    Currently take all my photos with a iPhone 6S+. Generally suits my needs, but would like something with a optical zoom lens that's nicer than just digitally zooming on the photo as below.

    This Canon Powershot SX420 seems cheap enough, but will the image quality be any better ?

    It's getting a bit depressing with riders being hit by cars TT'ing

    Evening 10 last night and came around a corner to find the rider in front lying on the ground after being hit by a car. Luckily (?!) it appeared concussion and a few broken bones rather than anything more serious

    Has anyone got a skinsuit with a NoPinz pocket ? Generally very happy with mine, knocked 15s off my 10 PB (previously wore bib shorts and jersey) while wearing it for the first time this week.

    However, it's a bit of a faff to get the number in the pocket. The number goes in from the inside, so you have to strip off to get the number in. Fine for somewhere with a HQ with toilets/changing rooms, but how do you manage when sign on is at the start of the race in a lay by ?

    Hate to be the pedant, but looks as though the saddle could do with tilting down, and the bars tilting up. Otherwise, looks amazeballs !

    Shorts- Meh, who started the trend for them being so long, it's horrible. I feel like a skater kid, and I'm 195cm, not exactly short

    It's the gripper swathe of doom at the bottom that ends up ripping holes in the shorts unless you roll it up when pulling the shorts up. Also, messes with my tan lines when swopping between them and pro team bibs

    Also agree on the material on the core jersey.

    It depends. I've got 9spd Chorus on one bike with the same style Ergo's as yours, and they're my favourite shifters. More so than the modern 11spd Chorus I have on another bike.
    However I appreciate a lower bottom gear than 9spd Chorus can manage

    'gramming, commuting etc, then build around those Ergo's. Otherwise, modern groupset

    Probably the other thing that was proved today (as if there's any doubt) is that Sunweb don't have a team to support Dumoulin.

    You can argue about the class of some riders pushing on when he was trying to get back on, but you're going to have a difficult time winning a GT when things go wrong if you don't have a team to support. Full marks to Tendam for giving it a go before he went bang though.
