Re: ALPKIT for touring

I have various pieces of Alpkit stuff - down jacket, headtorch, dry bags, bivi bag, all good quality and good price. I used to have a really comfy self inflating mat of theirs until I managed to pitch my tent on a lot of small thorns! :(

Re: 2019 - Twenty a day?

Was doing fine but decided to give today's ride a miss as I was worried about ice after last night's snow. Went for a good walk on the downs instead.
Current total 970 miles.

Re: 10 speed rear mech with 9 speed drivetrain

Thanks guys.
My Ergos are the post 2000 type and the rear mech would be the most recent Veloce 10 speed model as they are the most widely available so it sounds as though it should all work fine.

10 speed rear mech with 9 speed drivetrain

Will a Campag Veloce 10 speed medium cage rear mech work ok with 9 speed Veloce shifters, 9 speed cassette, front mech and chain and TA Carmina triple chainset? Silver Campag 9 speed rear mechs in good condition are very hard to find but there are plenty of 10 speed ones available. Some people have ...

Re: Repairshops South England

If you are visiting the Isle of Wight I would recommend Adrian's Bike Shop in Freshwater. Friendly, helpful and reasonably priced.

Re: Kool Stop vs. Swissstop?

Are they similar in quality and performance? Thanks! Somewhat more than 10 years ago I tried Swisstop and liked them, so they are on my better machines. Some people complain that Swisstop are expensive, but that is usually only because the Koolstop are priced in pairs while the Swisstop are priced ...

Re: Royal Park cycling - charged with offence

Going back to the initial incident, did the OP have to give their name and address to the cop, or could they have just chosen the right to remain silent? It's a bit a grey area. They could in theory arrest you, but for what, a bye law? Yes - I wonder about this.Many of these folk aren't actually po...

Re: Royal Park cycling - charged with offence

You do seem to have been treated very harshly. About 15 years ago I was stopped by a policeman for cycling in St. James' Park. It was 7.30 in the morning, I was riding slowly and carefully on a Brompton enjoying the flowers and birdsong,and the park was empty except for a policeman hiding behind a b...

Re: Grant Petersen’s Rivendell Roadini

When I inquired about them last year, I was told he's winding down towards retirement but will probably still keep doing the framebuilding courses for a little while longer as he enjoys them. I've heard good things about the Bicycle Academy courses, as well as ones run by one of the Roberts clan so...
