Re: Will I be wasting money?

Its your cash, but imho NO bike is worth £4000. Daft. Carbon everything that will ride like a pneumatic drill and go in the bin when it breaks. A Bugatti La Voiture Noire isn't worth $12.5M+ but I'd still buy one if I had the spare cash!Infact I'd settle for a $2.5m Veyron but still hope! It's only...

Re: Two separate threads?

The people who like helmets and want to tell people why they like them and why they wear them, can post on one thread. The other side of the house, can post on another thread about why they don't like them and why they don't wear them and why they want to tell people about it. Seems simple to me. A...

Re: Of a peaked cap with mesh insert in peak?

To all those suggesting a traditional cycling cap where you can flip the peak up. I wimped out of mentioning that I wear it under a cycle helmet (to avoid instant flame wars). The cycle helmet prevents me from flipping up the peak of the cap (or twizzling it around, or perching it over one ear, or....

Re: Will I be wasting money?

If you have the money,want to spend it and won't miss it the why not? As others have said you can get a perfectly good bike for £1-2k but it's your money! Ask yourself do you want di2??? A question I pondered over for a while."Do I want or need Di2"? I now have Di2 and the question has bee...

although they both have perfectly good premises already There's two new lights in the sky near me, that seem to be replaced regularly. I'm puzzled 'cos yesterday, there was a perfectly good, bright, yellow light in the sky, which was there nearly all day. I don't know why it's replaced every day. T...
