Re: Gluing aluminium sleeve back into press fit BB

Hi

Re: What's the legal position?

Heal fast

Re: Priority at crossroads

Hi There are two aspects to this: "...who have set off at the same time as I.!" I try to avoid this scenario, which makes priority clear; the one on the major road first has priority "I've been on the receiving end of abuse from right turning drivers who have set off at the same time ...

Re: P-X EC-130E frame; what size tyres can be fitted?

Hi
If you want a PX bike then keep an eye on their pricing daily; the EC130-E R8000GS (Ultegra) was £1299.99 a few days ago, back up to £1499.99 now
Watch their clearance bikes too
