For £100 more, Planet X are offering their RTD-80 with hydraulic disc brakes. Link.

The Fulcrum Racing Sport wheels supplied with this are garbage. Mine lasted two months before the rear bearings died. They were replaced under warranty with so called uprated bearings with an extra seal. Three months later the front wheel bearings packed in - got these fixed at my local bike shop to save the hassle of boxing up and sending away the wheels. The final nail in the coffin was the rear bearings giving up the ghost a whole 7 months after they where initially replaced. Oh, and they wouldn't stay true for love nor money.

Im not heavy nor ride on particularly bad roads, I also remove wheels before I wash the bike.

My advice is budget for some better wheels in the near future.

Does it have compact cranks ?
Yes. The chainset is listed as 172.5mm 34/50. 172.5 mm is the length of the cranks, 34/50 is the number of teeth on the inner and outer chainrings, commonly referred to as compact. This compares to a "standard" chainset, with 39/53 teeth. More teeth in the chainring pull more chain per revolution (so you would go faster for the same pedal rate) but will need more force to turn (so you may compensate by changing down a gear at the rear, or pedalling more slowly).

What are the gear shifters like with these srams, do you move the brake lever to shift up or do you move the paddle?
Brake and shifting action are both operated by a single lever. Short stroke is for downshift, a longer one to shift upwards. Easy to get used to and works well. You just have to be more careful to begin with. I do prefer traditional Shimano approach though.
Thanks, so you swing the brake lever inward, and depending on how far you push it dependson whether it's up or down? Sounds quite different. How far do you need to swing in for upshift?I have 8 speed shimano2300 with thumbshifters and I find the length of swing to shift upwards quite excessive! What is the system that has 2 paddles, one for up and one for down?
You don't push the brake lever at all. That was misinformation. There is a single paddle beneath the break lever. One click for up, two clicks for down. I prefer it to the shimano option, though I did have cheaper shifters back then...
Thanks, so can you go up more than 1gear at a time? I assume you have to do single long pushes, my 2300 will shift up 3 sprockets i think with one long swing of the right brake lever.

You can only go up by one at a time but you can go down by up to three at a time.

To me they almost feel electronic, shifting fast with a very satisfying loud click. I'd advise you try it out and see if it's for you.

My thoughts exactly...utter lack of customer service! They appear to have taken payment as well, but are in the process of refunding me...double insult!

I'm just hoping that I'm not a victim of a bait and switch i.e. a cancelled order due to the unforeseen popularity of the deal.

I'm writing to their sales manager, but I don't expect it'll do much good.

I appreciate your response back to me. I have got a road cycle a while ago, but actually have had the chance to take it for a spin. Been looking for a ideal quite day which isnt raining,. That hasn't happen for me, when ive had the free time.
I got it fairly cheap, on a deal from tescos direct. It's a Vertigo Carnaby 700c Unisex Road Bike. I cant seem to find any information if these tyres would be suited to it or not. I am no pro rider, but wanting to get into it on the cheap. This look a good way of doing so. Can you tell me, in your opinion do you think these tyres widths would be ok?
The tyres are not performance tyres so are not really for pros. Idewal for the occasional ride. Your bike will run a 700x23 easy, but might feel uncomfortable. Your bike will run a 23 width adna 25 width fine. I always buy 700x25. I would run 700x28 but my fork will not allow them to fit. I would imagine that you could probably run up to x28 width, if in doubt, cycle along to your local bike shop and ask them what the maximum width tyre you could run would be, they'd normally be happy to check. Whilst the tyres in this offer are not really for racing, they may prove uncomfortable for some.
when you say uncomfortable. Are you referring to fact that the width of the tyre is narrow, and thus the balance?
Where do you find the information for width of the tyre, on the tyre then? What would you be looking for?
It's not a matter of balance, but with a wider tyre you have more rubber in contact with the ground taking the impact from the road.
As i thought. I got a balance problem. Just trying to work out what tyres came with the bike i purchased

decent wheels, I have been through four sets of them. they last about 3000 miles with heavy use.
That's hard to believe - I've had second-hand wheels (i.e. already part-used) last twice as long as that. What are you doing to them?!
I commute every day to work in all weathers, 10 miles each way. flat out. I also live in Bath and North East Somerset and its hilly as hell, so the brakes get used a fair bit on steep descents. Believe me, its true!I have never had any set of wheels last 3000 miles. Either the rims go completely concave, or the hub gets destroyed. In which case, its not worth repairing, as they are cheap wheels anyway.

I'm going to go out on one here and say that you could significantly improve your braking if you use some top rubber like the Swissstop Pro green jobbas. They will cost you less and you will notice a HUGE difference!
Must be some placebo going on as I switched to some expensive pads and didn't notice much difference at all. A bike service does make a huge difference though if you get them to adjust the brakes.

adjusting the brakes is a very simple thing to do (probably the easiest bit of bike maintenance you can do) no need to get the bike serviced for that.

Great tyres and this is a good price for them. Been riding on them for a good while. They're tough and at the 700x25 roll reasonably fast. Unfortunately only a couple of sizes are available at this price, the other size is more expensive and the sizes I'd need are out of stock. Good for those who need the available sizes.
If I'm 700cx28 which one do I need to get? it's not labelled correctly or states this like the others

It looks like you won't be able to get 700x28 - as the other sizes are smaller or much bigger. Depending on the type of bike you'd be able to ride the 700x25. It's narrower, so it would fit whatever space is currently using 700x28. It's whether you like or feel comfortable with a narrower tyre. I use the 25 on my road bike and I like that it strikes a balance of not being too skinny, like a 23, but not so wide that it's slow. Really good for pothole and glass strewn city streets.

As mentioned by the OP, these aren't great in the wet.

I've got these and they stand up well our roads, great price. The Racing 3's are available at merlin with an extra 10% off (making them £288) if you're after something better.

How much do they actually weigh? Fulcrum always seem to exaggerate on their weight claims...

I think mine were a few grams over the claimed weight but still lighter than the shallower Mavic Aksiums they replaced, so far they've stayed truer too. These have had about 5,000 km the mavics lasted 10/15,000 before the spokes pulled through the rim.

Bike wheels have nipples?!

Yes red ones so you look more bling and go faster. Also they are quite useful for tensioning the spokes.

They would be about 7% better, but exactly 23% more difficult to fit
Rather than trying (and failing) to be funny, why not try and be helpful?!

would these be better than the standard fit btwin triban 3 wheels ? also would they be difficult to fit & any tools required to fit the rear chain set. i guess front is just a straight swap
would appreciate any advice ta.
It depends on the type of riding you do. Flat day-to-day riding or the odd commute, I doubt you'll notice much difference. If you do a lot of hillier route, or a lot of climbing, then I would expect these to make life slightly easier (even if it's a placebo effect. New wheels = try harder ;) )

With regards to changing them, you'll need a chain whip and cassette removal tool so that you can take the rear cassette off, and put it on your new wheels. These wheels are 8, 9, 10 & 11 speed, so they should work with the 2300 groupset that I believe comes with the Triban 3, but you will need to use a spacer (which should come with the wheels).

If you're happy to purchase the tools, and are keen to give it a go, then there are plenty of guides online that tell you how. I'd start with looking at the GCN channel on YouTube. Otherwise, check with a couple of LBS (local bike shops) to see what they'll charge to change and fit the wheels for you.

I have Mavic CXP22's on my specialised allez at the moment. Would these be a significant upgrade?
I have cxp22 too and am wondering the exact same thing. However, I'm not sure it will be anything huge as the mavics cost nearly the same
Sorry... Ignore what I just said. Just seen the rrp. Not sure
Yeh the rrp is quite different, but is it just inflated? Hopefully someone with a bit more knowledge will enlighten us.
Many years ago 24 spoke was for time trialing and 28 to 32 was road racing and 36 was for training,presume its the rim and spoke strengths and more knowledge has seen the use of low spoke count.

I think your percentage calculations are only 49.49849% right. :p

The RRP of £225 is a bit misleading. They can be had widely for between £95 (Evans & others) - £120 (almost everywhere) in wider colour range.
£115-£120 seems the going rate elsewhere. Evans' £95 is only for rear.

Yes, you're right about Evans - missed that.
