    The Indoor Riding/ Zwift/ TrainerRoad etc. Thread

    Have you checked the DC Rainmaker buyer's guide? The high-end group is the Neo, Kickr and the Saris H3. The DCR site has full reviews of each as well. https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2020/11/smart-cycle-trainer-recommendations-guide-winter.html/ I've had a Saris H3 since last November and I'm...

    The Indoor Riding/ Zwift/ TrainerRoad etc. Thread

    I did the 8am ToW ride on Sunday which was (only) my fourth time up the Alpe, so quite lucky to get the fancy-pants wheels. Ducked inside an hour for the first time (58:55), so need to decide on a new target. Might aim for under 55 minutes...

    The Indoor Riding/ Zwift/ TrainerRoad etc. Thread

    I "won" the bling-bling Lightweight wheels at the top of the Alpe on Sunday morning :cool: I also got the new Zwift home screen update which is a big improvement as you can now get into your garage without needing to be riding: https://zwiftinsider.com/sneak-peek-homescreen/

    Fire Thread! - Stoves, Wood, Axes, Chainsaws

    I've got an empty store to fill - where you are buying unseasoned from DXP? LogALog (Newport) are quoting £155 for 2 cubic metres on their website. I'd be quite happy to cut and split some bigger trunks/logs but finding somebody to deliver them is the problem.

    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    I'm wondering if the Ukrainian plan was to let the Russians cross the border, then make life difficult. The Russians have an obvious superiority in armour, artillery, aircraft etc, so trying to fight them where those overwhelming forces can be brought into play isn't a good plan (to say the...

    SharePoint - Mapped Drives Alternative

    Works well for me - I've got a couple of folders from our company SharePoint syncing which total 75GB but use less than 100MB on my laptop.

    This is getting ridiculous (energy prices)

    I ordered 1000l of heating oil on Saturday - I'd been hoping things would calm down over in Ukraine but decided on Saturday it wasn't getting better, so got my order in before prices went up further (which seems like a decent call now). I only have six years of price data as that's when we...

    Road Cycling

    I didn't think of that - still, I took the chance to give the cassette a good scrub so that's all shiny again. I also finally changed the front tyre. I think I posted an image before about how I was getting strange "growths" on the tyre after plugging a puncture which the sealant couldn't...

    Road Cycling

    I spent a couple of hours yesterday sorting the best bike ready for some better weather. Started by servicing the freehub - really impressed with how simple DT Swiss (350) made it. Once the cassette is off, it just pulls apart with your fingers. There's two springs, a spacer, an end cap and...

    Road Cycling

    It is easy to get sucked into all the sports nutrition. I do use gels but I only buy them on offer and they keep for ages (it's not like some of them could taste worse when they get out of date). Last year I got some Powerbar gels from CRC for £6.72 per box of 24. OTE Anytime bars are...

    The Indoor Riding/ Zwift/ TrainerRoad etc. Thread

    A Kickr Snap is sub £400 IIRC as a wheel-on smart trainer option. https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2017/07/wahoo-kickr-snap-2017-v2-trainer.html Might be worth seeing if this Suito is indeed in stock? £399 and then needs a cassette...

    I had a look at the Strava segment for Volcano KOM this morning - now there's a pointless thing. Fastest time :cry: https://www.strava.com/activities/6489792962/analysis/1063/1355 Strava should just bin off all the virtual segments.

    The Indoor Riding/ Zwift/ TrainerRoad etc. Thread

    So where's a good place to start as a noob to Zwift racing? I've been enjoying the change from Sufferfest/Systm since getting my H3 and using the 30 day free trial (on top of the Zwift 7 day trail). Is it just pick a race and get your legs ripped off?

    Road Cycling

    I wouldn't worry about a carbon frame on a turbo. I just had a look on VeloViewer and my Planet-X SL (carbon frame & forks) has done 462 hours on the turbo (claimed to be 12,000km). Total riding on that frame (since I started using Strava) is 812 hours and 20,500km.

    The Indoor Riding/ Zwift/ TrainerRoad etc. Thread

    If you ever ride with me, that strange, annoying squeak isn't from a cleat or saddle rail, it's my wallet! :D Problem solved though - when I swapped my Assioma PM pedals off the turbo bike, I forgot to put the magnetic for my existing Garmin chainstay cadence sensor back on the crank arm :rolleyes:

    My existing Montane jacket is eVent and that's seven years old now. I think my previous Montane jacket was also eVent and that is still going as a emergency coat in the car boot. That said, I have noticed few, if any, of the major brands use it anymore, though I did wonder if that's because...
