I think both have their place and actually both perform different but equally valid roles.
I see this website as being the authoritative source for club information (contact details, club records, calendar etc) and I see the Facebook group as being a great place to get simple messages out to a wide audience as quickly as possible.
The big advantage this site has is that it is a lot easier to find information because it is more structured. For instance, if I want to look up who won the Guardian Cup in 1982 it’s fairly easy to do that here but would be hopeless on Facebook which is really just a collective stream of consciousness with anything more than a few days old disappearing into obscurity.
However because it is so popular, Facebook is the ideal mechanism for getting fairly transient stuff that is relevant today but won’t be tomorrow out to the widest possible user base as quickly as possible.
The stuff Ady is proposing to improve access to the facebook posting from within this site for the benefit of those who don’t use FB seems like a good compromise to me.
So, in summary, this site is the best place to record important stuff that we want to be in full control of and want to be certain that we can always retrieve if we need to. Facebook is great for the endless stream of trivia that helps us to generally stay in touch with the day to day activities of the club.
By the way, big thanks to Ady for all the work you put in on this site, I know just how much of a time commitment it can take to keep a site like this up and running!Steve MalkinParticipant24 January 2015 at 18:26Post count: 13Steve MalkinParticipant28 September 2014 at 18:09Post count: 13Steve MalkinParticipant3 September 2014 at 11:38Post count: 13Steve MalkinParticipant20 August 2014 at 21:25Post count: 13Steve MalkinParticipant1 August 2014 at 11:33Post count: 13

Tremendous weekend Graham and Anne thanks for all your hard work and support, it really is appreciated.
Thanks also to all in the group I rode back with for looking out for me, could never have made it without your encouragement and support. I hope It wasn’t too much of a nuisance having to wait for me at the top of every hill!
I must now be the holder of the ‘slowest Llanberis run ever’ title, but I’m hoping to improve for next year, bring it on!!Steve MalkinParticipant19 February 2014 at 18:51Post count: 13Steve MalkinParticipant10 November 2013 at 20:42Post count: 13Steve MalkinParticipant10 November 2013 at 19:50Post count: 13Steve MalkinParticipant10 November 2013 at 19:37Post count: 13Steve MalkinParticipant27 October 2013 at 23:55Post count: 13
No, they’re not all the same, but nearly all are either ‘shimano’ or ‘campag’ compatible.
I suspect your FSA calipers will use Shimano compatible pads. Check out this site and see if you can identify yours from the pictures.
