    Giro highlights on Quest, Eurosport have live stages, £6.99 for a pass. Vuelta highlights on ITV4.

    Still looking good. But please use the extra bit of bar tape around the lever clamp, that sneaky bit of bar showing is playing havoc with my OCD ;)

    Looks like a Spesh Pizza Rack.

    Usually find TTs a bit boring, not anymore. That was very special.

    They are getting thin on the ground, All City don't do the Mr Pink anymore, Surly shelved the Pacer, Soma and Genesis are still offering non disc steel frames, if I was after one now, Genesis would probably get my money.
    Been looking at one of those tyre jack type fitting tools, but secretly hoping they give a little before I need to take em off again.

    Cheers. Put my Topeak Road Blaster pump back on, gonna sell the Silca (don't need both, and the Silca will go for more coin).
    The brakes are Tektro r539, will Koolstop pads, just change the pads, the brakes work fine, but stock pads are shit. But better brakes wise, you're looking at TRP or Velo Orange.

    Fitted new tyres today, was going for a ride, but can't feel my thumbs! Specialized Roubaix Pro 30/32mm tubeless, utter bastards to put on Mavic rims (but then most tyres are).
    The solution was to get to about the last 8-10 inches of bead left to go, cable tie the tyre to the rim either side, and gently persuade with a tyre lever, ensuring not to catch the rim tape with said lever (not that that happened twice, just a warning).

    From that performance I would suggest they already have it, and are awaiting tests tomorrow.
    Jumbo way too strong, unless PR falls off, this looks like a done deal.

    Wow, what a porker (in cycling terms - not meaning to be rude to anyone).
    Loved today's stage, Bora steaming Bennet out of it, Alaphilippe having a little go (just wish he had it in the tank to make one stick), Bernal had a little dart (that was never going anywhere), and Sunwebs general strategy overall just makes for fantastic racing/viewing.
