Size 9 in our case. They don't fit my heels and they end up raw.

My feet have never got on with Docs.
Sad but true.  :(
Same here. I have a pair but do not wear them.

Even sadder for you, Dr Martin!

My feet are long and insubstantial. Docs are too deep for my tootsies and the crease from flexing when walking crushes the forefoot.

I think I'd be fine if my feet were more 'meaty'.

But a gurl of average height, wearing size 8 Docs isn't very pretty...

Audax / Re: Poor Student, 07/01/2017

Phil, had you thought about asking your niece to write up her piece for Casquette or Total Women's Cycling?
It seems like a piece on Audax in a women's cycling magazine might help convince some riders that there is an alternative to Sportives and charity rides

Flashdance. Footloose. Flatulence. All equally entertaining.

Phototalk / Re: Have you been out with your camera today?

Hmm,

I watched the first video and got through 3 photos. Having been told there was music, I was on tenterhooks, and it seemed an age before it started. Then I knew that each photo was given the director's choice of timing, and that that choice would not equate with mine, so I flipped out and watched some Russian car crashes.

I think photos need the viewers timing. I want to click when I have finished feasting on an image (or when the millisecond of boredom has passed) I also think that a bog standard screen does photos no favours, compared with a print. But that is where we are, not everyone has more reasonably sized pixies than the Tory Brexit Plan.

Video is a different ball game from stills, it needs a story, a narrative. A load of great photos is not a story.

Great photos.

It's nothing to do with native american babies on hides is it?

Sounds good. Which of the many books of that title is it?

Ride Reports / Re: To 66°33′46.5″North (and beyond)

Lovely, that brings back memories.  https://www.flickr.com/photos/andrewclark/albums/72157622365574201/page1


I flew to Oslo and then Bodo.  Over to the islands and then up, wild camping most of the way.  I went up the west coast to Andenes , going past what must be one of the worlds most northerly golf courses.  I picked up a dodgy tum which had me turning around and going down the busier east side.  Annoyingly busy & populated when you urgently need a discreet place to stop!   


And yes, the smell of drying fish..... :sick:

The Knowledge / Re: GXP bottom brackets and cranks
« Last post by philip on Today at 11:02:35 pm »
Looking at the manual https://www.sram.com/sram/road/products/sram-red-crankset-10-speed I see there is also something called "PressFit GXP" which might allow the cups to be interchanged. I don't see why one would want to since I still think the GXP crank will always have the axle connected to the drive side.
