"  So... Most of my bikes have disc brakes and they have pro and cons. I am big fan of disc brakes, you brake much better, they are easier to modulate and the braking point in not on top of the wheel but on the center so when you brake the bike…"

Matt Curry replied to Lois Barmby's discussion Disc brakes or not ?
"I know some of the older model bikes come with a hydraulic set mounted on the handle bars...although this won't be an issue when you first start out it may become problematic when you want to add aero bars in the future."

Tony replied to Lois Barmby's discussion Disc brakes or not ?
"No reason at all to be honest. Have got disc brakes on a cyclocross bike and they stop much better in the wet (than quite expensive Campag Record brakes on my road bike), their modulation is more predictable and frankly I feel more confident going…"

Disc brakes or not ?

A colleague of mine is looking to get into Triathlon and is pondering her first road bike purchase. She’s going for a Liv which I think will suit her perfectly as she quite petite. She is thinking about disc brakes and while in the past I would’ve advised against I now know disc brakes are allowed in BTF races since Jan 2018. She is pretty light so don’t think the minimal extra weight of them would be a bother and I know from my commuter bike disc brakes are very good. Can anyone think of any…See More

Hi all Like many I'm sure you've seen the news and have been appalled at the way the people and the families of the Windrush generation have been treated. There is a fund that has been started to help with the legal costs of those who have been victims of the system issues https://uk.gofundme.com/windrush-justice-fund that it would be cool if we donated even the smallest amount to each, and we should share and talk about 22nd June…See More

Hi Lois, thats great my 6.30 swim this morning was a little challenging so I'm really looking forward to getting some decent training going again.
