    Looks interesting. Haven't seen too many good fixed + disc brakes builds. This might well be one.

    Are condor ditching their orange colour scheme for all their frames? It doesn't sound like a great business decision, it must be their best selling colour.

    May as well go ahead and merge with bike porn thread.

    It looks just like the name would indicate, so that you can remain hidden in the shadows until the time comes to attack the race.

    Nice(?) but a bit pricey.

    Be careful buying a phone in north america if you are planning to come back to the UK and use it full time. It may not have access to every signal signal frequency used in Europe. Particularly if it is a budget model.

    Obviously it will have access to some frequencies and so will work in blighty, but it might be a bit unfortunate if the one band it cannot access is the one your UK network provider broadcasts most strongly at your home/work.

    Looks like it took him a good while to descend the closed road covered in snow/ice of the petit San Bernard in the dark. Awesome effort but I guess there were at least a few moments on the descent when he was thinking it might not have been the best idea he has ever had.

    From memory in the last few years the sale has started between Xmas and new year. trawling back through this thread would probably show exactly when. I think it may have been as early as Boxing Day last year.

    Also see if you can put the staircase in for the loft above your existing staircase to the first floor. Will minise the amount of the first floor you have to sacrifice.

    is athletics in worse shape today than cycling was at its nadir? It doesn't (yet?) have an a-list star to compare with dear old lance but apart from that it seems pretty terrible.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had considered that but it seems taller, wider and deeper albeit lighter. Overall according to my rough and ready calculations it is about 25% more voluminous. Which strikes me as a lot.

    As far as I can see androids are all now quite a lot bigger than iPhones. Which is a bit disappointing. I shall keep searching.

    Suggestions for an android phone of same, or smaller, size to the standard iPhone 6? Currently on the original 2013 moto x which is great but battery life is really tailing off these days
