Re: Centre lock brakes question

Is the lock ring tightening or bottoming out on the threads with the rotor still with excessive play?

Re: More Trump idiocy

........ If that kind of thing happened here then we'd see an exodus of foreigners. Meanwhile 3m foreigners have applied for settled status in the UK and our border force has a difficult job stopping people coming here illegally. Maybe you have not noticed Almost 5,000 nurses and midwives from EU27...

Re: helmets from Why wear black?

That's a good point, i'm surprised no-one has posted it already. So I guess this could work like motor-racing helmets; you only wear them in known "dangerous" areas. Would it be ok to prevent people wearing helmets in cars on the road? (I think this may already be illegal, but I'm not sur...

Re: helmets from Why wear black?

n.b. I was one of the first to point out that it's never going to happen, even though it's an interesting idea ... In what way interesting? Because it might work, for the reasons the Proposer has put forward. And because it challenges a lot of preconceptions (which are very evident here, as well as...

Re: Government targeting wood and coal burning.

It's not the just burning of,it's where those fuels are burned,it's the same as allowing ICE powered vehicles into town and city centres. In a rural setting where populations are low and services not as readily available where perhaps solar power or wind generator could fill the need there could be ...

Re: helmets from Why wear black?

... informed choice ... Perhaps we ought to be asking whether the existing situation of ill informed helmet and hi-viz promotion is any worse than the ban that the utilitarian proposes. Personally I know of many many more cyclists whose “lives have been saved by helmets” that I do cyclists who have...

Re: helmets from Why wear black?

Wanlock Dod That sounds at face value like a reasonable argument,the flaw in it is taking away people's freedom of choice to wear whatever they like in public. The second is the belief that such a measure will actually increase cycling. I'd bet most people who don't cycle but would like to is becaus...

TUC appears to be making the bizarre claim that a ban on helmets and hi viz clothing will in itself increase cycling uptake along with all the other far reaching benefits that such an uptake brings.

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

Many of Patel's party want to get out of the ECHR and automatically prefix "asylum seeker" with "bogus". The Government has been very reluctant to admit child refugees under Alf Dub's scheme. They have admitted 350, rather than the 3000 that was voted for by MPs. The administrat...

Re: Mudguards causing accidents....

Another random observation re mudguards is that some 'guards seem to use aluminium alloy rivets in their stainless steel brake bridges. These rapidly corrode sacrificially in the presence of water and/or salt due to galvanic effects and can result in the mudguards detaching from the bridges. Worth ...
