    Hhhmmm. Not sure about that. Bottom-feeding scumweasels the Murdochs may be, but I'm not sure they've ever been personally responsible for widespread human rights violations.

    Team UAE's Human Resources not up to much then? Shame.

    Same here.

    Indeed - unless they've compensated for less-than-good consolidation with plenty of material. And of course waffer-thin alloy bars will also be very flexy. Material not being the only consideration, which was sort of the point.

    They don't exist. Aluminium bars will always be stiffer.

    Young's modulus of T700 carbon fibre, 230GPa. Young's modulus of 7005 T6 aluminium, 70GPa. Please show your working.

    Funnily enough, no. Stopped for lunch in Blonduos, but deffers no cliff diving. Didn't finish at nearly 600m asl at the end of the day either, as I distinctly remember a long fast downhill into Varmahalid.

    Well, that's my conclusion. Here's the elevation data from my Elemnt, Strava's corrected elevation, and @Cycliste's Lezyne GPS unit. Spot the odd one out.

    But at the moment, Wahoo are still saying that the Elemnt is A OK and absolutely fine.

    Could be a fundamental sensor limitation, but it used to be very accurate, and I really can't imagine that any commercially-available sensor would be so awful that it couldn't distinguish between 80ft above sea level (which is where we were at) and 2600ft above sea level (which is where the Elemnt was insisting we were at).

    I have. I prefer the Shadow because for me the fit is better. It's thinner material, and so might not be as warm as the Gabba, but it's more waterproof. I wore mine (with Shadow bibs, arm warmers, knee warmers and a Pro Team Gilet) on this year's Tour Transalp, and on the stage up the Umbrail pass which they cancelled due to bad weather I was left wondering what the problem was, while other people seemed to be in the advanced stages of hypothermia (albeit none that I could see wearing Gabbas). I like the Shadow gear. In fact, I've just bought another set of bibs and jersey. #csb

    I have. They still say the altitude readings are 'within spec'. So apparently total bollocks is fine as far as Wahoo are concerned.
