Specialized Speedzone Wireless computer

Specialized Speedzone Wireless I bought this new some years ago but it still works fine and I’ve fitted new batteries to the head unti and sender unit. Head unit has 10 functions as listed. Transponder rubber mount is just beginning to age a little but is functional. I had to extend the magnet moun...

Re: Stainless Steel Screws.

I've used Kays Fasteners via ebay quite a lot - good range, happy to ship small quantities and no corrosion problems at all with their A4 bolts on my bike.

Re: Wiggle

Quite funny story as ordered the new Roam with my 17% discount which at 263 makes it a bargain ... told someone and less than 24 hours that was withdrawn from the offer ! Lucky eh ! That's 12% by my calcs. Yes, I saw that and ordered one - Wahoo don't allow discounting and this slipped thought the ...

Re: Wiggle

I haven't used Wiggle for a long time but I recently ordered a pair of tyres. What was actually delivered was one tyre as ordered, while the other was a different model, colour and even size from that ordered. 48 hrs after notifying them of the problem, with back and forth of multiple emails "...

Re: Shimano GRX “groupset” launched.

If I select Di2 11 speed on the Shimano GRX interactive matrix, those are the components that are listed, hence my reasonable conclusion that it will work. That's not a very reasonable conclusion. ((edit)) (I'm not going to say it definitely won't work, but they are not claiming it will.) Hmm, you ...

Re: Shimano GRX “groupset” launched.

The 46/30 will run with the 11-40 or 11-42 cassette using Di2. That's the 'rubbish' I'll be putting on my bike. I don't understand the negativity towards Shimano, even the basic stuff does the job and the better stuff does it very well indeed.

Re: Heart rate monitors

I've used a Wahoo TICKR HRM for a couple of years and been pleased with it. It has the advantage of being both Bluetooth 4 and ANT+ and I've used both with different Garmin, Wahoo and Polar receivers without any issue at all - starts broadcasting both formats immediately it's put on. Still on the or...

Re: Wiggle

Rapha returns are free, but it's not immediately obvious. Wiggle are including their normal discount range on Rapha, so that's a healthy 12% for me at the moment, not that I need anything, but I'm a big fan of their Core shorts (better than the the current Classics, for me).

Road ahead closed

Increasingly Local Authorities seem to be completely closing roads for repairs or resurfacing, rather than opting for traffic management. Whilst detours are usually available, they may not be expedient for cyclists - I was on holiday cycling in Cambridgshire a little while ago with 37 miles done and...

Re: Pressure gauge

Yes, leakage and it read that it lost 0.5 bar each time I tried to take a reading! Will certainly report back in due course.

Re: Pressure gauge

Timely, and by conicidence I have also recently bought and returned the fancy Topeak digital gauge (hopelessly unusable) and an unbadged version of the Schwalbe one (equally hopeless). Will order one from the UK outlet.
