Re: QR v Thru Axles

I think this is one of those areas where tradition seems to have trumped functionality. If we were to start from scratch and design an axle/frame interface.. Yes, 100%. It’s the same for a lot of bike stuff - derailleur gears for example but that doesn’t stop people designing ever more ridiculous s...

Re: LeJOG audax-style anyone?

To give an alternate view.... I've ridden pretty much this exact route as far as I can tell and the A roads were fine. If you're used to cycling on that sort of road, and I think you are Shaf, then they shouldn't bother you at all. The pace/time limit would be more of a concern if I was thinking of ...

Re: tires with more grip?

Yep, Ardent's good on the back for winter.

Or Ardent Race if the normal Ardent tread is too heavy for you - this then makes a decent front tyre for summer.

Re: QR v Thru Axles

If you're a heavy or hard rider you may get a tad less disc rub / 'shing', that's about it. This is pretty much it. I get a disc rub when I'm up on the pedals on QR that isn't there on TA. Mild annoyance but no effect on performance. I'm 90kg plus change. I've had QR and TA axles come loose because...

Good stuff. :-bd I realise this is going to sound terribly patronising but... with regard to putting them on, did you read the instructions? :grin: I didn't until after I'd worn them a couple of times then suddenly it was "oh THAT's how you do it".

Okay after a couple of decent tests my conclusion on the GripGrab gaiters is.................that they work very well. Yep no more wet feet misery due to water entering my MW7s via the top and totally dry socks as a result. They are tight and a bit awkward to put on but once in place you wouldn't k...

Must admit, i was utterly disappointed with Once upon a time in Hollywood. Which is a shame, as I was looking forward to it.
I absolutely hated Brightburn and walked out 20 minutes before it finished. :lol:

I won't be there sadly Reg - by the time I'd confirmed I had the weekend free it had sold out.

Yep. I haven't had a bell on a bike since I was about 8 (apart from the bell end riding it LOL). A simple "morning!" or "excuse me please guys" has always done the trick.

if these bars were 31.8 and 700mm wide, they would be perfect, with the ends tilted down a bit.

These are 666mm. Surly Open.
