Re: ...how to stop peeling

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 ...

Re: Spanninga Pixeo mudguard light - for parts.

Sorry Gaz :( Had a good delve with no success and then remembered I gave it, attached to a surplus used SKS mudguard, in response to a wanted request for the latter :roll:

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

Have you ever considered Exal's LX17? 575g, 23mm outside width, £25 @ Spa. Ah, but . . . I have this ridiculous aesthetic, where I must have highly polished rims that aren't funny squared off/angular shapes :roll: As mentioned previously I'm not complaining about 6629 miles for a rim - and if the H...

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

Any idea what thickness the braking surfaces were new? I'd guesstimate about 1.2mm max Very difficult/impossible to measure in a meaningful way - is the answer. I tried. The variation was beyond meaningful, using dental 'instruments' and custom ground vernier calipers. Was so variable around any gi...

The roads of Snowdonia aren't at all flinty or sandy - much less rim wear up here than I experienced in Wiltshire :)

6629 miles of all year round whatever the weather, rear wheel (front noticeably not worn as much yet). Cycling exclusively in the mountains of Snowdonia. Lots of salt but no flint like previous Wiltshire domain/habitat. Shimano V brakes - with mostly Clarkes MTB Elite CPS301 pads Thinnest worn brake...
