  1. Just bumping this to try and get the stuff back to the owner/s.
  2. If you lost any cycling items in the Cradle probably on the morning of Tues 30 June, please get in touch.
  3. Have a look on Facebook 'friends of suiker ...'. Maybe post there too?
  4. Ta muchly. Have you used either of these coaches? Preferences?
  5. A roadie mate of mine has been conned into W2W later this year. Any suggestions for a coach, either clinic or 1-on-1, to upskill him to avoid hospitalisation? JHB west preferred.
  6. Many thanks to those who gave their wisdom and knowledge. To those who suggested the root cause was...headset. Well it was loose but not the cause. Chain-rings? Could have been tighter but also not root cause. Saddle? Bingo! Just enough lack of tension in the seat post bolts to allow the saddle to creak. Many thanks again...long live BikeHub!
  7. Hang on okes...headset felt loose (swore I checked that already...) so have tweaked. Test ride later this arvie...will feedback. PS road bike!
  8. Seated or standing. And any gear or perceived torque, unless I pedal very gently, then the noise goes away.
  9. I have one of those annoying noises which I think is BB related. Diagnosis so far include: 1. I've spun the cranks by hand, with the chain removed to check for dead-spots, grinding etc. Nothing. 2. Pushed and pulled the pedals laterally across the frame to look for play. Nothing. 3. Pulled the cranks and checked the bearings for lateral play with my fingers. Nothing. Before a trip to my LBS, what else could I check? Thanks in advance for the help...

  11. I don't have SRAM so can't give a specific answer but when I was looking to fit 9/10 speed shimano to (ironically) my X, Google had lots of articles on compatability of components. Worth a search?
  12. Endura Xtract roubaix l/s jersey is very good. Cycle lab used to stock. Base Layer, Endura and perhaps a gilet and the cradle is a happier place in winter.
  13. Very smart looking X. Not as smart as mine though...????
  14. My bars are subtly flared at 12.5 degs I think. That gives me 46cm between the hoods yet 52cm between the tips of the bar ends. I've found that the best of both worlds, road-like on the hoods yet a little more open in the shoulders in the drops. Also very useful for clearance for a bar bag or roll bag.
  15. I doubt my 30 sec power matches her 1 hour...????
  16. You mean Lance Gunderson? America the melting pot...
  17. Ta muchly. More to this power mularky than meets the eye! One day, when I'm big perhaps...
  18. I'm intrigued and confused...what would make a hill physiologically easier for you (lower %hr) when generating the same %FTP? Are you saying that one would get differing values of FTP on the flat vs a hill for instance? If so, why would that be? Any thoughts? Or have I the wrong end of the stick?
  19. The vegan-friendly status starts to be eroded if certain processing aids are used e.g. gelatin and isinglass. Some would argue that as yeast is a single-celled organism that its use in brewing is non-vegan but it's a weak argument.
  20. Your nearest bikeshop is the place to start...
