Re: Which gear lever will work with a Shimano Deore m610 10-speed rear mech?

er, that is a shimano 10s MTB mech. Won't work in a (shimano) 9s system. Perhaps you misunderstood what your tech was saying, or maybe he got it wrong but that RD won't work with a shimano 9s shifter. [most (not all) shimano road 10s mechs will work in a shimano 9s system, but MTB 10s ones definite...

Re: ? Easy 100km rides in the Midlands, England?

There's an strip of the Cotswolds running from Tetbury in the west to Clanfield in the east which is surprisingly easy going. For instance: Start in or near Cirencester. (straightforward to drive there from Brum) Head SW out of Cirencester on NCN route 45 to Kemble. South through Oaksey to Hankerto...

A little harsh to say that, I have had bike stolen in the past, you do your best but sometimes even that isn’t enough.

Re: Cycling to loose weight

If you want to shed it faster than that up the mileage and reduce sugar. What ever anyone tells you weight loss and gain is calories consumed v calories burned. Incidentally Strava tells you calories used. My wife looks at my Strava account then tries to force feed me the calories I've used. There ...

Massive screen, and I can see it.

If your device is too small to see it properly, buy a bigger one.

It’s difficult fitting a 55 inch tv screen on my handlebars.

Re: Front derailleur reluctant to change up recently

Suggest you give everything a good clean and lube, then look online for how to set up front derailleur and follow it through. There is a Parktool one that is quite good.

Re: Specialized Allez: which new group set ?

The cable housing lengths for the rear brake are a mile out. Quick-release skewers incorrectly positioned. Usually bikes that look like that have other set-up problems. An hour with a good mechanic may transform how it works. Hard to tell from this photo, but I’d expect most modern kit to fit, not ...

This would be my choice, at that budget.

I would agree completely with that if you don’t fancy carbon fibre get the aluminium frame for less money.

Re: New bike time.

I would go for a Triban 540, you pick up a really decent one on eBay for not too much cash.
