    M739 vees with the little shim pack (to stop them squealing) Don't think there are any pads though. In very good condition. Don't have any pics just now. Gimme a couple o' days and I'll sort some out. Got brifters too.

    Sadly, that is the case. Reminds me of the old Star Series races Eurosport used to show
    But, the racing is only ever going to improve if you encourage more wimmin into the sport and I just don't see coverage like this being the way to do it
    I put the ttt on th'other day, and they seemed more interested in showing what the tv director was doing in his (of couse) booth. They didn't even show the winning team.
    And yesterday's itt was the ideal opportunity to show more of the lesser lights, as it were. I gave up, with no intermediate split and no timing board at thd finish, it was nigh-on impossible to tell what was going on

    Is anybody else finding the coverage of the Giro donne, frankly, insulting? Merely an hour programme and they spend most of it looking at a bunch of nonentities milling around the finish line, or long lingering shots of the scenery. I know that's the fault of the television director, but surely Eurosport could have a word? It's really not a good advert for women's cycling
    The race organisers are a shower of shite too. They couldn't even put up a timing board at the finish of today's tt stage

    He's still infinitely preferable to John Inverdale. Luckily he doesn't commentate on t'cycling. Then you'd know what shite commentary is

    I thought as much, sadly

    Anyone know if I can fit 28s in a 566 or a 555 frame?
