Now don't be saucy! But seriously folks, I did buy some high tecf stuff this morning from Wiggle, namely a pair of profile quickstop brake levers to go with my also new pair of profile airwing handlebars. It dawned on me the other day that I never ever ride on the drops so why not convert to TT style bars. So I have. I'll be racing with them on Monday at the Thames Turbo sprint and I'll let you know afterwards how I get on with them.

Well, I don't have a big nose.

It's just that the rest of my face is small. Very Happy

Forgive me for digressing a tad but the Nike top bought something to the front of my mind: ethical purchasing. Actually I'll start a different thread. as you were everyone, back on with discussions of shiney things.....

Very Happy i know what you mean neil but im not quite that bad. i tend to buy on what i like the look of - function, fabric, and yes the way it looks. i dont really care about the logo at all.
ive often found nike have some good gear (running wise)and never had probs so i tend to look at them in the shop first. quite like mizuno, concurve and a few others too.
sorry ive digressed too. just didnt want you to think i wander around in nike tracksuit with a cap on backwards

Last time I shopped for running shoes I turned down the Nike ones in favour of Mizuno because of the publicity going on. The Nike ones were more comfortable and now I'm having to buy some new ones as the Mizunos have never quite worked for me and I've got a problem with my hip.... where do you draw the line?

Mizuno could be made in the same factory for all I know...

You can cast an eye over the profile quickstops on the profile web site or at wiggle.com. But if you can wait, I should have them on display at Monday's race! Not that I'll be using them on that dead flat course - unless I hit a red traffic light of course!
