Specialized SL Pro Bib Short 2015 - £114.74 | Lycra Bib Road and Mtb Shorts | Cyclestore. Contador shows weakness, but Giro win in sight. SESTRIERE, Italy (VN) — Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo) stumbled just once on his stroll to another grand tour win in the Giro d’Italia. Saturday, one day before the conclusion of the race in Milan, he was unable to respond to his rivals’ attacks on the Colle delle Finestre. Instead of hitching on to the wheels of his opponents or shooting away from them as he has done in the last 19 days, an isolated Contador kept riding at his own pace in the race leader’s pink jersey. Rivals Fabio Aru and Mikel Landa (both of Astana), second and third overall, rode clear with several other GC names on the slopes of the day’s penultimate climb. Contador topped the Finestre 1:28 minutes behind. However, on the descent that followed and then the short climb to the stage 20 finish at the Sestriere ski station, Contador appeared cool and calm, the rider who had already won six grand tours.

“It wasn’t a hunger knock,” he said in a press conference. “I’m not sure. “Hunger flat? 2015 Aprilia V4 1100 Factory aPRC Review.

HED's Belgium C2 rims are one of our top picks for custom built wheels, and are quite possibly the finest aluminum clincher rims available. Using strict manufacturing tolerances and good quality control, HED has produced a near perfectly round rim with extremely parallel machined braking surfaces. Using such tight tolerances allows for wheel builds with better spoke tension balance, increasing the longevity of the build. A nearly imperceptible welded rim seam and wide cross section ensure a high strength-to-weight ratio and maxiumum wheel life.

Prior to machining, the rim surface is bead blasted and black anodized for a clean, elegant look. An additional benefit of the Belgium's wide 23 mm sidewalls is improved tire performance. Black Rims The black HED Belgiums feature the same machined sidewall and brake wear indicator as the silver brake track. Wheel Building We recommend that wheels built with HED rims be assembled by an experienced wheelbuilder. LeMond — Welcome. Welcome to ENVE Composites. Swiss Stop Shimano Brake Pads : Fairwheel Bikes, Cycling Boutique. Swiss Stop is perhaps the most technologically advanced brake pad manufacturer in the bicycle industry.

Original Black An ideal pad for everyday use, Swiss Stop's Black compound works well on all aluminum rims and is well suited for softer alloys, including magnesium. The BXP brake compound is designed for high performance all around use on alloy rims. Black Prince We've replaced Swiss Stop's Yellow king with the new Black Prince compound.

Back 10.18.2012 New 11-speed compatibility service Zipp® Speed Weaponry is pleased to announce details of a new service for customers to convert 2012 model-year Zipp wheels to become compatible with 11-speed cassettes.

What wheels are eligible for the 11-speed conversion? Zipp’s model-year 2012 spoked road wheels. That means only wheels with Beyond Black or Falcon Grey 188 hubs with the red freehub body for use with SRAM and Shimano® cassettes (see photo to right). Older spoked wheels including those with silver hubs and all disc wheels are not eligible. No ZEDTECH wheels can be converted. Zipp’s 2012 wheels with the blue freehub body (designed for use with Campagnolo® cassettes) also may be converted to be Shimano® 11-speed compatible, although this involves a re-dish of the wheel as well as installation of a new axle, end cap, freehub body and spacer.

Important notes: When does the conversion service become available? What is involved? How do I prepare my wheel for this conversion service? Vredestein Fortezza TriComp Slick Folding Tyre | Road Race Tyres. "I purchased these to replace my Continental Grand Prix Attack/Force Road Tyres. Don't get me wrong, those are superb tyres and I rate them very very highly but I like to experiment (with tyres) when the time comes. After a bit of research (big thanks to Wiggle reviewers too) I dropped onto the Vredestein Fortezza TriComp Slicks. Apart from anything else, I loved the fact that I could get these in a black/white combination to match my BMC Pro Machine, they look great. The performance of the tyre is superb, I'm confident on these in pretty much all conditions, which is more than can be said for the slicks I use for racing my motorbike, they really are condition specific!

The new Garmin Edge 510 isn't so much a step up from the likable Edge 500 as it is a 'lite' version of the Edge 800 and new Edge 810.

While lacking that flagship's mapping and navigational functions, the new mid-sized Edge 510 adds a full-color touchscreen, a major satellite system upgrade, a complete redesign of the interface, and a slick smartphone connectivity package that can not only upload your rides when you're done but even download critical alerts while you're on the go. Watch the video below for our review of the Garmin 510: Features and design Garmin Edge 500, 510 and 800 size comparison There's no mistaking the Edge 510's bigger form factor and slightly increased heft over the Edge 500, weighing in at 80g and measuring 85x52x24mm versus the 500's trimmer 58g, 69x48x22mm body.

Adding to the visual heft is the 510's squared-off case as compared to the 500's more gently rounded design. The back of the 510 features a rubber cover for the mini USB port Interface and performance. Gallery: NAHBS 2013: Holland Cycles. CHRIS KING HEADSETS | Chris King Precision Components.

Orica-GreenEdge's Svein Tuft takes race lead in Belfast - Daniel Martin crashes out of race Orica-GreenEdge won the opening team time trial of the 2014 Giro d’Italia in Belfast on Friday, putting Svein Tuft in the pink jersey. Turning 37 today, Tuft’s teammates granted him the touching gift of electing him to cross the line first, and thus taking the jersey. There was disappointment for the home crowd however, as Dan Martin (Garmin) crashed dramatically and was forced to abandon. In a seemingly innocuous road, the crash was eerily reminiscent of the one Martin suffered in the run in to Liege, and the Irishman will be berating his frustrating run of misfortune.

Three teammates were also felled and Garmin’s time was greatly affected, finishing 3-26 down. The other favourites all finished relatively close together, apart from Rigoberto Uran (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) and Cadel Evans (BMC Racing), whose teams finished second and third respectively.
