And your evidence is?

Silence.....no reply or has the truth about the sport hurt you?

People I train with. 

Also, folks like the 60 year old school teacher getting busted in Kona a couple of years ago. Tri and Ironman do so little testing that it is an open secret that it is rife (if you've been in the sport for as long as me you will see the obviousness of it)

Oh and the multiple drug cheats racing pro. Google it.

Hi all I was on wiggle today looking at the Giro Synthe, there was a  2015 model available for £100. However if I log on from an Irish URL, the price increases by £34 plus. This is despite there being a free delivery policy to Ireland and the UK still being in the EU. This is particularly galling as the argument of language barriers cannot be used. If I use an address in the North of Ireland, the price immediately drops to the £100 as on the website. Is this not double standards and false advertising?? While not really surprised at multinationals - I expected a bit of decorum from our bike traders. Obviously not

 

 

Typical case of a customer not understanding the legalities of tax but blaming the company. I am non lover of wiggle, they've questions to answer about the authenticity of a lot of what they sell but to give them a kicking because of this is rubbish. You will, however, find your local bike shop full of people who care, do it right and want to help. Give them a go.

They are a massive company and you are just a number, sadly.

But no doubt you are cool with the INSANE amounts of doping at AG and pro level at the moment in the sport?

Does anyone question why a brand doesn't think about its consumers and what they may want to do in the future? Giant are the same.

You don't need an aero helmet unless you get really seriously into it. I wear an Oakley ARO5 road helmet (they call it aero but it isn't really) for all of my riding (training, commuting, racing) because it is comfy - that is the most important thing.

The Kask Rapido always seems pretty stand out in terms of comfort and price. Beware of buying online though, a couple of the bigger online retailers that you will know have a tendency to sell pretend Kasks (and Giro for that matter) - your local bike shop will maybe be a fiver more than the online price but at least you can be assured that it is genuine. They are about £60 I believe.
