Re: SRAM 1X Groupset?

I've been using a bike with Sram Force 1x11 for the past 15 months now and ...it just works...

Re: Vehicles parked on cycle lanes

We've all got it wrong... Cycle lanes aren't for cyclists, they are there to provide a safe place for motorists to wash their car wheels This was what I had to contend with today http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc110/ourclassiccars/Cycling%20Video/6%2018.52.46.png http://i219.photobucket.com/albu...

Re: Genesis Bikes

I'm about the same size as you and a 54cm would be too big. I've 2 Genesis bikes, a Skyline 52cm and a Volare 20 50cm.

Re: Quick piece of route advice (A82)

The A82 is horrendous at this time of the year, the B862 is a good road and was a great surface the last time I was on it a few years ago, nice and quiet compared to the A82 with fantastic views across the loch and the Foyers Falls make for a great place to stop and have a break.
