    This has probably been asked already but anyone know any good artists in Berlin?

    i think the best option might be to get the bike as close to £1000 as possible to get the bike2work saving and then add the Shimano front wheel and lights of my choosing.

    Quick question about lighting. The two Dynamo optiona, Shimano and SON, are vastly different prices. Is the benefit entirely weight or is the SON hub better at power generation?

    After some recent trips to Berlin, I don't see the point in a commuting bike without Dynamo lights now.*

    *even though I have two exposure Joysticks.

    To be honest I'm not sure if/when he'll be taking orders. When I ordered this he seemed keen to opening it up but I talked to him yesterday and now I think he's wanting avoid having to deal with orders for people he doesn't know.

    My girlfriend currently has the turbo below but is looking for something quieter. She doesn't want to spend much more than £150. I'm assuming a fluid trainer might be a good idea. Any recommendations?
