    Dimension Data have announced their M-SR squad and there is no Cav.

    Fingers crossed he comes back but Paris-Nice and now this it looks bad, the mononucleosis has done him.

    Well I don't know about you but I try my hardest, and have done beach cleans as well. Walking along a beautiful beach like Rhossili Bay and seeing it covered it in plastics and rubbish of every description is heartbreaking, soul-destroying stuff, it makes you despair.

    Inrng's take on it:

    I am not sure saying it is a shitty sponsor but then there are a lot of shitty sponsors in cycling quite works. The irony of the team launch at the Tour of Yorkshire when INEOS wants to frack the flipping moors is delicious, not sure they will get the reaction they are looking for.

    What happened to all the guff about plastic in the oceans and orcas on the jersey?

    Weird: I live in Gloucestershire and I feel like the only fixed gear rider here. There are a few still in Bristol.

    Might send that to Surly. They call it trackish, I think a lot of ppl build them as bruisers. You want a track bike you buy a track bike, you want a Steamroller you buy a..

    I have no plans beyond trying to preserve the geo of my Steamroller and get a disc brake on it some how

    Yeah that is why I am loathe to swap in my Straggler fork. I will enquire.

    One of the Polish builders does disc forks for track bikes for about £100 I remember, I forget which one atm. I would certainly be up for getting one. Argos is my local builder here in Bristol, I might cycle up to see him and get a quote. I got a feeling it will be significantly more expensive though.
