Re: How do you look behind with falling off your bike

I’ve been practicing by putting my left hand close to the middle of the bars and taking my right hand off and then turning my head. This is the easiest for me right now.

How do you look behind with falling off your bike

I’ve now been riding ~3 years. 2 1/2 of that on a mountain bike the last 6 months on a road bike. One thing I really struggle with is looking behind and not being able to stay in a straight line. I bought some TriEye glasses and like those but because I have a prescription in my glasses the TriEye j...

Charging Di2

Guys
How often do you charge your Di2. When I look on the eTube app my battery shows full but when I plug it in to charge it the charging light will stay on for at least 30 minutes then go off.
I’m just wondering if there is a recommended in between charges time or miles??
Thanks

Re: Sore Back on the hills...... why

How do you know your core strength is good? Not to be rude but your pic looks to me like you've neglected upper body, including "waist", physical training. <snip> I think that’s a good idea. I will be able to swim in my own pool in about two weeks time...... renovation. I will also go and...

Re: Sore Back on the hills...... why

I forgot to mention that the guy that fitted me for my bike told me to increase my cadance to a minimum of 90 but preferably 100 plus. I can manage 80 but anything-more than that and it just doesn’t feel natural. ........... normally my cadance is around 70 Neil Here https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.co...
