    i like that position but it isn't ideal if you live in the UK and want to ride in Europe/US (basically anywhere else)

    No worries - glad you're getting some use out of it. I would recommend trying to make sure the bracket fits as neatly to the fork crown as possible to ensure you don't have clearance issues. I've got a fork with huge clearance but I can see how might be an issue for others.

    @youramericanlover i'd reiterate my advice about applying the di2 guides. Thoroughly clean and dry your frame first then use a hairdryer on the frame to heat it up when you apply the sticky part.

    i'll soon be selling a mixed shimano 10 speed groupset

    5700 cassette and chain (lightly used)
    6700 brakes
    7900 FD
    6700 RD
    6700 shifters (scuffed)
    Quite scuffed FSA chainset (52/36)

    Was thinking about £145 ish - does that sound reasonable?

    Plenty of clearance between frame pump and cabling.

    no internal routing but this by @M_V is how my rear is mounted. Tidy.

    I run a rear cabled light using di2 cable routing under a frame pump. It is fine so long as the contact points of the pump (at either end) don't mess with the cabling. Can post a picture later if you want.

    The logos have discoloured a touch - wouldn't say they are bright white anymore, more of a cream. No cracking though. Stitching is fine too - worth keeping the repair policy in mind. They'll repair your shorts for free if the stitching does break down.

    I took two pairs on the TCR and wore them for a few big long training rides running up to it. Would recommend. Prefer the fit over the Brevet range - the straps on the PT range are a bit more elastic than the Brevet ones, which suits my body length better.

    Echo @andyp's statement about the merino baselayers - I have a few in long and shortsleeve variants and they get a lot of use. As long you wash em at a low temperature and avoid mixing them with Velcro bits in the wash, they'll last really well.

    fair enough - can only speak to the quality of the stuff I've worn.
