Re: Should You Install E-Assist On Your Trike/Bike?

All I know is that for one reason and another, my cycling use was tailing off a couple of years ago & after I had a nano conversion on my Brompton, it perked up again. Nuff said, I think.

Re: safe to eat old eggs?

In all the years I've bought & eaten eggs, I 've never ever tested them once before cooking them. I can remember one occasion only when I cracked an egg and found it was very obviously unfit for consumption...

Brompton chain tensioner jockey wheels - clean or replace?

The plastic chain tensioner that doubles as the derailluer mech. has a pair of jockey wheels that I find partcularly hard to clean. Dirt seems to get impacted deep into the recesses and no amount of soaking or brushing seems to get them really clean. Today, I spent waaaay too long poking about with ...

Re: Hilary Stone

The few times I bought stuff from him, all went well. With respect, I would categorise the man as A Great British Excentric - life would be the poorer without the likes of Hilary Stone.

Edit a gpx file - advice

Hi folks, been a while since I visited this forum as I've been walking as opposed to cycling a lot recently, but that shouldn't stop me dropping by and also, saying A Happy New Year to all you lovely readers! I've been enjoying Satmap's rejuvenated Xpedition webiste, built I think on up-to-date html...

Re: Lady pedestrian fighting for life following ebike hit and run

Hope to goodness she's alright but it reads like she's badly injured... my fear (as a very happy user of an electric bike and habitual stopper-at-red-lights) is the inevitable & growing knee-jerk reaction, both from the public and the press, against e-bikes & their users. The article in The ...

Re: E bikes - do you secretly want one?

What kind of distances can these people do on their e-bikes?
I simply use my Brompton nano for the week-day journey to and fro' the railway stations, which is a total of 7 miles a day, for which it is Jolly Good! :D

Re: Co-Op home insurance, with cycling options

Thanks folks, helpful replies :-) I'm going to give the Co-Op another go, and ask them for a quote. BTW there was an interesting segment on comparison sites on Moneybox y'day. Well worth a listen on catch up, if you care about that sort of thing... they're certainly not the straightforward way to ge...

Re: Bike collection - disposal advice

More info on the bikes would help. I think that's the next step - I should pop round to friend's pa's place and itemise the collection - as you point out, it's one of life's paradoxes, that a much-loved collection which formed the centre of the deceased's life and pasttime, can be seen by disintere...
