    Every owner who has ever had to deal with their crap would much rather have paid £500 for the bike rather than £495 in order to be in a better position 5 years down the road.

    This might be rational, but the psychological evidence of how people discount the future means that most would still have chosen to pay £495 and deal with the shitty headset at a later date. :-)

    Thanks @Scilly.Suffolk and @mdcc_tester I'm pretty convinced I'm going to go down the shim route. Shimming the bars up from 26-31.8mm would enable me to experiment with the adjustable stem on more than one bike which would be an advantage.

    Fixed tt bike is now rideable, I just need some bigger gears and to get the front end lower and longer.

    I need a 130mm adjustable stem, with a 26mm bar clamp. I've found stems that are close... This is the right length, but it has 25.4mm clamp while This is 25.8mm...

    Does anyone know of any 130mm/26mm adjustable stems, or if not, how much flexibility is there in the clamp diameter? Could a smaller bar clamp diameter be used safely with 26mm bars?

    Edit:
    Steerer tube is standard 1 1/8.
    I suppose another option would be to use my existing 31.8mm adjustable stem with a 26-31.8 shim?

    Are nopinz happy with people buying a couple of suits to try on, and then retuning one of them?

    But what would be the furthest you would happily ride on the extensions?

    Well... @hippy has done c.520miles in 24hours on the TT bars :-)

    Has Kennaugh deleted his entire twitter account now? I thought I was a follower and I certainly looked at his account this morning but now it doesn't show up (unless I'm spelling him wrong or something?).

    At least I'll hopefully be in tropical Oxford this time next year.

    Today's Oxford TT league 10 was called off due to snow and rain too...

    Can you tell from looking whether it is the easy variety? Mine doesn't have the bearing covers that scilly.suffolk seems to have...
