  2. bpsmith liked S-Express's post in the thread Vittoria Corsa G+ Any Good?.

    Con't compare directly, as I've only ever ridden GP4Ks with butyl tubes, while with the Corsas I used latex. The Corsa/latex combo was particularly good in terms of ride quality. My lad is on Veloflex Masters, which he likes. They usually come...

  3. bpsmith liked Mr Celine's post in the thread GP4000S Mileage.

    On my Sunday bike my current rear tyre is a GP4000S purchased 11/03/12. My current front tyre is a GP4000S2 purchased 07/12/14. I can't say for definite when they were fitted (I have another 4000S2 bought last winter still waiting to go on)...

    Only have experience of the GP4000S and S-Works Turbo, so how good are they in comparison? Good in terms of speed, along with comparable protection and durability.

    Ah yes, I buy Aldi/Lidl specials as well! I have clear and dark lenses. I like to have yellow lenses too for those inbetweeny days but I think I stood on my last pair and broke them ...

    That's interesting. Very much a mixed bag of experience then. Perhaps a dodgy batch, hence the sale? Mine are 4,500 miles in without issue.

  11. ColinJ liked r04DiE's post in the thread Long distance - how old is too old?.

    OK, first step taken last night - I'm now a fully paid up member of Audax UK. Next is to book myself in for a 200k.

  12. ColinJ liked fossyant's post in the thread Campag Carbon Chain Ring Bolts.

    My other 4 bikes use easily available bolts/nuts, but the newer Boardman needed specific bolts.. I know, fix something that isn't broke.

    If it is cheap that you want then forget cycling glasses and buy industrial safety glasses like THESE. Spread the postage over a few pairs and they are dirt cheap!

  14. ColinJ replied to the thread Campag Carbon Chain Ring Bolts.

    My CAAD 5 had an old skool Campag 53/39 chainset on but I decided that didn't suit me on my mega-hilly local rides so I converted it to an old skool Stronglight triple chainset. That was a great decision - a really handy spread of gears PLUS...

  15. ColinJ liked fossyant's post in the thread Campag Carbon Chain Ring Bolts.

    Nothing to do with the cranks - it's a specific fit that manufacturers do with some of the newer cranksets. The SRAM MTB bolts screw into the chain ring on my newer MTB - into alloy. My old skool stuff is easier to sort - bolt onto a 'nut'.
