    Sizing up the opposition! Going with a few mates for some riding but I'll be constantly slagging it off saying the Costa Blanca is better.

    Off to Flanders next month where I'll do exactly the same, then going to Costa Blanca in Dec & Jan where I'll tell everyone how brilliant it is elsewhere.

    Last time I took a bike on a plane, Bologna baggage handlers destroyed it so a little apprehensive about tomorrow.

    How long you out for ? Got good legs ?
    Guessing the lads you're with know the routes etc ?
    The one thing Mallorca isn't short of is good bike hire places if you didn't want to take yours.
    Never been this late...should be ok weather wise, early September has generally been too hot, or certainly for the climbing days.

    are you after Disc/Tri spoke front in particular or just some fast wheels ?
    What are you using at the minute ?
    Have got a set of these sitting upstairs ;)
    Nice deep section wheels I'll part with. Following a crash just before the SMB 1 day C2C I used the front ...not the wisest move in the wind :lol:

    Not really, I'm selling zipp 404s to my mate for 400.

    Those would suit my bike more like, with the red

    How much?

    Thinking 200-250 ish ?
    Have a think...I'll stick a photo up,
    Can't remember what tubes/ tyres on but I'll leave them on

    Clincher btw..;)

    Be there as usual Easter...not sure when that falls next year.
    Alcudia or Pollenca ?

    If going with a club loads will know routes etc..if not give me

    Do give sant Salvador a go...often overlooked as not in Tramuntana but a belter with amazing views

  12. Somewhere called Soller apparently. Think I'm going to hire rather than faff on getting my bike over.

    Easter is 1st April next year

    We normally go second week Easter as weather generally better than march...or maybe we were unlucky the only time we went March

    Soller handy for Tramuntana as well..one if three popular ways into mountains..
    I've hired bikes every year...i can pm you some links if you want..

    Fucking love the place

    What's FTW ?
    I'm a bit dim ;)
