Re: Where to report close passes?

Not another one! So can someone actually tell me the website where to upload these videos of dangerous drivers? https://youtu.be/_CuRvk8A6Ho

Re: Where to report close passes?

Please anyone update us on the website where I can report bad drivers? Unfortunately my aging GoPro does not capture the reg plate clearly enough, or the side of the van :x

Re: Aldi rear bike light with camera

Aldi rear bike light with camera

I rushed to buy this at launch 28th Sept. then charged it for 4 hours then mounted easily to the post via Velcro strap. It was a bright sunny commute home and many cars were giving me quite a bit of distance, maybe because the flashing and chasing light sequence had an effect? I previewed the footag...

Re: Anyone else have bad Duremes ?

I've had bad experiences with the white/cream coloured versions. They cut easily, and puncture too easily. They are very grippy however and fast and light.

Re: Oil out of trousers

Vanish doesn't work well, I found that mucoff chain spray cleaner did the trick off my white Lycra panels on my shorts.

Re: Why don't I use Wiggle?

I'm currently baffled by my text (2:03pm) and email message saying that the parcel was delivered to 'you or a neigbour' (I was in at the time and once i heard my SMS pinging me), I ran outside and started knocking on all the neigbours doors - they havn't received anything!!! What can I do now? The p...

Re: Bristol to Reading - on road bikes?

I'm hoping to ride this with ReadingCTc this summer, but I want to know if these on-road routes are similar to what you all have ridden? My objective is to use a sportive bike with 25c tyres, roll comfortable enough on the mixed terrain as plotted. If anyone can share their GPX file that will also b...

Re: National Cycle to Work day

I tried getting people at my workplace to cycle to work using their downloadable materials. HR didn't even bother circulating the emails nor put on a breakfast. It seems that: a) the weather looked bad in the morning b) first day of school for most parents c) they are on holiday I did see some new r...

Re: Hurry to the M&S web site!

I can confirm these are great value at £10.99 for graphite grey, or £11.99 navy blue. - Excellent details including side zip pocket, reflective flaps which you flop out the rear zip pockets. - The waist is high up at the back so no builders bum. - The 3M reflective trim on ankles and the fastening s...

Re: How to get rid of dirty stains / marks on white Lycra sh

Thanks for your options. I have bought Vanish Gold (for whites version). Normal price is £5.75 from Robert Dyers/Wilkinson, but I found out you can get it for £4 a tub in Sainsbury's. I'll try doing the 6hr pre soak and hand rinse in non-bio persil liquid and see how that goes.

How to get rid of dirty stains / marks on white Lycra shorts

Help, I think I set the dirty marks even more in the white panels of the Morvelo Unity Bib shorts. After a long sportive (Mega-Meon), and stopping to help fix punture, I noticed very long brown marks across the front of the thighs, not quite tyre marks, more like mucky dusty brown, maybe leaning ove...

Re: Salsa Vaya 3 vs Spa Audax vs Equilibrium

https://www.tumblr.com/tagged/salsa-vaya My Vaya is featured here in many different builds according to style, colours, usage. I bought it because it had 'Ride & Smile' decals on the inside of the stays, and sums up what you will feel when you try it. If you like tinkering and changing componen...

Re: Salsa Vaya v Kaffenback and sizing info

http://salsavaya.wordpress.com My 54 cm frame size Salsa Vaya seems to be more or less the same weight as the hefty Kaffenback in medium. Both feel comfy, the Vaya seems a little more springy but not a lot difference to be honest. Vaya wins due to the great details such as the dropouts and frame de...
