    Same difference, trail will drop from 62 to 55. Still within a sensible range. I’d be surprised if you don’t notice a little difference in steering but it won’t be life changing.

    I don’t know what size you have but if we take the medium with a 74.5° headtube, with the stock fork with 28mm rake you have a trail of roughly 65 which is quite high. If you swap to a 35 rake, your trail will go down to 58. Most road bikes are between 50 and 60 so I’m sure it’ll feel just fine. Slightly less toe overlap too.

    I don’t think there is anything. Not that I’m aware of anyway.
    A more conventional 35 rake will reduce trail and quicken the steering a little but probably not enough to worry about. It will however, give you plenty more choices of fork....

    Part of the remit was that they wanted it to use the same clamp as the existing posts.
    In situ; with clamp, it’s one fugly monstrosity! Make the current cranked design look relatively svelte...

    I have the exact same (unused) columbus fork and a spare front wheel. I also live by this guy but decided to pass. Knowing my luck, the frame is just waiting for the first person to ride it again before catastrophically failing right between the head and down tubes!

    As well as being an extremely good movie, the 'textual epilogue' really puts things in perspective.

    Yup. Which has seriously curbed my Wiggle buying! I'm now having to think very seriously as to whether I can be arsed with the hassle or expense of returning stuff before I make a purchase.
    Used to be, buy whatever you want; anything you don't keep - stick on a royal mail label (for free) and drop it off at the PO on my route home.
    Now it's a whole different kettle of fish. If I go to Asda, firstly there's a good chance that shoes, helmets, wheels anything large definitely isn't going to fit in the designated 'returns bin'. Secondly, you have to press a couple of buttons on a touch screen and 'wait' for a member of staff to come and print you a label.
    The one time I tried this I looked at the bin and thought, 'this box aint fitting in there!' and then after standing around like a goon for ten minutes just fucked off and went home and paid for a royal mail label.
    Obviously the higher ups at Wiggle who struck this fantastic deal with Asda have likely never actually been to an Asda......

    I’m after a solution to mount a bike vertically on a side wall. Short of just using a couple of pegs, does anyone have any suggestions or do this already?

    Correct. Omniums have very 'thick' spiders so you won't get enough thread engagement using standard single chainring bolts. I've also 'heard' that doubles will do the job but never tried it and don't use omniums any more.
