Re: Commute Advice - Hornchurch to Liverpool Street

One thing I will say about Google Map directions are the timings are generous but the distances are usually spot on.

Re: Will it work? 11-Speed MTB Shifter+ 11-Speed Road Rear Mech + Cassette?

If you went with a flat bar road shifter that might work. Have a look through the Shimano Compatibility chart.

Some secrity tags can be released with a strong magnet. -7nz_c_850w Going back to cross gender clothing, I've got a pair of women's Specialised Mitts in my collection. I bought them knowingly cause they were on sale for a ridiculously cheap price, the pink flashes don't worry me which is a give away...

Re: Wiggle commuter tyres

I've got a pair of these and although the puncture protection os good I found the grip level to be lower than the tyre it replaced. Luckily for me the loss of traction has been when I've been slowing down in a straight line.

Re: Paris Roubaix 2020

Looked at the date myself recently and also Milan-San Remo and luckily for me both races are on days when I'm not working, in the past I've booked the day off for Paris-Roubaix.

Re: Road Worlds

Don't try and watch any coverage on the UCI Youtube channel, they've geo-blocked people watching in the UK :( Had an email saying xxx event was live on their channel then clicked on the link only to be told this wasn't available in my country but there's a workround involving using a browser and VPN.

Re: Cycle Tracks in Spain?

Barcelona has over the last few year increased the numberr of cycle lanes in the central area as I noticed on my regular visits to the city, this year we took a bus from the bottom of Parrallel to Diagonal Mar and a good percentage of that journey was on bus/taxi lanes with cycle lanes running along...

Re: Does phone case/ phone type define you?

Flip case/wallet type thing that also has good shock protection holding a handset that in design is now nearly five years old. As much as I want a newer handset the price increase on the monthly outgoing can't be justified, I'm currently paying £14/month and a new contract/handset would add at least...

Re: Parking on the pavement to be banned!

I was chatting to a Parking Enforcement Officer a few weeks back as he put a ticket on a car that was completely on the pavement avoiding the double yellow lines and he said if there were no yellow lines he wouldn't have been able to ticket the car. I had an encounter with a taxi over the weekend, I...

Re: 174mph On A Bike

I read the airfield was too short to go for the outright record.
