Seeing as you're looking at that size of bike, I think that 175s are fine and would think that maybe that's the same size you're running on...

Kind of yes, kind of no. If it’s a utility wheel for now to lay down some miles, then those are more than fine. The hubs should last you a long time. My own wheels (were my fat boy race wheels but...

When I was training hard and at my fastest a few years ago now, I was trialling High Fat Low Carb. Kind of Keto but not really adhering to the hard core ketosis principles, just having lots of...

Probably don’t take this as weighing in but rather thinking out loud.

I saw a lot of chat about going tubeless up to maybe a year ago but not much has come across my radar since. I’m a bit like...

I've been bouncing up and down and around in between 110-140kg over the past 10 years. On road, I ride 28/32 to Kinlin 28mm deep rims. Had them trued after the first few rides and have stayed true...

I'd just be replacing the rear with another 23-11 and keeping the front at 50. If you really want to, you could look at getting a larger large chainring, but they're not cheap usually and the gains...

I'm with SethAZ here in saying that while those wheels may work....for now....but they're definitely not designed with a rider like yourself in mind. That spoke count can work when paired to the...

It's worth contemplating that anything that is freer flowing will afford both yourself and others less protection

If you’re just going to be riding on the road or smooth trails, a mountain bike is a good start. Typically the legal eagles say no to anyone over 300lb and often less, but that number is most often...

FOR ME my issues all broke down to my gluteus medius. The symptoms described were me 100%.

I have come across a sensational masseuse who is a fixer. She doesn't mess about. If you have an issue,...

I think that adopting the Clydesdale monniker could be a bad marketing decision. Our market is actually a small one, just look at how much is available out there compared to "standard". I think...

Frame material really doesn't mean as much as a lot of people think. How a bike is put together means so much more. Just saying that you need steel is a red herring as an alloy bike built one way can...

That depends where you look. The reality is that the vast majority of track bikes wonít be ridden like that so itís a small market to sell to. At the top of the tree where the real development...

Because as a friend put it to me, I'm like a piano with a parachute. As a 6'5" rig that sees aero as some fairytale story, that "2500" watts still won't get me terribly fast. That is a peaky short...

This is right on the money. There's lots of guys waving their things around with high peak wattages that just can't deliver with F200 times. The big boppers that I know don't give a damn about a peak...

If you're just riding gravel paths, so nice and flat and smooth and not much "offroad" style then any frame of any material should be enough to handle your weight. Do shy away from the superlight...

I'd have a serious look at the Canyon Grail. I have an Ultimate in 3XL (equivalent to 2XL in current models) and it's a totally awesome bike. I'm a long leg and arm 6'5". I had a Felt prior to that...
