How long is a piece of string I suppose, but I have a cut on the rear tire - a Michelin Pro Race. It's just under a cm across and seems quite deep, though I don't think I can see the tube through it. What's the general consensus on this? Is it ok to ride as I want to go out for a 120km route tomorrow. The thought of it blowing 60km away from home doesn't thrill me! Anyone any opinions on this? Thanks.

Hi Richard, I've PM'd you with the email address of a friend of mine. He's a Felt dealer and says he's happy to answer any questions you might have. He'll be up front with you about the whole thing.
I'm 6'5" and I ride a Trek. They make a 63cm frame in most of their road bike range and it's a good fit for me.

Does anyone have opinions about which of these or others might be the best to get starting out? I would like it to last at least 2 years before upgrading. You're in the same position I was in a year ago! Best bet is to look for a new 2004 / 2005 model rather than the...
I imagine that taking magnesium neat probably isn't a good idea, so what's the best way to increase daily intake?

Thanks for your comments, I'll have a good look at my setup.
I've been to see the Doc about a very gentle tingling in the left arm, neck and lower shoulder. He doesn't seem to be worried about it but thought I would see if anyone else has these symptoms and what they have done about it. The tingling is so gentle that a lot of the time I don't even notice it! I seem to remember a while ago that I used to get tingling in the left hand a little when cycling, but that seems to have stopped now. I'm beginning to think that a lot of it...

Then its unobtrusive and you can easily swap directions for different rides. Dont every have to worry about fumbling with a map then, people will think your just checking out your wattage on your computer. I use a similar method to this, I use zip ties rather than tape (just cos...
Found the problem, Yes indeed, it was a bomb. Actually, may have been the left crank, I tightened it by an eighth of a turn and so far the noise has gone. Still, it's come back before so I'll keep an eye on it.
