Re: Bar ends slipping

I use the Finish Line pictured as well, evil stuff, certainly does the job! I even used between ally and ti to prevent stem and bar-end slippage; not perfect but definitely helping.

Well worth having in the arsenal ;)

Re: Acid Reflux - Cycling

You're definitely doing the right thing getting it checked out properly - mine turned out to be a hiatus hernia and after nearly ten years on omaprezole I'm finally getting an operation in December.

Re: Frame tracking and rear triangle spacing

NATURAL ANKLING, excuse my lack of imagination (or perhaps excess of it!), but is there any chance of a pic of the bean tin method? I think what NA didn't make abundantly clear was that the bike is to be lain on it's side, so that each wheel rim lays sideways on four bean tin tops. (It is a cunning...
