Having always been riding the ruff stuff, what’s the ideal ride position on a road bike?
Q: I have a standard 9-speed Dura-Ace chainset (53-39) but would like to reduce my gearing. I've seen 50 (maybe even 49) tooth outer and 38 tooth inner chainrings advertised - will these work without difficulty or would I have to make other adjustments too?
Q: I commute three miles each way to work and back throughout the year. It is a constant battle to keep the exposed gear train clean and lubricated. Rim brakes gradually wear away the rim and generate a lot of dirt too.
For laid back riding with cutting edge bike design look no further than the latest creation from Mike Burrows which combines asymmetry and rhetoric like never before.
A classic-looking race shoe with just enough pearl white to avoid the 'cor, they look pimpy!' jibes. The blend of silver and matt black reinforcements breaks up bulk and gives a light and airy look to the shoe.
A high-end entry-level shoe for the keen racer who wants a simple and light shoe, the Altea II Plus is nevertheless very keenly priced with many features.
