Cycling


#602

Good stuff, will let you know


#603

I must do some cycling or some exercise anyway!


#604

Easy now!


#605

Here you go Rob:

And a matching cycle stand:


#606

Hahahahahaha :slight_smile:


#607

Gonna buy a MTB so I can go on rides with Hel.

I like the simplicity of her Eagle single cassette on her Cube so wanted something similar but a bit cheaper.

What do peeps think of this, or suggest alternatives -


#608

MBR gave it a good review, and at £900 the price is good


#609

I’m a bit biased as I have two Cannondale road bikes but I love 'em. :+1:


#610

Only negative was chain slap - is that really significant or the biking equivalent of PRaT?!


#611

Non-issue. I use an old inner-tube secured with zip ties as a chain stay protector. You can also buy Velcro versions for a couple of quid.

For example


#612

If you have chain slap on a singlespeed you have bigger problems than a bit of scuffing to the chain stays :wink:


#613

Ordered one and its due for delivery Saturday :slightly_smiling_face:


#614

Gotta love that new bike feeling!


#615

Handlebar tape would work well for that :+1:


#616

You could colour-match the bar tape with your frame!


#617

Of course :+1:


#618

Nice spin out today although my legs are a bit tired - nothing a few beers won’t numb. :+1:


#619

Bike arrived in huge box yesterday. First job was to cut down the ridiculously long saddle stem which had no adjustment to shorten.

Next was waiting for pedals I’d ordered to arrive - 8pm!


#620

Bet you feel like a kid again :grinning:


#621

Hope the pedals are clipless?

Out for a ride today - wet and cold but good to be out again, apart from constantly seeing my son in the far distance on the hills …
