    Sorry the clearance issues was between the front wheel and the down tube.. No matter what i tried i couldn't get the sks raceblade pros to fit. Its a new bike that came with budget wheels and conti 25mm tyres these will be changed before its ridden but i suspect any replacements will be equally...

    Ok ordered the SkS longs. I have a feeling they may foul at the same point or they may just work. The wiggle own brand clip on's may also be worth a try.

    A bit of an update. I went to my local dealer who initially wanted £99 to diagnose the windscreen fault... Yes £99 to confirm that it had a massive crack on it! after speaking with the dealer manager they backed down on this. They have agreed that the crack is not a stone chip and are going to...

    Cupra 300 - Quality issues

    If i remember i will post a picture of the door seal. I would strongly suggest people properly test drive these before ordering to allow them to properly make there mind up on weather they can live with the quality issues on the car. I didn't expect such a huge drop from the SciroccoR but it...

    Cupra 300 - Quality issues

    I took delivery of a new seat cupra last week which replaced my Scirocco R. I speced the car with DSG and Seat Sound. From the very start there is some real quality issues. Driver door seal doesn't fit so you get mega wind noise in the cabin this apparently takes two days to fix and two further...

    I currently ride a 2014 Supersix Evo HiMod with Sram Red. I bought this bike last year as it was going "cheap" as it was an old model but one of the downsides are its rear stays are narrow and as such a Gp4000 SII 25mm tyre just fits with careful fitment. My question is if i was to go for a...

    Bibshort lifespan

    From doing a 9 day LeJog my conclusion was they don't last as long as you would think. What i mean is they don't perform at 100% as long as you would think. The Shorts I bought that season where far more comfortable than the ones I had that where one season old all Identical Sportful Total...

    Type R and VTEC owners

    Was in the Honda dealers yesterday getting a tyre fitted to my scirocco R. Sat in a type R civic, quickly realised i couldn't live with that car. Very basic interior not moved on in the last 5 years or so. On the plus side, loved the seats.

    Insurance companies are bonkers

    From my uni days the following sticks in my mind when it comes to insurance http://www.brodies.com/node/1635 In simple terms lying on an insurance policy is bad. Failing to disclose something that one could reasonably be expected to disclose is also bad weather they ask you or not.

    Highly unlikely unless your a world class track cyclist. In dry weather use i would expect 4kor 5k miles from the chain possibly more if its looked after.

    Cleaning the chain - best practices?

    Parktool cleaner filled with Paraffin (£1.73 Per Litre) Spin Round a few times and then dry off with cotton rag. I then apply oil chain oil later that day and let soak overnight before removing excess.
