    Look equipment failure

    So my handlebars snapped off at the steerer tube not too long ago. Broken collarbone, cracked / bruised ribs on my back, broken helmet and double vision for awhile. Very unpleasant and today, 8 weeks later, I still haven't fully recovered. It was a Look bicycle. You'd think this would be...

    Cavendish Doesn't Deserve Green

    I don't think it's fair that Cavendish finishes outside the allowable time and is permitted to stay in the race (and likely win green), when his main competitor (Rojas I think) complies with the rules and finishes within the allowable time. I'd be pretty ****** if I were Rojas. The Tour...

    Where is Alienator?

    I don't think I've seen any new posts from him since shortly after the site format changed. It's not the same without him - anyone know him in real life?

    Two Things

    First, where is the US and Canada forum?   Second, I really don't like the new layout. I thought you were at least going to get rid of this horrible orange colour - blue is what I read a number of days back but nothing has happened yet.   Third, do you really need the text below each...

    Brand New SL+ Doesn't Work

    Hi Guys My brand new SL+ doesn't work. The computer doesn't show the transmit icon. I've tried FIND, and I've tried LEARN, but nothing happens. I haven't replaced the hub batteries yet but that's all I can think of. I can't believe my brand new device would be shipped without decent...

    Finally Bought a PM

    Yep...after reading all the good posts on here and using the little power meter thingie on my KK trainer for the past 2 winters, I've finally splashed out and bought a Powertap. Plus, I figured I deserved a new toy. Got the 2009 SL+.

    PT Advice Requested

    Hi Gang I've been enjoying the discussions about power for quite some time now, and while I think it won't be much more than an expensive toy for me, I am starting to seriously think about getting a Powertap. I have a few questions if you don't mind sharing your time and experience. Here...

    What's Up With All This SPAM?

    I thought they had it under control, but now it's back. This is going to kill this forum - I can't stand it for much longer.

    Some Training Questions

    Hi Gang I have a few questions and would appreciate the benefit of your experience. First, I'm over 50 and I ride mainly for recreation; however, I might want to do some TT next year. I don't have a power meter - instead I have a KK trainer with the power thingie that I use to set my...

    Another Front Derailleur Problem

    Hi My problem is that it takes 2 or 3 tries for the jump to the big ring to take. Similarly for the half click on the small ring. When I push the lever, the chain guide (or whatever its official name is) moves, but then when I let the lever go, it moves back taking the chain with it...

    Wheels - Discuss Amongst Yourselves

    Hello All I, like many others around here, am trying to decide if I should upgrade my wheels. I currently have 32 spoke Mavic 195 (at least, I think that's what they are) purchased 8 or so years ago. I've noticed there are lots of high tech flashy looking wheels around, and I'm thinking of...

    Salty Taste in Mouth

    Hi I've recently developed a salty taste in my mouth. It started about 3-4 weeks ago, and seems to be increasing. Originally, I had to lick my upper lip to experience it, but now I can taste it inside my mouth. Food is starting to taste differently to me.....my energy drink, which used to...
