    Sad to see the black sign, RIP rider.

    Sounds good enough my my meager needs. Thanks.

    @snottyotter I'll be getting some of the 2fo ones after payday, I assume you've been using the "clip" SPD ones? How well do you think the upper part of the shoe is connected to the base?

    I was really happy with my Sidi Dominators in terms of durability (can't use them for my current purpose as they're not very good for walking in) but I've had some casual SPD shoes before & I ended up ripping the top part of the shoe away from the bottom over the course of winter...

    I'm sure there used to be a tool that let you compare two riders segments without having to go to each leader board & look but I can't find it now. Anyone know if this still exists (or a work around)?

    I'm having vague recollections an ongoing argument on here regarding the relative merits of apple pie vs apple crumble. Anyone remember the outcome of that?

    My parents very generously bought me a Bose sound link mini for my birthday last week, I have to say it sounds incredible for something so small to my ears! Bluetooth & wired connections, claimed battery life seems good (we'll see), reassuring weight whilst not being too heavy. Would definitely recommend.

    I'm going back to clipless after the next payday - my trainers have been wet since last Wednesday! I wear the same trainers to cycle in every day then change into shoes at work anyway so I don't know why I haven't gone back before now.

    Those new Specialized spd trainers are looking very tempting.

    "Fasted commutes" sounds like the 5:2 diet for mamils, I'll be quite sad if that's actually become a thing. Eating breakfast, pissing & reading the paper are all things that should be done once you've logged in at work.

    Done. If you could find a way to convince Selle Italia to make the Flite Gel Flow the way they used to before they turned it into "max" that would be great.

    Saw someone wearing one of the helmets the other day & it got me interested. I know the styling is not for some but for me it looks similar to those POC ones which I also quite like.

    Has anyone got one? I may be in the market for a new commuting helmet & the head lighting seems like a decent idea to me. I'm a bit worried about overheating in one though - compared to my Giro Aeon this looks like it'll be an oven, any feedback on ventilation & comfort would be appreciated...

    Had a guy try to force me into the kerb twice today along Edgware Road, not really sure why as the other lane was mostly empty, he was shouting something completely incomprehensible whilst gesticulating wildly as he went past.

    I've reported him to Roadsafe as it was of a strange one - keep yours eyes open because he's a right menace:
