Re: Table top map - literally

Can I ask which cafe it is please as I'd like to visit there next time. The Bakery Cafe, in Sheep St. It's a proper bakery, with home made fare. But it has a small cafe area, with a small menu. They've always welcomed me as a cyclist. The only downside is that Sheep St is very narrow at that point ...

Table top map - literally

I stopped for coffee this morning at a cafe I use occasionally (in Shipston -on- Stour). Since my last visit the owner has put up new (historic) posters on the wall. But what particularly pleased me was that he'd pasted a Bartholemews 1/2 inch map to the table top. It was Skye and Wester Ross. I lov...

Re: First Time Wheel Build . . Spoke End Position.

..................... Not sure I’ve quite grasped tensioning the rear wheel - getting the dishing right seems to trump spoke tension. Like you, David, I'm new to this skill, and concluded that truing (and dishing) seems to trump equity of tension. But, I suspect it's gong to be like learning any ne...

Re: Trike Mudguards

In answer to the question, I'd say "yes" they are effective, especially with (even small) mud flaps. Even if most of the spray misses me (except when not in a straight line) some of it does reach me, not least when there's a breeze. It's not enough to bother me if I'm wearing waterproofs, ...

Re: First Time Wheel Build . . Spoke End Position.

Hi all ........... It turns out that the spoke ends are about 1 thread below the bottom of the slot in the nipple in general in the finished wheel, and just wondered if this is acceptable, am I worrying about nothing, or if i should have used spokes of 1mm longer so the ends would be slightly above...
