    Best of luck finding Omniums on sale. I don't know if they ever are, as they're a 'premium' product. Post in here if you do get lucky though!

    I don't really know what I'm trying to say. I would like to think that we had got to a point where female athletes were respected for their performance in their sport, rather than their tits. There are still many sporting areas where women's input isn't as respected as men's (football, rugby etc), but one would hope that in a sport where women had had LOTS of success in the last few years, we would have got past the need to sexualise them.

    Just when you think that society has moved on, you see the abuse directed at Rebecca Adlington because of her looks.

    Speaking of sexualising sportspersons:

    Phwoar.

    Well indeed. I don't see why its necessary for professional athletes to have to take their clothes off for a calendar. It's particularly grueling when it's cycling as it's meant to be a sport for everyone, but shit like this makes it look like F1.

    I use the classifieds quite a lot as the stuff I'm after usually goes cheap on there coz it's not made of crabon. It was depressing seeing this this morning, thankfully there's been a bit of a reaction on Twitter, so I'm not totally on my own in my disgust.

    I don't know where else to post this but it's really irked me and I feel in need of some backup.

    I know Bike Radar is shit, but why do they feel the need to run with this sort of sexist nonsense? To me it confirms my belief that cycling is replacing golf for middle-aged men, and that Bike Radar represents all of that bullshit.

    Planet x is best taken with pinch of salt. Alpina is Dolan only, but they do occasionally have sales. They're only £99 though anyway, aren't they? Are Planet X doing Stronglight 2000 cranks? Just ignore their 'RRP' prices and shop around a bit.

    I bought mine during the first run, I think; so quite a while ago.
    They are dead good if you can get your hands on them, it'll be a shame if they're not making them anymore. Possibly just not a big enough market to justify another run.

    Are they not making them anymore then? I have a mini, but can't bring myself to use it on the mean streets of York. Saving it for the dun run though, not selling!

    They did the stuff with "buy a frame and get a free carbon wheelset" but they bumped up all the frame prices beforehand. That was actually a pretty decent deal, but I didn't have £499 to splash out.
