    Thanks. Some nice bright colours in that range :(. May wait till ‘21 season.

    I bought the jersey for the Etap a few of years ago (2017). The label says super light weight jersey. What is the equivalent material and cut in the current range? Pro-team is just too close fitting.

    I've got DTS 240's on my Ti Kinesis, super smooth, DTS will be on my next wheelset too...

    When I picked them I loved the ease of servicing and the choice of end-caps to move between bolt thru and QR

    I think that's covered a recommendation for each of the options you put forward so good luck...

    I've found it worth having one of these, works on BB as well if it's press in

    Just checked my CdF headset. It came as standard with an FSA headset
    The upper bearing housing (closest to bars) is two part, one pressed into the head tube, then the bearing then the top cover.
    The lower bearing (closest to the wheel) is a one part and presses into the headtube. There does not seem to be anything below the bearing and there is no bearing showing.
    Could you have the cups the wrong way round?

    Put a jubilee clip round the tube and chuck it on the turbo?

    I think the privacy settings are pretty bug ridden. I have not changed from 'followers only' for as long as I can remember. I joined January Grand Fondo and got the badge, I have joined each Grand Fondo since then and have not got the badge despite completing the challenge.
    Last year as long as you did not have the ride set to 'private' then it counted towards the challenge (July Grand Fondo eligibility rules)).
    As an aside Strava still has not updated a personal goal to completed despite the fact I completed it and I've done all the reload stuff.

    I don’t actually mind them using my data provided it is fully anonymous. What I don’t want is for random people to click through the leaderboards to see my rides and the routes I take.
