Why log yourself in here for the sole sack of posting that rubbish?

I agree with Jack and Shadow.

To get this email, you must have signed up to receive them, and have been receiving free advice from Simon on a weekly basis since you did. Yes some of his emails are promoting his business, of course they are, he'd be an idiot if he didn't. So all he is saying is if you think he's a good coach then vote for him.

I get his emails, some of his free tips are good, but I haven't voted for him.

Get a life. see conversation

I've just done exactly that...upgraded from Tiagra to 105, and an ultegra rear mech after I got one cheap off fleabay.

105 is better shifting, although I've not tuned it right yet so can't notice the difference yet.

You can use 10 speed shifters with a 9 cassette, as long as you set the limit screws right. I don't think you can do it the other way round. see conversation

I did a lot of research on this recently, and it pretty much boiled down to it doesn't matter what length you use.

Longer length = more leverage, but slower cadence as your foot has further to travel
Shorter length = less leverage, but higher cadence as your foot travels less

Overall power remains the same.

The factors that do matter are:
- your prefered riding style, ie do you spin, or do you mash?
- your body position - a shorter crank lets you position your seat higher, so more aero see conversation

Put my TT bike up on fleabay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/110766377192? ... 1555.l2649

If you're interested let me know, and if we work something out I'll take it off there.

There's a few other bits on there too. see conversation

So it depends how much you love the Vengence? If you're putting in loads of training miles (which you'll need to for IM) it's going to get damaged/ worn out, and you'll need more replacements.

It also depends if you are racing for the best time possible, or just to do it?

In terms of what's best to race on, hands down it's a tri-bike. There are a few decent entry level tri-bikes for £1000 I think, but it will be a compromise on frame, kit, or wheels (or all of them).

....But...my first few years of tri I raced on a roadie with aero bars and good wheels, I've only switched to a tri-bike this year, and so far I haven't seen a huge improvement in time tbh. see conversation
