Yeah, that's what I thought too, but I've had more than one w@nker try to tell me I shouldn't be on the road because my bike isn't "roadworthy" without indicators, brake lights etc, so it might shut up a few people.

Could also be handy when commuting in the dark though, might stop people trying to around someone getting ready to make a right hand (left hand in North America/Europe) turn.

    I doubt it would be very useful, but I suppose it would perhaps aid road rage.

    Words up to five letters only, so no 'w*****', but I suppose you could have 'c***', or 'c****s' if there are passengers in the car

    I don't know about Australia, but in Denmark the rider going left would have to ride on the extreme right, then first cross straight, and then take to the space in front of the pedestrian crossing to cross when it clears to go straight again.

    And that is a rule that took me some getting used to. From Germany, I was used to just using the car lanes when turning left - and I still do it in rural areas. It's out of the question in Copenhagen of course.

    Have to say going left in car lanes seems like a huge hazard, imagine coming down H.C. Andersen's Boulevard and having to go left on Stormgade, one would have to cross 3 lanes of traffic to get to the left lane, and then manage to cross another 3 to make it across, did that work in Germany at all?

    You have to remember that I grew up in a relatively small town. The widest road we have is three lanes (in all directions). It would be far too dangerous in a big city, be it Hamburg, Berlin or Copenhagen - but I don't see why it shouldn't be allowed in, say, Helsingør or Svendborg.
    Also, the difference between Germany and Denmark is that in Germany bikes sometimes don't have separate bike paths (as opposed to Denmark, where they are literally everywhere) and (have to) use the road on par with cars. And then you're normally treated as if you were a (small, and slow) car.

    Honestly at all non traffic light crossings it is pretty much de facto the rule.

    Very interesting looking and unique new saddle design. I'd be interested in trying one of these out to see how they feel.

    Well, I am sad to see this day arrive:



    http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/new-campagnolo-mechanical-groups-first-look

    From the company that brought us the Delta brake and the earliest edition of Ergopower levers that looked like they had been fashioned by the Greek gods, Campagnolo's chainsets have always, always been things of beauty. Aesthetically perfect, in contrast with Shimano and all the other also-rans except perhaps the very last of the Sachs-Huret gruppos in the early 90s.

    RIP...



    Let us hope it is just a fad.

    UCI ruling in 1.. 2..

    Srsly though, I'm all for proper industrial design processes but I hope they paid Evans handsomely.

    Because as you can see with those silly blades needed at the bottom of the bars "for extra stiffness", the practical result is ridiculous.

    Interesting article.

    A 1x11 gear setup seems to have merits if the terrain isn't too varied - crits, flat races with next to no hills etc.

    But I think it won't become widespread, for one reason: Pros won't ride it.
    And the average race bike buyer won't want things that pros don't ride: Triple chainrings are almost anathema, compacts are only slowly getting accepted (but still eyed warily), and everybody wants a 53x11 on their bike - because 'the pros have it'. A thorough analysis of time spent in various gears would be interesting, and probably surprise a lot of people.

    The purchase of a race bike often has little to do with reason. That's not necessarily bad; we need some things in life that aren't economised through-and-through.


    Disclaimer: I run a 52-40-30 triple[1] with a ten-speed 12-25 cassette on my bike.

    I might be imagining this but I think Tony Martin used a 1x11 setup in the Worlds TT a couple of years ago.

    He had something like a 56 at the front with an 11-32 cassette at the back.

    I think a lot of awnsers could be coming from Rohloff's type of back wheel hub :

    «The diagram below shows a comparison between a 27-speed derailleur gear system and the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14. There is no difference between the range of gears and the range of effective gears. Next to this is the optimum, evenly increased speeds of the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14. Impossible for the derailleur gear system is the shifting speed and the possibility of shifting through all gears with just one shifter whilst stationary or whilst pedaling. Just like the derailleur system, the range of gears can be taylored to the riders individual wishes whether that be for a faster or a slower riding style.»

    TT bikes don't really count ... single chain rings have been around on TT bikes since before there were (truly specialised) TT bikes ...

    Case in point is this beautiful replica of a 1970's TT special:
