Re: Elliptical chainring.... suppliers

At 110BCD 34T is the smallest round ring commonly available. 36T doesn't leave much scope for introducing an elipse. As meic says 38T was a common Biopace ring (Stronglight Bio-Strong, Sakae OvalTech) and you should find something via ebay/cycle jumbles. Modern 38T are also available, most likely at...

Re: Joint membership- why does CUK discriminate ?

*I presume this discounted rate still exists but it is not specifically mentioned on the membership page - it only gives the fee for an "Individual in employment between the ages of 18 and up to 64 years." Maybe we're too old to join at all now. :lol: Senior rate is still on the page: htt...

Re: Old Suntour 6 speed - could it be indexed ?

You are quite likely to find some Suntour Accushift thumbshifters on ebay.

IME matching with Shimano 8 speed shifters gives acceptable ather than smooth results.

Re: NCN6 weirdness

... it seems to me that if you came to a Public Footpath sign then you were definitely NOT on the right route - cyclists aren't allowed to cycle on footpaths, only on bridleways, so the NCN route wouldn't follow something that is only a footpath. ... Please be assured that the NCN does follow publi...

Re: NCN6 weirdness

NCN6.jpg Signing on the NCN is "patchy". Local authority budgets and priorities don't always allow for clearing vegetation from signs, replacing missing signs, turning vandalised signs back the right way, or sometimes even sticking a sign up in the first place. Volunteer Ranger coverage i...

Traditional mixte frames would have a lower top tube than you are proposing: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=122906&p=1244830#p1244830

Re: E-bikes,scooters and motorbkies

The bigoted and offensive contributions to this discussion persuade me to leave this forum. It is not easy to ignore such remarks and I understand how they have made you feel. If you do feel that you must leave now I hope you will consider returning at some point in the future. BTW it is possible t...

Re: Inconsiderate club cyclists

I am not responsible for ANY other road user’s actions but it would be naive not to realise that people stereotype. Yes. We all know we should not but it happens a lot and much of the ire is directed at people on bikes. When it happens, call it out. Otherwise people's prejudices will just be reinfo...
