Re: spa wharf saddle

All depends on what you like. I had a Spa Aire, slender, minimalist, flat top (sit bone area), liked it but a tad narrow for me. Then bought a Wharfe, didn't seem to go back as far on the rails as the Aire, much more rounded top, didn't like it. Then bought a Nidd, tat was 8 years ago, still using i...

Re: AVID BB7 MTN

OK, this is sorted, I think The AVID BB7-MTB as advertised by Spa etc have BB&-MTN printed on them, as per their photo. So that's the model I want, as it matches what I have on mine. Order going in. And if they don't fit, I'll try again. Thanks all I've just ordered a BB7 mtn from Spa as well, ...

Re: Broken 5th metatarsal ...

yes I think so, i didn't get x ray tho, the small protruding lump on the side of the foot, was red, inflamed, and about 3 times the size. was quite sore, but walkable, cycling was ok. then one day I stood on the edge of a rug, foot half on , half off, with my 'lump' on the ridge at the edge. there w...
