Re: Posting wheels

I used Hermes to send a frame I sold via Ebay, went with the cheaper option where I had to take the parcel to the local parcel store, only downside to that was the store is at the top of a hill and I live at the bottom of the hill.

Re: Blown Off By Big Wheel Scooter!

A few weeks back I caught up with an e-scooter on a roundabout and we both took the same exit so I though it would be easy prey to pass and leave behind. I was wrong, very wrong. We both accelerated and the scooter was pulling away from me and when I glanced down at the speedo I was doing 25mph :shock:

Re: Recommendations on protecting frame with a tape

I bought some heli-tape from Viking Tapes and also heli-tapre from biketart. The Viking Tape stuff is thicker than the biketart tape but I prefer the biketart tape and have used it for screen protectors for my fitness watch and also the lens on my GoPro.
A good clean surface to apply it to and use of a hair dryer helps a lot as does a sharp scalpel.

Re: Chain Guide 1x11 40t

I've got two bikes with R7000 rear mechs and haven't dropped the chain on the bike with R7000 chainset yet in nearly a year of riding it and that has been over some rough surfaces, the other bike is a 1x with a N/W chainring used on the commute and that hasn't dropped the chain either in three years of use.

Re: Rear Hanger - 1997 M2 Allez

soshanger.com is another site to look at, also don't just search by make and model if you can't find your gearhanger. It's time consuming but look at all gear hangers. One site I used allowed you to send images of your current hanger and they would give you a couple of possibles, think it might have been the one I've mentioned.

Drivers thinking their talent is deeper than the water at Rufford Ford, some quite small cars passing through deep water that catches out bigger cars.

Re: Planet X reviews

Had two frames from them in the past and numerous parts but have made my last purchase with them since they said the delivery address details I've been using for the last 18 months was incorrect and they produced a screenshot of the delivery address they said was wrong, nothing to do with their courier misreading the label.

Re: Aldi Cycling and Camping Stuff Coming: 15 & 18 April

Left it late and went to Aldi on Monday and all that was left that appealed to me was GT85 and cheap sunglasses so bought two of each so that when my cheap pair of sunglasses die I've got a new pair ready.

Re: Farm Lane Compton Greenfield- Cycle works

That cycle lane at the motorway junction cost £50m :) That was the cost of the motorway junction that isn't connected to the industrial estate. The first time I rode it was in the dark and had good lights so I could see where I was going etc and in preperation for Farm Lane as there is no lighting along it but I nearly turned back as I thought I'd gone round in a big circle.

Re: SPDs on a road bike

Been on SPDs since 1991 cause I had a MTB at the time and then had a roadbike at the same time and went with SPDs on the road bike as it was cheaper than new pedals and shoes for a second bike.

Re: Traffic lights giving cyclists a head start - Bristol

mjr wrote: 13 Apr 2021, 3:47pm I think that's near Broadmead and, if it's where I think it is, some arms have lanes so wide (due to being on a corner and large rigid lorries using it a lot) that it's very difficult to take the lane. Similarly, one in Cambridge I know is on a wide open crossroads where cyclists can take whatever lane position you like and bad motorists will still pass one side or the other.

It also reduces the risk of trying to reach an advanced stop box, as the green bike gives a few seconds warning that motorists are about to get a green light.
On the triangle as you come from Jacobs Wells Road going towards Victoria Rooms.
