It means you don't need volume spacers inside the forks in order to increase the progression / support (the spacers reduce the amount of air in the chamber so it needs more force to compress and stops is bottoming out as easily) and can adjust the sensitivity on the trail rather than having to take the fork apart.

    The cheaper Ravens (which the Planet X bike has) doesn't have the fancy Ramp Control system settling for using volume spacers to achieve a similar effect.

    In short the fork reviewed by Bikeradar is significantly different to the one on the Scandal so I wouldn't necessarily base your decision on that. That said, I've never ridden them but there are more favourable reviews of the Ravens out there. My guess is that Planet X have landed a job lot of MRP forks at cost so that's why they're speccing them - doesn't make them a bad fork but at full retail they don't look like best vfm.
    Just for closure I had the bike delivered last week and the mrp forks are completely fine. Itís been a while since I had a really good air shock, but these with their negative and positive air chambers seem so much better than the Fox forks on my old Stumpy FSR Elite (blast from the past). I can only concur that the variable ramp cartridge in the Ribbon forks must be the culprit of the poor reviews as these Ravens without it are better than fine for me.

    Iíve enjoyed the process of setting up and tweaking and can actually feel the difference immediately. Canít go wrong for the money.

    I do love the IOW and tend to go at least once a year. Crazy drivers aside, I think UK is just a great place to ride a bike.

    I rode that road in the pic on a 2 speed brompton as well as some of the Ďchinesí but there was a bit of road somewhere between Whitewell and Shorewell that was just sublime, sinuous, rolling up and down, new tarmac and great views, look forward to riding that on a proper bike at some point.

    Took my chance to get out today. This cafť a little further along from the top of Box Hill doesn't have the view, but it is on the way home and quieter. And they sell nice bikes.

    I'm up in my home town of Hartlepool for a few days, and I decided to have a run along Seaton Carew and Seal Sands. As you can see some of the views are markedly different from those you'd find on the Isle of Wight. Teesside does have some beautiful scenery actually, but it has some stark industrial landscapes as well.

    Twenty years ago I used to compete in the Morey's 3 day time trial stage race on the island. We used to hire a minibus & make a weekend of it. First stage was a hillclimb, then a 25 mile hilly, finally a round the island TT. On that one I recall the rhythmic sound of hitting the expansion strips on the military road & the climb of Blackgang Chine at the end of it. Good memories.

    New Canyon Road bikes announced this morning and stock has already run out on certain sizes. So, impulse purchase I've ordered the following in stealth grey, annoyed as wanted the old model colour scheme of stealth black but not going to complain. First venture into disc brakes on a road bike and di2 so looking forward to that.

    Felt like it was safe to shove me nice wheels on with the weather being so dry these last few weeks.



    A lot of this bike dates from a few years ago and I see no reason to change anything. The frame fits beautifully and Chorus 11 speed from 2012 still shifts like a dream. IMO one of the best looking groupsets that Campagnolo have ever released.

    Interesting review. I don't own a Canyon but if and when the day comes when I replace my Dolan I will definitely be looking at them (and Dolan for that matter, I really like mine).

    The valve stems and tyre logoís both at 6:30 was that a coincidence, or serious attention to detail? Lovely bike , not heard of that that frame before. Then again hardly anyone has heard of mine either.

    Haha no, not on this occasion...though I have been known. Filament is a UK CF frame builder, a one-man show. The owner, Richard, makes tandem frames for the Worlds and Olympics alongside regular ones like mine.

    I followed the link earlier, they certainly make some nice stuff. Also having a background in supplying Carbon and pre preg I find it nice to see the Artisan high quality specialist out there doing what they do best.

    Local lady Rachel Elliot races TTs on a Filament tandem. She's an ex national champion who lost her sight following a stroke and is now breaking records on her tandem.

    Some might recall the demise of my 17-year old Alps bicycle posted earlier.

    I managed to find a replacement meeting my requirements, namely a steel frame and fork, 1" threaded steerer, quill stem, square taper bottom bracket, long reach brakes with space for mudguards and a rack, decent double-wall wheels and a horizontal top tube. Not so many of these around so it took some hunting. Anyhow, this was the result as delivered:



    The old Alps had been sold as a broken frame (netting around £300, to someone capable of restoring it) along with its wheels (another £150) so I set about transplanting some bits and bobs left over onto the new steed to make it a little more Tokyo Tokei...



    This was a fine ride and took me on many adventures...



    I don't have a car so some kind of carrying capability is required, but I eventually swapped out the front "rasket" for a traditional rear rack...



    The light is a B&M IQ-X, powered by a Son hub dynamo, which I built into a new front wheel. The rear rack sports another B&M dynamo-powered light, which has a braking feature and (like the front light) automatic on/off and a stand light.

    I ride in all weathers and day or night, so even with good dynamo lighting I felt a black frame might not give me the best chance against Tokyo's famous traffic, so I added some 3M black reflective tape, barely visible by day...



    ...but they do the job when it gets dark:


    ("lit" by the iphone flash)

    The only parts now remaining from the "new" purchase are the frame and fork and the rear wheel.

    The handlebar and stem, brake levers, saddle, Dura-Ace shifter and rear derailleur are from the old Alps and still performing well. As are the TA Zephry crank and MKS Sylvan pedals. The front wheel, mudguards and rear rack were purchased new.

    The rear hub takes a 10-speed cassette (which I have) but I'm currently running it with 8 cogs, 11 to 36 teeth, with the "9-speed" DA shifter. It's all friction based, so it works perfectly and silently. Simple levers and wires. I have two other cranks and various chainrings from 26 to 46 to use if the need arises, but the thick 8-speed chain will last a long time, and range is more important to me than minimal gaps between gears. I'd fit a 6 or 7 speed cassette if I could get the hubs and same range.

    A friend refers to it as my Totoro bicycle, for some reason...



    ...although I prefer to think of it as slightly modernised version of the English 3-speed.

    Back on the Nukeproof today after replacing all pivot bearings and the back brake........don't mind road biking but MTB is where it's at😁

    Took Totoro to the Tama River today. It flows from the mountains northwest of Tokyo through the western edge of the city and down to the coast near Haneda airport. There is a cycling track for much of its length, which makes for a rare chance to cycle in Tokyo without traffic or red lights:



    I am using a Dura-Ace rear derailleur, ostensibly a "9 speed" but here I am using it on a "10 speed" hub fitted at the moment with an 8 speed cassette. I use a Dura Ace shifter in friction mode, so any 8,9 or 10 speed cassette will work without further adjustment, and I have used all of these with this mechanism. This particular cassette is my widest range, 11-34T, which allows me to run a single crank at the front:



    This is a TA Zephry double. I removed the big ring as I didn't use it with this cassette, and replaced it with a more useful chain guard. I like TA cranks, which have a low Q and are well made. This one takes any chain rings from a 33T upwards. I also have the TA Cyclotouriste double, which will take anything from 24T to 60T. TA chainrings are also well made and last a very long time.

    And a shot of the rear DA derailleur. It is the long cage version, specified to 27T max, but Shimano (lawyers) are conservative:



    It just clears the 34T cog with the B screw fully applied, but to give a little headroom I replaced the guide jockey wheel with a slightly smaller Shimano ceramic one. The original oversized tension pulley with its Dura Ace sealed bearings was still fine, so I cleaned it and left it. It shifts silently and perfectly across the whole range.

    I wish Shimano still made these. I've had these parts for almost 2 decades, but eventually they'll wear. Perhaps I'll be too worn by that time too.

    Nice set up TT. Here is a shot of me riding down the Tama river route you mention. Was a great ride but getting there was exciting riding through the city.

    Aye, borrowed the bike from a friend who lives in Tokyo, he had one road bike and one TT bike so I ended up on that.

    We started early and went quite some distance up river.

    I canít wait to revisit Japan.

    That is so lovely. Bike made purely to enjoy the ride and take in as much as possible. Kudos!

    I got this a few weeks ago and have been enjoying going for a few spins in the locality. This is not one for the purists, but I just wouldn't be cycling at all, if not for the assistance on the hills.



    And speaking of hills - a nice view from last week's cycle from south Dublin.

    That Cannondale looks superb. A guy I ride with has a 3/4 year old version and his battery looks about 2X big as yours. I have recently bought my wife a Specialised E bike. She is riding to places and distances she would never have previously attempted. Its most liberating for both her and my cycling.

    I had another eBike before with a very noticeable battery bolted onto the downtube - this one is a bit more subtle (although it still looks very chunky).

    Exactly my thinking. I'm not blessed with a ton of willpower, so a normal bike would just gather dust or at best, I'd seek out short and easy routes.

    In the market for another bike and noticing the popularity of cycling during lockdown seems to have caused massive inflation in bike prices, with very little in the way of discounts

    Lockdown has made the lower end of market and tatt attract stronger residuals but the good stuff is the same just hard work finding component spares and replacements as everyone is hanging onto stuff

    The shortage of Shimano components due to Brexit Covid XYZ even gained coverage in the broadsheet press recently. Just two weeks ago dropped the gravel bike off for a new hub at the LBS. sorry sir cant get 11 speed shimano rear hubs. I obtained one through the bay from a German seller, ironically cheaper than uk source ( Wiggle etc) when in stock. The guy at the LBS said older stuff eg 9 speed cassettes are like hens teeth. The issue is servicing 5/10 year old bikes with 9/10/11 speed gear is his main business.

    Thanet wheelers jogged a memory

    Thanet road club, my Dad used to ride with them in the 1950ís , think he used to call them Thanet wheelers . He had a Buckley fixed wheel bike.

  43. #2743
    Time to clear the cupboard out then! Got a nice 10speed dura-ace/ultegra mixed groupset, pair of HED Ardennes and a lovely Columbus spirit steel frame taking up space.

    Friend in the bike business is having to be on the ball securing groupsets for full builds, they can shift everything they get shipped over and built up, itís just getting it!

First venture into disc brakes on a road bike and di2 so looking forward to that.

    I bought a carbon gravel bike from them recently and loving it. Very well put together bit of kit; upgrade of the road bike is due soon and probably head back to Canyon.

    They have changed their ordering process apparently to prevent the ridiculous delays they were seeing until recently.

    Funnily enough 8 days after ordering I had a surprise knock at the door today and this was delivered:




    According to UPS it was supposed to be delivered on Friday, so no complaints from me. Now need to find the time to inbox and set it up.

    Annoyingly I set the Canyon up last night and it's slightly too big for me, the issue with buying blind. My last bike was a little on the large side so I'm not going to make do and try to get this to fit me in the same way, so I've initiated a return back to Canyon. I'm an idiot as I now remember deciding ages back that a small would suit me better than a medium and of course in my panic to buy/surprise it was available I went and ordered a medium. Doh.

    Anyways it is what it is. During this small window whilst I wait for Canyon to give me the return details, if anyone had wanted to buy one but isn't able to and wants to take it off my hands it is available. I won't put up a sales post as its not really that, but to give others a chance before it gets returned it is available if someone else wants it. Size medium, in stealth grey. Edited to add I'm in KT10.
