Cycle mag cover

Postby ambodach » 1 Dec 2012, 4:33pm

Nice cover pic this month. Girl looks like a "real" cyclist as opposed to a model (despite wearing a helmet). But! Does that undone saddlebag pocket not grate a bit? What is going to fall out very soon? Somebody should tell her.

Isn't she CJ's offspring, who features in the mag quite often doing bike tests and the like?

Not unless she is called 'Cara Coolbaugh' as it says in the mag. A pseudonym, perhaps? But I don't think it looks quite like young J.

It struck me that she's riding uphill across a field. Never an easy thing to do.

I didn't notice till you pointed it out... do you know the model of saddlebag as well?
And why can't someone be a model and a real cyclist? Whatever real means.

Is she a real cyclist. Page 4 of the link above shows her mending a puncture with the bike upside down. :lol: (See other post - viewtopic.php?f=7&t=70703 )
There's no such thing as a tailwind.
It's either a headwind, or you're going well.

Probably Carradice right enough. I always mend a puncture out on the road with the bike upside down! How else do you do it?

No wonder she's had a puncture.

Riding across fields is stupid!
