  • Indeed, if you have efficient pedalling technique lockout isn't necessary.

    I'm confident that with the 30T chainring (although I'm tempted to swap it for a 32T) that I could pedal up all but the steepest trails without getting out of the saddle and engaging stomp mode.

        I wouldn't say I have got an efficient technique, flats too, so no upward pull of clipins, but most modern bikes i've tried have no bob.

          • It's a tool for a job, you know it makes sense!

            Fitness here I come! (note the lovely beer in the bottle cage)

            Got one of These with my 10% accessory allowance too

            • If it gets you doing more miles, more climbing, more outings, and enjoying the grade A tarmac, then yeah it makes sense I guess!

              I need a pic of new bike on top O big hill opening that beer!

              • That beer was gone within 20 mins of the phot

                The plan is it'll get me out when i haven't the time or motivation for a 'proper' ride. It'll hopefully not see too much road use either, just cyclepath bashing and local pub tours.

                I must confess, it felt bloody alien sitting on it, and I'm not convinced I'll like it. But it's a new bike lol.

                There'll be pics aplenty too, perhaps

                • Road/cross are truly awful on the comfort, seating position, even worse once you start peddling Think its definitely an acquired taste of bike fit, and will take some forced outings to get used to it, after being spoilt on the luxury armchair geo of the boardie.

                            • More road bikes. Coiler what have you done to this thread.

                              It's been a while since the bike has had a full service and lube up so have the weekend off plan on stripping her down and re greasing and aligning everything at some point today.
                              My RIG: MSI GE62 2QD Apache I7 4720HQ, 8GB DDR3, 128GB SDD + 1TB HDD, GTX 960M 2GB, Windows 10, 15.6" IPS screen.

                                Well this is more a CX bike which can go down canal tow paths/grit etc, pretty much how I built the Swchinn Moab up at one point, albeit that was a MTB at heart, it was a truly hateful thing to ride and went in the tip

                                JTDs going to be spoilt today sat back on the full plusher.


                                Got some warez arriving from CRC this weekend, new pads, going back to scintered, organics wore down much too quick and are noisy too, plus some VPP alternative lube, as SC have now stopped selling lube separately, along with some other sundries arriving
