"Wednesday nights is the Vets racing (vlcc.org.au I think) - you need to join their club and then you can race. You need to be aged 35+ for this racing.
Tuesday nights is racing run by Norwood CC - norwoodcc.on.net - this is sanctioned under Cycling…"
"I generally replace them when they start skipping. Anecdotally, Shimano 10sp road chains seem to get about 5000km and Campy chains closer to 10,000km. For an old 6sp chain you might actually get a lot more - everything is chunkier so it takes a lot…"
"I would guess that at least 50% of new road bikes would have compacts on them off the shelf. Its not something new and revolutionary - compacts have been around for years, they are super common and plenty of people use them."
"Haha I agree. Imagine trying to explain it to a non cyclist. "So one guy thinks that everyone should use gears with slightly less teeth than usual, and this other guy thinks some people should but others don't really have to. And then…"
"I had the narrowest SKS mudguards (P35s?) and they fit inside of Campy brakes, but only just. The problem is: if you get a frame that is compatible with short reach caliper brakes, then fitting full length proper mudguards is going to be super…"
"Also: Josh Smith from PACC/SA won the Masters Mens 30+ race. Josh has been racing CX in SA since the very first race, and has often come very close to getting a win but has always just missed out until now. (Side note: He also built the barriers…"
"Put another spacer in there. On my CX bike I have had the same problem (Ultegra 12-25 cassette, Mavic something-or-other wheels). At first I only used one spacer and I could just crank the lockring down tight enough, but the cogs loosened up after a…"
"That's correct. Cadence means nothing in this test because its just a test of mechanics, not of physiological strain. The rider could have been replaced by an electric motor pumping out 275W at 4000rpm and the results should be the same.…"
"To me this shows the opposite - that tyre pressure has much less of an effect than we might think. Note that his 'low pressure' run was at 3 bar, which is just 43 psi. Can you imagine how squidgy that would feel! He rode at 5W lower…"
