Wait for the Lefty Oliver Carbon

You also need to think about the axle size- most MTB forks are 15mm x 110mm thru axle, most gravel bikes are 12mm x 100mm.

Re: Where to get Repairs During Covid

Depends on what you mean doesn't fit: 1) It has the wrong freehub body- ie you have a Shimano cassette but an SRAM XD freehub. That needs either a new free hub or new cassette. Free hub is specific for the hub you have. 2) The cassette goes on, but it is loose. This means all the splines match up, b...

I'll try another Zwift ride. I have followed you and will look for an invitation. Though if no-one else is going to join, don't get up early on my account.

Re: Distancing when exercising (it's more than two metres)

That is if you don't sneeze or cough. According to recent research done at MIT, your cough will transmit droplets ~6m while your sneeze ~8m. If you want to buy one of these cameras to do your own research on snot rocket generated turbulent gas clouds while travelling at 30km/h, I can hook you up. It...

Re: Fairfield Starbucks

For the 5 times a year I do the Sunday ride, I don't really care but wanted to point out a couple of things if you've never been to the marina cafe. Access to the cafe is via wooden stairs, concrete stairs or a concrete ramp. All you slippery plastic cleat wearing folk may have a tough time navigati...

Re: Victoria ranked most bike-friendly city in Canada

Interesting, that's what they do in the Netherlands on back country roads. Richardson is BUSY and not the kind of street it would work on. Feedback sent.

Re: Oct 27 - Canada Cup Trail

I might join you but have to be home by 10. I took a look and 48km- Ron did it 2:25, so doable as long as we don't dawdle.

Re: Air compressor for bike tires?

There is always a sale on at Canadian Tire. The larger the capacity, the more tires you can do without the pump turning back on in the midst of trying to seat your tubeless tires. I have a one gallon compressor, which sometimes I find limiting. There is also often on sale a schrader + presta inflato...

Re: Eco Underground parking for bikes

How does it handle unicycles?

Looks cool, but suspect there might be some local engineering hurdles. Doesn't look like they have built many (1/2 dozen?), but bleeding edge hasn't stopped the City of Victoria before. Is the lack of secure covered parking keeping people off their bikes?

Slow down out there on the Goose. This past Sunday, my wife and 4 friends were riding on the Goose and were passed by the TS Sunday ride.

Re: What the future gravel bike looks like?

Add the lefty from the Slate- unfortunately they don't sell that alone.
Wonder what it would be like on a cross course?
