Wasn't today but over the weekend all the same, I got 2 x Challenge Criterium tubs for 50AUD each (normally $100AUD+), actually thinking of going back to the store today to totally clear them out of their Challenge Tubs at that price :D

Looks like the ingredients for a good wheel build. Which spokes?

My tune speedneedel saddle arrived yesterday. I rode it today the first time! Just amazing. Very comfy. (But was just a 50km ride)
So far I can recommend it. :)

And yesterday I made me my name tag, Fancy, isn't it!

A new seat post from AX Lightness! The Deadalus UNI. It has been finished with a layer of ad carbon and has a higher max user weight then the standard deadalus. Therefore it is a bit heavier as well.

With the extra beef in the new seat post, is it now approved for cylocross use, or does cyclocross still require massive metal parts?

Hello roberto,

with reference to your email we are unable to accept your complaint.

We would like to inform you, that our products are developed for riding, road and MTB. At cycle cross, the rider continues jumping onto the saddle, witch is special in this sport. This causes unusual forces.

You should use massive metal parts, not elements made from fibre materials for your sport.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/With best regards

i. A. Jutta Bauer


I honestly can't believe a company that makes weight weenie top end products is recommending me to use "massive metal parts" for "my sport"...
As I wrote then, has i. A. Jutta Bauer been watching old Saturday Night Live Coneheads epiosdes? "We invite you to consume mass quantities of metal for the seat post on your cyclocross bike - from a small town in France."

Would be fun to see the amount of extra carbon used on the inside, compared to at "normal" one.
