SOLDThese have just arrived, I ordered a pair of large in the normal short but could only get XL in the bibs (the last pair). Unfortunately the bibs are too big as I much prefer them

Re: Ti repair - Picture added :)

Thanks, no not a profile change, just a poor picture.
I'll speak to five lanes tomorrow, and also Kinesis. I'm not the original owner so the warranty won't apply to me, maybe they'll offer me a discount on a new frame if I'm lucky...

Ti repair - Picture added :)

Not a great day. Just found a crack in the top tube of my Kinesis ATR :oops:
No idea how it got there, is it repairable? How visible would the repair be? (If indeed it cn be repaired). Not an ideal time to be buying a new frame....

Well it plays very nicely with a dynamo, it briefly flashes up ‘external power lost’ when you stop then gets on with it.
Strange, mine doesn't. One of the things that I first noticed unlike the Oregon which would turn off unless you were really quick on the buttons

Re: Tuscany Trail or Veneto Trail?

I left my bike box at the train station last time, they were happy to take it. Its effectively a hard case so there was no chance of getting it into the airport left luggage anyway (and the train station was cheaper).
