    Hmm. Not much between them, but the condor wheels cost about £140 RRP and the Moda wheels cost ~£400. Think I'd be tempted to try out the Moda out of the two. Might be worth asking around to see who owns one for more info. IIRC it's @youramericanlover and @finger_jockey Who ride them.

    I don't think I can compare the two. I've had a short spin on a Moda and it was nice and the standard components are ideal if you don't want to do any upgrading yourself. I haven't ridden a Lavoro though, so it wouldn't be right for me to sway you.

    What components do the condors come with? Is it their rebranded miche stuff?

    I think Evans used to, but replaced Moda with their Hoy range. They still have this online

    I think Cycle PS have ordered Moda for C2W schemes for a forumenger too.

    If you're going down the cycle to work scheme path. Then try and get something like a moda forte. They're good OTP frames with good components. The American Classic wheels are great.

    i don't think my email was particularly angry. I mentioned that I was disappointed not to be involved with the sprint events, and that these were the races I was really looking forward to.

    I respect their decision, but feel that some of the communication could be better.

    @imagesurgery I don't feel that strong this week anyway. Got a nasty chest infection (again).

    Good luck to everyone racing tonight.

    They've refunded me because they won't let me race in the sprint events. I didn't ask for a refund initially, just why I wasn't considered and if there was an opportunity to change their minds.

    The only response was a refund and my withdrawal from Monday's event. Not exactly what I had in mind with my initial email to them.

    I've also asked if there was any chance of being considered for sprinting events in future special events nights, but no answer to this yet.

    They let you in the sprints?

    You missed a Bryson screamer. Would've smacked me in the face if the net didn't catch it!

    Do they have sofas in the away end at Vicarage road? Sounds comfy.

    @Ramsaye you going today?

    Same here mate. I'm not sure I see the point of offering the bunch races on these "special events" nights. Would've rather had had had an extra novice category for the sprint events.

    Maybe in the future events...

    Unfortunately, as they probably knew there would be some upset riders, they've decided not to answer any emails about it either.
