    Similar to the loose BB guide theory, if the cables are unlubed or routed a little poorly it can be possible to squeeze enough extra movement out of them, usually when pedalling hard, to trigger a phantom semi-shift.

    I had a flexy frame (also with 6700 funnily enough) and it would often do this if I let the BB guide (or the cable housing) get gunked up. Cleaning and relubing them usually solved the issue...

    I believe he tweeted this, not long before the Sky deal was announced...

    Does alphabetising one's lycra collection count?

    ... however, you are right, I shouldn't make light of the genuinely afflicted.

    WRT publishing daily results - it doesn't sound like there's much potential for 'off grid' activity based on Steve's comments in that Telegraph article.... "I must submit each day's ride to the adjudicators at the Ultramarathon Cycling Association (UMCA), or the day of riding will not count..."

    Maybe it's just my OCD talking, but if the 9th of January rolled around and I was 1 mile ahead of Steve - but I knew I'd included a random 100 miles on a recumbent in the total - I reckon I'd feel compelled to ride another century before opening the champagne... ;-)

    Does anyone know if Tarzan planned to use that recumbent, or did he just wreck all his other bikes on that day (has he used it since)? I'd have thought you'd be reluctant to have the inevitable asterisk next to your total (in many people's eyes) - unless you were planning to rely heavily on it at some point anyway and therefore zero fucks were given?

    have you tried it without the memory card in? If that doesn't work, can you remove the last (or last few) activity off it via the PC? It's usually a corrupted activity in my experience (not necessarily the latest one either)...

    TT bikes weren't permitted apparently..

    Woohoo!

    Has your girlfriend accused you of setting this up deliberately to squeeze yet another bike into the flat yet?

    Not what you are looking for but I've been considering biting the bullet on taking mine straight to the horse's mouth..

    Probably also a bit of a rip-off but I don't think I have the patience to tackle mine myself anymore. It's utterly fcuked in loads of ways, and my last attempt at buying tools to tackle the BB/headset myself just led to cuts, bruises and much swearing (having built several 'normal' bikes without these problems!)...

    Anyone used that store?

    Donated... I feel a bit queasy even thinking about this...
