Re: Advice on Jack Taylor Bikes Please

This is a frame from the 60s with some more recent components. It is not in original condition like yours but the final sale price could give you some idea what yours might fetch. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Jack-Taylor-1960s-Road-Bike/264638007837?_trkparms=aid=111001&algo=REC.SEED&ao=1&...

I'm not sure if any direct Portsmouth service stops at Woking

All the London to Portsmouth trains stop at Woking. If catching a Southampton train change at Havant for Portsmouth.

I've used an MSR bottle with a Primus multi fuel stove with no problems.

Re: Titanium seatpost

I have a B17 Special in both steel railed and titanium railed versions and I can't say that I've noticed any difference in springiness between the two. I am quite light so that might influence it.

Re: Twenty a day for 2020?

I will be trying for my 8th consecutive year of 10,000 miles. This started as a one off but then somehow I got the bright idea of trying for 10,000 miles a year for 10 years! :roll: It's not got off to the greatest start with a measly 93 miles for January! This is not unexpected as we spent a week v...

Re: Titanium seatpost

Are there any noticeable practical benefits from fitting a titanium seatpost to a titanium bike? Apart from a minsculely lighter bike and a considerably lighter wallet would I notice any practical difference? Or put another way is the titanium seatpost upgrade on a Spa Elan worth going for? Get a t...

Re: 2019 - Twenty a day - did you reach your targets?

foxyrider wrote:For the year as a whole though, it was still pretty good, over 172000m climbed and over 17000km (10571mi) ridden over 163 riding days

Amazingly my annual mileage also came to 10,571 miles!! That's my highest total to date although it's only 36 miles up on last year so hardly a significant increase!

Re: Festive 500

I was considering doing it again this year but was never fully committed to it. I managed 32 miles in strong winds on Xmas Eve, no miles yesterday despite it being beautifully sunny with light winds, and now the wind is blowing and the rain beating against the window! I will get out this afternoon n...

Re: Assorted cycling books - mostly older ones

Thanks for that Steve. In that case I'll pass.
I'm surprised you have had no takers for the Ragged Staff books. I've read them all a couple of times and enjoyed them very much.

Re: Assorted cycling books - mostly older ones

I could be interested in'Cycling World, The Past Years'. How far back does this go? I remember enjoying it in the 80s but not the more recent stuff.

It went for £315 so I would think he is very happy.

Re: What happened to the small Roberts that was for sale?

Now on Ebay, start price £150. I hope he gets a better price than that. Well he has already got 1 bid so I would think he would. The pictures are a bit better than the ones he posted on here and he is prepared to post it so that should help a lot. If you want a small touring bike it's a good buy. I...

What happened to the small Roberts that was for sale?

There was quite a lengthy thread on this and it seems to have all disappeared! I can understand the seller deleting the listing but surely that doesn't remove the entire thread.
