  1. derrick

    derrick The Glue that binds us together.

    It arrived today, just setting it up, initial setup is different to the garmin, if you want turn by turn navigation you have to use ride with gps, it's a bit of faffing around but i soon got my head around it, just need some descent weather to try it out.

    If the 520 behaves itself may look at a proper mapping unit to use on long rides/touring etc;but if it keeps playing up may go the Wahoo route,been pleased with the Tickr HRM which has been more stable than the Garmin one I used before.

    Am looking forward to trying it out, i only bought it as one of the girls in the club was using one, we where riding in Spain there where a few people using garmins, but it was the Wahoo that got every turn spot on.^_^

    Not a purchase that I will enjoy, although gutted to say so, but bought these on behalf of my Brother. Fantastic bargain!

    He ended up paying £983.97 after 10% discount in store, plus a further 8% off with Leisure Card through work.

    Strangely, the Black decal front wheel has been dropping in price each day this week, and back up to over £700 today. Timing is everything!

    For me, not the bike today. Castelli cycling cap and fluorescent overshoes because I felt like it and pay day.

  8. DCLane

    DCLane Found in the Yorkshire hills ...

    Bought this for my 13yo as a replacement for his winter Formeula 700, soon to be on sale: edit - SOLD before being on sale! I'm collecting tomorrow. Sorry @biggs682 as I know you had one on sale but it's local and a bargain:


    And we're picking up this on Monday, to be built into a replacement for his Giant TCR training bike:


    Oh, the joys of growing children :surrender:

    @DCLane that looks like a nice one , although they are a bit heavier than others , I like them .
  10. I ordered their slightly deeper rims a the start of the week. My mate says Hunts delivery is poor and they're constantly delaying how did you find it?
    I went for the tubeless fit a few friends of mine are tubeless including a former national vet champ and I have a tubeless disc which I've been happy with (a bit of a mess but then fit and forget). My only worry on a road bike is because I'm getting no p'tures I leave them on a tad too long beyond that I can't see an issue.

    The first of my edge-mount out front stem mounts arrived today, this one was for the Roubaix. Fitted in minutes but still have some time to wait until the Hammerhead Karoo arrives to sit on it :laugh: I wish I'd bitten the bullet and ordered it a bit earlier but you never know with these things. Ordered a longer mount for the Bianchi so I can fit it to the lower 2 stem bolts for a slightly more aero setup :bicycle::bicycle:

    Delivered the day after i ordered them, good communication with them, can't fault the company, am still deciding what way to go, but tubeless is looking good,

    Ordered a pair of problem solvers v brake travel agents.
    I'm going back to my trusty drop bars as I just don't like the flat ones but I need to keep the v brakes so I can stop the bloody thing. My 11 year old daughter has stronger hands than me atm.
