Re: What are you listening to now?

Reading John Cooper Clarke's autobiography, I felt I had to listen to Beasley Street. As good today as it's always been :YMDEVIL: :YMDEVIL: :YMDEVIL:

Re: Favourite kit from 2020

1) Foam grips for my Jones loop bars. I didn't realise what a difference they made until I rode another bike with normal lock on grips.

2) 2.8" G-One all round tyres on my Broken Road. Smooth and fast.

Re: Scores on the doors

This is probably a daft question, but do you need to have Strava to get this veloviewer thing to work? Yeah, I don't know of you need to have the paid Strava or not. I have paid (or rather had paid, cancelled today) You don't need the paid version, but you do have to pay for veloviewer. However at ...

Re: Tyre question (sorry!)

I had 2.8" Rangers on my Broken Road. Not a bad tyre, but l found them a bit draggy on road, so I changed to Schwalbe G-One allround. I intended to change back to Rangers for winter, but I love the G-One so much I have left them on. If conditions are really bad, I take my fatbike with Bud and Lou ty...

Re: Do you strava?

I use the free version and link to veloviewer, which costs £10 per year.

It's the veloviewer bit that I really like. Trying to expand my maximum square has made me explore so much more of my local area.

Fun bikes those, not seen one in a long time.

I had my old Spearfish as SS for a year, was surprisingly good!
I don't think I've ever seen one whilst out on the trails, and I've only seen one other example of my other ss, the Cannondale 1fg.

Re: What training app?

Give RGT a try. You need to have power meter (but your Wahoo will have). There are always three roads available free of charge I believe, including, Mt Ventoux, Cap de Formentor, the Peterbourg, Berrago Springs etc. For subscription (£7/month) you can organise meets etc, upload your own GPX and var...
