Re: New supermarket without cycle parking

(Or at least show that cycles are legally vehicles.) I did, they didn't care. Council error. Please replace council and try again. It'll take more than my vote, not least because I don't have one (neighbouring authority). I do believe their planning policies have moved forward and that a similar ap...

Re: New supermarket without cycle parking

Local Tesco petrol forecourt convenience store had cycle parking included in it's planning application. Sure enough cycle parking was provided, Sheffield stands as far away from the entrance as physically possibly and I have no doubt it was very little used if at all. It became the dumping area for ...

Re: Huret Duopar; flawed genius at work?

I had a couple of XT Super Plates BITD. Seemed pricey but probably cost me less than a M730 that was current at the time would have done. Largely bought because they were there on the LBS shelf rather than my understanding (or even being aware of) its alleged advantages. First one ended up in the sp...

Re: Three Word Story Game (again)

Some enchanted evening you may see a strangler, you may see a strangler across a crowded garotte. And somehow you noose was tied to the gallow tree on a rainy afternoon in Lerwick. Strong winds had been forecast for Gale but she left the room under a cloud of squid ink (may contain nuts). some mint ...

Re: raliegh classic touring bike

My money would be on mid-late 80's, Weinmann centre-pull mid 80's, DC cantis late. May have things confused with the Royal.

Re: Unusual Sachs Front Hub

Sachs 5000 should get you some hits on google, perhaps even a NOS hub or lightly used to salvage spares from.

Whilst I recall Rival and New Success I don't have a memory of 5000 or how it compares.

Forensic investigator PC Robin Youngs added David Cox’s dark clothes could have made him “more detectable” against the sunlight.

Re: Harrasment

Police don’t seem interested these days unless you have proof, but this is harassment. Sounds like an absolute nightmare. I don't have much by way of advice. Gettin...

Re: ancient cycling sign in Chester

So where's that, is it it's original home, It is at the top of Stede Hill, Harrietsham, Kent. Stede.png I was first introduced to it in it's current position about 30 years back.
