Yeah, basically the dyno lights seem to be rated differently to the battery ones. I have some mega lumen Lumicycle Halide lights, but they're about 15 years old now, I lost a bulb in one, and a repla ...

I still race on 9spd, never been a limiting factor for me. Tried 10 & 11, but gone back as they're more hassle to setup, maintain and need more fiddling, chains and sprockets chew through faster ...

I've got too many, but 2 stand out - my '95 Colnago Super Piu, with record 9spd and Delta brakes and custom paint. Fabulous bike that I love to ride. 8.9Kg without bottles / pump / tools.

About to pull the trigger on a Dynohub wheel from Spa Cycles and a B&M 100Lux light from Rose Bikes to go with it. No more faffing with batteries, superb light penetration and spread without melti ...

One of the issues is that the Swim at Aberfeldy is rarely above 14-16C, and has been as low as 12C. That is very different from pool, and frankly, since I moved up I've been a big believer in acclimat ...

The bike itself may be 10% more aero, but the rider is about 80%+ of the total drag. So that's now down to a 1-2% improvement overall. Worth having? If you're within 1-2% of the sharp end, yes, otherw ...

Can't imagine anything worse than holidaying in the UK. We only holiday here to visit family, otherwise we go somewhere warmer, drier, and less up it's own *rse. Generally holiday facilities in the U ...

9.5 cold? We were in at Ayr this weekend, 4.3C in the sea, 3.6C in the river Doon, air temp was -2C. 9.5 is tropical.

I was thinking if it got over 8 I'd be happy without buddy. Unless anyone wants ...

I go swimming in my local river, and the misses bought me one of those orange inflatable bags (great bit of kit by the way). I just put my Garmin Edge 200 in it, already started, and it works great.

Going to be in Peterborough from 14-22 Oct for father-in-law's funeral. I've got the Scottish Masters 1,500 swim champs 2 weeks later. Anyone know what swim venues / masters / trip clubs are around?
