A well made British stove, nice to know that you inherited it from your Dad, they're a very reliable and easy to maintain stove.

Re: Buying petrol for multifuel stove in UK

Aspen 4 would be the cleanest petrol to use in your stove, to find out more on how to use your stove check out the Classic Camp Stove website.
I won't go in to details but I prefer liquid fuel over gas anytime even standard petrol.

I know people who live up there, when I say up there it's because I live 1500ks to the south. The folks I know there do not com...

Re: S.A. 5speed

Hi, Brucey, it was the later (W) model that I was referring to, after reading what you have said
I am going to go ahead and get one and as regards cleaning and relubing my s3x is about to be serviced.

Thanks, Chris.

Re: Sturmey Archer Fixed Hub

I'm happy with my s3x , done about 1800 klms in the last 15 months, no problems, I am however thinking about pulling it apart, cleaning it and regreasing it, the only downside I think is the drag in bottom gear. the chain lash on back pedalling does'nt bother me as I always use the brakes slowing do...

Re: Mudguard mounted rear-lights?
