cycle storage small back yard

Hi folks, I've been trying to find a storage solution for my two road bikes. Currently live in shed with lots of other stuff, the shed is going and will be replaced with an extension (so bikes and all sorts of other stuff needs to be rehoused).

HI everyone, I assume this may have been covered elsewhere but I gave up after trawling the multitude of posts ...

Re: phone mount

I'm now seriously considering a phone holder or a Garmin with mapping. . I do have a 705 Edge which does the job. However, I am working away from home and don't have the grown up bike with me (folder instead) and use Strava to keep me on my toes. The Edge 705 although outdated is a piece of kit tha...

garmin map for France

Hi I will be cycling with some friends through France in about 2 1/2 weeks and we are using Garmin sat navs and maps. I don't have a France/Europe card for my 705, I can get one from Garmin (eg. via Amazon) for £30. Ridewithgps do their own but it seems that their cards cover maps across two areas (...

Moving this topic into a different direction.

front luggage folding bike

I am looking for a luggage solution for my folder. I currently use a beam rack and Orlieb City Panniers on the back, but as it's all on the back, not very ergonomic. I am moving from a Dahon to a Brompton and don't particularly want to buy into the nice but overpriced Brompton luggage option. Anyone...
