    Just watched today’s highlights of the Olympics. The Brownlee’s old swimming coach was interviewed and is called Coz Tantrum.

    They are prone to rounding. Yes they’re the right ones, just make sure you get the right length, sometimes every bolt can be a different length so measure them all!

    Get something with speed control and preferably oscillatong blade (Bosch call it a pendulum action) The cut speed is a lot quicker. I have the Bosch 700 E but I’ve used the 800 and it is significantly better.

    What’s the bike and caliper? Sram calipers don’t have the biggest surface area and I have seen them slip on hollow carbon forks. Could possibly be helped by increasing the friction under the boot head and / or caliper depending on the setup?

    I'm riding Salsa Cowbells 42cm on my gravel bike. 40cm on road. I appreciate the 12deg flare on them and definitely notice the difference in control to the previous straight bars and the 40cm road bars. DEfinitely don't feel the need to go any wider on a gravel biek.

    Really happy for the Brits, excellent racing from them to stay out of the crashes. Shriever looked untouchable.

    Just caught up with the BMX coverage on GCN / Eurosport. Jesus wept Rochelle Gilmore and that Kiwi fella were terrible. I think they called names wrong more often than they got it right. He got most of the tech bits wrong, like confusing fixed gear and single speed :O

    The shimano one was very thin clear plastic, and only was needed on the first gen xtr cassettes. SRAM ones go between the 10-11-12 tooth cogs. 'Stealth rings' I believe they call them, no reason to be behind a cassette.
    I would agree with danb's assumption seeing as the wheels didn't come with a cassette mounted.

    I love their super long seatposts they chuck on to ride through the the pits back to the start. Looks like they're all on bromptons.
