If you go from Poole to St Malo you can go via the Channel Islands? I'll give you a place to stay.

That's a sick bike! I think you forgot to rotate your chain guide up though. I took this thing out today, still have to do all the hydraulics internally.

Got rid of the Chinese wheels for peace of mind. Hope Mono RS hubs on Archetypes.

Looks amazing except for the elephant tusk handlebars. Surprised you can even reach the drops without dislocating your spine.

I ran ahead a bit and hid, dropped my jeans and took my top off and started chasing them whilst spraying beer all over them and making weird noises.

Looks good, shame those rims don't stay black forever.

You guys got any tips for freeing up sticky/partially seized road bike brakes (tiagra if that makes a difference)? My rear one doesn't return all the way when you pull it now which results in a flappy cable hitting the top tube and the pads rubbing which gets annoying. Take it all apart and soak it in wd40? Or should I just bin them and get something new?

Most road bike brakes pivot on flat bushings(?). In most cases, throwing a drop or two of triflow on all the pivots should get them working in no time. Keep an eye out on the spring as well. Those tend to crack after a while and lose their springyness. Feels just like a seized brake.

Take it to bits and clean it. Apply grease to places that move. Avoid WD40.

Hey road dudes. Shorts vs bibs: what's better and why? or does it even matter? I use shorts but might try some bibs. Seems like taking a quick roadside piss would be a big hassle with bibs.

Bibs are way better, stay exactly where you want them all the time.

Going for a puss is usually fine depending on the short, sometimes I go out of the bottom of the leg if the shorts are stretchy enough

Yep, bibs stay up. Pissing is easy.

Does anyone here own a FBM Sword? They are currently taking orders and I'm tempted.

This guy made it's way into my house yesterday!



Just a demo for now, taking it out tomorrow and sometime this weekend. I imagine I'll need to make some room in the basement for it soon...
