Re: Follis beborex brakes

Good old Brucey ! - I've never heard of these brakes, but have one on a recently purchased Jack Taylor.

Re: For Sale, 2 Jack Taylor Bikes sold

I've bought the green Jack Taylor :D so no longer available. Other bikes from this seller are still available as posted by Mercianman. Bikes have been well looked after and are in good condition.

Re: 2013 - 2016 Cannondale CAADX SAFETY RECALL NOTICE

Latest news on twitter is mid January! Google the email address of the CEO and contact him!! Mid Jan is the latest ETA for replacement forks AFAIK. But to be fair to Cannondale if the reported 10,000 affected bikes is correct following the fatality, to manufacture 10,000 replacement forks in the fa...
