    pot/pan recommendations?

    Thinking about stainless steel with a copper core atm. Any brands I should be looking at? Durability top of the list. For an induction hob.

    looking for a super short stem with huge positive rise and very swept back bars for my wife's pinnacle lithium. She's getting pretty pregnant and needs to make her bike much more upright

    any recommendations?

    I've got one on my rear wheel to replace a G one speed that had worn through.

    Only ridden it once so far, but seemed pretty good. Was the easiest tubeless set up I've ever done, too - popped on no problem and sealed without any sealant in.

    I'm coming to realise that my exped synmat isn't working for me. I'm heavy and I like to side sleep and I just don't there is enough air volume in it to make this comfy.

    @hippy yeah spd

    @skinny - they are pretty heavy and imo not that great for road riding because they aren't stiff soled. Prob fine for mtb but when I ride off-road there is usually an element of road riding involved too.

    Comfy shoes though and good to walk in for sure.

    new rapha explore shoes are pretty good - stiff where it matters (pedal plate bit) and flexible for walking.

    weird - i've had praxis BB on two bikes and they've worked flawlessly for a combined ~20,000km in some shite weather

    basically, the wetter it is, the worse it gets once the rain eases off. Heavy rain keeps them away (sort of) but then its doubly worse when it gets lighter or stops.

    i met liam glen (current course leader) briefly at TCRno5. Seemed a really nice chap - wonder if he can hold this lead against the pack?
