Thanks. :)

Though triathletes spend a lot of our time on the bike, we use some different pieces of equipment. For example, aerobars (i.e., clip-on and integrated), forward seat posts or even more goofy stuff I only see triathletes using; like strange drinking systems. Profile and Syntace make some aero water bottles for mounting between aerobars. XLab, Profile, Minoura, etc. have rear-mounts (of the saddle) for water.

Just some thoughts.

The aerobar & clip-on bar category is also in my mind since a while - they aren't bar ends and they aren't handlebars.
Will be done next together with the tyre split-up.

Thanks for all your work on the site; it rocks.

You're welcome. :D

Could you include the RRP £££ of each item in the listings ?
I know things / prices change rapidly but it would be handy for a guide.
Maybe even a price along with a "price at this date" column.
you could go the whole hog and list the supplier with "that" lowest price ?

Regards, and keep up the cool site,
sorry if my post sounds negative but you were asking for ideas !!

Really a good idea, but our intention is to be as uncommercial as possible.

Thanks for the cool site etc. I have no problem uderstanding the listings etc.. but road and mtb hardtail frame sections could be the obvious choice to seperate. The best way to improve is to make more of us weenies sumbit info about our bikes and parts. This will allow for a more extensive database.
And yes, I'm working on it.
Also tel all to ride more.

excellent site !!!

but is there a direct button for me to click in order to see bikes from readers and read their setups (most interesting !!!)? cause now I get there through the news section, by clicking one of the bikes mentioned there ! I may have overlooked it though...if there isn't a direct link...that's a thought perhaps ?!?!

Otherwise...MOST EXCELLENT !!!!!!!!!

ps in a few months I'll post my new bike aprox.7.7kg with pace RC31 :D

A little bit off-topic, but anyway:
you can find 'em in the articles section.

yea no problem, be uncommercial!

but a column like eg 'price paid' is really a good idea and doesnt mean any further effort but the user now typing one more thing than before. i think it should be added. another feature could be 'currency-translation'; so that you either can choose what currency will be displayed OR there are - say - 3 pricecolumns for the most typical currencies (i guess $, € and the stuff they pay with in GB would do; you just submit the price in your currency and the board then translates it into the other currencies - either by current exchange rate or by a fixed one that just gets renewed from time to time)

btw: sometimes when entering the forum the frame disappears and you cant go back except using your browser-button

I modified the layout, now this should be solved.

Great site, but it should be nice to divide hubs into front and rear hubs.

There's a link "Weight Weenies Forum Index" to the right of the [new post] button.
