Ride of my Life - BBC Documentary

    I presume everyone has read or at least heard of Penn's "It's All About the Bike"? Fantastically accessible and genuinely informative (and I thought I knew something about bikes). Before reading it I knew geometry mattered but I didn't know why.

    And now I do.

    Haven't read it yet, but must check it out.

    Recorded this programme last night and just spent the afternoon watching it, what a great way to build a bike. Really good show.

    Same here... sky+ this last night, watched it today, thought it was excellent. Only downside was the colour scheme he picked... but I suppose that's his own personal preference. Expensive bike all the same.

    I need to get my hands on that book now too.
