Hey everyone! I am thinking about getting myself a downhill bike. I live in a pretty big city so the main use of the bike will be getting around. I’d like to do some urban riding too(riding down/up stairs etc.). Is downhill good for those cases? Also I will be using the bike in the Forest and similar for mountain biking. Would you recommend me a downhill bike? If so how do I find the right one? Kind regards!
Hi Folks, I have recently started cycling and I'm struggling to find cycling gear for men's XS so I have been using my running gear instead. Is the sizing different for cycling gear ? Could anyone recommend any online websites or shops to were I could find cycling gear in Ireland/UK. Thanks
I'm looking into doing my first couple of sportives next year, probably going to start with a few 35-40 mile routes to see how I get on before ultimately doing some 70-80 mile routes & finally doing some 100 mile routes.
How fit do I need to be/how much training should I be doing? I'm in my late 20s and I cycle to work every day on a Cube Nuroad Pro with full mudguards & rack (8 mile round trip, one short but very steep climb) so I consider myself to be relatively fit but I've never done longer leisure/sportive type routes so it's uncharted territory for me.
I currently have a pretty basic road bike with a decent groupset on it (Pinnacle Laterite 3 with a 105). Would this be sufficient for some longer rides or should I be looking at getting something a bit more capable? If so, does anyone have any suggestions? I'm UK based if that makes a difference.
So I'm eying a new aero bike atm and sort of nailed down to these to models (neon yellow seems to be my thing). Basically i narrowed down my criteria to be disc, ultegra mechanical. Going around the $3k-$4+ bracket.
For stock setup it seems like the bontrager comp 5 seems a better offering comparte to the DTSwiss P1800.
Apart from the value for money, i'll probably look to be with the bike for the long haul, it seems like the isospeed on madone could deliver as it claims, is this a better option than the S3?
Madone SL seems to be a watered down of the SLR due to the difference in carbon material by 100grams ish.
For those with the S3, how does it fair as an overall bike experience?
