Re: Name Change

Can anyone else now use the name CTC then, that would a lucky grab for some other cycling group?

Re: Name Change

Why does the CTC want to disown its heritage, it's not like it was run by Jimmy Savile or something? At least NZ saw sense with not going for that new flag rubbish.

Re: CEO's statement

The simple distinctive CTC logo is a million times better than this.

Re: Quadribikes or quadrikes which is the right word?

Yes, just a daydream really. But that first picture I added, one of them would be great for cruising around the suburb or park on a hot sunny day, and the other 364 days of the year.

Re: Quadribikes or quadrikes which is the right word?

I'm not into carbon but in this case a superlight carbon quadrike might be very interesting. Or at least 953 steel, so it wouldn't feel like propelling the weight of two average bikes.

Re: Quadribikes or quadrikes which is the right word?

Bike, trike, quadrike. For the motorised versions: motorbike, motortrike, motorquadrike.
The word quadbike sounds incompetant, like a child saying "more betterer" instead of just "better than".

Re: Question aimed specifically at male cyclists!

I don't know about all these strange clothes - I just wear normal underwear, jogging bottoms and ride a leather saddle usually, no problems ever (assuming the saddle is set up right and is compatible with me).

Re: Brooks Team Pro restoration (well, more "tarting up")

Proofide is made for saddles, dubbin isn't. The one good thing about dubbin is it's not neatsfoot oil.

Re: Brooks Cambium

Now there's a carbon railed version, looks like their Italian masters want Brooks to abandon leather.

Re: Driving while usiong mobile phone

From what I have observed these things called cars do not function unless the operator holds a rectangular object against the side of his or her head.

I did it the other way on a bike with a stuck seatpost, with thin pedals to gain some reach distance and it was worth doing.


shorter cranks?


Yes, that's also something i'll be doing (on the other bike I put longer 172mm cranks on)
