winter roadie tyres at ~500g a piece. My body fat index will need a serious looking at :(


1260g... still looking :blush:

Bib shorts.. yeah I know, I am supposed to be getting winter gear and I didn't actually mean to win the bid, but... *sigh*

Tried out the bib tights last night when it was down to 7C and didn't feel the chill at all..

Although before I even manage to get my clothing sorted for winter, you lot are talking about getting bikes sorted .. tyres.. mudguards.. what next?!

I think I'll give up cycling - it's too expensive! (he says, hiding his new car behind his back)..

Seriously though... I don'T have a winter bike, therefore I'll be putting mudguards on my "summer" bike... any you'd recommend?

Yep. I use SKS race blades which fit without needing and screw attachments which is useful. Takes 3 mins to fit and 30 seconds to remove. First fitting takes a little longer as you have to adjust them for your bike shape. Look good, work well and are light for the money.

Ooh and Lucy Garner defended her junior world championship jersey in fine style today. Keep an eye on her. I predict a very big future for her.

There's a front one as well. Clips on and off in about 5 seconds! Also it is feather-light

Hope they are. They are for my better wheels so should not have to deal with the worst weather unless I misjudge the weather forecast!

Just put on Vittoria Rubino on cheaper wheels. Great budget tyre for all conditions and will be my winter work horse tyres.

Do you still use Wiggle? Over the years they seem to have got more expensive. I do alot of repairs for people so sometimes need obscure stuff, so still use em, but generally find Chain Reaction much better and sometimes Evans Cycles and of course Amazon at a pinch.

I basically use wiggle, chain reaction or ribble for the majority of my purchases. Oh and eBay is always worth a look. I get all my powdered sports drink and energy gels off eBay.

I read that the president of the UCI is getting fed up with the USADA. It's now weeks since they stripped Lance of his titles and weeks since the UCI requested the documented evidence of the case against him but so far the USADA have not sent it nor made any official contact with the UCI regarding it.....

They handed out the ban on August 25, one month is normal for things like this.

And I have only read McQuaid saying that they didn't yet receive the report, but not him expressing any disappointment at that fact.

Well, without spitting hairs he has expressed surprise that nothing has been delivered yet.

Remember the USADA were ready to go to court with their evidence but never had to. Therefore it must have been complete over a month ago. A pigeon could have delivered it by now.

WADA code reports have an altogether different format from judicial evidence. This kind of delay is standard, maybe a week late at the maximum.

New winter tyres, a mere 920g each [cough]. Maybe now I'll fall off and have to get off to push less (traction issues, honest) :blush:

My front light is the xmoon 500. Rather pricey but once you use a light this good you'll never ride with anything less again. The light it produces is simply stunning and considering its quite light, it's still built really well.

It has the facility to aim it off to the side while riding so that when using it on full power the drivers coming the other way don't get blinded. It really is that bright. Cars slow down well before they get close when I'm riding on narrow roads because they assume it's a motorbike coming I think. Since getting it last January it's transformed my night time riding.

Looks good. But for that price and only 500 lumens, I'd think about it twice. The one I got is on the heavier side, but it is around 1200 lumens and also has a smaller scale in order to prevent blinding the drivers when riding in the city.

It was scary out in the forest actually, turned it on and immediately spotted tens of pairs of eyes looking at me from the trees!!!!!! Scary as hell to be honest

Depends on the type of riding you do. Riding on the roads I don't need every detail lit up as I'm not constantly looking for every lump and bump. 500 lumins gives me a massive range in front of me but also means the size and weight is kept down which is important for me. Also gives good battery life and short charging times. When you consider I hardly ever use it on the brightest mode I am not actually using its full potential.

I agree completely, I was talking about off road. I also use it in the small scale when in town and I have never been to a ride that it ran out of juice. So for me I can use it in all types of riding. The weight is the thing to consider with the one I got, but the price makes it all the sweeter!

Been looking at named brands so was expecting <£150 and ~500 lumins, much like Asphalt's. Main contender was this

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/hope-vision-2-led-front-light/

Due to recommendation and PRICE yours is definitely worth a punt.

Interestingly, just realised the kid has RC cars that use 7.2v and 8.4v... so have a few Li-ion batteries kicking about!!!!

Happy days :)

One question. What is the beam spread? Tight, wide, dual?

yep.

Just worrying about how much I might spend on Saturday...... My shopping list is getting longer by the day.....



The worry is what the wife will say or want in recompense!

My wifey, bless her heart ;) , runs ultra's so everytime I buy something cycle related for myself or our lad it costs me a pair of trainers or some bit of different coloured clothing :lol:

From 5am to whenever on Saturday I'm chief cheerleader at an Ultra event around Giants Causeway area. Bet the weather sucks compared to inside the NEC :lol: Enjoy, I'm jealous.

The lighting spread on my light it probably in the middle really. The bright spot is generous enough to light up the whole width of the road and then around that it spreads a little further fading gradually.

I normally run the flashing mode at disk and then the second from brightest mode at night.

Bike show 'Check'.

Bank balance surprisingly still with money in it. I tried to buy lots but no one wanted my money! Very odd really. Only a few stands sold anything. The rest just let you try things then gave you the web address to buy things from. Ever things costing only a few pounds.

Anyway, have just ordered a couple of things since getting home. Would have been nice to arrive home with a few carrier bags though.

Sign of the times I guess....

They handed out the ban on August 25, one month is normal for things like this.

And I have only read McQuaid saying that they didn't yet receive the report, but not him expressing any disappointment at that fact.


Well, without spitting hairs he has expressed surprise that nothing has been delivered yet.

Remember the USADA were ready to go to court with their evidence but never had to. Therefore it must have been complete over a month ago. A pigeon could have delivered it by now.


WADA code reports have an altogether different format from judicial evidence. This kind of delay is standard, maybe a week late at the maximum.

Do you think that UCI may ban riders that confessed against Armstrong? From what I know the law doesn't recognise such a immunity in sport yet. Remember that UCI made no promise, only USAFA did.

No they didn't. All the talk of reduced sentencing or no sentencing at all have just been rumours and haven't been acknowledged by the UCI.

Ahh I see. I'm not a fan of immunity. I don't think this is needed in this case. If whole US Postal cheated, then they all should be punished. Most of them ended their careers anyway.
