    Pedalforce RS

    I'm thinking about buying a pedalforce frame and wondered if anybody has used one and what they think of it. I would want to race on it so it would have to be quite stiff. Thanks

    Creaking Rear End

    I done some more testing to try and identify the problem and note if I stand on one of the cranks with the brakes on I get the creaking noise and the same noise when I take my foot off. I'm not touching the saddle so it cant be that and I'm sure it is coming from the bottom rear end...

    Creaking Rear End

    Cheers - I will have a look. Do you mean the bearings in the crank are going?

    Creaking Rear End

    I noticed my bike starts creaking when pedaling hard and am not sure where its coming from. I've checked all the spokes and all are ok. Any ideas anybody? Cheers

    New to cycling (from rowing)

    I have won the Nat Champs a few times and could not maintain 1.45 for an hour. A lot of "lightweights" pull their big ergs over the winter at 78kg but are no good when down to weight. If they can maintain that power and still not win then their technique or racing mentality is very poor.

    If you can pull 300w for 1/2 hour, you can win the Nat Champs.

    To be a successful lightweight rower (National Championships Medal), you need to be able to put out approx 300w for 30 mins.

    New to cycling (from rowing)

    I was a lightweight rower and successfully managed to convert to cycle racing. Dont expect to do well if you are just going to try racing after Henley. You need a full winter of specific cycle training and going out on club runs.

    Carbon forks varnish

    I've noticed some of the varnish has peeled away on my forks exposing the carbon. Should I be worried and can I just put normal varnish on carbon? Cheers

    Continental Competition Vectran Tubular

    I just fitted the above on my bike and punctured both the front and rear tyre on their first ride. I guess I was probably just unlucky but was wondering if anybody else has any problems with them and if there is a better tyre for road racing use. Cheers

    Headset Maintenance

    Thanks all for your help. The bike dats back to the mid 90s so hopefully they should be caged. Cheers

    Headset Maintenance

    Hi, I want to grease my headset on my old commuter bike. It is the old fashioned type with the 2 nuts at the top. If I undo these nuts and drop the forks, am I likely to get ball bearings falling out? Any advice appreciated.
