Re: Are you listening to LA's podcasts ?

Regardless of who’s podcast it is they all seem to need an editor. Podcasters appear to like the sound of their own voice and have too much time on their hands.

Re: What computer do you recommend?

Don’t rule out a Lezyne. Great battery life , easy to read even with my poor eyesight. Will automatically sync to Strava at end of ride. Gives you Strava live segments too if you’re into that sort of thing.

Re: WANTED - official time trial result V.C.Savernake sept 1988

Re: Decibels

I’ve an app on my iPhone Decibel X which I find cuts out guessing. Avg DB in this home just now is 55. :D How it helps to know that I’ve no idea. :D but when I put the bin out on Tuesday night I’m tempted to measure it to see how it compares to yours :lol:

Re: Trek Domane AL3 2018: Advice needed

UPDATE: Evans have got the bike for me now and I will be testing tomorrow at 3pm!. Prior to this, I may pop into Decathlon to test the Triban 540 which is £100 more and If it proves to be a better choice, I'll wait till pay day to buy this instead. Evans are happy to take my Triban off me as a trad...
