Re: My New KOGA WorldTraveller Signature has arrived (Picture) :)

I guess I would still have to fork out £25.82 (Rose bikes) for a removal tool just to get the old 16T one off? I'd either find a shop or someone who has one, mine is now probably redundant but I'll hang onto it anyway in the unlikely event I need to take the carrier off sometime. Where are you? Man...

Re: My New KOGA WorldTraveller Signature has arrived (Picture) :)

Thanks for pic I've been investigating this one today and it seems, from the Rohloff web site that the old optional rings are now discontinued. So I'm behind the times with this. I guess I would still have to fork out £25.82 (Rose bikes) for a removal tool just to get the old 16T one off? Sri, didn'...

Re: My New KOGA WorldTraveller Signature has arrived (Picture) :)

You were missing a gear before, too? :), well sort of. The conversion to chain drive meant having different sprockets and sizes. I still have the 14 gears of course but there is now one less high gear and one more lower gear. Gear 14 is now what gear 13 was I suppose. I did request it this way but ...

Re: Beginner needs saddle advice

A few years ago now I bought a padded seat cover from Decathlon which I used while breaking in a new Brooks saddle They may still sell them or maybe Amazon may have same. Just a cover that slips over the saddle but has some extra padding (foam or something I cannot remember) Worked OK but had to dit...

Re: Campsite fees

I was told by people running the C&C site in St Neots that it is in their constitution as laid down by the founder that they are not allowed to turn away anyone who turns up that is 'self propelled' that is not motorized. So if your on foot, a bike or even a canoe they must find you a pitch. On ...

Re: Fitting bag onto handlebars.

Klickfix does a range of bag that fit onto the HB A bag normally comes with a attachment fitting BUT you can buy separately a thing called a Extender - this goes between the HB and the normal attachment bracket This should set it free from the control wires - as you can see (I hope) in pic P1010913_...

Re: route recording, cycle apps, garmin etc

I use a Garmin Edge 800 for following routes or as Garmin calls them 'courses' I you ride a route once you can save it to do again as a 'course' Alternatively plot your route(s) with free websites like Bike Toaster or Bike Hike - then download from there direct to the Edge Think you probably need ac...

Re: Sat Nav or OS maps

Paper OS maps are indeed the best to view your overall position However they are heavy, hard to fold, prone to damp and you have to stop to view them I've had a Satmap Active 10 since 2009 and in 2012 bought a Garmin Edge 800 Both, now, have full UK OS mapping (at a price) One great advantage over p...
