I just looked on 3T's website. I couldn't believe how many models they are doing now. It used to be 4 max, now they've got about 10!

It can be a mind fuck choosing when you add in aesthetics, position, sizing etc. Took me a while to bite the bullet and settle on ergonovas for about £180 from Tweeks cycles.

leaders are shit, can get way better frames for the money. and brick lane are shit as well, are you thinking of 14bikeco, talbot, oak cycles?

Not trolling, a friend of mine had a track frame without a paint job in 08/09 was a really nice ride

Using this for everything at the moment, took this frame for a tour round the Netherlands last year too. Rides like Aladdin's carpet.

The new WIGGINS kit looks cool, Im a sucker for Rapha. I don't really cycle much due to a dodgy knee but enjoy them on Instagram. Also, why is Wiggins team always capitalised?

It's a specialized Romin pro. Super comfy and it's something like 167g.

Pm me if you want one , can get you a good discount.

so nice to have a groupset that actually works smoothly.

went and did 50 miles on sunday, was probably the hardest ride ive ever done. Felt so unfit.

hah, its the most comfortable its ever been.

On a flat saddle I always slide forwards onto the narrow part (numbness ensues). Tilted back and drop the saddle a touch and I am sat on the back of the saddle and dont slide forwar.

You have a nice bike but everything in this ^^^ pic is just horrible.

I'm having trouble looking at it
