Dear 5/10, Specialized, RC etc. will you PLEASE make a flat shoe with Velcro or at least a combo of Velcro /laces? I know many have been asking for a while. Maybe there are few I am unaware of. If so, I am open to someone pointing them out. Like them or hate them,...more

Dawn dishwashing soap and water here. It's what rescuers use to clean wildlife after oil spills so it's got something good going on. Also works well to remove poison ivy/oak/sumac oils when you get home from a day of thrashing around in the brush.

Couple of tidbits from the latest Wyn TV; Atwill and Dak both looking for gigs next year. (Also is it just the camera angle/armor or does Bruni look massive next to Wyn?)

This might warrant a new thread but has anyone tried the Vorsprung Secus yet? I saw the Luftkappe mentioned upthread and I love mine but really intrigued by the Secus Upgeraditis is real folks, talk to your doctor about it.

Apologies if there's an existing thread, I wasn't able to find one. Impetus: as a new rider on the lighter end of the spectrum I wasn't able to find baseline settings that worked for me, hopefully this thread can provide some starting points for new

View this post on Instagram After 9 years racing for the UR Team I have decided to stop racing World Cups. It is not a decision I have taken lightly. Fabien took me on with no expectations and zero pressure. During my first year on the team I won the first round of the World Cup series in South Africa. At the 6th round I crashed hard and was seriously injured, I broke my femur, collarbone and had some internal injuries. Within the same 12 months I would go on to break my collarbone 2 more times. Ever since the moment I had a pro ride I have never wanted and never have given less than the best I possibly can. I have battled fear, injury, disappointment, insecurity, and failure to get up, keep going and be competitive for the podium. I am not in a place to give entirely everything in me to this level of racing anymore. It is an extremely high stress environment and I have high expectations and put pressure on myself at every single race to perform. To be one of the best in the world consistently takes meticulous weekly preparation that lasts over a span of sometimes, several off-seasons. My ultimate goal in racing was to win a World Cup Overall Championship, I have done this and it is something I will never forget. I would have loved to win an elite World Title, every World Champs I have raced I gave the most I could give on that day, in that run, for that moment. My World championship was Cairns 2017, even though I did my absolute best I didn’t take home the gold medal, but I felt the rainbow that day. It has been an amazing 9 years racing World Cups with the team, we have been through extreme highs and lows, injuries and strengths, great times and the worst times, we’ve shed many tears and much champagne. I am so thankful to Fabien for giving me a chance 9 years ago and never giving up when I went through the worst injury of my career, bad results and emotional lows, he is the hardest worker I have ever met and has been the best team manager I could have asked for. Thanks to all the staff past and present for making our dreams possible. 2021 marks my 10th year with the UR Team, were working on a new fun kind of schedule to showcase more riding. Thank you everyone ❤ //@ur_team A post shared by Tracey Hannah(@littletrace13) on Oct 22, 2020 at 7:27am PDT

Great question! (and I'm pretty sure I saw the same vid, maybe one of the recent WynTV episodes?)

I thought the same but then remembered that he left Lapierre to get out from under Bruni's shadow. If Minnaar hasn't made plans to retire I can see Vergier wanting to move somewhere he can be top dog.

Just found a slow cooker by the side of the road and picked up some paraffin, going to give that method a try!

Probably, but I can't stand it when my chain makes any noise so I'm gonna keep doing it
