    Road bike tyre reviews

    Because I ride to work and back only, I went for the cheapest name brand tyres I could find. I went the Hutchison training tyre on special and it was great, until the edges started to crack and I have no idea why... Now I have Conti Ultrasports. Again, cheapies, but I luv em... Corneringis...

    Moderatorless

    Its obvious these forums have been moderatorless for a long time. I hear a mod may jump on now and then, but more then than now... (wtf?) Anyhow, what can we do about it? I'm sick of adds selling nokia phones and firestarter threads... :mad:

    Bum Ache !!

    mwahahahaha... only after you turn 50... ooops, did I say that out aloud? :eek: But seriously... when I check saddles on ebay, every one pictured with a cutout seems to be a ladies one... Maybe he's getting sore due to being a guy riding a lady's specific saddle?

    Bum Ache !!

    Depending on the size and shape of your bum, you may be sitting on the fleshy part of your bum, mistakingly thinking that will offer more comfort. Techinically, if your sitbones are situated correctly on the saddle, there should be no flesh between the seat and the bones, or very very little...

    Anyone Using SPD-SL's

    I have them right under the ball of my foot which means they are pretty much as far rearward as they will go on the carnac shoes. They are in the perfect position and don't stress out any muscle in particular, but I do notice that I can make certain muscles work out more by forcing them to. If...

    It's official!!!

    Ya, I grew up with both, finishing school in 1981 and going into college for a trade qualification in 1982 they taught us both metric and imperial. The only reason I usually go imperial for height is because its still globally accepted, yet when you go to a gym or doctor, most times they'll...
