Re: Pernicious Anaemia VitB12D Anyone Help?

I started having symptoms in 1999. When walking uphill I was getting breathless and my heart was racing. In 2005 the symptoms got worse climbing stairs left me breathless, heart racing (palpatations) and legs like lead, exhausted but not tired. By the time I went to the doctor in 2009 all the above...

Re: chain broken - how to fix

You will need a chain rivet extractor tool. On one side of the break use the tool to push the pin out to leave the inner plates and rollers. On the other end use the tool to push the pin leaving about 1-2mm of the pin on the inside of one of the outer plates. Push the roller end of the chain into th...

Re: Kick Boxer low fat, low sugar regime for Weight Loss

Diet of the 60's and 70's I grew up during the 60's and 70's and remember very few overweight people either children or adults. Apart from the calorie intake of the "Russian Army" diet the frequency of eating was simmilar. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (or where I came from Breakfast, Dinner...

Re: External nut brake calipers

St John St. Cycles sell a long brake bolt for Shimano Dual Pivot Caliper brakes.
Put your existing front caliper on the back and replace the short bolt on the existing rear with the long bolt and put on the front.
I done this on my 1982 Mercian which does not have recesses for the brake nuts.

Also watch out for the margins ending in a wall, or the presence of road signs, electricity or telephone poles.

Re: Lidl Torque wrenches...

By the sizes of the sockets 17,19 & 21mm I think this torque wrench is probably intended as a car accessory for tightening the wheelnuts.

Re: Injury claims via the CTC

RJW would pursue claims through the driver's insurance in the case of an accident. Criminal cases like assault wouldn't be covered by a drivers insurance. So probably would not be in RJW's remit. In the event of a person being convicted of assault by a court a compensation order may be considered, b...

Re: Repair to Lycra tights?

I have made training tights and a cycling jersey with both cotton/lycra and nylon/lycra there were no issues with the thread tear...

Re: Advice on commuting from Glasgow to East Kilbride

On your commutes the traffic to and from EK should be lighter in the morning and evening respectively; as the majority of the traffic is EK to Glasgow in the morning and Glasgow to EK in the evening. ie when you are travelling most of the traffic should be going the other direction. The A730 from Th...
