    Though, Terpsta as mentioned as above did very little for the whole race in the way of attacking as opposed to Boonen and Cancellara, he just chugged along and had one big attack

    yes it does, so you list it on ebay for £530, they charge £2 listing, £528, then you sell it and get £528, you post it, then ebay take 10%(ish) of the final sale price out of your paypal account, you end up with about £475, hence it's cheaper to sell here.

    "No cross-posting adverts you've put on other sites. If you have an item for sale anywhere other than here, like ebay, bikeradar, ctc, retrobike, etc. then you cannot post it here. However, if you have posted it on one of those other sites, other people who have discovered it are allowed to post it in the eBay/Craigslist finds thread. You must not do this yourself."

    You also forget the £50 ebay will charge you once it's been sold, £475ish would be the equivalent price.

    @dan true, that final group was 10(?) really strong riders though, the fact that terpstra rode away from them all including Wiggins, shows that it wasn't just Wiggins who failed to follow him if you get my drift?

    @hippy true, not disputing that at all, i genuinely think he can do both hour and P-R too, would be good to see him to a proper classics campaign, do the hour record then a few prologues/week long tours in the rainbow stripes, then focus on track; it may be too much for one season though

    I'm fairly sure if you ask any of the pro peloton that have got neither, which they'd rather have paris-roubaix or the hour record, they'd all say paris-roubaix

    there's not enough continuation or attempts at the hour record to make it as prestigous

    Yeah, I remember Boonen saying he didn't think he had the legs for the sprint so told Terpstra to go, if Boonen is fucked at the end, chances are the rest of them are too

    well i didn't get any rocking and there wasn't any daylight between cleat and shoe? i had a-three's on speedplay zero's fyi

    aaaandd that's where the difference is :) just got my speedplay box out and checked the sheet and a-three's are glassfibre soles so do use the 1f+1r, but i presume your shoes are carbon sole and 2012 and earlier? and therefore use "*remove 1-f & 1-r snap shims. install 4-f and 4-r snap shims. May require "extra shim" under cleat-mounting screw of each baseplate"

    If they are 2013 and later though, they should be fine with just 1-f and 1-r according to speedplay.

    But, i have all the above in shims, just pm'd you

    @goonz let me check, I've got a fair few lying about, with my three hole bonts though all i needed was the adapter shim, i think that was the 1f 1r

    Call up, check stock, pay with paypal, the worst that can happen is you'll be delayed by a few weeks if they do you over, best = you get sweet frame

    Go to mielec and tell them to use good/light tubing?

    They make 29ers so strength and disc/canti mounts isn't a problem, and they're now able to use 1.5inch headtubes. Plus you can make custom geo, and it probably won't go north of £300
