BROKEN COLLARBONE

Have broken collarbone seems to be healing well() any ideas as to when I CAN GET BACK to riding distances-I'm looking out for warning signs like pain but how do i judge when my right hand can have consistent and hard pressure applied to change gear/brrake. At the moment I'm using the r.arm more and ...

Yup. I think I'll stick to tyres I know and love (Continental) - who remembers the old style Continental Top Touring?

Re: Repeated punctures in Schwalbe 700x28

I have hopefully found the cause - a bead wire some 8?mm long- much to my surprise.

Anyway thanks for all your replies

Re: Repeated punctures in Schwalbe 700x28

I'll follow up what you suggested. I don't think the wheel will be out of true-I've known the LBS for yrs , hes rebuilt several bikes and built 6? others and I'm certain he would have mentioned it (hes also a wheelbuilder). I do check the tube/tyre but will do it again in the manner suggested otherw...

Re: rEPEASTED PUNCTURES in Schwalbe 700x28

I'll check about the rim tape, the spoke ends, but when I started to ride it the tyres were hard, not soft. I don't have the facility for a photo, but what you said about Schwalbe tyres and wire does rather scare me. I sure aas hell won't be buying as many more on the other hand I'm too hard up to b...

Re: rEPEASTED PUNCTURES in Schwalbe 700x28

No theres no obvious bulge after inflation, it looks fine, regular, when I stop to see if I can see the bump no joy. I've not taken the latest punctured tube out yet but none of the others have been particularly near the valve I really am stumped - my guess for what its worth is that there is some s...

Re: rEPEASTED PUNCTURES in Schwalbe 700x28

yUP I'm AWARE POORLY SEATED TYRE- have seated it v.carefully and the same problems occurs -I was hopeful as tyre stayed inflated for 24 hrs but when ridden behaved as previously. I thought it might be a leaking valve- replaces tube, stayed inflated fine then when ridden went down Thanks anyway

Repeated punctures in Schwalbe 700x28

I have had repeated punctures (6) in the above rear tyre- basically every time I fit a fresh (incl. 2 new inner tubes) tube after having ridden about 200 yds. The puncture holes are not on the outside of the tube but the same side as the the valve. To put it mildly I'm getting to be a bit fed up I'v...

Re: Bending fork blades (forward)

As to what exactly happened I'm not sure I'm afraid. Its not an accident or anything similar.

I don't see why I shouldn't use the same LBS - hes provided more than satisfactory service in the past

Re: Front Fork Wobble?

It seems to occur more when leaning left, its not the loading or tyre pressure-I'm goin g to get a local bike shop to have a look at the frame-I'm wondering if its related to the headset......
