Re: CTC - Cycling UK AGM motion Number 5

I submit that CTC would still be a club if only the votes of members who'd expressed their preference themselves in that matter had been counted. Assume for a moment that we had a voting system that did not allow for undirected proxy voting. I believe that those Members who gave the Chair their und...

Re: CTC - Cycling UK AGM motion Number 5

It categorically includes every valid Member vote, regardless of how it was cast. One Member (eligible to vote), one vote. Votes can be cast in person at the AGM or by proxy. Proxy votes can be via the Chair or any other person attending. Proxy votes can be either directed or undirected. Every singl...

Re: Does anyone know whats a good 2nd hand bike within £200-£600?

Does anyone know if these bikes are any good? They don't look it to me. The first is described as 21 speed, the second as 7 speed. The first is pictured as 14 speed, the second variously as 7 or 14 speed. The second also has pictures with flat bars and with drop bars. Two different wheel sizes are ...

Re: small lead-acid sealed gel batteries

BITD a variety of high powered halogen front lights were powered from such batteries. I last used one (4.2 Ah) around five or six years ago for that purpose. Shortly after switching from running 13W of halogen bulbs to 2W of LED I decided 4 x AA gave more than adequate run time for a fraction of the...

Re: CTC - Cycling UK AGM motion Number 5

Thanks Gaz, I'd seen those. When I was asking historically I was probably thinking of back in the good old days that some seem to think were different. Do you have a source for voting numbers for previous decades? I'm sure they'll be recorded somewhere and you seem to know how to find such things :...

Re: Best racks for 20" wheeled bikes?

Useful thread . IME 20" wheel specific racks on adult folders have considerable issues around heel strike if used with panniers. I do have a small Carradice set which (with a bit of fiddling about) can be put far enough back to work although they then obscure the side view of any rack mounted l...

Re: laurel or yanny?

First time I heard this at was a distinct and undeniable "laurel". Every time since it has been "yanny".

I can only assume some differences in bass/treble/tone of the speakers on various devices.

Good find.

Worth noting that the various linked resources are from conferences in past years. I expect yesterday's will appear there in due course.
