I am currently running some tubeless Racing Ralphs. Very Happy with them but not sure how they will handle a muddy course, like the mont could end up being. They were fine at the Scott in damp…Continue

Don't know if this is the approriate place to post. If not please delete it.

 

I'm looking for an affordable second hand 29er fork. Something decent but not to high end. Maybe a tora or a recon with the old 1 1/8 steerer? Anyone got one lying around the garage and looking for a little extra cash?

i hate to say it - but after bagging out everyone for jumping on the 29er craze - they do appear to be better

Hi Jeremy. Don't blame you mate - TCR is quite a bike! For roadie wheels, I can heartily recommend Shimano Dura Ace - best of both worlds - carbon rim with alloy breaking surface - super light, and none of the usual carbon wheel fears!! Not too expensive either. Stick some Michelin Pro race 3 or 4 tyres on too and you'll fly!!

Oh yeah and Nat - i second the run down Black Mountain or some of the downs out at the cotter will get the pulse going pretty quick, and those damn road bike brakes dont slow you down anywhere near as quick as good disc break set up.

Hey Peter - yeah it does, was looking at some older stock. To be honest i have a soft spot for the Di2 equiped TCR - mmmmmmmm......

You sound like a man in the know -  what would you recommend as a good wheelset that isnt going to break the bank (roady that is)? Im still getting around on a 2006 Giant OCR which weights in at a staggering 9.8kg of which i think 2.2 or so is in the Alex wheelset :)

One day Pete, I might give it a go but until then Scott RC 29er all the way!!!

Comment by Peter Taylor on April 16, 2012 at 12:09

Ha ha ha - Couple of quick descents down Black Mountain will change your mind :) Nothing mind numbing there mate!

Go on, you know you want one!! Besides, a 29er HT is only one step away from a roadie anyway :)

p.s. That intense is as stunner!

p.p.s. Jeremy, I think the Spec Roubaix now has internal cabling - defo worth a look
