Re: Rear derailleur guard

I had one that came on an MTB I rode in the 80's. Added to the faff removing/fitting the rear wheel. Wasn't long before I left it off permanently.

As with any such thing there will be sets of circumstances where it helps, others where it doesn't. IMO save your money.

Re: Walking past No Entry Signs

On 22nd July 2019, Mark Yeats an Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs confirmed the Muddy Lane Map Modification Order.

This means that Muddy Lane is now a bridleway and can be used by cyclists.

Re: Help for commuting

Welcome to the forum. If your intention is to ride the four miles each way, without extending further, then I'd say wear whatever's comfortable. At a gentle pace on a flattish commute that could even be your normal work clothes. Jackets, hats, and gloves are the most easily varied with temperature a...

Bit of a long shot but a Twitter appeal with date, time and location might find one of them.

Re: B&M Ixon IQ Premium 80lux

Can I ask what batteries you use gaz? I will be running it on Sanyo EneloopX, 2480mAh. Yet to have a night run beyond my initial test. That'll change in a few weeks time. Whilst I still dislike the bracket, I have discovered that reversing the fittings and using a spacer from my Philips makes thing...

Re: 3 in 1 Oil

Tin of 3-in-1 left behind in the garage when I moved in. I didn't use it on the transmission until the tin of BP oil left next to it had run out. In wet weather it needs re-applying more than once a week, and it does build up a tarry deposit if you don't clean parts for a couple of weeks. I tend to ...

Thanks for the reminder. I'd squirrelled Cycle away when it dropped on the doorstep and forgotten about the voting papers :oops: .

Re: Bluewater anti cycling stance

Vectos are simply doing whatever their client (Bluewater) has paid them to do. At present I am wondering whether it was a fishing trip at the Public Inquiry's round table discussion, to see if anybody else present would jump on their bandwagon. Thinking about it further the real client will be Lend ...

Re: Bike frame price increase after order placed and paid for legal?

Some retailers take payment immediately, some at despatch, others at delivery, check your card statement. Is it just ordered, or ordered and paid for in full? Then check the small print in the terms and conditions, particularly as they relate to purchases that are "out of stock" and the re...

Re: IAN195/16 is dead, long live CD195.

Nope CD239 does not cut it as it has no specification for how rough a cycle track should be (worst case). IRI is an international measurement of roughness and is not specified by CD239. As a scientist I like to measure things. If I want to measure voltage I use a voltmeter. Similarly if I want to m...

... The cycle design specs seem to be sprayed around many different documents. This spec refers to other specs, it is not definitive but sends you on a paper trail. ...

IAN195/16 is dead, long live CD195.

Don't worry, it's just gone from it's status as an Interim Advice Note to being a full part of DMRB.

Time to update and reference the correct paragraphs and tables in future.
