NWR the Cycling Thread

Depends on the scheme. Some shops won’t accept it as they lose a chunk of margin on the sale. Halfords used to be able to order in anything they didn’t sell, I was looking at a Condor but ended up getting an Airnimal through them a few years back.
Decathlon Croydon have it listed. I've just bought a new Wiliers GTR Centaur under the "honest Mr Accountant I bought the bike for the business to deliver internet orders to the customers" scheme.:rolleyes:

What I meant was there are many cycle to work schemes, and some don’t allow you to spend outside their chain.

Prompt delivery of orders is vitally important, I’m sure the customers will appreciate personal Lycra clad service

Felt sorry for Annemiek today after what happened in Brazil, but it’s a fairy tail result for Austria. None of the Auz commentators could understand the NL tactics, but that was cleared up immediately they saw the reaction as Annemiek crossed the finish line.

Great for the Olympic that someone who is virtually classified as an amateur has won.
 
Same as you ... but 24 rather than 42...;)... although may stretch to 30 on the flat...
You are very fit!
Well I just bought a very fast bike - back in the tax free days!

A serious TT set up will give you 4-8kph over a very good position on a road bike, and the faster you are going the more true that is!

Some of the positions and cycling styles today were close to perfect.
 
I'm glad Birger is not into track cycling. Am sure he'd be appauled at how easily Charlie Tanfield went down today under the lightest of contact from Frederik Madsen... ;)

Jesting aside there is a serious point that the collision, entirely Madsen's fault, denied a well beaten GB squad the chance of fighting for bronze.

Also UCI commisaires a bit inconsistent in their application of the rules compared to previous world cup events.

Ho hum.
