Re: A positive thread

An even more enjoyable photo - with the dropped bike to tickle one’s fancy/add to the mystery. I’ve tried to straighten your horizon, but fear it’s gone too far the other way? Love it John :D I won’t/can’t tell you what it reminds me of - when considered in a two dimensional way once minimised and i...

Re: Found - Twenty Quid

Years ago before coming back to Wales, to live and bask forever in baradws (Snowdonia), whilst staying at what was then a ‘funky’ pre refurb Bryn Tyrch Inn in Capel Curig for a couple of nights midweek. I’d been out walking with a new exciting beautiful girlfriend up Moel Siabod on a really grand la...

Re: Trends in windy days

Well I disagree with that. I live not so far away. Nearer to the coast which is drier than the mountain massive. My observation and records show notably Nantgwtnant to be windier over the last few years - given that I cycle most days of the year. Even Porthmadog sometimes sees greater wind speeds, ...

Re: Trends in windy days

It definitely is here in my part of Snowdonia. I've kept a daily record of my cycling over the last 5 or so years (average cycling days per year 354) and always logged whether it was benign, breezy, windy, gales or too dangerous to cycle. Last year and this year there are large increases in windines...

Re: Can anyone recommend to me a breathable, brightly coloured & reflective waterproof jacket?

Re: Can anyone recommend to me a breathable, brightly coloured & reflective waterproof jacket?

As you say, it's a very personal thing. I bought a red Gore Bike Wear 'JGPATH' model Paclite jacket at lease 9 years ago. Very light due to not having a separate mesh liner. Fitted me like a glove even though it's a SMALL and I'm a 37" chest, which suggests their guide is a bit peculiar. It's n...

Peel them off completely? They're only logos which may or may not impress your mates or thieves? :lol:

Re: Can anyone recommend to me a breathable, brightly coloured & reflective waterproof jacket?

Hi julk, Jamesh, Mike & NUKe, The Paramo Men's Quito Jacket - the colour of the yellow hi vis one is good but it says that the jacket weighs 500g and to me I worry that this might be a bit thick/ heavyweight and it could lead to me overheating. It also has a hood and when cycling I wouldn't use...

Re: Rim brake wear Velo Orange 'RAID' rims a visual illustration

^ Interesting info amediasatex, many thanks indeed Just measured the internal width of a new silver anodised Halo Whiteline 700C rim = ~18mm Compared to a polished silver new Halo Whiteline 700C rim = ~20mm Normally I'd prefer 17-18mm rims - given that I run undersized 32mm Vitorria Randonneur Pro t...

Re: Rim brake wear Velo Orange 'RAID' rims a visual illustration

Thank you Samuel D :oops: With regard to highly polished gently curved large ERD rims with ~17mm internal widths, there only appears to be the newer VO 'Enterprise' with an eye watering RRP of £79.99 each, or the equally impressive looking H Plus Son TB14 @ £60 each from Spa and The Cycle Clinic (I ...
