    Ack. He rode past my house 4 times in 2 days last week. If I'd been paying more attention I'd have ridden out to say hello for a bit.

    I think I'm going to make the transition from trail shoes to spikes for cross country this year, but I've never run in spikes before.

    Is there anything I should be aware of, or think about when choosing? Are there any rules of thumb about the number of spikes, the length of spikes etc that I should think about?

    EDIT: I should probably add that I currently run cross country in a pair of inov-8 xtalon 190.

    No I've not drilled mine but I really should.

    I didn't because (a) I'm scared and (b) it would invalidate the warranty.

    The warranty isn't an issue for you because it's second hand, and although it's a lifetime warranty I bought mine in the US over 5 years ago and have no idea where the receipt is so it probably isn't realistic for me either.

    Pretty sure that both @skinny and @danstuff have done some drilling on Cervelo frames though.

    What I really want is an e-tap RD so I don't have to worry about cabling at all, but tap isn't available as separate components to my knowledge, and I'd probably have to wait for a second hand one anyway.

    Just found the thread... Did you go tubeless in the end or tubed? I think someone on the tubeless thread found that their BJP tyres had leaky sidewalls.

    Are there any recommendations for reasonably priced jewelers screwdriver sets and springbar tools? I just want something for bracelet resizing and changing straps... I've seen loads of options for pittance on amazon and ebay, are they the best bet or will they break instantly or need lots of filing to fit?
