Re: Tyres for my new Croix de Fer build.

Hi. So as I'm torn between 28mm or 32mm, from your experience, what size would be 'better' ? Thanks.

Tyres for my new Croix de Fer build.

Hi all. A bit of background, I've been riding a cheap and cheerful Btwin Triban 3 for the last year or so as I got back into cycling. My riding over the last year or so has led me to decide to build up a Croix de Fer frame set (that lovely burnt bronze coloured one) http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2...

Re: 2015 Croix de Fer build.

I reckon the burnt bronze colour of the frame set is fantastic. I'm opting for the built CdeF in the grey/orange limited edition colour scheme but not available until feb at least.

Re: Test ride Genesis Croix de Fer.

I've set my heart on a Croix de Fer for commuting and some light touring/distance riding.... They are great (though I cannot say better/worse than anything else as I don't have the experience). I got mine last autumn (the 2014 version). Be careful on size. When I got mine I made sure the shop had b...

First multi day distance ride.

Hi. I'm off on my first multi day ride (charity ride) in a few weeks and I'm starting to think about what spares to take with me. I reckon I've sorted my list but I was wondering about spare spokes. I've never yet had a spoke fail, but my wheels aren't fantastic (shimano R501). If I do buy some spar...

Trying to find a saddle pack like this ...

Hi.
Can anyone identify the saddle pack shown here please. I think it's just up my street but I don't know what it is or who makes it.

Re: Test ride Genesis Croix de Fer.

Test ride Genesis Croix de Fer.

Hi all, I've set my heart on a Croix de Fer for commuting and some light touring/distance riding. I'm currently riding a low end BTwin Triban 3. I'm hoping to be getting the new bike through the cycle to work scheme via Evans, and I popped into Evans today to have a test ride and a chat. I found the...
